Game four of the Italian Serie A season and we stick with the champions who look, on paper, to have been handed a gimme three points when enjoying home advantage over Verona, an opponent who is expected to spend the bulk of the season in and around the bottom half of the table. Here are our top Juventus v Verona betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
The visitors have been written off by bookmakers, pundits and even some supporters to spring a surprise and get anything out of this match but it’s worth keeping in mind this will be the second outing for Juventus this week and the first weekend where they play on the back of Champions League football.
That will force the home manager to rotate his squad, at least a little to ensure there are no tired legs going into this challenge. It’s still very early in the season but the defending champions already can’t be seen to be conceding ground. They’ll want to lay down a marker and stamp out the aspirations of their main rivals as quickly as possible.
A Winning Old Lady
The Old Lady can achieve just that with the kind of win that would show they are ready to do battle on all fronts. If they can beat Verona at home and score a few goals in the process it would set a standard for the season ahead. The betting has Juve at 1/6 (Bet365) to win against the 15/2 with Unibet for a draw and as big as 25/1 the away day. That pushes us into the specials where we try Juventus to win to nil at 8/13 – best price at Bet365.
