Barcelona vs Betis Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 17 of Spanish Primera Division, Barcelona host Betis at Nou Camp. Read the betting preview below before you place your bets.
Barcelona stand at the top of the table in Primera and they are one of the main candidates to win the title. Atletico Madrid have the same number of points, while Real Madrid have two points less, but Barcelona have one match less. Home side failed to win in their last two La Liga matches against Valencia and La Coruna, so they have to go for a win in this match and keep the 1st position. Meanwhile, FC Barcelona became the FIFA Club World Cup Champions after they beat River Plate 3-0 in the final and now they can focus on Spanish championship. Without any doubt, they are absolute favorites to win this game and every result except their win would be a big surprise. MSN (Messi, Suarez, Neymar) are in the great form, so probably we will see many goals here.
Betis got back in Primera last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation. They are standing at the middle of the table and have real chances to stay in the best Spanish football league. Visitors are not in the great form, they are without win in their last 4 matches in all competitions. If they could take one point against mighty Barcelona that would worth for them as they took all three. They know that they are underdogs in this match and it will be very hard for them to make positive result, but they have nothing to lose and will do their best in order to hit the net.
Interesting fact about previous matches between Barcelona vs Betis is that Betis failed to score against Barcelona only twice in their last 20 matches in all competitions.

Barcelona vs Betis Prediction
FC Barcelona are big favorites to take three points and every other result except their win would be a big surprise. Odds for home are very poor, but I found another valuable betting tip for this game – Both teams to score. It’s a little risky betting option, but I have to try because of very good odd.
