3rd – 4th November 2018 Odds Comparison

PSG v Lille – Lille +2 Goals

PSG are already en route to yet another comfortable Ligue 1 title win. The Parisians have a perfect record of 11 wins from 11 matches but Thomas Tuchel will make it clear to his players that they need to remain sharp against second placed Lille. These are the two best defences in France and while PSG have a huge amount of attacking talent there are a few problems in the relationships between Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani. Lille will relish this challenge and could offer real value football betting odds to win with a two goal head start.

Lyon v Bordeaux – Under 2.5 Goals

Both Lyon and Bordeaux have plenty of room for improvement. Both teams harbour ambitions of playing European football next season but need to win these sort of challenging matches if that is to become reality. This is an important clash which is sure to bring a fair amount of nervous tension . Just one of Lyon’s home matches and two of Bordeaux’s away games have seen three or more goals scored so under 2.5 goals looks the play, with an odds comparison showing that’s available at 11/8.

Montpellier v Marseille – Montpellier to Win

With Lille visiting the Parc des Princes on Friday night, Montpellier may have a chance to move into second in the table if they can win their match against Marseille on Sunday. The football betting odds show that it’s the away side who are the favourites but could you really back a team who have been so inconsistent this season? Montpellier are unbeaten after losing their opening match of the campaign, while Marseille have lost three of five away games. Our comparison shows that the home side are available at best betting odds of 21/10 which could well be the bet of the Ligue 1 weekend.

Marseille v Toulouse – Marseille to Start With a Comfortable Win

Marseille put all their eggs in one basket towards the end of last season. Prioritising the Europa League over Ligue 1 didn’t quite go to plan as they were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Atletico Madrid in Lyon and narrowly missed out on a place in the Champions League qualifying places.

The pressure is on Rudi Garcia to deliver a top three finish this time around, especially as his contract is up at the end of the year. Garcia and Marseille should at least kickoff with a win against a Toulouse side who lost away to all of Ligue 1’s top seven teams last season. All but one of those defeats came by a margin of two goals or more so Marseille should overcome a one goal handicap.

Betting Tip: Marseille -1 Goal Handicap

Lille v Rennes – Optimism to Spur Lille to an Opening Win

They say the league table doesn’t lie but Rennes finished last season in fifth, a whopping 19 points behind Marseille in fourth. The Red and Blacks made the most of their defensive solidity to finish in a position regarded the best of the rest but they had a poor start last time and may be playing catch up again after their first match.

Lille are desperate not to be involved in another relegation scrap. To that end they’ve signed experienced players including Loic Remy and Jose Fonte, who have both played in the Premier League and at major international tournaments. Christophe Galtier is happier with his squad now than when he was appointed and hopes are high they will end the season in a comfortable midtable position. Lille certainly have every chance of starting the season with a home win and you can get the best price on a home win via our odds comparison.

Betting Tip: Lille to Win

Nantes v Monaco – Goal Shy Nantes to Prove No Obstacle to Monaco

Monaco’s task this season is simple, eat into the 13 point gap that PSG put between the two clubs at the top of the table during the last campaign. It’s going to be a long time before any team can realistically launch a challenge to PSG’s domestic dominance but Monaco will be hopeful of extracting maximum points from their opening match against Nantes.

Nantes finished ninth last season and there is no question where they need to improve to push higher up the table. Only the two relegated sides scored fewer goals than Nantes during the last campaign and that lack of quality in attack could well hurt them against Monaco.

Betting Tip: Monaco to Win to Nil

PSG v Caen – PSG May Take Time to Hit Top Gear

PSG are a truly frightening proposition when they get into their stride. Just last season they secured wins of 8-0, 7-1 and 6-2 (twice) at the Parc des Princes. Once again they are the overwhelming favourites to win the Ligue 1 title but will they take a little time to get going?

Thomas Tuchel hasn’t had a huge amount of time to work with his new players as many reported back late for preseason training due to the World Cup. The lack of match sharpness of a number of PSG stars could see Caen frustrate the champions for long periods. Therefore, it may be worth backing PSG to win and there being under 2.5 goals. The 1-0 and 2-0 correct scores are also tempting for those looking for a longer odds option.

Betting Tip: PSG to Win and Under 2.5 Goals

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.
