2021–22 Ligue 1 Title Odds – PSG Is Comfortable in the French Ligue

2021 22 Ligue 1 Title Odds Psg Is Comfortable In The Ligue

Last week, PSG ended its 2-game winless streak in a 2-0 win over Monaco. Their title odds for Ligue 1 are still way ahead of any other league’s teams.

Their nearest competitors, Olympique Marseille, have also seen a return to success after losing to Brest at the beginning of this month, winning comfortably against Strasbourg with a score of 2-0. Their title odds for Ligue 1 may be slightly shorter, but they’re still far from PSG. Their title odds for Ligue 1 reflect something that’s already a foregone conclusion – nobody in the league can even dream of catching up with PSG now.

Popular football sportsbooks are giving PSG heavily favoured odds of -10000, which have shortened since November from -5000. Marseille is next up, with odds of +2500, then Rennes is next with odds of +4000, followed by Lille on +5000.

Monaco is still down on the odds listings, ranking 7th with odds at +8000. Currently, PSG is leading 2nd-placed Marseille by an impressive 13 points, regardless of their recent blip, although Marseille still has one game in hand.

Who Are the Favourites to Win the League?

All of the Ligue 1 title odds tell an identical story:

PSG

Again, reports from Paris have suggested that there’s some major disarray inside PSG’s dressing room. Cliques are reportedly battling against each other, with French players pitting themselves against South Americans.

Paired with the speculation surrounding Kylian Mbappe and his contract, the reported eyeing-up by Mauricio Pochettino of the job at Man U, and, of course, all of the drama in the media surrounding whether or not Zinedine Zidane will be coaching PSG. There’s a whole lot of external pressure being exerted in the team.

However, the team has such individual quality and stature that the discord still hasn’t found its way onto the field. PSG drew 2 of their matches consecutively at the beginning of the month, one being goalless, but all that did was take a few points away from their title course. The team is still placed very comfortably with a lead of 13 points at the head of the league table. Regarding Ligue 1’s betting odds, PSG is a whole 12500 points ahead of their nearest rival.

Regardless, they’d have enjoyed their 2-0 win over Monaco, although they were run right by the other team. PSG had 53% ball possession, with an 87% passing accuracy, but only 2 out of 9 shots were on target.

In comparison, Monaco made 13 attempts at a goal with 3 on target – they’d have taken the game on any other day. Those chances’ quality wasn’t serious enough to threaten Paris Saint Germain – the xG (Expected Goals) metric put the game in PSG’s favour at 1.90-0.82.

Who Are the Outside Contenders?

Marseille

Ligue 1’s betting odds haven’t been so kind this season to the other teams as they are currently for Marseille. But, it would still require a run of form that would be nothing short of miraculous, and the other results all falling perfectly into place if they were to get anywhere near catching PSG now.

Marseille has a match still in hand. The 3 points they dropped means that the most their deficit can now be reduced is 10 points. Still, if they had capitalised on the slip-up, it wouldn’t have made a lot of difference. Gaps of 7 points are very difficult to overcome in the Ligue 1 against PSG.

Currently, Marseille is relying heavily on the defence – their 14 conceded goals are the lowest in the league. Yet, Marseille’s scoring record is the 2nd lowest – 25 goals across 17 games of all the top 10 teams. A major change in their scoring rate would be needed if they would maintain their challenge right up to the bitter end.

Rennes

The Rennes team also missed their opportunity to get ahead when PSG struggled to obtain a win. Like Marseille, Rennes won one of their fixtures and lost the other. However, unlike Marseille, Rennes doesn’t have a match in hand.

Their title odds for Ligue 1 offer larger rewards, and the team is on an identical footing to Marseille. Still, they’re far from being favourites for the title right now. Their 18th game was a ropey affair versus Nice, which ended up with a loss, even though they utterly dominated the game with 67% possession, 21 attempts at the goal, and 8 on-target shots, all the while commanding the midfield as they completed an impressive 595 passes versus Nice’s 311.

Nevertheless, Nice came out of the game as a winner with a 2-1. From this performance, we can gauge that Marseille will probably not do as well as Rennes when it comes to scoring – Rennes already has 33 goals across 18 games and has conceded 16 during the season, with a record on defence that is capable of matching them. Similar to Marseille, they’re an outside chance if you’re betting on the title, but with such great odds, if you want to go for an outsider, it might be best to back this option which is more lucrative than the other similar team.
