Serie A top four odds latest: Can revitalised Roma leapfrog Atalanta?

After 22 rounds of fixtures, the Serie A season is really beginning to heat up. At the top of the table, it appears that it will be a straight shootout between Inter Milan and Juventus for the title while at the bottom, just four points separate Leece in 14th and Empoli in 19th.

The race for the top four also looks set to have a thrilling finale with just five points separating Atalanta in 4th and Torino in 10th. As the race for Champions League football is so tight in Italy this season, the Serie A top four odds are chopping and changing by the week with all the teams involved struggling for consistency.

The race for the top four took a significant turn earlier this month when Jose Mourinho was sacked by Roma and replaced by Daniele De Rossi. Roma have since won two games on the bounce and now trail Atalanta by just a point. Have those two results made them favourites to finish inside the top four? Let's take a look at the latest Serie A top four odds.

Serie A top four odds – Current outrights

*The following list excludes Inter Milan, Juventus and AC Milan who all have a 10+ point lead on fifth place.

Atalanta – 7/4

Atalanta currently have pole position in the race for the top four in Serie A after a strong first half of the season. They are no strangers to Champions League football having played in the tournament for three consecutive seasons from 2019-2022. Last season they finished 5th in Serie A so their current position shouldn't come as a shock to anyone.

One thing that could get in Atalanta's way in the second half of the season is the lack of a goalscorer. Their top scorer this season is Ademola Lookman who has seven goals to his name. Lookman is currently away at AFCON 2023 with Nigeria which makes Atalanta look even more toothless in front of goal.

Napoli – 3/1

Last season's Serie A winners have had a fall from grace this season that nobody could have seen coming. Ever since Luciano Spalletti left the club in the summer to manage the Italian national team, things have very quickly turned sour for the champions.

The players who lit up the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona last season have flattered to deceive so far. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who was compared to Maradona himself last year, has registered just five goals and three assists in Serie A this season while Victor Osimhen has struggled with his fitness and has only managed seven league goals to date – he scored 26 last season.

Napoli currently trail Atalanta by four points so the situation isn't irretrievable, they just need to find their best form and fast.

Roma – 4/1

Jose Mourinho's rollercoaster of a journey at Roma came to an end in the middle of January 2024 and the team are already performing better on the pitch again under the guidance of club legend, Daniele de Rossi. The former midfielder has managed two wins in two games but there are tougher tests to come.

Romelu Lukaku has done well in Rome since signing for the club in the summer and is just one goal away from hitting double digits for league goals for the season and is still in the race to win Serie A top scorer. They are currently the closest team to Atalanta and are scheduled to play them in the third-to-last game of the season. Could that ultimately prove to be a Champions League playoff?

Lazio – 9/2

Roma's city rivals, Lazio, are the fourth favourites to finish inside the top four and they are perhaps the form team at present. They are unbeaten in their last five Serie A matches (four wins and a draw) as Maurizio Sarri looks to get his team playing close to their levels of last season when they finished second in Serie A.

Goals have been a major problem for Lazio this season and their top scorer is Ciro Immobile with just four league goals to his name. On the flip side, they have been defensively excellent and have the third-best defensive record in the league. If they can keep that up while adding more of an offensive threat, then they will take some stopping.
