Prop Up Diaz, Real Madrid vs Rayo Vallecano

Forget about Jude Bellingham. The Englishman isn’t expected to return from injury until March. Even so, Real Madrid comes in as the betting online favorites -160 to defeat Rayo Vallecano, a team that’s closer to the La Liga relegation zone than the top 10. Brahim Diaz has a lot to do with that as well. Time to make some picks!

Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid Over/Under Pick: Under 2½ Goals (Ev)

This season, regardless of the result, Real Madrid has scored in every single road game. Most recently, they defeated RB Leipzig 1-0 in the first leg of the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. That streak will continue Sunday at Vallecas, no doubt about it.

I didn’t recommend the over because I don’t expect Rayo Vallecano to score. The White and Reds failed to do so in three of their last five games at home and those matches were against worse teams than Real Madrid.


Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid Handicap Pick: Real Madrid -1 (+105)

Real Madrid is the better team, no doubt about it, but Los Blancos have several players out due to injury, including Jude Bellingham and Antonio Rudiger. That’s why I don’t expect a blowout. Nevertheless, I do expect Los Blancos to fulfill their role as soccer betting favorites. I like 2-0, more than enough for me to recommend you take the handicap, which is offering a better place than the -160 moneyline.


Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid Player Props Pick: Brahim Diaz Anytime Goalscorer (+275)

Are you kidding me!? Brahim Diaz is offering a +275 price as anytime goalscorer in soccer player props. We’re talking about Jude Bellingham’s substitute. As if that weren’t enough, Diaz has scored eight goals in all competitions, including the winner against RB Leipzig on Tuesday.

I’m telling you, Diaz is highly motivated and he’s extremely skillful, which makes this one of the best player props bets for Feb. 18.
