Keep the Faith with Betis in Round 2 of La Liga

It is far too early to abandon Betis after one bad Spanish Primera Division result and one advocates sticking with the Green and Whites for their Round Two game at Alaves.

Betis was one of the shock losers of the Spanish Primera Division’s first round, conceding three unanswered goals to Levante in front of a stunned Benito Villamarin crowd. But football is a funny old game sometimes and, based on the match statistics, there is no way that Betis should have lost 0-3 to a Levante team that had 27 per cent possession and far fewer corner kicks and shots than the Green and Whites. Betis posted a series of great pre-season results and the Green and Whites were one of the success stories of the Spanish Primera Division last term. Punters are getting the right price to take another chance on Betis, with the bookmaking fraternity struggling to split the Green and Whites and Alaves for the first of Saturday’s three Spanish Primera Division games. Betis spanked Alaves 2-0 at home and 3-1 away in last season’s Spanish Primera Division meetings of the sides and the Babazorros are coming off their own 0-3 defeat in which they barely laid a glove on Barcelona.

Everyone in the football betting business – bookmakers and punters – has a tendency to overreact to results in the first few weeks of competitions and one feels that Betis is worth backing at  +188   with BetVictor for its Spanish Primera Division match at Alaves on the body of its work this year.

Both Sevilla and Villarreal kicked off their Spanish Primera Division campaigns in high-scoring games and their Round Two clash at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday is one in which punters should consider backing over two and a half goals at -143   with Bet365.

Sevilla, which will be backing up from its UEFA Europa League assignment against Sigma Olomouc, had too much firepower for Vallecano in its Spanish Primera Division curtain raiser but the White and Reds did leave the door open for their promoted host and their style of play is likely to result in lots of high-scoring encounters.

Villarreal deserved to get something out of its 1-2 Spanish Primera Division home loss to Sociedad so they will be keen to bounce back versus a Sevilla side that may have a few miles in its legs three days after lining up in Czechia.

Last term, both Spanish Primera Division matches between Sevilla and Villarreal were crackers – the White and Reds won 3-2 on the road before the teams drew 2-2 in Seville.

Athletic and Huesca will wrap up the second round of Spanish Primera Division action on Monday and one fancies that the Lions will retain their 100 per cent record at  -133   with Black Type at the expense of the side playing its first season in Spain’s top flight.

Athletic was good value for its 2-1 Spanish Primera Division home victory over Leganes, whereas Huesca defeated Eibar 2-1 on its travels despite not forcing a single corner kick. It was Eibar’s latest poor outcome following a pre-season program that included a 1-2 loss to Huesca so, as one highlighted in one’s Spanish Primera Division preview last weekend, it was impossible to back the Gunners with any degree of confidence – the result was not a huge shock.
