France Ligue 2 – Niort v Valenciennes Preview (4/12/18)

Match Preview

There is a clash of styles here as the more cautious Niort take on Valenciennes, who often end up getting involved in some higher scoring contests. Valenciennes can be so wide open sometimes, it's just a question of whether Niort can take advantage of that here. My instinct tells me that this will be an attractive game containing goals, but the bookies have factored this in by offering quite a skinny looking over 2.25 line. The last four Niort games have ended 1-0 0-0 0-1 and 1-0 and they have been no stranger to lower scoring contests under new head coach Patrice Lair - they can defend. The best value is probably on Niort -0.25 close to the 1.85 mark. According to my estimations Les Chamois should be odds-on to win this match really so we are getting a whole full line value. Valenciennes have a terrible 1-1-5 away record and concede a bucket load of goals on a regular basis. The more effective unit in Niort can prevail here.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: Niort -0.25 @1.85
