2017-18 Ligue 1 Preview and Predictions

French Ligue 1 is about to start and as result it is time to make some of the preseason bets. Last season was a great one in France with AS Monaco winning the title. This year it will be interesting to see if Monaco can hold onto their crown or whether PSG can win back the title.

As far as overall winners are concerned, I think PSG will win this year. The side is spending big and with Neymar near arrival at the French capital, it looks unlikely that this team will not be winning. We are getting a decent price on this bet considering how likely it is so I think we should take it.

As far as top goalscorer is concerned, some markets are already allowing you to place a bet on Neymar. Now is the best time to do this since once he arrives at Paris the price of this bet will drop significantly. Neymar is going to be the best player in France by a long way and as a result this bet makes a lot of sense.

Finally, I think Lyon will make the top 3. After Monaco and PSG, there is not a lot of good teams in France and Lyon seem to be playing well. This side is well balanced all around the pitch and as a result they should do well. We are getting a good price on this bet so I think it is the way to go.
