2021-22 French Ligue 1 Title Odds: PSG's Lead Now Out-of-Hand

Paris Saint-Germain were already heavy Ligue 1 title odds favorites after a disappointing runner-up finish in 2020. Then they added Lionel Messi to a loaded team and started off 8-0-0. PSG (-3,500) are clearly at the top of the latest Ligue 1 outright odds

Ligue 1 title odds are up for the 2021-22 season, but French league powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain may have already put them out of reach as they seek their eighth title in ten seasons.

Their status as heavy favorites was bolstered after Lionel Messi's shocking exit from Barcelona, as the star-studded lineup has already jumped out to a perhaps-insurmountable lead.

Here are the latest Ligue 1 futures odds to win the league outright:

Favorite to win the French Ligue 1 Championship 

It's finally happened. PSG have suffered a loss in Ligue 1 play, falling 2-0 to Rennes. Despite the setback, the stacked Paris roster still enjoys a very cushy lead atop the Ligue 1 table and remains massive -3,500 favorites to reclaim the title. 

From there, it's a steep drop to Monaco at +2,500, riding a four-game unbeaten streak in league play since falling to Marseille last month. They still have ground to make up in the table, however, sitting sixth overall.

Defending champs Lille rise to third at +2,800, winning their past three matches, including a 2-0 blanking of Marseille in Watchweek 9.

Lyon currently have the fourth-best odds at +3,500. After tangling with PSG a couple of weeks ago, Lyon will have a serious litmus test over the next few weeks, taking on Nice, Lens and Marseille – all currently ahead of them in the table – in three of their next four league matches.

Marseille round out the Top 5 on both the odds board and table, sitting with +5,000 outright odds. Clearly, sportsbooks are counting on only a very faint possibility of another club catching PSG.

Understanding Ligue 1 betting odds

Ligue 1 futures odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason due to player transfers and injuries. Once the season begins, title odds will change as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt or suspended. Sportsbooks will also adjust Ligue 1 odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.

French soccer odds will usually look like this:

  • Marseille +715

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $715 if Marseille wins the Ligue 1 Championship. If it's close to the end of the competition (or in the case of a massive early-season favorite) you might see a team with a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds. 

  • Paris Saint-Germain -717

This means that you would need to bet $717 to win just $100 on a PSG championship.
