Both Determined to Bounce Back

A month ago, Betis was among the best four teams in La Liga. Now, after losing three of its last five matches, Los Verdiblancos are out of the top six. As for Almeria, Los Rojiblancos only won one of their last five games, leaving them dangerously close to the relegation zone. Real Betis comes in as the betting online favorite, but keep in mind that Almeria has been considerably better when playing at home.

Let’s check the latest La Liga news, stats, injury reports, and La Liga lines for Almeria vs Betis. We’ve got plenty of La Liga picks for you to consider.

Almeria: Young Blood

Last Monday, Almeria lost 2-0 to Rayo Vallecano despite winning possession with 52%. Not starting El Bilal Toure had a lot to do with that result. The 21-year-old is the team’s top scorer with four goals and has two assists, only one less than Gonzalo Melero, who leads the team in that department.

Besides Toure, there are Luis Suarez and Leo Baptistao. Suarez is playing on loan from Olympique Marseille but has plenty of experience in La Liga after playing for Granada between 2020 and 2022. As for Baptistao, he has scored three goals. Both scored in Almeria’s 3-1 victory over Espanyol at home on Jan. 27.

Los Rojiblancos have been much better when playing at home. All their six victories were at Power Horse Stadium, where they own a 6-1-3 record. On the other hand, they’re 0-3-7 when playing on the road.

That and the fact that it has no major injury concerns make Almeria an interesting online gambling option at +190.

Betis: Some Concerns

Unlike Almeria, Betis’ coaching staff has a couple of concerns. William Carvalho and Luiz Felipe Ramos are out due to suspension. Carvalho already missed the last game, which Betis lost 4-3 to Celta de Vigo.

Prior to that, it lost 2-1 to Barcelona. Both games were at home, where Betis owns a 5-2-3 record. On the other hand, Los Verdiblancos are 4-2-4 when playing on the road. The good news is that their last victory was on the road. They defeated Getafe 1-0 with Borja Iglesias as the scorer.

Speaking of Iglesias, he’s the main reason to consider including the visitors in your soccer picks. He has scored nine goals. Only Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona) and Joselu (Espanyol) have scored more with 14 and 11. Iglesias has a new wingman in Ayoze Perez, who’s on loan from Leicester City. He’s eager to prove his worth in order to return to the English Premier League, considered the best domestic tournament in the world.

Almeria vs Betis Picks and Prediction

I expect quite a show, including a good fight from Almeria, but Betis at +150 is too good a deal not to take. First, Los Verdiblancos simply can’t afford to lose, at least not if they want to remain in the race for a spot in a UEFA competition. Second, they finished with a clean sheet in four of their last seven road games. Finally, they haven’t lost three straight games since November 2021.

The Betis are listed at +150 in our Vegas La Liga lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Betis, you have a chance to win $150. The Almeria are +190, offering a chance to win $190 on a $100 wager. The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Betis a 40.00% chance to win, with Almeria at 34.48%.
