The Betpal Football Bet of the Day dips it’s toe into the waters of French football for the betting tip on Friday. Rennes face Lille, and one particular betting market appears to be out of step with the relative strengths and weaknesses of both clubs.

Football Bet of the Day Lille

Match: Renne v Lille
Bet of the Day: Over 2.5 Goals
Best Odds: 2.27 with Betfair

The Unders and Overs market looks to offer a few points of value in the Rennes v Lille clash. Neither defence look water tight, and the goals have generally flowed in Rennes home games – three of the four competitive fixtures have seen three of more goals. In total, five of the seven matches that the hosts have played in have finished overs. Lille’s record is more balanced, with three going ‘under’ and three ‘over’. Neither team however, have managed a clean sheet this term, and therefore goals look likely with two generous defences going toe-to-toe. Yet the best price on this match seeing three or more goals is a large chunk over evens and that represents some solid value.
