France Ligue 2 – Troyes v Beziers Preview (10/8/18)

Match Preview

Troyes have both won and lost a game so far. I won’t hold it against them too much last week because Brest are are one of the best away teams in the division and should be up there in the promotion mixer. A home fixture facing Beziers should be much more manageable and I’m willing to back them on the nose to win. If I’m being totally honest I’m not 100% convinced about Troyes here, but the price is just too good to refuse. The line on ESTAC should be close to -1 Asian, but instead we can get nearly even money on them just to win outright! Beziers haven’t looked too bad to me so far, but they have faced Nancy and Ajaccio - neither of whom are great offensively. Troyes should test them much more tonight with the likes of Benjamin Nivet and Chaouki Ben Saada pulling the strings. I respect Beziers a bit, but not too much and for some reason Troyes are underrated by the bookies tonight. I hate taking -0.5 lines because it’s all or nothing - you either win or lose but I can’t ignore this price.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet 1 unit: Troyes -0.5 @1.93
