Ligue 1 odds are mostly gridlocked at this 2021-22 season progresses. At the top, it's just powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain continuing to reign as heavy odds-on-favorites.
Lille's title defense was already likely to be hugely difficult, and it's now near impossible, as they're 21 points back of PSG despite having success in Europe while struggling domestically this season.
Here are the latest Ligue 1 futures odds to win the league outright.

Favorite to win the French Ligue 1 Championship
Paris Saint-Germain (-5,000)
PSG continue to run away with Ligue 1 and have built a nearly insurmountable lead in the table, 10 points ahead of Nice through 22 games. That success has them atop the odds board at a ridiculous -5,000, despite Lionel Messi yet to truly establish his presence in the French league.
The rest of the field
From there, it's a steep drop to Marseille at +3,500. Marseille did well to draw with PSG earlier this season but it is clear that the race in Ligue 1 is about Champions League places, with the title all but over.
Nice has gained separation on the odds board and are alone as the third favorite at +5,000. Nice recently defeated Rennes in a game that could prove crucial for European qualification and leapfrogged them in the table as well after matchweek 19.
Past Ligue 1 Champions

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.
