The start of the Ligue 1 season is just around the corner, with Paris Saint-Germain looking to restore their iron grip on French football after surrendering the title to Lille last season.

Despite becoming champions for the first time since 2011 and just the fourth time in their history, financial troubles have brought about great change at Lille, who aren’t expected to challenge this time. But the likes of Monaco and Lyon are certainly capable of keeping pace at the top of the table, just as they did throughout 2020/21.

But PSG have brought in Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi Georginio Wijnaldum and Gianluigi Donnarumma to strengthen an already impressive squad. It’s hard to see the Parisians missing out on the title for a second consecutive year.

With Squawka Bet on hand, you’ll be able to catch up to the thrills and spills in no time.

Full-time results

Perhaps one of the most popular online betting markets, if you’re looking for a sure-fire wager to put those Ligue 1 tips to use, is the full-time result.

Though each game differs from odds to form, individual talent and injury crisis, as long as you clue up with our predictive previews, you’ll have the chance to secure yourself some quick wins.

As long as you’re always tipping the team Kylian 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 86 goals last season) and Monaco (Wissam Ben Yedder was second only to Kylian Mbappe with 20 goals last season).

When the pair face-off, expect a high-scoring affair.

Penalty specialists

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 Monaco and PSG (12 each) that racked up the most penalties across last season.

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.

Andy Delort and Gaetan Labarde scored the most headed goals in Ligue 1 last season with seven each.

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.

The man to lead the charts last season, incidentally, was Memphis Depay, who took 110 shots last season, though he looks set to join Barcelona. Kylian Mbappe was second with 104.

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 Laurent Abergel with 145, followed by Aurelien Tchouameni with 127.


If recent events have taught us anything — and yes, we mean that PSG/Marseille game in September 2020 — 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.

Players offside

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.

Corners taken

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.
