French Ligue 2 Predictions & Betting Tips

Expert Ligue 2 Betting Tips

Ligue 2 might not have the glamour and attraction of some of the top leagues in Europe, but that doesn’t mean to say it doesn’t offer some fantastic betting opportunities. With the division not as well known as their top tier counterparts, there are plenty of opportunities to spot some value bets.

The key to betting on any sport is to do your research. That is especially true of Ligue 2. This is where our bettingexpert tipsters come in. Our expert French Ligue 2 predictions are offered throughout the season, but what makes our tips that little bit special?

We can only offer expert Ligue 2 betting tips if our members put in the hard work. Our most successful tipsters know that to win bets, you have to keep learning. Every aspect of the game is considered, from injuries and suspensions to upcoming fixtures and form. An appealing thing about betting on Ligue 2 is that some bookmakers can, on occasion, missprice a bet. This is because the league isn’t as popular as others, and information can be more difficult to come by.

In turn, this means that there is plenty of value to be had, if you know what to look out for. By reading our expert French Ligue 2 predictions, you can learn how our members approach their own betting and which odds and markets they consider most often.

Our expert Ligue 2 betting tips focus on more than just the most popular markets. Match Result and Both Teams To Score are common markets with Ligue 2 betting, but there can be much better value in Handicap and Half betting.

When you find a Ligue 2 betting tip that appeals, be sure to read the detailed analysis that accompanies the prediction. The tip itself is explained, along with the stake placed.

Ligue 2 Stats

Ligue 2 betting is notoriously difficult to get right consistently. Many bettors prefer the Outright Winner market, though this too is tough. When it comes to goal totals, Ligue 2 is one of the lowest scoring leagues in Europe with a mere 42% of games ending with at least three goals scored. In comparison to the five big leagues of Europe, this is by far the lowest figure with an average of 2.36 goals scored per Ligue 2 games over the last five seasons.

League Over 2.5 Goals Under 2.5 Goals
Bundesliga 56.2% 43.8%
La Liga 50.3% 49.7%
Ligue 1 47.3% 52.7%
Premier League 52.1% 47.9%
Serie A 52.2% 47.8%
Ligue 2 42.0% 58.0%

Ligue 2 has one of the slightest home field advantages in European football with home teams winning just under 42% of games played over the last five seasons, which is below the big five European leagues. The average goal advantage for home teams in Ligue 2 is just +0.26 goals, well below a league such as the Spanish La Liga that has seen an average advantage of +0.41 goals for home teams the last five seasons.

League Home Win % Ave. Home Points Won Home Advantage (Goals per game)
Bundesliga 46.0% 1.63 +0.39
La Liga 46.6% 1.65 +0.41
Ligue 1 45.8% 1.64 +0.39
Premier League 45.7% 1.60 +0.34
Serie A 44.2% 1.58 +0.31
Ligue 2 41.9% 1.55 +0.26

As we might expect, given the low scoring nature of Ligue 2, just under 48% of games ended with both teams scoring, which is again below the big five leagues of Europe. When it comes to scoreless matches we can see that Ligue 2 has by far the highest frequency in comparison to the major leagues, with just over 11% of Ligue 2 matches ending without a goal being scored.

League Both Teams Score – Yes Scoreless Matches
Bundesliga 55.1% 6.9%
La Liga 50.3% 7.3%
Ligue 1 48.2% 7.9%
Premier League 50.8% 7.5%
Serie A 53.8% 7.5%
Ligue 2 47.9% 11.2%

Ligue 2 Favourites

Generally, the sides who have been relegated from Ligue 1 are amongst the favourites to return to the top flight immediately. Is this a fair reflection of a typical Ligue 2 season?

The France second tier is a pretty competitive league. Betting on the Outright Winner market is a popular choice for many, but it can be difficult to get right. Betting Each Way or Playoffs betting might be safer choices, though of course the odds for these markets aren’t as attractive.

Let’s see the last ten winners of Ligue 2.

2019/2020 Lorient Lens
2018/2019 Metz Brest
2017/2018 Reims Nimes

Bet On Ligue 2

Despite its standing as a second tier, there are still plenty of opportunities to bet on Ligue 2 football. Most bookmakers online will offer some form of Ligue 2 betting.

No matter who you bet with, how attractive the odds appear or how enticing a football promotion might be, always approach your betting sensibly. You can do this by developing your own betting strategy. Keep track of the bets you place, the stakes you place and the odds you take to start off with. This will help you keep a tight rein on your bankroll and enable you to find your own betting style.

To answer this question sufficiently, there is lots to consider. Who offers the best market range? Most competitive odds? Football promotions?
