Juventus has climbed all the way to fourth in the 2021-22 Italian Serie A table, but with four teams within six points of poaching its Champions League spot, every match will be key for Il Biaconeri down the stretch. On Saturday, Juventus will visit Empoli, which is currently 13th in the Italian Serie A standings despite not winning a league match since Dec. 12. Both teams have been stuck in neutral, with Juventus drawing three matches in a row and Empoli drawing two of three and five of nine. You can see what happens next when you stream the match live on Paramount+.
Kickoff from Carlo Castellani Stadium in Empoli, Italy, is set for noon ET. Juventus is the -155 favorite (risk $155 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Juventus vs. Empoli odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with Empoli as the +430 underdog.

Italian Serie A picks for Empoli vs. Juventus
Before tuning into Saturday's match, you need to see the Juventus vs. Empoli picks from European soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Empoli vs. Juventus, Eimer is taking Juventus to win on the 90-minute money line for a -155 payout. Despite not living up to its expectations in recent years, Juventus almost always has a talent advantage as 36-time Serie A champions, three-time Europa League winners and two-time Champions League winners.
That will be true against Empoli on Saturday and Juventus will also have more motivation given the tenuousness of its hold on fourth in the Serie A table. Meanwhile, Empoli is nine points above the relegation zone and 12 points back from a European qualifying position. It has seemed content with its mid-table status, drawing five of its last nine.
Expect massive January transfer Dusan Vlahovic to be the difference-maker if Empoli attempts to pack it in and play for a draw. Vlahovic scored 17 goals in 21 matches for Fiorentina before his transfer. He's only scored once in Serie A since joining Juventus, but he's coming off a brilliant goal against Villareal in the Champions League that should inspire confidence moving forward.
