Odds at DraftKings as of April 15

Real Sociedad vs Sevilla Prediction

Sevilla is comfortably ahead of Real Sociedad in the battle for Champions League qualification places but could strike another blow when the teams meet in San Sebastian on Sunday in La Liga Matchday 33.

In fourth place, Sevilla has 61 points while fifth-place Sociedad has 47 points.

Furthermore, Sevilla has won its last two La Liga fixtures and is unbeaten in six games.

By contrast, Sociedad has drawn their most recent two games and lost twice beforehand.

Therefore, the oddsmakers at DraftKings make Sevilla the favorite for an away win but with an attractive price of +155.

Meanwhile, Sociedad is rated at +185.

Further, the draw is interesting at +225 with kick-off at the Reale Arena at 8:00 am ET.

Sevilla were 3-2 winners in the reverse fixture in January.

Certainly, a win for Sevilla here will all but wrap up a UCL spot.

Sevilla were 4-3 winners at Celta Vigo last time out

But a win is a crucial requirement for Sociedad because sixth-placed Real Betis also have 47 points as those two sides fight it out for the Europa League place.

Sevilla were 4-3 winners at Celta Vigo last time out and before that, scored a 1-0 home win against leaders Atletico Madrid.

Sociedad drew 2-2 at Valencia in their most recent game and, prior to that, were held 1-1 at home by Athletic Bilbao.

On the road, Sevilla has La Liga’s fourth-best statistics with eight wins, three draws and four defeats.

Sociedad is not so strong at home with an eighth-best record of six wins, six draws and three defeats.

To sum up, Sevilla is in the better form here. But the three points are so vital to Sociedad that a draw could be the most likely outcome.

Pick: Draw +225

Alaves vs Huesca Prediction

Huesca has eased its relegation fears with two successive wins.

But they are surprisingly – and invitingly – priced as outsiders in the away game against second-from-bottom Alaves on La Liga Matchday 33.

In the last eight matches, Alaves have lost six and drawn twice. However, DraftKings have them at +148 for a home win against the +205 offered for a Huesca victory.

The draw is rated at +205 with kick-off at 10:15 am ET.

Alaves is in 19th place and drew 0-0 at Athletic Bilbao last time out.

Importantly, though, during their eight-game winless run, they have failed to secure three points at home on three occasions against fellow sides from the bottom half of the table.

Huesca is 16th and improved their hopes of beating relegation with successive recent victories

The draw in Bilbao was their first clean sheet in eight games.

Huesca is 16th and improved their hopes of beating relegation with successive recent victories – by 2-0 at Levante and then 3-1 at home against Elche.

They will fancy their chances of another three points against an Alaves side with the second-worst home record of seven defeats, five draws and only three wins.

On the road, Huesca is not much better, however – with only two wins, six draws and seven defeats.

However, in conclusion, Huesca’s belief will be rightly buoyed by the 1-0 home win they secured in the last meeting of these teams in January.

Pick: Huesca +205

Cadiz vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Cadiz has won its last two matches but is still an outsider at home against Celta Vigo on La Liga Matchday 33.

Indeed, Cadiz has won its most recent two home fixtures while starting as underdogs.

But DraftKings still favor Celta at +106 with Cadiz at an inviting +260 and the draw at +245.

Those odds are certainly influenced by Celta’s 4-0 home defeat of Cadiz in the last meeting in December.

The game kicks off at 12:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Celta is in 10th place and lost 4-3 at home against Sevilla last time out.

However, they won 3-1 in their last away game at struggling Alaves.

In 12th place, Cadiz was a 1-0 winner at Getafe last time out following a 2-1 home defeat of Valencia.

Striker Alvaro Negrado has scored in three of Cadiz’s last four home wins so could be a key player.

In conclusion, Cadiz’s recent form makes their price of +260 for a home win the most attractive proposition here.

Pick: Cadiz +260
