Ligue 1 has been surprisingly competitive this season, with PSG not running away with it as the second half of the season begins. As a result, there are some enticing betting opportunities to look forward to in what should be an exciting week. Here, we look at the three most exciting Ligue 1 Betting opportunities for what will be a very important weekend in the title race for the French top flight.
Best French Ligue 1 Betting Games to Watch This Week (Jan. 28th – 15th)
Saturday: Marseille vs Monaco
Marseille and Monaco occupy the third and fourth spots in the Ligue 1 table, making their match this weekend a huge one. Not only will the winner move closer to the top of the table, but this match could have huge implications for Champions League qualification later in the year. Marseille is a slight favorite to win the match, but both teams are at a plus price to pick up the victory on Saturday.
With this match, bettors can take either side to win the match at plus money, or a draw for a plus price as well. Given how good both of these teams have been in the league this year, there is value on every option. While Marseille is expected to be the most likely outcome to win at home, Monaco can’t be ruled out either, and this will likely be the best match of the weekend in the top of French football.
Sunday: Nice vs Lille
An interesting mid-table battle will take place on Sunday, when Nice and Lille face off. This match does not have the same title implications as the match between Marseille and Monaco, but both teams can do a lot to secure their positions in the top half of the league here. As a result, there is some solid value when it comes to betting on this match.
It may be worth taking a look at the draw in this matchup, as both teams will benefit from simply not losing the match. Nice will benefit from a draw especially, as they are only 10 points clear of the drop zone heading into the second half of the season. Expect them to do whatever they can to secure a point to move them a step closer to survival when this season is all said and done.
Sunday: PSG vs Reims
Our final Ligue 1 betting opportunities for this weekend features the mighty PSG, who come into this match just three points clear at the top of the table. They are going to need to put some distance between themselves and the rest of the league soon, to allow them to focus on bigger matches in other competitions. Because of that, a look at the over in this match may be worthwhile.
A statement win for PSG here would be big, as it would allow them to bolster their goal differential. In the event that the league standings stay as tight as they have been, that goal differential could be what saves their title hopes, and we should see PSG’s stars shine accordingly.
