With three matches in La Liga today, the favorites are being hit hard with most of the early action at DraftKings Sportsbook.
At 1:30 p.m. today Real Sociedad look to get back to the continental conversation against Celta Vigo. Mikel Oyarzabal serves as the 22-year-old talisman for Sociedad, who will pull back ahead of Villareal for a Europa League spot with a victory. La Real has yet to find a win since the restart, with a draw at home to Osasuna followed by losses at Alavés and home to Real Madrid. These are three points they need to keep hope for midweek football next season alive.
And at 4:00 p.m. ET that same Real Madrid takes on a Mallorca side that is three points from safety. Los Blancos need the victory to pull back ahead of Barcelona after their win yesterday in the table, and there is no room for error. Both teams will have 68 points from 31 rounds if Madrid win today, but Zinedine Zidane’s squad retain tie break over their eternal rivals due to head-to-head play. A win in all of their matches from here forward will have them claim their first domestic title in three seasons.
The bettors are heavily backing striker Karim Benzema and Madrid to continue their path towards glory. The Frenchman might be salivating at his prospects today as Mallorca has conceded 50 goals in the league this year, the most of any team.
