Toulouse v Montpellier Betting Tips

18:00/Nov 30 '16

Sports betting writer Bradley Gibbs outlines three worthwhile bets ahead of Wednesday’s Ligue 1 match between Toulouse and Montpellier. 

Toulouse play host to Montpellier on Wednesday night as two teams – both of whom probably aren’t in as lofty a position as they would like – who’ve performed fairly well so far this season go head-to-head.

Of the two, it is Toulouse who’ve impressed most, although Montpellier, especially in recent weeks, have shown that they can be more than competitive against the bigger teams and thus we should be in for a decent encounter here.

Defence has been the main problem for Montpellier throughout the campaign so far, while Toulouse, who managed to keep things tight during the early weeks, have also struggled at the back of late. With this in mind, coupled with the fact that both are useful going forward, goals are expected in this fixture.

For starters, there are two selections that catch the eye. These are ‘Both Teams to Score’ and ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ at 10/11 and 11/10 respectively.

The rather kamikaze nature of Montpellier’s play this season has generally invited goals at both ends and there seems to be no good reason why this should fail to continue here. The visitors have conceded more goals (27) than anyone else in the division this season; however, having found the net on 20 occasions, they’ve also outscored all but four teams. As for the hosts, Toulouse may have only conceded 13 times, but they’ve been having trouble keeping goals out in recent weeks. The home side have kept just one clean sheet in their last five, letting in a total of six goals in that time.

Both teams have scored in eight of Toulouse’s 14 matches this season, while Montpellier, unsurprisingly, have both scored and conceded in 11 of their 14. On top of this, both teams found the net in five of Toulouse’s six at home, while Montpellier are yet to play away without both scoring and conceding. In addition, more than two goals were scored in five out of six home matches played by Toulouse, while Montpellier have seen at least three goals in five out of their seven on the road.

The visitors’ style this season seems to be one where outscoring the opponent is the aim – recent scorelines of 3-1, 2-2, 6-2, 3-2 and 3-3 are good examples of this.

With goals looking very much on the cards in this fixture, the combination bet of ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’, at odds of 11/8, is a nice addition to the two selections above.

All things considered, this is expected to be an open contest. Montpellier play an attacking game and often get their opponent to engage with them in doing this, while Toulouse need a win and will no doubt fancy their chances of really getting at a Montpellier back-line that has kept zero clean sheets on the road this season. Goals are expected and, by the time the two sides walk off the pitch at Stadium Municipal, punters are likely to be rewarded for taking this view.
