Sunday’s evening La Liga kick-off sees third-placed Valencia host fourth-placed Villarreal in what is sure to be a tight contest.
The visitors are attractively priced at 11/4 to give their automatic Champions League qualification quest a boost by claiming a big win at the Mestalla.
A successful £10 bet on El Submarino Amarillo to claim the three points would return £37.50.
In spite of their humorous nickname, which means ‘the yellow submarine’, the visitors have performed well this season and know that a victory would see them leapfrog their hosts in the league.
They are likely to be buoyed by the 5-1 midweek thrashing of Dutch league leaders FC Twente in the Europa League quarter-finals.
Strikers Nilmar and Giuseppe Rossi both netted in that victory and have been in good goalscoring form this season with 11 and 15 league goals respectively.
Both could be popular with La Liga betting fans to net the first goal, with bwin.com offering odds of 6/1 on Brazilian Nilmar, meaning a successful £10 bet would return £70.
Former Manchester United hitman Rossi has been linked with a move to Barcelona or Juventus in the summer, but this week insisted he has his sights set on adding to his tally for Villarreal.
The striker is priced at 7/1 to net the first goal and 2/1 to score at any point – an attractive bet for a player who has recently admitted that he may be in the form of his career.
Meanwhile, Valencia striker Roberto Soldado has netted ten in the league this season, including four in last weekend’s win against former club Getafe.
The Spaniard is priced at 9/2 to notch first, which would return £55 on a successful bwin bet.
Los Che are rated as 19/20 favourites to overcome Villarreal and will be hoping to hold onto third place in La Liga and avoid a two-legged qualifier for the right to dine at Europe’s top table next season.
It is shaping up to be a great game, but those who think it might turn out to be a dull 0-0 draw could see a successful £10 bet return £85 at 15/2 on bwin.com. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
