The Spanish La Liga has fans right across the globe. It is a hugely exciting and competitive league that is home to many of the world’s best football players, and as such, it offers many betting opportunities. Here at mr.play Sports you will find all you need to bet on La Liga. There are hundreds of markets covering all aspects of the sport together with some of the most competitive odds around, giving you the chance to win a big more from every bet you place.
La Liga Odds & Markets
If you are new to football betting, then you may feel slightly overwhelmed when you see the sheer number of La Liga betting markets on offer. It is definitely worth taking a bit of time to explore and understand them all, as this will give you the best chance of placing winning bets. Broadly speaking, the markets are split into two categories; Outright markets, which relate to the league as a whole, and Game Odds, which relate to the individual matches.
The great thing about outright markets is that they usually have very generous odds, nearly always better than even, so they give you the chance to win big. The most straightforward market is the league winner. This bet can be placed at almost any time during a season and the odds will be updated as the season progresses. This means that by keeping your eyes open, you may be able to spot some great opportunities, such as if a team that you think will win starts poorly and as a result has longer odds.
There is always great competition at the top of the league, not only because teams want to win, but also because they want to qualify for the Champions League or the Europa League. This means that the Top 4 Finish market can be very exciting. There are many more outright markets available. You can bet on the League Winner Without Team x or y, which is a bet on which team will do best after the top teams are excluded. At the other end of the table, you can bet on which teams will be relegated. You will also find bets such as the top goal scorer. Be sure to check the outright markets regularly throughout the season as you never know what opportunities you may come across.
Of course, most of the La Liga bets you place will be on the weekly matches and it is usual to find more than 100 betting markets on offer for each and every game. Once again, the bets start simple with the 1X2 Full Time market, a bet on a team to win or the game ending in a draw. However, as you start digging into the markets, you will realise that they become far more specific. For instance, you could bet on the Total Goals in a match, this is an Over/Under bet, so for example you could bet on there being more than 1.5 goals.
The markets are split into easy to navigate categories, including Main, Goals, Halves, Period and Specials. The vast majority of the bets are self-explanatory, and if you do need some help, you will find it in the Betting Rules section. The range is incredible, you can bet on the first team to score, winning margin, handicap betting, own goals, and far more. In other words, you can bet on virtually every aspect of a football match.
La Liga Live In-Play Betting
The Outright and Game Odds markets are for use before a match starts, live in-play betting allows you to continue the betting action as a game is taking place. The odds are updated in real time as the match progresses, and it is a great way to make watching a match even more exciting. You will find many of the same markets available in-play as before a match, so you can still bet on which team will win, the score, and so on. However, there is a special type of bet that is only available in-play. The ‘Next To’ bets give you the chance to bet on the next thing that will happen in a match, such as the Next to Score, Next Penalty, Next Foul, Next Corner and so on. This means that while watching the match, you can use your own understanding of the game to spot betting opportunities, such as if you think a team suddenly looks threatening and likely to score. Better yet, on the in-play betting page you will also find live updates from the match as well as statistics to help you place better-informed bets.
La Liga Facts
The La Liga was started in 1929 and today, twenty teams compete to lift the trophy at the end of each season. The league is home to some of the most followed football teams in the world, such as Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as some of the world’s top players who are drawn to these massive teams. While the league tends to be dominated by those two teams, it remains a highly competitive league with many more excellent clubs in it.
At the end of each season, the teams that finish in the bottom three places are relegated to the Segunda Division and the top two teams from the Segunda Division are promoted to La Liga. There is then a playoff competition for the final promotion spot between the teams that finished third to sixth.
