The race for the Scudetto is on and it has been exciting. There have been some strange results and some great football displays in Serie A.
The champions, AC Milan, are still strong and consistent. And yet, they have sought to bolster their squad with the signing of Belgian young sensation, Charles De Ketelaere from Club Brugge, who managed 14 goals last season. Divock Origi, who arrived from Liverpool will certainly offer a decent option up front. Stefano Pioli has retained the core of his young team for the new campaign.
Inter Milan finished behind the Rossoneri the last term. But they have now returned to get the player that helped them win the title two seasons ago: Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian finished as the team’s top scorer and assists provider in the 2020/21 season.
Juventus has not gone on a spending spree. They have added experience to the side in Angel Di Maria from PSG as well as Paul Pogba from Manchester United. Gleison Bremer will attempt to fill the void left by Giorgio Chiellini and Matthijs de Ligt in defence.
Napoli remains the dark horse. They will hope to go a step further than their late capitulation last season. They are also in transition, having bid farewell to some key players in the summer. However, they are enjoying a fine start to the new campaign.
The season promises plenty of drama and intensity. It will also remain a great hunting ground for punters. And now, with six Gameweeks gone, some observable patterns have emerged that could help interested punters earn good amounts from their stakes.
Here are four excellent bet options in the Serie A this season:
AC Milan Home Win
Since Pioli joined the Rossoneri, he has stabled the ship, while getting the best of every player. And after a successful last season, the Italian manager will be keen to repeat the feat this season.
Just like last season, they remain unbeaten in six matches, winning four of them. In truth, they have not been overly stellar this time around. The defending champions had fallen behind as early as the second minute in the first game before rallying back to win 4-2. However, they have defeated their City rivals this season, showing intent.
Rafael Leao has finally come into his own this season, scoring three goals. Pioli’s men are very steady in defence, yet with plenty of pace and trickery up front. They currently sit in second place, the same points as the leaders, Napoli.
More importantly, they have been perfect at the San Siro, winning every match. They lost just three times at home last term, their first in November. It is fair to expect them to keep up the trend this season.
This is a fantastic option for every punter interested in Serie A this season.
Over 1.5 Goals In Matches Involving Udinese
Against the odds and expectations of many, Udinese has enjoyed a brilliant start to the new season. Apart from the opening day loss to Milan- where they showed resolve- they have stayed unbeaten.
Andrea Sottil, who joined the Bianconeri in the summer, has got the team playing some eye-catching football. Only Napoli has scored more goals than them in the division. Indeed, they are only one point behind the leaders, Napoli.
One good business done this summer was to make permanent the signing of Beto. The Portuguese forward scored 11 goals in 28 matches last season. And in six matches this term, he has scored four.
Similarly, Destiny Udogie, on loan from Tottenham, has come in and taken well to Sottil’s formation, scoring two goals from his wing-back position.
They are very expansive, in attack, while able to shrink the play in defence. Sottil’s men have made remarkable progress so far this season. Of course, it remains to be seen how far they will go.
They have recorded four over 1.5 matches so far this season. Hence, it is a sensible option in games involving Udinese.
Over 2.5 Goals In Matches Involving Inter Milan
Inter will have their sights on regaining the title after finishing two points behind their City rivals last season. Simeone Inzaghi has only gone on to modify the style of play observed under Antonio Conte.
This season, they have looked to deepen their squad with fringe signings, to cater for their Champions League commitments.
The renewed partnership between Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez has continued to blossom. Even then, Edin Dzeko remains a capable complement. Marcelo Brozovic and Nicollo Barella continue to lead the creative unit.
While they have won four matches in Serie A, there are still concerns about their quality, especially against the big sides. Their two losses have come against Milan and Lazio- teams they would consider challengers.
However, their attacking potency remains pivotal, a reason they have averaged two goals per match this season.
The Nerazzurri have recorded five over 2.5 margins in six matches played. This is a must-have option for every intelligent punter with eyes on the Serie A.
Under 3.5 Goals In Matches Involving Fiorentina
Fiorentina has flattered to deceive in recent times. They tend to wipe the floor with the top sides, yet they appear very lacklustre against the mid-table teams.
They have struggled with scoring so much this season. Only four teams have scored fewer goals than them, and two are currently placed at the bottom of the table.
Luka Jovic has not been able to find his feet since joining from Real Madrid. The 24-year-old has scored just once for the Viola.
Vincenzo Italiano is under pressure to turn the tides at Fiorentina with his side failing to win any of their last seven matches across all competitions.
They have scored two goals or more just once this season and recorded under 3.5 margins in five out of six games.
