This weekend could see another first half Dortmund goal drought, Cologne returning to home discomforts, Bremen closing the gap with a two goal win and Mario Gomez returning to his goalscoring best.
Saturday September 24th
Borussia Monchengladbach v Nuremburg (2.30pm)
Home win: 21/20 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 5/2
Betting tip: Borussia Monchengladbach are on a high after back-to-back 1-0 wins. In fact, three out of Gladbach’s four wins this season have come by a 1-0 scoreline and against an out of sorts Nuremburg, back a bet on the home side to win 1-0 at odds of 7/1.
Augsburg v Hannover 96 (2.30pm)
Home win: 19/10 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 13/10
Betting tip: Augsburg may have made an indifferent start to life in the Bundesliga but one man clearly enjoying things recently has been Hajime Hosogai. The Japanese midfielder has scored once in each of Augsburg’s last two Bundesliga games. You can get odds of 11/2 on Hosogai scoring a goal at any time during the match against Hannover 96.
Schalke 04 v SC Freiburg (2.30pm)
Home win: 19/50 Draw: 4/1 Away win: 6/1
Betting tip: Schalke have conceded exactly two goals in three of their last four Bundesliga games and with coach Ralf Rangnick quitting this week, the home side could be in disarray come this weekend. Whilst they may still win, back a wounded Freiburg to score two goals in Gelsenkirchen . With odds of 4/1 available, it could be worth a look.
Mainz 05 v Borussia Dortmund (2.30pm)
Home win: 14/5 Draw: 5/2 Away win: 91/100
Betting tip: Dortmund’s last four league games have seen the Bundesliga champions go in 0-0 at half time. Regardless of the final score, you can get odds of 2/1 on a 0-0 half time correct score, which could well be worth a small punt given the away side’s recent poor form coupled with Mainz’s equally shoddy showing this term.
VfL Wolfsburg v Kaiserslautern (2.30pm)
Home win: 83/100 Draw: 53/20 Away win: 3/1
Betting tip: Last time out for Wolfsburg at home, Mario Manzukic was the hero, grabbing the final goal in a 2-1 win over Schalke 04. You can get odds of 5/1 on Manzukic scoring the last goal of the game against Kaiserslautern and utilizing bwin’s free £25 bet for registering would see you take home £150.
Bayern Munich v Bayer Leverkusen (5.30pm)
Home win: 7/25 Draw: 9/2 Away win: 33/4
Mario Gomez may have missed out on scoring last week, but the young German has a fine record against Leverkusen, having scored three in two games against the visitors last season. With Leverkusen looking fragile after a 4-1 home defeat to Cologne, back Mario Gomez to score two or more against Leverkusen at odds of 7/2.
Sunday September 25th
Cologne v Hoffenheim (2.30pm)
Home win: 37/20 Draw: 5/2 Away win: 13/10
Betting tip: Despite Cologne enjoying a good away victory last weekend, they have yet to win at home in the Bundesliga this campaign. In contrast, Hoffenheim have been in goalscoring form away from home this campaign, having averaged two goals a game on the road. You can get 12/5 on Hoffenheim scoring exactly two goals on the road here.
Werder Bremen v Hertha Berlin (5.30pm)
Home win: 4/5 Draw: 27/10 Away win: 31/10
Betting tip: Werder Bremen have won eight out of the last ten meetings between these two teams. More importantly, Bremen have won by two clear goals in their last three home games and you can get odds of 29/10 on any team winning by exactly two goals’ difference.
