Friday, February 10th
Wolfsburg v Freiburg (7.30pm)
Home win: 67/100 Draw: 14/5 Away win: 15/4
Betting tip: The last couple of weeks may have seen Wolfsburg drop points against Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach, but things seems to be improving for Felix Magath’s side, whose defensive record at home has been impressive over the past two months.
The Wolves come into this game with a solid record at the Volkswagen Arena which has seen them go five games unbeaten, with three consecutive clean sheets. With the hosts’ last two home wins coming courtesy of a 1-0 scoreline, backing Wolfsburg to win 1-0 at 29/4 could prove the punt of the day, particularly with Freiburg enjoying just one win in ten on the road .
Saturday, February 11th
Borussia Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen (2.30pm)
Home win: 2/5 Draw: 17/5 Away win: 27/4
Betting tip: Shinji Kagawa has been in fine form in front of goal for Borussia Dortmund of late, with recent highlights including a match-winning double against Hoffenheim. Home is evidently where the heart is too, with the Japanese midfielder notching three goals in the club’s last two Bundesliga fixtures at the Westfalenstadion. Odds of 11/4 are available on Kagawa scoring at any time during the game.
Alternatively, Kevin Grosskreutz could be one to back for an anytime goal at odds of 9/4, with the German scoring three in the club’s last four games. Leverkusen are likely to be concerned by his presence too, particularly after Grosskreutz scored twice for Dortmund against them last season.
Bayern Munich v Kaiserslautern (2.30pm)
Home win: 7/50 Draw: 27/4 Away win: 29/2
Betting tip: Bayern Munich will be eager for a win against lowly Kaiserslautern and much of that could depend on the form and goals of Mario Gomez. The striker has scored back-to-back hat-tricks against Kaiserslautern in the team’s last two encounters in the Bundesliga and Gomez comes into the game with an impressive nine goals in his previous seven league matches at the Allianz Arena.
Backing Gomez to score two or more goals against Kaiserslautern could provide good returns at odds of 9/4, but with 9/1 available on the 26-year-old grabbing three or more goals in Munich, a small punt could be worth it.
Mainz 05 v Hannover 96 (2.30pm)
Home win: Evens Draw: 23/10 Away win: 11/4
Betting tip: Three consecutive clean sheets in the Bundesliga have seen Hannover 96 edge back up the table, with Mirko Slomka’s side rediscovering the form that saw them start the season so brightly.
Part of Die Roten’s recent resurgence has coincided with a return to prominence for main goal threat Mohammed Abdellaoue. The Norwegian goalscorer has been the difference for Hannover 96 in recent matches, with winning goals in their previous two Bundesliga victories.
The 26-year old was on the scoresheet when these clubs met earlier in the season, scoring the final goal in a 1-1 home draw, and is available at odds of 5/1 to score the last goal of the game.
VfB Stuttgart v Hertha Berlin (2.30pm)
Home win: 83/100 Draw: 13/5 Away win: 31/10
Betting tip: Both of these sides come into this game low on confidence yet seemingly full of goals. Despite winning just one of their last ten league games, Hertha have found the net on eight of these occasions and could be on course to score at least once again when visiting Stuttgart.
The hosts have seen a total of 15 goals scored in their last five league games, though in many instances these strikes have come at the wrong end of the pitch for Stuttgart. With odds of 3/1 on exactly three goals being scored, you can take advantage of their relative unpredictability.
Werder Bremen v Hoffenheim (2.30pm)
Home win: 91/100 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 3/1
Betting tip: Backing Werder Bremen for a 2-1 win over Hoffenheim at odds of 29/4 looks a shrewd punt for this potential goalfest. After all, Bremen’s defensive frailties continue to offset their attacking sensibilities in the Bundesliga so far, with Thomas Schaaf’s side scoring seven yet conceding nine in their previous five league matches.
This could change against a Hoffenheim side struggling for goals though, with the visitors scoring just four goals in their last four Bundesliga fixtures. Bremen won 2-1 both home and away against Hoffenheim last season and backing a repeat here could have you reaping the benefits.
Borussia Monchengladbach v Schalke 04 (5.30pm)
Home win: 27/20 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 19/10
Betting tip: Borussia Monchengladbach have a fine recent record against Schalke 04 at Borussia Park in the Bundesliga that has seen the club win each of their last four home encounters against the Royal Blues.
Star man Marco Reus has notched up four goals in the last three encounters between the teams in Monchengladbach and is available at odds of 5/1 to open the scoring here.
On each occasion, the hosts have gone in ahead at half-time before going on to win and backing Gladbach to be leading at half-time and full-time could be worth a punt at 11/4.
Sunday, February 12th
Augsburg v Nuremberg (2.30pm)
Home win: 33/20 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 33/20
Betting tip: Two has certainly been the magic number for Bundesliga battlers Augsburg, who have made a habit of scoring two goals in recent weeks. Coming into this match, the hosts have scored two in both of their previous league encounters and they’ve also scored in five consecutive home games.
Backing Augsburg to score exactly two goals at 14/5 against an out-of-sorts Nuremberg side could bear fruit too, with the visitors coming into this game on the back of a 2-0 away defeat to Dortmund and with just one win and six defeats in their last seven games on the road. All signs point to advantage Augsburg.
Cologne v Hamburg (5.30pm)
Home win: 39/20 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 13/10
Betting tip: Mladen Petric has a fine record against Cologne in the Bundesliga that has seen the Croat score seven goals in four consecutive games against them.
At a rate of almost two goals a game, backing Petric to score two or more goals at odds of 15/2 could prove the perfect way to round off a weekend of betting in the German league.
Alternatively, backing over 4.5 goals at odds of 4/1 could prove a shrewd move too, given that each of the last four encounters between the sides have seen at least five goals shared.
