2015-2016 Preview</strong></a><br /> While the race for the title appears to be a foregone conclusion with Juventus expected to pull off a successful title defence campaign and win a fifth straight title, the battle at the bottom of the table is expected to be anything but.  Eight teams are trading in triple-digits on the relegation odds board, marking almost half the league that could potential be up for the chopping block by season end.</p> <table border="0" cellspacing="0"> <colgroup width="126"> </colgroup> <colgroup span="2" width="64"> </colgroup> <tbody> <tr> <td align="center"

Capri FC, the pair trading on the favourite side of EVEN money. At <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=198&amp;book=Betfair" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check out BetFairs offers">Betfair</a>, Frosinone are the runaway favourites at absurd -1000 soccer odds to be demoted. Hardly a ringing endorsement for their upcoming season is it. Similarly, Carpi FC's -333 soccer odds are rather pricey. Those soccer bettors looking to back these two relative unknown entities are best served going to Bet365 or other sportsbooks with more people-friendly prices where this pair is concerned.</p> <p>Others that could be in-line for relegation according to <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/soccer/?leagueId=serie-a" target="_blank" title="Browse Serie A soccer odds with SBR's live page">Serie A soccer odds</a> makers include a vast range of clubs from Bolgona, Empoli and Chievo to the likes of Verona, Atalanta and Sassuolo. Betfair takes it a couple of steps further by adding Palermo and Udinese to their short list of triple-digit favourites to be relegated, which marks exactly half of the field. It’s a good thing only a few teams get relegated by season end, otherwise the turnover in Italy would be absurd from season-to-season.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/soccer-betting/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Soccer handicapping tips and betting advice"><em>Check Out SBR's Soccer Handicapping Forum</em></a></p> <p><strong>Top Picks for Relegation</strong><br /> Frosinone and Capri FC are the likeliest to go down, with favourable soccer odds to be relegated at <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=2794&amp;book=in-article-bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="See what Bet365 has to offer you">Bet365</a>. However, there’s one more spot that needs to be vacated as three teams line up for relegation. For that we recommend either backing Atalanta, who finished 17<sup>th</sup> last season and avoided relegation by the skin of its teeth, at +600 at Betfair. As well, place <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/" target="_blank" title="Soccer picks &amp; previews">soccer picks</a> on Empoli at +250, who finished in 15<sup>th</sup> place last season but figures to struggle this season.</p>
