Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (April 2nd – 3rd)

Stade Rennes +131 vs31 OGC Nice +205

  • When: Saturday, April 2

This match is a story of two teams going in opposite directions. Home squad Nice is the underdog because they show a draw and a loss in their last couple.

Stade Rennes is the favorite because they have won 4-of-5 and 3 straight. All 3 victories impressed: 4-2 against Lyon, 2-1 versus Leicester City in a Europa Conference match, and 6-1 against Metz on March 20. Stade Rennes should make it 4 straight. 

Soccer Pick: Stade Rennes  

Girondins Bordeaux +1 +100 vs Lille OSC -1 -126

  • When: Saturday, April 2

Bordeaux is in horrible form. The road dog has lost 3 straight. None of the 3 losses were close. Troyes beat Bordeaux 2-0, PSG dominated 3-0, and Montpellier blasted the road underdog 2-0.

Lille beat Nantes 1-0 in their last. Although Lille dropped the match before, they did so against one of the best teams in the world, Chelsea, and they hung with Blues in the 1-2 game. Lille covers the -1. 

Soccer Pick: Lille  

Olympique Marseille +110 vs AS Saint-Etienne +250

  • When: Saturday, April 2

Marseille is on a 4-match winning streak. Making it 5 in a row is a big possibility, but it won’t be easy.

The home squad in this beat Metz on March 6 and then drew against Saint-Etienne and Troyes. Also, Saint-Etienne is the home team. Still, the road team is playing too well to lose. If the odds were lower, a bet on Saint-Etienne would make sense. At +110, Marseille is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Olympique Marseille  

AS Monaco -185 vs FC Metz +480

  • When: Sunday, April 3

Save for the 6-1 loss to Stade Rennes in their last, Metz has played okay. The home underdog drew 0-0 against Lens on March 13. Metz shows a couple of other draws, both in February, versus Lille and Nantes in their last 5. 

AS Monaco beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 on March 20. The victory is a sign Monaco is the better team in this contest. But Monaco could bounce after such an emotional victory. The odds make Metz more than playable. 

Soccer Pick: Metz 

Angers SCO +1 ½ -142 vs Olympique Lyon -1 ½ +108

  • When: Sunday, April 3

On March 20, Angers broke a 4-match losing streak with a 1-0 win against Brest. Before the victory, Angers had dropped matches to Stade de Reims, Stade Rennes, Lens and Nice. 

Lyon has drawn in 2 straight. Angers dusted Lyon 3-0 in the last head-to-head. But the loss happened on August 15, 2021. Lyon figures to return the favor, which means the home team is a good choice to cover the handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Olympique Lyon  

FC Lorient +2 -113 vs Paris Saint-Germain -2 -116

  • When: Sunday, April 3

PSG and Lorient show similar form. Both have 2 wins in their last 5. But although Paris plays this at Parc de Princes, Lorient has a big shot to keep it close.

PSG has lost 3-of-5. Lorient has lost 2-of-5. These two drew in the last head-to-head. So consider backing the draw if you think history repeats itself. If you don’t, grab the +2 on the road dog. 

Soccer Pick: FC Lorient
