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.

AS Roma suffered their first loss of the season against Juventus and Serie A odds favor them getting back on track at home against a solid Genoa side in their next match. Midweek Bet365 has AS Roma at -300 with Genoa at +850 and a draw line of +375. They have a tough match at the end of January facing the surprise of the Serie A so far in Verona, who is fifth in the league table.

Verona is unbeaten in their last four league matches, but they have a tough month ahead. After facing Napoli they are on the road to face AC Milan and then are on the road to face AS Roma.

Napoli is the betting favorite facing Verona on January 12th at -105 with Verona at +280 and a draw line of +250

Inter Milan has fallen down the league table with one win, two losses, and three draws in their last six matches. Italy betting odds have them as big favorites in their next match facing a Chevio side that is near the relegation zone. Inter is posted at -225 at home with Chevio at +600 and a draw line of +333.

AC Milan is the lone Italian team in the knockout stage of the Champions League, but as of January seventh they are only in 11th place in the league table. Can they get back in the Serie A race? Big question, but besides facing surprising Verona at home they face a couple of teams this month that are struggling in Cagliari and Sassuolo.

With their win over AS Roma the odds for Juve have increased to win the Scudetto for the second straight season. They have Serie A odds of -1000 to win the league followed by AS Roma (+800), Napoli (+1200), and Fiorentina (+5000). Inter Milan is 18 points back of Juventus, but still has Italy betting odds at Bet365 as a major long shot to win the league title at +15000.
