Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (Feb. 18th – 20th)

FC Metz +1 ½ -153 vs Lille OSC -1 ½ +116

  • When: Friday, Feb. 18

Lille shows 2 wins, 2 losses, and a draw in their last 5. One positive note is that Lille won their last match, a 1-0 victory against Montpellier. 

In their last 5, Metz has lost 3 with a draw and a win. Metz forced a draw in the last head-to-head, which is one of the reasons the road squad is -153 on the handicap. But although Metz can keep this close, Lille has momentum. A home team victory by at least 2 goals can happen.  

Soccer Pick: Lille OSC  

Olympique Lyon +141 vs RC Lens +175

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 19

Lens should be in some trouble. The home team has just 1 win in their last 4 matches. Also, Lyon won the last head-to-head.

The home team favorite has won 4 with a loss in their last 5. Lyon should take this. The slight overlay odds are a bonus.  

Soccer Pick: Lyon  

Paris Saint-Germain +1 ½ +125 vs FC Nantes +1 ½ -166

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 19

Both teams are playing lights out. Nantes has won 4-of-5. So has Paris Saint-Germain.

Because this happens on Nantes’ pitch, we must lay -166 to get the +1 ½. For sure, the home squad could keep this close. But PSG won the last head-to-head via a 3-1 score. Not only that, but the handicap odds make Paris more than playable. 

Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain  

Montpellier HSC +205 vs FC Lorient +127

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 20

Neither team is playing that well, which means we must look beyond form to find the winner. 

On Feb. 13, Lorient drew 0-0 versus AS Monaco. Then in their previous match on Feb. 6, the home squad dusted Lens 2-0. But Montpellier won the last head-to-head. That and the odds make the road team the play. 

Soccer Pick: Montpellier  

AS Monaco -156 vs Girondins Bordeuax +370

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 20

AS Monaco is rolling. Although the road chalk drew versus Lorient in their last, the draw happened after 3 straight wins.

One of the wins was a dynamite 2-0 victory against Lyon on Feb. 5. Monaco beat Bordeaux 3-0 in the last head-to-head. The road squad gets it done. 

Soccer Pick: AS Monaco  

 Clermont Foot 63 +1 ½ -169 vs Olympique Marseille -1 ½ +121

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 20

On Oct. 31 last year, Marseille beat Clermont 1-0. Another 1-0 victory could definitely happen.

A win by 2 goals, though, doesn’t seem possible. But laying -169 on Clermont isn’t a good bet either. So what’s the play? The draw. Marseille has 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5. Clermont Foot has 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. The draw is a real possibility. 

Soccer Pick: Draw
