Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch this Week (Sep. 10th – 12th)

Lille +104 vs Lorient +255

  • When: Friday, Sep. 10

In 3 matches, defending champion Lille had struggled, but on Aug. 29, Lille got back on track with a 2-1 victory versus Montpellier. Lorient beat As Monaco on Aug. 13. Since then, the home team has struggled. Lille should win their second straight. 

Soccer Pick: Lille  

Clermont Foot +1 ½ (+110) vs Paris Saint-Germain -1 ½ (-147)

  • When: Saturday, Sep. 11

Undefeated PSG has rolled through their competition. They should easily cover this handicap, but the odds require us to take a look at the road squad. In their 3 Ligue 1 matches, Clermont Foot has a victory and a couple of draws. Clermont won’t beat PSG. But they may keep this within a goal. The above even money handicap odds entice. 

Soccer Pick: Clermont Foot 

Marseille +235 vs As Monaco +103

  • When: Saturday, Sep. 11

Monaco beat Marseille 3-1 in the last head-to-head. Heading into this match, though, Marseille is in much better form. Marseille beat Saint-Etienne 3-1 in their last. The road team gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Marseille 

As Saint-Etienne +175 vs Montpellier +141

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Although Montpellier shows a draw, a win, and a loss in their last 3, they’re the team to back in this matchup. The road squad lost their last by 2 goals. Montpellier, because this happens on their pitch, should grab the victory. 

Soccer Pick: Montpellier  

Lens +118 vs Bordeaux +205

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Bordeaux has a couple of draws and a couple of losses in their last 4. Lens has drawn in 4-of-5. On Aug. 21, Lens beat Monaco 2-0. Bordeaux has a chance. But Lens is a better play to grab their second win of the season.  

Soccer Pick: Lens  

Stade Reims +420 vs Stade Rennes -156

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

In the last couple of head-to-head matches, Stade Reims and Stade Rennes have drawn 2-2. Rennes is getting the benefit of the doubt because this is on their pitch and had won 3straight before facing Angers in their last. Reims is not without a shot, though. Because the home team shows underlay odds, we’re backing the road squad.   

Soccer Pick: Stade Reims  

Estac Troyes +215 vs Metz +123

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Metz has drawn in 4-of-5. Troyes has lost 4-of-5 with a draw. The home team offers decent odds to beat a former Ligue 2 squad. Backing Mets to win this in regulation makes sense. 

Soccer Pick: Metz  

Angers +160 vs Stade Brest +155

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Heading into the weekend, Angers has 10 points, just 2 points behind French Ligue 1 leader Paris Saint-Germain. Brest has lost 2 straight. The home team is a decent play. The road squad offers better odds. Until Angers proves otherwise, they’re the pick over teams like Brest.  

Soccer Pick: Angers  

Nice +116 vs Nantes +225

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Nantes has lost 2 straight. Nice has won 2 straight. Not only did Nice win their last couple of matches, but they dominated, beating both Lille and Bordeaux by 4-0 scores. The road team is a solid play.

Soccer Pick: Nice  

Strasbourg +1 ½ (-178) vs Lyon -1 ½ (+132)

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 12

Both teams head into this off victories. Strasbourg beat Brest 3-1 on Aug. 29. On Aug 27, Lyon beat Nantes 1-0. In the last head-to-head on Feb. 6, Lyon dominated, blasting Strasbourg 3-0. Lyon could provide a similar win in the rematch. The +132 on the handicap makes Lyon a slight overlay.  

Soccer Pick: Lyon
