Bilbao To Win
Under 2.5 Goals
Looking for La Liga betting tips? You've come to the right place! Football Whispers provides free tips for every round of matches, as well as predictions for the division's outright markets:
La Liga Prediction 1
Cadiz vs Osasuna: Draw @ 21/10 (3.10)
We start our La Liga tips with this clash between Cadiz and Osasuna and our money is going on the draw. Neither side have won any of their respective last five games with each side losing three and drawing two. Notably, those two draws have all come inside the respective last three outings. With that sort of form guide, sitting on the fence is clearly the strongest value wager.
La Liga Prediction 2
Granada vs Athletic Bilbao: Bilbao to win @ 13/20 (1.65)
We now turn our attention to Granada vs Bilbao and you won't convince us that an away win isn't the way to go. Granada are in woeful form having lost six of their last seven games and sitting winless since August. Athletic Bilbao meanwhile arrive here having won four of their last five matches and undefeated in seven. For full transparency, the one factor to note is that Bilbao don't have an amazing record against Granada in recent meetings between the sides; we see the tide turning in that record here though.
La Liga Prediction 3
Rayo Vallecano vs Celta Vigo: Under 2.5 goals @ 3/4 (1.75)
We end our La Liga prediction with a total goals bet and we're backing this match between Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo to go under 2.5 goals. Vallecano have seen three of their last five games go south of the 2.5 marker whilst Celta Vigo have also gone with of the 2.5 goals mark in three of their most recent five outings. As for the head to head record, three of the last four meetings have fallen short of 2.5 goals. All that considered, the odds on offer look like pretty decent value.
And here are the rest of our La Liga predictions on the most recent and upcoming games:

Outright markets and La Liga Odds
La Liga Winner Odds
Barcelona took the La Liga crown last year and they'll be looking to do the same again this year with their big rivals and nearest competitors, Real Madrid, having had a summer of transition. Los Blancos meanwhile will be keen to show that there is more to their team than just the now departed Karim Benzema. Beyond those two Spanish giants, Atletico Madrid will also hope to be in the mix but they'll need to punch well above their weight to really challenge. On that subject, Girona have been the early season surprise and they really are punching above their weight; surely the relative minnows won't maintain their impressive form…
- Real Madrid to win La Liga: 8/11 (1.73)
- FC Barcelona to win La Liga: 6/4 (2.50)
- Atletico Madrid to win La Liga: 9/1 (10.00)
La Liga Top Goalscorer Odds
With Karim Benzema having moved to Saudi Arabia this summer, the La Liga Golden Boot race largely looked like being a one horse race with Robert Lewandowski the standout favourite to lead the scoring charts after bagging a total of 21 last season, which was seven goals ahead of the likes of Enes Unal and Joselu whilst Alvaro Morata and former Barcelona man Antoine Greizmann finished eight strikes behind the former Munich man. That is not how the season has started though and Jude Bellingham has surpassed all expectations since joining Real from Dortmund. He is technically a midfielder…but could he?
- Robert Lewandowski: 4/9 (1.44)
- Antoine Greizmann: 12/1 (13.00)
- Jude Bellingham: 12/1 (13.00)
La Liga Relegation Odds
Last season we waved goodbye to Elche, Espanyol and Valladolid from La Liga as they slipped to relegation with Almeria, Valencia, Getafe and Cadiz avoiding defeat by the skin of their teeth. Each of those four sides will be hoping to avoid a relegation battle this time around whilst Granada, Las Palmas and Alaves, who all earned promotion from Seguna Division last season, will also likely be in and amongst it this year.
- Las Palmas @ 1/1 (2.00)
- Cadiz @ 11/8 (2.38)
- Alaves @ 6/4 (2.50)
- Almeria @ 2/1 (3.00)
Betting Tips: All-Time Top Scorers in La Liga
Lionel Messi leads this category with a total of 474 goals for Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga. It's tough to beat his record, especially for newer players who don't have that many years of experience. The second-best goalscorer is Cristiano Ronaldo, with 311 La Liga goals. His attempt at beating the Messi record was cut short when he moved to play for Juventus in 2018.
The third player in the rankings is Telmo Zarra with two hundred and fifty-one goals while playing for Athletic Bilbao for fifteen seasons in the 1940s and 1950s. The next players in the ranking are as follows:
- Hugo Sánchez
- Alfredo Di Stéfano
- César Rodríguez
- Edmundo Suárez
All of them played for different teams except for Raúl, who is considered one of the best players in Real Madrid History. He left his mark on the La Liga with the impressive amount of two hundred and twenty-eight goals from 1994 to 2010.
What is the Spanish La Liga, and what are its rules?
The full name of the Spanish La Liga is Campeonato Nacional de Liga de Primera División. It's a top professional football league in Spain for men. It was founded over ninety years ago, and twenty teams participate. The teams who get relegated from La Liga compete in Segunda División.

Some big matches include:
- Barcelona vs Real Madrid (El Clasico)

Our Final Conclusion
Bookmakers wouldn't have trouble picking the top teams who would rank high in the 2023/2024 La Liga. It comes down to three choices – Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Atletico Madrid.
We don't expect any other teams to challenge these for the top three spots, but you never know what can happen in football. The other teams we mentioned in the article have ranked high in past seasons but haven't gotten into the top three. We hope you enjoyed our predictions for the 2023/24 Spanish La Liga, and we hope that we are correct. To see more predictions on many other leagues read our article on football betting tips today.
