    Let's get to the pitch!

    Friday, November 7- 1 Match

    La Coruna vs Cordoba

    3-Way: 1: Coruna +225 Away X: +210 Draw 2: Cordoba +145 Home

    Spread: Caruna Pk +135 Cordoba Pk -155

    Total 2: Over -115 Under -105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Well, the reason these two are at the bottom of the table is not due to a lack of scoring. They have both simply been unable to stop anyone and now they get to face each other as the onlyFridaymatch. Let's start the weekend with the Over 2.5 at -115 and hope we head toSaturdayin a good mood.

    Saturday, November 8- 5 Matches

    Barcelona vs Almeria

    3-Way: 1: Barcelona -585 Away X: +700 Draw 2: Almeria +1750 Home

    Spread: Barcelona -2 -135 Almeria +2 +115

    Total 3.5: Over -110 Under -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Almeria is not going to score at any point in this match, and I do not expect 4 goals from Barcelona, so that obviously walks me in to the Under 3.5 at -110. We are seeing Barcelona slowed down plenty lately.

    Elche vs Getafe

    3-Way: 1: Elche +325 Away X: +220 Draw 2: Getafe +105 Home

    Spread: Elche +0.5 -125 Getafe -0.5 +105

    Total 2: Over -110 Under -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    This line of +105 on the Getafe 3-Way is the only logical play we can make here. Elche is coming off a nice performance vs Espanyol, but everyone is coming off the Espanyol matches with a result lately. I can't do anything but hope Getafe finds all three points and wins at home at +105.

    Vallecano vs Real Madrid

    3-Way: 1: Vallecano +1800 Away X: +1300 Draw 2: Madrid -1125 Home

    Spread: Vallecano NL Madrid NL

    Total 4: Over-140 Under +120

    Bet on La Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    It is pretty rare to not see a handicap line in any match, no matter the discrepancy in talent or the table, and we do not see one today. It is actually -3 if you look around, and we all know why. Amazingly, I also see that the 1st half handicap is -1.5 on Madrid, and I personally love 1st half plays. Hopefully, it will get listed on the site, as it would go nicely with the 1st half Total of 2.

    Granada vs Celta Vigo

    3-Way: 1: Granada +525 Away X: +300 Draw C. Vigo -170 Home

    Spread: Granada +1 -115 C. Vigo - 1 -110

    Total 2.5: Over +100 Under -120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    So they are giving away the -1 on Vigo at home for some reason. It is a trick, or is it a treat? Happy belated Halloween everyone! I will call it a treat and expect Vigo to follow up a 1 - 0 win over Barcelona to easily be able to handle anything Granada can throw at them. Vigo handicap -1 at -110 is going on the board.

    Eibar vs Malaga

    3-Way: 1: Eibar +575 Away X: +280 Draw 2: Malaga -170 Home

    Spread: Eibar +1 -125 Malaga -1 +105

    Total 2.5: Over +125 Under -145

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Eibar heads from the northern tip to the southern tip of Spain to take on Malaga, and Malaga is definitely playing their best football right now. Winners of 4 straight, they are getting back to the form they had last year when they were in Champions League. Again, I will have to turn to the -1 at +105, avoiding the -170 or so price on them to simply win again. I do think Eibar will score here too, so I will actually take a crack at the Over 2.5 with that lovely +125 attached to it as well.

    Sunday, November 9- 4 Matches

    Featured Match Athletic Bilbao vs Valenica

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Bilbao +400 Valencia -140 Draw +280

    Spread:

    Bilbao +1 -145

    Valencia -1 +125

    Total 2.5: Over -120 Under +100

    Analysis and Prediction:

    These two couldn't get much done against each other last year, with two 1 - 1 draws in both meetings. Since Valencia suffered their first loss, they seem pretty solid up front and have put in 3 goals in each of their matches since. They have certainly benefited from not having a European club competition and have been able to concentrate on their domestic campaign. With 23 goals scored, they are right there with Barcelona as far as scoring goes. Defensively they are not the most sound club in the league, but have done enough to have still only lost 1 match on the season.

    Bilbao has had a strange season. They are somehow still playing in Champions League, although that is not going so well either, but yet they managed a nice result vs Sevilla over the weekend that they desperately needed. Maybe the desperation will motivate them to start turning everything around.

    The line setters aren't giving Bilbao much of a chance in this match with the +400, but they will make you pay -145 if you think they can cover the +1 handicap.

    I think I will pay the $20 and take this Over 2.5, knowing that Valencia is suspect on defense and Bilbao needs to stay in gear to get back in the La Liga race.

    Levante vs Sevilla

    3-Way: 1: Levante +1050 Away X: +475 Draw 2: Sevilla -350 Home

    Spread: Levante +1.5 +110 Sevilla -1.5 -130

    Total 3: Over +105 Under -125

    Bet on La Liga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Sevilla was disappointing last weekend, letting all 3 points go to Bilbao when they were playing so well up to that point. Levante finally secured a win last weekend, but has still given up 24 goals on the campaign, and when they play clubs who can score, things usually get ugly.

    I will expect some ugliness with Sevilla needing to rebound from the loss last weekend and knowing that they should be aggressive and pour it on at home. I will take the over 3 with the +105 on it.

    Villareal vs Espanyol

    3-Way: 1: Villareal +145 Away X: +220 Draw 2: Espanyol +205 Home

    Spread: Villareal Pk -135 Espanyol Pk +115

    Total 2.5 : Over +110 Under -130

    Analysis and Prediction:

    I sit here thinking, why is this over +110? Espanyol can't stop Villareal from scoring 2 goals, and Villareal is not playing shut down football either. I am sorry, but +110 to test the waters thinking we can surely see a 2 - 1 type match here does not seem out of question in the least. Over 2.5 goes on the board for me.

    Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad

    3-Way: 1: Madrid -110 Away X: +245 Draw 2: Sociedad +340 Home

    Spread: Madrid -0.5 -110 Sociedad +0.5 -110

    Total 2.5: Over +125 Under -145

    Analysis and Prediction:

    How nice is it to have Cordoba and Sociedad back to back? I was shocked Cordoba actually scored twice in Madrid last weekend though, but in this case, another questionable total sits here at +125 to see 3 goals. Madrid should be able to score all three of these goal for us. Before we just throw the total out there, what the hell is -110 on the 3-Way? Inviting much? Here is your RSVP! Madrid 3-Way -110 and the Over 2.5 at +125.
