Most soccer bettors know, Juventus are going through the motions until they are crowned Serie A champions. Next up it is Genoa. Can these Italia Soccer odds underdogs dent the Old Ladie's march?

The Juventus procession to the Serie A continues this weekend with their latest victims Genoa. Okay so maybe I’m being flippant, but the omens aren’t good. Juventus have won 56 times and scored 196 goals against them, which is more than any other side in the top division of Italian Soccer odds division.

 

Juventus
The champions-elect are unbeaten in their last 18 Serie A fixtures (W12 D6), with their last defeat coming against Genoa in the reverse fixture. The leaders have conceded 14 goals so far, five fewer than last season after 27 match-days and only Bayern Munich have kept more clean sheets than Juventus’s 15 across the top-five European leagues this term.

Their home form is imperious, with no loss in 41 league games, winning a staggering 37 matches. This week they took their 2-1 home leg lead to Dortmund in the Champions League and beat them 3-0 in Germany booking their quarter-final place in some style.

Goals are as easy to come by as points for them, with at least one goals in each of their last 44 at Juventus Stadium. Carlos Tevez has been a brilliant addition to the team and has scored 21 goals in Serie A and the Champions League.

 

Genoa
The away team are seventh in the division and eight points behind Europa League qualification, in fact it looks like the season is all but over for them already. That win at home to Juve is one of the highlights of the season, a Luca Antonini stoppage time winner took the three points and that may inspire them to give Juve a game.

They were unbeaten in five games prior to their defeat to Chievo and have been scoring on the road. They have found the net in each of their last 12 league away games, but have scored just one in each of the last six.

This is the angle I’m looking at to find better value Soccer Picks than the straight home win, although Juve should go into every acca this weekend.

After perusing the soccer odds, I note that even though Genoa’s ability to score in every away game hasn’t been tested at Roma or this weekend’s opponents of course, I’m willing to trust Matri or Falque find the net again, if the leaders are a little jaded following their trip to Germany.

I can’t see anything but a home win though, given their great performances and the fact Genoa’s only away wins have been against lower placed teams. The exception is their 1-0 win at Lazio, but they were down to 10 men after just 27 minutes.

Free Soccer Pick: Juventus win and both teams to score 3.75 (11/4)
