Spanish La Liga: Best Bets – Round 4 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Spanish top-flight action is back following a two-week absence and there’s some serious money to be made in Round 4.
Can Bilbao maintain their unbeaten start? Will Leganes pick up their first points of the season? Can Valencia trouble Barcelona?
Let’s take a closer look at the best bets for Round 4 of the 2019/20 La Liga season.
RDC Mallorca vs. Athletic Bilbao – 9/13/19
Athletic Bilbao have made an impressive start to the season and currently sit second in the table after going unbeaten in their first three games. They have conceded just one goal so far and look to be a very organized side this term. On the other side of the coin, Mallorca have struggled upon their return to La Liga and have registered one victory and two defeats this season. They are likely to put up a fight against Bilbao, but I expect the visitors to come away with all three points on Friday. The bookies are offering odds of 2.2 for a Bilbao victory, but I can see them struggling to break down Mallorca. By adding an over/under market into the equation, the bet becomes far more profitable.
Pick: Athletic Bilbao to Win and Under 2.5 Goals – 4.0
Barcelona vs. Valencia - 9/14/19
By their own high standards, Barcelona have made a poor start to the 2019/20 campaign. With just four points from a possible nine so far, the Catalan giants are eighth in the table, level on four points with Saturday’s opponents Valencia. Barcelona have conceded in each of their three league matches this season and have looked shaky in defense. Valencia have conceded just twice but have also managed to score at a rate of just one goal per game. I expect Barcelona to return to winning ways on Saturday but the visitors won’t make it easy for them. A home victory doesn’t offer appealing odds (1.36), but if you predict that Valencia will grab a goal at the Camp Nou, the bet is enhanced significantly.
Pick: Barcelona to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.59
Leganes vs. Villareal - 9/14/19
Leganes are the only team without a point to their name in La Liga. They have only conceded four goals (less than Barcelona and the same amount as Real Madrid) but have managed to find the back of the net just once. Villareal are also struggling and currently find themselves with two points from a possible nine. Along with Betis, Villareal have the worst defensive record in the division and have conceded eight goals in three matches. While its unlikely to be a goal-fest on Saturday, I see this as the perfect opportunity for Leganes to register their first victory of the campaign.
Pick: Leganes to Win and Under 2.5 Goals – 4.57
