Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (Feb. 5th – 6th)

Montpellier HSC +160 vs AS Saint-Etienne +165 

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 5

Saint-Etienne and Montpellier show the exact same form. Both have 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. Both lost their last match and both show a Coup de France game and a Ligue 1 game victory.

But although the home team shows the same form as Montpellier, the road squad’s league win happened against AS Monaco. Also, Montpellier won the last head-to-head. The road team gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Montpellier 

Olympique Lyon +255 vs AS Monaco -105

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 5

Both teams are playing well. The difference is in the odds. AS Monaco is at -105 because they’re the home squad.

Although Monaco should be favored, they’re not worth a bet at the odds. Lyon won the last head-to-head and is on a 3-match winning streak. The road team is a solid play. 

Soccer Pick: Olympique Lyon

RC Lens +116 vs FC Lorient +220

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 5

Both teams will limp into this match. Lorient and Lens have lost their last two games. 

Lorient fell 3-1 to Lille on Jan. 19. Then on Jan. 23, Nantes beat Lorient 4-2. Lens lost to Marseille 0-2 on Jan. 22. Then on Jan. 30, Monaco beat Lens 4-2.

The two rivals drew in the last head-to-head. Because neither squad is playing better than the other, another draw appears possible.  

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Girondins Bordeaux +240 vs Stade Reims +109

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 5

Based on the way each team played in their last matches, Reims is a play against. Reims has lost 3 straight while Bordeaux broke a 4-match losing streak with a 4-3 win over Strasbourg in their last. 

But Bordeaux may have gotten lucky versus Strasbourg. Then again, Bordeuax bested Stade Reims in the last head-to-head. The road squad is worth a look.   

Soccer Pick: Girondins Bordeaux   

Stade Brest 29 +500 vs Stade Rennes -204

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 5

Stade Rennes and Stade Brest are reeling. Rennes has lost 4-of-5, including dropping their last match to Clermont Foot.

Brest has lost 3-of-5. Rennes is the chalk because they’re at home. At -204, though, Rennes is a play against. Brest beat Lille 2-0 on Jan. 22. The victory impresses big time. Also, the odds on Brest make them an overlay.  

Soccer Pick: Stade Brest 29 

Paris Saint-Germain -119 vs Lille OSC +280

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 6

PSG is in better form. Kylian Mbappe and his mates have won 3-of-5 with a draw and a loss. But the loss happened in Paris Saint-Germain’s last match.

Also, the loss happened to Nice. On Sunday, PSG travel to Lille’s pitch. The defending champions aren’t in great form, they lost to Lille in their last, but always step it up versus Paris. Lille can prevail. 

Soccer Pick: Lille
