Thursday 18 June

Alaves 31/10 
Draw 23/10 
Sociedad 19/20
Since the return of football, last week Alaves have been dropping points easily and as a result, they are sliding down the table closer to the relegation batch. Real Sociedad were also disappointing in their last match play to a one-all draw at home to Osasuna. The visitors are now two points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid which makes this a must-win tie if they are serious about qualifying for UCL next season. Back the visitors to grind a win here.

Real Madrid 7/20 
Draw 4/1 
Valencia 13/2
Real Madrid are five points behind the log leaders Barcelona who have played one game extra which means the league is sizing to be a photofinishing run this season based on the point differences. Los Blancos will fancy their chances against an inconsistent Valencia side but will be aware that anything besides a win will mean goodbye to their title hopes. Real Madrid needs this one more so back the hosts at 7/20.

Granada 43/20 
Draw 43/20 
Villarreal 27/20
In-form Granada will be looking to extend their unbeaten run when they host Villarreal on Friday night. The hosts have been very difficult to beat lately especially when playing at home and I expect them to get something out of this match. At home, the Nazaries have lost only three of their 14 attempts so far and are unbeaten at home in the prior seven fixtures. Villarreal are no pushovers and they are slowly finding their feet. The Yellow Submarine are enjoying a two-match winning streak after beating both Mallorca and Celta Vigo by a goal to nil. Prior to that, the visitors had lost three matches on the bounce. Granada should come out victories here at 43/20. 

Mallorca 7/4 
Draw 39/20 
Leganes 18/10
Mallorca is on a two-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 1-0 loss at home against Villarreal last time out. The 1-2 win on the road against Eibar in early March this year was their only win in their recent five fixtures in the schedule. Leganes is at the ultimate bottom of the table with their last two matches ending in a loss. This is a six-pointer and anyone who losses this match will be relegated. It’s hard to trust either team on current form so back Under 2.5 Goals at 9/20.

Sevilla 11/4 
Draw 26/10 
Barcelona 9/10
As expected at the start of the season, Barcelona and Real Madrid are fighting it out for the title. Sevilla will be a very tricky game for the defending champions despite their incredible form.  The home side is unbeaten in their recent five matches with two draws in it. The formula is simple for Barcelona – win all your games and you will be crowned champions.  A win here will be a huge confidence booster for the Catalan side and this looks to be their last real test. A tough here but back Barcelona and Both Team to Score at 43/20.

Espanyol 1/1 
Draw 24/10 
Levante 28/10
Espanyol have done incredibly great to close the gap and they are now starting to believe they can survive the axe. A win will take them out of the relegation zone for the first time this season. Levante come into this game with a terrible form of three consecutive draws but they are still nowhere near the red zone. This is a golden opportunity for Espanyol which they need to take with both hands. Get on the hosts to win at even money and include in all Multiples. 

Bilbao 11/10 
Draw 9/4 
Real Betis 26/10
Bilbao were disappointing in their last match against Eibar were they were beaten 2-1. That defeat makes Bilbao the most unpredictable team in La Liga. The host have won nine, draw 12 and lost eight of their 29 matches so you never know which team will show up. Real Betis haven’t won a game since the return of football though they gave it their all in the last encounter against Granada but were unfortunate to concede a late goal. This should be a tactical low scoring affair so back Under 2.5 Goals. 

Getafe 8/10 
Draw 47/20 
Eibar 38/10
Just like the previous campaign, Getafe are struggling to maintain consistency towards the business end of the season. The host missed out on top four last season because of their poor string of results towards the end and again this season they are victims of dropping points when it matters most – picking up just one point in the last three. Failure to win this match will be the end of Getafe’s hopes of UCL next season. Get on Getafe to return to winning ways. 

Atl Madrid 4/10 
Draw 33/10 
Valladolid 8/1
Atletico Madrid returned to winning ways when thumping Osasuna 5-0 on Wednesday night and returned to fourth spot. That win will be confidence boost for Diego Simeone’s men who are in desperate need of points as they can’t afford to miss out on Champions League next season. This should be another easy win for Atletico Madrid, get on the 4/10.

Sunday 21 June

Celta De Vigo 9/10 
Draw 22/10 
Alaves 34/10
Celta Vigo are overwhelming favourites to win this match but for me there is no evidence as to why they are priced up at 9/10. Personally, I’d never back such odds on a team that hasn’t won in their last five matches. Alaves need to avoid defeat in such matches and they will be safe from relegation. Back these sides to cancel each other out. 

Valencia 17/20 
Draw 26/10 
Osasuna 31/10
It was raining goals the last time these two teams met with Osasuna emerging 3-1 winners. Los Che are eighth on the log standing and if they continue dropping points they will miss out on European football next season. Osasuna were humbled by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday and their confidence will be low xoming into this tie. I’m not confident about this one but back Valencia to win. 

Sociedad 28/10 
Draw 29/10 
Real Madrid 17/20
This game could be the match that ends Real Madrid’s title hopes. Sociedad won three of their last four meetings and the fact that Real Madrid were involved in a tough match on Thursday against Valencia makes it even better for the hosts. Since Socedad and Madrid are in a decent form, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at Reale Seguros Stadium. For a safer bet back Both Teams to Score.

TREBLE @ 10/1
Getafe Win 8/10
Espanyol Win 1/1
Barcelona and Both Team to Score at 43/20
