La Liga Predictions 2022/2023: Odds, Betting Tips & Best Bets

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

Getafe vs Osasuna: Under 2.5 goals @ 1/2 (1.50)

We kick off our La Liga predictions with an under 2.5 goals tip as Getafe and Osasuna face off. Both teams have averaged under that 2.5 goal mark across the respective 36 league games they've played this season. Recent form supports a low scoring game too. Osasuna have been a tad more high scoring with just two of their last five games going under 2.5 goals but their average in that time only sits narrowly above the 2.5 mark. Getafe's form more than makes up for the shortfall; they've seen each of their last five games go south of 2.5 goals with an average of just 1.2 goals. The last eight head to head games have all gone under 2.5 goals too.

Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT, 28/05/23

La Liga Prediction 2

Valencia vs Espanyol: Espanyol to win @ 13/5 (3.60)

Espanyol won their last away game and earned a draw against Atletico Madrid in midweek in dramatic fashion as they battled back from three goals down. We fancy them to get a result here too. Valencia have lost two of their last five games – including their last outing – and arrive into this game amidst a cloud after their fans hounded Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior with racist abuse. La Liga have taken unprecedented action against them as a result and they will be under a partial stadium ban for this game. We see that being a key factor here.

Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT, 28/05/23

La Liga Prediction 3

Almeria vs Valladollid: BTTS @ 4/7 (1.57)

We end our La Liga tips by backing Almeria and Valladolid both to score when they lock horns. Almeria have seen three of their last five games feature goals at both ends. Valladolid meanwhile have also seen three of their last five games end with both teams registering on the scoresheet. Finally, you have the head to head record to consider. Two of the last three meetings between these sides – and three of the last five – have seen both teams bag.

Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT, 28/05/23

Outright markets and La Liga Odds

La Liga Winner Odds

Last season Real Madrid practically dominated La Liga from start to finish to win their 35th title, finishing 13 points ahead of their biggest rivals Barcelona. Ancelotti's team also scored the most goals in the league, led by Benzema and Vinicius Jr. who combined for 44 of their 80 goals last season.

Real Madrid was the main favourite to defend the title before the start of the season, but Barcelona is currently leading the race and they are now the favourites. Next to these two teams, the rest of the league is too far behind and the odds reflect that.

  • FC Barcelona to win La Liga: 1/200 (1.01)
  • Real Madrid to win La Liga: 25/1 (26.00)
  • Atletico Madrid to win La Liga: 100/1 (101.00)

La Liga Top Goalscorer Odds

As we already mentioned, Benzema and Vinicius Jr. combined for 44 goals in La Liga last season, claiming two of the top three spots on the list of top scorers. Of course, Benzema won the Golden Boot with 27 goals, nine more than his closest rival Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.

Vinicius Jr. was third with 17 goals, same as Raul de Tomas from Espanyol. Juanmi from Real Betis and Enes Unal finished the season with 16 goals each.

So, Karim Benzema was the favourite once again after his fantastic couple of seasons, but Robert Lewandowski was right behind him. Now, Lewandowski seems like the runaway candidate for the Golden Boot, which would be his sixth time in a row to be the top goalscorer in his league after he did it for five years straight in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.

  • Robert Lewandowski: 1/5 (1.20)
  • Karim Benzema: 10/3 (4.33)
  • Enes Unal: 25/1 (26.00)

La Liga Relegation Odds

We saw Alaves, Levante, and Granada finish last season as the last three teams in La Liga standings, which means that we won't be seeing them in the top flight this season.

Replacing them, Girona, Almeria, and Real Valladolid have been promoted from Segunda and they will try to avoid getting back down right away. However, right now, it is Elche who seems like the main candidate to go down.

  • Espanyol: 8/13 (1.62)
  • Almeria: 5/4 (2.25)
  • Valencia: 7/4 (2.75)
  • Cadiz: 2/1 (3.00)
  • Valladolid: 10/3 (4.33)

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
  • Raúl
  • Alfredo Di Stéfano
  • César Rodríguez
  • Quini
  • Pahiño
  • 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.

Of the sixty-two teams that participated in the league since it was created, only nine of them have been crowned champions. The La Liga is usually played from August to May.

Some big matches include:

  • Barcelona vs Real Madrid (El Clasico)
  • Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona
  • Real Madrid vs Valencia
  • Sevilla vs Betis
  • Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid (Madrid Derby)

Our Final Conclusion

Bookmakers wouldn't have trouble picking the top teams who would rank high in the 2022/2023 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 2022/23 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.
