Top LaLiga Games to Watch this Weekend (Dec. 18th – 20th)
Friday, Dec. 18th Match
- Huesca +298 / Bilbao +104
Bilbao has 2 draws and 2 losses in their last 4 matches. Huesca has won 2 in a row. Although Bilbao looks solid for the win, and they also offer fair odds, Huesca is the play. The underdog is battling to keep their La Liga Primera Division spot. They should carry over their recent form into this Friday match.
La Liga Free Pick: Huesca
Saturday, Dec. 19th Matches
- Elche +1 ½ (+102) / Atletico Madrid -1 ½ (-135)
Atletico is on fire. The lone loss in their last 5 happened versus rival Real Madrid. Elche heads into this off a win, but that was versus Bunol at the Copa del Rey. We’re laying the goal and a half.
La Liga Free Pick: Atletico Madrid
- Valencia +1 ½ (-106) / Barcelona -1 ½ (-105)
Barca hasn’t beaten their last couple of opponents by more than a goal. Valencia has a win, a loss, and 3 draws in their last 5. They can push for a draw here. The safer play is to take the goal and a half.
La Liga Free Pick: Valencia
- Villareal +106 / Osasuna +261
It’s difficult to trust Osasuna. They’ve got 3 wins on the season and this does appear like they could, possibly, notch another victory, but Villareal has 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5. They’ll hand Osasuna their eighth loss of the season.
La Liga Free Pick:
- Real Sociedad +108 / Levante +246
These two have drawn in 2 of the last 3 head-to-head matches. Sociedad looks strong. Levante has an edge, though, because they’re at home. Why not pull the trigger on the draw?
La Liga Free Pick: Draw
Sunday, Dec. 20th Matches
- Alaves +363 / Celta de Vigo -147
Celta de Vigo rides a 3 match winning streak into their battle with Alaves. We’d consider backing Alaves, but Celta dominated them 6-0 in a June match. It’s difficult to see the chalk dropping this game.
La Liga Free Pick: Celta de Vigo
- Betis +173 / Granada +148
In the lone match this year, Betis and Granada drew 2-2. Because this could go either way, it makes sense to either back Betis at +173, or go with the draw. We’ll side with the draw.
La Liga Free Pick: Draw
- Getafe +141 / Cadiz +229
Cadiz played great in the 2-1 upset victory over Barcelona on Dec. 5. But then, they fell apart in an 0-4 loss to Celta de Vigo in their very next match. Getafe has 2 draws and 2 losses in their last 5. They must travel to Cadiz. Give the home underdog a shot.
La Liga Free Pick: Cadiz
- Real Madrid -1 (-116) / Eibar +1 (-113)
Real has outscored Eibar 7-1 in the last couple of head-to-head matches. The favorites have played well, winning 4-of-5, including beating tough Bundesliga squad Monchengladbach 2-0 in a Champions League match. Real wins on the handicap.
La Liga Free Pick: Real Madrid
