As long as you’re always tipping the team Kyllian Mbappe plays for to score goals galore, you can never go wrong…
To score and win tips
Here’s a double-win for you: bet on the team you think will win and score and claim some of the best Ligue 1 free bets going around.
For this particular wager, you’ll want to focus on the big guns, the teams that won’t let you down: PSG, Lyon, Marseille and the likes.
Then all you need to do is sit back and watch the goals and points rake in.
Both teams to score
A punt that does exactly what it says on the tin — both teams need to score either within the 90 minutes or after extra time, including penalty permutations, regardless of the final result.
Sounds juicy enough, right? Well, if you’re looking to cash in on it, the teams you’ll want to keep an eye out for are PSG (scored over a 100 goals last season) and Lyon (their talisman Moussa Dembele netted 27 times in last year’s campaign).
When the pair face-off, expect a high-scoring affair.
This one is just as easy as the BTTS wager, and definitely a market that you’ll want to delve into with the Ligue 1 betting tips on hand.
All you have to do is decide whether or not you think the game will feature a penalty.
Interestingly enough, it’s Lille and PSG that have racked up the most penalties across the seasons.
To score a header
If the goal scored is via the player’s head then this bet is an eligible one to dive into.
Fortunately, across Ligue 1 there are plenty of individuals capable of doing so — six feet and above — which makes the odds of a headed goal going in every weekend wager-worthy.
From Kalifa Coulibaly (6ft 4″) to Benjamin Lecomte (6ft 1″), expect these beasts of the back four to bring plenty of joy to those punting on this market.
Player total shots
Fans of attackers, assemble – this particular market leans heavily on strikers and the French cohort have plenty to offer on the betting front.
From Mbappe and Neymar, to Memphis Depay and Dimitri Payet, there is enough talent to put those Ligue 1 tips to use for days.
The man leading the charts, incidentally, is Neymar, who took 4.7 shots per goal last season.
Player total tackles
If you’re looking to wager on all things defence, look no further. Squawka Bet are offering exactly that in the form of the ‘player total tackles’ market.
Indeed, if you are looking for a big handout, the players providing the most enticing Ligue 1 odds — well, at least they were last season — are Eduardo Camavinga of Rennes with 93, followed up by Habib Maiga of Metz with 72.
If recent events have taught us anything — and yes, we mean that PSG/Marseille game — it’s that Ligue 1 is a feisty and simmering affair, capable of providing all the drama, and as that game proved, all the cards.
That particular game featured straight red cards for Neymar and Jordan Amavi, and then second-yellow bookings for Leandro Parades, Layvin Kurzawa and Dario Benedetto. More of the same, please.
A more lucrative market to put those Ligue 1 tips to use, offsides have been a problem for managers across the globe since the dawn of time — or inception of football.
Fortunately, you’ll now be able to punt on it and finally cash in on those middle-toe, armpit offside calls instead of raging at the TV, even if it is your team involved.
A nice change of pace if you ask us.
This particular market involves an over/under tally to choose from and could make a great addition to any Ligue 1 betting accumulators.
You’ll want to make sure you read our predictive betting previews before you take a stab in the dark — we’ll ensure you’ve got the right data to emerge with cash in hand on the total number of corners notched up in any game across the 2020/21 season.
Ligue 1 VAR specials
We all know what Ligue 1 think of VAR — *cue the boos*. However, despite the negativity towards it, there’s still plenty to make use of in the Ligue 1 betting markets.
Whether it’s another Neymar goal ruled offside, or another red-card-fest between the Brazilian and practically the rest of the league, where VAR is concerned, there’ll be plenty to wager on.
So, keep your eyes peeled as the season continues to unfold and provide us with plenty of action and intrigue.
