The French soccer cup Coupe de France continues this weekend with the two Semi-Finals played from Wednesday, May 12 to Thursday, May 13. The previous Round 33 didn't bring a change at the top of the table as Lille are still leading reigning champions, Paris Saint-Germain with a point. In third are Monaco, followed by Lyon, and Marseille, who sit in the fifth position.
In Round 33, second-placed PSG will look to aim for a Coupe de France Final as they play away at Montpellier on Wednesday, May 12. The next day, on Thursday, May 13, surprise entry GFA Rumilly-Vallieres face their first real challenge against Monaco in a bid to make history and enter in the Final.
This round provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Coupe de France matchups.
Montpellier vs Paris Saint-Germain betting picks (Wednesday, May 12)
The Qatari-owned powerhouse managed to get through Caen, Brest, Lille, and Angers to the Semi-Finals. Meanwhile, in order to set up a clash with PSG, Montpellier had to overcome the challenges of Strasbourg, Ales, Chateaubriant, and Canet Roussillon.
DraftKings see Paris Saint-Germain as the firm favorites in this match. They are at -300 to win this matchup while the wager on the underdogs, Metz is at a +550. At $100, the bettor could earn $5500. In all honesty, it looks very unlikely that Montpellier will be able to pull an upset here, so betting that the matchup ends in a 3-0 win for the guests, for example, is paying out +1100 on FanDuel. It might be a much more interesting option than an outright bet.
Monaco vs GFA Rumilly-Vallieres betting picks (Thursday, May 13)
Monaco are one step away from entering the Coupe de France Final. Their final obstacle will be the surprise entry, GFA Rumilly-Vallieres, who in fact, play in the fourth tier of French football. Interestingly, the guests' most recent loss in the major competitions was on October 24, 2020. Their road towards the Semi-Final started in the first stage of the Coupe de France. From then on, they managed to beat Limonest, Saint Priest, Prix les Mezieres, Annecy, Le Puy, and Tolouse.
Monaco, meanwhile, were the better side against Grenoble, Nice, Metz, and Lyon. They must not underestimate the Rumilly-based outfit, but this one should be an easy bite for the last Ligue 1 champion prior to PSG's recent domination. Taking all things into consideration, Monaco are at -700 to win this matchup while the wager on the underdogs is at whopping +1300. However, betting that the game ends in a 6-0 win for the home side could be a risky bet, which could later prove rewarding. It's paying out +4600, at $100, the bettor could earn $4,600.
Parlays for these two matchups of the Coupe de France Semi-Finals
A solid parlay bet could be the following: PSG to beat Montpellier 3-0, and the Monaco vs GFA Rumilly-Vallieres clash to end in a 6-0 victory for the home side. At $50, the bettor could win up to $2,850.
