Ligue 1 matches involving the hosts have not been short of action this season and our tipster is backing yet more strikes in this 9/5 (2.80) pick

The 35 goals featured in Marseille’s eight Ligue 1 games this season is more than any other side and more of the same could be on the cards when they host Caen on Sunday.

Les Phoceens have sit fifth in the table after scoring 19 of those 35, whilst their opponents are tenth after ending a three-match winless run with victory over Amiens last week.

Understandably, 888Sport make Marseille 33/100 (1.33) favourites to take the points whilst their visitors can be backed at 7/1 (8.0).

Only one of the last nine league meetings between the sides has ended in a draw and that result is priced at 17/4 (5.25).

Whilst the hosts should claim victory, that 33/100 (1.33) is too short for a single bet and the obvious play here is goals. On top of the 35 strikes featured in Marseille’s games, Caen’s have seen 21.

More than two goals can be backed at just 4/6 (1.67) and would have paid out in every one of Marseille’s matches this term, but perhaps more value can be had in over 3.5 at a very appealing 9/5 (2.80).

This is a joint-industry best price and is certainly worth considering for those looking for a bet outside the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

All but one of the hosts’ fixtures have seen more than three goals and given that Caen have kept just two clean sheets all season, there is little to suggest we won’t see yet more excitement.

As well, the visitors have scored in each of their last seven matches and in six of their last seven on the road dating back to last season, so they should also contribute to a high-scoring game against Marseille’s leaky defence.

The 16 goals that Rudi Garcia’s team have conceded is the second-most - with only basement team Guingamp shipping more - making the 9/5 (2.80) on over 3.5 goals excellent value.
