How To Read La Liga Betting Odds? 

One thing about soccer betting is that the odds are usually presented in one of three ways: American, Decimal, or Fractional. So, if you come across a betting line that looks like this:1/4, 2-1/4, +225, these all represent the same thing – each team’s chances of winning. 

This brief focuses on La Liga Soccer odds and how to read them. 

Getting into the La Liga Odds

La Liga Soccer is the top professional football league in Spain founded in 1928. As of 2020, 20 teams compete each year. The season typically runs from August to May, and each team plays 38 games (19 at home and 19 away). 

The La Liga team each has their specific odds of winning the whole thing, as well as being relegated. When you research La Liga betting odds, you will also come across the terms ‘moneyline‘ and ‘point spreads.’  This simply means the amount of money you will win if your team wins the game.

Let’s say that you want to bet on Barcelona to win the 2020-2021 La Liga championship. The La Liga odds for this might look something like this:

  • Barcelona: -350
  • Real Madrid: +275
  • Atletico Madrid: +1200

What do these numbers mean? The minus sign (-) indicates that Barcelona is the favorite to win, while the plus sign (+) means Real Madrid is the underdog. The number after the sign tells you how much money you need to bet to win $100. 

So, to bet on La Liga to win $100 by betting on Barcelona, you would need to bet $350. If you bet $100 on Real Madrid, you would win $275 if they won the championship. And if you bet on Atletico Madrid, you would win $1200. 

The decimal odds for these same teams would look like this: 

  • Barcelona: 1.29
  • Real Madrid: 3.64
  • Atletico Madrid: 13.00

La Liga Betting Example

Based on the above odds, note that the minus sign (-) indicates that Barcelona is the favorite while the plus sign (+) means Real Madrid is the underdog. The number after the sign tells you how much money you would win if you bet $100. So, if you bet $100 on Barcelona, you would win $129. If you bet $100 on Real Madrid, you would win $364. And if you bet on Atletico Madrid, you would win $1300.
