Serie A

Serie A Season Betting Preview

After incurring just three losses all season en route to an 87-point finish and their fourth consecutive league title, Juventus has once again emerged as strong -163 favorites in soccer futures betting at Bet365 to top the table in the upcoming Serie A season.

The Old Lady went undefeated at home last season, and were also dominant during Champions League action, reaching the final where they fell 3-1 to Barcelona.


Juventus Wins Scudetto

With AS Roma losing to Catania in their last match Juve have captured the Serie A crown for the third straight season. However, the race for a top four finish and an automatic Champions League berth next season is still up in the air, as are the teams to be relegated and the league’s top goal scorer.


Juventus Loss Gives Roma Title Hope

Juventus lost in their first match of the month and while they are still MAJOR favorites to win the Scudetto AS Roma still has hope. Juve sits five points clear of Roma, as those are the only two teams with betting odds for the league title.

Bet365 has Juventus with odds of -6600 to win the Italy Serie A title with Roma at +2000.


Scudetto in the Bag for Juventus?

There is still a lot of soccer to play, but barring a big collapse Juventus should win the Italy Serie A title. They are 11 points clear of second place AS Roma and while they do not have the easiest schedule in March it is far from the toughest.

Can Juventus Be Caught? Odds Say No.

Juventus has a nine-point lead over AS Roma in the Italy Serie A table and Roma may be the only team that can catch them. However, in Roma’s last match they played to a surprising 0-0 home draw against Parma, which kept them from gaining ground on Juve.


Juventus to Maintain Control

With Juventus’ win over AS Roma in their last match they now have an eight-point lead over Roma and the Scudetto is theirs for the taking. There is a good chance they will keep a firm grip on the league lead since they do not have a tough month of January. Their toughest match is facing 10th place side Lazio at the end of the month.
