French Ligue 1: Best Bets – Round 9 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 3:29 PM (France)
PSG will be looking to widen the gap at the top of the table as second-place Angers head to the capital. Can Nantes make it 5 wins in 6 games? And will anything separate evenly matched Rennes and Reims?
Let’s get stuck into the best bets for Round 9 of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 campaign.
PSG vs. Angers – 10/5/19
PSG are top of Ligue 1 while Angers are 2 points behind in 2nd place. Angers have undoubtedly been the surprise package in the French top-flight this season, so I can see PSG wanting to lay down a marker and put them in their place on Saturday. Angers have won 5 of their 8 matches so far but have conceded 11 goals in the process. On the other hand, PSG have 6 wins and have only conceded 4 times. With star strikers Neymar and Mbappe back firing, I think PSG will claim a high-scoring win against Angers.
Pick: PSG to Win and Over 3.5 Goals – 2.10
Nantes vs. Nice – 10/5/19
Nantes are currently 3rd in Ligue 1, 3 points clear of sixth-place Nice. Nice have scored 12 goals in 8 league games this season but have also conceded the same amount at the other end of the pitch. Nantes have only let in 5 league goals so far, while finding the back of the net just 8 times. Nantes are the in-form side in this clash having won 4 of their last 5 games. This likely be a low-scoring home win and Nantes are 1.91 to claim the victory. You can boost the odds by adding under 3.5 goals to your bet.
Pick: Nates to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – 2.39
Rennes vs. Stade Reims - 10/6/19
There is very little between these two teams right now. Rennes are 8th with 12 points while Reims are 9th on 11 points. Both teams have recorded 3 wins this season and have been involved in very low-scoring matches. Rennes have scored 8, while Reims have 7 goals to their name. Both defenses have been tight, with Rennes conceding 6 and Reims just 4. Everything is pointing towards this match ending in a draw so I'm surprised the bookies are offering such a high price. Jump on this now before Round 9 gets underway!
Pick: The Draw – 3.10
