Italy basketball Lega A Odds Comparison

12

There are seventeen teams competing in the Lega Basket Serie A this season, with clubs from all over Italy hoping to be crowned champions come the end of the campaign.

Umana Reyer Venezia are the reigning champions although they made a slow start to the 2019-20 season and lost three of their opening five matches.

Segafredo Virtus Bologna could be the team to beat this term based on early season form, with five straight wins getting them off to a flying start.

The seventeen teams will play each other in a round robin format, with 32 rounds of fixtures being played before the leading eight sides go through to the knockout stage of the competition.

The playoffs is when the Lega Basket Serie A competition starts to hot up, with the LBA playoffs quarter-finals and semi-finals tending to be best of five formats, while the finals series is best of seven.

During the 2018-19 season, Umana Reyer Venezia narrowly landed the title when beating Banco di Sardegna Sassari in the final, while the champions had beaten second seeds Vanoli Cremona in the semi-finals by a narrow 3-2 scoreline.

Milano Favourites to Claim 2019-20 Title

Despite losing at the semi-final stage of the competition last season, AX Armani Exchange Milano are the strong outright favourites to win this season’s title, with this proud club already boasting 28 Italian Championships and they remain the team to beat.

However, Milano were beaten 3-0 at the semi-final stage of the competition last term, losing to Banco di Sardegna Sassari, with the latter trading at 18/1 to win the Italian title this season.

Virtus Bologna are regarded as the second favourites to win this season’s Serie A title, with this team having failed to make the playoffs last season and they lost (15) as many as they won last term.

Venezia are a 22/1 chance to retain their Italian crown and the other teams who are given an outside chance include Brindisi, Trento and Vanoli Cremona.
