Elche vs Deportivo La Coruna and Villarreal vs Atletico Madrid

Elche are currently in 14th position after managing to accumulate an overall of 34 points. Over the course of the season they were not able to instill their gaming philosophy, which left them bad a string of negative results at times. While playing at home they won 5 times, while the rest of the encounters ended in 3 draws and 9 losses. Nevertheless, Bet365 has decided to rank them the preferential side to win 2.25 (5/4) at home against Deportivo La Coruna.

The visiting team have endured quite an uncertain campaign. At the moment they sit in the relegation spot (18th) with only 29 points to their name. Their form during the last games has seen them clinch only disappointing results (3 draws and 2 losses). That is the main reason why their chances of success are quite limited 3.40 (12/5), while a tie between them stands at 3.20 (11/5), an event that is also likely.

Villarreal is gearing up to host Atletico Madrid on Wednesday evening in what is sure to be a thrilling match for many supported and betting players alike. The Yellow submarine will endure a difficult time as Diego Someone’s team boasts some of the best talents in La Liga. At the moment the club from the Valencian Community are in 6th position with an overall of 53 points. This is pretty decent considering they have been fighting previously in the second league.

Although Atletico Madrid lost quite a few big name players during last summer, they are still a force to be reckoned with in the top flight of Spanish football. Occupying 3rd place with 72 points, they are 7 points behind rivals Real Madrid and 9 points behind leaders Barcelona. Mobile betting sites have therefore decided to earmark them for the win 2.20 (6/5), while a draw stands at a high 3.20 (23/10). Villarreal are not considered a serious threat for this game 3.40 (12/5).

Rayo Vallecano vs Valencia and Granada vs Espanyol

Valencia Rayo

After 33 encounters in La Liga, Rayo Vallecano sit in 11th place occupying a mid-table position. Over the last 5 games they won on 2 occasions, with the other matches ending in 3 losses. While playing on their home ground they notched 7 wins, 1 draw and a disappointing 8 losses. That is why mobile sports betting providers don’t believe they have the necessary capacity to win against such a string side as Valencia. Their odds for the game are rather unfavorable 4.00 (3/1).

Valencia are 4th on the table after managing to accumulate a total of 68 points so far this season. Although they have been great, in recent times they have experienced a lack in fortunes, as they tied and won each on 2 occasions and also lost once in the last 5 encounters. On the road they clinched 6 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses, however despite the uncertain stats they boast likely odds 1.91 (10/11) against the Madrid based side.

Granada will play Espanyol at home on Wednesday at 22:00 CET, and looking at their individual records in the league both sides are considered quite ambiguous. The hosts have been assigned favorite status 2.50 (3/2), as they will be playing at home. However, in reality achieving a win for them is not very likely as their current home stands at 3 wins, 9 draws and 4 losses. Currently, they sit in 19th spot with 25 points, so the next game will prove to be of vital importance to them.

The Catalan side are in a better position, standing in 10th place after managing to collect 42 points from 33 outings so far this season. When they have played games away from home they recorded only 3 victories, while the other encounters resulted in 4 draws and 9 losses. Online sportsbooks in Spain therefore assigned them odds of 3.00 (2/1), although a tie 3.10 (21/10) between the two is most likely, judging the records of both teams.
