Juventus Remains Team To Beat

Juventus was surprisingly jettisoned from the Champions League, but their domestic play has been stellar. Juve is atop the Serie A table with a five point lead over AS Roma and with a 10-point cushion over third place Napoli.

The Italian league takes a winter break and the next matches will take place on January fifth. That day sees a HUGE match when Juvetnus plays host to AS Roma. Bet365 already has odds posted on that match with Juve at -163 and AS Roma at +450 and a draw line of +275.

Juve probably does not want to take a break, as their lone loss of the season came in mid October and they have won nine straight matches. In their last win Juve had their eight match clean sheet streak end in their 4-1 win over Atatlanta.

AS Roma is still the only club in the league that has yet to lose, but they have five draws while Juve only has one. From the beginning of November until the beginning of December AS Roma played four straight draws and that is when Juve overtook them for the league lead.

Bet365 has futures odds posted for the outright winner and only have five teams with odds. Juve is the big betting favorite at -600 followed by AS Roma (+500), Napoli (+1400), Fiorentina (+6600) and Inter Milan (+10000).
