Best Spanish LaLiga Matches to Wager On the Weekend (October 29th – 30th)
Cadiz +470 vs Atletico Madrid -154
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 10:15 am ET
Before an Oct. 22 loss to Rayo Vallecano, Cadiz had drawn in 4 straight matches. The home team’s form may be on the down turn.
Not only did Cadiz lose to Rayo, but they lost by a 5-1 score. Atletico has won twice with 3 draws in their last 5. Also, the chalk beat Cadiz 4-1 in the last head-to-head. Backing the favorite makes sense.
Soccer Pick: Atletico Madrid
Sevilla -101 vs Rayo Vallecano +295
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 12:30 pm ET
Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano are in the same form. Both squads have won 2, drawn twice, and lost once in their last 5.
Not only that, but both teams also won their last match. Sevilla beat Copenhagen in a Champions League tilt. Rayo Vallecano bested Cadiz in the aforementioned 5-1 game. Rayo’s win is more impressive. So at the odds, the road squad is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Rayo Vallecano
Valencia +400 vs Barcelona -165
- When: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 3:00 pm ET
Barcelona’s Champions League flub was so shocking that the Wall Street Journal ran a story on the CL disaster. Barcelona hopes they can bounce back on Saturday versus a hard trying Valencia squad.
The home team in this lost their last match. But before the loss, Valencia had drawn in 3-of-4 with a win.
Barca has won their last 2 Primera Division games by a combined 7 goals to 0. Valencia will play hard. Barcelona will still dominate.
Soccer Pick: Barcelona
Real Madrid -1.5 -170 vs Girona +1.5 +132
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 11:15 am ET
Girona shows 3 losses and a couple of draws in their last 5. The road team in this isn’t playing well enough to upset Real.
Girona isn’t even playing well enough to keep this close. Leipzig beat Real in the last, but El Blanco rocked it before the Champions League match. RM covers the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Real Madrid -1.5
Athletic Bilbao +109 vs Villareal +260
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:30 pm ET
Bilbao’s form has fallen big time. AB hasn’t won a match since beating Almeria 4-0 on Sep. 30. Since the win, the home team in this has drawn twice and lost twice.
Villareal has won 3-of-4. The loss in the last 4 happened versus Barcelona. At +260 odds, the road squad is an overlay.
Soccer Pick: Villareal
Real Sociedad +101 vs Real Betis +275
- When: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 4:00 pm ET
For sure, the road squad’s form has turned south. Betis was at the top of the La Liga standings earlier in the season.
Now, Betis is in fifth place and 11 points behind Real. Sociedad is in fourth place, a couple of points ahead of Betis, making this an important match for both.
Sociedad lost their last game. Before the loss, the home squad had won 4 straight. At +101, Sociedad is more than playable.
Soccer Pick: Real Sociedad
