It’s a busy day of Ligue 1 action on Saturday, with all of the teams in action as the season reaches it’s climax. PSG may have the title wrapped up, but there is still plenty to play for elsewhere. No teams have succumbed to the spectre of relegation just yet and this weekend could prove to be pivotal for the teams near the bottom.

The race for the European spots is still very much on. Monaco currently occupy the last Champions League spot, but Nice are hot on their tails after picking up three points in the week.

  • Stade Rennais vs Marseille – Marseille/Draw Double Chance & Over 5 Corners (1.83)

Nice vs Lille Best Bet

Saturday, May 14th, 20:00 (UK Time)

This clash sees Christophe Galtier welcome his former club and Lille will be keen the avenge the 4-0 drubbing they received at the hands of Nice earlier in the season. Lille have had a disappointing season and they currently find themselves in 10th place, with little more than pride left to play for.

Up until their 4-2 win midweek, Nice had struggled for goals in their recent matches. The team came back from two goals down and they will be looking to carry this attacking threat.

Lille have lost their last two matches and there is far more motivation for the home side heading into this game. Nice also have a strong home record, losing just once at home in their last 10 matches in all competitions. Lille have won just three of their last 10 away matches, so I’m happy to back Nice to win here and keep up the pressure on Monaco.

bet365 are offering 1.86 if we combine the Nice win with over five corners in the match. The meeting between the sides earlier in the season saw 15 corners, and both of these teams last 10 matches are averaging around 10 corners.

  • Selection: Nice To Win & Over 5 Corners In the Match
  • Best Odds: 1.86 (bet365)
  • Stake: 8/10

Stade Rennais vs Marseille Best Bet

Saturday, May 14th, 20:00 (UK Time)

Stade Rennais suffered a disappointing defeat midweek that has dented their hopes of Champions League qualification. They face a stern test in the form of Marseille this weekend, who could secure their own qualification to Europe’s top competition with a point.

Rennes have a miserable record against Marseille, winning just once in the last nine meetings between the teams. However, Rennes have a great home record this season and have secured 40 points from their 18 matches in front of their own fans.

I won’t take Marseille to win the game outright as a result of Rennes’ strong home record, but I’m happy to take the double chance on Marseille or draw. Rennes could still finish above Marseille should they beat them here, and Jorge Sampaoli’s side will be keen to wrap up Champions League qualification this weekend.

If we add over 5 corners in the match to Marseille double chance, bet365 will give us generous odds of 1.83. There were 13 corners when the teams met earlier this season, and there have been 6 or more corners in each teams last five matches.

  • Selection: Marseille/Draw Double Chance & Over 5 Corners
  • Best Odds: 1.83 (bet365)
  • Stake: 8/10

Bordeaux vs Lorient Best Bet

Saturday, May 14th, 20:00 (UK Time)

Bordeaux currently occupy last place in the table, and their relegation could be confirmed if they fail to beat Lorient this weekend. The best that the home team can hope for is a relegation playoff at this stage, and I expect them to throw the kitchen sink at this one in order to get a result.

Lorient are also at risk of going down, but a win here could potentially secure their place in Ligue 1 next season. With the stakes so high I’m expecting both teams to go all out here, and this should lead to a fair number of corners.

When these teams met at Stade du Moustoir earlier this season there were 13 corners overall. The quality of opponent an also have a significant impact on the amount of corners a team wins, and in the last five matches where these teams have been priced similarly to win they are averaging over 6 corners per game.

Bet365 have over 9.5 corners on the Asian handicap priced at 2.00 and I’m happy to take those odds given what is at stake here.

  • Selection: Asian Corners Over 9.5
  • Best Odds: 2.00 (bet365)
  • Stake: 8/10

An acca usually. consists of at least four selections but many more can be included. There will be odds for the single bet as a whole which is calculated by multiplying the odds of all of the selections. A Ligue 1 acca is one of the most popular ways to bet. This is the case because they can create potentially massive odds for a small stake. Many punters choose to create Ligue 1 accas which is what we have created here. If one of these selections loses then the Ligue 1 acca will lose. This type of bet needs every selection to win in order to succeed
