Sunday’s Bet Of The Day: Marseille to make mincemeat out of Ligue 1 strugglers


JACK Wright's (@JackWright_BSB) brand new Bet of the Day continues on Sunday as we head to France…

Marseille vs Dijon | Sunday 4th April 2021, 20:00 | BT Sport

The eye-catching appointment of former Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli may have just come in time to rescue Marseille’s season.

A pre international break defeat at Nice dampened spirits after back-to-back wins but a return to home soil should also see a return to winning ways.

A respectable draw with Lyon followed by victories over Rennes and Brest are a decent trio of results at Stade Velodrome since the Argentinian’s arrival and those opponents all represented tougher assignments than this Sunday’s visitors.

Dijon sit rock bottom of Ligue 1 with just two wins and 15 points to their name from their opening 30 fixtures needing to bridge a gap of 15 points to escape the relegation zone – a run of 10 straight league defeats hardly inspires confidence.

David Linarés’ side have conceded an average of 1.70 goals per game this season but that has risen alarmingly to 2.40 over that losing streak and Les Phoceens “should” have far too much for them here as they look to claim one of those European qualification positions of which they currently sit one place outside.

With the price understandably short for a home win, I am adding Over 1 Goal via the Bet Builder to give us nice looking odds of 17/20 – adding just over 1 Marseille goal actually gives slightly smaller odds of 5/6 if you were wondering why I did it that way.

Having had a passion for football for as long as I can remember – I’m talking Shoot League Ladders here – one of my first “bets” is still my biggest win. After begging my mum to let me fill in her pools coupon so I could show off my knowledge, eight draws later and a cheque for £11,500 was soon in the post. As a Norwich fan it’s important to have a good grasp of what’s going on in the lower leagues and I also like exploring those less popular leagues to have a delve into any stats-based markets that are available. Right now, I’m particularly enjoying player bets. Outside of sport, I love eating and drinking - maybe a little too much - as well as listening to a varied spectrum of music, both from the comfort of my own home and at festivals.
