Ligue 1 predictions and betting tips: Best bets for Sunday

The 2017-18 Ligue 1 season has reached its 16th round of matches on the weekend of December 1-3, and we have picked out the best bet available on each of Sunday’s three games.

All matches are available to watch and bet on live in-play at William Hill > Live Streaming

St Etienne v Nantes – Draw @ 21/10 with BetVictor (14:00 GMT kick-off)


Claudio Ranieri made an almost Leicester-like start to his reign with Nantes before a blip when they lost four matches out of five, but they got back on track with an excellent 1-0 home win over Monaco on Wednesday.

We are not saying Ranieri will get anywhere near to winning the title like he did with Leicester, but he is clearly maintaining the improvement Nantes have made over the last couple of years and they should be capable of taking a point at St Etienne.

The home side are stuck in mid-table after a run of seven games without a win, but they are scoring more goals than they used to and that should enable them to deny Nantes a victory.


Caen/Draw double chance at home to Lyon @ Evens with MarathonBet (16:00 GMT kick-off)


Lyon’s strong run of form that comprised seven consecutive clean sheets and eight victories out of nine was ended in midweek and they could be denied again when they visit Caen.

Beaten 2-1 at home by Lille, Bruno Genesio’s side now visit a club who have been keeping things very tight on their own pitch this season with only two teams holding a better home defensive record.

This looks likely to be a tight encounter and that should enable Caen to continue their push for European football next term by adding another point, or even three, to their tally.


Montpellier v Marseille – Away win @ 13/10 with William Hill (20:00 GMT kick-off)


With Paris Saint-Germain already 10 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table, the more fascinating race is for which team will chase them home and Marseille moved into second spot by winning easily at Metz in midweek.

L’OM spent comparatively big in the summer and the investment is starting to pay off, for they are unbeaten in their last 10 domestic matches, picking up 24 points from a possible 30.

Montpellier, the shock 2011-12 champions, are enjoying a decent campaign themselves so far, but with former Newcastle playmaker Florian Thauvin pulling the strings, Marseille are in such good form that they are difficult to oppose to register another success.
