Juventus Has Slight Edge to Win on Sunday

Published on October 17th, 2015 9:44 pm EST
The struggling side from Juventus will travel on Sunday to face the third place side from Inter Milan in Italian Serie A action.

As mentioned, Juventus has struggled mightily out of the gate, compiling a record of just 2-2-3 over their first seven games of the season. As of this moment, Juventus sits in 12th place in the table, far below their projected pace.

Inter Milan, on the other hand, is currently sitting in third place with a record of 5-1-1. With a victory on Sunday, Inter Milan could potentially vault themselves into the lead in the league, as they are currently two points behind the first place team, Fiorentina.

Inter Milan has had a very hard time finding the net so far this season, as they have scored just 8 goals over their first 7 games of the season. Their defense has been stingy, however, as they have allowed just 6 goals so far.

Juventus, on the other hand, has also had some issues rippling the twine, as they have beat opposing goaltenders just 9 times so far this season while allowing 8.

In short, don't be surprised if there is a low scoring game on Sunday.


Here are the current odds for Sunday's game:

Inter Milan, 2.75
Draw, 3.20
Juventus, 2.60

As you can see, there is virtually no edge in picking either Inter Milan or Juventus to win.


The 2.5 goal over/under line speaks to how goals will be at a premium on Sunday:

Under 2.5 Goals, 1.65
Over 2.5 Goals, 2.15

Both of these teams will likely be content to play a defensive contest and hope to capitalize on a rare mistake from their opponents. In short, don't expect too much on the excitement side of the ledger on Sunday.


Who do you think will win this contest?
