Levante vs. Alaves – La Liga, November 8, 2020
The Spanish La Liga betting action continues Sunday, November 8, so I’m bringing you the best Levante vs. Alaves pick and tips along with the latest team news and odds update.
These two foes will battle against the relegation this term, and Sunday’s game has a lot on the table for each side even though it’s still early in the season.
Levante vs. Alaves Odds
While Alaves is sitting at the 14th spot of the La Liga Standings with eight points out of eight contests, Levante is 18th with five points out of seven games. The hosts are slight favorites to beat Alaves, but you never know in games like this one.
As you can notice, there are identical +240 odds on both visitors to win and draw, telling you that this game can easily go three ways. Alaves is listed at -150 to avoid a loss on Bovada.
Levante vs. Alaves Preview
Levante has been playing in a poor form lately. The Frogs are winless in five straight outings, recording three losses and a couple of draws in the process.
They’ve met some good teams since a 3-1 road victory at Osasuna in Matchday 3. The Frogs have earned just a point in two home games this season, playing a 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo and suffering a 2-0 defeat to the reigning champs Real Madrid.
Last weekend, the Frogs drew at Granada, 1-1. They were down 1-0 since the eighth minute of the first half, but the Frogs dominated the clash in the last 75 minutes, as Granada’s midfielder Maxime Gonalons was sent off.
Strikers Roger Marti and Jose Luis Morales combined for five goals and two assists for Levante this term. The Frogs desperately need more from playmaker Enis Bardhi, who’s recorded just one assist through seven La Liga appearances.
Levante will miss a couple of midfielders Sunday, as both Nikola Vukcevic and Cheick Doukoure are sidelined with injuries. On the other side, Alaves cannot count on midfielder Pere Pons due to a foot injury.
Alaves dropped three of its first four games this season along with a goalless draw against Getafe at home. El Glorioso bounced back and won two of their previous four La Liga games while staying unbeaten against the mighty Barcelona side this past weekend.
Despite a red card in the 62nd minute, Alaves withstood the pressure and earned a 1-1 draw as massive home underdogs.
El Glorioso has scored just six goals through their first eight games, and six different players have found the net. They’ve allowed nine goals in a return, keeping the net intact on three occasions.
Levante vs. Alaves Pick
Levante to Win+120
Alaves has been playing solid defense at home, but they allowed five goals in three road outings, suffering a couple of losses at Granada 2-1 and Villareal 3-1. El Glorioso beat Valladolid 2-0 in their previous road contest, but the hosts played with 10 men for 70 minutes.
On the other side, Levante created a lot of scoring opportunities in its last two games but earned just a pair of draws in the process. The Frogs failed to keep their net intact this season and will be fired up to snap that skid against Alaves’ barren offense.
Therefore, I’m backing the hosts to win at some tempting odds. It’s a tricky wager, but I like the value. Alaves has been pretty lucky to earn four points in the last two rounds, while Levante desperately needs a victory.
Levante lost three straight games to Alaves without scoring a single goal. That’s not an encouraging trend, but it’s certainly another big motive for the hosts to win.
