Bet of the day: Athletic Bilbao to beat Betis by two or more goals
Robbie Purves | 11 December 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Athletic have won four of the last five meetings between the two
- In each of the last four wins over Betis, Bilbao have done it by two goals
- Athletic sit sixth in La Liga and are in the mix for a Champions League berth
Athletic 9/2 to beat Betis by two or more goals
Ernesto Valverde’s Basque outfit are flying high in La Liga, competing for a Champions League place amongst the division’s big boys, with the evergreen Aritz Aduriz still finding the net at 35 years of age.
Athletic Bilbao can come into this Real Betis clash with great confidence, undefeated in this fixture in the previous five encounters – winning four.
However, what makes Coral’s bet of the day even more intriguing, is the scoreline they have done it by.
In each of the last four wins over Betis, Bilbao have done it by two goals and are an enticing 9/2 to beat their Andalusian opponents by two or more this weekend (£/€20 max stake).
Valverde’s visitors to blast Betis
Betis are on a two-game winless stretch and have won just once in five outings. The Seville side are currently occupying the 14th spot of the Spanish top flight, only three points above the bottom three relegation.
After a series of season ending injuries, Pamplona born player Iker Muniain is back in the side and in-form. Combine this with the blistering pace and final ball quality that local boy Inaki Williams possess, and Betis could be in for a thumping.
As a result, be sure to take our bet of the day on Bilbao winning by two or more goals.
