After securing a Champions League final place in midweek, Juventus are fancied to wrap up a sixth straight Serie A title triumph in style at Roma on Sunday night.
The second-placed hosts could still mathematically pip Juve to top spot, trailing by seven points with three games to go, but we’re backing the leaders to confirm their superiority here.
An away win at the generous odds of 33/20 is the first of our Roma vs Juventus betting tips.
A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma have had a decent go at challenging Juventus this season but are again set to fall just short, having been runners-up eight times in 15 years since their last title victory back in 2001.
Last week’s 4-1 success at AC Milan was a welcome boost but they have wilted under the pressure of playing in front of their own fans against other top teams of late.
Napoli prevailed 2-1 at Stadio Olimpico at the start of March and then last month Roma drew 1-1 with Atalanta here before losing 3-1 to Lazio in a disappointing derby defeat.
Looking at the Roma vs Juventus odds, we like 5/1 for the visitors to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus enjoyed a relatively smooth passage through to the Champions League final, with most of the hard work done in a 2-0 first-leg triumph in France.
Mario Mandzukic and excellent Brazilian defender Dani Alves put them in control of the return fixture before half-time and the hope is that this well-drilled outfit did not take too much out of themselves in the second period.
Massimiliano Allegri suggested qualifying for the Cardiff decider will not affect their focus this weekend, declaring: “We have a month to work on it, without forgetting that we are in the middle of some very important games.
“I am very happy with what the lads have done but now we are at a crucial moment of the season so we need to refocus because we have won nothing yet.”
Juve looked dangerous on the break as Monaco chased the game and Roma could fall into the same trap, so we’re taking 11/2 for a draw at half-time and then the visitors to claim victory.
Milan 1-4 ROMA – Edin Dzeko (2), Stephan El Shaarawy, Daniele De Rossi (pen)
JUVENTUS 2-1 Monaco – Mario Mandzukic, Dani Alves
Head-to-head: Juventus 1-0 Roma, Juventus 1-0 Roma, Roma 2-1 Juventus, Roma 1-1 Juventus, Juventus 3-2 Roma.
