Bettingpro.com's writers offer La Liga betting tips for every round of fixtures in the form of daily best bets columns, while we also have full coverage of every El Clasico showdown between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
La Liga remains one of the most popular leagues in world football and it is no surprise when it is home to two of the most famous clubs – Barcelona and Real Madrid – and one of the most fiercely contest derbies in El Clasico.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have been the dominant forces in Spanish football for quite some time now and that is no shock when you consider the talent the two clubs can call upon – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez just to name a few.

But beyond that there is some outstanding talent plying their trades for the likes of Atletico Madrid and more, so there is no shortage on entertainment all season season.

Atletico briefly ended the dominance of Barca and Real when they surprisingly won the title in 2013/14, but can they or another club pip the ‘Big Two’ to the La Liga title this season or will it be the usual suspects lifting the trophy?

As always Bettingpro.com will have all of the La Liga betting tips, news, odds and live stream information you could need all season long.

LA LIGA LIVE STREAMING & IN-PLAY BETTING (18+. T&CS APPLY)

One of the biggest changes in football betting is the move from the betting shop to online. This has given more choice to punters in terms or odds and markets but it has had another benefit as there has also been a move by the bookmakers to lure in customers by offering all sorts of benefits to having an online account.

Free bets are one such benefit, but the real innovation is that customers of the big betting firms can now watch and bet on live football matches online. There is an incredible array of live streamed matches from across the globe every single week, and customers in the UK now have access to matches in one of the most popular league competitions there is - the Spanish La Liga.

There is no need for a satellite subscription, or any form of on-going payment, to watch online. All that is needed is an account with one of the major bookmakers and then you can watch online, for free, on your desktop, laptop or mobile device.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BET365 LIVE STREAMING: Watch and bet on football live at bet365 > live streaming > soccer (geo-restrictions apply; funded account required or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours to qualify)

LA LIGA OUTRIGHT BETTING TIPS

Outright betting on La Liga remains a great way to make a profit while betting on the top flight of Spanish football, but of course you have to have some patience because these types of bets are not ones that pay out quickly, unless you have placed them during the final days of the season.

La Liga outright markets are straightforward - you are betting on subjects of promotion, relegation, top-four finishes etc, and these markets are available all season long so you can wait to see how a team performs before backing them in one of these markets. So what markets are available? Read on...

La Liga Winner

The La Liga Winner market is exactly what the title says – you are betting on who will win the top-flight of Spanish football. This market goes live very early on – you could bet on the 2018/19 La Liga Winner market before the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign – and the earlier you bet on it, the bigger the price you will get in most instances. However, Real Madrid and Barcelona have dominated Spanish football since the start of the century and that means they will almost certainly be a short-priced in this market. That means this market is probably one to ignore.

Top 4 Finish

The Top 4 Finish market gives you the opportunity to bet on a team finishing in – you guessed it – the top four places in La Liga. It does not matter if the team you back finishes first, second third or fourth, as long as they are in the top four at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Now, you are not going to make much in the way of a profit by backing a team like Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid in this market, but if you can successfully predict the other team that will break into the top four that season you could enjoy a decent return at the end of the campaign. But of course, as the league season pans out these odds are likely to fluctuate and in many cases get shorter, so you really have to get your timing right to get the best possible odds.

Relegation

Those first two markets were looking at the top end of the table, but betting on the other end of the La Liga standings is also a popular form of outright betting. The relegation market is simple – you are betting on a team to go down at the end of the season. It does not matter if that team finishes 18th, 19th or 20th – as long as they head down to the second tier at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Newly-promoted teams tend to be short odds in this market, but the bottom half of the table has tended to be very congested in recent years and that has meant there were a whole host of clubs dragged into a relegation fight. Some teams have lost that battle and have handed punters a tidy return on their outright bets. 

To Finish Bottom

While the Relegation market asks you to pick a team that will go down, the To Finish Bottom market requires you to select a side that will be propping up the rest of the La Liga table at the end of the season. You will see bigger odds in this market than you will in the Relegation one because you do not have three league positions that can potentially hand you a winning bet, but if you are betting on this market you need to do it before a team gets cut adrift at the bottom, otherwise their odds will shorten quickly and dramatically.

Top Goalscorer

The race to be La Liga’s Top Goalscorer is always an interesting one because there is so much attacking talent on show in Spanish football, but more often than not in recent years at has been Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo claiming the Golden Boot. Luis Suarez did bcome the first player in six years to break the Messi-Ronaldo monopoly in 2016, and that did cause a shake-up that resulted in the bookies offering more appealing prices for Messi and Ronaldo in pre-season. But if you are going to back either man you need to do it before the season gets underway, because once the goals start to flow those odds will plummet.

LA LIGA MATCH BETTING TIPS

Betting on La Liga matches has never been easier and there has never been so many markets to choose from for every single game – but which markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit?

Bettingpro.com offers La Liga betting tips for a whole host of matches in Spanish football’s top tier and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…

Winner

Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market is available for every football match you can possibly bet on, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive match – for example, Real Madrid v Barcelona or Espanyol v Athletic Bilbao. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.

Handicap

The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Real Madrid are 3/10 to beat Las Palmas, but that price offers very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back Real to win the match, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Real Madrid -2 to win the match is available at 7/4. So what does the -2 mean? It means Las Palmas will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Real Madrid must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Real Madrid will win by a single goal so you could go Las Palmas +2, which is available at 21/10. That means if Real win the match 1-0 on the field, Las Palmas will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.

Half-Time/Full-Time

Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe Sevilla and Barcelona will be drawing at half-time but fancy Barcelona to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/Barcelona, which is currently available at 4/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Real Madrid to win by 1 goal, Real Madrid to win by 2 goals, Real Madrid to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Real Madrid to beat Las Palmas at 3/10, which is hardly tempting, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Real Madrid to win by 2 goals in this instance would offer a higher, and more appealing, price of 10/3.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Real Madrid to beat Atletico Madrid but want a bigger price than 10/11. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 11/4 on Real to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Atletico to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Real Madrid host Atletico Madrid you may be expecting Los Blancos to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Real Madrid/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 9/5. It does not matter if Real Madrid win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market is available for every match in top club and international competitions, and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.

LA LIGA HISTORY

La Liga has been the top flight of Spanish professional football since its launch in 1929 and it is home to two of the most famous clubs in world football - Barcelona and Real Madrid - and one of the most famous rivalries, El Clasico.

Real Madrid are the most successful club in the history of Spain's top tier, having won the championship on 33 occasions. That impressive haul began back in 1931/32 when they pipped Athletic Bilbao to the crown, and their most recent title success came in 2016/17 when they ended a five-year drought to get their hands on the most coveted prize in the country.

That title victory ended Barcelona's sequence of back-to-back championships, which had taken their haul to 24, but the Catalan giants remain the second most successful team in the history of La Liga with Atletico Madrid next up on 10, although they have won the title just twice in the past 40 years.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have each enjoyed periods of dominance over the years, but it is Real Madrid who boast the record for most consecutive title wins. Los Blancos have achieved five-in-a-row on two occasions, between 1960-65 and 1985-90.

And when it comes to player honours, it is Lionel Messi who has set the standard in terms of scoring goals. The Barcelona star not only boasts the record for most league goals in a season (50), he is also the all-time leading goalscorer in La Liga and will only increase his fantastic benchmark in the coming seasons.
