Betting on Serie A got a whole lot better with the rise of the dormant league giants. AC Milan and their city rivals Inter have re-structured the whole team with their new signings over the summer and both teams have been impressive so far. Juve remain unchanged with regards to power and performance, squashing anyone who crosses their path. Napoli secured back to back wins with their most recent victory over Atalanta while Roma lost at home to Inter. No major clashes are taking place this weekend and the favourites should focus on collecting the easier points of the season. We’ll take a closer look at the statistics you should be looking to make smarter and more informed betting decisions when betting on Serie A.
Bet on Lazio vs AC Milan
Lazio started their season on the wrong foot when they drew with newly promoted club SPAL. However, they collected all three points on the road and how host AC Milan in an attempt to secure back to back victories. AC Milan won both of their opening matches and if they keep their momentum going, they’ll surely secure a Champions League spot, after a seven-year absence.
Lazio are the slight favourites in this encounter, having odds of 2.50 to win the match. A tenner on the Rossoneri will potentially bring back £28.50 and a draw no bet on AC Milan is just a little over evens, priced at 2.02. The Rossoneri found the net five times in their first two matches, which makes betting on both teams to score worth considering. The bet has odds of 1.50 while over 2.5 goals has odds of 1.68.
Their last two meetings both ended with less than 2.5 goals scored in the game and odds for that repeating itself at the Stadio Olimpico are priced at 2.17. But, if you’re looking to back AC Milan with even higher odds than a straight win, try handicap betting. If you place a £10 bet on AC Milan to win with a goal difference of two or more, you’ll potentially make £57.50.
Bet on Juve
Juve looked a little shaky in their first half against Genoa and were losing two down within the first seven minutes of the game, a score Juve betting fans are not used to witnessing. However, Juve didn’t give up and managed to get the equalizer before going for the break.
Juve host Chievo next and odds for the Champions to win are too low to consider, as they’re currently at 1.18. Even handicap betting will not make it worth your while as a tenner will only potentially return £14.80. Juve will need to win with a goal difference of three or more to make it worth your while, as odds for that are priced at 2.38.
It’s been seven years since Chievo beat the Champions and with the Bianconeri in full throttle, it’s going to be hard seeing Chievo getting anything out of this encounter.
Bet on Napoli
Napoli recorded two consecutive wins since the start of the season and will travel to Bologna in their next quest for all three points. The last time this fixture took place at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara, Napoli put the home side to shame as they squashed Bologna 1-7. Bologna emerged victorious in their most recent match against newly promoted Benevento.
Napoli have odds set at 1.35 to beat Bologna, however, double chance on Bologna might be worth pondering, as odds are priced at 3.20. Bologna will be looking to avoid a defeat to Napoli at all costs to overcome last seasons’ humiliating loss, however, Napoli have proven to be too strong for many of the Serie A teams. Champions League starts next week and Maurizio Sarri will ensure his best weapons won’t be overused against Genoa this weekend.
Handicap betting on Napoli has odds priced at 1.92 and 3.50 if they win with a goal difference of three or more.
