Now that you know more about how and where to bet on Serie A matches, we thought it would be worth sharing some ideas about how you can become a more successful punter by building a sound betting strategy.
Tip one is follow the odds. If you are looking at a fixture between Inter and Monza and the odds are weighted heavily in Inter’s favour, then it’s a strong indicator that backing Monza to win should be avoided. In other words, don’t chase big prices just because they are big.
Serie A is an incredibly competitive league, so betting in the goals markets is always a smart move with the outcome of many games difficult to predict. It’s always wise to keep an eye on the latest team news and injury updates too. Often a depleted team can be easier to beat.
If you’re looking at outright markets at the start of season, then you might want to consider that only 16 different teams have won the Serie A title in almost 125 years. Stick to the big guns in this market.
There are a number of factors to mull over before wagering on any Serie A betting markets. If in doubt, side with the home team. 39% of all fixtures in Italy’s top tier last season were won by the home side, with 35% won by the away team and 26% finishing all square.
Watch out for player special markets for bigger games in Serie A. Sometimes you’ll find great anytime goalscorer odds for players in form and card prices for serial hatchetmen.
Serie A has developed into one of the most exciting divisions in Europe in terms of goals scored with just 6% of last season’s fixtures finishing 0-0, so make the goals markets your first port of call in Italy.
What to avoid
This should go without saying – but first and foremost – never chase your losses. Only ever bet what you can afford to lose and don’t try to compensate for losing bets by lumping more money on the next event. That’s a recipe for disaster.
There are some really big-hitters in Serie A, so your football betting strategy should avoid betting against the likes of AC Milan and Inter, who lost just eight games between them in 2021/22.
