Juventus will look to build on its lead in Group H of the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League when it visits Zenit St. Petersburg on Wednesday. The Italian side has rolled to two impressive Group H victories thus far and has a strong plus-four goal differential. Zenit picked up a win over Malmo, but lost to Chelsea thus far in the group stage. These sides have met just once before, a 1-0 win for Juventus in the 2008-09 Champions League. You can catch the match live on Paramount+.

Kick-off is set for 3 p.m. ET from Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg, Russia. The latest Juventus vs. Zenit odds list Juventus as the +120 favorite (risk $100 to win $120) on the 90-minute money line. Zenit is going off at +250, while a draw returns +230. The over-under for total goals is 2.5. Wednesday's match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

UEFA Champions League picks for Juventus vs. Zenit

Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Zenit vs. Juventus picks from SportsLine's proprietary European soccer model. Created by two Norwegians -- professional poker player and sports bettor Jonas Gjelstad, and economics and engineering expert Marius Norheim -- the model analyzes worldwide betting data and exploits market inefficiencies, helping its followers cash in. Since coming to SportsLine last year, the algorithm is up over $8,500. 

For Zenit vs. Juventus, the model is projecting that Juventus will win, bringing back a +120 return on the 90-minute money line. Juventus didn't start the club season off well, but has been surging in recent weeks. It is unbeaten in its last five Italian Serie A matchups in addition to its 2-0 start in Champions League play.

A couple key trends work in favor of Juventus in this matchup as well. Dating back to last year, Juventus has now won four straight Champions League group-stage games and hasn't conceded a goal in any of them. Juventus has also been extremely successful against Russian sides, going unbeaten in its last eight tries, with seven wins and a draw during that run. Juventus has outscored those teams 18-3.

Federico Chiesa has scored in his last three Champions League outings for Juventus, and one goal might be enough for Juventus in this one given its defensive prowess thus far.
