Take advantage of the edge

Taking advantage of the edge is key to making money this La Liga season. What is the edge, you ask? 

This is where the probability of an event occurring is more likely than the sportsbook’s odds. In other words, our data and analytics suggest a team/player has a much better chance of winning than the sportsbooks think! 

Taking these bets gives you a better chance of being a successful gambler long-term. Of course, the higher the edge, the better. While you’re not guaranteed a W, taking picks with an edge gives you a greater chance of being profitable well into the future. This is super important when trying to be a successful soccer bettor.

You’ll find our best edge picks in the Best Bets section, or in Best Bets within any individual La Liga matchup.

Bet Early

Sportsbooks don’t always have the best read on teams in the first weeks of the La Liga season. This is your golden chance to win early and often. As the season progresses, books get a greater handle and it is harder to find La Liga diamonds in the rough. 

How to identify value early in the season:

  • Do they have momentum from last season? 
  • Where are the team's weaknesses and did they address them?
  • Did they make any important signings?
  • How do they match up against early opponents?

These questions will help you develop a greater understanding and opportunity to exploit the sportsbooks and gain easy profits. 

Bet the double chance 

The double chance is a great way to get into soccer betting if you are a risk averse bettor. Even if you’re a seasoned better this is a great way to get a payout.

The double chance simply means you are betting one of these three options:

  1. Team A to win or draw (FC Barcelona to win/draw)
  2. Team B to win or draw (Real Madrid to win/draw)
  3. Team A OR Team B to win (Barcelona or Real Madrid to win)

Odds for this are usually short given your chance of winning is 66.6% but if you’re looking for a safer way of earning a profit, this could be your favorite La Liga bet.

Back the big favorite 

Usually in sports like the NFL and NBA, we like to avoid laying capital on the huge favorite. La Liga soccer is a little different, it’s much like CFB, Alabama are of course going to beat Toledo. Similarly, Barcelona is likely to beat UD Las Palmas.

This being said, there are moments in every season where a top team is shocked by a dog. However, more often than not, the big favorite gives the dog a whipping.

Remove Biases

This seems the most obvious of all strategies but we are human at the end of the day. We dream of our club pulling off a big rivalry win or Real Madrid losing heavily but it rarely happens this way.

The best bettors remove biases to see the odds for what they are. They consider the factors above, giving them the best chance of winning. 

Now you have all the tools to succeed in La Liga betting this regular season. Make sure you keep check Dimers before every soccer bet for the best odds and sportsbooks. Remember we have exclusive offers when signing up with the most trusted books in the United States
