The Serie A season is only two-weeks old and is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting seasons in a long time. While Serie A did lose the star power of Cristiano Ronaldo, there are many other high-profile players and teams to keep an eye on this coming season.
The first two weeks of action already saw Juventus lose to Empoli in a game that might haunt the Italian Old Lady down the stretch. Last season’s champions Inter Milan are off again to a flying start going 2 for 2 in their first two matches. While Lazio, Roma, Napoli, and AC Milan also got off to 2-0 starts.
The Italian league is one of the toughest and most exciting leagues in Europe and the playing field has been leveled a bit more since Juventus dominated the league until Inter Milan claimed the title last season. Here are 5 teams that have the best chances to win the 2021/22 Serie A title according to DraftKings.
Despite the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juve still has one of the best sides in Italy, although someone is going to have to pick up the scoring slack that Ronaldo left behind. While favorites it might take Juventus a bit to get adjusted, they already dropped three points that could come back to bite them.
Inter Milan +225
Last year's champions, Inter Milan, need to deal with the fact that their big gun Romelu Lukaku has left the club and all eyes will be on Lautaro Martínez. Nonetheless Inter still has a very balanced squad that will give Juventus a run for their money as the Nerazzurri look to repeat.
Atalanta, Serie A champions? A lot needs to go right for the club in order to keep the likes of AC Milan, Inter, Roma, and Napoli at bay. The La Dea has a very interesting squad but winning the Serie A seems like a stretch.
Napoli also have a very competitive team and will look to star striker Hirving Lozano to lead them this season. For Napoli a Champions League qualification at the end of the season will feel like a title.
AC Milan +1000
Down the list and what could be a steal is AC Milan. Milan finished second last year and has quietly put together a competitive and deep roster. While Milan might get blindsided by the Champions League if they play to their strengths and focus on winning the league, they have the talent to win it.
