La Liga Betting at Bet UK
La Liga has always been home to some of the biggest teams and players on the planet, which makes La Liga betting all the more popular. At the top of the league, Barcelona and Real Madrid are notoriously successful. But even further down the league, you’ll find some of the most competitive fixtures in Europe, with a host of exciting teams and players. Bet UK provides La Liga odds and in play betting for all Spanish matches.
Bet UK’s La Liga Betting Markets
Just like with all of Bet UK’s football betting, there is a wide variety of online betting markets available for La Liga.
Bet UK has a huge range of football betting markets available for the Bundesliga. For pre match, you can bet on traditional markets such as first goalscorer, over/under on goals, or the correct score. As soon as the match begins, our in play Bundesliga markets open up and provide a whole new range of markets. Place a bet on the next 15 minutes, the team to score next or use dynamically changing odds to get a good price on a winner. With our in play Visualisation Centre, you’ll be brought even closer to the action as you can follow the play with every pass. As well as betting markets for every match, we also offer outright Bundesliga betting markets ahead of every season.
La Liga Odds: Outright Winner
The biggest betting market in Spanish football is the winner of the La Liga, the outright winner is defined by the team who finishes the season at the top of the table. As one of the biggest leagues in professional football, betting odds typically favour two of the biggest teams in the world, Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, in recent years, La Liga odds have also favoured Atletico Madrid, who have made some shrewd moves in the transfer window and built themselves up in the Spanish top flight. After these three teams, Spanish football has a sharp decline with the likes of Sevilla, Villarreal and Real Betis looking to close the gap but struggling to do so, following this the gap between the best teams and the worst teams is significantly higher.
La Liga Odds: Top Goalscorer
Following the departures of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the chances of players grabbing the top goalscorer award in the Spanish league have sky-rocketed. Robert Lewandowski took the award off Karim Benzema last season and the latter has since moved to Saudi Arabia and has been temporarily replaced by Joselu, who finished third in the top goalscorer award last season. It looks like that Lewandowski will win the accolade again this season but if Joselu starts up-front of Real Madrid, he could be found at fantastic odds.
La Liga Odds: Relegation
When betting on relegation, Spanish football is particularly interesting, at the end of the 2022/23 season, 3 points separated 13th and 18th, meaning a significant number of teams were at risk of relegation going into the final month of the season. It's rare that sports betting provides such intriguing relegation battles but La Liga looks to offer these opportunities more regularly than other leagues.
Why La Liga Betting has changed for the better
For a long time, La Liga has been dominated by two teams due to the sheer brilliance of the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Barcelona and Real Madrid are still excellent teams without them, just look at Madrid's Champions League runs. However, we are starting to see a new era in La Liga, with decreasing betting odds every year, it may not come as a surprise to many if we see a new team emerge as the outright winner of the tournament. The best odds will always go to the two biggest teams and you'll never find odds for them to be relegated but the likes of Real Sociedad have risen fantastically in recent years, with the likes of Alexander Sorloth and Mikel Merino coming through as top talents and they're no longer in the underdogs in competitions.
Does this mean that the competition gets better in comparison to others? Historically, in sport, this tells us this isn't necessarily the case, it is likely that Barca and Madrid will still end up dominating the division in the end but we are reaching a period that could define La Liga for the foreseeable future and we'll hopefully see a couple of shock outright winners for the Spanish La Liga in that time.
Spanish La Liga Betting Tips and Odds
At the top of the table, it might seem like there is no need to research any sides before picking a result. Barcelona and Real Madrid are favourites to win almost every match they play, in both La Liga and throughout Europe. But, in Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia, there are still plenty of chances for the big two to slip up. Don’t always be fooled into backing a recognisable name however. The likes of Villareal, Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao have all struggled at some point in the last 3 years. With the bottom 18 places seemingly up for grabs, it’s always worth doing your research before placing any La Liga bets. If you're betting on La Liga, it's always worth looking at the BTTS markets.

Terminology for betting on La Liga
Half Time/Full Time Betting - Half Time/Full Time lets you not only bet on the result after 90 minutes, but also the result at half time. So, if you think a team might start slowly but come back to win in the second half, you can bet against them at Half Time, but then back them at Full Time. On the other hand, if you think a team can dominate from start to finish, then you can back them to be winning at both 45 and 90 minutes.
Scorecast - A Scorecast is one of the tougher betting markets to predict. In order to win, you’ll have to choose the first goalscorer in the game, as well as correctly predicting the full time score. The benefit of backing a scorecast is that you’ll often find a huge increase in potential odds, as opposed to just backing a first goalscorer or final score.
In Play Betting - In play betting is one of the most popular forms of online sports betting. In play betting lets you place a bet on a match that is currently taking place. So, if you are watching a match and you fancy the new substitute to make an instant impact, you can place a bet on him to score the next goal. There are 100s of in play betting markets for La Liga betting to choose from for every match.
