Top LaLiga Games to Wager On the Weekend (Aug 20th – 23rd)

Cadiz +500 vs Betis -181

  • When: Friday, Aug. 20

Both teams show a win and a draw in their last 2. Betis has won the last couple of head-to-head matches, though. Although we hate laying so many dollars, the home team is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Betis  

Mallorca +230 vs Alaves +125

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Mallorca has drawn twice in their last couple while Alaves lost their last match by a 1-4 score. But look who beat Alaves? Real Madrid should win the Primera Division this season. Alaves gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Alaves  

Valencia +185 vs Granada +149

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Granada has drawn in 3 straight. Valencia has won 2 straight and beat Granada 2-1 in March. Also, the road team shows better odds. Valencia is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Valencia  

Villareal +134 vs Espanyol +195

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

On Aug. 11, Chelsea beat Villareal via penalty kicks to take the Super Cup. The road team in this drew 0-0 with Granada on Aug. 16. Espanyol has a shot, but Villareal won the Europa League last season. The road squad should take this.  

Soccer Pick: Villareal  

Barcelona -121 vs Athletic Bilbao +295

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Barca looked great beating Real Sociedad 4-2. But Barcelona, although they’re good, faces a strong team on the road on Saturday. Bilbao drew with Elche in their first La Liga match this season. The odds on AB make them an overlay while it’s easy to see soccer handicappers reading too much into Barca’s victory over Sociedad.  

Soccer Pick: Athletic Bilbao  

Rayo Vallecano +1 ½ (-166) vs Real Sociedad -1 ½ (+125)

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 22

Sociedad gets a pass for the terrible performance against Barcelona. It was the home team’s first match since May. Not only that, but Sociedad may have gone into the contest over confident since Messi no longer plays for Barca. Back Sociedad on the handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Real Sociedad  

Elche +1 ½ (+104) vs Atletico Madrid -1 ½ (-138)

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 22

On Aug. 15, Atletico beat Celta de Vigo 2-1. Elche drew 0-0 with Bilbao in their last. On May 1, in the last head-to-head, AM beat Elche 1-0. If the odds were reversed, we’d back Atletico to cover, but Elche at +1 ½ +104 is an overlay. 

Soccer Pick: Elche  

Real Madrid -169 vs Levante +380

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 22

Levante has drawn in 3 straight. Real dusted Alaves 4-1 in their last. Levante did beat Real in the last head-to-head, but that was way back in January. Real Madrid should have no trouble scoring the victory. 

Soccer Pick: Real Madrid

Sevilla +119 vs Getafe +240

  • When: Monday, Aug. 23

Sevilla looks primed for a La Liga title run. The 3-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Aug. 15 impresses. Getafe lost to Valencia in their last. Sevilla takes this. 

Soccer Pick: Sevilla  

Celta de Vigo +180 vs Osasuna +150

  • When: Monday, Aug. 23

Neither team is in great form. Celta beat Osasuna in the last head-to-head, though. Also, Celta played well in the 1-2 loss to Atletico Madrid. The match happened on Aug. 15 and it was Celta de Vigo’s first since May. At the odds, the road team is worth backing. 

Soccer Pick:  Celta de Vigo
