Bundesliga: Best betting picks for the weekend
Bundesliga action is back again for this weekend yet, and as expected throws up a lot of interesting betting angles. Champions in waiting Bayern Munich hosts Borussia Monchengladbach at the Allianz Arena, Borussia Dortmund who have more or less settled for the runner-up position are away to Fortuna Duesseldorf, a relegation dogfight breaks out in Paderborn when they welcome Werder Bremen and lots of exciting fixtures.
Take a while to go through what our punters at Bookmakers Africa think about some of these fixtures, and we hope they prove decisive in your Bundesliga picks for this matchday.
Goals should be a surety in Düsseldorf:
Borussia Dortmund should be more than able to secure a comfortable victory full of goals when they make their way to Düsseldorf in one of Saturday’s afternoon kick-off. Boasting a plethora of brilliant attacking options, Die Borussen are value for a victory and expect them to put a lot of goals past a hesitant Fortuna defence.
While the visitors have won eight of their last nine league games, there have also been over 2.5 goals scored in 17 of their last 21 away games, so punters looking to bag reasonable fortune from this game would back the over 2.5 market, which is offered for odds of 1.47 by 1xbet.
Back goals to be at a premium in Wolfsburg:
Wolfsburg will play hosts to Freiburg, with both sides hoping to build on the narrow wins they picked up last weekend.
Freiburg ended a four-game winless streak when they pipped Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 while their opposition ran out winners by the same scoreline at Werder Bremen, their third victory since the return of football. These two sides are assured of their top-flight status for another season, and can be hard to split here.
Back an under 2.5 goals in what is expected to be tight, dour affair here and it is offered for odds of 2.06 by Bet9ja.
Bayern Munich to fall to Borussia Monchengladbach:
Bayern might be in their way to an eight successive league title, but do not expect Monchengladbach to be bowled over very easily.
Die Fohlen have been brilliant thus far this campaign, and are on the verge of securing Champions League football for next season, and this could be the game they throw down the gauntlet to their chasing pack.
Throw in the fact that Bayern are bereft of the lethal Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller both of who are suspended for this game, then this could be Gladbach’s best chance to claiming a shock win. It is an incredible 7.10 odds by Betway.
Mainz and Augsburg to share spoils:
Mainz put behind relegation worries when they upstaged Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 last time out, but it could prove to be a lot difficult for them to cart home all three points yet against Augsburg here.
Augsburg on their part, drew 1-1 with Köln prior to this clash and can be backed to keep their opposition at bay again, even though they aren’t playing at their home.
Back the scoreline to be deadlocked at the end of regulation time at the Opel Arena, for odds of 3.42 offered by 22bet.
Schalke 04 to suffer more misery versus Bayer Leverkusen:
Schalke 04 are experiencing their worst form since the 1993/94 season, having failed to win any of their last 12 league games. They will be more than happy to share the points with their latest opponents, though that itself is a tall order.
Buoyed by reaching the DFB Pokal final during midweek, Bayer are almost likely to march one with another victory over their rivals on Sunday. Should that suffice and come to fruition, punters will rack in odds of 1.55 as offered by Bwin.
