Malaga v Granada – Betting Preview & Pick

7 Dec


Malaga v Granada

Last time out, Malaga scored a late leveller to draw 2-2 away to Valencia, while Granada recorded their first La Liga win of the season after defeating terrible travellers Sevilla 2-1.

Granada also won their previous game, in the Copa del Rey, so they’re actually on a two-game winning streak and should have increased confidence as a result. This matched with Malaga’s too short price, which rangers from 4/6 to 4/7, suggests that you shouldn’t be betting on a straight home win.

Giving the away team a + 1 Asian Handicap start has appeal under these circumstances, especially as Granada only lost 1-0 away to Barca a few weeks ago, but then they did lose 3-1 away to Celta and only one bookie offers an 8/11 price with others 4/6 or less, so too short priced to be the pick.

Instead, with four out of Malaga’s last six La Liga games seeing both teams score, along with 4/6 Granada league fixtures and 4/6 head-to-head, BTTS Yes is my recommendation if you want to bet on this Friday night fixture.

If you’re looking for a chancier approach, BTTS and Malaga to win is priced around 11/4.

Recommendation: Both teams to score (19/20)
