Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (Feb. 26th – 27th)

OGC Nice +220 vs Strasbourg Alsace +120

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 26

Home squad Strasbourg has played well. The favorite has won 3 with 1 loss and a single draw in their last 5. 

Not only that, but Strasbourg won the last head-to-head 3-0. Counting the match before last, Strasbourg has won the last two head-to-head by 5 goals to 0. Nice is in good enough form to make this interesting, but the home team should be ahead at the final whistle in regulation.  

Soccer Pick: Strasbourg Alsace  

AS Saint-Etienne +2 ½ -142 vs Paris Saint-Germain -2 ½ +107

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 26

PSG doesn’t always play its best. Paris fell to Nantes 3-1 in their last Ligue 1 match. Before the loss, though, PSG had won 3 straight.

Almost as important? The Paris Saint-Germain handicap is the only that offers value. It’s tough to lay -142 on AS Saint-Etienne even if we get 2 ½ goals. Paris’ moneyline odds are too low. The PSG handicap is the bet to make.  

Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain   

Stade Reims +1 ½ -181 vs AS Monaco -1 ½ +129

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 27

AS Monaco has the edge. Monaco shows zero losses in their last 5. Although Monaco has drawn in 2 straight, the home favorite had won 3 straight. 

On Feb. 20, Stade de Reims drew 1-1 against Brest. Before that, the underdog road team had lost 3-of-4. Monaco won’t find it easy to beat Reims by 2 goals. But the odds make the home team handicap the play. 

Soccer Pick: AS Monaco  

FC Nantes +150 vs FC Metz +185

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 27

Nantes is on fire. The road squad has won 4-of-5, including their last, a 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain. 

Metz shows a single victory in their last 5 and it happened back on Jan. 15 in a 1-0 match against Stade de Reims. Nantes won the last head-to-head by 2 goals. The road team looks best. 

Soccer Pick: FC Nantes 

Olympique Marseille -123 vs Estac Troyes +300

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 27

Marseille heads to Troyes off a loss. On Feb. 20, Clermont Foot beat the road team in this 2-0. Before the loss, Marseille had won 3-of-4 with the lone loss happening versus Nice in a Coupe de France match.

Estac Troyes last won on Jan. 19 when they beat Montpellier 1-0. Troyes’ last two opponents, Brest and Stade Rennais, beat the home team a combined 9 goals to 2. Marseille wins.

Soccer Pick: Marseille  

Lille OSC +300 vs Olympique Lyon -125

  • When: Sunday, Feb. 27

Lille is not playing well. The 2021 Ligue 1 champs have lost 3-of-5 with a single win and a draw. Chelsea blasted Lille 2-0 in the road team’s last. 

Lyon has won 3-of-5. These two drew in the last head-to-head. Don’t expect another draw. Lyon should win this in regulation. 

Soccer Pick: Olympique Lyon
