As Juventus’ monopoly in Serie A crumbled in 2020/21, so too did the duopoly of Barcelona and Real Madrid in the La Liga predictions, with Atletico Madrid upsetting the odds to lift the trophy. Atleti are the 7.00 underdogs to retain their trophy, preceeded only by Real (1.20). Sevilla (17.00) are the third iin line to become the winner. Barcelona, which used to be the favourite is now priced at 34.00. Taking all these changes into consideration, we wonder what will happen in 2021/22 season?

Top 3 La Liga Favourites
Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla
Was Atletico’s triumph a surprise last season? Perhaps, but we should never underestimate the brilliance of Diego Simeone as a head coach that gets results. It helps too that he has an outstanding squad of players, with Jan Oblak amongst the best goalkeepers on the planet, Luis Suarez showing Barca what they’re missing and the continued excellence of Koke, Yannick Carrasco and Marcos Llorente.
With no major losses in the transfer window, with the excellent Rodrigo de Paul signed, should Atletico actually be seen a serious threat to the favourite in La Liga title odds - Real Madrid?
Real might disagree, and so too might Sevilla, who were not a million miles behind the leaders last season either. Spanish football’s big guns are experiencing financial woes right now, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we should discount them – they are La Liga favourites for a reason, after all.
Was last season a changing of the guard, or will Barcelona or Real Madrid fire back? In these La Liga betting predictions, we’ll do our best to find out.
As mentioned, Atletico Madrid haven’t lost any players and have gained De Paul together with Suarez and Llorente, they make a pretty dangerous squad.
Primera Division betting tips has changed significantly, among others, due to the fact that 2020/2021 was Lionel Messi's last season in Barcelona. It is a huge loss, however despite the fact that the Catalan giants are no longer among the top three of the favourites in the La Liga winner odds, thanks to such players as Memphis Depay and with their new coach, Xavi, they still may surprise the opponents and should not be totally ignored.
Real Madrid are back where you would expect them to be in the La Liga winner betting odds. Their talismanic head coach, Zinedine Zidane, has left, and he has been replaced by a man that is no stranger to success at the Bernabeu in Carlo Ancelotti.

He has fires to put out. Sergio Ramos, the inspirational captain, has left for PSG, while Raphael Varane looks set to join Manchester United. That leaves an almighty gap in the centre of defence.
David Alaba solves half of that problem, but the jury is out on whether somebody like Nacho or Eder Militao can really fill in alongside to a high standard.
Only one Real player returned a double-figure goal tally last season (Karim Benzema), and while returning loanees like Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard may help on that front, many people claims that Madrid side is far from its best days.
Nevertheless, their results in this season and first position in Spanish La Liga Primera winner odds seem to prove those doubting their skills and form wrong.
Sevilla’s recruitment has not been great either, however they are currently assessed as the third most probable team to become champions this year according to Spanish La Liga odds.
As mentioned, bookmakers suggest that we can rule out Barcelona from our La Liga betting tips. This is definitely not a perfect Barca team by any means, especially without Messi, but with Aguero and Depay it’s not as if they don’t have the firepower to win games.
Atletico Madrid are a side that’s easy to fancy in our La Liga tips, but note this: Luis Suarez scored 33% of their league goals last term. What if he gets injured?
Instead, we’re more inclined to go with the bookmakers, who make Real Madrid their favourite in the Spanish Primera Division odds. .
And, in the end, that might just be enough to separate them from the rest.
The bookmakers, from bet365 and William Hill to Unibet and 1XBET, have reached a consensus in their La Liga betting odds.
They make Real one of the teams most likely to lift the trophy this season, with a best price of 1.20 available in the La Liga betting lines followed by Atletico which has the odds of 7.00 at the moment.
We certainly wouldn’t put you off Atletico at La Liga odds of 17.00 – just be mindful that if Suarez gets injured, that could be curtains for your bet.
