Juventus completed the 2011-12 season unbeaten in Serie A and claimed a momentous 28th Scudetto, beating the likes of AC Milan, Inter, Udinese, Napoli and Roma to top spot. After the Azzurri made the final of Euro 2012, hopes are high for another strong domestic campaign in Italy; here are the favourites with Titan Bet to win the title this season.
Juventus are champions and are certainly the team to beat. Antonio Conte has instilled a fighting spirit in his Bianconeri side, who made up a lot of the Italy team this summer in Ukraine and Poland. Andrea Pirlo proved himself as arguably the best deep-lying playmaker in the game in the Euros and again will be crucial to the Turin team’s chances. Juve have strengthened with the additions of Mauricio Isla, Kwadwoah Asamoah and others and will look to retain their trophy; Titan Bet have them as favourites at odds of 2.15.
AC Milan relinquished the Scudetto last term and it is a transitional period for Massimiliano Allegri’s troops. Experienced campaigners such as Gennaro Gattuso, Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi left the club, whilst star duo Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were sold to Paris Saint-Germain. The Rossoneri will look to strengthen before the end of the window, and have already brought in Riccardo Montolivo. Live betting will be available on most matches, TitanBet have Milan as second favourites at odds of 3.60.
Inter are next in Titan Bet’s odds, with a 5.50 chance that the Nerazzurri can return to the top of Italian football. The team have appointed youth team coach Andre Stramaccioni as their leader, and have brought in the likes of Matias Silvestre and Rodrigo Palacio to the team. The Giuseppe Meazza outfit are outsiders, but will hope to return to the glory days.
Napoli are next, and will look to qualify for the Champions League again once more as a minimum. Walter Mazzarri’s men won the Coppa Italia last season, whilst proving dangerous opponents both at home and on the continent. The loss of Ezeqiuel Lavezzi will be felt, but the likes of Edinson Cavani and Marek Hamsik mean the Naples team are still a contender; Titan Bet have the San Paolo side at odds of 17.00.
Roma are going through a transition also, with ambitious American owners investing in the team. Zdenek Zeman is the new coach and Mattia Destro and Michael Bradley are the new signings that have the Giallorossi fans looking towards the new season with expectation. Titan Bet fancy the capital-city outfit at odds of 17.00.
As the odds get longer the likes of Lazio and Udinese enter the fray at 26.00, Fiorentina are 67.00 whilst Torino are rank outsiders at 751.00.
