Barcelona has had a decent run of form since replacing failing manager Ronald Koeman with Xavi. They have won twice in LaLiga and drew with Benfica in the Champions League. Following an impressive league win away at Villarreal, their next test is against fifth placed Real Betis. This is a fixture that will excite fans and is likely to produce lots of action based on recent meetings. The past six times these two sides clashed in the league, there has been an astonishing 36 goals scored - an average of six goals in each match.
Real Betis has enjoyed great success so far this season with seven wins and 22 goals scored in 14 league games. With expected goals of 1.64 per game, the away side know how to create goal-scoring opportunities. Only Real Madrid and Barcelona have a better xG. Defensively, there is room for improvement, though. Betis have only kept three clean sheets and have conceded 17 times this season. In what should be a great spectacle, we are predicting a thrilling encounter with plenty of goals.
Barcelona vs Real Betis: BTTS & 2.5 Match Goals
This game should be a close affair. Getafe, who currently sit 19th in the league, host Athletic Bilbao who are comfortable in tenth. The away side is in no real danger of relegation but lack the cutting edge to challenge for the European spots. One positive which Getafe will take into this game is their home record. Seven of their 10 points this season have come at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
The visitors have an interesting away habit of drawing this season. They have been unable to take all three points from fixtures they should have, but at the same time have managed to frustrate teams at the top. In Athletic Bilbao’s seven away games this season, six have resulted in draws including the last five. We expect another tight game here where the home side will be happy with a draw as they look to improve their chances of LaLiga soccer next season.

Out of form Levante play Osasuna at the Estadi Ciutat de València with only a victory enough to satisfy the home team. They are up against an away side who are winless in their last five games and have scored only once.
Osasuna has endured a horrid run of fixtures against each of the current top four sides but managed to take a point from the Bernabau against Real Madrid. We expect a different game plan going into this match against bottom-placed Levante who have conceded in 12 games out of 14 this season. Both teams have struggled to create and score chances with low expected goals data and a combined tally of 26 goals out of 28 games.
Being the only winless team in the division, Levante will be desperate for all three points. However, we predict the away side to come out all guns blazing after a difficult run of fixtures.
Levante vs Osasuna: BTTS - No
In a league dominated by the superpowers of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Atletico Madrid managed to break the mould for the second time in eight years and claim the title. Diego Simeone’s side came out on top in a thrilling title race, pipping their city rivals on the final day of the season.
Pichichi winner (top scorer)
In what turned out to be his final season at Barcelona, the iconic Argentinian forward proved as prolific as ever, bagging 30 goals to finish seven ahead of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Villarreal’s Gerard Moreno. It was the eighth time Messi had won the award, and the fifth season in a row.
Player of the year
Atlético Madrid’s success over the last decade has been built on defensive solidity, and in the Slovenian they have a world-class goalkeeper between the sticks. He played all 38 LaLiga games, kept 18 clean sheets (including two against Lionel Messi’s Barcelona) and conceded just 25 times in total. After over seven years at the club, he’s cemented his position as a true Atleti legend.
One of the most popular LaLiga betting lines is on the winner of the title. Since the turn of the century this has been won by Barcelona or Real Madrid in all but five seasons.
However, the LaLiga betting odds on the title winners this season show much more than a two-horse race. Real Madrid has not been all that convincing recently and Barcelona has also endured some major setbacks, including losing talisman Lionel Messi this summer on a free transfer amid financial troubles.
Defending LaLiga champion Atlético Madrid has strengthened in the transfer window and has an extremely strong defense. Sevilla has also caught the eye with some notable victories in recent times.
Most LaLiga betting sites still carry short odds for Real Madrid and Barcelona for the title. But this is set to be a season with an enthralling race for the crown that will captivate soccer fans around the world.
It would take a very brave follower of LaLiga soccer to wager against Karim Benzema in this market. The French forward is a strong favorite to top the goalscoring charts in Spain for the first time, having scored 23 last season to finish second behind the now-departed Lionel Messi.
However, there are some interesting LaLiga betting odds for some other strikers. Memphis Depay, signed from Lyon, will be hoping to transfer his scoring record from France to Spain after he netted 20 times in Ligue 1 last season.
Another man who could beat Benzema’s total is Luis Suárez at Atlético Madrid. The Uruguayan veteran has won it before, when he topped the charts in 2015/16 while playing for Barcelona. Suárez has been joined at Atlético this season by Antoine Griezmann and the Frenchman will expect his fair share of goals too.
Check out the LaLiga odds for a few outside options who could be in the running, including Gerard Moreno of Villarreal (who equalled Benzema last year), Celta Vigo’s Iago Aspas (who topped the assist charts) and rising Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior.
Finishing in the top four is a serious target for elite Spanish teams. This is a passport to the lucrative Champions League – won several times since the turn of the century by both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Both those sides are, despite the fact they endured difficult summers, at very short prices on LaLiga betting sites to finish in the top four. As is current champion Atlético Madrid, who has finished in the top four for eight successive seasons.
LaLiga betting odds suggest, however, that the chase for the all-important fourth place is going to be very exciting. The leading contenders are Real Sociedad, who has not finished in the top four since 2013, and Sevilla, who has achieved the feat only three times in eleven seasons. Villarreal, who has made it only once in nine years, also has a chance while Athletic Bilbao, Real Betis and Valencia are outside contenders for a shot at next season’s Champions League.
One of the most fascinating LaLiga betting lines this season concerns relegation. It is possible to see more than half of the teams in the division being under threat of dropping out of LaLiga before the bottom three is decided. The LaLiga odds for relegation are shortest for Elche, the surprise winners of the promotion play-offs in 2020. The likes of Granada, Cadiz and Alavés all look certain to spend much of the campaign looking over their shoulders, too.
It is also not beyond the realms of possibility that Valencia, Champions League finalists twice early in the 21st century, could go down, with some sportsbooks having them at relatively short odds.
Athletic Bilbao, Celta Vigo and Real Betis are other established top-flight sides that could face the drop if things don’t go too well for them this campaign. It’s worth monitoring form and injury news if you’re going to place a bet on which LaLiga clubs will be relegated.
Aka match result odds, the moneyline is the most straightforward bet available if we are looking to wager on a soccer match – which team do we think is going to win? We decide and place our bet accordingly. Important to note in soccer, unlike many other sports, the moneyline can also include the third option of betting on the tie (draw).
In a handicap bet, the sportsbook gives one side a notional head start. If one team starts 1.5 goals ahead, that means the other has to win by two or more for a bet on them to pay out. Handicaps are usually expressed to half a goal to remove the possibility of a tie/draw.
In an over/under bet, the sportsbook predicts a total for a particular statistic in a match. It is most often total number of goals scored in a game, but it could be total number of corners, yellow cards, tackles, or assists. We decide whether we think the total will be more (over) or less (under) than the given number and bet accordingly.
If you have an opinion on the results of several matches rather than just one, you can combine those predicted outcomes in a parlay. If all the results go your way, the odds are multiplied and you could be looking at a significant payout. You can use our bet calculator to work out your potential parlay returns.
No hidden meaning, this bet is exactly as it sounds. If we want to predict the exact scoreline of a match, we are able to wager on that outcome on soccer betting websites. This is not an easy bet to get right, but that means if we do, our return should be substantial.
When we believe a player will score during a match, we can bet on that outcome. The betting odds for them being the scorer of the first goal of the game will be longer. If we think they will score at any time, our chances increase but the odds shorten.
Both Teams to Score
Both Teams to Score, also known as BTTS, is an extremely popular bet among fans of soccer betting. This is a simple yes or no wager – do we think both sides in a particular match will score a goal or not? It is a particular favorite of bettors who like to combine several games in a BTTS accumulator.
Draw No Bet
This bet removes the option of the tie (draw). We bet on one side to win and if they duly triumph, we will pick up a payout. If they lose, we lose, too. But if the result of the match is a draw we will get our stake back.
A Double Chance bet enables you to cover two out of the three outcomes of a soccer match. For instance, if we stake our money on “Home team and draw”, we will win the bet unless the away team wins the game.
To win with a Scorecast bet, we need to correctly predict both the first goalscorer and the final score of a match. The soccer odds for scorecasts will always look very attractive – but that’s because there are two outcomes, which makes this a difficult bet to win.
Shots on Target
We can bet on one player having more or fewer shots on target in a match than a number set by the sportsbook. Alternatively, we can bet on the total shots on target of one or both teams. Take care to check out the definition of a shot on target on the soccer betting sites you use – this can sometimes get complicated.
This bet allows us to wager on one player, one team or both teams having more or fewer shots at goal (whether the shot is on target or not) than a number set by the sportsbook.
If we believe a particular player is going to score more than one goal in a match, this is the market we want. We will be able to find soccer odds about that player scoring two, three or even more goals during the game.
This is similar to a goalscorer bet, in that we wager on a player to assist – i.e. directly set up – a goal any time in the match. Many soccer betting websites also allow us to bet on a player to assist more or fewer than a certain number of goals over a season.
Soccer fans love the buzz generated by rumors of possible player transfers between clubs. Many soccer betting apps now offer the chance to put money on the likelihood of Player X joining Club Y before the end of a particular date, usually the closure of a transfer window.
This is an over/under bet with a certain number of points awarded for each booking and sending-off. The sportsbook then sets the total it thinks will be racked up in a particular game. If we think plenty of yellow/red cards will be awarded, we would bet on the over, and vice versa if we think the game will have a lower number than the given total. Booking points for a yellow or red can differ between sportsbooks, so it's always smart to check before betting.
Tackling is a particular skill in football. Some players are very good at dispossessing the opposition and we can bet on them carrying out more or fewer tackles in a match than a total set by the sportsbook. We can also bet on a team’s total tackles. It’s always best to check the definition of a tackle on the soccer betting websites you use – this can differ between sportsbooks and stat sites.
There is a wide variety of bets that can be placed relating to corner kicks. These include betting over or under on the total number of corners in a match, or on one team being awarded more than their opponents, or there being more in the first half than the second.
A parlay is a bet on several different matches or outcomes. Usually, all the results have to be right for you to get a return.
Many Soccer betting sites offer parlay insurance. This means if one of your teams or players lets you down, you still get all or part of your stake back.
Cash Out allows you to close your bet and get some winnings before a match is over. If you have backed one side to win but fear their opponents will equalize, you may want to cash out.
However, the amount you get back will not be as much as your payout would be at full-time.
Money back insurance
With a money-back offer, you have the insurance that if your bet loses in a particular way, you will receive your stake back – usually in the form of a free bet. One example is when you back a team to win on the moneyline and the match is a draw. It’s worth shopping around for these offers.
Free bet clubs
The idea is a simple one; if you are a member of the club and you wager a certain amount with them during the week, you receive a free bet at the weekend. Soccer betting sites encourage loyalty with offers like this.
With bet builders you can create your own bet from any number of markets, which means if your bet doesn’t exist, you can get it priced up. For instance, if you think one team will win on the moneyline, a particular player will score and there will be a certain number of bookings or corners, a sportsbook will let you build that bet – then give you odds for it.
Sportsbooks will often offer an enhanced price on a particular outcome to offer their customers extra value, but also to attract extra bets. The new boosted price could be about the next player to score, the final result of a match, or any other event.
2 goal early payout
Some sportsbooks will pay out on a bet as a win on the moneyline if the team in question goes two goals ahead. This means that if you have wagered on that team and they go two goals up, and their opponents come back to equalize or even win the match, you still win your bet.
