French Ligue 1: Best Bets – Round 18 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 11:48 PM (France)
I’m backing Lille, Marseille and Monaco all to win this weekend. But with plenty of exciting markets to take advantage of, I've found some very profitable bets. Can anyone stop PSG from running away with yet another Ligue 1 title? Let’s take a look at this week’s best bets for the French top-flight.
Lille vs. Montpellier – 12/13/19
Lille have won their last three league games and will be looking to keep the pressure on Marseille and PSG with a win over Montpellier on Friday. Montpellier are without a win in two and have slipped down to tenth in the table. Despite Lille being in third, there are only four points separating the two teams. The top-half of Ligue 1 is extremely congested at the moment, so this is probably why the odds for a Lille win are so high. Lille are a far stronger than Montpellier, so I’m going with the home win in this fixture.
Pick: Lille to Win – 1.83
Metz vs. Marseille – 12/14/19
A run of six straight victories has seen Marseille move six points clear of third-place Lille. Andre Villas-Boas' side are in excellent form at the moment, and have lost the same amount of games (3) as league-leaders PSG. On the other side of the coin, Metz are without a win in five and have only managed to register three league wins all season. Unsurprisingly, they have one of the worst defensive records in the division. Marseille are the favorites at 1.73, but I can see them winning both halves against Metz.
Pick: Marseille to Win Half Time/Full Time – 3.00
Angers vs. Monaco – 12/14/19
Angers have lost their last three league games and are beginning to slip away after a promising start to the season. A record of W7/D3/L7 underlines their consistency issues. In contrast, Monaco are a team on the up following three wins in their last five matches. Monaco don’t have any problems in attack, but they have conceded a lot of goals this term. They are the in-form side in this fixture, so I’m backing the away team to come away with the points. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if both teams get on the scoresheet.
Pick: Monaco to Win and Both Teams to Score – 3.98
