The standout tie of the round in Ligue 1 is undoubtedly PSG vs. Lyon. However, I believe there are three games that offer better value in the French top flight this weekend. It’s always worth looking at some different markets, especially when the odds are so tasty!
Let’s check out the top picks for this weekend’s Ligue 1 matchups.
Marseille vs. Toulouse – 2/8/20
Marseille come into this game on a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions which has seen them cement second place in the Ligue 1 standings. Marseille secured a comfortable 2-0 away victory at St-Etienne last time out and have been in excellent form. On the other hand, Toulouse are rock bottom of the table having only won three of their 23 league games this term. The Marseille win is at 1.30 but I’m backing the home side to win both halves of this matchup. I can’t see Toulouse getting anything from this game.
Pick: Marseille to Win Half Time/Full Time – 1.91
Rennes vs. Brest – 2/8/20
Rennes are currently third with 12 wins to their name this season. They boast one of the best defensive records in the division but have struggled to score goals in 2019/20. Brest are in fourteenth place but have actually managed to score the same amount of goals as Rennes. However, Brest have conceded a lot more goals. Rennes should win this game but their form has been pretty inconsistent of late. I don’t think we’ll see too many goals in this game, so under 2.5 goals seems like the best bet for this matchup.
Pick: Under 2.5 Goals – 1.80
Montpellier vs. St-Etienne – 2/9/20
Montpellier have moved up to fifth following three wins in their last five games. St-Etienne are fifteenth but just six points separate the two teams in the table. The Ligue 1 standings are extremely congested at the moment, suggesting that most teams are capable of beating one another. However, I can’t ignore the price of 2.00 for both teams to score in this game. Montpellier have scored plenty of goals this season but have also conceded a fair amount. St-Etienne have also been scoring freely but their defensive record is poor.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 2.00
