Bookies’ Serie A Odds Suggest Juventus Unstoppable
Juventus, massively odds on in the Serie A odds, have not totally convinced during the first half of the Italian season but still look on course to secure their sixth consecutive Serie A title, writes Nick.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side signed a key player from each of their two closest rivals from last season ahead of the current campaign. But while Gonzalo Higuain (pictured) and Miralem Pjanic have both made solid individual contributions, Juventus are yet to get the balance completely right, particularly in midfield, where they are still adjusting to the departure of Paul Pogba.
Juventus still possess the best defence in Serie A, as well as a sufficiently potent attack to power them to victory over the large majority of opponents. Moves to add more midfield options are likely to be made during the winter transfer window and while their margin of superiority looks to be decreasing, it would still take a brave man to bet against them.
Roma and Napoli again look likely to be the closest challengers to Juventus, but still long odds against in the Series A betting odds. Both play attractive and effective football and have performed solidly to date despite the departures of key players. Napoli, coached by the impressive Maurizio Sarri, look particularly well placed to come on strong during the second half of the campaign.
Just behind, Lazio and Milan both enjoyed much better starts to the campaign than had been expected, although time will tell whether either of them is capable of maintaining their form through the remainder of the campaign in order to challenge seriously for a top-three finish. Milan, certainly, may struggle to do so given that they are giving up more shots on target than they are taking and have also benefited from some good fortune at times.
Atalanta have been the season’s surprise package to this point under wily coach Gian Piero Gasperini. They finished 13th last season but ended 2016 inside the top six following an impressive run of eight wins in nine matches through September, October and November. What’s more, their underlying statistics suggest that the club has a solid chance of holding station through the second half of the season.
Fiorentina and Internazionale both disappointed in the opening months of the campaign, with the latter changing coach and the former seriously considering it. Both found a bit of form towards the end of the calendar year and could yet put pressure on the current occupants of the top six. Fiorentina, especially, are better than they have shown to date.
The fall guys are likely to be the Torino side of England goalkeeper Joe Hart. They have a vibrant attack but possess the worst defensive record in the top 10 and it is difficult to see them maintaining their goal output at a sufficient level to make up for that defect over the course of a full season.
Serie A Relegation Odds Suggest Little Hope For Struggling Trio
At the other end of the table, there are four teams who even at this relatively early stage look likely to be involved in an internal battle to avoid the three relegation spots.
Newly promoted sides Crotone and Pescara both lost their primary goal-scorer prior to the start of the season but have suffered equally at both ends of the pitch in the top flight. Palermo only just avoided the drop last season and likewise have a variety of problems in both attack and defence. Their notoriously combustible president Maurizio Zamparini fired two coaches in the first few months of the season, seeking a miracle cure that may not exist. That trio are, as I write this, all justifiably heavy odds-on with the bookies in the Serie A relegation betting.
No team picked up fewer points than Empoli during the second half of last season and a chronic lack of goals this time around has put them in a very vulnerable position just above the aforementioned trio. If any of the others manage to put together a run of results, it is unlikely Empoli will have much in the way of a response.
It is difficult to see any other teams getting sucked down into the relegation battle. Sassuolo leak goals but have enough quality going forward to keep themselves afloat and won’t have the drain of Europa League participation holding them back during the second half of the season. Bologna and last season’s Serie B champions Cagliari likewise have sufficient merits to maintain a gap to those below.
So expect an exciting second half of the Serie A season and keep returning here to check out the odds comparison tables for the Italian league above.
