Ligue 1 Title Odds: PSG Comfortable In Ligue 1

PSG are comfortably ahead in Ligue 1 Title Odds

Paris Saint-Germain put an end to a two-match winless streak by beating Monaco 2-0 last week, and their Ligue 1 title odds continue to be far and away from any other team in the league.

Their closest competitors on the table, Olympique Marseille, also bounced back after a loss to Brest at the start of the month, posting a comfortable 2-0 win away against Strasbourg. Their Ligue 1 title odds are on the shorter side, relatively speaking, but keep them far away from PSG. The Ligue 1 title odds reflect what is a foregone conclusion: No one in this league can dream of matching up to PSG at this point.

According to BetOnline Sportsbook Ligue 1 title odds, PSG are favored heavily with odds of -10000, shortened from -5000 in the middle of November. They are followed by Marseille (+2500), Rennes (+4000) and Lille (+5000).

Monaco continue to be off the radar in the Ligue 1 title odds, and are ranked seventh with odds of +8000. PSG currently lead second-placed Marseille by 13 points at the top of the table despite a recent blip in results, although Marseille have a game in hand.

Favorites To Win Ligue 1

The Ligue 1 title odds tell the same story.

PSG (-10000)

Once again, local reports in Paris suggest serious disarray in the PSG dressing room – there are reportedly cliques battling it out, the South American players on one side and the French ones on the other.

Coupled with all the speculation around Kylian Mbappe’s contract, Mauricio Pochettino reportedly eyeing the Manchester United job, and the media drama around Zinedine Zidane potentially coaching at PSG, there is significant external pressure on the team.

But it is a super team of such stature and individual quality that there really has been no way that it has translated onto the field. At the start of December, PSG drew two matches in a row, one of them a goalless affair.

All that really did was shave a couple of points off their course for the title, but they’re still comfortably placed with a 13-point cushion at the top of the table. In the Ligue 1 betting odds, they are 12500 points clear of the next-best rival.

Nonetheless, they would have enjoyed the 2-0 win against Monaco. Monaco did run them tight, however. PSG had 53 percent of the possession and a passing accuracy of 87 percent, but they only got two of their nine shots on target.

Monaco, in comparison, had 13 goal attempts and three of them on target, in a game they could have seized on another day. The quality of those chances, however, wasn’t anything to threaten PSG. The expected goals (xG) metric had the game at 1.90-0.82 in PSG’s favor.

Outside Contenders To Win Ligue 1

Marseille (+2500)

The Ligue 1 betting odds haven’t been as kind to other teams this season as they currently are for Marseille. However, it would take a miraculous run of form and other results falling into place for them to come close to catching up with PSG.

There was one such marginal chance, when PSG drew two games in a row. Marseille won one of those corresponding fixtures and lost the other, a luxury you simply don’t have when you’re playing in this league and want to contend for the title.

Marseille still have a game in hand, but those dropped three points means the farthest they can reduce their deficit now is 10 points. If they’d capitalized on that slip-up, however, it still wouldn’t make a world of difference. Seven-point gaps are also extremely hard to overcome against PSG in this league.

Marseille are currently reliant on their defence – their 14 goals conceded is the lowest in the league. But among the top 10 teams, Marseille have the second-lowest scoring record with 25 goals in 17 games. It would take a change in that scoring rate for them to keep up their challenge to the very end.

Rennes (+4000)

Rennes are another team that dropped the ball when PSG were struggling to get wins. Like Marseille, they won one and lost one in the corresponding fixtures. But unlike Marseille, they do not have a game in hand.

However, their Ligue 1 title odds offer bigger rewards for a team that is more or less on the same level as Marseille; but they are by no means title favorites at this point. The game they didn’t have in hand, their 18th, was a cagey affair against Nice that ended in a loss despite their utter dominance of the game.

Rennes had 67 percent possession, 21 goal attempts and eight shots on target while bossing the midfield on a day they completed 595 passes against Nice’s 311. Still, it was Nice who came out 2-1 winners. What you can gauge from that performance is that Rennes are likely to do better than Marseille on the scoring front – they already have 33 goals from 18 games, conceding 16 – over the season, and have a defensive record that can match them.

Like Marseille, they are a shot in the dark for title betting. But at these odds, if you’re willing to take a shot in the dark, then you can perhaps back the more lucrative option of two similar teams.

Betting Strategy For Ligue 1 2021-22

It is pretty straightforward in this league. The Ligue 1 title odds suggest a runaway victory for PSG and there is no solid reason to not trust that. Marseille and Rennes – and Nice to some extent – are challengers but you’re better off backing them in markets like the top four or top six.

Odds Shark will return in January for a monthly update to the Ligue 1 title odds. Till then, there are plenty of other soccer betting opportunities around European domestic leagues.
