The Serie A season is winding down to a close, with just 6 rounds left to play before we reach the end. That is still a lot of points up for grabs, so we should perhaps not be so quick to start crowning champions and making statements about who will be going down at the end of the season. That said, there are some things that look very close to being done, but again, we are not quite ready to call it all just yet. Let’s preview one of the upcoming matches for this week so you can make your bets against their Serie A odds.
Juventus Vs Sassuolo Game Preview
There are a couple of teams that looked to be doomed to relegation already, which would mean just one spot left to be filled. The battle for European places still rages on, and while it is not yet mathematically secure, it does look as though Juventus are going to win it all. Picking up another win here will take them one step closer, but this will not be an easy one against a Sassuolo team that still has a shot at a Europa League place. These two will go head to head on Wednesday with 3 very important points up for grabs. Juventus hit the road favored by a single goal, with the goal total set at 3 for this one.
Why bet on Sassuolo
It is a bit of a longshot at this point, but Sassuolo still has an outside shot at landing in the final Europa League spot this season. They are currently sitting in 8th and need to get to 6th to make it into the EL Qualification Round. They are 6 points off the pace, but with 6 games still to play, that is not what anyone would call an insurmountable gap. The problem that they have here is that they need to try and pick up points against the team that is probably going to be champions. That said, they did manage to get a point when they played Juventus on the road earlier this season, drawing 2-2 in that game. At home this season, they are 7-2-6, scoring 35 and surrendering 27, so we might well expect some goals here.
Why bet on Juventus
We have seen some teams adapt well to the new schedule after the lockdown, while others have crumbled a little under the pressure of so many games in a short period of time. Juventus are one of the teams that has excelled, while theirs closest competition, Lazio, have been losing ground. As it stands now, Juventus lead at the top is up to 8 points, which you cannot really see them throwing away at this late stage of the season. A win here would not clinch them the title, but it would make the job for Lazio close to impossible. In their last road game against Sassuolo, Juventus won 3-0, while they are 10-2-4 on the road this season, scoring 26 and surrendering 19.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Juventus have been perfect since returning from the break, and while this is by no means an easy game, I do not see them faltering coming down the stretch. I am taking Juventus to win and the OVER in this one.
