The Serie A match between Juventus and Roma features as’s best bet for Sunday October 17.

Bet Of The Day October 17 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

We’re heading to the Serie A for today’s best bet as Juventus look to register their fifth win on the trot when they play host to Roma.

After a shaky start to the season in which they struggled with Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, Juventus have surged into top form and come into this encounter on the back of a four-match winning streak in all competitions, while they are also undefeated in their last six – including a draw with fellow heavyweights AC Milan.

Juventus secured back-to-back 3-2 victories over Spezia and Sampdoria before tidying up their defence in consecutive 1-0 triumphs over Chelsea in the Champions League and rivals Torino away.

Juventus also have an outstanding record against Roma – they have only lost once on their own turf dating all the way back to 2010, while they’ve won 11 of their last 12 home meetings.

It doesn’t get much more dominant than that. Juventus have also won five of the last seven to nil, so after keeping clean sheets in their last two outings, they will be confidence of producing another shut-out here.

Jose Mourinho has guided Roma to their best start to season since 2017/18, but both games they’ve lost this term have been away fixtures, so they should be in for another tough battle here against one of the Serie A’s heavyweights.

Roma also conceded six goals across their last two away games in the league.

Juventus are back in form on a four-match winning streak and have dominated Roma at home over the last decade – all signs point to another three points on Sunday.
