An upturn in end-of-season form will be required from the home side in this Juventus vs Lazio match in Italy’s Serie A on Monday.
Juventus has to recover from the huge setback of a defeat in the final of the Coppa Italia by Inter Milan last midweek.
Meanwhile, fifth-placed Lazio has won its last two matches – and will look to take another step toward securing qualification for the next season’s Europa League.
Juventus vs Lazio Odds
Odds as of May 16 at Barstool Sportsbook
Furthermore, Juventus vs Lazio takes place with the home team already assured of fourth place and qualification for the Champions League.
Over/Under and Spread
This could be a tight game and there is a decent offer of +310 for there to be no more than one goal (U1.5).
Conversely, the spread offer for Juventus to win by two goals or more could also be profitable at +380 (Asian Handicap -1.5.)
Just a reminder for all the people who are doubting Maurizio Sarri and his tactics: only Inter (54), Juventus (54), and Milan (49) have secured more points than Lazio (44) in Serie A over the last 25 fixtures. The future is bright with him at the helm. pic.twitter.com/0JEJz9eueZ

Juventus vs Lazio Prediction
It has been a disappointing season for the Turin-based giant which will finish the campaign without winning any form of silverware for the first time since 2011.
However, as it seeks to sign off its home fixtures with a win in Juventus vs Lazio, the club known as The Old Lady can take heart from the fact that it has won in no fewer than 12 of its last 15 meetings with Lazio.
Therefore, at Barstool Sportsbook, Juventus is favored for a win at +135.
Lazio, meanwhile, is priced at +195. The draw, though, is the best straight game line at +245.
The meeting of Juventus vs Lazio kicks off at 2:45 pm ET on Monday.
Paulo Dybala Goalscorer Odds
This will be striker Paulo Dybala’s last game at home for Juventus – although no destination club has been officially confirmed.
Therefore, he will be looking to sign off with a goal in front of the home supporters. And at +215 he looks good value to find the net at any time.
At +600, he is offered at a very attractive price to be the first goalscorer.
Dybala is Juve’s leading scorer this season with 14 goals – nine of them in Serie A.
However, Dusan Vlahovic is the most favored Juventus player to hit the target at +143.
Dybala has confirmed that he is leaving Juventus, with his final game to be played v Lazio

For Lazio, Ciro Immobile is the favorite to get his name among the goals at +133.
Indeed, he is the most favored player from both sides to score in Juventus vs Lazio.
Immobile has claimed an impressive 25 goals so far this season – with 20 of them in league fixtures.
Juventus vs Lazio Statistics
*Statistics from Serie A 2021-22.
Coach Max Allegri is finishing the season under fire at Juventus.
The 4-2 extra-time defeat by Inter Milan in the final of the Coppa Italia was a major blow to the club’s pride.
And it had been preceded by a depressing 2-1 defeat at Genoa which added to the sense of drift at the club this spring – even though it had been undefeated in the previous four games.
Although the fourth place has been secured with two fixtures remaining, Juventus cannot catch third-placed Napoli which is seven points ahead.
Lazio, meanwhile, has mounted a late surge to secure fifth place as it sits two points ahead of rivals Roma, which has played one game more.
A 4-3 win at La Spezia was followed by a 2-0 home win against Sampdoria last time out for Mauricio Sarri’s Lazio side.
Even a draw in Juventus vs Lazio will all but secure fifth place for Sarri’s team because it has a far superior goal difference to sixth-placed Roma.

However, in theory, Lazio can still be overtaken by the three teams beneath it – Roma, Fiorentina and Atalanta. So it will be keen to get a positive result in Turin.
It will be boosted by the fact that it has won three of its last four road trio games – scoring at least three goals in each of those wins.
Juventus vs Lazio Potential Line-Ups & Injuries
Juventus projected line-up: Szczesny; De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Pellegrini; Arthur, Rabiot; Bernardeschi, Dybala, Kean; Vlahovic
Injuries: Chiesa, Kaio Jorge, McKenie
Lazio projected line-up: Strakosha; Lazzari, Patric, Acerbi, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Alberto; Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni
There was a 2-0 win for Juventus when these teams last met in Rome last November.
In the most recent meeting at Juventus’s HQ in March last year, the home team was a 3-1 winner.
Juventus vs Lazio Pick
However, Juventus are stuttering towards the end of the season. And Lazio needs to take something from the game.
So the draw at +245 looks like a good value offer ahead of Juventus vs Lazio on this occasion.
Pick: Draw +245
