Top LaLiga Games to Watch this Week (Feb. 26th – March 1st)
Friday, Feb. 26th Match
- Athletic Bilbao +143 / Levante +197
Home squad Levante is in decent enough form to pull off the upset. Levante beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 in their last match. If the venues were switched and Bilbao played at home, they’d be the pick. But because Levante steps onto their pitch, they’re the play.
Soccer Free Pick: Levante
Saturday, Feb. 27th Matches
- Huesca +276 / Eibar -101
Eibar is a mess. They’ve lost 3-of-5 and drew in their other 2 matches. Huesca heads into this after beating Granada 3-2 on Feb. 21. These two drew in the last head-to-head. But if the odds hold, Huesca is an overlay.
Soccer Free Pick: Huesca
- Barcelona +114 / Sevilla +218
This weekend’s top LaLiga Primera Division match has Messi and his mates heading to Sevilla to take on one of the hottest squads in the league. Save for a 2-3 loss to Dortmund in a Champions League match on Feb. 17, Sevilla has rocked it.
Barcelona has lost 2-of-4, one of the losses was against Sevilla on Feb. 10, and drew with Cadiz in their last. Give the home team the nod.
Soccer Free Pick: Sevilla
- Osasuna +208 / Alaves +154
Osasuna versus Alaves is a tale of two teams going in opposite directions. Alaves has lost their last couple of matches. Osasuna has won their last two. Does that mean Alaves is a play against? Nope. It’s more probable the home team turns their form around than Osasuna wins three in a row.
Soccer Free Pick: Alaves
- Valencia +210 / Getafe +136
Getafe is on a 4-match losing streak. The losing streak doesn’t make Valencia the play, though. The road team did win their last match, but these two drew in the last head-to-head. In the match before, Getafe dominated Valencia 3-0.
Soccer Free Pick: Getafe
Sunday, Feb. 28th Matches
- Valladolid +298 / Celta de Vigo -125
Neither squad deserves backing, which is okay. Why? Celta de Vigo and Valladolid have drawn in the last three head-to-head matches. Why not make it four in a row?
Soccer Free Pick: Draw
- Betis -105 / Cadiz +263
Don’t read too much into Cadiz’s draw with Barcelona in their last. Barca hasn’t gotten on track since PSG dominated them 4-1 in their last Champions League match. Betis has won their last two. They beat Cadiz 1-0 on Dec. 23. The road team is the play.
Soccer Free Pick: Betis
- Elche +359 / Granada -140
Granada’s loss to Huesca on Feb. 21 is worrisome. But three days before they beat Napoli 2-0 in a Europa League match. Also, Granada won the head-to-head in both 2019 and 2020.
Soccer Free Pick: Granada
- Atletico Madrid +134 / Villareal +208
Atletico’s form has gone south. AM drew 1-1 with Levante on Feb. 17. On Feb. 20, Levante beat Atletico 2-0. Villareal drew with Bilbao in their last. They can upset the favored road team.
Soccer Free Pick: Villareal
Monday, March 1st Match
- Sociedad +288 / Real Madrid -128
Real is on fire. The home favorite has won 4 in a row. Sociedad is in good form as well, though. The road team has won 3-of-4. The lone loss was against Manchester United in a Europa League match. These two drew last September. Madrid and Sociedad split the other two 2020 matches. Real should win but the odds on Sociedad makes them overlay. That’s the way we’re going.
Soccer Free Pick: Sociedad
