      Tip Reasoning

      Lorient and Caen each started the Ligue 1 season with securing their top flight survival as a primary objective. One of the best ways to achieve that goal is to get off to a strong start and to get some points up on the board as early as possible. It’s looking good right now, both teams ride two-game winning streaks into their Wednesday night match-up.

      Consistency isn’t there, but Lorient have a little something working for them right now. They opened the season with battling draws against Lyon and Bastia and then lost a couple of games, but in their last two match-ups, they’ve shown some pretty good quality going forward scoring three goals against both Angers and Monaco.

      They were especially impressive on their recent trip to Monaco. Purists will point towards the control that Monaco mostly enjoyed, but Lorient were extremely efficient and effective when they had the ball and it paid dividends. They will also have been extremely pleased with the way in which the team found a way to score the winning goal after giving up a 2-0 lead.

      Caen surprised a few people with back-to-back wins against Marseille and Toulouse to open the season. They’ve now done enough to prove that those results were not flukes winning their most recent games against Troyes and Montpellier. They’ve won four of their first six games and have the look of a team that should enjoy a relatively comfortable mid-table life this campaign.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Lorient emotionally deflated

      It just feels like their might be a little bit of a let down for this team after the dramatic and impressive win over Monaco away from home. There were plenty of positives that they can take forward from that win, but Caen are a dangerous opponent to take lightly.

      2. Defensive smothering

      Lorient have been at their most impressive when they haven’t had to push the pace and control the flow of the game. Caen present a tricky match-up in that regard.

      3. Sizing up the best betting options

      The +0.5 Asian Handicap brings back a slightly better return than the Double Chance option. It’s not easy to size up the scoring in this game, recent history makes BTTS and Over 2.5 Goals tempting, but we still think both teams play a defensive style fundamentally.
