There are several different betting types you can explore, and several teams worth punting on. While Real Madrid has won the league a record 33 Times, Barcelona are firm favourites, and it makes sense to place a League Winner Bet on Barcelona.
That being said, Real Madrid dug deep in the Summer Transfer Window, and they will have a much better Second Half of the 2019/20 La Liga Season. Real Madrid comes with higher odds of 5/2, and you might reap higher profits if you place a League Winner Bet on Real Madrid.
According to La Liga Stats, given that Barcelona have won the La Liga in the past two seasons, placing a League Winner without the Champion Bet on Real Madrid might be a wise move as well.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have a star-studded attack, and they are likely to score 3 or more goals in a match against weaker oppositions. You could place an Over 3.5 Goals Bet, or an Over 4.5 Goals Bet on such matches, after going through the fixture history, injury news, and team form, as the likelihood of a large score line is high. At the time of writing, according to La Liga Stats, Barcelona score an average of 2.61 Goals per Game, and Real Madrid score 1.83 Goals per Game.

You can place a Half Time Result Bet as well.

If there ever comes about a situation in which two or more teams have the same number of points at the end of the season, the La Liga Committee makes use of the below mentioned criteria to determine a winner, in the following order of precedence –
- Goal Difference
- Goals Scored
- Head-to-Head Points
- Head-to-Head Goal Difference
- Head-to-Head Away Goals Scored
- Away Goals Scored.
After the application of the above mentioned criteria, if teams still cannot be separated, playoffs ensue to determine the winner of the competition, or the position in question.
4 Teams that finish in the Top 4 of the La Liga standings, automatically qualify for the Champions League.

If the winner of the Copa del Rey finishes in the Top 5 of La Liga, then the 6th Placed Team automatically qualifies for the Europa League, while the 7th Placed Team must participate in the Europa League’s 2nd Qualifying Round. If not, then the 6th Placed Team participates in the 2nd Qualifying Round of the Europa League.
