Few of Europe’s major leagues look as interesting as Serie A this season. Not only will we see Juventus line-up under a rookie head coach in the shape of the much-loved Andrea Pirlo, but with progress being made by the likes of city rivals Internazionale, AC Milan plus everybody’s second-favourite team Atalanta, the Old Lady’s vice-like grip on the Scudetto could finally be under threat this year.
With the Juventus hierarchy deciding that the title alone is no longer enough to please them, Maurizio Sarri has been disposed of and replaced by the inexperienced Pirlo, but the new boss has at least been given reinforcements. Alvaro Morata rejoins the club on loan from Atletico Madrid, whilst Arthur joins from Barcelona with Miralem Pjanic heading in the opposite direction.
Arthur isn’t the only former Barcelona midfielder that has moved to Serie A this summer though. Internazionale continue their rebuilding project under Antonio Conte by bringing in Arturo Vidal and with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez in front of him, many expect the Nerazzurri to compete for the title this year.
With plenty of teams in Italy’s top tier considering themselves good enough to fight for the top spots in the league, the race for European football should be equally as enthralling as well as the fight for survival in the bottom half. Whatever it is, we’ll have you covered with our Serie A tips and predictions right here at Squawka Bet.

La Liga Inplay betting tips
Show me a punter who doesn’t love the inplay options now available to them and we will show you a liar. It used to be so difficult to get a mid-match bet placed, but now with the easy to use apps available, betting on the action as it unfolds in front of your eyes has never been easier.
As the odds change dependent on what’s happening out on the pitch, so do your thoughts on what will happen next. Our social media team often picks out the best in play bets for you to place, be that in Serie A or any of the myriad of other leagues we cover. But more on that later.
Full Time Results
Still the most popular market when it comes to match betting, this is simply betting on the outcome of the game – be that a home win, away win or draw. It’s always worth checking the form before placing your win-draw-win bet – just because a team is sitting pretty towards the top of the table in the later stages of the season, it doesn’t mean that they haven’t been in dreadful form and haven’t lost their last five games and vice versa, teams towards the bottom can often be in better form than you may imagine based on their league position.
It’s worth noting that these differ from correct score bets, where you predict the final scoreline of the match. These bets offer greater value than simply better on the outcome but the reason for that of course is the fact that there is a much higher margin of error.
Both Teams to Score
Arguably the second-most popular bet with punters after the Full Time Result bets is Both Teams To Score. Here, you’re simply backing both teams to find the net within the 90 minutes – or alternatively you can back ‘no’ on this bet if you expect one of the teams to keep a clean sheet. Atalanta have to be the team to back in this particular market in Serie A. La Dea shipped 50 goals in 38 games last season but were the highest-scorers of all of Europe’s major leagues with no fewer than 98 goals scored.
To Score a Header
Some markets that have emerged as particularly popular in the last few years is the method with which you can back a team to score or indeed a player to score. There are fewer better sights in football than a well-timed header nestling into the back of the net and you can now back players to manage this during a match. One man to look out for in this market in Serie A is Roma’s Edin Dzeko, who managed six headers from his 16 league goals last term.
Player Total Shots
Squawka is of course known for it’s stats-based analysis and that’s why we’re delighted to see so many player stats markets available on betting not just in Serie A, but in every one of Europe’s major leagues at the moment. You can now, for example, bet on a player to take a certain amount of shots within 90 minutes, or even on them to reach a certain amount of those strikes on target. The most shot-happy player in Italy’s top tier last season was Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo who totalled 208. That’s 66 more than any other player!
Player Total Tackles
And another player stat market you can now bet on is player total tackles. Backing a player to win a certain amount of tackles in a match could be seen as risky – but not if you do your research. You’re best off looking for defenders or midfielders who are set to come up against-dribble happy opponents, but also of course it’s intelligent to look at who the best tacklers in the league are. Last season, Stefano Sabelli led the way with 83, but that wasn’t enough to stop his Brescia side from being relegated.
You can back many different bookings bets these days too, from which team will receive the most bookings, how many total cards will be shown in the match, how many booking points there will be and indeed you can even bet on certain players to be shown a card. Ismael Bennacer, Gianluca Mancini and Nahitan Nández picked up 14 yellow cards each last term in Serie A, with Roma’s Mancini picking up a red to boot.
Expecting a player to be caught behind the line of defence and see the flag raised on him a few times? You can now back players to be caught offside a certain amount of times in a match and what’s more, with VAR in operation over in Italy, those players are likely to be caught out more than ever now. Perhaps compensating for his lack of pace, 38 year old Zlatan Ibrahimovic was caught offside more often than anyone in the league last season with an average 1.1 times per game in his 18 appearances.
Corners have taken on a special significance within betting in recent years, much like cards bets. You can often combine the two for match-specials, but if you check the stats Roma average 6.63 corners per game last season, the highest in the league, whilst Lecce conceded the most with an average of 6.76 per 90 minutes.
VAR has been in operation in Serie A in the last couple of seasons and has proven to be as controversial as we have come to expect across the whole continent at this point. Different brands offer different VAR specials, so check what’s available if you expect the cameras to wreak havoc on the big games this season.
