Palermo vs Juventus 29 Nov 2015: Serie A preview, predictions and odds
29 November 2015/ 1445ET
Defending Serie A champions are back in action on the weekend as they travel to Sicily to face Palermo. This game is important for both teams as Palermo are only two points above the drop zone while Juventus will want to continue their upward trend after their week midweek against Manchester City and last week against AC Milan.
Palermo will know that they are underdogs going into this match but will have a bit of confidence since they beat Chievo in their last home game as well as getting a point on the road in Rome against Lazio. This is not the best side in the world but experienced campaigners like Alberto Gilardino know what it takes to get the job done and they will try to do that against the Juventus this weekend. Honestly speaking, Palermo will be happy with a draw so I don’t expect the men from Sicily to be charging out and playing in a manner with too much attacking presence.
Juventus on the other hand will see this as an opportunity to get a big win and with the quality of players they have at their disposable it will be hard to see Allegri and his men not getting the 3 points. The Old Lady will see this as a must win simply because their next few games might get a little tricky so 3 points here will give them something to have in the bank. Serie A is a really tight contest this season and Juventus will still fancy their chances of winning this season so a win here is a must for them.
Juventus are overwhelming favorites going into this match so simply betting on the outcome has no value. That being said, the handicap at -1 is too low in my opinion as Juventus should have a crushing win. I think that this bet has great value and so that is where my money will be on.
