Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch This Week (Jan. 15th – 16th)

RC Lens +118 vs AS Saint-Etienne +215

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 15

Saint-Etienne is up against it in this. The home team is in decent enough form, but Lens has played great in their last few matches.

Lens has won 3-of-5 and 2 straight. One of the victories was via penalties in a 2-2 Coupe de France match versus Lille. Nantes beat Etienne while the 4-1 Coupe victory over Jura Sud Foot doesn’t impress much. Lens is the play.   

Soccer Pick: Lens  

Stade Brest 29 +1 ½ +130 vs Paris Saint-Germain -1 ½ -169

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 15

Paris Saint-Germain has won 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. PSG drew 1-1 with Lorient and Lyon in 2 of their last 3 matches. 

Nice dominated Brest 3-0 in the road team’s last. That was a bad performance. But in the matches before, Brest played well, drawing 1-1 with Troyes and beating Bordeaux 3-0. Brest can hang enough for a handicap win.   

Soccer Pick: Brest  

Clermont Foot 63 +480 vs AS Monaco -212

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 16

Monaco is in much better form. The home favorite shows a draw and 3 wins in their last 4. Clermont fell to Bastia in a Coupe de France match on Jan. 2

In their last, Clermont Foot drew 0-0 with Stade de Reims. Monaco beat Clermont 3-1 in the last head-to-head. There’s a good chance this ends in a similar score. But before dumping on Monaco it’s important to notice that the home fave drew in their last. That could be a sign their form is about to deteriorate. If that’s the case, Clermont can pull off the big time upset victory. 

Soccer Pick: Clermont Foot  

Montpellier HSC +290 vs Strasbourg Alsace -117

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 16

Montpellier has the upper hand in this. Strasbourg Alsace is a lukewarm chalk for a reason.

The home team shows 3 wins and a couple of losses in their last 5. One of the losses was a Coupe match versus Montpellier. The road dog has won 5 straight. Alsace can win. It’s impossible not to grab the overlay odds on the road team, though. 

Soccer Pick: Montpellier  

Olympique Lyon -123 vs Estac Troyes +290

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 16

Lyon is in better form, but they’ve drawn in 5 straight. Estac Troyes has lost 3 with a draw and a win.

Can Lyon break through with a victory? The road favorite should. In the last head-to-head, Lyon dusted Troyes 3-1. The odds on the road team are more than fair. 

Soccer Pick: Olympique Lyon

Lille OSC +195 vs Olympique Marseille +131

  • When: Sunday, Jan. 16

Don’t be fooled by Lille’s loss to Lens. Yes, Lens upset Lille, but the match was a Coupe de France contest that ended in penalty kicks.

In the last 2 head-to-head matches versus Marseille, Lille has dominated. The road dog won both by 2-0 scores. Lille should grab a win here even though this is a road match, which means the +195 is tremendous value. 

Soccer Pick: Lille OSC
