Betting Tips for Today: Plenty of value in opposing goals as Toulouse face Saint-Etienne

Both teams look much stronger at the back than they do going forward and a recent history of low-scoring encounters means a 3/4 (1.75) shot appeals

Neutrals seeking an entertaining encounter on Tuesday are advised to skip over Toulouse's clash with Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 but there is a worthwhile bet to consider.

The hosts have taken 11 points from their opening six games, an impressive start and they're 29/20 (2.45) with 888Sport to secure another win here.

Saint-Etienne meanwhile, are only two points worse off than their high-flying hosts and can be backed at 39/20 (2.95) with the draw available at 21/10 (3.10) with the same firm.

Despite solid openings to the new domestic season, goals have proved hard to come by as far as these two sides are concerned.

Toulouse have only netted six goals in as many games thus far and Saint-Etienne rank even lower in that metric with just five strikes to their name.

Both sides though, have only conceded seven times each and that focus on defensive stability highlights a bet. It's not only backed up by their recent displays but also by the historical meetings between the teams.

"No" on both teams to score is 3/4 (1.75) with 888Sport and that looks like a very solid selection at Stadium Municipal.

This bet is paid out as a winner if one or both teams fail to score a goal over the course of 90 minutes. Given under 2.5 goals is just 11/20 (1.55) this market offers much more attractive potential returns while still capitalising on the trend.

This selection has landed in each of the previous five head-to-head clashes. What's more, three of those games have finished in 0-0 draws. Of the 12 combined matches these teams have contested this season, three of them have also ended the same way.

Another goalless game is available at 13/2 (7.50) with 888Sport and that could be worth a smaller stake but 3/4 (1.75) on at least one side failing to score looks the best bet.
