Top Spanish LaLiga Games to Wager On the Weekend (Jan. 8th – 9th)

RC Celta de Vigo +340 vs Real Sociedad San Sebastian -121

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 8

Home squad Sociedad has won the last 3 head-to-head matches. All 3 victories were by at least 2 goals.

On Oct. 28, the home team beat Celta 2-0. Celta goes into this in decent form having won 3-of-5. But in their last, the road underdog failed to Atletico Baleares in a Copa del Rey match. That doesn’t bode well for Celta in this. 

Soccer Pick: Real Sociedad San Sebastian  

FC Barcelona -142 vs Granada CF +360

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 8

Both teams have won 2 with a draw in their last 3. Barcelona beat Elche 3-2, drew 1-1 with Sevilla, and then beat Mallorca 0-1 in their last. 

Granada bested Mallorca 4-1 on Dec. 19, beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 on Dec. 22, and then drew with Elche 0-0 on Jan. 2. The home dog also drew with Barca in the last head-to-head. The odds on Granada make them difficult to play against.  

Soccer Pick: Granada  

Valencia CF +1 ½ -131 vs Real Madrid -1 ½ -101

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 8

Real has won 3 with a draw and a loss. The loss happened in RM’s last match, a 1-0 contest versus Getafe. 

Valencia is 4-1 straight up in their last 5. The road dog dropped their last match 1-0 to Espanyol. Real has won the last couple of head-to-head matches. Not only that, but the home team should be ready to roll since this happens on their pitch.

But the odds aren’t attractive either way. The draw is the best play. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Getafe CF +520 vs Sevilla FC -178

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

Getafe is rolling. The huge road dog has won 2 straight, 1-0 against Osasuna on Dec. 19 and a huge 1-0 victory against Real Madrid on Jan. 2. 

But although the road team is playing well, Sevilla has won 4-of-5 with a draw. Also, this happens on Sevilla’s pitch. It’s always tough laying so much in a soccer match. In this case, it’s the only play to make. 

Soccer Pick: Sevilla   

Athletic Bilbao +115 vs Deportivo Alaves +240

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

With a couple of wins, 2 losses, and a draw in their last 5, Bilbao isn’t playing excellent soccer. But the road squad is in much better form than the home team. 

Alaves has lost 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. AB beat Deportivo 1-0 in the last head-to-head. A similar score is probable. 

Soccer Pick: Athletic Bilbao  

Atletico Madrid +150 vs Villareal CF +175

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

Villareal is on fire. The slight home underdog has won 5 straight. More impressively, Villareal has dominated their opponents.

On Dec. 21, the home team blasted Alaves 5-2. Then on Jan. 3, Villareal beat up Levante 5-0. Atletico is playing okay. They’re not playing well enough to warrant a bet versus the hottest team in La Liga. 

Soccer Pick: Villareal
