Introduction to La Liga odds
La Liga is the top flight in Spanish football (soccer) with headlining teams such as FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid. It is also one of the most storied leagues in the entire world and is generally considered to be one of the four best and most competitive leagues on Earth.
LaLiga betting odds are just odds assigned to matches during the 38-game season, during which every team will play every other team twice, once at home and once on the road. The final winner is the team with the most points— three points are earned for a win, one for a draw, and zero for a loss.
How to Read La Liga Odds
La Liga betting odds are most commonly found in the form of moneylines, or straight-up wagers on which team is going to win a game, or if there is going to be a draw. The outcome with the lowest value is the favorite, and the others are considered underdogs.
Any outcome that is preceded by a “-” is almost always the outright favorite and indicated negative odds, which means that bettors will have to provide greater risks to earn a chance at turning a better profit. Any outcome led by a “+” has positive odds, which are less likely to occur but will generate a greater profit if they hit, making them the most enticing for bettors.
How to Bet on La Liga
La Liga betting lines become most popular on the weekends when a majority of the La Liga matches occur. Bettors can find everything from futures on the race to the title or Golden Boot to player props, goal totals, and Asian handicaps.
Sportsbooks usually highlight La Liga games under football (or soccer) subheadings in their sidebars or drop-down menus.
