Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (Jan. 8th – 9th)

FC Lorient +480 vs Lille OFC -188

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 8

Lorient should be in a world of hurt. The road dog has lost 4 with a draw in its last 5. At least the draw happened versus PSG.

Lille has won 4-of-5 with a draw. One of the home team’s wins happened in a 3-1 Champions League match versus Wolfsburg. Lille takes this.  

Soccer Pick: Lille  

OGC Nice +132 vs Stade Brest 29 +185

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

Stade Brest shows 3 wins, a loss, and a draw in their last 5. But although the home squad has a shot, they aren’t the play.

Nice has won 3 straight. Not only that, but the road favorite has beaten Brest in the last couple of head-to-head matches. Nice wins. 

Soccer Pick: Nice    

Stade Reims +200 vs Clermont Foot 63 +138

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

Clermont versus Reims should be one of the most competitive matches of the weekend. Foot has won 2 straight, 1-0 against Angers and 4-0 versus Chemin Bas d’Avignon in a Coupe de France game. 

Reims has won 3 with a loss and a draw in their last 5. The road dog beat Clermont 1-0 in the last head-to-head, but the home squad should turn the tables. Clermont Foot is the play.  

Soccer Pick: Clermont Foot  

Strasbourg Alsace -116 vs FC Metz +290

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

Strasbourg has won 3-of-5 with a draw and a loss. The draw happened versus AS Roma.

The L happened in a match against Marseilles. On Sep. 17, Strasbourg dusted Metz 3-0. Also, Metz has lost 3-of-5, making the road team the play. 

Soccer Pick: Strasbourg  

AS Monaco +190 vs FC Nantes +215

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

As Monaco has won 2 straight, 2-0 against Red Star in a Coupe de France match and a 2-1 victory over Stade Rennais. Monaco has also beaten Nantes in 4 of the last 5 head-to-head matches.

But although the road dog looks tough, the home team has a chance. Nantes has won 4 straight. Give the road underdog a look.  

Soccer Pick: Nantes  

Paris Saint-Germain -116 vs Olympique Lyon +250

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 9

With 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5, Paris Saint-Germain is in better form. Lyon shows 4 straight draws and a loss in their last 5.

But Lyon offers overlay odds. There’s a chance Messi doesn’t play due to a Covid positive. If that happens, Lyon has a real shot to pull off the upset. Even if Messi steps onto the pitch, Lyon is the pick because we can’t look past the odds.   

Soccer Pick: Lyon.
