Bet: Both Teams to Score

Despite some skeptical preseason sports betting predictions, Segunda winner Alaves are doing really well in La Liga. They sit in the middle of the table – on the safe distance from the relegation zone. What’s more, Pellegrini’s side have recently blown up the betting markets by beating Celta in the Copa del Rey semi-final, so they made their way right to the final battle against Barcelona.

Before the start of the season the sports betting companies didn’t set much hope on Sevilla. However, los Rojiblancos exceeded all expectations. Once in a blue moon Sampaoli’s team are fighting for the trophy, sitting on the third position – only 2 points behind the leader. Besides, the betting experts didn’t expect Sevilla to reach the Champions League playoff stage.

Before choosing a bet it should be mentioned that Alaves are really hard to beat. Only Real Madrid, Barcelona and Espanyol managed to get a victory on the Alaves’ territory. At the same time Sevilla don’t always show perfect performances on the road, though they have improved their away results comparing to the last season. The betting experts mention that Alaves will play without suspended Torres, Alexis and Katai, while los Rojiblancos will miss Nasri, Tremoulinas and Krohn-Dehli.

Predictably the bookmakers give preference to the visitors: Alaves – 4,00, Draw – 3,35, Sevilla – 2,03. Of course you may back Sevilla’s win, but it is recommended to pay attention to the bet “Total Goals by Home Team over 0,5” (1,50) as Alaves score quite regularly while Sevilla’s defense lacks consistency. Besides, there is a good bet “Both Teams to Score” (1,93). Finally, you may risk to choose “Asian Handicap Alaves +0,75” (1,62).
