2022-23 La Liga Sleeper Picks

Real Betis

2022-23 La Liga odds: +10,000

Real Betis are on a positive trend following a solid 2021-22 campaign that saw the team finish fifth on the table. They also secured a ticket to the Europa League group stage, together with Real Sociedad. The club lifted the Copa Del Rey final trophy after a victory over Valencia in the process. This ended a nearly two-decade wait for a trophy and marks a second-consecutive finish within the top seven. It sets the foundation for the team that hardly placed in the top ten since the 2004-05 season.

Los Verdiblancos had a testing pre-season, recording two draws and two defeats in four games. They have a few more games before the opening week to apply changes that could propel the team forward. Christian Nørgaard is expected to make his first start after rehab on a knee injury. Bryan Mbeumo will play a crucial role at the end of an impressive pre-season showcase. Moreover, the combination of Juanmi, Fekir, and Canless looks to do damage this season. We’ve seen the trio deliver effective attacking play together, and if the team gels with the players, we expect all kinds of threats coming from Betis.

Athletic Bilbao

2022-23 La Liga odds: +15,000

Athletic Bilbao built toward their La Liga opener against Mallorca with solid results, including a 3-0 victory over Mirandes and a dominating 4-1 win against VfL Bochum. Although the team suffered underwhelming defeats in the pre-season, we’ve seen sparks of life come from the squad leading up to Week 1 of the 2022-23 La Liga campaign.

The club finished eight under Marcelino García Toral’s leadership last season. But with a new manager, Ernesto Valverde at the helm, fans, and bettors anticipate a better finish for the club. Despite the departure of players on free transfers, including Unai Lopez and Unai Nunez, the team looks to give Gorka Guruzeta a more productive role for the team. Inigo Martinez is riddled with questions about a transfer to Barcelona this summer, but if management can convince him to stay put, this lineup can deliver blows that will surprise everyone.


2022-23 La Liga odds: +25,000

Pre-season looks promising for Valencia CF this season. Although they dropped the ball to Real Betis in the Copa del Rey final, the squad produced strong wins against Dortmund and St. Gallen in July. Head coach Gennaro Gattuso has time to make adjustments after a 5-2 defeat in the hands of VfB Stuttgart.

Gattuso’s first year with the club will be a testing one. Due to the club’s financial situation, the Italian needs to work with a tighter budget in the transfer market. Hugo Duro and Samu Castillejo are the two lineup additions this summer. The club hopes to improve on a ninth-place finish in La Liga last season. With fairly impressive results before the campaign, we expect better numbers from the club moving forward. If the transition year goes smoothly, we expect a smoother La Liga run for them this year.
