The 2019/20 Serie A season was brought to an abrupt halt on the 9th of March due to the outbreak of coronavirus. It forced the Italian government to stop all professional sport in the country and the date of the 9th of April was set as a possible return to action for football. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances this target was not met and the restart of the season was delayed.
Thankfully, things have improved in Italy and the Serie A has been scheduled to return on the 20th of June. This Serie A return date looks highly likely to happen and football fans in Italy and across the world will be celebrating the Serie A restart.
Continue below as we take a look at the latest Serie A title odds, our Serie A betting predictions and where to bet on Serie A.
1. Italian Serie A Odds
We begin our Serie A betting tips by analysing the potential league winners. The Serie A odds with Bet365 have Juventus out as favourites, priced at 2/5 to lift the Scudetto.
Juventus have dominated Italian football in recent years, having won Serie A in each of the last eight seasons. It is an incredible achievement and they will be eyeing the opportunity to win an incredible 10 titles in succession. Given their tremendous recent success, it will not come as a surprise to know Juventus are the most decorated team in Italy in terms of the Scudetto, having won it a total of 35(!) times. You only have to look at the number of titles won by the teams in second place, 18, to understand the overall dominance of the Bianconeri.
Their current squad is full of talented players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Giorgio Chiellini, Paulo Dybala, Miralem Pjanić, Leonardo Bonucci and Blaise Matuidi. The Serie A winner odds strongly fancy Juventus and it is easy to see why with their quality and experience of winning titles.
However, there is one team which will be hoping to push them all the way. You must go back to 1999/2000 to find the last time Lazio won Serie A and that was only the second time they have done so in their history. Could this be the season Lazio claim their third Scudetto?
The Serie A title odds suggest they can push Juventus close this season and Lazio are available at 5/2 with Bet365 to win the 2019/20 Serie A title. Many calcio tips are pointing to the fact Lazio have Italian international striker Ciro Immobile in their team and his goals could be enough to propel them to the top of the table. Not only do Lazio possess quality in attack but they are also strong defensively. Luiz Felipe, Francesco Acerbi, Ștefan Radu and Thomas Strakosha are all part of a good defence that will be hoping to keep opposing attackers at bay for the remainder of this season.The ambitions remain. It is obvious that at this moment we have thought little about football.[...] When the time to get back on the field is getting closer, we will have to be good at preparing ourselves mentally because there will be 12 very important matches to continue our dream. - Ciro Immobile for Goal website
Lazio’s penultimate fixture this season is away at Juventus and it could be that game which decides the Serie A title this season.
Outside of Juventus and Lazio, it is difficult to make any further Italian Serie A predictions in terms of the Serie A title winner. Inter Milan will be hoping they can push both teams close but to do so they are going to have to win the majority of their remaining matches. In fact, Inter Milan may need to win every game if they are going to have any chance of finishing top of the table. The Serie A winner odds have Inter Milan out at 9/1 with Bet365 to win Serie A this season.
2. Serie A Predictions
There are several factors to look out for when creating Serie A betting tips. The key is to search for underlying trends using statistics and a good example is the both teams to score market. There are four teams which really stand out in this category and they are Bologna, Atalanta, Napoli and Cagliari. Look out for matches with any of these four teams involved and chances are you are going to see both teams find the back of the net.
Atalanta are a good team to watch if you are considering betting on the over 2.5 goals market. Sassuolo and Genoa are also worth looking out for in terms of games with over 2.5 goals.
When making Serie A betting predictions, you should always use statistics to your advantage. In addition, team news is particularly important. For example, if Lazio were to lose Ciro Immobile to Injury or suspension it would seriously affect their chances of winning games. With that in mind, let's take a look at the Serie A odds for top goalscorer.
3. Serie A 19/20 Top Goalscorer
We have already mentioned Ciro Immobile a few times in this article and with good reason. The Lazio striker finished as joint top goal scorer at the end of the 2017/18 campaign when Lazio were third in the league. They will be hoping to finish in at least second place this season and will be relying on the goals of Immobile.
If you can find any Serie A betting tips available online going against the chances of Immobile you may choose to ignore them, as the Serie A odds for top goalscorer have him at just 1/6 with Bet365.
However, if there is one player who is capable of achieving the impossible it is Cristiano Ronaldo. The Juventus forward will be hoping to lead his team to glory and claim the second Serie A title of his career. Ronaldo scored 21 goals last season but it was not quite enough to finish as the top goal scorer. That would have hurt the Portuguese international. Never one to settle for second best, Ronaldo is sure to come back from the enforced break refreshed and eager to finish as the top goal scorer in Serie A.
Bet365 offer 9/2 for Ronaldo to be the top scorer come the end of the 2019/20 Serie A campaign.
