    Soccer Betting: With four days of action across the Spanish pitch to produce the ninth round of La Liga campaign, this weekend's big match comes at Balaidos between Celta De Vigo and Real Madrid.

    We have a three-way tie atop the La Liga table as we enter the round, and while some may have expected the appearance of Barcelona and Real Madrid among those leading the way, Celta De Vigo has come out as the surprise of the campaign through the first eight rounds. The action kicks offon Fridaywith the match at Vallecas, as Vallecano and Espanyol lock horns with Vallecano looking to shake a three-match slide.

    Our featured match is among the fourSaturdayaffairs, which will carry over to the fourSundaymatches and then lead us to the final match of the roundon Monday.

    We are simply offering picks and predictions among the four European previews this week, so we hope our readers will understand the limited analysis in this round. Let's get to the predictions.

    Friday October 23- 1 Match

    Rayo Vallecano vs Espanyol

    3-Way: 1: Rayo +115 Home ; X: +255 Draw ; 2: Espanyol +235 Away

    Spread: Rayo -0.5 +115 ; Espanyol +0.5 -135

    Total 2.5: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    We offer the Over 2.5 to get the round started, simply because Vallecano has been miserable defensively this year, and Espanyol should be able to create enough opportunities to take advantage of that weakness.

    Saturday October 24- 4 Matches

    Featured Match Celta De Vigo vs Real Madrid

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Vigo +300

    Madrid -115

    Draw +295


    Vigo +0.5 -105

    Madrid -0.5 -115

    Total 3:

    Bet on la Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    We do not know how many outlets predicted that Celta De Vigo would be sitting between Barcelona and Real Madrid as we approach the quarter mark of the campaign, but they certainly have held their own.

    Not too often do we see two clubs facing off against each other this far into the campaign without a loss, but that is what we are dealing with in this case.

    Real Madrid found themselves involved in a scoreless draw this week in Champions League against Paris Saint Germain, as the two sit atop group A in their European campaign with seven points through the first three of six group stage affairs played thus far.

    As one might expect, Madrid has taken five of the last six outings between the clubs, which includes their 2013 Copa Del Rey affair.

    Oh, by the way, Vigo already took out Barcelona here at Balaidos, so we are certainly offering the +0.5 handicap on the home side to come away with a results against mighty Madrid in the featured match of the weekend.

    Malaga vs Dep La Coruna

    3-Way: 1: Malaga +125 Home ; X: +230 Draw ; 2: Deportvo +245 Away

    Spread: Malaga -0.5 +125 ; Deportivo +0.5 -145

    Total 2: Over -140 ; Under +120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    That Deportivo handicap is just out of range to offer a play at -145, so we will instead suggest you look at the Deportivo Pk Draw no Bet offer that we see at +140.

    Malaga has had a nightmare of a campaign so far, and we just don't see it improving too soon.

    Sevilla vs Getafe

    3-Way: 1: Sevilla -215 Home ; X: +350 Draw ; 2: Getafe +635 Away

    Spread: Sevilla -1 -130 ; Getafe +1 +110

    Total 2.5: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Bet on la Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Getafe has been playing extremely well lately, so why the line setters have completely disrespected them against Sevilla is a bit hard to understand.

    We would suggest the Getafe +1 at +110 to anyone out there who is looking for some value out of this match.

    Granada vs Betis

    3-Way: 1: Granada +135 Home ; X: +225 Draw ; 2: Betis +225 Away

    Spread: Granada Pk -140 ; Betis Pk +120

    Total 2: Over -140 ; Under +120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Move this total to the Over 2 and 2.5 handicap to get much closer to even money on the offer. We certainly see the two goals that would at least get half of that action back, and we expect that third goal to come that cashes the ticket outright.

    Sunday October 25- 4 Matches

    Atletico Madrid vs Valencia

    3-Way: 1: Atletico -160 Home ; X: +275 Draw ; 2: Valencia +525 Away

    Spread: Atletico -1 +115 ; Valencia +1 -135

    Total 2: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Bet on la Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Atletico put up four goals in Champions League this week, and we just didn't think we would see that kind of outburst from Diego Simeone's club after seeing so many 2 - 0 results.

    Slowing down Valencia shouldn't be all that difficult, since we have only seen them score seven goals this campaign, three of which came in one outing against Malaga last weekend.

    We suggest the Valencia +1 handicap at -135, despite the juice not being all that friendly.

    Barcelona vs Eibar

    3-Way: 1: Barca -750 Home ; X: +900 Draw ; 2: Eibar +1550 Away

    Spread: Barca -2.5 -115 ; Eibar +2.5 -105

    Total 3.5: Over -130 ; Under +110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Barcelona will obviously have to score all four goals if we were to suggest a play on this total to go Over the number, and we just don't see that happening.

    The Under 3.5 at +110 is the offer we suggest.

    Las Palmas vs Villarreal

    3-Way: 1: Palmas +255 Home ; X: +225 Draw ; 2: Villarreal +120 Away

    Spread: Palmas +0.5 -140; Villarreal -0.5 +120

    Total 2: Over -145 ; Under +125

    Bet on la Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    If the line setters want to offer a +120 line on Villa just because they are away from home, then we will oblige them with a play on that away side expecting Villa to come out of Gran Canaria with three points.

    Levante vs Real Sociedad

    3-Way: 1: Levante +165 Home ; X: +210 Draw ; 2: Sociedad +195 Away

    Spread: Levante Pk -120 ; Sociedad Pk +100

    Total 2: Over -115 ; Under -105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Why this total is set at 2 and being offered at -115 is a mystery.

    We certainly expect those two goals to come, at the very worst, so make a play on this Over 2 at -115, and enjoy it.

    Monday October 26- 1 Match

    Atheltic Bilbao vs Gijon

    3-Way: 1: Bilbao -185 Home ; X: +300 Draw ; 2: Gijon +600 Away

    Spread: Bilbao -1 -105 ; Gijon +1 -115

    Total 2.5: Over +100; Under -120

    Bet on la Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    How is this for our final prediction of the round?

    Bilbao 2 - Gijon 2.

    Play the Gijon +1 at -115, and the Over 2.5 at +100 if you are not one who fancies plays on draws. Although we do expect that the final match of the round will, indeed, produce a high-scoring draw.
