For many of UK based fans of Italian football, Serie A will conjur up memories of its heyday in the 1990's. At the time it was undoubtably the best league in the world and it became hugely popular on British shores when Paul Gascoigne signed for Rome-based Lazio.
The Italian top division sees passions run high as you would expect from a country as mad about football as Italy and Serie A can boast some truly huge names on the global football scale. While the league has had its troubles over the past decade, there is little doubt that Italian football is on the up. Teams like Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli are all regulars on the European stage, both in the Champions League and Europa League while emerging clubs such as Atalanta are also beginning to make their mark, not just in Italy but around Europe.
It looks as though Italian football has now gone past the troubles it has faced, and also undergone somewhat of a revamp in recent years. Gone are the days of defensive football and narrow 1-0 victories, this is a high-scoring football league with regular five and six goal thrillers for fans to enjoy. Here at FREEbets.org.uk we give you the rundown of just what you may want to use your Serie A free bet on.

What are the Most Popular Serie A Betting Markets?
Just like the other big leagues around Europe, you have a wealth of betting markets to choose from when you are looking to place a bet on the Serie A action. The main game day in Italy is Sunday, which helps the league stand out as this is often a quiet day for football. Those looking to place a Serie A accumulator can place a bet on the games that take place throughout Sunday, so you are able to bet, watch and then hopefully win all in one day, rather than spreading your bet out. Those who prefer singles on games they watch live have many chances to do this, with games spread across Saturday and Sunday while we also have the odd game on Friday and Monday evenings, so there is plenty of action to follow.
For those new to the league, here are a handful of markets you can use when placing your Serie A bets.
Long gone are the days of low scoring Italian games, this is a league full of goals. The both teams to score bet is repidly becoming one of the most popular betting options, and a great way to bet in Italy. Those looking for the big win can place a BTTS acca on the games taking place over the weekend, but this can also be used for placing single bets you are watching live. Stats for this type of bet are available online, showing how many games each team has scored or conceded in, so those who like to dive into stats will love researching for this type of bet. If you are looking for an alternative to just simply choosing who will win the game in Italy, a BTTS acca is one option for you.
First/Last/Anytime Goal Scorer
Keeping with the theme of goals in a game, the goal scorer markets are worth checking out in Italy. These are perfect for those who want to place a single bet on a game they are watching live, you can either back someone to score first, last or simply at anytime in the game. Those looking for an interest past the first goal can turn to the anytime goal scorer market for that. This gives you something to watch for the entire 90 minutes, unless your player scores a goal of course, but then you will be celebrating your winning bet, so it doesn't matter too much! Whichever you choose, these markets are exciting to watch and you can follow your favourite players in them, again giving you an alternative to simply backing who will win.
