Mallorca v Valencia
Home win: 21/10 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 6/5
Betting Tip: Mallorca may be a nice place to go on your holidays but it’s not the favoured destination of many La Liga clubs. The islanders boast an impressive home record and have won two of their three matches whilst hosting so far this season. Valencia won here last year but Mallorca won the previous two and with los Che having half an eye on a midweek Champions League trip to Leverkusen, back the 12/5 draw.
Getafe v Villarreal
Home win: 13/10 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 2/1
Betting Tip: Getafe haven’t got off to the best of starts after narrowly missing out on the drop last campaign. Madrid’s third club have won just once all season albeit that being at home against then leaders Real Betis. Villarreal have also been slow out of the blocks and with a vital Champions League tie against Manchester City to follow, the draw again looks best value at 23/10.
Real Madrid v Real Betis
Home win: 3/25 Draw: 29/4 Away win: 17/1
Betting Tip: After an explosive start to the season, the Betis bubble has burst with a pair of scoreless defeats in their last two games. Things are hardly likely to improve at the fortress Bernabeu where Real win lots and score plenty. There’s not much money in the Real win but the resurgent Kaka could be worth a try at 7/5 to score at any time during the match.
Barcelona v Racing Santander
Home win: 3/50 Draw: 19/2 Away win: 30/1
Betting Tip: Barcelona have played three times at home in La Liga this season, winning all three and scoring 18 goals in the process. There’s only one winner here but at 3/50 for the result you’ll have to look elsewhere for value. If you fancy another routine Barca victory, have a multiple correct score of 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 at 7/4.
Granada v Atletico Madrid
Home win: 13/5 Draw: 12/5 Away win: Evens
Betting Tip: Atletico have yet to register a point or even score a goal away from home this season but the remedy for that is a trip to Granada. Last season’s Segunda Division play-off winners will be in the thick of the relegation battle all season and despite a win and a draw in their last two home matches, Atletico should have enough to claim the win at evens.
Sunday October 16th
Rayo Vallecano v Espanyol
Home win: 23/20 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 23/10
Betting Tip: Rayo haven’t won at home and Espanyol have yet to win away this season and what’s more, neither of them score much either. Under 1.5 goals in the game is 37/20 and the 23/10 draw also looks to be a good bit of business.
Real Zaragoza v Real Sociedad
Home win: 19/20 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 29/10
Betting Tip: Bar getting drummed 6-0 by Real Madrid, Zaragoza have picked up four points from the other six at home and have fought well without claiming maximum points against Betis, Malaga and Villarreal. Sociedad have lost three of their last four with only a win over lowly Granada to show since their remarkable comeback against Barcelona. Zaragoza to win with under 3.5 goals in the game at 3/2 is a steal.
Levante v Malaga
Home win: 2/1 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 13/10
Betting Tip: Levante are this season’s surprise package, deservedly lying in second and remaining unbeaten. Malaga’s new signings have also got their act together after an opening-day defeat and have won four of their last five. The result is a tough one to call so I’m going for over 2.5 goals at 19/20.
Sevilla v Sporting Gijon
Home win: 37/100 Draw: 7/2 Away win: 15/2
Betting Tip: Sevilla have won all three at home this season whilst basement boys Gijon have lost all bar one of their fixtures, including both away games. Alvaro Negredo has been back amongst the goals for Sevilla and he’s evens to score at any time during the game.
Athletic Bilbao v Osasuna
Home win: 39/50 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 18/5
Betting Tip: Osasuna have lost just once this season, an 8-0 reverse at the Camp Nou. Aside from that they’ve been difficult to beat and they should have enough to hold off a Bilbao side who have yet to win at home. Osasuna may not have enough to win but bwin’s double chance has them at evens to get a draw or better.
