La Liga Predictions & Betting Tips


The 2020/21 La Liga season is set to be a fascinating one, with Real Madrid looking to tighten their grip on the domestic league in the wake of a woeful summer for arch-rivals Barcelona. Of course, with los Blancos still struggling to get the best out of big-money signings such as Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, this could be a season in which the El Clasico duopoly is broken

Atletico Madrid are always considered to be among the contenders in La Liga, but this could be a real season to take advantage of their bigger, richer and more decorated rivals’ issues with young stars having progressed and manager Diego Simeone a step closer to getting a new group of players singing from the same hymn sheet that saw the club win the league in the 2013/2014 campaign.

Beyond los Colchoneros, there are other teams hoping to cause a shock and enter the fray for the La Liga title this season. Sevilla have won plenty of silverware of late, including last term’s Europa League trophy and the likes of Villarreal, Real Sociedad and another Madrid team in Getafe have been in and around the top positions in the table over the last few seasons.

Whether it’s the fight for the title, which could be more open than ever, a race for European qualification or the relegation dogfight occuring at the bottom of the table, you can rely on Squawka Bet to have you covered all the way with our La Liga odds.

When do you release your La Liga Predictions?

Our La Liga experts look to collate the data, check the team news and form and make their selections around 48 hours before kick-off. This time frame may change however, due to fixture congestion for example.

We have you covered for every kind of bet imaginable in La Liga, from outright tips at the start of the season all the way through to the best accumulators and multiples and our match bet for each and every match come each individual match week.

Today’s La Liga betting tips

Looking for Squawka Bet’s very best La Liga predictions and betting tips on the fixtures taking place today? We look to get our tips live before the day of the game, so you should find our best bets available on this page ahead of the day of the match.

And that’s not all. This is the place to check back to for the latest La Liga betting offers, odds, information and even different tips – if you’re looking for multiples and accumulators, we have you covered alongside our match singles. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could combine some of our match tips for a big odds accumulator across different markets.

La Liga Inplay betting tips

Inplay betting has exploded in the last few years. Although it’s been a possibility to place mid-match bets for some time now, the introduction of mobile betting apps has given the punter so many opportunities when it comes to In Play betting, with odds changing in play to reflect the action happening out on the field.

And with the markets that are available during the game now, plus the ability to cash-out on your bet to relieve the anxiety of waiting for the full-time whistle, the options for La Liga inplay betting are more varied than ever.

Full Time Results

Still the most popular bet amongst punters, the full-time result bet is exactly what it says on the tin. You’re betting on which team will come out on top at full-time, or the draw of course. This is different from a correct score bet, when you’re betting on the actual scoreline at full-time rather than the outcome. These are often combined for a La Liga accumulator bet.

Both Teams to Score

Much like the full-time result market, the both teams to score market remains popular among multiple backers as you can get great value on four or five selections from the same market. For your La Liga BTTS bet, you want to check the high-scoring and high-conceding teams in the league. In the 2019/2019 campaign, Barcelona were highest-scoring team with 86 goals whilst Real Betis, despite staying up, shipped the second-highest amount of goals with 60 conceded.

To Score a Header

The options for betting on goalscorers are not just limited to which players will score or which player will open the scoring – but you can bet on the method that teams and players will find the net, including with a header. Headed goals are slightly less proficient in La Liga than they are in the Premier League for example, but there are still plenty of dangerous attackers in the air – David López of Espanyol and Charles of Eibar ranked joint-first for headed goals last term.

Player Total Shots

You’ll find plenty of player stats bets right here on Squawka Bet – after all, if we’re known for anything around here it’s our love of stats. And if we can take advantage on markets such as Player Total shots, then all the better. Players to look out for in this market? Unsurprisingly, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi led the way with 159 total shots in 33 games last season – 71 of which were on target.

Player Total Tackles

And another market that’s popular with our stats-loving experts when they select their La Liga tips is the player total tackles market. Here, you’re backing certain players to win a certain amount of tackles during the game and one player to particularly check upon here is Casemiro of Real Madrid, who led the way in tackles last season with 96 in 35 matches – although Atletico Madrid’s Saúl Ñíguez was just one behind in the same amount of games.

Bookings

And there are now a raft of markets available when it comes to betting on fouls, yellow cards and red cards in La Liga fixtures. You can bet on how many cards will be shown in a game, or on a specific player to receive a booking and although Sergio Ramos is known for his poor disciplinary record at Real Madrid, it was actually his Barcelona counterpart Gerard Pique who picked up the joint-highest amount of yellow cards last season alongside Getafe’s Damian Suarez.

Player Offsides

You can even bet on a player to be caught offside a certain amount of times in a match now, which is worth backing if your chosen player is playing against opponents who play a high line and look for the offside trap. Osasuna’s exciting young forward Chimy Avila was the most regularly offside player in the league last term, being caught beyond the last line of defence on an average of 1.2 times per match.

Corners Taken

Much like the card bets, corners markets have expanded in terms of variety and indeed popularity in the last few seasons and now you can bet on how many corners each team will win during the game, how many total corners will be awarded and which team will win more. Prior to the lockdown last season, there was an average of 8.42 corners per game in the Spanish top tier.

VAR Specials

VAR has been in operation in La Liga for a year now and is just as controversial in Spain as it is in the Premier League. Many bookmakers will often offer up some VAR specials on the campaign or on specific matches, it’s worth checking out what markets are available with different brands.

This Week’s La Liga Predictions

Most La Liga matches take place over the course of a weekend, with the television broadcasting companies staggering the games over Saturday and Sunday with games very rarely being played at the same time. This is great for punters, as you can keep up on every game where we have posted our La Liga predictions if you’ve placed a multiple bet, or you can keep checking back before each match to find out what our tips are for each fixture.

We’ll also have tips ready for any mid-week matches if you’re looking for the weekly tips in advance.

Priceboosts

Not sure what to back ahead of the match? Or already settled on your bet but looking for a better price before kick-off? Many bookmakers now often pre-match price boosts and specials before specific games and there are also occasionally enhanced multiples available ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.

La Liga Accumulator

What’s an accumulator bet I hear you ask? Well, an accumulator is when you combine selections from different matches to create a multiple bet at longer odds. These can all be bets from the same markets (Over 2.5 goals and Win-Draw-Win are particularly popular) or you can select from different markets on the same bet.

We usually have tips from several, varied markets to be used on a weekend’s football, so you may want to combine these for your La Liga accumulator bet. Don’t forget that it’s always worth checking which bookmakers are offering the best La Liga odds as this is even more relevant when looking for value by combining odds from several different bets.

Best Bookmakers for La Liga.

There are so many different things to consider when choosing your favourite bookmaker to place your Spanish top tier bets with. For example – which bookmaker offers the best value, do they have an easy-to-use mobile app and indeed are there any La Liga free bets available upon sign-up?

Every bookmaker worth their salt will offer odds on every La Liga game throughout their season, so you shouldn’t have a problem in finding the right sportsbook, with the right mix of price boosts, free bets and their layout.

Even more impressive is that some bookmakers offer the chance to watch and bet on matches inplay with La Liga live streaming services. This gives punters the chance to watch the action unfold and place their bets accordingly during the game and includes matches as illustrious as el Clasico itself – Barcelona vs Real Madrid.
