There will be one La Liga game on Friday between Athletico Madrid and Mallorca. Third place Athletico hasn’t lost since league play resumed in June and has tallied four wins and two ties. DraftKings Sportsbook has the betting splits for the match available, and we go over the numbers here.

Athletico is the favorite at -335 and accounts for 98 percent of the handle. It also commands 98 percent of the total bets. While it doesn’t have the most explosive offense, it has given up the second fewest goals (25) in La Liga. It claimed a 2-0 victory against Mallorca earlier this year and has been playing at a very high level.

Mallorca is a longshot at +1000 and was winless for five games before crushing Celta Vigo 5-1 in its last outing. It’s given up more goals (56) than any team in La Liga this season. It’s not surprising that Mallorca has a measly 1 percent of the handle and 2 percent of the total bets. Bets on a tie account for a mere 1 percent of the handle.
