Betis Is the Only Primera Division Team Worth Betting

January 3, 2019

Real Betis

Betis v Huesca – 5th January – 19:45 BST

The Spanish Primera Division resumes with what looks like a competitive set of fixtures, so much so that two draws makes one’s punting portfolio for the 18th championship round.

But one is going to kick off one’s Spanish Primera Division wagers with a decent bet on Betis condemning Huesca to its 12th loss of its top-flight campaign when these two teams clash on Saturday. Huesca is eight points away from Spanish Primera Division safety and, having collected just eight points from its first 17 league games, escaping the dreaded drop seems highly unlikely. Eibar is the only side to have lost a Spanish Primera Division match to Huesca, which has failed to earn a single point versus teams in the top six.

Sixth is where you will find Betis on the Spanish Primera Division ladder and the Green and Whites are in good form, both in domestic tournaments and international competitions. Betis has won five and drawn two of its last seven games across a variety of events and not long before embarking on its unbeaten run it got the better of Barcelona in a Camp Nou match featuring seven goals, winning 3-4 on the road.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Betis holds a 10-1-5 lead over Huesca, including progressive counts of 4-0-0, 6-0-1 and 7-0-2. According to Spanish Primera Division expected points, Huesca can count itself somewhat unlucky to be anchored to the foot of the ladder but one thinks there is sufficient data to support backing Betis, particularly given its odds-against prices at 2.21  with 188Bet.

Levante v Girona – 4th January – 18:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Levante and Girona to draw @ 3.50

Apart from Betis, none of the Spanish Primera Division sides excites as a win bet so one is going to recommend punting on the draw when Levante hosts Girona on Friday at 3.50  with Betway and Espanyol faces Leganes, also on the final day of the working week.

Levante and Girona occupy adjacent rungs of the Spanish Primera Division ladder, they are level on 22 points and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, the latter is just marginally superior, a finding which lends itself to betting on them sharing the spoils at the former’s ground. Levante should welcome back two players from suspensions but one of its star performers, Ruben Rochina, is out due to his ban being activated. Girona enjoys an 8-2-6 Spanish Primera Division collateral form advantage over Levante so the White and Reds should be competitive on their travels even though, generally speaking, they have struggled versus teams on the top half of the ladder. Each of the last two games between Levante and Girona have ended all square and there appears to be some value in wagering on yet another draw result.


Espanyol v Leganes – 4th January – 20:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Espanyol and Leganes to draw @ 3.30

Espanyol and Leganes are experiencing contrasting fortunes currently and the Cucumber Growers beat the Budgerigars in both of their Spanish Primera Division clashes last season but one thinks the hosts can stop the rot with a home draw at 3.30  with 188Bet.

According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Espanyol and Leganes are level on 6-4-6 and, while the Cucumber Growers do boast a progressive count lead of 4-2-1, they are 16th on the ladder with a 1-3-5 away record. Espanyol is 5-0-3 in its Spanish Primera Division home matches and the Budgerigars are desperate for a positive result after losing six league games on the bounce.


Levante 6-2-8

Espanyol 6-4-6

Valladolid 8-3-5

Alaves 4-6-6

Huesca 5-1-10

Eibar 6-3-6

Sevilla 5-3-8

Real Madrid 9-1-5

Getafe 5-1-10

Celta 7-4-5
