Not Even Second
Despite just having won the Italian Serie A title for the first time in 11 years, AC Milan is offering a +225 price in the sportsbook to repeat. The Rossoneri are listed behind Inter Milan and Juventus, the previous two champs.
Like Benjamin Button’s, this is also a very curious case. Manager Stefano Pioli is coming back for AC Milan. The team’s top two scorers, Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud, are coming back. Goalkeeper Mike Maignan, who led the best defensive unit in the league (31 goals in 38 games), is also returning. In other words, this could be considered a bargain.
Even moreso if the Rossoneri managed to sign Jesse Lingard (Manchester United) and Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City). Rumor has it that their chances are very good. Precisely, making smart, non-expensive signings is among the things AC Milan needs to remain on top.
The Nerazzurri are in control of the soccer lines thanks to a +190 price. Like AC Milan, most of the squad that managed to finish as the runners-up will be back. That includes Lautaro Martinez, who scored 21 goals. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re in the pole position to sign Paulo Dybala.
Besides finishing only two points behind the Rossoneri, Inter Milan also won the Coppa Italia. The Nerazzurri humiliated Juventus in the Grand Finale 4-2. They also eliminated AS Roma and AC Milan.
The Vecchia Signora is going through a rebuilding process, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be able to put up a good fight. Next season will be Dusan Vlahovic’s first full season with the team. In 2021-22, he scored 17 goals while playing for Fiorentina and seven more once he moved to Turin. He’s the main reason for you to consider including the Bianconeri in your soccer picks.
Federico Chiesa, who missed most of last season, will return stronger than ever. With Dybala out, Chiesa should be Vlahovic’s partner in crime. Some reports link the team with superstars such as Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria and Jorginho. Signing them would definitely improve their chances, but for now, they’re offering a +200 price.
No other team is offering a betting online price under +1000. Therefore, Napoli, AS Roma, Atalanta and Lazio could be considered dark horses.
Napoli (+1200) finished third, only seven points behind AC Milan. Victor Osimhen had a breakthrough season and led the team’s scoring chart with 14 goals. Expectations around him are very high.
Any team managed by Jose Mourinho is worth considering. AS Roma (+1600) finished the Serie A in sixth place but won the Conference League title after defeating Feyenoord in the Grand Finale.
Atalanta is offering a +2500 price. Last season, the Black and Blues finished in eighth place, but the previous three campaigns they finished in the podium. Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel are one of the best attacking duos in the league
Last, but not least, there is Lazio (+5000). Summing up, the Eagles have Ciro Immobile, who finished as the league’s top scorer with 27 goals. That’s it. If Immobile has another good season, Lazio could become a problem.
