Ligue 1 winner without PSG odds: Lyon Ligue 1 Odds

Once the biggest club in France, Olympique Lyonnais have watched PSG become Ligue 1’s most dominant side, with Les Gones without a league title in over a decade. Having won eight consecutive championships between 2001 and 2008, Lyon have suffered a fall from grace in recent years, yet have impressed on the continental stage.

Reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2010, a side bursting with talent, including Hugo Lloris, Miralem Pjanić and Bafétimbi Gomis were beaten comfortably by Bayern Munich across both legs.

Fast forward 10 years and history repeated itself once more, as the pair met at the same stage of the competition, with the Bundesliga giants prevailing yet again. Lyon return to European football this season, but their 4th place finish in the 2020/21 campaign meant it would be the Europa League they’d compete in.

Heading into the new season without former talisman and captain, Memphis Depay, new boss Peter Bosz will have his work cut out in the South of France. Yet, should the eight-time champions manage to fend off interest around Houssem Aouar and Maxwell Cornet, money could be made with the 5/4 shout for Lyon to finish top of a PSG-less Ligue 1 table.

Ligue 1 winner without PSG odds: Lille Ligue 1 Odds

Reigning champions heading into a Ligue 1 campaign for the first time since 2011, LOSC Lille’s hopes of retaining the title look slim after a summer of change at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Unlikely winners last time out, Lille lead for the majority of the season before clinching the title on a dramatic final day. Veteran Turkish striker, Burak Yilmaz netted his 16th goal of a fruitful campaign as Les Dogues saw off Angers to end PSG’s emphatic run of seven championships in eight seasons.

But after triumphant manager, Christophe Galtier announced his departure the morning after their title celebrations, the chances of a first-ever back-to-back title began to look unlikely. Questions remain over the appointment of Jocelyn Gourvennec, who has been out of work since 2019 when he was in charge of Guingamp’s first top-flight relegation in 15 years.

Should Lille overcome their critics and challenge at the top of Ligue 1 once again, they’ll require the likes of Yilmaz, Renato Sanches and Jonathan David to replicate the form which brought them silverware. Gourvennec’s men are 11/4 to be the best-placed side behind PSG in 2021/22.

Ligue 1 winner without PSG odds: Monaco Ligue 1 Odds

Before Lille toppled the Parisian club last season, Monaco were the only side other than PSG since 2013 to win the French title, triumphing in 2016/17. Under the tutelage of Leonardo Jardim, a side boasting talents such as Kylian Mbappe, Bernado Siva and Fabinho stormed to the Ligue 1 title, finishing eight points ahead of PSG. Without a doubt the club’s most exciting crop of players in a generation, Monaco were also able to impress on the European stage, reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 12 years.

Now managed by Niko Kovač, Monaco have once again impressed in France, finishing the season strong and qualifying for the Champions League play-offs. Taking on either Sparta Prague or Rapid Wien, Les Monégasques will progress to the group stage for the fourth consecutive year with a win in the third qualifying round.

With a healthy blend of experienced pros, like 34-year-old Cesc Fabregas and fledgling talents, such as France U18 midfielder, Enzo Millot, Kovač has assembled a side capable of challenging at the top once more. Without PSG in the equation, Monaco are 9/2 to finish the highest in Ligue 1.

Ligue 1 winner without PSG odds: Marseille Ligue 1 Odds

Once the envy of French football, Olympique Marseille remain the only French side to be crowned European champions, winning the Champions League in 1993.

After a disruptive 2020/21 campaign that saw a section of supporters storm the training ground in protest of the board’s management, Marseille were able to salvage a modest fifth-placed finish, securing a Europa League group stage position.

New manager Jorge Sampaoli will be hoping his side’s continental performances improve from the previous season, where Les Phocéens crashed out of their Champions League group without winning a single match.

The Argentine boss hasn’t wasted any time in making changes at the Stade Vélodrome, splashing the cash on a number of new signings. Amongst the arrivals is France U20 international, William Saliba who returns to Ligue 1 on loan from Arsenal, after spending last season with Nice.

Whilst Sampaoli isn’t renowned for calm and collective management, it’s unlikely Marseille’s season will come close to being as chaotic as it was last time out, with the club from France’s south coast 8/1 to be the best side not named PSG in the league this year.

Regular champions throughout the 1950s, OGC Nice may have seen their glory days come and go, but the plucky side from the South of France should not be written off.

Disappointed to have missed out on European qualification after finishing ninth last season, shockwaves were sent across French football when Christophe Galtier switched Lille for Nice almost immediately after winning the league title. Harbouring hopes of another shock championship win, the 54-year-old has turned to the transfer market, bringing in Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona and Calvin Stengs from AZ Alkmaar.

However, Galtier hasn’t been able to secure the future of promising French midfielder, Eduardo Camavinga, with the teenager tipped to move away this summer. Favourites to sign the French international are Manchester United, who are priced at 11/8 to secure the 18-year-old’s signature. An unlikely challenger for the favourites, but a capable one nonetheless, Nice are 20/1 to be the highest placed Ligue 1 side other than PSG.
