Ligue 1 Betting Tips & Predictions

We are getting close to another exciting Ligue 1 season. If the 2021/2022 season goes half as thrilling as the previous one, we are in for a bang. 

Last season, we saw the long-term reigning champion Paris Saint-Germain dethroned by Lille, which surprised football fans all around the world. But what Ligue 1 betting tips do we hope to get now?

Events starting soon

French Ligue 1 2021/2022 Title Favorites and Odds

There are no surprises about which team is the biggest favourite. PSG is still tipped to win the title, even though they failed to do so last year. Lille’s win may have been a fluke. 

Still, the Parisians are coming in strong with a plethora of world-class signings and the likes of Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos, and Gianluigi Donnarumma filling in their ranks. 

Further down the pecking order Olympique Lyonnais, Monaco, and Lille are waiting patiently. Les Gones lost their captain and best player, Memphis Depay, to Barcelona this season but have strengthened their defence by bringing in Henrique and Damien Da Silva both on a free. Meanwhile, the Monégasques hope to pair their spectacular attacking duo Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland with a new arrival from Lyonnais, Jean Lucas, to make a run at the title. 

The defending champions, Lille, were not able to replace the departures of Boubakary Soumaré and Mike Maignan and are entering the 2021/22 Ligue 1 season almost unchanged. It is hard to assume that Burak Yilmaz and Jonathan David are going to replicate the form from last season, but if the defence remains steady, they can contend for the title once again. 

The most logical way to approach the latest Ligue 1 betting tips is to assume that PSG is going to give it their all to win back the title. They may be distracted by chasing the elusive Champions League trophy, which is where other teams view their opportunity. 

French Ligue 1 2021/2022 Week 21 Results

Bookmakers For Betting On Ligue 1

The world’s most popular bookmakers provide deep menus of Ligue 1 betting markets. When choosing a Ligue 1 bookmaker, there are a few points to keep in mind. The most important of these are:

  • Ligue 1 Odds
  • Ligue 1 Markets

While any bookmaker worth taking seriously offers odds for Ligue 1 matches, odds can differ from bookmaker to bookmaker. So it’s important to determine which Ligue 1 markets you want to focus on and look around for the bookmakers consistently offering the best odds for those markets.

For example, if you prefer to bet on traditional football markets such as Match Result, you will want to find a bookmaker who is consistently among the market leaders when it comes to odds for this market.

If you are outside France, you may also find a bookmaker offering live streaming of Ligue 1 matches. This can be great regardless of whether you bet on Ligue 1 or just want to sit back and watch a game from France’s top division.
