Odds to Win Serie A: Juventus Favorites to Claim Ninth Straight Scudetto

Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus FC in action during the Italian Serie A 2018/2019 match between US Sassuolo and Juventus FC at Mapei Stadium on February 10, 2019 in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

With the start of the 2019-20 Serie A less than two weeks away, when Parma takes on reigning champion Juventus on August 24, betters are looking at which teams have the most chances of lifting the coveted Scudetto.

Will titleholder Juventus confirm its superiority over other traditional sides like Inter Milan and AC Milan and claim an unprecedented ninth title? Or could Napoli finally put an end to a long dry spell lasting since the 1989-90 season, when they were last crowned champs? Read on to learn more about our predictions and get the most bang for your hard-earned buck.

The Old Lady Look to Replicate a Near-Flawless 2018-19 Season

When it comes to Juventus, the record speaks for itself. After all, the powerful Bianconeri are the most successful Italian side with 31 titles and have won the last eight consecutive titles, which evidently makes them the main contenders to claim a first-ever ninth straight Scudetto.

Additionally, the northern Italian squad was convincingly consistent last season, remaining undefeated for much of the competition. With coach Maurizio Sarri now at the helm and important new signings in the likes of Matthijs de Ligt, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey, in addition to five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo in top form and hungry to surpass his impressive record of 21 goals last season, Juventus looks extremely confident to be the victors once again.

However, after coming close to lifting the Champions League trophy in recent years, which would be their first since 1996, the Old Lady could very well choose to focus their efforts continentally, thereby harming their chances of claiming the Scudetto. Nevertheless, betters seem confident in Juventus having plenty of firepower for both tournaments, placing them at just -250 odds to be Italy’s champion.

With New Signings Lukaku and Godin, Inter Milan Now Boasts a Solid Defense and Attack

A club that dominated Italian football in the mid 2000s, claiming five consecutive titles from 2005 to 2009, Inter Milan is looking to distance itself from Mauro Icardi-related controversy and regain its position as Italy’s main squad.

So much so that they signed Antonio Conte, one of the country’s best coaches with three Serie A titles under his belt, and brought in Uruguayan centre-back Diego Godin to make up a solid defense alongside Skriniar and De Vrij.

Conte stripped Icardi of his captaincy and has made it clear that he no longer wants the Argentine striker, who may be linked with a Juventus transfer. And with the signing of Belgian forward Romelo Lukaku from Manchester United, the Giuseppe Meazza team may have very well solved the attacking issues they endured last season.

This places the Nerazzurri as the second favorites to come out as the Serie A victors at +475. In a setting, however, without Juventus, Inter Milan prevails to win at +110, just slightly ahead of Napoli, set at +115.

Will Napoli Finally Go All the Way?

Speaking of Napoli, they were the main challengers to defy Juventus’ dominance last season, though the Old Lady still managed to secure an 11-point lead. This time around, with renowned coach Carlo Ancelotti leading them, the Partenopei have a very solid defense – possibly Italy’s finest – after bringing in Kostas Manloas from Roma to play alongside Kalidou Kouilbaily.

Traditionally very strong up front, the southern Italian squad also has a threatening attack with players like Mertens, Insigne, Callejón and Milik, Napoli’s leading scorer who shook the nets 17 times last season. Odds favoring the Partenopei stand at +500 to claim their third Scudetto – their first since the 1989-90 season.

Italy’s top four is completed by AC Milan, tied with rival Inter Milan at 18 Scudettos. The Rossoneri, whose last Italian triumph was in the 2010-11 season, failed to secure a spot at this year’s Champions League and had a very shaky start to the season last year.

Nevertheless, things picked up and the San Siro team had a 10-match undefeated streak. Coach Marco Giampaolo’s squad have some interesting players in their lineup, such as the attacking duo comprised of Piatek and Suso, in addition to goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who may be linked to a PSG move, Lucas Paquetá, Franck Kessié and Theo Hernández. The Rossoneri are all the way out at +2000 odds of going all the way.
