Top French Ligue 1 Games to Watch this Week (Aug. 27th – 29th)

Lyon -136 vs Nantes +310

  • When: Friday, Aug. 27

Nantes has played well. In 3 Ligue matches this season, the home team in this shows a draw, a win, and a loss. Lyon shows 4 draws and a loss in their last 4. Eventually, Lyon should get on the winning track, but Nantes offers overlay odds. Backing the home team makes sense. 

Soccer Pick: Nantes  

Bordeaux +400 vs Nice -166

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

At first, it looks as if Bordeaux offers overlay odds. The road team shows 2 straight draws. But Bordeaux fell 0-2 versus Clermont Foot on Aug. 8. On Aug. 14, Nice beat Lille 4-0. Although we dislike the odds, Nice should get the victory.  

Soccer Pick: Nice   

Saint-Etienne +330 vs Marseille -136

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 28

Marseille has won 3 and drawn twice in the last 5. Saint-Etienne has 4 draws and a loss in their last 5. The road team beat Marseille 1-0 in the last head-to-head. At the odds, Backing Etienne makes some sense. The draw also makes sense. Playing the draw is the way to go. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

As Monaco -126 vs Estac Troyes +310

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

Monaco has yet to get on track. The road chalk shows 3 straight losses, including dropping a match 0-2 versus Lens on Aug. 21. Troyes, though, is a mess. A French Ligue 2 squad last season, Estac hasn’t shown they deserve to play in Ligue 1. The draw with Strasbourg on Aug. 22 was just okay. Monaco wins. 

Soccer Pick: As Monaco

Lorient +320 vs Lens -123

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

Lens has won the last couple of head-to-head matches. On April 11, Lens bested Lorient 4-1. Lorient dropped their last match to Montpellier. Lens should have no trouble winning this match. If you see decent handicap odds with Lens at -1 ½, consider backing the home squad to cover. 

Soccer Pick: Lens  

Stade Brest  +265 vs Strasbourg +102

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

Strasbourg shows a win, 2 losses and 2 draws in their last 5. Stade Brest has drawn three times and lost twice in their last 5. Strasbourg won the head-to-head last October. These two drew in the last head-to-head. Another draw looks promising. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Stade Rennes +146 vs Angers +180

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

On Aug. 22, Rennes beat Nantes 1-0. Stade won the match before, a Europa Conference League Qualifier, 2-0 against Rosenberg. Angers is in great form, though. The home team shows a couple of victories and a draw in their last 3. 

Soccer Pick: Angers  

Metz +330 vs Clermont Foot  -129

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

Clermont Foot has a couple of wins and a draw in their last 3. The draw happened against top French Ligue 1 squad Lyon. Nantes beat Metz 2-0 on Aug. 15. On Aug. 22, Metz and Stade de Reims drew 1-1. Clermont takes this.  

Soccer Pick: Clermont Foot 

Paris Saint-Germain -2 ½ (+110) vs Stade Reims +2 ½ (+147)

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 29

PSG is absolutely loaded. On Aug. 25, Paris turned down a 160 million euro transfer offer for Kylian Mbappe, which means PSG wants to keep all their stars. Stade Reims is a solid team, and there’s a chance Reims keeps this to within a 2 goal loss, but Paris offers odds above even money. Once Mbappe and Messi get on the same page, Paris Saint-Germain should average 4 goals per match. PSG covers the handicap.  

Soccer Pick: Paris Saint-Germain
