Borussia Dortmund may be struggling in the Champions League but they have been on fire in the Bundesliga and are fancied to see off RB Leipzig, who are beginning to look like one-season wonders.

The visitors finished three points above Dortmund when runners-up last term but are currently six adrift of the early pacesetters this time around.

Peter Bosz’s side have handed out drubbings to some decent teams and we like Evens for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig betting predictions.

A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds

Borussia Dortmund have dropped just two points from their first seven Bundesliga games and have an incredible goal difference of plus 19 at this point.

They have been particularly lethal on home turf, netting 13 times in a trio of wins over Hertha Berlin, Cologne and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Fears that Ousmane Dembele’s departure would hit them hard have been eased, with Andriy Yarmolenko looking a solid replacement and fellow new boy Max Philipp enhancing his reputation as a hot prospect.

Shinji Kagawa can still be relied upon to chip in with the odd goal and help create plenty of chances for star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international has 13 goals in 11 club matches this season and we like 20/1 he strikes first in a 3-1 home win for our Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig betting tips.

A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds

Leipzig have climbed up to fourth place thanks to back-to-back victories over Eintracht Frankfurt and Cologne but weren’t overly-convincing in either of those 2-1 triumphs.

Earlier away losses at Schalke and Augsburg do not augur well and they have also failed to impress in the Champions League, going down 2-0 at Besiktas after a 1-1 home draw with Monaco.

Tuesday’s crucial clash with Porto in that competition will be a big distraction, while top scorer Timo Werner has been struggling with a neck injury.

Looking at the Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig odds, 27/20 for the hosts to win by more than one goal takes the eye.
