We are halfway there to the La Liga 2022/2023 campaign and the odds are pretty clear as to which teams are the favourites, as the Classico battle starts to heat up. Barcelona is first in the La Liga standings and the La Liga winner odds list. Blaugrana is currently on 1.30, investing much in their solid defence (they have only conceded 7 goals). Gavi and Pedri continue to cooperate easily in the midfield and the young core learns much from players such as Robert Lewandowski.
Real Madrid is second in the title odds list at 3.50. Merengues are currently five points behind Barcelona, but their many ups and downs won’t let them return to the top of the table. Since the restart of the season, they lost to Villarreal and brought a concerning goalless draw against Real Sociedad. The defensive results worry many fans, as the team has already seen the ball 16 times in its net.
There is already a huge gap between the two serious title contenders and the other teams of the league, according to the bookies. Real Sociedad is at 151.00, proving that their season is something to brag about. The team dreams of a Champions League spot and its unbeaten record (since October) could turn that dream into reality. Sorloth made everyone on the team forget Alexander Isak pretty fast.
Atletico Madrid still fights for a top-four spot, but Diego Simeone seems unable to find stability and provide motivation to his players. Atletico’s odds stand at 251.00, according to the best football betting sites, a number that is too high for a team that won the championship a couple of years ago. Their 31 points in 18 games are one of the lowest tallies in Simeone’s era. The Argentinian should ensure that there will be no more frustration.
The last meaningful mention is Athletic Bilbao at 501.00. The new year is not so friendly for Bilbao, a team that was flying before the World Cup, being a valuable candidate for the top four. Challenging this part of the standings should be the main goal, not only for them but also for the Yellow Submarine, Villarreal, its odds being at 751.00.
