Prediction

Juventus 1 Bologna 1

Moneyline (ML)

Juventus (-167) sits atop the Serie A table by one point over second-place Lazio. Juventus has not looked like a first-place club or championship contender since returning, playing to scoreless draws against Napoli Wednesday in the Coppa Italia, and against AC Milan June 12. While the two clean sheets were nice, the lack of offense is rather alarming.

Bologna (+475) is a physical bunch and is actually a strong value at this price. Bologna has lost eight straight matches to Juventus across all competitions, but if there was ever a time where Juventus was ripe for the picking, it's here. Bologna is worth a look with a small-unit play, but DRAW ( +300) IS THE BEST BET.

A winning $10 wager on Juventus and Bologna playing to a draw nets a profit of $30.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 2.5 ( +115) is a great play. Juventus has seemed rather disinterested since the restart, and Bologna is a physical side who are shown plenty of cards. Bologna will likely add to Juventus' scoring woes in this defensive slog. What a value the UNDER is here.
