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.

Juve lost to Napoli, who sits in third place in the league table, but it is hard to imagine they will slip again this month. In the four matches they play in April they do not face one club that is in the top 14 and two of their matches are facing teams currently in the relegation zone.

In their next match Juve is at home and is big Italy Serie A betting favorites at -600 facing Livorno, who is at +1800, and a draw line at +550.

Roma has stayed in the league race, as they have won six straight matches. They must gain some ground on Juve before their huge encounter with them at home on May 9th. Their next three matches are not easy ones facing eight place side Atatlanta, fourth place side Fiorentina, and 11th place side AC Milan. Bet365 has odds on their next match with Roma as the big favorite at -400 and Atatlanta at +1100 with a draw line of +450.

Napoli is in third place in the league table and while they are coming off their biggest win of the season over Juventus their place in the league table is, pretty much, set. They are eight points back of Roma and nine points ahead of Fiorentina, so it would be a big surprise if they did not finish the season in third place.

Fiorentina has the last automatic Champions League bid, as the fourth place team and they have a five-point lead over Inter Milan and Parma. Their big match is facing AS Roma at home on April 19th. They cannot take ninth place side Verona for granted, as they face them in the next match on the road after beating them 4-3 at home earlier this season. Bet365 has Italy Serie A betting odds with Fiorentina as the road favorite at +125 with Verona at +225 and a draw line of +220.

Inter and Parma still has a shot to crack the top four and they face each other in the middle of the month.
