Real Betis vs Real Sociedad Odds and Spreads

 

Betis Unbeatable at Home! Can They Extend Streak?

Besides playing at home, Real Betis hasn’t lost in their last six games, scoring in all those matches. Most recently, they drew 2-2 against Las Palmas.

Things have been considerably better when playing at home, where Betis has only lost two of 18 games. And even in those two matches, they managed to score. In other words, Real Sociedad will have to play a perfect match to win at Benito Villamarin.

William Jose leads the attacking unit with 10 goals. He’s followed by Ayoze Perez with nine and Isco Alarcon with eight. However, Alarcon suffered a diaphyseal fracture and won’t be able to finish the season.

Sociedad vs Valencia: Betting on a Balanced Clash

Real Sociedad just depends on its own results to finish sixth on the table and won two of its last three games, most recently beating Valencia 1-0 at home.

Mikel Oyarzabal is the team’s top scorer with nine goals, while Takefusa Kubo has scored seven. Real Sociedad’s attacking unit also includes Sheraldo Becker and Brais Mendez. I told you! Expect fireworks.

The good news for Real Sociedad is that even a draw would be enough to remain in sixth place. A result priced at +260 odds in the sportsbook. And guess what? That’s my pick for this crucial match, a draw in which both will score, but the total (two goals) won’t go over. That means my prediction is 1-1.
