Juventus Favourite In Bookies’ Serie A Odds For Eighth Win In A Row
The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo by Juventus, odds-on in the Serie A odds, has brought fresh attention to Italian football ahead of the 2018-19 season, writes Nick.
Italy was once arguably the strongest league in European football and home to the best players from across the globe, but its star faded somewhat in the aftermath of the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal and its path back to strong viewership has been a slow one.
While the quality and entertainment of the league has increased over the last few years, the outright dominance of Juventus has been an impediment to wider interest. The Bianconeri have won Serie A in each of the last seven seasons. They faced a very tough opponent last season in the form of Napoli but still eventually emerged triumphant.
The arrival of Ronaldo from Real Madrid certainly won’t encourage the chasing pack in their hopes of wresting Juventus from their crown. It will undoubtedly bring new viewers to the league and make it a more attractive proposition for broadcasters in developing markets. It could help to bring in new investment flows that ultimately benefit the league as a whole.
Juventus are the clear, odds-on favourites with the big UK bookmakers to secure an eighth consecutive title and it is difficult to form a particularly convincing argument against them. Yet while there isn’t a standout amongst their would-be challengers, there are at least three teams who could contend if things fall into place for them.
Napoli came closest last season, finishing just four points shy of the champions after becoming the only other team to secure over 90 points in a season during Juventus’ run of titles. They have lost coach Maurizio Sarri and midfielder Jorginho to Chelsea, but their transfer activity and the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as their new head coach point to a team who are keen to push Juventus all the way again.
Roma, third favourite in the Serie A betting odds, put together a promising first season under the command of Eusebio di Francesco in finishing third last time out. Their summer business followed their usual model of selling big and replenishing the squad with young talents and relatively cheap experience. They may not start strongly but can be expected to make progress as the season develops.
Inter Milan came out of the blocks quickly last season and topped the table in mid-December before falling away and just sneaking into the top four with a thrilling victory over Lazio on the final day of the campaign. They have invested well to add quality and numbers to Luciano Spalletti’s squad and can be expected to be more consistent this time around.
Just behind last season’s top four, Lazio and AC Milan will both be looking to take a step forward into the Champions League qualifying positions. Lazio had the best attack in Serie A last time out and have made some potentially interesting signings, while Milan will be betting on the goals of former Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain to fire them upwards.
Atalanta, triple figures in the Serie A odds for outright winner, weren’t quite able to match their fourth-place finish in 2016-17 last season. They still finished seventh and can again be expected to challenge on the outskirts of the top six, alongside the likes of Fiorentina, Genoa, Sampdoria, Sassuolo and Torino. Udinese have finished outside the top 10 in each of the last five seasons, but their scouting department is capable of throwing up a gem or two capable of powering a better campaign.
At the other end of the table, 90s favourites Parma are back in Serie A just four years after bankruptcy demoted them to the fourth tier, but are likely to be involved in a season-long scrap for survival. Last season, the three promoted clubs occupied three of the bottom four positions, with two of them relegated, and it is therefore no surprise to see Frosinone and Parma as the favourites in the Serie A relegation odds for the drop alongside SPAL, who just survived last season.
A bit more is expected of Serie B champions Empoli, who have been thrown in with Bologna, Cagliari and Chievo in the group of the teams who can aspire to relative safety but could nevertheless be dragged into a relegation dogfight by a ban run of form.
