Lens - Rennes betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 21:00 on 08/01/2022 played @ Stade Bollaert-Delelis refereed by Benoît Bastien

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.88. Lens will indeed find it very hard to beat Rennes here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Despite playing away, Rennes are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.50, we’re in for a close game.

Lens fans were quite hopeful during the half-time break in the previous round. The team managed to snatch an early lead against Nice , who are a considerably stronger team. Lens couldn’t hold on to their advantage in the second half, however, resulting in a narrow away loss (2:1).

The top online bookmakers considered Rennes to be clear underdogs in their previous match against Monaco, so the away loss is no surprise. Still, they maintained an even score until half-time and only lost by a 1-goal difference (2:1).

With more than 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 fixtures, Lens’s performance leaves something to be desired. That said, savvy punters could be able to exploit this – think BTTS or Over 5 Goals markets, for example.

You may want to look at Rennes as good candidates for markets like BTTS bets or Over 5 Goals. They have more than 5 goals on record from their previous 3 games alone.

Lens are sitting at 9th at the moment, three places behind European positions. Such a result is not too bad in this stage of the season. They’ll need another 4 points if they want to play European football next season, but the road ahead is long and difficult.

Rennes kicked the season off on a high note, but there are plenty more challenges ahead. This showdown on Saturday is the first, and it won’t be an easy one. Keeping their current position at 4th will be hard enough, and they likely want to try and climb the ranks as well.

Despite being favourites, Rennes couldn’t manage to secure a victory the last time they played against Lens. This gives the hosts some precedent when it comes to beating the odds, but it’s not a strong case.

We’re in for an exciting showdown – due to a complete lack of suspensions or injuries, both teams have their full lineups at their disposal. Because they are more likely to win, though, this should work out in the visitors’ advantage.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 1.91 if you use the bet365 sportsbook.
