It's a two-horse race for the Ligue 1 title, and PSG is three points clear at the top. A win at home against Bordeaux will give the Parisians a temporary bit of breathing room.
Paris St. Germain is the heavy favourite heading into Friday's encounter with Bordeaux. The power and lure of Zlatan Imbrahimovic and Edinson Cavani up front is always attractive to bettors, and as such the hosts are paying out a very low 1.25 in the 1x2 market. Even the double result is only at 1.70.
The hosts are on top of the table in France and are undefeated at home, producing a mark of 8-0-3 so far. But it's not just the fact that they're undefeated at Parc des Princes, it's how bad they've beaten visiting opposition. PSG has scored an average of three goals per game at home (33 in total), while conceding only five.
The Parisians are itching for a win after dropping valuable points in last week's away draw to lowly Guincamp, and taking all three points on Friday would see them defeat Bordeaux for the fourth straight time.
They also defeated Bordeaux in Cup play two weeks ago with a 3-1 away result.
The PSG win with both teams to score is at a more respectable 3.40 over at William Hill. I like this value selection of all the home options.
A draw is listed at a massive 5.50, but even more eye-popping is the 13.00 for Bordeaux to pull off the upset.
The visitors from wine country are actually a respectable 9-6-7 this seaosn, and they currently sit in seventh in the table. They have been hurt on the road with a 2-6-2 record, but they've been good enough for a goal per away match.
For correct scorer markets it's obvious that Ibra and Cavani are the favourites. They've combined for a total of 30 goals between them and sit first and second in the league goal scoring charts. As a result they are offered at 1.57 and 1.73, respecively, to score in Friday's match.
