Huesca v Valladolid
Let’s get looking at our best Feb 2nd La Liga betting tips. It’s another busy weekend of La Liga fixtures get started on Friday evening as two teams with the threat of relegation hanging over them aim to relieve a bit of the pressure they have placed on themselves. The locals are bottom of the charts and easy to oppose, after taking just one point from the last nine available to them. They have lost two of their last three and we’re backing them to suffer another painful defeat as they edge towards the drop. Valladolid won last time and can double up at 47/20 with 888sport.
Levante v Getafe
The first of four games scheduled for Saturday and Getafe will be looking to battle to a valuable three points on the road and keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top-six and collecting the European football qualification that comes with it. The visitors lost last time out; however, they have stats of 8-7-6 and sit just five points off the top-four, already ahead of the likes of Valencia and Real Betis. A big ask, but they should be backed for the win at 17/10 with Coral. That’s best backed as a single at interest stakes to keep things lively.
Our Tip: Getafe to win – 17/10 with Coral
Real Sociedad v Athletic Bilbao
This promises to be an entertaining fixture with just two places and one point separating the sides going into the round. The locals are currently better off and bring a four-game unbeaten run into this one, following back-to-back wins with a couple of draws in their last two outings. Bilbao has little to fear on the basis of recent form and has won three and drawn one of their last four. We’re going to sit on the fence and back the rivals to cancel each other out. The draw makes most appeal at 12/5 – top price when getting your money down at Bet365.
Barcelona v Valencia
Barcelona is top of the league and on an eye-catching winning run that has them odds-on favourites to retain their title. They have collected 15 points from the last 15 available to them and enjoy a five-point cushion over nearest rivals Atletico Madrid. Valencia can’t boast the same stats; although they are improving, the visitors have failed to win half of their last four. They should leave this one empty-handed and we’re adding Barca to our accumulators at 3/10 (Ladbrokes). That won’t make you rich on its own, but it’ll help boost the returns of multiples.
Celta Vigo v Sevilla
Sevilla won last time out to help hold their ground in the top-four and keep them on track for a Champions League finish this season; however, that win remains their only positive in five La Liga starts, their recent from reading draw-draw-loss-loss-win. That doesn’t do a lot to inspire confidence in backers; however, Celta Vigo is almost unbackable on the back of five defeats on the trot. The hosts are down in the relegation zone and form alone makes them a club best avoided at present. Get your cash down on a Sevilla cheer at 21/20, a price you’ll get with most firms, including Unibet.
Villarreal v Espanyol
Villarreal’s season continues to go from bad to worse; they can be found second bottom of the table with 18 points on the board, already five behind Rayo Vallecano and safety. The locals lost last time out to take their form to two defeats from three, the spare being a draw on their penultimate go. There’s not a lot to get excited about there and we’re more than happy to have our stake money down on the draw. Espanyol has lost each of their last three and we’re confident both managers will see the value in a share, avoiding the dangers another defeat will bring. The level finish can be backed at 5/2 with most respectable firms, including Coral and that’s a punt best suited to singles for small stakes.
Our Tip: A draw – 5/2 at Coral
Real Betis v Atletico Madrid
Real Betis enjoy home advantage; however, they set-up for this match having lost four of their last five, winning only one during that poor run of form. That’s the reason you’ll find the visitors as hot favourites to collect all three points. Atletico sits second in the charts and rate as Barcelona’s main danger to another crown. They have collected 13 points from the last 15 on the table and travel with victory in each of their three most recent outings. This looks a strong Atletico Madrid win and we’ll have them in our weekend accumulators at Coral’s 6/5. That price looks about right.
Our Tip: Atletico Madrid – 6/5 at Coral
Eibar v Girona
Eibar have suffered just one defeat in five and that improved form has lifted them to 10th in the La Liga table; however, draws have stunted their progress of late, finishing level in three of their last five, including their most recent outing. Girona has drawn three of five and, after losing each of their last two, we expect they’d accept another share if they were offered it before kick-off. Follow the clues given to us by the form and back a draw at a decent 11/4 with Bet365. Another bet that would work best as a single.
Real Madrid v Alaves
Real Madrid has been unable to carry their stunning Champions League form into their domestic campaign; despite dominating Europe to set records, their wait for a La Liga title rumbles on and isn’t expected to end anytime soon. They are third in the league with stats of 12-3-6; however, they have won each of their last three and we’re hot on the chances of them adding a fourth this weekend. Unibet trade 1/4 and although that’s plenty short, it’s the general feeling in the market at present.
Rayo Vallecano v Leganes
The last of our Feb 2nd La Liga betting tips is for Rayo Vallecano v Leganes. These sides sit locked on 23 points heading into the weekend and that has them two better than Celta Vigo and the relegation zone. Which side will answer the call and gain the points needed to afford themselves a bit of breathing space? We’re with the home win at 13/10 (Unibet).
