Real Betis-Real Valladolid Betting Preview: Why both teams to score looks like the best option
After two winners in Spain over the weekend, our La Liga expert Phil Kitromilides believes neither side will keep a clean sheet in Seville on Monday eveningBack-to-back defeats have somewhat halted the momentum gathered by Real Betis in recent weeks, but the Andalusians have a chance to get back to winning ways this evening when they host Valladolid.
Bet365 price a victory for the home team at 10/11 (1.91) while a win for the visitors can be backed at 31/10 (4.10).
However as always with matches in La Liga it is well worth considering backing both teams to score and the price of 5/6 (1.83) looks to hold some considerable value. Valladolid have had little problem in finding the back of the net recently, scoring in each of their last six games.
It is also worth noting that they have managed goals against both Barcelona and Real Madrid and against a Betis side who have been erratic at best at home, they will fancy their chances of netting once more.
For their part, the side from Seville do look dangerous going forward and the threat posed by their in form striker Ruben Castro is a very real one.
They also happen to have scored in each one of their last 25 league games at the Benito Villamarin, thus making both teams to score look like an excellent bet, especially at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365.
For some higher odds try backing the aforementioned Castro to open the scoring at 4/1 (5.00) with the man from Las Palmas having netted in three of his last four home games.
