Slowly but surely, Villarreal has found their place in the top 4 of La Liga, surrounded by much bigger teams. Their current form is nothing short of extraordinary – undefeated after 9 games.
On the other hand, Eibar is one of those teams which can produce anything in this league, and they’ve even returned with a point from Bernabeu this season. Can they stop Villarreal at home?
Eibar vs Villarreal – 30/10/2016
Betting Odds: Eibar 3.00 or 2/1 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 Villarreal 2.50 or 6/4
Mid-table teams like Eibar are the definition of inconsistency in any league. Just look at their most recent 4 games: Win over Sociedad at home, Draw away at Bernabeu, home loss against Osasuna and away draw against Espanyol.
They produce everything from great surprises to horrible performances, which is why we usually avoid betting on them or against them.
A goal difference of +1 is another thing which highlights their balanced season so far. Couple that with the lack of any real objective, and you have a team which is a nightmare for sports betting.
On the other hand, Villarreal is undefeated this season. 16 goals scored, just 5 conceded (2nd best defense in the league) and an overall good form, but with a catch: only one away win this season, and 3 draws.
We’re looking a team which is an absolute beast at home but seems to target avoiding losses away. They haven’t lost to Eibar in the 4 games they’ve already played in La Liga and won 2 of them, while 3 of these games have been “under 2,5 goals” games.
Eibar vs Villarreal Betting Tips
This is the pattern we’re looking for. X2 is the only bet we’re very confident in this game. More than that, over 1,5 goals is a good idea, since Villarreal is usually an “under 2,5 goals” team, while Eibar is an “over” team. These are the only safe ideas we can propose for a game which can truly have any outcome.
