Nice Montpellier betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that Montpellier won’t lose. The home team is in a better position in the league table and seems to have more arguments in this match, particularly the support of their fans. Therefore, Nice should keep up the good results they have had at home so far, which means they are likely to, at the very least, avoid losing.
