Understanding La Liga Player Stats
Goals, assists, and saves are the Spanish La Liga player stats most often discussed but there are more worth a look.
The La Liga player who scores the most goals by season’s end is named the Pichichi, or Golden Boot winner. It is helpful to get a sense of which players take penalty kicks for their respective teams for La Liga Golden Boot betting. That’s because PKs can impact the odds and swing the Pichichi race in a certain player’s favor. The Best Player Award is exactly as described, it’s awarded to the player who is judged to have performed the best throughout the course of the season.
The popular statistics are good to know but they aren’t close to being the only necessary ones for soccer betting. Creative midfielders are judged by the big chances they create, while looking at a combination of clean sheets, save percentage and goals conceded minus expected goals allowed can be useful for judging a GK’s impact. For strikers, goals minus expected goals may be a more complete measure than solely looking at goals.
While betting on La Liga, consider keeping up to date on the suspended and injured players. Absences will certainly impact a match and the point spreads will take them into account.Follow us on Twitter
