Bremen’s Claudio Pizarro, Hertha’s Raffael and Bayern’s Mario Gomez could be the men to back for goalscoring bets this weekend, Leverkusen and Dortmund may find goals hard to come by and Mainz look good for two goals.
Saturday September 17th
Nuremburg v Werder Bremen (2.30pm)
Home win: 31/20 Draw: 5/2 Away win: 31/20
Betting tip: Last season, Claudio Pizarro scored both home and away for Werder Bremen against Nuremburg. The Peruvian also comes into this game off the back of a match-winning double against Hamburg. Pizarro is available at odds of 11/2 to score two or more goals against an unpredictable Nuremburg and it could be one bet worth looking at.
Hoffenheim v VfL Wolfsburg (2.30pm)
Home win: 91/100 Draw: 13/5 Away win: 27/10
Betting tip: There have been exactly four goals scored in each of the last three Bundesliga encounters between Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg. Odds of 4/1 on exactly four goals being scored on Saturday are available through bwin and it’s definitely worth a look.
Bayer Leverkusen v Cologne (2.30pm)
Home win: 7/20 Draw: 17/4 Away win: 25/4
Betting tip: Five of the last six encounters between Bayer Leverkusen and Cologne in the Bundesliga have been 0-0 at half time and you can get odds of 11/4 on a repeat for this coming game. Leverkusen went in 0-0 at half time during their last home match and may have lost some confidence after losing to Chelsea in the Champions League, making this a wise punt indeed.
Hamburg v Borussia Monchengladbach (2.30pm)
Home win: 29/20 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 17/10
Betting tip: Gladbach have scored a single goal against Hamburg in each of their last three encounters. They also go into the game off the back of a 1-0 win against Kaiserslautern. Let’s also not forget that they dispatched Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena by the same scoreline earlier in the campaign. With Hamburg suffering in the Bundesliga at present, all signs point to a 1-0 win to Gladbach at odds of 19/2.
Hertha Berlin v Augsburg (2.30pm)
Home win: 57/100 Draw: 29/10 Away win: 93/20
Betting tip: Hertha Berlin have made a fine start to life back in the Bundesliga and could enjoy the visit of Augsburg this Saturday. Midfielder Raffael has proven instrumental in recent weeks, with the Brazilian opening the scoring in Hertha’s last two Bundesliga games and you can get odds of 8/1 on the 26-year-old to repeat the trick against Augsburg.
Kaiserslautern v Mainz (5.30pm)
Home win: 31/20 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 8/5
Betting tip: Kaiserslautern have conceded two goals on average in each of their last three home games, while Mainz have notched up just under two goals a game on average away from home this season. Mainz are priced at 11/4 to score exactly two goals against Kaiserslautern and putting bwin’s free £25 bet for new customers on this outcome returns £93.75 if correct.
Sunday September 18th
Hannover 96 v Borussia Dortmund (2.30pm)
Home win: 14/5 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 19/20
Betting tip: Dortmund are really missing the finishing touch of Lucas Barrios. The Paraguayan notched up three goals against Hannover last season, but with the 26-year-old injured Dortmund have struggled for goals. In fact, the Bundesliga champions have failed to score away from home this season and you can get odds of 31/10 on Dortmund failing to score again this weekend.
FC Schalke 04 v Bayern Munich (5.30pm)
Home win: 15/4 Draw: 29/10 Away win: 13/20
Betting tip: Schalke 04 have kept just one clean sheet in the Bundesliga so far this term. That statistic is never good when facing off against a rampant Bayern Munich. Mario Gomez has scored eight in his last three Bundesliga outings. You can get odds of 7/2 on Gomez to score two or more but the more adventurous punter may want to back Gomez to score three or more for the third game in a row at 14/1. Sounds crazy, but anything can happen with FC Hollywood.
