Bologna/Juventus Draw +600
Bologna’s one key to upsetting Juventus could come down to scoring early – perhaps as a result of a long shot or direct free kick from the left – and then protect that early lead by keeping the ball in their own half. Unfortunately for the Greyhounds, they have trouble finishing scoring chances and keeping possession of the ball. On the other hand, Juventus has many ways to create scoring chances – whether through individual skill, direct free kicks, attacking set pieces, using through balls, or simply taking a lot of shots – and, more importantly, finish those chances. Then again, Bologna could rely on dumb luck and hope that Juve scores an own goal, which they have done twice, one of which came in a 1-3 loss to Genoa.
