This Weekend's Ligue 1 Betting Tips

Tip Odds
Over 1.5 goals in all seven of Sunday's Ligue 1 games 4/1 with William Hill
St Etienne to concede first goal against Angers 11/10 with Boyle Sports
Lille vs. Brest - both teams to score 49/50 with Unibet

Two Goal Minimum To Continue in Ligue 1

Of the last 30 games played in Ligue, 27 have seen over 1.5 goals scored. Two of the last three rounds of fixtures have seen all 10 matches reach the two-goal tally and unless something drastic happens, that trend is likely to continue this weekend.

Of the 99 matches played so far this campaign, 88 per cent of them have produced a minimum of two goals. There are seven matches taking place in the French top flight on Sunday and William Hill are offering odds of 4/1 for over 1.5 goals to land in all seven of them.

If you are given a free bet from your chosen bookmaker, why not try it on these tips.

St Etienne Struggles Set To Continue

St Etienne are one of two Ligue 1 sides still awaiting their first league win of the season. Brest are the other and they are one place above St Etienne at the bottom of the table thanks to an extra draw they have managed in their 10 games played so far.

There are many issues that need addressing for St Etienne who finished 11th last season. Claude Puel's side have been terrible starters this season and have conceded the first goal in nine of their 10 games and that includes the last eight. They have yet to keep a clean sheet and after conceding five against Strasbourg last weekend, they might have to wait a while for their first shutout of the campaign.

A home game with fifth-placed Angers is going to be another challenge for the basement side who drew 2-2 at Lens in the only Ligue 1 game they did manage to score the first goal back on August 15. Despite St Etienne's dismal record of conceding the first goal, Angers are 11/10 with Boyle Sports to score first this weekend.

Brest to Continue BTTS trend

Close followers of Ligue 1 will no doubt have noticed the frequency in which Stade Brest have been involved in matches where both teams have scored. BTTS has paid out in all 10 of the struggling side's matches. In nine of those matches, Brest have scored exactly one goal.

This weekend, Brest travel to the out-of-sorts defending Lille who are looking to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat at Clermont last time out. Jocelyn Gourvennec's side are struggling to cope with the pressure of being the defending champions and six of their games have seen BTTS pay out.

Unibet are offering odds of 49/50 for both teams to score at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday. Lille would like to win the game comfortably and they are 13/8 with BetVictor to win to nil.
