Serie A betting tips and predictions 2024/25 

Prediction 1: Juventus vs Como: Both teams to score – Yes @ 6/5 (2.20)

We kick off our Serie A betting tips with Juventus' home match against newly promoted Como, who are managed by Cesc Fabregas. Admittedly a league lower, Como netted in 84% of their league games last season. Juventus meanwhile conceded five goals in their last five league games. With Juve big favourites to win the match, Como have little to lose and we expect them to have an attacking mindset making odds of 6/5 (2.20) look very attractive.

Prediction 2: Genoa vs Inter Milan: Lautaro Martinez @ Odds TBC

Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez has been mentioned as an outside bet for the Ballon d'Or after firing Inter to the title last season and then spearheading Argentina's Copa America triumph. We're not quite buying that but his performances have been first class – as has his goalscoring. As such, it's hard not to fancy him to score he. He's just bagged five goals in six games at the aforementioned Copa America whilst he netted 24 league goals last season. Genoa's backline won't be relishing this opener.

Prediction 3: Verona vs Napoli: Napoli to win @ 19/20 (2.05)

Napoli saw quite the drop off last season after winning the title the year before; they've moved to address that this summer though appointing Antonio Conte as manager. We expect him to make a winning start against Verona. Verona ended last season winning just two of their last six home matches whilst Napoli – who, as we touched on, weren't great last season –  took six points from them. They've also not lost to Verona in any of the last seven head to head meetings.

What is Serie A?

Serie A is the Italian equivalent of the Premier League. It's a league for the top teams in Italian football, and currently, it consists of 20 teams. The clubs which finish 18th-20th are transferred to Serie B. The league is also referred to as the “Scudetto” because the winners aren't only awarded the Coppa Campioni d'Italia but also with a scudetto (a particular patch the winners wear the following season).

The tournament is round-robin style where each club meets every other club twice in the season, once at home and once away from home. The league itself is considered one of the top leagues in the world, like the Bundesliga, La Liga, etc.

Key fixtures in most Serie A seasons include the Milan Derby played between AC Milan and Inter Milan, the Rome derby played between Lazio and AS Roma, and the Turin Derby which is played between Juventus and Torino.

Anytime any of the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Lazio or Atalanta play one another in Serie A it tends to bring in a big viewership as these teams are either established as the best teams historically in Italy or have been challenging for the Serie A title or Coppa Italia in recent seasons.

Serie A Winners

Since 1929 Italy's top division has been referred to as Serie A and the first-ever winners of the competition were Ambrosiana-Inter. For a long time in recent years the Serie A title had been dominated by Juventus but that period has now come to a close with the Milan clubs, Inter and AC, having won three of the last four.

Here are some more recent winners of the scudetto.

  • Inter Milan – 2023/24
  • Napoli – 2022/23
  • AC Milan – 2021/22
  • Inter Milan – 2020/21
  • Juventus – 2019/20
  • Juventus – 2018/19
  • Juventus – 2017/18
  • Juventus – 2016/17
  • Juventus – 2015/16

Our Summary on Serie A Predictions

Some people might think that it wouldn't be unusual to wager on one of the regular Serie A winners, but you would be wrong. The stranglehold Juventus had on Serie A is seemingly over for the foreseeable future. In 2024/25 Inter Milan, AC Milan and Napoli feel like the sides most likely to compete for the crown – although Juventus will hope to get back among the title contenders sooner or later too. Throw in a host of other sizeable clubs, such as Roma and Lazio, and Italy is possibly the toughest of Europe's big five leagues to predict.
