It’s first versus third over in Italy and as Juventus are already 14 points clear of second placed Roma the winner of the Italian top-flight is pretty much a done deal but that doesn't mean there isn't money to be won.

We approach the final straight over in Italy after 29 games, but it's hardly a tricky debt picking the winner from the league table. Juventus have 78 points with a goal difference of 46 and second placed Roma, even though they do have a game in hand, have just 64 points and a goal difference of 40.

Juventus have won 25 games so far this season, suffered three draws and have just a single defeat blotting their copybook. That's a full six games better off than anybody else and their goal tally of scoring 65 is 11 better then second-place Roma.


Enough with the top two…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?
Hot on the heels of Roma comes Napoli in third place on 58 points. They've won seventeen games, drawn seven and lost four this season scoring 53 goals and conceding 30.

Picking a winner in this one shouldn't be too tricky looking at the last four head-to-head meetings between the two sides there has only been one side that has come out on top and that's been Juventus, however all three victories in the last four meetings came at home and the only time Juventus didn't win in the last four was when they were away to Napoli.

However home comforts make very little difference as in the last four games they have only managed to put three goals past Juventus, but have conceded 10.

Twice Juventus locked out Napoli and have to go all the back to May 2012 to find a game when Napoli came out on top. The store that time was a 2-0 victory to Napoli. A repeat of that score is available this time round at best soccer odds of 21/1.

Now's the time to get the basics out the way way and you should know that Juventus are 5/4 to win this game Napoli are 9/4 and a draw is at 11/5.

Looking at Juventus's recent goal tally gives you a very good idea of how many goals Juventus are likely to score they have averaged one goal per game for the last five encounters but have only conceded once.

Four the last five games have ended 1-0 to Juventus and a repeat of that score is available at 7/1.

The only other game in Juventus’ recent history has been a 1-1 draw with Florentino back in mid-March and that school is available at 5/1.

You should also know that the bookies have the best soccer odds on the score going over 2.5 goals at 10/11 and under at 4/5.

Looking at Napoli, they have only won two of their last five games and failed to find the back of the net in those five games and what's more worrying is the fact that Napoli haven't scored at home in their last two home matches.

Prediction: Juventus win 2-0 available at 12/1 with BetVictor.
