‘Game On’ the online casino game may have captured football punters attentions in the football-less summer months, but the start of Serie A is on the horizon.
The biggest fight in Serie A looks likely to take place at the bottom of the table this season, with the newly promoted team Livorno (1/2), Sassuolo (11/10) and Verona (6/4) all amongst the favourites. To oppose any of the three to go straight back down, you need to find a team that might underperform this year.
Genoa have finished 17th of 20 for the last two seasons, missing relegation by a place both times, but have avoided the drop by a relatively comfortable six and eight points. Therefore, combining the three newly promoted teams in a treble to go straight back down looks a worthy bet at around 13/2.
Top-three betting revolves around last year’s top three Juventus, Napoli and Milan, but there may be a little bit of value in backing Fiorentina to usurp at least one of them. Last time Napoli played Champions League football they could only manage fifth place in Serie A, whilst Fiorentina made a giant step forward last year and 3/1 or better looks value to take another rung up the ladder.
If there’s an unusual bet to be had, then it concerns the best of Emilia Romana and Best of Lombardia group betting. Parma are 9/10 favourites to beat Bologna and Sassuolo in the former with Milan 1/3 to beat Inter and Atalanta in the latter. The double looks well worth an investment.
If you can’t quite draw yourself away there are plenty of great football themed games at online casinos. As well as ‘Game On’ a slot named ‘Shoot’ may also take your fancy for those breaks in play to keep your adrenaline surging.
At the top of the table, Juventus bid for their thirtieth Serie A title – and third in succession. Despite only scoring a similar amount of goals as Napoli, Roma and Fiorentina, Juventus finished nine points clear of their nearest rivals; testament to the tightness of their defence. A third title looks likely and the current 20/21 on offer is probably fair.
