The Line: Chievo +1200/ Draw +475 / Juventus -450 -- Over/Under: 2.5 See the Latest Odds
The Serie A is back this weekend and all eyes will be on the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi as Cristiano Ronaldo makes his debut for Juventus. The Old Lady will take on Juventus in a match Chievo in what is a very highly anticipated match.
Chievo will hope to ruin the Ronaldo party by causing a major upset in this match. This team has done well in past seasons and they have a decent team for this season also but when compared to Juventus, it is hard to see the quality of Chievo. The home crowd will be an advantage but even that might not be enough since many of the fans will be more interested in seeing Ronaldo play rather than their own team. Stopping CR7 will be the main task for Chievo but it is hard to see that happening.

As far as Juventus are concerned, this is the start of a big season. The club have spent big and the additions of Ronaldo and Bonucci will ensure they can compete for every trophy. The manager has a good system and the team seems to be clicking like a well-oiled machine. The draw has also been kind to Juventus as they have an easy start to the season to give the players some confidence heading forwards. The team will most likely line-up with Ronaldo as the main focal point and it will be interesting to see if the Portuguese superstar can keep scoring like he did at Real Madrid.
I think we can safely predict Juventus to win this match. They are the better side and I don’t see a scenario where they don’t leave this match with all 3 points. We are getting a very poor price to bet on Juventus winning so I would avoid betting on the outright result. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals which should be a winner since Juventus is likely to score many times.
