Monaco in the top 5?
Predictions for the AS Monaco VS AS Saint Etienne meeting
For this important match at the foot of the Rock, it is AS Monaco which will be favored by the predictions with an average odds of 1.50 against an odds of 4.90 for a football bet on a victory for Saint Etienne.
Despite this advantage, AS Monaco’s mission promises to be perilous because Saint Etienne is doing better and ASM remains feverish. It would therefore be more prudent to bet on an exact score of 0-0 at half-time, ie an odds of 2.30.
It therefore seems fairly easy for online bettors to double their stakes. On this meeting, the tension may be at the maximum so it would also be preferable to bet on a match with less than 2.5 goals, or an odds of 2.05 on the sports betting site.
In this context, it would also be wise to bet on a few scorers. The duo Ben Yedder / Volland seems essential in the camp of AS Monaco (13 goals out of 26 and 6 assists), while among the Greens, the attackers are still in the dark because they had some injuries on this start, whether it be Romain Hamouma, Whabi Khazri or Arnaud Nordin.
