Basketball is a hugely popular sport in France and the LNB Pro A is one of the biggest leagues in Europe, with eighteen teams competing every season and the season began in September.

ASVEL Basket are the even money favourites to win the 2019-20 title after triumphing last season, with the Lyon team having previously won 19 French Championship titles along with 9 French Cups.

Zvezdan Mitrovic’s team finished top of the league table as far as the regular standings were concerned last term, winning 27 of their 34 matches and they were able to carry this superiority into the playoffs.

After comfortably beating Le Mans and Nanterre 92, they fought out a tough final against Monaco and came out as 3-2 winners, although perhaps Monaco will be able to overcome them this time around.

Indeed, Monaco are regarded as the team most likely to topple their Lyon rivals, with the former having reached the final last year by beating Limoges and JDA Dijon, with the team having finished second in the regular standings.

The eighteen teams play each other in a round robin format when it comes to the regular season, with the top eight teams then going through to the playoffs, although the bottom two teams will go down to Pro B and be replaced by two teams from the French second division.

The budgets are quite different when it comes to the eighteen teams and it’s little surprise to see ASVEL having the biggest amount of spending power, while Monaco are also well above average.

Betting customers can often enjoy the chance to bet In-Play on this French basketball division, while there’s also the chance to enjoy live streaming of the action.
