Scudetto Odds on the Rossoneri rapidly receding

After a £160 million pound overhaul of their squad, the odds on seven time European champions, AC Milan winning next season’s Scudetto have been slashed.

At the culmination of last season, the Rossoneri were a massive 16/1 to end Juventus’ reign of domination in Italy. However, their lavish summer of spending means that their price has been shortened to just 6/1.

With the help of their new Chinese ownership, Milan have acquired a wealth of talent from all over Europe; Franck Kessié, Ricardo Rodriguez, André Silva, Hakan Calhanoglu, Andrea Conti and Lucas Biglia are just some of the players that make up their list of new signings. 

Nonetheless, their biggest coup is undoubtedly capturing highly regarded defender, Leonardo Bonucci from Italian champions Juventus.

Selling one of their most sought after defenders to Milan, suggests that Juventus resonate with the bookmakers, who despite shortening the price of Milan, continue to rank them as outsiders for the title.

The Rossoneri are currently third favourites for the Serie A glory, with Juventus odds on to win an unprecedented seventh consecutive Scudetto and Napoli 5/1 outsiders for their first title since the Maradona era.

Alan Alger of Betway spoke to SBC about Milan’s chances this season: “They have shortened up from 16/1 at the start of June to their current price (6/1). I would say most of these signings come under the promising category rather than the proven one in terms of Championship winners or challengers.

“They’ve finished on average over 30 points behind Juventus the last 3 seasons so have enormous ground to make up on them and also have to participate in the Europa League.”

The Italian football season begins on 20 August, AC Milan travel to Crotone on the opening weekend.
