Sassuolo vs Empoli (Friday, 19:30 BST)


Sassuolo’s season so far has been an exceptionally promising one, and they are currently flying in the heady heights of fourth-place. After two wins, a draw and a loss they have seven points, while they have hit the back of the net nine times. The fact they have conceded seven times will worry the team, but they face an Empoli side that are struggling in 16th-place in the league. Just a single win along with three goals scored is very poor, and another loss would only compound their woes. Interestingly, Sassuolo do offer some value at Evens, with the current success of the side something few would have seen coming.




Fiorentina vs SPAL (Saturday, 17:00 BST)


This is a very interesting match-up, with the two sides establishing themselves in the top 10 at this early stage of the season. Fiorentina were involved in a very high-scoring opener as they demolished Chievo 6-1, they then beat Udinese 1-0, before seeing that scoreline turned around as they lost to Napoli. Their opponents arrive in great form, with SPAL currently sitting in second-place in the league with nine points. A 1-0 defeat at the hands of Torino is the only blemish on their copybook so far, although their defeat was away from home, with the side perhaps struggling when on the road. Fiorentina offer little value, but backing there to be less than 1.5 goals in a match in which neither side has been involved in games with a glut of goals for a few weeks could prove a shrewd bet. 




Sampdoria vs Inter Milan (Saturday, 19:30 BST)


What a season it has been so far for Sampdoria as they currently sit in fifth in the league. The six points they have accumulated from their three games means they are just three short of SPAL in second, and another win would only see confidence rise further. What has been most impressive in their campaign so far is the fact they have fired in eight goals and conceded just once. This, in comparison to the awful form of next opponents Inter Milan, is something that will see the home side confident. Inter have been woeful so far, and they have won just once, drawing one and losing the other two. Five goals scored and six conceded means they are already eight short of Juventus at the top and, as the reigning-champions continue to prove, they do not often drop points. While Inter will be desperate for a win, their Champions League clash against Tottenham could see players fatigued, and with Sampdoria’s impressive record in mind, we feel this will be a game the home side will win.




Torino vs Napoli (Sunday, 11:30 BST)


Torino come into this game on the back of what was an uplifting 1-1 draw with Udinese. The five points they have picked up means they are in mid-table and going under the radar so far. Four goals scored and four goals conceded alludes to the fact that they are fairly good going forward, but they need to find a way to plug the gaps at the back if they are to move forward. Napoli by contrast sit in third with nine points, already three short of Juventus at the top. They, like Torino, have been fairly good going forward after hitting six goals, but they have conceded six times, meaning this one could see goals. Napoli won their first away game of the season against Lazio, but they were hammered 3-0 by Sampdoria in their next match on the road. Torino have lost once at home and won once, and all of this means that this game is quite difficult to call. However, Napoli know the importance of winning this one as they simply cannot afford to see the gap between themselves and Juventus stretch to six points this early in the season. With this in mind, we are backing Napoli to pick up all three points. 




Frosinone vs Juventus (Sunday, 19:30 BST)


Frosinone are currently struggling massively in Serie A and they will have been a side earmarked by many as relegation candidates. After four matches they have picked up just one point and, most worryingly, they are yet to score, and have conceded 10 times already. They now face their most difficult test of the season in the form of Juventus. The reigning-champions have scored nine times in four games and are still perfect at the top of the table. Cristiano Ronaldo hit his first two goals of the season in their last game, and this could see the shackles well and truly shrugged off by the star, who may now go on a scoring spree as he so often does, and unfortunately for Frosinone, this could start with goals against them. With this in mind, we are backing Ronaldo to add more goals to his tally.

SERIE A LIVE STREAMING & IN-PLAY BETTING (18+. T&CS APPLY)

One of the biggest changes in football betting is the move from the betting shop to online.

There is an incredible array of live streamed matches from across the globe every single week, and customers in the UK now have access to matches in one of the most popular league competitions there is - the Italian Serie A.

SERIE A BETTING TIPS: HOW TO BET ON OUTRIGHT MARKETS

Outright betting on Serie A remains a great way to make a profit while betting on the top flight of Spanish football, but of course you have to have some patience because these types of bets are not ones that pay out quickly, unless you have placed them during the final days of the season.

Serie A outright markets are straightforward - you are betting on subjects of league winners, relegation, top-four finishes etc, and these Serie A prediction markets are available all season long so you can wait to see how a team performs before backing them in one of these markets. So what markets are available? Read on...

Serie A Winner

The Serie A Winner market is exactly what the title says – you are betting on who will win the top-flight of Italian football. This market goes live very early on – you could bet on the 2018/19 Serie A Winner market before the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign – and the earlier you bet on it, the bigger the price you will get in most instances. Juventus have dominated the scene for several years now, and while Napoli have managed to close the gap over the course of the 2017/18 campaign, this market is probably one to ignore because there is not much in the way of options.

Top 4 Finish

The Top 4 Finish market gives you the opportunity to bet on a team finishing in – you guessed it – the top four places in Serie A. It does not matter if the team you back finishes first, second third or fourth, as long as they are in the top four at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Now, you are not going to make much in the way of a profit by backing a team like Juventus or Napoli in this market, but the race for Champions League football is a competitive one with several teams looking to fill the four places and that means even some of the big clubs are available at backable prices before and during the season. But of course, as the league season pans out these odds are likely to fluctuate and in many cases get shorter, so you really have to get your timing right to get the best possible odds.

Relegation

Those first two markets were looking at the top end of the table, but betting on the other end of the Serie A standings is also a popular form of outright betting. The relegation market is simple – you are betting on a team to go down at the end of the season. It does not matter if that team finishes 18th, 19th or 20th – as long as they head down to the second tier at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Newly-promoted teams tend to be short odds in this market, but the bottom half of the table has tended to be very congested in recent years and that has meant there were a whole host of clubs dragged into a relegation fight. Some teams have lost that battle and have handed punters a tidy return on their outright bets. 

To Finish Bottom

While the Relegation market asks you to pick a team that will go down, the To Finish Bottom market requires you to select a side that will be propping up the rest of the Serie A table at the end of the season. You will see bigger odds in this market than you will in the Relegation one because you do not have three league positions that can potentially hand you a winning bet, but if you are betting on this market you need to do it before a team gets cut adrift at the bottom, otherwise their odds will shorten quickly and dramatically.

Top Goalscorer

The race to be Serie A’s Top Goalscorer is always a competitive one. The Italian top flight may not boast the name value that the Premier League and La Liga does when it comes to strikers, but there are always several contenders for the Golden Boot each season and that means you can even get backable odds for prolific forwards like Ciro Immobile and Gonzalo Higuain. Prices will shorten as the goals flow though, so this is a market you really need to consider jumping on early to get the best possible price.

Serie A Betting Tips: How To Bet On Serie A Matches

Betting on Serie A matches has never been easier and there has never been so many markets to choose from for every single game – but which markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit?

Bettingpro.com offers Serie A betting tips for a whole host of matches in Italian football’s top tier and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…

Winner

Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market is available for every football match you can possibly bet on, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive match – for example, Juventus v Napoli or Genoa v Cagliari. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.

Handicap

The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Lazio are 3/13 to beat Benevento, but that price offers very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back Lazio to win the match, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Lazio -2 to win the match is available at 17/10. So what does the -2 mean? It means Benevento will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Lazio must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Lazio will win by a single goal so you could go Benevento +2, which is available at 11/10. That means if Lazio win the match 1-0 on the field, Benevento will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.

Half-Time/Full-Time

Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe Juventus and AC Milan will be drawing at half-time but fancy Juventus to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/Juventus, which is currently available at 3/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Napoli to win by 1 goal, Napoli to win by 2 goals, Napoli to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Napoli to beat Sassuolo at 1/3, which is hardly tempting, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Napoli to win by 2 goals in this instance would offer a higher, and more appealing, price of 3/1.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Real Madrid to beat Atletico Madrid but want a bigger price than 10/11. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 11/4 on Real to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Atletico to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Juventus host AC Milan you may be expecting ‘The Old Lady’ to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Juventus/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 2/1. It does not matter if Juventus win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market is available for every match in top club and international competitions, and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Ciro Immobile and Mauro Icardi will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.

SERIE A HISTORY

Serie A was introduced as the top flight of Italian football back in 1929 and although it has endured controversy in recent years - namely a match-fixing scandal - it remains one of the most popular competitions in not only European football, but world football too.

Inter Milan were crowned the inaugural champions in 1929/30 and since then 16 different clubs have lifted the Scudetto, with Inter winning it 17 more times to sit second in the all-time rankings alongside city rivals AC Milan on 18 title successes.

Juventus are the most successful team in the history of Serie A, despite having a championship victory stripped of them due to match-fixing, and following their title-winning 2016/17 campaign 'The Old Lady' have now go their hands on the silverware on 33 occasions. That latest title success was their sixth in a row and that eclipsed the previous record they had share of five straight Serie A crowns.

Roma and Napoli have been Juventus' main rivals in recent years but they are two of the least successful teams in Serie A history having only won the Scudetto on three and two occasions respectively, while AC Milan were the last team to win the title - in 2010/11 - prior to Juve's run of dominance.
