The second half of the 2021-22 Italian Serie A soccer season is underway and two giants will have to battle through the latest COVID-19 outbreak in a massive game on Thursday as Juventus hosts Napoli. Juventus is fifth in the Serie A table and will be without key players like Arthur and Giorgio Chiellini after positive tests, while Napoli third will be missing stars like Hirving Lozano and Victor Osimhen. Both squads will also be without several players participating in the Africa Cup of Nations, but will have to find a way with three crucial points on the line for teams on the periphery of title contention. You can see what happens when you catch all the action live on Paramount+.
Kickoff is set for 2:45 p.m. ET from Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy. Juventus is the -150 favorite (risk $150 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Juventus vs. Napoli odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is 2.5 goals. Napoli is the +450 underdog and a draw returns +270 odds. Thursday’s match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Italian Serie A picks for Napoli vs. Juventus
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Juventus vs. Napoli picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Juventus vs. Napoli, Green is backing Juventus to win at -145 on the 90-minute money line. Both teams will be shorthanded because of COVID-19, injuries and the Africa Cup of Nations but Napoli’s roster is the more decimated of the two, with owner Aurelio De Laurentiis reportedly upset that the game hasn’t been postponed.
Napoli at one point led Serie A but has since dropped to third in the table and is now seven points behind leaders Inter Milan. Meanwhile, Juventus has overcome a terrible start to give themselves at least a puncher’s chance of winning the Scudetta for the 10th time in 11 years by collecting 13 points from their last five Serie A matches.
“Juventus has been in better form, it is the home team, and it has won nine of its last 10 games against Napoli in Turin,” Green told SportsLine. “It should have just about enough quality to beat a Napoli team missing Kouliably and Osimhen.”
