Serie A Betting: Can Juventus Stop the Bleeding?

The good news for Juventus? AC Milan lost 4-2 to Monza, succumbing to their first league defeat in 71 days. The bad news? Everything else.

Max Allegri’s side entered the final match of January in red-hot form, winning seven in a row in all competitions. Juventus had dropped points just twice since the October international break, one of them being a 1-1 draw to Inter, whilst their sole defeat arrived on Sep. 23 in a 4-2 loss to Sassuolo.

Despite having Arkadiusz Milik sent off early on, Juventus came away with a 1-1 draw against Empoli, as soccer betting aficionados have found out in recent weeks, that stalemate in Turin proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Juventus were unable to find a response, falling to a 1-0 defeat at Inter. Argentine center back Lautaro Giannetti broke the deadlock early on for Udinese, and once again, Juve failed to find a way back into the game. Juve fell behind twice only to escape Hellas Verona with a 2-2 draw, and they’ll be looking to bounce back on Sunday at home against Frosinone.

Inter winning the Serie A title is a matter of when, not if, with Simone Inzaghi’s side sitting 11 points above Juve and having a game in hand. For several months, it looked like Juve and Inter would go down to the wire in a two-horse race, but today, Inter is running away with the championship and it is no surprise that our sportsbook is backing them at -8000 to claim the Scudetto.

When it comes to Juventus, objects in the rear are closer than they appear: Max Allegri’s side sit just two points above Milan, nine above Bologna and Atalanta, the latter having a game in hand, and 13 above Roma. They need to turn things around quickly if they are to solidify their grip on the Champions League positions, and they’ll be looking to bounce back with a win against a Frosinone side that has lost three in a row, conceding 11 goals and scoring three in February.

Newly promoted Frosinone sits level on 23 points with Udinese, one point above Empoli, and three above Sassuolo and Hellas Verona, the latter occupying the relegation zone. On paper, this appears to be the calm before the storm for Juve, who will take on Napoli, Lazio, Atalanta, and Genoa over the following month, as well as the first leg of their Coppa Italia semis vs. Lazio.

However, Frosinone has more than enough weapons to cause Juve some problems, with their last meeting in December seeing Jaime Baez draw level after the break only for Vlahovic to win it for Juve in the 81st minute.

One player who is a surefire addition to your soccer player prop bets is Matias Soule.

Player Prop Bets: Is Matias Soule the Real Deal?

Matias Soule doesn’t turn 21 for another two months, but he’s already emerged as a vital cog in attack for Frosinone. Born in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Soule left for Italy in 2020 and made the move to Juventus, making 21 appearances for the first team under Allegri before heading out to Frosinone on loan. Soule has been a revelation for the newly promoted side, with his performances drawing the attention of Saudi side Al-Ittihad. Rather than head to the Middle East and receive a massive paycheck, Soule chose to remain put at the Stadio Benito Stirpe, opening February with a goal and an assist in their 3-2 loss to Milan. With 10 goals and two assists, Soule is the first Frosinone player in the club’s history to reach double figures in a Serie A campaign.

If you’re planning to bet on Serie A soccer this weekend, bet on Soule grabbing a goal contribution in their upcoming match vs. Juve.

With a contract until 2026, Soule will be looking to convince his parent club of why he deserves a contract extension and a regular spot in Juventus’ first team next season. The Argentine has not just been a goal-scoring threat, but a multidimensional playmaker: he leads Serie A for successful dribbles per game (3.2) and shares the top spot for key passes per game (2.5) with Albert Gudmundsson. Whilst our soccer odds may not be in Frosinone’s favor as they look to stop their three-game losing streak, they have an ace up their sleeve in Juve loanee Matias Soule.
