Why Ajax are a good bet at +195?

Ajax gets Juventus at home in the first leg of the Champions League Quarterfinals. The team from Amsterdam is no joke, having won their last 3. They’re tied with rival PSV Eindhoven atop the Dutch Eredivisie with 71 points.

Ajax is a solid squad that dominated Real Madrid 4-1 in the second leg of a two-game aggregate to advance. If Juventus isn’t on their toes, they could pull off the upset.

Why Juventus are a good bet +120?

Juventus had to play lights out to send Atletico Madrid home in the Round of 16. That’s exactly what Ronaldo and his mates did. Down 0-2 in goal differential, Ronaldo scored 3 to help Juventus to a 3-2, two-match, aggregate victory over the La Liga squad.

Juventus isn’t just about Ronaldo, though. In that match, the top squad in Italian Serie A held Atletico to 0 goals. It was a fantastic performance by Juventus. If they play like that on Wednesday, they should leave Amsterdam with at least a goal win.

Juventus at Atletico Madrid Final Analysis

Juventus is certainly deserving of being the favorites, but the fact is that Ajax has played just as well as Juventus in their last 5. Not only that, but Ajax also takes on the more high-profile squad at home.

The Dutch Eredivisie doesn’t get the press that Italian Serie A does, but from top to bottom it might be a stronger league. It’s hard to beat Ajax when they’re at home. They have a real shot of pulling off the upset. Ajax to win is worth a play.
