Ligue 1 is the highest level of domestic French football and here we take a closer look at the basics of the league, including some history and stats, as well as offering live betting odds comparison for all Ligue 1 games and various outright betting markets.

French football is ranked sixth by UEFA using their hard-to-fathom co-efficients and algorithms, but with sides such as PSG and Monaco improving in Europe they may yet move ahead of Portugal and into fifth. That gives you a good idea of the strength of French football and betting on Ligue 1 is certainly increasingly big business, with all the top bookies and betting sites offering odds on all games, with an ever-increasing range of markets, especially on the biggest matches.

Whether you want to bet on an individual Ligue 1 game or an outright market such as who will win the league overall, our live odds comparison will ensure you get the best available odds for all your bets. This is the simplest way to improve long term profitability and our odds comparison makes getting the best odds quick and easy, with no shopping around at different online bookies needed.

Ligue 1 follows a fairly standard pattern in terms of the season, number of sides and number of games. As of 2015 there are 20 teams in the top flight, with relegation to Ligue 2 for the bottom three. Whichever side finishes top of the table win the league title, naturally enough, whilst there are Champions League and Europa League places up for grabs beneath that.

The league was founded in 1932 and has undergone a number of slight name changes over the years before settling on the current moniker of Ligue 1 in 2002. The most successful side in the history of French football are relative minnows St-Etienne, who dominated in the 1960s and 1970s but last claimed outright success back in 1981. In more recent times Marseille (during the 1990s), Lyon (during the 2000s) and most recently PSG have been the top sides but if you fancy a bet on who will win Ligue 1, the betting odds, naturally enough, reflect the strength of the top French sides.

Ligue 1 runs from August to May, as with most top European leagues and, as with almost all top national leagues, the English Premier League aside, there is a winter break over Christmas.

If you can make do without betting for those few weeks over the festive period then betting on Ligue 1 is a brilliant option for football fans. More and more games are now screened live and with some of the best betting sites around also streaming Ligue 1 games live, the opportunity to watch the game and have a few bets – both pre-match and in-play – is well worth taking up.

We’ll occasionally offer up betting tips for the biggest Ligue 1 games so for those, and of course the best available odds, be sure to bookmark this page and come back soon.
