Juventus Celebrate Winning Serie A in 2015
Serie A Betting Tips
Italy may not be in its mid-90s heyday, but Serie A is still one of the top leagues in the world. Although match-fixing scandals have rocked some of its bigger teams in recent years, Italian clubs remain the second most successful in Europe's elite club competition, and have provided the players for four FIFA World Cup wins.
From a betting point of view, things get interesting towards the end of the season when supposedly 'arranged' draws can mean games kicking-off with quite extraordinary prices, particularly in the second tier.

Serie A Teams 2015/16 Betting Guide
Massimiliano Allegri’s side are heavy favourites to make it a famous five titles this season, despite star striker Carlos Tevez plus midfield linchpins Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo moving on in the summer. Mario Mandzukic and Paolo Dybala have arrived to fill the void left by Tevez, with World Cup winner Sami Khedira signed to star alongside French international Paul Pogba in midfield. Juve’s imperious home form makes them very difficult to overlook for the title once again this season. The Old Lady have gone through the last two campaigns without losing a single match at the Juve Arena, winning 35 of 38 games in the process. Of the chasing pack Roma look best placed to mount a serious challenge, with charismatic coach Rudi Garcia under pressure to close a 17-gap on the champions from last term.
Three additions from the Premier League should help Roma sustain a title challenge with more credibility. Wojciech Szczesny, Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah have all arrived in the Eternal City on loan, boasting Champions League pedigree to match their talents. Clamping out frustrating draws will go a long towards helping Roma better last season’s return of 70 points. Roma drew 13 times in 2014/15, more than any other side in the top seven.
Serie A’s Champions League Race
Roma will also play a key part in the toughest race to call in Serie A this season, the fight to claim a Champions League place by finishing in the top three. Lazio came from nowhere to win the race for third last season, but face intense competition to replicate that tremendous result this time round.
That’s down largely to big investment from Inter Milan, who have allowed Roberto Mancini to splash the cash in search of a return to Europe’s top table. Geoffrey Kondogbia, Stevan Jovetic and Joao Miranda’s signatures are a statement of intent from the Nerazzurri, who were well off the pace in 8th last season.
City rivals AC Milan will also be desperate to improve on a hugely disappointing 11th and have also splashed the cash in search of success. AC Milan’s new coach Sinisa Mihajlovic will have Colombian marksman Carlos Bacca leading the line, although Champions League qualification may be a step too far in his first season at the San Siro.
A far safer bet to chase down a top three finish are Napoli, who have replaced Rafael Benitez with a relative unknown outside Italian shores in Maurizio Sarri. The former Empoli chief can still count on Gonzalo Higuain, Lorenzo Insigne, Marek Hamsik and Jose Callejon to lead the charge, a quartet with a point to prove after falling short of high expectations last season.
Serie A Relegation Battle
Serie A should be at its most unpredictable this season thanks to a shake up in the bottom half of the table. Newly promoted Carpi and Frosinone are both riding high after back-to-back promotions, while the final new side Bologna are a familiar face with a storied history.
Only one Serie B winner has been relegated from Serie A the following season in the last 10 years, so write off plucky Carip at your peril. Deciding who will finish in the bottom three looks more tricky than ever this season, with Empoli, Chievo Verona and Atalanta in particular having plenty of reason to sweat if they start poorly.
