French league 1 2016/2017 Predictions

The French Ligue 1 had a big twist this season with overwhelming favorites PSG not winning and Monaco taking it with their young team. Next season as a result will be a great contest to watch and I am expecting a good amount of value on making early bets on them now.

The first prediction is in regards to the team that is going to win the league next season and I think that Monaco will be able to repeat this feat. While a lot of the players are expecting Monaco to be greatly weakened this summer and their stars all to be gone, this team has a good system in place and some of the younger players will still be around in the lovely Monte Carlo next season. In addition to that, I think PSG is a very inconsistent side and I think they will once again focus on the Champions League meaning that their focus may not be on winning the league.

Cavani to be the top goal scorer. The Uruguayan is the main man for PSG and he will have less competition with Mbappe possibly moving and Lacazette definitely leaving Lyon for a side outside of France. This means that the competition is less and with such good service with Di Maria, Lucas and Verratti in the side, he will get tons of goal scoring opportunities. This bet is already one that has a lot of value but with the Transfer market not yet begun, it will only get better so perhaps waiting till the end of summer for this bet might have some merit to it.
