Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch this Weekend – Round 38
French Ligue 1 Season Final Matchday
- When: Sunday, May 23
Lille -1 ½ (+108) Vs Angers +1 ½ (-142)
A victory propels Lille to the title. But any hiccup and Paris Saint-Germain could be there to grab the season win from Lille. Don’t expect the road squad in this to hold back. Angers has gone 1-4 in their last 5. Lille will go all out to secure the victory. The likely Ligue 1 title victors are a good play on the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Lille
Paris Saint-Germain -1 ½ (-147) Vs Stade Brestois +1 ½ (+112)
PSG is on fire. They’ve won 3 straight, including beating As Monaco 2-0 in the French Coup de France Final on May 19. Paris should have no trouble beating Stade Brestois. But it’s asking too much to lay -147 and 1 ½ goals. Brestois is the play on the handicap.
Soccer Pick: Stade Brestois
Nice +2 ½ (-181) Vs Lyonnaise -2 ½ (+127)
Lyonnaise has won 3 straight. They should also win on Sunday. The reason Lyon is such a huge favorite on the handicap is because they beat Nice by 3 goals, 4-1, in the last head-to-head. It’s asking a lot for Lyon to win by so many goals again. But Nice is unplayable at -181. So the home team gets the nod.
Soccer Pick: Lyonnaise
As Monaco -163 Vs Lens +336
Monaco saw the real Paris Saint-Germain in the French Coup de France finale. The road chalk in this will look to make amends for the poor Coup de France showing. In the last head-to-head, Lens blasted Monaco 3-0. Recent form suggests Lens doesn’t come close to repeating the effort.
Soccer Pick: As Monaco
Marseille +108 Vs Metz +215
On May 16, Marseille beat Angers 3-2. Before that, the road favorite had lost to Saint-Etienne and drawn with Strasbourg. Metz may not beat Marseille, but they’ve got a great chance of forcing a draw. These two have drawn in the last couple of head-to-head matches, one in 2019 and one in 2020.
Soccer Pick: Draw
French Ligue 1 Weekly Betting Update
Nimes +1 ½ (-129) Vs Stade Rennais -1 ½ (+100)
Stade Rennais has a draw and a loss in their last couple. Before writing off Rennais, though, checkout Stade’s last couple of opponents. The draw happened against Paris Saint-Germain. The 1-goal loss happened versus As Monaco. Stade Rennais can cover this spread.
Soccer Pick: Stade Rennais
Girondins Bordeaux +208 Vs Stade Reims +137
Reims has lost 3 and drawn twice in their last 5. Bordeuax has won 2-of-3. On Dec. 23, Reims beat Bordeaux 3-1. The home team is a solid play.
Soccer Pick: Stade Reims
Montpellier +382 Vs Nantes -196
Nantes is on a 4-match winning streak. None of the 4 teams are as good as Montpellier, though. But the road team shouldn’t upset the home chalk. Montpellier could force a draw.
Soccer Pick: Draw
Dijon +1 ½ (-129) Vs Saint-Etienne -1 ½ (-101)
Saint-Etienne heads into this after a couple of wins and a draw. The draw happened versus Lille, which is almost like a victory considering how well the Ligue 1 leader has played. Dijon remains the worst team in Ligue 1. Etienne should have no trouble covering this handicap.
Soccer Pick: Saint-Etienne
Lorient +309 Vs Strasbourg Alsace +152
Lorient has won 3-of-4. The loss among the 4 matches happened against Lyon on May 8. Strasbourg won their last match. On May 16, the home team in this beat Nice 2-0. Lorient won the last head-to-head 3-1, making them an attractive overlay at +309.
Soccer Pick: Lorient
