After landing another winner on Sunday, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Real Betis’ meeting with Alaves in La Liga on Monday night.
Real Betis vs Alaves (Monday, 20:00)
Real Betis have been a resurgent force under Manuel Pellegrini and they will fancy their chances of landing another three points when they meet Alaves on Monday night.
The Green-and-Whites have won six of their last eight La Liga matches to put themselves firmly in the mix for a European berth.
What’s more, it’s now just one defeat in 13 for Pellegrini’s posse across all competitions, while Alaves arrive in Seville off the back of three straight losses.
Abelardo Fernandez’s strugglers are embroiled in a tightly contested Spanish top-flight relegation scrap and their survival hopes may take another hit against red-hot Betis on Monday night.
As already alluded to, Betis have won six of their last eight league matches, including four of their last five La Liga assignments.
In fact, Betis’ only league defeat since the turn of the year came against in-from Barcelona and that does bode well for an out-of-sorts Alaves team.
The Basque country outfit have lost 13/25 La Liga matches this season – the highest tally in the division – and the confidence-stricken visitors have shipped 10 goals in their last three matches.
With that in mind, I’ll happily side with a home win here, but in order to boost up the price I’ll also back Betis to hit three or more corners on Monday night.
Real Betis are averaging just under five corners per game this season, while Alaves concede north of five flag kicks per 90 minutes on average, not to mention the highflying hosts have hit three or more corners in each of their last eight La Liga outings.
