Key La Liga betting tips
Expect a lot of goals
With an average of 2.94 goals per game, the Spanish football league is currently one of the most prolific leagues in the world. One game out of three even ends up with +3.5 goals difference, which gives you plenty of rewarding over 2.5 goals betting opportunities.
Avoid betting on draws
An important stat to take into account to win your bets on La Liga, is the weakness of the number of draws throughout the season. With a ratio of 23%, the parity scores only concern one match out of five, which is the smallest volume of the major leagues. We know the odds can be attractive, but we recommend you avoid placing this type of bet too often.
Expect action after the 75th minute
In the last few seasons close to 25% of the goals have been scored in the last 15 minutes. This is a reliable stat you should take into account, especially considering that this type of bet usually comes at 1.75 to 1.90 odds.
Bet well on La Liga
Bet on both teams to score
Another important stat in Spanish football, is the volume of encounters in which both teams end up scoring. Indeed, in the season 2016-2017 as many as 55% of the matches saw the two teams score. Another fantastic opportunity for you to grab with odds often around 1.80 depending on the games.
