On the back of four wins in their previous five La Liga fixtures, superb Real Betis plays host to struggling Valencia on Wednesday while rock-solid Sevilla faces Mallorca on the road. You can now bet live on La Liga using our sportsbook.
Real Betis vs Valencia
In one of the most entertaining games of the weekend, Betis beat Rayo Vallecano 3-2 on home soil with Alex Moreno, Juanmi and Willian Jose contributing on the scoreboard. Betis is fifth in the La Liga standings with 18 points earned in 10 games.
It’s a busy period for Betis, which is also playing in the European competitions, so they have a game every three days. They play Valencia on Wednesday, travel to Madrid to face Atletico on Sunday and they play Leverkusen on Nov. 4 in Europa League. Just before the international break, they will meet Sevilla at home. It’s very important to rotate the squad and keep a balance between all these games.
They lost just one game at home this season and that was against Spanish giants Real Madrid. That was also the only game they failed to find the back of the net. They are huge favorites to beat Valencia at -115 in the latest soccer odds but the game should be closer than the odds suggest.
It’s true, Valencia is winless in its last six La Liga fixtures but they still have a strong squad so it’s only a matter of time before they start to win games. Let’s not forget they won three of their four opening games . It’s difficult to predict a winner in this one and betting on Betis might be a trap. We’ve seen both teams scoring in four of the last five mutual encounters and we expect the same outcome, so for our first pick of this parlay we are going with over 2½ goals.
Pick: Over 2½ Goals (-105)
Mallorca vs Sevilla: Consistency wins
Despite conceding three goals to Levante last weekend, Sevilla managed not only to win the game but cover the -1½ spread in a 5-3 victory. Surprisingly, the five goals were scored by five different players, which tells us Sevilla possesses great individual skills all over the pitch, something only the big teams have.
They are sitting third in the standings with 20 points, equal with second placed Real Madrid and just one point behind leaders Real Sociedad but they have a game in hand on the leaders. They still have the second-best defense in the top-flight league with just six goals conceded in nine games and they travel to take on Mallorca as huge favorites, priced at -135 on the three-way moneyline to win on the road with the best online betting odds.
Mallorca’s three-game unbeaten start to their La Liga campaign feels like a distant memory. They started dropping points and they enter this game on the back of four defeats in their previous seven games, winning just one in the process, against 19th-place Levante. The positive part is that they still score in almost every game. The only games they failed to do that in their last five fixtures was on the road to leaders Real Sociedad. But they lack consistency and no matter if they are playing in front of their fans, it will be very difficult for them to pull off the upset against such a strong Sevilla side.
If you are betting online, the price for the overs is outstanding. Over two goals is +120 with our sportsbook and you can sprinkle a small stake on that, but for our second pick of the parlay in soccer predictions today, we are taking Sevilla on the moneyline because we expect them to enter this game strong and keep building momentum. They have great attacking firepower, and they can easily score at least two goals on their own.
