This Friday evening (3 May) Sevilla host Leganes knowing that a win will take them into the top four – temporarily, at least. On the Sunday, Valencia travel to take on Huesca while Athletic Bilbao are at Valladolid.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Sevilla and Leganes. Sevilla have lost two of their last three games and have dropped down to fifth, although they are still level on points with Getafe in fourth – Sevilla are priced at 2.00 to finish the season in the top four.
Leganes, by way of comparison, are without a win in their last five league outings and struggling. Already free from the threat of relegation, their season looks to be dying out with a whimper.
And it is indeed Sevilla who come into this match as the clear favourites to collect what would be three vital points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.40, while Leganes are out at 8.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.75, according to Oddsshark.
This should be a comfortable evening’s work for the home side. A 3-0 win for Sevilla is priced at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Sevilla win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.30.
Valencia make trip to Huesca
On the Sunday, Huesca host Valencia knowing that they can up their opponents in the race for the top four. Huesca sit bottom of the table, have already been relegated and at this point are playing just for pride.
Valencia, meanwhile, have lost their last two league outings and have dropped down to sixth, three points behind Getafe in fourth. The side is now at 3.75 to finish the season in the top four.
And while the betting is close, it is Valencia who come in as the slight favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.10 while Huesca, despite home advantage, are out at 3.50 to do the same – a draw comes in just under at 3.40.
And we are expecting Valencia to just about get the job done. A narrow, 1-0 win for the away side comes in at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
Athletic have tough test at Valladolid
And finally, Valladolid welcome Athletic Bilbao to town in a match that is almost too tough to call. Valladolid sit third from the bottom in the table, two points from safety with three games left to play – they are priced at just 1.44 to be relegated.
Athletic Bilbao, meanwhile, are still trying to reach the top four, although two defeats in their last five matches has put a dent in those aspirations. They are now all the way out at 51.00 to finish the season in the top four.
And while the betting for this match is very close, it is Athletic who come in as the slight favourites to snatch what could turn out to be three hugely important points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.60, while Valladolid are only slightly higher, at 2.90 – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.40.
But we think that home advantage could well be a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 1-0 win for Valladolid is priced at 7.00, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Valladolid win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 4.33.
