Athletic Bilbao 9/20 to beat Las Palmas in Friday’s La Liga game
Competition: La Liga
Market: Athletic Bilbao to beat Las Palmas
Odds: 9/20 @ Bet365
Spain’s top league is back this weekend with another round of huge games as the competition continues to simmer away nicely. Despite Barcelona having a commanding lead at the top of the table, the rest of the league is exceptionally tight, meaning that a single win can see a side move up the table at an alarming rate. With this in mind, Athletic Bilbao host Las Palmas on Friday.
Athletic Bilbao have been in fairly good form this season and they are looking to put even more space between themselves and the relegation zone. After 22 games they have won six, drawn nine and lost seven, scoring 24 goals and conceding 25 times. In their last five they have drawn three, won once and lost once, which has seen them onto 27 points, 10 clear of the relegation zone. If Bilbao can start to put together a run of wins then they can begin looking at the European places, with sixth-placed Sevilla just six points ahead of them.
Las Palmas have been struggling massively this season and they desperately need to start to win their games. After 22 games they have won five, drawn twice and lost 15, scoring 17 goals and conceding 50 times. In their last five they have won twice and lost three times, which has seen them onto 17 points. The away side are currently three points short of Levante in 17th and safety, but there have been signs of improvement, with Las Palmas winning two of their last three games.
