Serie A Betting
If there’s any nation that is passionate about club soccer, it’s Italy. The Italian Serie A is filled with dramatic moments, highly tactical play, and fierce rivalries that make it an exhilarating league to bet on.
Serie A was the ultimate league in the ’90s, attracting superstar players and ambitious coaches alike. The 2000s saw a decline in Italian soccer, with many clubs in financial disarray and the biggest players moving on to other clubs. Luckily for fans worldwide, the quality is back and the Serie A outright odds are closer now than they’ve been in a decade.
Juventus just managed to pip Inter Milan and Atalanta to their eighth consecutive title last season, helped by no other than the legendary Ronaldo. It was the closest race to the Scudetto and the Coppa Campioni d'Italia that we’ve witnessed in years.
The La Sette Sorelle, or The Seven Sisters, are the teams to beat in the league and after a couple of years off the pace, Juventus, Milan, Inter, Lazio, Roma, Fiorentina, and Napoli (replacing Parma) are joined by Atalanta and look set to compete for trophies at the highest level.
Inter Milan, in particular, have spent big in the transfer market recruiting Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, and Ashley Young from Manchester United (to name just a few). Juventus have of course got the ageless Ronaldo and midfield maestro Paulo Dybala, as well as a new coach in Andrea Pirlo. AC Milan has Ibrahimovic scoring tons of goals, and Atalanta has emerged as a surprise package – nearly beating PSG in the Champions League and finishing third in the Serie A season.
For the first time in a long time, it looks like we have more than a one horse race and, of course, we can look forward to the intensity that only the Italians can bring to the fierce rivalries between Juventus and Torino, Inter and Milan, and Lazio vs. Roma.
