Tough Road Test for Los Blancos

Real Madrid remains in the La Liga title race but suffered a low blow midweek that made it look very vulnerable. Even so, it comes in as the La Liga betting favorite to defeat Real Betis, a team sitting in fifth place, winning its last three games. In other words, I present to you the Game of the Week!

Betis: Balanced Squad

After a very rocky start to the year, Betis is getting its groove back. Most recently, defeating Elche 3-2 with Borja Iglesias and Juan Miranda as the scorers, and William Jose, who scored a goal in stoppage time. I hope you followed our online gambling advice.

Real Betis has a strong offensive mindset, scoring three goals in three of its last five games. Los Verdiblancos’ attacking unit is led by Iglesias, who has scored 10 goals. Only three other players in the league have scored more.

Finally, this is a well-balanced squad, winning the same number of games at home and on the road: six. The only difference is that it’s lost one less game at Benito Villamarin than on the road.

For this match, Betis comes in as the underdog in the sportsbook, offering a +375 price. A victory would be huge for this squad since it could boost it up to the third place.

Real Madrid: Low Blow

After crushing Liverpool 5-2 and drawing 1-1 to Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid had the La Liga odds on its side for the first leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals against Barcelona. However, Los Blancos ended up losing 1-0 thanks to an own goal scored by Eder Militao.

Regarding La Liga, Los Blancos are 9-0-3 when playing on the road. Most recently, defeating Osasuna 2-0, with Federico Valverde and Marco Asensio as the scorers. Being a powerhouse, Real Madrid isn’t easily intimidated, finishing with a clean sheet in three of its last five road games.

Regarding the La Liga lines, Real Madrid is offering a -140 price. That’s a great deal considering it simply can’t afford to lose, not even draw, because Barcelona is heavily favored to defeat Valencia at home.

Karim Benzema has scored 11 goals this season. That’s right; he’s one of the three players that have scored more goals than Iglesias. There are also Valverde and Vinicius Junior, who have scored seven goals each. Real Madrid’s depth is uncanny.
