Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Reims and PSG. Reims have lost three of their last five league encounters but could end the season on a high and move up to seventh with a win on Friday night, depending on how other results go over the course of the evening.
PSG, meanwhile, have already wrapped up the league title and scored over 100 goals this season. Having won their two most recent matches in Ligue 1 they could round off the campaign with a hat-trick to really exert their dominance over their domestic rivals.
And it is of no surprise to see that it is PSG who come into this match as the clear favourites to take the points. You can back the visitors to win t just 1.40 while Reims, despite home advantage, are out at 7.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.75, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting PSG to record a victory with relative comfort. A 2-0 in for the league champions comes in at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can triple your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 3.00.
Lille face tough trip to Rennes
Meanwhile, Rennes welcome high flying Lille on the final night of the season. Rennes are unbeaten in their last four league games although they have won just one of those, and three points on home soil would be a satisfying conclusion to the campaign.
Lille, by way of comparison, have been the surprise package of this Ligue 1 season and have made second place their own. They are unbeaten in their last eight matches and can come into this final contest absolutely brimming with confidence after an excellent few months.
And while the betting is very tight, it is indeed Lille who come into the match as the slight favourites to take all three points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.50, while Rennes come in just higher at 2.62 – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.50.
And we are expecting home advantage to be a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 win for Rennes is priced competitively at 10.00, thereby offering a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Rennes win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.33.
Lyon head to Nimes on final day
And finally, Nimes host Lyon on the final day of the season. Nimes are unbeaten in their last three outings and sit seventh, although they will not be able to finish any higher this term.
Lyon, by way of comparison, are unbeaten in their last five league outings, winning four of them, as they end the season strongly. They cannot finish any higher than third but five wins from six at the end of the campaign would lay down a serious marker of intent for next season.
And it is indeed Lyon who come into this match as the clear favourites to take the points. You can back the visitors to win at just 1.90 while Nimes, despite home advantage, are out at 3.80 to do the same – a draw comes in just under at 3.60.
And we are expecting Lyon to carry on their recent form. A comfortable, 3-1 win for the away side comes in at 13.00, while you can more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Lyon win, coupled with both teams to score, at 3.10.
