Only Real Madrid has played in more Spanish Primera Division games that have gone over two and a half goals than Valencia and one is tipping that the Bats will reward punters who bet on high-scoring matches when they host Sevilla on Sunday.
Twenty-two of Valencia’s 31 Spanish Primera Division games have gone over two and a half goals, including 10 of its 15 home matches. Each of Valencia’s last four Spanish Primera Division games have gone over two and a half goals and the Bats are on the bottom half of the ladder because their defence is one of the most porous in the competition.
Sevilla is no stranger when it comes to featuring in Spanish Primera Division matches with plenty of goals. Nineteen of Sevilla’s 31 Spanish Primera Division games have gone over two and a half goals, including 11 of its 16 away matches.
Each of the last four meetings of Valencia and Sevilla at the former’s stadium has gone over two and a half goals and, when the Bats visited the White and Reds in Spanish Primera Division action earlier this season, Sevilla won 2-1.
Marathonbet is offering odds of -161 about Valencia and Sevilla combining to go over two and a half goals and one rates that as the best bet on a difficult Spanish Primera Division coupon to unearth genuine punting value.
Kevin-Prince Boateng is unavailable to Las Palmas for its Spanish Primera Division trip to Athletic on Friday so the Yellows are ripe for opposing against the Lions. Athletic is trading at odds of -200 with several bookmakers, including 188Bet and SkyBet, to register a home victory.
Usually one would not go near a short-priced Spanish Primera Division home team that boasts collateral form figures of 8-3-8 versus its opponent but Athletic is very good in front of its own supporters, Las Palmas is very bad on its travels and Boateng is the top league goal scorer for the Yellows. Athletic is 11-3-2 in its 16 Spanish Primera Division home games, Las Palmas is 1-3-11 in its 15 Spanish Primera Division away matches and Boateng, who is suspended this weekend, has netted nine goals for the Yellows.
Atletico Madrid must back up from a midweek UEFA Champions League home game against English Premier League title holder Leicester to fulfil its Spanish Primera Division assignment versus Osasuna but the Mattressers ought to post an easy home victory over the bottom-of-the-ladder Reds.
Two UEFA Champions League matches in the space of seven days means that Atletico Madrid will, ideally, want to take care of Spanish Primera Division business against Osasuna quickly so that Mattressers manager Diego Simeone can think about giving a well earned breather to some of his star players.
Atletico Madrid is light years ahead of Osasuna – according to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, the Mattressers hold a 17-2-0 edge over the Reds and the reverse fixture ended in a 3-0 away triumph for the capital crew – so one is willing to snap up odds of -149 with Coral about a home half-time/full-time double result. It took 36 minutes for Atletico to puncture Osasuna’s defence in their Spanish Primera Division clash five months ago and the Mattressers were 2-0 to the good before the break. Atletico have pulled off the half-time/full-time double result in eight of its 15 Spanish Primera Division home games, while Osasuna has been on the receiving end in eight of its 15 Spanish Primera Division away games during an awful term.
