The ninety-first season of the Primera has begun this year, with Spain's top 20 teams competing for victory once again. The reigning winner of the trophy is Atletico, ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona at the finish line. The betting odds for La Liga and the best offers from the bookmakers will be announced in this article as well as betting odds and prices for the Spanish championships from 2021-2022.
La Liga is rightly regarded as the strongest tournament on the European continent, as evidenced by UEFA's top ranking. Four teams in the tournament play in the competition, a 5th team battles it out in La Liga and a 6th club goes to the LKF. Each season, the last three teams in the league leave the top flight and are replaced by Segunda representatives.
La Liga is extremely popular in Russia, which is why all domestic betting houses place bets on the La Liga, with the volume of offers varying from site to site. Mostly users are offered a variety of betting options, from standard forwards and totals, to long-run bets on the tournament's goal scorer or Spain's best player.
Types of betting on La Liga
The bookmakers provide odds on the main events for absolutely every game of the Primera Division. Throughout the season, the site publishes detailed predictions for the Spanish championship from leading experts.
To select a bet on a match, simply click on the team name in the calendar and all the necessary information for the game will be available immediately. The user can read the statistics of past performances, the specifics of the meetings, the starting line-ups as well as the most important news about the teams without any problems. All of this information has a direct influence on the betting process.
Betting on the winner of La Liga
Barcelona are considered the favourites for the new Primera Division. Last season, Koeman was just at the helm of the Catalans and now the Dutchman has the necessary authority to lead his team.
Just behind the Catalans is Real Madrid, with odds of 2.45. With Carlo Ancelotti at the helm, he will have to deal with a restructuring of the club and the departure of the leaders. Madrid will have a tough time in the coming years.
Gold medallist Atletico finished only third with 4.50. After the win, Diego Simeone was given a new contract until 2024 and the team also worked on strengthening the squad. In any case, Atletico are always underestimated and put behind the ever-dominant Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Bets on individual Spanish championship awards
Next, let's take a look at the most interesting positions to fight in according to the bookies for the whole season.
- The top scorer is Karim Benzema, Real Madrid.
With Messi having left Spain, the battle for the title of top goalscorer has become increasingly fierce, with a host of players competing for the title. However, it is French midfielder Benzema who stands out, scoring 23 goals last season. Karim plays at the top of the pecking order at Real Madrid at the moment and all attacks will come through him.
- Gold glove: Jan Oblak, Atletico.
The Slovene is currently unbeaten, with Oblak having secured his place as the league's best goalkeeper for years to come, so it's unlikely that anyone will be able to shake the Matraznik goalkeeper's position.
- MVP: Casemiro, Real Madrid.
There is also a lot of competition for the MVP spot, but Casemiro is expected to make a fundamental impact on the game, both in the centre and near the penalty box. So if the Brazilian plays his best, the award will go to him.
- Best young player: Pedri, Barcelona.
Pedri was quick to earn a place at Barcelona and at 18, the lad can be considered one of the team's leaders. On top of that, Pedri is extremely hard-working and, after last season, he refused to take a leave of absence to start training straight away. So the boy's potential is enormous.
