Fourth-place Atletico travel to fifth-place Sevilla on Saturday. Are Atletico destined for yet another draw? Real Madrid are set for a big win over Betis, while struggling Leganes welcome Eibar. Let’s check out La Liga’s best bets for Round 12.
Sevilla vs. Atletico Madrid – 11/2/19
Sevilla and Atletico have both picked up 20 points from 11 games this season. Despite winning more games, Sevilla sit one place below Atletico in the table. Atletico have only lost once this season, but only Osasuna have tied more games in La Liga. Diego Simeone’s side have conceded just six goals. While they don’t score many, they are extremely tough to break down. Sevilla are the favorites at 2.30, while an Atletico win is 3.25. However, the draw is very tempting here. I don’t see many goals being scored in this match, so we could be heading for a stalemate.
Pick: The Draw – 3.10
Real Madrid vs. Real Betis – 11/2/19
With just one defeat to their name this season, Real Madrid are 2nd in La Liga. They have scored 21 goals in 10 games so far (at an average of just over 2 goals per game). Real Madrid come into this match on the back of a convincing 5-0 win over Leganes. On the other hand, Real Betis find themselves down in 16th having lost five of their 11 games this term. Betis boast the worst defensive record in the division, having conceded 21 goals. A home win is 1.25, so Real are the clear frontrunners here. But considering the team’s contrasting goal scoring records, we are likely to see plenty of goals in this match.
Pick: Real Madrid to Win and Over 3.5 Goals – 2.25
Leganes vs. Eibar – 11/3/19
Leganes have managed just one win this season and currently sit bottom of the table. They have only scored five goals in 11 games and have conceded 19 so far. Eibar are seven points clear of Leganes in 14th. Three teams below Eibar in the table have conceded more goals this season. Despite being bottom of La Liga, Leganes are the favorites for this match at 2.10. Eibar are priced at 3.40. It’s tough to pick a winner here, so I’m backing both teams to score at 2.10. Both sides have been poor at the back this season, and 2.10 is a great price.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 2.10
