Bundesliga and Ligue 1 Weekend Parlay: Banking on Eintracht

Bundesliga and Ligue 1 Weekend Parlay at (+214)

We have two tasty ingredients for another winning parlay: A Bundesliga dish between the mighty Greuther Furth and Eintracht Frankfurt a Ligue 1 croque-monsieur between Nice and Montpellier.

Greuther Furth vs. Eintracht Frankfurt (Bundesliga Round 11) Sunday November 7, 1:30 p.m. ET

Greuther Furth vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Odds

The mighty Greuther Furth are sitting dead last in the German top-flight league standings, and right from the start of the season, we went against them. Nine defeats in 10 games with 27 goals conceded in the process, that's says everything about how 'good' this team is. Just take them down already. Better don't do that because we need them for the entire season. Every single Bundesliga team is having fun with them.

After every round we have some great headlines: Bochum strikes late to beat Greuther Furth, Dominik Szoboszlai inspires Leipzig comeback win over bottom-placed Furth, Nicolas Höfler seals win for Freiburg over Furth… The mighty Greuther Furth is on fire. Sometimes we feel sorry for them, but we are here to cash, so let's do that.

Eintracht's start to their season is bad. They lost their striker André Silva who moved to RB Leipzig, bringing Rafael Borre from River Plate on a free transfer. Oliver Glasner is their new head coach, succeeding Adi Hütter, who left for Gladbach. Glasner suffers from the Hütter legacy, playing on the wings and coming with crosses in the box.

Since 2018, Eintracht delivered the most crosses Bundesliga with a total of 1428 with Filip Kostić, the player in charge. Under Glasner, the visitors no longer have the penalty area striker who uses the wings, so they must adapt. It takes time, and their performance is poor, but they will surely bounce back and climb the standings. After all, they have a decent squad that should be in the top half of the table.

Tactically the team looks better, but the results are missing. So this is the perfect opportunity for Eintracht to add three points to their season tally. We know that they are playing on the road, but we feel like the bookies are underpricing Frankfurt for this clash so that we will take the gift. It's now or never for the visitors who surprisingly are doing a great job in the Europa League, sitting 1st in their group having big chances to qualify in the round of 16.

A player to watch is Eintracht's striker Sam Lammers, on loan from Atalanta. He's an interesting player, but he needs to play more to show his skills. So check the lineups, and in case he starts the game, sprinkle a small stake on him to be "anytime goalscorer."

1st Parlay Pick: Eintracht Frankfurt ML (-105)

Nice vs. Montpellier (Ligue 1 Round 13) - Sunday - November 7 -11:00 a.m. ET

Nice vs. Montpellier Odds

The gap between Paris Saint-Germain and the rest of the teams is huge in the French Ligue 1, so the question is who's the best from the rest. Reigning champs, Lille is nowhere to be found, having a very poor season, Monaco is struggling at the middle of the table, Lyon is sitting 6th, Marseille 3rd, but we have Nice sitting 2nd. Of course, the difference between them and their followers is not big, but still, Nice is one of the favorites to finish in the top 4.

Why? Mainly because they hired Christophe Galtier as their manager. The Ligue 1 title-winning manager joined Nice in the summer, signing a 3-year deal with the club. Let's not forget that he's the one who turned Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into one of Europe's top goalscorers. His main objective is to transform Nice into a French football powerhouse, and he possesses all the weapons to make nice title challengers. Maybe not this season because he needs more quality in his squad, but in 2-3 years, if he stays, we will see them chasing PSG.

On the other side, Montpellier has always been tough to play against. They appear unlikely to win two games in a row, but they are scoring, and it's a pleasure to watch them. We are talking about two entertaining teams, so we are going with the 'overs' for our 2nd pick of this parlay.

2nd Parlay Pick: Over 2.5 goals (-164)

2-Leg Parlay (+214)
