Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (April 15th – 17th)

AS Monaco +235 at Stade Rennes +109 

  • When: Friday, April 15

The home team favorite has won 4-of-5 with a draw. One of the victories happened in Rennes’ last, a 3-2 win over Stade de Reims.

Monaco has won 3 straight. The road team’s biggest win happened versus Paris Saint-Germain in a 3-0 match. The road dog has beaten the home team in the last couple of head-to-head matches. The odds make Monaco more than playable. 

Soccer Pick: AS Monaco  

Lens +270 at Lille +102

  • When: Saturday, April 16

Lille shows 3 draws, a loss, and a win in their last 5. The home team isn’t in great form, but at least the victory and 2 draws have happened in Lille’s last 3. 

Lens has a couple of wins, a couple of losses, and a draw in their last 5. The road team heads into this after beating Nice 3-0 on April 10. Lille and Lens drew 2-2 in the last head-to-head. Another draw seems probable. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Lorient +380 at Nice -140

  • When: Sunday, April 17

The best thing we can say about road underdog Lorient is that they won their last match. On April 8, Lorient dusted St. Etienne 6-2. 

That’s pretty much the only nice thing we can say about the big time underdog. Nice shows 2 losses and 2 draws in their last 5. But this happens over Nice’s pitch. Also, Nice is too good of a soccer club to continue to lose or draw. The home team wins. 

Soccer Pick: Nice  

Stade Reims +235 at Montpellier +122

  • When: Sunday, April 17

Neither squad heads into this in their best form. Both have lost their last couple of matches.

Montpellier fell 1-2 to Brest and 2-0 to Marseille. Stade Reims lost 1-0 to Troyes and 2-3 to Stade Rennes. Because neither squad appears capable of picking up the victory, the draw is the best play. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Bordeaux +1 ½ -104 at Lyon -1 ½ -106

  • When: Sunday, April 17

On April 10, Bordeaux beat Metz 3-1. In the match before, Bordeaux drew 0-0 versus Lille. 

Lyon shows 4 draws and a victory in their last 5. These two drew in the last head-to-head. So it makes sense to either go with the draw or back Bordeaux at +1 ½. The odds on the road squad, -104 with a goal and a half, are more than fair.

Soccer Pick: Bordeaux  

Marseille +1 ½ -119 at Paris Saint-Germain -1 ½ -111 

  • When: Sunday, April 17

Marseille is on fire. The road underdog has won 5 straight. None of the 5 wins were versus top competition, though.

After an 0-3 loss to Monaco on March 20, PSG has won 2 straight. On April 3, Paris dusted Lorient 5-1. Then on April 9, Paris beat Clermont Foot 6-1. PSG wins this by at least 2 goals. 

Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain
