DraftKings Sportsbook has Juventus as the slight favorites, coming in at +130 on the moneyline while Roma sits at +215. This contest is set to kick off at 12:30 p.m. ET from Allianz Stadium, with a livestream available on Paramount+.

Odds, picks & predictions
AS Roma: +210
Moneyline pick: Draw +205
Neither side has allowed a goal yet this season with Roma opening their campaign with a pair of 1-0 wins and Juve grabbing a 3-0 win followed by a scoreless draw. They’re both contenders for the title this season, so both teams will be desperate to get a positive result from this game especially so early on in the season.
Jose Mourinho’s Roma is off to a flying start with two wins to begin the season, as Bryan Cristante and Chris Smalling have each found the back of the net so far. Loanee Georginio Wijnaldum will be missing significant time after suffering a broken leg in training, forcing the Dutchman to sit on the sidelines for his new club as well as through the World Cup in Qatar. Mourinho has plenty of firepower with the likes of Paulo Dybala, Tammy Abraham, and Lorenzeo Pellegrini at his disposal.
Juventus will be relying on attacking play from Angel Di Maria and Dusan Vlahovic, who both scored in the 3-0 win over Sassuolo to start the season. This looks to be a tight game between two extremely talented clubs, so I’m picking a draw as the safe bet here, especially since it comes in at a decent value at +205.
