While the English Premier League is easily the most recognizable European Soccer League in the United State, it is far from the only one and arguably not even the best the world’s sport has to offer. According to the UEFA Coefficient, Spain’s La Liga is the top league in the world.
The problem with La Liga, however, is that it is very top heavy. Real Madrid and Barcelona (and more recently Athletico Madrid) have completely set themselves apart from the rest of the competition, which regularly leads to extremely high betting lines throughout the season.
When two of these three teams meet up, it’s a must-see game. This weekend, Barcelona is a +125 favorite against Athletic Madrid (+240) in what should be one of the better matchups of the season. But that uneven field also leads to big betting lines. This online sportsbook lists Real Madrid as a big -350 favorite against Espanyol – a 9:1 underdog, and those types of big odds runs rampant throughout the year.
