Juventus Now -250 to win 2018-19 Serie A Title After Ronaldo Transfer

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Italy Serie A Odds to Win

With the great Cristiano Ronaldo heading to Italy to ply his trade with Juventus, the defending Serie A champions have moved from -160 prior to the rumors to now -250 with the transfer official.

Juve has won the last seven Serie A titles and with Ronaldo heading to The Old Lady, eight is beginning to look more and more likely and online shop Bovada has them firmly on top.

Ronaldo is coming off three straight Champions League titles with Real Madrid and won his second La Liga crown with the club in 2016-17. While 33 years of age, he was second in La Liga in scoring with 26 goals and was the top scorer in Champions League with 15.

Juve has already been active in the summer transfer market, adding João Cancelo and Mattia Perin to bolster a squad that has lost club legend Gianluigi Buffon as well as Stephan Lichtsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah.

Serie A had the most exciting title race of the “big five” European leagues last season. Juve won by four points over Napoli while Manchester City won the Premier League by 19 points over Manchester United, Barcelona won La Liga by 14 points over Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga by 21 points over Schalke and PSG won Ligue 1 by 13 points over Monaco.

Can anyone compete with Juventus this season and prevent them from winning another scudetto?

The Return of Carlo Ancelotti

Well, the second team on the futures board, Napoli (+550), has made some of the most drastic changes in the offseason. The biggest, of course, is replacing Maurizio Sarri with Carlo Ancelotti on the touchline.

The great Italian manager returns to Serie A for the first time since leaving AC Milan at the end of the 2008-09 season. Since moving abroad, Ancelotti has won the Premier League with Chelsea (2009-10), Ligue 1 with PSG (2012-13) and Bundesliga with Bayern Munich (2016-17). His success is undeniable and he probably has the best chance to do what Sarri couldn’t with a very talented Napoli club.

Napoli is on the verge of losing midfield staple Jorginho but has added the very talented Fabián Ruiz from Real Betis as well as winger Simone Verdi, who is coming off a great season with Bologna, and young goalkeeper Alex Meret from Udinese.

If you believe in Ancelotti and this very talented Napoli side, they are being offered at a pretty decent price of +550.

Inter Milan On The Rise Up the Table

Inter Milan’s dramatic victory over Lazio on the final matchday of the season secured a return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2011-12 season as they locked up fourth place in Serie A. It was a fantastic debut season in Milan for manager Luciano Spalletti and the club hopes for a higher place in the table in the upcoming season and sits at +1100 to win the scudetto.

The additions to the squad have been very interesting with ex-Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan entering the fold as well as highly touted Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez, who comes over from Racing.

The biggest coup of all might be centerback Stefan de Vrij, who joins on a free transfer from Lazio. The Dutch defender was immense for Lazio last year and adding him to a list of centerbacks that already includes Miranda and Milan Skriniar is a scary thought. Inter conceded just 30 goals last campaign, good enough for fourth behind Juve (24), Roma (28) and Napoli (29), so we shouldn’t be surprised to see that number lower at season’s end.
