Almeria will look to put to an end their current winless run as they host Athletic Bilbao at the Juegos Mediterraneos tomorrow (April 4th).
Jose Luis Oltra’s men have not tasted victory in their last five attempts and will look to get back to winning ways following a 1-0 reverse at the hands of Sporting Gijon.
Almeria will have their work cut out, however, as the high-flying Los Leones currently lie 13 places above their hosts in seventh place in La Liga.
A £10 bet on a home win would return £29 at odds of 19/10, while fans anticipating an away win at 27/20 would see returns of £23.50 from the same stake.
While three points for Almeria may seem unlikely, Sporting Gijon putting an end to Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho’s nine-year unbeaten home league record has shown that the old adage that anything can happen in football is certainly true in La Liga.
Athletic’s odds may seem out of kilter with their league position, but Joaquin Caparros’ side have won only once in their last five outings – a 2-0 victory over Sevilla – and have been beaten in three of those matches.
As such, the visitors could be expected to set up defensively and the draw is currently available at 9/4.
Fans looking to cash in on the goalscorer bets available at bwin could be tempted by the in-form Fernando Llorente.
The Spaniard is Los Leones’ leading hitman this term with 15 goals and at evens to score at any time offers a chance for fans to double their money.
However, home fans confident of seeing an Almeria win – despite their position at the foot of the table – can bet on club top scorer Jose Ulloa to break the deadlock at 6/1.
A £10 bet on the Argentinean to score first would return £70. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
