The Spanish La Liga continues with Matchday 3 over the weekend, and we’re about to see a great game between Real Betis and Real Madrid at Estadio Benito Villamarin in Sevilla on Saturday, September 26. 

While Betis kicked off the new season in a strong fashion, winning a couple of games without conceding, the reigning champs earned just a draw in their opening game last weekend.

Los Blancos will look to bounce back Saturday in Sevilla, so here’s my best Betis vs. Real Madrid betting pick along with the latest odds update and all key betting tips.

Betis vs. Real Madrid Odds

BTTS YES-143
BTTS NO+104
Betis to Win+300
Real Madrid to Win+300
Draw-125
Over 2.5-130
Under 2.5+110

Real Madrid is almost always listed as a fave, and Los Blancos opened at -125 odds in this one. As you can notice, the bookies would be surprised if Betis pull off and upset, setting +300 odds on the hosts to win and on a draw as well.

The Big Green are +105 dogs to stay undefeated in their first meeting with Los Blancos this term, according to Bovada Sportsbook. There are some tempting +210 odds on Real Madrid to cover a 1.5-goal spread, too.

Betis vs. Real Madrid Preview

Betis beat Alaves 1-0 on the road in their opening game of the 2020-21 La Liga season thanks to Cristian Tello’s goal in the dying moments of the second half. That was a huge boost for the Big Green, and they easily outlasted Valladolid 2-0 as -125 home favorites last weekend.

The Big Green took 16 shots towards Valladolid’s goalie and scored both goals early in the second half. They controlled the game for all 90 minutes, keeping the ball in possession for 56 percent of the time and allowing their rivals to take just two shots on target.

On the other side, Los Blancos’ opener was postponed, so the reigning champs took the field for the first time last weekend in a 0-0 tie at Real Sociedad. They were listed as -140 favorites to win and had the ball on their feet for 68 percent of the time, but it wasn’t enough for a victory.

Los Blancos took 16 shots and had 11 corner kicks, creating a few excellent scoring opportunities. They couldn’t find the way through, and Zinedine Zidane is certainly concerned with his team’s inefficiency. Los Blancos head coach continues to lean on Karim Benzema as a lead striker in a 4-5-1 formation.

Betis vs. Real Madrid Betting Pick

Betis is always a tough rival to beat when playing at home. The Big Green scored in each of their last five home encounters with Los Blancos. Also, Betis failed to find the net just once in their previous nine home games against Real Madrid.

I’m looking for this trend to continue this Saturday. The hosts haven’t conceded in two outings, while the visitors are looking for their first goal of the season, and that should change, considering the strength of these two rivals.

Seven of Los Blancos’ last eight road games saw both teams scoring including their 2-1 defeat at Betis from the previous season. The Big Green are undefeated in three straight matchups with Los Blancos, tallying a couple of wins in the process.

Pick
  • Both Teams to Score YES
    -143
