French League Cup Betting: Nice vs. Lyon


Another day of French League Cup action takes place on Wednesday as storied club Olympique Lyonnais hit the road to face OGC Nice. Here are the odds for the game.

The home side, Nice, is coming into Cup action after a harsh start to the Ligue 1 campaign. It currently sits in 16th spot with only a single win to show from 10 matches. Besides its 4-2 win over Stade Brestois in its prior Cup round match, Nice has not won since another victory against Brestois, a stretch lasting five matches.

The host's defence has not been up to snuff as it has conceded at least a goal in every match in all competitions this season, with the exception of a 0-0 bore draw back in matchday 2.

The draw result is being offerred roughly the same at 3.20 over at the same betting firm.

The visiting Lyon squad is being offered at a decent rate of 2.26 in the outright market. It is off to a great start to the Ligue season, with a record of 5-1-3 (W-L-T), and the team is currently four points out of top spot with a game in hand.  Lyon's one loss is the only time it has lost in any competition thus far, which includes a game in the French Cup, three in Europa League and nine in Ligue 1.

Lyon is also the defending tournament champion.

It was able to defeat Spanish side Atletico Bilbao in Europa League action last week while its much-anticipated tilt with Marseille was postponed from this weekend, so the visitors will be a little rested for this contest.

Expect Lyon to score in this game given Nice's shady defence. I like the over 2.5 at 2.10, and consideration should be given to the handicap of -1 for Lyon, in which the handicap draw pays out 3.95, while Lyon to win by a pair goes up to 4.45.
