The sharp bet I have for Barcelona vs. Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, August 13 is a team prop bet. My prediction is that Barcelona will win this La Liga match on Saturday, but I have no desire in betting them at -490 moneyline odds (e.g. staking $490 to win $100 profit).
I ended up taking Rayo Vallecano under 0.5 team total games. This was a Positive EV bet from OddsJam. I think Barcelona will be able to keep a clean sheet. My prediction is a 2-0 win for Barcelona.
I played this bet on FanDuel for $200. I think this is the best La Liga bet for Saturday, August 13.
