Let’s check the latest Serie A odds, stats, injury reports, and Serie A lines for Cremonese vs Juventus. We’ve plenty of Serie A betting odds for you to consider.
Cremonese: No Wins This Season
Cremonese is the only team in the league without a single win in the opening 15 rounds. The team was last in the top flight 26 years ago, a long and tough streak without an elite-class victory. Despite this poor record, they are sitting third from bottom in the league table thanks to seven draws in the opening 15 matches.
Massimiliano Alvini’s troops do have issues with the lack of attacking creativity. They have only found the back of the net 11 times so far in the season. Strangely, Cremonese is particularly struggling for goals on home soil, netting two goals in seven games in front of their fans. If you’re betting online, you should start fading them both home and away.
Each of the last three teams without a win after 15 Serie A games ultimately finished last and got relegated. Hence, coach Massimiliano Alvini, who is under immense pressure and might get sacked if he continues on this path, has his work cut out to defy such precedent in the second part of the season.
The hosts, who lost their last competitive match 2-0 to Empoli and were beaten by Udinese in their final friendly of 2022, will be without veteran center-back Vlad Chiriches in midweek, so Matteo Bianchetti could join Jack Hendry at the heart of the hosts’ defense.
Juventus: Rock-Solid at the Back
Juventus’ chances of a possible Serie A title run are likely to hinge on how well they can start in 2023. The Turin giants return to action after the World Cup break in third place in the table but trail league leaders Napoli by ten points.
Max Allegri’s side finished 2022 with six successive Serie A wins to drive themselves up the table to challenge Napoli and Milan from the very beginning of the season. They will be confident of stretching that winning streak onto seven league-action matches ahead of traveling to an underperforming Cremonese side.
As part of their impressive run, Juventus has dipped in and out of prolific goal-scoring form, with big winning margins mixed with narrow victories. In its final three games before the break, the team averaged two goals per match in league action, so we will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Allegri is unlikely to take a risk on French international Adrien Rabiot as he continues to recover from a concussion suffered in the World Cup final. In addition, long-term absentees Leandro Bonucci and Federico Chiesa are still at least a week away from a starting return.

Cremonese vs Juventus Picks and Prediction
The visitors enter this clash as heavy favorites priced at -145 on the three-way money line according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
Cremonese’s poor form speaks for itself, with just two goals scored in their last five league games. They have failed to score at home in their last three Serie A clashes. This should be an easy away win, with Juventus eager to maintain the pressure on the top spot. At the same time, we don’t expect more than three goals, so for better odds, we will combine the Moneyline with the goals market.
