Lens Vs Troyes Betting Tips
Troyes has seven of the last nine points available and has gone undefeated in their past three games, but they could lose Friday at high-flying Lens.
In their last three games, the visitors have defeated Nice and drawn with Rennes, but both victories occurred at home. Although the promoted team has two wins on the road this year, both of those triumphs came against teams that are now in the bottom four and European contenders.
Overall, Lens has won six of their last eight games, including three of their last four at home. As Lens looks to keep up their push for a spot in the top three, a home win is a key wager here.
We may easily see goals at both ends and a 3-1 win for the hosts looks like a great bet in the correct score market because Troyes has only failed to score in one of their previous five away games and once in their last ten overall.
