Bookies’ Serie A Odds Take No Chances With Juventus
Juventus have won Serie A in each of the last six seasons and remain odds-on favourites with the bookmakers to do so again in the 2017-18 season, writes Nick.
The Old Lady secured last season’s title with a round to spare, but it will be interesting to see if they can keep their successful run going in the face of an increasingly competitive field.
Juventus required just 87 points to win Serie A by a 17-point margin in the 2014-15 season but that margin was reduced to nine points in 2015-16 and just to four points last time out despite the fact that they themselves obtained 91 points on both occasions.
Roma were their closest challengers last season but it is difficult to judge how well equipped they are to compete at the top this time around following the arrival of former Sassuolo coach (and Roma player) Eusebio Di Francesco and the departure of a couple of key performers. They will be attractive to watch but results may not necessarily follow.
In contrast, Napoli have been a picture of stability in the off-season. Maurizio Sarri remains in charge for a third consecutive campaign and the playing squad has also been kept intact. They finished just five points behind Juventus last season and will again expect to challenge.
Under new Chinese ownership, Milan have been Serie A’s biggest summer spenders, laying out in the region of €200 million to improve a squad that finished sixth last season. The money looks to have been well-spent on a good mix of youth and experience, but they will need to gel quickly if they are to offer a strong challenge for the title.
Across the city, Inter Milan spent big last summer but only ended up seventh at the end of a campaign in which two coaches were sacked following the departure of another in pre-season. Luciano Spalletti should be better placed to sort things out after leading Roma to second last time out, but regardless of personnel there always seems to be inherent instability at the Nerazzurri.
Atalanta were Serie A’s surprise team last season, finishing fourth under the command of the wily Gian Piero Gasperini. They have lost a couple of their best performers and will have the added strain of European football to deal with this season but have bought well and shouldn’t be discounted in the race for a top-six finish.
Lazio also finished in the top six last season and have had a relatively quiet summer that should see them solidly placed to compete towards the top of the table again.
Below these seven teams lie a group of three or four clubs who could push for a top-six finish if they put together a strong campaign but are more likely to occupy the positions just below.
Fiorentina finished eighth last season but have lost the excellent Federico Bernardeschi to Juventus, while none of Sampdoria, Torino and Cagliari have strengthened significantly enough to suggest they are capable of pushing higher. Indeed, Udinese will hope to barge their way past one or two of those sides to secure their first top-10 finish in four years.
Newly Promoted Sides Favourite For Drop In Serie A Relegation Betting Odds
At the other end of the table, newly promoted sides Benevento, Spal and Hellas Verona represent three of the first four favourites in the Serie A relegation betting odds, with the first-mentioned pair marked at odds-on for the drop. Benevento have spent a solid amount of money in preparation for their debut Serie A campaign but that is no guarantee of a continued top-flight berth.
Crotone are one of the other favourites for relegation despite putting together an excellent second half to last season that saw them recover from a haul of just nine points from their first 19 matches and a nine-point gap to safety to finish 17th following a final-day victory over Lazio. Sustaining such form without such a clearly defined objective could, however, prove troublesome.
Genoa seem attractively priced in the Serie A odds to go down given how dreadful they were during the second half of last season but the weakness of other teams will probably be enough to keep them in the division. Bologna and Chievo also aren’t necessarily immune from a scrap for survival.
