Is Serie A World Football’s Most Exciting League This Season?


The majority of the world’s most-watched football leagues that generate the biggest revenue and followings are in Europe. You have England’s Premier League, Italy’s Serie A, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, France’s Ligue 1, and the Netherlands’ Eredivisie.

Many say La Liga has lost much of its relevance on the global stage, especially since Ronaldo and Messi no longer play there. These same people also say that the two most exciting football leagues to watch in 2023 are the Premier League and Serie A.

The question being asked here is, is Serie A world football’s most exciting league this season?

Which is more exciting, the Premier League or Serie A?

The debate about which league is more exciting, the English Premier League or the Italian Serie A  league, has raged for over two decades. Some people you ask will say the Premier League is the world’s most exciting league, and others will argue that it’s Serie A.

One thing that most will agree upon, though, is that these are by far the two best leagues in world football right now.

However, even though England’s Premier League generates more money and is more popular around the world, the Italian Serie A league is regarded by many as being the most exciting of the two leagues.

Who can win the 2022/23 Serie A campaign?

The best way to find out which team is most likely to win this year’s Serie A season outright would be to look at the odds at today’s most trusted Football Betting websites, such as the official DAZN Bet site, to name just one.

We are now over halfway through the season, and Napoli are sitting at the top of the table with 62 points after 23 games played. In second place are Inter with 47 points, and in third place are Roma with 44 points.

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that Napoli will more than likely go on to win the league. However, anything can happen in football, and no bets are ever guaranteed, no matter how certain the odds first seem.

A closer look at the odds

If you were to place a real money wager right now on a team to win the Serie A league outright, you would be looking at the following average odds:

  • Napoli: UK fractional odds: 1/40. European decimal odds: 1.03. American/moneyline odds: -4000. Implied probability rate: 97.60%
  • Inter Milan: UK fractional odds: 25/1. European decimal odds: 26.00. American/moneyline odds: 2500. Implied probability rate: 3.80%
  • AC Milan: UK fractional odds: 70/1. European decimal odds: 71.00. American/moneyline odds: 7000. Implied probability rate: 1.40%%

In other words, a fairly safe bet would be on Napoli to win the league outright. However, placing a $/€/£10.00 (or equivalent currency value) wager on Napoli to win would only see a total return of $/€/£$10.25 (which includes your initial $/€/£10.00 stake returned and only a $/€/£0.25 profit).

To make any kind of profit with odds like these, you would need to put vast amounts of money on, which could be risky. For example, to win just $/€/£25.00 with the same 1/40 (1.03, or -4000) odds for Napoli to win the league, you would need to wager $/€/£1,000.

Final note

When betting for real money, always try to place strategic bets that will more likely return you a decent profit without spending too much. However, that’s much easier said than done, but it is possible, and it helps to understand what the odds are telling you.

Also, never chase your losses, remember to withdraw your winnings occasionally, and try not to think of gambling as a way to make a living.
