2021 LNB Pro A predictions foresee a title win for ASVEL
Currently, ASVEL stands the best chance of claiming the 2021 LNB Pro A title on Unibet Sportsbook. Fortunately, they have the record to back up their leading odds of winning. According to the online sportsbook news in France, ASVEL is the most successful club with an impressive 19 titles.
Additionally, they’re the most recent champions after their 2019 victory. Last season, they recorded a top-three finish in the season and booked a spot for the 2020/2021 EuroLeague. According to our 2021 LNB Pro A predictions, they’re favoured to lift this season’s title with odds at 1.80.
Fortunately, ASVEL is currently proving to be considerable title contenders with several of their players currently among the league’s top performers. Consequently, their players to watch will be Allerik Freeman (shooting guard) and Norris Cole (point guard).
AS Monaco look to cause upsets to title favourites ASVEL
According to our 2021 LNB Pro League predictions, AS Monaco is also a top dog for this season’s title win. Currently, they trail behind ASVEL with the second-best odds of winning the 2021 title at 5.00 on Unibet Sportsbook.
Unlike ASVEL, AS Monaco have yet to claim a Pro A win. The closest the club came to league victory was a runner-up finish at the 2017/2018 season. However, it’s their 2019/2020 regular season performance that makes them considerable 2021 LNB Pro A league contenders.
AS Monaco were league leaders recording an impressive three losses from 24 matches. Now, they stand a good chance to challenge ASVEL and claim their first LNB Pro A title.
Underdogs looking to make a surprise 2021 LNB Pro A win
Currently, Orléans Loiret Basket is among the season’s longshots with unfavourable odds of winning on Unibet Sportsbook. Additionally, their competitive record also makes them a risky bet according to our 2021 LNB Pro A predictions.
This consists of zero Pro A league wins and relegation to the Pro B league after the 2016/2017 season. Furthermore, they failed to capitalise on their 2019/2020 Pro A promotion after finishing 13th in the regular season.
Consequently, it’s expected that they’ll record another poor season with odds stacked against at 91.00. Similarly to Orléans, Chorale Roanne also find themselves with low odds of winning on the online sportsbooks in France. Chorale Roanne has claimed two wins in the league (1959 and 2017).
Despite their promotion back to the Pro A league this year, it’s unlikely that they’ll mark their return with a title. Consequently, our 2021 LNB Pro A predictions have labelled the club a risky with odds at 151.00.
