Arguably the most exciting La Liga title race in the 21st century is on as we see just 5 points separating 1st place and 6th place. Real Madrid and Barcelona don’t have the squad capable of running away with the league and Atletico Madrid are not the type of team who likes to do things easily. This matchday 12 of La Liga has some very important games in relation to the top six. Check out our soccer betting odds so that you can make the right soccer pick!
Sevilla FC vs. CA Osasuna
Saturday, October 30, 2021 – 10:15 AM EDT at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán
Osasuna are on this magnificent run of form that has seen them jump up to 6th place in the league. Last time out they managed to secure a very notable 0-0 draw against Real Madrid away from home. A win for Osasuna here would see them jump ahead of Sevilla, this is a game they would love to win.
Sevilla finally have their chance to win the La Liga with so many teams being weakened or not picking up the sort of results they would have hoped for. Sevilla have proved to us they can fight on two fronts in both the La Liga and Champions League this season, and Europa League in the past.
With all this being said we absolutely love that Del Cerro is the referee in charge here, he has seen an average of 6.40 cards per game. Both Sevilla and Osasuna have seen over 2 cards per game on average. Yes, we are laying some juice here but this is a bet that should hit.
Atletico Madrid vs. Real Betis Balompie
Sunday, October 31, 2021 - 11:15 AM EDT at Wanda Metropolitano
Arguably the game of the weekend sees 4th place Real Betis travel to the capital to face 6th position Atletico Madrid, with just two points separating the two teams, we are expecting fireworks in this one.
Betis have a 3-1-1 away record, whilst Madrid have seen a 3-2-0 home record this season. It’s a fixture that has seen the home side undefeated in the last ten games on home soil, and although our pick here is going to be over 2.5 goals and both teams to score, all five of the previous five games played at the Wanda Metropolitano have seen under 2.5 goals.
Both teams have solid defences and this is the sort of game many would expect to end 0-0 or 1-0 and maybe it does but for us their too much value to be had on the over 2.5 and both teams to score. There’s a lot on the line for both teams here and although a draw wouldn’t be the worst, especially for Betis, we see Madrid wanting to win this and they most likely win and both teams find the back of the net.

Levante UD vs. Granada CF
Monday, November 01, 2021 - 04:00 PM EDT at Estadi Ciutat de València
We have a big relegation game taking place in Valencia this weekend as Levante play host to Granada. Both teams earned a hard-fought draw in their midweek games as Levante managed a surprise 2-2 home draw against Atletico Madrid, whilst Granada scored in the 97th minute away to Getafe to earn themselves a point,
This now leaves Levante in 19th on 6 points and Granada in 17th position with 8 points. We are expecting a very cagey game here between two teams who love picking up cards and both have been averaging just over 3 per game. With that amount of cards per game and given the fact it’s a relegation zone dog fight, we believe there to be some nice soccer odds on a red card to be handed out in this fixture at +250.
J Sanchez is the appointed referee here and he has averaged 5 Cards per game. On top of this, we have Levante who have already seen two red cards this season and surprisingly Granada have yet to pick up a red card this league campaign. What Granada have managed to do is give up 3 red cards this season to their opponents.
