French Ligue 1: Best Bets – Round 6 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Friday, September 20, 2019 at 11:04 AM (France)
Can the league’s top scorers continue to fire when Lyon host PSG on Sunday? Will Dijon find their first win of the season against Nice? How will high-flying Nantes fare at Strasbourg?
Here are Ligue 1’s best bets for Round 6.
Strasbourg vs. Nantes – 9/20/19
Strasbourg are still without a league win this season after recording 3 draws and 2 defeats. They find themselves down in 18th place after scoring 3 and conceding 6. On the other hand, Nantes have enjoyed a promising start to the season which has seen them pick up 10 points from 5 matches. After losing their opening match, Nantes are unbeaten in 4 and have won their last 3 games. However, their matches have been very low scoring and they have won their last 2 games 1-0. For that reason, Nantes to win and under 3.5 goals makes perfect sense. An away win is already a fantastic price (3.20), but add the other market into the equation and the odds become even better.
Pick: Nantes to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – 3.68
Nice vs. Dijon - 9/21/19
Dijon are rock bottom of Ligue 1 after failing to win any of their 5 league games this season. They have scored just 1 goal in that time and only just recorded their first point of the season thanks to a goalless draw with Nimes in Round 5. Nice are their opponents on Saturday, and they currently sit 6th in the table after winning 3 of their 5 matches this term. Nice are the favorites for this one, but a price of 1.67 doesn’t seem too appealing. However, given Dijon’s poor goal scoring form, betting on Nice to also keep a clean sheet is a good idea, and it boosts the odds significantly.
Pick: Nice to Win and Keep a Clean Sheet – 2.64
Lyon vs. PSG - 9/22/19
The blockbuster tie of the round sees PSG travel to Lyon on Sunday night, and I’m expecting goals galore for this one. These two teams are the league’s top goal scorers. PSG have scored 11 league goals in 5 matches while Lyon have netted 12 in the same time. Despite both team’s goal scoring abilities, they have not looked too convincing in defense, and both sides are more than likely to get on the scoresheet. This bet means that a whole host of results will win you the money. So, whether it’s 2-2, 3-1, or even a bigger final score, this has got you covered.
Pick: Both Teams to Score and Over 3.5 Goals – 2.13
