The Spanish soccer league La Liga continues this weekend with Round 34 from Friday, April 30, to Monday, May 3. It was Barcelona who could have finally make a change at the top of the table, but they failed to win. As a result, Atletico Madrid are still on top with two points ahead of both Barca and Real Madrid. In fourth are Sevilla, followed by Real Sociedad, and Betis, who currently sit in the sixth position.
In Round 34, second-placed Real Madrid will attempt to jump ahead of Atletico as they host Osasuna on Saturday, May 1. The next day, Sunday, May 2, the Blaugrana travel to Spain's southeastern coast to face Valencia.
This round provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some sports betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these La Liga matchups.
Real Madrid vs Osasuna betting picks (Saturday, May 1)
Depending on Atletico Madrid's clash with Elche away, this might be a "do or die" matchup for Real Madrid. If they win, and Atleti lose, the Whites will move on top of La Liga, at least until Sunday. Whatever happens, they must stay close to their city rivals, and away from their arch-rivals Barcelona, if they want to repeat their 2019-20 La Liga success.
However, Zinedine Zidane and the company's Achilles heel this season have been none other but the lower positioned clubs. Madrid have failed to win against Elche, Levante, Real Sociedad, Getafe, Betis, and that's only their negative record in 2021. In addition, there is also the first clash against Osasuna on January 9. On the other hand, in their most recent games, Osasuna have beaten clubs such as Valencia and Villarreal. As a result, betting that this game ends in a 1-1 draw could be a sure bet, at +850, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $850. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Karim Benzema, as he is at +220 to be the first one to score.
Valencia vs Barcelona betting picks (Sunday, May 2)
Barcelona had the chance of their lives to overtake Atletico and Real Madrid in Round 34, but they succumbed to the pressure and suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat to Granada. This time, they will have another chance, except they don't have any other choice but to win on Sunday if the Blaugrana want to keep fighting for the La Liga title.
Of course, it won't be easy with their head coach Ronald Koeman being ruled out of the matchup after receiving a red card in the Granada loss. With the Bats being far from their prestigious years this campaign, and Barcelona having to keep their title hopes alive, this might be the chance for us to see some more goals. Thus, betting that the game ends in a 3-1 win for Barca could be a sure bet, at +850, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $850. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Lionel Messi, as he is at +180 to be the first one to score.
Parlays for these two matchups of La Liga Round 34
A solid parlay bet could be the following: The Real Madrid vs Osasuna matchup to end in a 1-1 draw; Karim Benzema to be the one to open the score; Barcelona to beat Valencia with a final result of 3-1, and Lionel Messi to score the first goal. At $100, the bettor could win up to $2,100.
