Real Betis is on the road today to face Atletico Bilbao and despite solid play against that side in recent fixtures, the hosts should emerge on top today.Bet today and take advantage of a sweet deal from William Hill where you can land a $100 betting bonus simply by opening a free account!
Last year's midfield maestro for Real Betis, Benat Etxebarria, has reached the Spanish national team. He will face his old club for the first time today as he laces up the boots for an improved Atletico Bilbao side that currently sits sixth in the table after five games.
Bilbao has scored in every game this season and has given tough matches to Real Madrid and Espanyol in the last few weeks.
Take the hosts at 2.00 to take the win here at home. They have struggled in the past with Betis but look very different this year, are 2-0 at home so far, and now have their opponent's best player from last year.
The home win with both teams to score is at 3.75, which offers some very good value.
I also like the over 2.5 goals here at 1.80. The last three Atletico matches have hit four goals and all but one game this year has cracked the over. The hosts have scored twice in every game except one this year.
Betis has had past success when on the road against Bilbao having won two in a row at San Mamas Stadium and three of the last four meetings have gone their way. But a string of injuries and resting of players due to playing in the Europa League this year will see them a bit depleted this time around. They are coming off a lame 0-0 draw at home against Granada.
The draw is slated at 3.50 while the visitor win is offered at 3.60, both picks available at William Hill. The Betis draw no bet selection is at 2.62 if you think history will repeat itself.
