Las Palmas v Athletic Bilbao: Inconsistency and goals could prove a profitable mix


LA LIGA expert Callum Read (@CallumRead) landed three winners from four bets this weekend. Can he continue his hot streak on Monday night?

I normally try find a tip that is somewhere between 2/1 and 3/1. It gives you, the reader, enough food for thought to bet as either a single or as part of an accumulator.

With a lack of Monday night football on this final Monday before December, I’ve delved into the betting markets to bring you a bet that is higher than the usual odds I tip.

Inconsistent Form

Both sides come into this fixture with mixed form – Las Palmas have won just once in their last five games, drawing twice, while Athletic Bilbao have two wins, two draws and one loss in their last five fixtures.

The same story applies for Las Palmas at the Estadio Gran Canaria – they are yet to lose in front of their own fans, however, they’ve drawn 50% of their home outings. These stalemates have come against, Real Madrid, Espanyol and Celta Vigo.

Ernesto Valverde’s visitors haven’t won away in their last three matches, drawing on their last trip against Espanyol.

Both sides score goals

Look, they may be two very inconsistent sides, but one thing remains constant – goals.

Las Palmas are averaging three goals per-game at home. Meanwhile, the Basque guests 2.10 goals per-game on the road with Arirz Aduriz refusing to age for the travellers – the 35-year-old has already scored five times this season.

Quique Setien’s hosts get goals from a variety of players – Kevin-Prince Boateng has four, while Jonathan Viera and Tana both have three a piece.

This match promises to be an attacking, exciting Monday night fixture, and with both teams promising goals, but struggling to see games out – I like the look of Draw and Both Teams to Score at 7/2 with BetVictor. This is my longest single tip to date for WeLoveBetting, the stats and both teams inconsistency certainly support it. Be Lucky.
