Sevilla’s form seems to be deteriorating as they suffered yet another blow after losing to Atletico Madrid over the weekend. Barcelona bounced back from their embarrassing loss to Deportivo La Coruna with a win over Valencia, however, the damage has been done and they’re now back chasing Madrid for the title. Los Blancos recorded their third consecutive victory with their win over Athletic Club, securing their lead at the top of the table with a game in hand. There are no major clashes in match day 29, which helps La Liga betting fans to bet with more confidence.
Bet on Madrid
Madrid have re-gained their grip on La Liga after a shaky couple of weeks, but fortunately for them, Barcelona’s consistency isn’t the best this season and now enjoy a two point lead and a game in hand. Los Blancos now face Deportivo Alaves, a team that’s sitting in mid-table and a match that most La Liga betting fans would consider a routine win from Zidane’s men. Odds are not even worth considering when betting on Madrid to win, however, betting on goals or handicap betting might be more profitable. For instance, odds for Madrid to win with a goal difference of three or more are priced 4/5. If you back one team to score, you’ll potentially return £18.00 from a £10 bet. Madrid failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their most recent five games and all of matches ended in over 2.5 goals. Trust Ronaldo to get his name on the scoresheet but odds for him to score at any time aren’t that lucrative. Odds for Ronaldo to score first are priced at 43/20 while Benzema’s odds to open the score are set at 13/4.
Bet on Barcelona
Barcelona will travel to Granada to face a struggling squad in their next adventure for all three points. Granada are in serious trouble at the bottom end of the table and will need to acquire some much needed points if they want to play top flight football next season. Barcelona’s faith is in Madrid’s hands, as Los Blancos are in a comfortable position, having a two point cushion and a game in hand over their rivals.
With odds at 1/5, it hardly makes sense betting on Barcelona to win, but instead, you should be looking at other betting option to make a healthier profit. Barcelona play a very offensive game and usually tend to control the game from the early stages, which is why betting on Barcelona to win both halves might be a more profitable option, as odds are priced at 11/9. The Catalan giants have only managed to keep one clean sheet from their last five matches and Granada scored in four of their five most recent matches played at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes. Odds for both teams to score are priced at 69/100.
Bet on Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid are determined to play in the Champions League next season and it looks like urgency is working well for Diego Simeone’s men. Atletico marked their third consecutive wins with their most recent victory over Sevilla, a victory which was essential in their chase for third spot of the table. The Madrid based side will now travel to Malaga in search for their next win, a squad that’s been having some trouble finding their form. Atletico Madrid are the favourites to win the game and have great odds of doing so, as they’re set at 7/10. Atletico are more than capable of hurting Malaga though, and handicap betting on Atletico is a bet worth considering. Odds for Atletico to win with a goal difference of two or more stand at 39/20. Malaga found the net in three of their five most recent home games and a cheeky bet on both teams to score will potentially return £22 from a £10 bet.
