Las Palmas vs Barcelona prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for La Liga match

After winning just two of their past five La Liga outings, Barcelona have slipped away from the title race at present in Spain’s top-flight. 

Xavi’s side now sit seven points off the pace set by fierce rivals Real Madrid and with a trip to face Las Palmas up next, only three more points will do for the Catalan club. 

That said, the home side from the Canary Islands are flying this campaign after their promotion from the second tier last term. 

They head into this first matchday of 2024 sat in 10th spot and just five points shy of the final European qualification. The home side will now look to claim a famous scalp as they look to continue their impressive campaign.

Las Palmas vs Barcelona best bet

  • Pick: Under 2.5 goals scored
  • Odds: +110 (DraftKings)

Although three of Barcelona’s last four competitive matches have cleared the 2.5 goals scored, we’re expecting a lower scoring affair in this match away to Las Palmas. 

As mentioned before, the hosts are a strong proposition and with the travel included to the Canary Islands which will prove another negative, Barcelona likely won’t run away with the victory here. 

The Catalan side are also struggling defensively of late, failing to keep a clean sheet in four straight matches which could bring this bet tumbling down, but at +110 with DraftKings, picking the under 2.5 goals scored bet could prove to offer some nice value. 

Las Palmas vs Barcelona flier bet

  • Pick: Raphinha to score anytime
  • Odds: +225 (DraftKings)

Since joining the club from Premier League outfit Leeds United back in the summer of 2022, Raphinha has found it tough to deliver for Barcelona at the highest level.

Through 67 matches across all competitions with his new Spanish side, he’s netted just 13 goals so picking him to score here may look like a strange choice.

But after he scored last time out, he could add to his tally further here given that he’s now netted three La Liga goals so far this campaign.
