Is a bet for Real Madrid to become the champion of Spain for this season worth at odds 15? When calculating this you have to consider the fact that right now Real are 10 points behind the first place. Well, it is not that often to see that in January Real Madrid has odds of 15 to win the championship title and this definitely make us thinking of some possible betting moves. At least as an investment with eventual bet closing a few weeks later if a good series of results happen or some mistake made by the leader Barcelona. This is actually the whole point behind making such bet for Real. Not that someone really believes that odds of 15 is enough for such a miracle, namely Barcelona to lose a 10-point lead.
But is this possible? In the next four rounds, Barcelona has easy matches at paper, as in the 25th round they are coming to third in the standings of Sevilla. The upcoming four games with Eibar, Leganes and Valencia at home and Girona away not looking promising for dropping points by the leader. This is something that definitely does not make a possible bet for Real Madrid justified at this point.
If we look at the Real’s schedule, we would see that in the next few rounds they have definitely more difficult matches. The very first match would be against Betis away. Additional trouble for all Real’s fans is the fact that Gareth Bale will miss the next two or three matches, making the winning of the maximum points even harder. Bale will also miss the important match at home against Sevilla, as well as the visit against Espanyol.
All this definitely makes a bet for Real Madrid for the champion of Spain in the season 2018/2019 not a good idea. Even the fact that we are still January and that the odds for such bet is currently 15.
