La Liga Matchday 31 betting picks

After a week off due to the Copa del Rey final, the La Liga action returns this weekend with 10 matches of top-flight Spanish football. Below are our free soccer betting picks for Matchday 31.

Real Betis vs Celta Vigo

Friday, April 12 – 9pm CET – Estadio Benito Villamarin

Sitting just three points clear of the relegation zone, Celta Vigo head to the Benito Villamarin as underdogs against Real Betis. Despite their poor position on the table, Celta have lost just one of their past five matches, whereas Betis are on a run of four straight losses. The visitors are also unbeaten in the past five meetings between the sides, which suggests there is a great chance of an upset.

Celta Vigo to win


Atletico Madrid vs Girona

Saturday, April 13 – 2pm CET – Civitas Metropolitano

After an inconsistent couple of months, Atletico Madrid now hold just a two-point margin on the fifth-placed Athletic Bilbao. Hosting the third-placed Girona in the best matchup of the weekend, Atleti will seeing revenge after a 4-3 loss in the reverse fixture. The home team enters this match as favourites with top La Liga bookmakers, and given that Girona have lost their past four away matches, Atletico are the smarter bet.

Atletico Madrid to win


Rayo Vallecano vs Getafe

Saturday, April 13 – 4:15pm CET – Campo de Futbol de Vallecas

Rayo Vallecano have been in poor form recently, winning just one of their past 11 matches. However, facing Getafe in a Madrid derby, they are favourites with top La Liga bookmakers given they are at home and also undefeated in the past six matchups between the sides. As the visitors are winless in their past six away matches, back the home side to earn a vital victory.

Rayo Vallecano to win


Mallorca vs Real Madrid

Saturday, April 13 – 6:30pm CET – Estadi Mallorca Son Moix

Holding an eight-point lead at the top of the table, Real Madrid seem to be cruising towards the La Liga title. They come in as strong favourites for their trip to Mallorca, but as they are in between Champions League fixtures, expect plenty of squad rotation. Mallorca have won their past two home matches, so adding both teams to score offers great value.

Real Madrid / Both teams to score


Cadiz vs Barcelona

Saturday, April 13 – 9pm CET – Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla

On a run of 11 matches undefeated, the second-placed Barcelona are an imposing prospect for relegation contenders Cadiz. Despite only losing one of their past five matches, the home side holds the worst attacking record in La Liga and has not scored against Barcelona in the last three meetings. The Blaugrana are expected to rotate their squad due to Champions League obligations, but they should still be too strong.

Barcelona to win


Las Palmas vs Sevilla

Sunday, April 14 – 2pm CET – Estadio de Gran Canaria

Winless in their past six matches, Las Palmas have tumbled down the table in recent weeks as a result of their offensive struggles. That poor form is expected to continue when they face Sevilla in a mid-table clash, with the visitors winning the past seven matches between the sides. Given they have lost just two of their past nine games, Sevilla offer great value for the win at +162 with Bovada.

Sevilla to win


Granada vs Deportivo Alaves

Sunday, April 14 – 4:15pm CET – Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes

Sitting 19th and bound for relegation, Granada are just playing for pride as they welcome the 13th-placed Deportivo Alaves. Goalless in their past two matches, Alaves have an excellent chance to turn their poor form around given they won the reverse fixture 3-1. However, as both sides are in unconvincing form and struggling offensively, don’t expect much scoring.

Under 2.5 goals


Athletic Club vs Villarreal

Sunday, April 14 – 6:30pm CET – San Mames

Fresh off an exciting Copa del Rey victory last weekend, Athletic Club now turn their focus towards the league as they sit just two points outside the top four. Hosting the 10th-placed Villarreal, they enter as favourites given they are unbeaten in their past 18 home matches. While the visitors have shown glimpses of quality this season, their defence has consistently let them down.

Athletic Club / Over 2.5 goals


Real Sociedad vs Almeria

Sunday, April 14 – 9pm CET – Reale Arena

Winners of their past three matches, Real Sociedad have now recovered from their mid-season slump to sit five points clear inside the top six. Welcoming the last-placed Almeria, expect the Basque club’s good form to continue, with the visitors conceding goals left and right this season.

Real Sociedad / Over 2.5 goals


Osasuna vs Valencia

Monday, April 15 – 9pm CET – Estadio El Sadar

Chasing an unlikely top-six spot, the seventh-placed Valencia have lost just one of their past six matches. On the road against fellow top-half side Osasuna, this match is tough to pick as the home team is coming off an excellent win before the break. Osasuna won the reverse fixture on the road, but given that both teams have scored in six of the past seven encounters, the safe bet is to back goals at either end.

Both teams to score
