NOTHING better than a full midweek French Ligue 2 card and yet again I feel the bookies are being more than generous with their Total Goals line set extremely low.
There are 9 games tonight and like Fridays night's winning French goals total you only need a few games to be high scoring to have a chance (Niort 4-4 Paris a prime example).
Talking about goals, Lommel Reserves delivered us another terrific set of winners yesterday as they crashed 4-2 at Union Saints. 103 goals in 18 games now I make it Lommel. Keep an eye out for them
As well as Total Goals, I'll be on the usual first half goals and 1.5 match goals specials at huge odds.
French Ligue Total Goals – 9 matches (8.05pm)
As you'll know I'm a huge fan of the Total Goals market and although Sky Bet offer it every day, it's all about getting the right fixtures and a fair target and tonight meets both those criteria.
Top side Lorient host fourth-bottom Le Mans, a side with the worst defensive record in the league against a side with the best attack in the league. The league leaders are in sensational form and a return to Ligue 1 is theirs to throw away.
They've won 8 of their last 9 with those matches seeing 5 /4/ 3/ 4/ 1/ 3 / 3/ 3/ 4/ goals scored with 22 of the 30 being claimed by them.
Third-top Ajaccio are at basement side Paris who just shipped 4 goals at struggling Niort and these two games alone could set us well on out way to beating the Sky Bet Total Goals line.
Typically, with 9 matches being played, you'd expect the goal line to be set at around 26+ or 27+ for around 5/6 but they always price up Ligue 2 really low, so instead of it being 26+ / 27+ they are offering us 20+ at 4/5 which I think is worth snapping up.
That's only 2.2 goals per game needed and with 9 games, you can almost certainly be sure at least two or three of them will see 3+ and 4+goals.
It's an incredibly generous goal line for 9 matches and should be taken on, especially given some of the fixtures. There will likely be a couple of low scorers but that's fine with other matches picking up the slack.
- 20+ goals to be scored
- 4/5 (Skybet) (NAP)
- 22+ goals to be scored
- 13/8 (Skybet)
As always I'll be on over 0.5 first-half goals in all 9 matches and that pays 50/1 (could be more elsewhere) and over 1.5 goals in all 9 matches pays a massive 33/1. I'm also going to take 28+ goals at 16/1 for small stake.
