Top LaLiga Games to Wager On the Weekend (Dec. 18th – 19th)

Villareal +235 vs Real Sociedad +115

  • When: Saturday, Dec. 18

Real Sociedad shows a couple of wins and 3 losses in their last 5. No doubt, Sociedad has an edge because this takes place on their pitch.

But although the home team will be tough to beat, Villareal may have finally turned around their form. The Europa League champions struggled to start the season.

In their past 4, Villareal has won 3 and lost just once. The loss happened in a 1-0 match versus Sevilla. Give the road dog a shot.  

Soccer Pick: Villareal  

Elche +1 ½ -128 vs Barcelona -1 ½ -104

  • When: Saturday, Dec. 18

Everyone agrees this isn’t Barca’s season, but that doesn’t mean Barcelona has fallen to the Elche level. Or does it?

Barcelona has lost 3 with a win and a draw in their last 5. The draw was versus Boca Juniors in a club friendly. Even if we throw that game out, Barca fell 0-3 to Bayern, lost to Betis, and drew 2-2 against Osasuna.

Still, Elche has won just 2-of-5. Neither win impressed. Barcelona isn’t a great soccer club. They have a good chance to win this by at least 2, though. 

Soccer Pick: Barcelona  

Atletico Madrid +175 vs Sevilla +165

  • When: Saturday, Dec. 18

Atletico is getting the benefit of the doubt. But based on recent form, Sevilla is the play. 

Sevilla has won 3 with 2 draws in their last 5. The home team also won the last head-to-head. Atletico has 2 victories and 3 losses in their last 5. Sevilla takes this.  

Soccer Pick: Sevilla  

Betis +255 vs Athletic Bilbao +104

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 19

Betis may not catch Real Madrid, but they can certainly catch Sevilla for second-place. The road team is one of the hottest in the Primera Division, winning 4-of-5.

All 4 wins were against La Liga rivals. Athletic Bilbao shows 3 draws and a couple of losses in their last 5. These two have drawn in the last couple of head-to-head. Betis shows overlay odds to break the draw streak. Backing the road team makes sense.  

Soccer Pick: Betis   

Osasuna +215 vs Getafe +142

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 19

Both teams have drawn in their last couple of matches. Getafe drew against Bilbao and Alaves. Osasuna drew against Levante and Barcelona.

Not only have these two both drawn in their last couple of matches, but these two drew in the last head-to-head. Neither team has much of an edge over the other. Another draw is more than probable. 

Soccer Pick: Draw 

Cadiz +2 ½ -163 vs Real Madrid -2 ½ +122

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 19

Real is running roughshod over their La Liga rivals. Heading into the weekend, Madrid has 42 points compared to Sevilla’s second-place 34 points.

Real has won their last 3 matches by at least 2 goals, including dusting Inter Milano 2-0 in a Champions League match. Cadiz fell by 3 goals to the home team in the last head-to-head. Madrid can provide a repeat effort. 

Soccer Pick: Real Madrid
