With most European domestic leagues having there champions at hand for 2017/18 season, Serie A seems to carry on the excitement up until the last game. This is because Napoli are not giving up on title, keeping Serie A winner betting odds so close.
The top two in Italy are back on title race just four games before the end of the season. Napoli are one point behind table topping Juventus, following a dramatic last-gasp header from the defender Kalidou Koulibaly into Gigi Buffon’s box. Just one week earlier Serie A winner betting odds were totally in favour of the Old Lady to wrap up the seventh consecutive Scudetto. Yet now things turned over at online betting sites in Italy all of a sudden. Bookmakers offer very close odds for both teams, raising the unpredictability on who will win 2017/18 Serie A title.
The race is on until Matchday 38
According to online sportsbook news in Italy Sarri’s side have dropped more points than they would have liked in recent weeks, drawing at Inter Milan, Sassuolo and AC Milan in three away games. When Napoli lost six points, the door opened for Juve to claim top spot. But the race was not over then, Napoli remained resilient not willing to give up hope of catching up Juve. On Matchday 33 Juve lost two points, drawing with Crotone, while Napoli came from behind to beat Udinese (4-2). Last weekend Napoli clinched (1-0) victory at Juventus, leaving only one point between the two.
4 fixtures to determine Serie A winner betting odds
Napoli have four relatively easy fixtures on the way against three teams sitting in the mid of the table including Fiorentina, Torino and Sampdoria. Their final Serie A game for this season will be against Crotone 17th placed and still under relegation threat. On the other hand, Juventus will have to go to Roma and Inter along with two games against Bologna and Verona in lower tier table spots. Since Napoli represent remarkable consistency this season, with only two defeats, all spectators will follow Juve’s remaining campaign, as it will determine Serie A winner betting odds.
Why Napoli need the championship so badly?
Serie A title will bring back for the first time the old days when the legendary Diego Maradona in 1989 won Serie A for Napoli. Since then, a generation of the club’s supporters have grown up without seeing their club lift the Serie A trophy. The motivation among Sarri’s men should be much higher than Juve team.
