To Win Outright
Defending champion Inter Milan moved four points clear of city rivals AC Milan at the Serie A summit after bossing the first half of the season. They are also through to the knockout stages of the Champions League after 11 years, where they will play Liverpool. They scored 104 goals last season in Serie A, a record in their domestic league history.
Inter won 19 home games in 2021 and has never done better in a single calendar year in Serie A. Losing Antonio Conte, Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi was not ideal, but Inter improved under new manager Simone Inzaghi.
They signed Denzel Dumfries, Edin Dzeko and Hakan Calhanoglu, and the summer transfers look to be fitting in and finding form along with the rest of the team.
They are the most consistent team in Italy, losing just one game all season. They have the best attack with 49 goals scored in 19 games and the second-best defense with just 15 goals allowed.
They are priced at -350 to defend their title according to the latest soccer odds and that’s still great value given the circumstances. Their recent form has seen them produce convincing wins and they the team who will be regarded as the best in the division by their peers.
Inzaghi and his players have both looked quite comfortable, growing in form throughout the season and now looking to be in a particularly good period. Inter is ready to fight for titles in Italy and in Europe.
Pick: Inter to win Serie A title (-350)
To Finish in Top 4
In a season of many more downs than ups, five wins without conceding a goal in all competitions is a positive for Juventus ahead of the second half of the season.
They are sitting fifth in the league with 34 points picked up in the first half, just four points behind Atalanta and five behind Napoli. They kick off the new year at home against Napoli and we expect them to win that match and close the gap on the top four.
A top-four finish will earn them a Champions League spot, which is their main objective right now. Juve’s heavy reliance on individual brilliance was a huge mistake, but smartly they changed that system and they are now stretching the pitch both laterally and vertically, being able to manipulate the defensive structures of their inferior opponents.
They have a tough schedule to start the year and will play Napoli, AS Roma and AC Milan in January. This is a crucial period, but we expect them to grow because they are fully packed with world-class players.
The tactical switch has worked wonders and if they continue on the same note, they will surely end the season in the top four.
Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene has ruled out big-money transfers in the winter transfer window. Juventus can only get new players on a temporary deal or on a free transfer so don’t expect many changes inside the team, but the core will remain the same.
Juventus is our bet to finish in top four and we will include them a lot in our soccer picks and parlays in the second half of the season.
Pick: Juventus to finish in top 4 (-165)
Top Goal Scorer
This market is very underrated, but this is one of the markets with huge value. Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic has been in scintillating form, netting 18 goals in just 20 games for his club, an amazing record when you consider he is still just 21 years old.
His consistency in front of goal has resulted in links to a number of big teams across Europe. He’s leading the Serie A top scorers’ chart with 16 goals, followed by Lazio star striker Ciro Immobile with 13 goals.
Arsenal has made an offer of $79m for Vlahovic in a bid to sign him in the January transfer window. Vlahovic is also a target for Italian side Juventus, but his salary demand of $9 million has reportedly stopped the Old Lady from offering a bid. Still, he might get a transfer in January so there’s no value betting on him to win the Serie A Golden Boot. If you’re betting online, you should always stay informed and follow the latest news about the players.
Immobile is one of Europe’s elite strikers. People often label him as a box player, but he spends a lot of his time with his back to goal, operating in the wide area and trying to make space for teammates to exploit. He’s a beast, he’s scoring goals for fun and he’s very consistent.
