Lazio vs Juventus Betting Odds, Predictions & Winning Tips (Serie A 2022/23, April 8)
Juventus and Lazio meet for the third time this season. Both teams need the points here, especially Juventus, who are on a good path to the top four despite their 15-point deduction. Lazio is not only seeking the three points here but also revenge for their cup defeat against the Old Lady back in February.
Lazio vs Juventus (2022/23 Italian Serie A) Key Info
Lazio took advantage of Inter Milan’s slip-up to move into second place in the league. The Eagles grabbed all three points away from Monza, which saw them go four points clear of AC Milan. It is very unlikely that Lazio would challenge for the Serie A title as they sit 16 points behind the impressive Napoli.
Juventus has responded excellently to their point deduction in the league, and now they are just six points away from the top four. A UCL qualification would be a huge achievement for Massimiliano Allegri’s team, who have roared their way back to the top seven.

Lazio vs Juventus Match Preview and Statistics
Lazio vs Juventus Odds
There isn’t much disparity in the betting odds for Lazio vs Juve. Lazio is slightly favored by the Serie A bookies, and that is because they are playing at home. A win for the Eagles is priced at 2.75 (7/4), while Juventus’ odds of claiming all three points are valued at 2.88 (15/8). The draw odds here are smaller compared to the value in other big games, and a tie outcome is worth 2.80 (9/5).
Lazio started the season well, and they looked like title contenders, but right now, they are battling for a place in the Champions League ahead of next season. The Eagles are second in the Italian Serie A with 55 points from 28 league games. Lazio suffered back-to-back defeats in the UEFA Europa League against AZ Alkmaar, which saw them crash out of the round of 16. They have improved since then, with two wins in a row in the Serie A against AS Roma and Monza. Lazio beat Napoli and Roma last month, and they would need another one of those clinical performances against Juventus.
Juventus might end up having a much better season than expected. They had a poor start to the 2022/23 season, and they were mostly outside the top four after the first leg. When Juventus finally clawed back, they were hit with a point deduction for transfer irregularities. Massimiliano Allegri has led his team to six wins in seven games in the Italian Serie A alongside reaching the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League. The Old Lady has already beaten Lazio this season in the Cup, and they would be looking to make it two wins against the Eagles.

Lazio vs Juventus Predictions
Juventus to Win or Draw @ 1.50 (1/2)
Bet on Juventus is still one of the best picks in Italy, and they are a tough team to beat. The Old Lady have played 20 matches in all competitions this year and avoided defeat in 17 of those games. Apart from their good run of form, Juventus has a solid head-to-head record against Lazio, and they have not lost a game against the Eagles in over three years.
Both teams have met twice this season, and Juventus emerged victorious on both occasions, scoring four goals in total and keeping two clean sheets. Lazio has won only two of their last five games, and both wins were against teams weaker than Juventus. The Old Lady are showing great mental strength right now, and they can get a win or draw against SS Lazio.
Total Match Goals – Under 2.50 @ 1.62 (8/13)
It’s no secret Massimiliano Allegri loves to play with a defensive approach, and Juventus doesn’t usually score a lot of goals. Their last three matches have ended with two or fewer goals, and this game against Lazio should have a similar outcome. Lazio isn’t as good on the attack as they were last season, and most of their matches against the big teams are low-scoring games. There have been two goals or fewer in Lazio’s last two games, and there is good value in betting on this game to end with two goals or less.
Juventus Team Goals – 1-3 Goals @ 1.44 (4/9)
In the last 25 meetings between these two teams, Juventus has scored in the range of one to three goals, and this is a very nice betting option in this game. The Turin-based club has also scored in the range of one to three goals in their last four games, and this is one of the safest options with nice odds to bet on in this matchup. Lazio’s defense has improved this season, but Juventus has an attack good enough to score here but not more than three goals for the Old Lady. Backing Juventus to score within the range of one to three goals has good value in football sportsbooks.
