Juventus runaway favourites to win title
Juventus are the runaway favourites to win the Serie A title, tipped at whopping -8000 futures betting odds at Bet365. To all intents and purposes, clinching the Scudetto is a mere formality with Juventus holding an eight-point edge over Roma, the only title threat left in Serie A.

With just six games left on the season, Juventus will be going about rubber-stamping their claim to the title and given their efficient and impressive season it would take a minor miracle to derail them from their course.

Juventus are sat pretty atop the Serie A table with a 27-3-2 record and 84 points. Home form remains unblemished on the season at 16-0-0 while road form sits at a solid 11-3-2. Juventus are flush off a 2-0 victory over Livorno in Turin, a win that saw them bounce back from a rare 2-0 defeat to Napoli the week prior.

Overall, form is 4-1-1 in both their last five games across all competitions and league commitments. On the road they are 4-2-1 in their last seven league games with the defeat to Napoli being their most recent output on the road.

In spite of their recent disappointment on the road, i Bianconeri travel to Udinese as the hot favourites to win outright at -163 soccer odds at Bet365. What is a mark of unwavering confidence about their quality and ability to return to winning form on the road in sports betting markets.

Soccer Betting Verdict: To all intents and purposes, Udinese have very little to play for in this match. Serie A survival is all but assured despite their position in the table while at the same time a top ten finish is without reach. They are 14 points clear of the drop zone and seven points adrift of a top ten finish. With very little vested in this match, it’s hard to see them muster up much of an effort to try and beat Juventus. By contrast, the visitors have a lot riding on this match and the remaining matches on the season. There is a premium on the win and, as such, they appear to be the value soccer pick at -163 to win outright.
