French Ligue 1: Best Bets – Round 10 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 1:41 PM (France)
Domestic soccer returns following the international break, and the French top-flight offers no shortage of exciting betting opportunities.
Out of form Nice welcome PSG on Friday, while Dijon travel to fellow strugglers Lyon on Saturday. In Sunday’s pick, high-flying Nantes visit Metz, who currently sit bottom of the table.
Here are the best bets for Ligue 1 2019/20 Round 10.
Nice vs. PSG – 10/18/19
After a promising start to the season, Nice have won just 1 of their last 5 league games. They have conceded a total of 13 goals in 9 Ligue 1 matches this term, leaving them with a goal difference of –1. On the other hand, PSG are the league’s top scorers with 17 goals so far. Given the team’s contrasting goal-scoring records, I’m backing PSG to win this match comfortably. The fact that the Paris club is away from home in this fixture also makes the odds far more attractive.
Pick: PSG to Win and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.94
Lyon vs. Dijon - 10/19/19
Lyon sit just 1 point ahead of Dijon in the table. Dijon were not expected to take Ligue 1 by storm this season, but Lyon should be a lot higher up the table by now. Lyon have scored more goals than 10 of the teams above them in the table, but have also conceded at an average of 1 goal per game. The home side should have enough firepower to win this match, but given their poor defensive record, Dijon could well get on the scoresheet in the process.
Pick: Lyon to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.47
Metz vs. Nantes – 10/20/19
Metz currently sit rock bottom of Ligue 1 having won only 2 of their 9 games this season. They have conceded 14 goals while scoring just 8 in reply, leaving them with a goal difference of –6. Nantes are flying high at the other end of the table and find themselves 2 points behind first-place PSG. Nantes have conceded just 5 times this season and have won 4 of their last 5 league games. The bookies are offering a fantastic price for an away win here, so jump on this one quickly!
Pick: Nantes to Win – 2.70
