Italy Serie A Betting Odds & Lines – Bet on 2024 Serie A

Serie A is the leading professional soccer league in Italy and one of Europe’s top three leagues, behind only England’s Premier League and Spain’s La Liga . Dominated by legendary European clubs like Juventus, Inter, and AC Milan, Serie A has long attracted the very best soccer players in the world.

Here, we explain everything you need to know about Italy’s Serie A for the 2024 season and introduce you to the different Italian soccer bets you can place throughout the season at the Stake Sportsbook .

When is the Serie A 2024?

Following the disruption caused by last year’s World Cup, Serie A 2023/24 returns to a standard schedule and format. The first fixtures commenced on Saturday, 19 August 2023, and the season ended on Sunday, 26 May 2024, where the Serie A champions were crowned.

History of Serie A

The Italian Serie A is one of the oldest professional soccer leagues in Europe and was established in 1929, though it has changed over the years since its launch.

Inter Milan have spent an incredible 93 seasons in Serie A and are the only team to have played in Italy’s top flight every year since its inception.

The league was modified in the 2004/05 season to include 20 teams, which shows how many squads compete in the division.

The Old Lady of Italian soccer, Juventus, are Italy’s most successful team, with 36 titles to their name. Inter Milan and their city neighbors AC both have 19 titles and 16 runners-up medals apiece - incredible synergy for such fierce rivals.

When Napoli lifted the Scudetto at the end of the 2023 season, it was their third Serie A triumph and their first since a Diego Maradona-inspired team won the crown in 1989-90.

Which Teams Played in the Serie A 2024?

Twenty professional soccer teams in Italy contest the 2023/24 Serie A. Sampdoria, Cremonese and Spezia were all relegated at the end of the last campaign and replaced by newcomers Frosinone, Genoa, and Cagliari, who all won promotion from Serie B .

All eyes were on Napoli again this season, seeing if they could manage to keep hold of their star man Victor Osimhen.

The full roster of Serie A teams for the 2023/24 season was as follows:

  • Atalanta: Based in Bergamo, Atalanta first competed in Serie A in 1937–38 and finished 5th in the 2022–23 season. While they have played 63 seasons in the top flight, they're still in search of their first title.

  • Bologna: This Bologna side, having first entered Serie A in 1929–30, clinched their 9th position in 2022–23. With 5 Serie A titles, the last one came way back in 1963–64.

  • Cagliari: Recently promoted as Serie B play-off winners, Cagliari is back in Serie A. Their sole Serie A title was won in the 1969–70 season.

  • Empoli: A 14th place finish last season saw Empoli remain in Serie A. First participating in 1986–87, they're yet to claim the top spot.

  • Frosinone: Winners of Serie B, Frosinone is geared up for Serie A action. Their top-flight journey began in 2015–16, with titles still eluding them.

Alongside Serie A, the Coppa Italia runs throughout the season, Italy’s premier knockout cup competition. Inter won their ninth Coppa Italia title in 2023, defeating Fiorentina 2-1 at Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
