It’s round 11 of the Spanish La Liga and we have some big games to look forward to this mid-week. We have some nice average La Liga betting odds of +135 across our four selections. These matches come just a few days after round 10 matches, some teams could prove to be tired and we will look to use this to advantage our soccer picks.
RCD Espanyol vs. Athletic Bilbao
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 – 03:00 PM EDT at RCDE Stadium
Just three points separate these two teams and Espanyol has been very strong at home this season, picking up a total of 10 points from a potential 15.
Bilbao has also proved to be strong away from home as they have picked up 6 points from 12, which is the 7th best in the league, but more importantly, they have yet to lose away from home.
We are looking to take both teams over 4.5 corners here at +150. Both teams home and away have seen an average of 5.5 corners, on top of this Espanyol has conceded an average of 7 corners on home soil and Bilboa has allowed 5 per game.
We love the +150 value on this La Liga play.
Real Betis vs. Valencia CF
Wednesday, October 27, 2021 - 02:00 PM EDT at Estadio Benito Villamarín
9th place Betis take on 10th place Valencia in this Wednesday evening La Liga clash. Recent games between these two have seen plenty of goals and we believe both teams to score at -110 is the play here. 4 of the previous 5 matchups have seen this play cash.
Betis has seen both teams finding the back of the net in 4 of their 6 home games this season and Valencia has seen both teams scoring in 4 of their 5 away games.
They won’t want to settle for a draw here as it’s a chance to beat a close rival in the league table and push themselves up into the European football spots.
Real Madrid vs. CA Osasuna
Wednesday, October 27, 2021 - 03:30 PM EDT at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu
After securing their 2-1 win over Barcelona in El Clasico, they have moved to within one point of league leaders, Real Sociedad. Sociedad dropped two points at the weekend in their game over Atletico Madrid, although one would argue almost every team in the league would be happy to come away with a draw in the Wanda Metropolitano.
We have a very exciting matchup here between Madrid and Osasuna. The away side is overachieving in the league as they sit in 6th place, and miraculously in a position to go top of the league with an unexpected win over Real Madrid here.
We see Osasuna really going for it here, and Madrid has started to look like a strong team this season, at least much stronger than was maybe expected. Madrid has averaged 5.3 corners at home and Osasuna lead the league in away corners as they have averaged 7 per game.
We like the over 9.5 corners here for plus money.

Celta de Vigo vs. Real Sociedad
Thursday, October 28, 2021 - 01:00 PM EDT at Estadio de Balaidos
This is no doubt a bold prediction on paper, but hear us out here. Sociedad has been in amazing form this season sitting top of the league, whilst Celta de Vigo looks dismal, they have only managed to pick up 7 points from their 9 league games played, and quite frankly they are very lucky their not inside the relegation zone. Luckily for them there are worse teams.
It’s not that we don’t think Sociedad can win here, they have proved how strong they are away from home with 3 wins and 1 draw in their last five visits to the Estadio de Balaidos.
Celta de Vigo double chance or +1 is the best play here but unfortunately, La Liga odds are only in around -140, but the win is +200, which seems a little much.
Sociedad are due a dip in form and Vigo are due a win, let’s hope this is the game they turn in on.
