Ligue 1 Odds
Ligue 1 odds are calculated on the probability of something happening.
For example, the odds of Paris Saint-Germain winning Ligue 1 are much shorter than the odds of Troyes, simply because the probability of Paris Saint-Germain winning Ligue 1 is much higher.
If Paris Saint-Germain win Ligue 1 after you placed a £10 bet on them to do so at 1/10, you would win £1. But if Troyes win Ligue 1 after you placed a £10 bet on them to do so at 2,000/1, you would win £20,000.
Ligue 1 odds for individual games are often short, especially when betting on Paris Saint-Germain, so a smart way of increasing the odds is through accumulator betting.
More commonly referred to as an ‘acca’, accumulator betting is when you bet on two or more Ligue 1 games – betting on five teams is known as a ‘five-fold’ – but combine them into one bet. You can use our free acca bet calculator to save time in your manual calculations.
Because the odds are multiplied, you’ll win an enhanced amount if all the selections in your acca are correct.

Ligue 1 2022/23 Overview
The Ligue 1 2022/23 season will be played from Saturday 6th August 2022 to Sunday 4th June 2023. There will be a six-week break in November to allow the 2022 World Cup to be played, with Ligue 1 fixtures resuming on Tuesday 27th December.
Ligue 1 is made up of 20 teams, with each team playing the other 19 teams at home and away for a grand total of 38 games.
Paris Saint-Germain are odds-on favourites to win Ligue 1, having won the title in eight of the last 10 seasons. Lyon, Marseille and Monaco are considered the teams most likely to challenge PSG, with Lille’s Ligue 1 triumph a couple of seasons ago proof that a surprise winner is possible.
At the opposite end of the table, Troyes, Lorient, Auxerre, Clermont Foot, Ajaccio, Brest and Stade Reims are the teams the bookies expect to fight it out to avoid relegation, according to the latest pre-season odds.
Kylian Mbappe is primed to once again finish as the top goalscorer in Ligue 1.
Mbappe won the golden boot last season with 28 goals, which was four more than Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yadder. Mbappe’s PSG team-mates Neymar and Lionel Messi could also run him close.
