The La Liga race has been a three-team race for most of the season and it remains that was with only a handful of matches left. Atletico Madrid is in the league lead with a one-point lead over Barcelona, who have the best betting odds to win, and a three-point lead over Real Madrid.
One of the main reasons Barca may be THE team to beat is that they do not have to face Real Madrid and they end the season at Camp Nou playing Atletico.
Bet365 has La Liga outright winner odds with Barcelona at 125 followed by Real Madrid at +250 and Atletico at +333.
Since their big upset loss to Real Valladolid Barcelona has reeled off five straight league wins including a HUGE 4-3 win on the road against Real Madrid in El Classico.
Barca only has two more matches in the month their first one facing 15th place side Granada on the road and a dangerous match against seventh place side Villarreal, also on the road. Barca already beat Granada badly this season, 4-0 at home, and is big road La Liga betting favorites away from Camp Nou. Bet365 has them posted at -450 with Granada at +1000 and a draw line of +550.
Real’s both matches in April should be wins, as they are at home for each and face Almeria, who is currently in the relegation zone, and 16th place Osasuna. Odds makers have them as massive favorites in their next match at -1600 with Almeria at +2500 and a draw line of +1200. Earlier this season Almeria was embarrassed at home losing to Real 5-0.
Atletico plays three matches this month with their toughest being the last one facing eighth place side Valencia on the road. In their next two matches they are big betting favorites against Getafe and Elche, who are both out of the top 13 in the league. Atletico is riding a six match-winning streak and they have the fewest losses in the league.
Atletico Madrid is hanging onto the fourth spot and that coveted automatic Champions League berth. They have a five-point lead over Sevilla, who they face at home at the end of the month.
