La Liga Betting

There is a fierce debate among betting fans about which league is more robust. Some argue that the English Premier League does not cede supremacy to anyone. Others clamor for the Italian national team. However, the fact remains, no matter how long this debate lasts. The most significant number of European and World Championships victories belong to Spain. And La Liga is the highest national soccer league in this country. Its other name is Primera. 

Like any other in the world, the Spanish championship has its own peculiarities. And it is essential to take them into account in sports betting. In this article, we will tell you about the peculiarities of the Spanish La Liga and provide tips for those who want to place bets on the events of this championship.

Permanent features of Spanish La Liga 

If you decide to bet on this championship, consider the following features. In Spanish La Liga, there is a clear division of the participating teams into strong and weak, and several constant trends can be distinguished: 

  • Teams at the bottom of the standings often need more scoring opportunities. 
  • Teams that are higher in the table are constantly looking to dominate. Both teams rarely score goals when a strong and a weak group meet. Strong teams try not to concede goals. 
  • The Spanish La Liga has quite a pronounced difference between the classes. Therefore, the underdogs here very rarely rise to the top of the standings.

There are often exceptions to the above rules in practice when a weak team takes a sharp lead. This can happen for various reasons. The most common factors are injuries to players on a solid team, lack of motivation, being in emotions, etc. It is essential to consider all these factors when predicting and placing a bet. Considering all these factors when predicting and placing a wager is necessary. 

Sports betting experts have been following the performance of the Spanish championship for a long time, during which they managed to catch some patterns:

  • If Barcelona and Real Madrid play, you can expect many warnings from the referee. 
  • Messi scores a goal in almost every match as the most popular and productive player. This event happens so often that the odds on it in bookmakers are extremely low. However, if you try hard enough, you may find higher odds for this event. 
  • Spanish La Liga is the world’s only championship with the highest number of video replays. This is not surprising – because you can expect many controversial situations in this championship. Therefore, consider this option if you can bet on the number of video replays.

What are the peculiarities of betting on the Spanish championship? 

There are a total of 20 teams in the championship. Among them, the strongest are Real Madrid (with a total of 32 wins), Barcelona (23 wins in total) and Atletico Madrid (10 wins). At the end of the championship, the participants get the first four places to get into the Champions League, the following two teams get into the Europa League, and all the rest are relegated to the lower division. 

When placing bets on La Liga, you should keep in mind the following features:

  • Spanish La Liga matches are presented in almost every bookmaker’s office. This is explained by the fact that this championship is very popular among bettors. Some bookmakers provide these events with extensive rosters, with more than 300-400 marquees. 
  • Many novice bettors prefer to place bets on matches in which Real Madrid and Barcelona participate. However, the winnings in such markets are very rare. Bookmakers, in turn, pay close attention to these matches and carefully work out the odds. 
  • If you have a closer look at La Liga matches, where there is no Barcelona or Real Madrid, we recommend you look for meetings with middle and outsiders. And it is better to spend a little time and try to find underrated odds.

Betting on the victory of the teams 

Betting on the victory of the teams 

A few years ago, many betting experts claimed that the Spanish La Liga is a meeting place of only two teams: Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, in reality, this is not the case at all. So, in 2003, Team Atletico won the championship from both clubs and became champions. However, it lost this title and returned to the rivalry with Barcelona and Real Madrid. 

It should not be argued that La Liga has turned into a meeting place exclusively between the two teams. There is always reason to expect that there will be quite a solid third team shortly, for example, again in the face of the same Atletico. 

We can only be sure that in the next few years, three teams will actively fight for the championship: Barcelona, Atletico and Real Madrid.

Betting on the scorer 

Since 2010, the scorer title has been awarded to only two players: Lionel Messi and Ronaldo (they received this title 3 times each). The championship goes to Luis Suarez in the current season, who will probably move the two scorers from their place. 

These three will be playing for the title between them in the next few years. Gareth Bale may yet join them. 

The Atletico team also has its scorers. However, this team scores a few goals and can not compete with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
