Inter Milan Top Serie A odds as Champions Juventus Look Vulnerable
Things are wide open at the top of the Serie A table at the midway point of the 2020-21 season, with as many as five or six teams still in with shot of lifting the trophy, writes Nick Dorrington.
Juventus have been the dominant force in Italy over the course of the last decade, winning each of the last nine league titles but they only did so by a single point last season. It is more than possible that long run of consecutive titles will come to an end this time around. Indeed they are only second favourites in the Serie A odds, shown in the betting tables above.
Juventus certainly seem likely to finish on their lowest points total since 2010-11, the last time they failed to win the title. That may be due to increased competition towards the top of the table more than an outright sign of decline. Rookie coach Andrea Pirlo does now seem to have them pointing in the right direction after an uncertain start to the season.
The reality is that it wouldn’t be a surprise if Juventus won the title again, just as it wouldn’t be a shock if any of the other teams challenging towards the top of the league were the ones to lift the trophy finally. They all have very similar results and metrics. The top four or five could easily be separated by just a couple of wins come the end of the campaign.
Inter Milan were the team who ran Juventus closest last season and they are the favoured choice with the bookies right now to go one better and claim this season’s title. Antonio Conte’s side are a potent attacking force who only once failed to score through the first half of the season. They are decent enough defensively in a high-scoring league to balance things out.
Atalanta have become a neutral’s favourite for their similarly swashbuckling approach. It is one that has led them to consecutive third-place finishes and a run to last season’s Champions League quarter-final. They have never won Serie A, but have shown no signs of slowing this season and are likely to be right there down the final stretch.
AC Milan have a far more storied history but have struggled to live up to that history in recent seasons. While they have been far from disastrous, finishing in the top six in each of the last four campaigns, they haven’t been the league-challenging team their past suggests they should be. That has changed this time around, as they have carried their strong form down the back end of last season into a strong first half of the 2020-21 season.
Roma appear to be hitting the internal self-destruct button after what had been an impressive campaign through the new year. Their metrics remain strong and if they can avoid too much on-pitch disruption, they are still very much in the hunt. They and a Napoli side who have had problems with consistency (but also look good on underlying numbers) are arguably slightly more outside bets that the four previously mentioned teams.
Lazio finished fourth last season and while they haven’t looked as strong as the already highlighted clubs, they are still right there on their tails and might be able to put together a good run of form to push forward into top four contention.
There was a huge 11-point gap between the last of the seven teams already mentioned and eighth-placed Sassuolo last season. A similar divide has already started to open up in 2020-21. It is difficult to see a team capable of bridging it. Hellas Verona or the very same Sassuolo are eventually likely to occupy eighth position, but some distance from those ahead.
At the other end of the table, things were tight at the halfway stage of the campaign, with just six points spanning the bottom seven.
Crotone, Cagliari and Parma occupied the relegation spots at that point, and they also had the three worst sets of underlying numbers. That is not to say they will necessarily be those to go down. Genoa, Spezia and Torino are very much at risk as the Serie A odds for relegation attest, although Udinese have looked good enough to pull away as the campaign goes on.
Fiorentina and Sampdoria are couple of the other names likely familiar to semi-regular followers of Serie A, and they will probably both end up in the relative nowhere of mid-table, without European places to strive for nor relegation worries to concern them. There they will be joined by Bologna and solid newcomers Benevento.
