EPL BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 35

The intense rivalry to claim bragging rights in north London is the highlight of the Premier League this weekend, while the fight for spots amongst Europe’s elite continues to bubble up. Join us as we dive into the Premier League and offer up some interesting options for EPL betting in week 35.

PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING

Tottenham

A 0-0 bore draw against Bournemouth on Thursday would certainly not have been the kind of preparation Tottenham fans would consider ideal with a north London derby looming. Having won just two of their last 10 fixtures, Mourinho must push his team to step up and pick up the pace for one of the Premier League’s biggest fixtures of the season.

Eric Dier will not feature due to a recently imposed four-game ban, so Spurs may have to set up differently for their first north London derby at their new stadium. With their team currently sat in the middle of the table, Spurs fans know that a win against Arsenal could push them into the centre of the battle for Europa League qualification, with three points possibly hoisting them up into sixth place.

Arsenal

A red card for Nketiah’s late challenge on James Justin last Tuesday saw Arsenal go down to 10 men and ultimately concede against Leicester City, in what became their 14th draw of the season. Now on a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions, the Gunners travel the short distance across the capital to take on their fiercest rivals in a north London derby that should be highly competitive, despite the lack of fan attendance.

With the usual pre-match mind games between Mourinho and the Gunners already catching the attention of the public, Arsenal fans know their team must push aside their dreadful record against the Portuguese manager and capitalise on a shaky Tottenham team. Having scored for Arsenal in the previous 2-2 encounter with Spurs, why not consider Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to fire in another goal this Sunday at 13/12 (2.08) as an option for EPL betting in week 35?

TOTTENHAM VS ARSENAL: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

In what looks to be one of the closest games this weekend, Tottenham come out slightly ahead at 8/5 (2.60) to win, with Arsenal’s chances measured at 17/10 (2.70).


Sheffield United

Having put together a three-match unbeaten run, Sheffield United welcome Chelsea to Bramall Lane this Saturday, in what is a must-win fixture for both sides. With John Egan’s late strike against Wolves last Wednesday moving Sheffield United to within a single point of sixth place, three points this weekend could spell a possible Europa League finish for the side that were battling it out in the championship last season.  

Although Chelsea look unstoppable at the moment, Chris Wilder will take confidence from his side’s previous encounter against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Chelsea

Chelsea look to defend their newly acquired third place, as the Blues sit one point above Leicester City in the Premier League table. Boasting five wins out of six since the restart, the London team go into their Saturday fixture having bagged eight goals in their last three games.

Although history and form are on their side, Chelsea have a few injuries to worry about, most notably Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante. Securing three points away to Sheffield United with a weakened midfield could prove trickier for the Blues than initially anticipated.

SHEFFIELD UNITED VS CHELSEA: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

Chelsea come out on top as favourites at 3/5 (1.60) to win, with Sheffield United at 26/5 (6.20), to cause an upset.


Manchester United

Having entered the record books by winning their fourth consecutive game by a three-goal margin against Aston Villa last Thursday, Manchester United look like they’re back to their best ahead of a home fixture to Southampton.

Unbeaten since the restart of the league and currently on a five-game winning streak, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will demand his team continue their pursuit of Champions League football, and reestablish themselves amongst the higher echelons of European football. Regardless of Manchester United’s current standing in the game, Mason Greenwood is one of the young starlets of the sport across the continent right now; why not back the 18-year old to score for the Red Devils at 7/6 (2.17)?

Southampton

Three wins, a loss and a draw since the restart of the league has left Southampton in 12th place, battling it out amongst the mid-table teams. With a comfortable 16-point gap from the relegation zone, the Saints have picked up at points an outstanding rate for a team with seemingly nothing left to play for.

Southampton fans will look to their top scorer, Danny Ings, to add to his 19-goal Premier League tally. The Saints should take the battle to the Red Devils at Old Trafford as Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team have already shown they have what it takes to go toe-to-toe with Manchester United having secured a home 1-1 draw earlier this season.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS SOUTHAMPTON: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

On account of their recent form and home advantage, Manchester United march into the fixture as favourites at 2/7 (1.28) to win, with the chances of the travelling side, Southampton calculated at 9/1 (10.00).

LA LIGA BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 32

Spanish football heats up over the weekend as La Liga frontrunners Real Madrid and Barcelona find themselves level on points, and both facing bottom-half teams away from home. An intense local derby mid-table fight for a European spot between Villarreal and Valencia is the highlight of the remaining fixtures in the Spanish league and offers some interesting options for La Liga betting in Week 32.

LA LIGA BETTING: WEEK 32

Celta Vigo

Focused and determined to climb the ladder, Celta have hit their stride following an unpredictable restart to the league. Although currently positioned in 16th place, Celta Vigo fans have seen their side score seven goals in their last two fixtures, picking up the same number of points in their four fixtures since the restart.

Knowing an empty stadium against the current champions will not add much to their home advantage, Óscar García Junyent will hope for continuing solidity from his side; Celta have only conceded once in their last seven games, and should not be written off easily.

Barcelona

A 71st-minute strike from Croatian substitute Ivan Rakitic was enough to ensure the win for Barcelona last weekend against Athletic Bilbao. Although level on points with the league leaders, Real Madrid’s head-to-head advantage means that Barcelona will need to finish at least one point above their rivals in order to claim their 27th La Liga title.

Despite the fact that they have dominated in their head-to-head record against Celta Vigo, Quique Setién’s team are by no means entitled to the win. With Celta widely considered one of Barcelona’s bogey teams of recent seasons, Barca fans will undoubtedly look towards their Argentinian talisman Lionel Messi to lead the line and ensure the full three points. 

CELTA DE VIGO VS BARCELONA: LA LIGA BETTING ODDS

As expected, the current La Liga champions are favoured to come out on top, with Barcelona at 13/20 (1.65) to win, while the chances of Celta Vigo are measured at 41/10 (5.10).


RCD Espanyol

Two losses and a draw in their previous three fixtures have seen RCD Espanyol slip down the table into last spot. With a game against the current first place holders Real Madrid this Sunday, Abelardo Fernández must get his team’s act together, and fast, to spare his side from any embarrassment on the field.

With the worst points tally and goal difference in the league, RCD Espanyol are unfancied and all but consigned to relegation. However, fans of the Blanquiazules will no doubt expect their side to come out with all guns blazing, ready and willing to fight for their pride.

Real Madrid

Seeking his second La Liga trophy as a manager, Zinedine Zidane has seen his side win all of their last four fixtures. Level with Barcelona (but clinching first place due to their head-to-head record), Real Madrid must aim to push away from the champions this weekend as they take on RCD Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium.

Midfield maestro Luka Modric will be suspended after accumulating his fifth yellow card, which means that Real Madrid fans may witness the return of Carlos Casemiro to the lineup, supported by both Kroos and Valverde in the midfield. With goals a-plenty coming from all areas of the team since the restart, youngsters Mariano Diaz and Vinicius Junior will look to get in on the action if they make it into the lineup.

RCD ESPANYOL VS REAL MADRID: LA LIGA BETTING ODDS

RCD Espanyol enter the fixture with their chances calculated at 61/10 (7.10) to win, with the league leaders Real Madrid looking strong as favourites at 3/7 (1.43).


Villarreal

Following three consecutive wins in the league, Villarreal shared the spoils of their last game with Sevilla last Monday in a 2-2 draw at home. Ahead of their next game, good news is emanating from the Estadio de la Cerámica; Villarreal captain Bruno Soriano may be set for his first league start in over three years.

With an intense derby against rivals Valencia on the horizon, Javier Calleja must push his team to take advantage of their opponent’s poor form and overcome the recent one-sided history of this match-up.

Valencia

With only one win in their last five fixtures, losing to both Eibar and Real Madrid and sharing points with Levante and Deportivo Alaves, Valencia have allowed themselves to slip down the La Liga table, dropping down a couple of positions since the restart.

With a derby against Villarreal on the cards this Sunday, Los Murcelagos must gather themselves and forget about their recent troubles. Albert Celades must look to ensure his players are ready to make a statement, as three points could prove vital for his team’s campaign to get back into European football, hurling them into sixth-place if results go their way.

VILLARREAL VS VALENCIA: LA LIGA BETTING ODDS

In one of the tightest games to call this weekend, Villarreal come out on top at 119/100 (2.19) to win, with the travelling team Valencia looking at odds of 11/5 (3.20).

EPL BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 30

With the preliminary midweek games out of the way, English football returns to its rightful place as the highlight of a football-filled weekend.

Join us as we take a closer look at some options for EPL betting in Week 30 and examine some of the headline fixtures taking place in the next few days.

PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING

Tottenham

Currently seven points off the top four, Tottenham’s 2019-20 campaign had seemingly faltered under the weight of recurring defensive errors and hard-hitting injuries. With captain and talisman Harry Kane returning to fitness from injury, Spurs are now much better placed to finish the season competitively. Jose Mourinho will look to stoke the fire within his players in an effort to reignite their fight for a Champions League place and close the gap on their opponents in the table.

Manchester United

While Manchester United fans can only glance enviously at their fiercest rivals at the top of the table – both City and Liverpool are beyond reach, Champions League qualification is still very much within their grasp. With a European ban looming for Manchester City – appeal pending obviously, fifth place could well secure a spot in Europe’s top competition. While Sheffield United and Wolves separate the Red Devils and Spurs, the North London side are perhaps their biggest challengers for the position. A win, therefore, is vital.

TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER UNITED: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

Although they are the home-side, Tottenham come out as underdogs at 39/20 (2.95) to win, with Manchester United measuring up at 7/5 (2.40).

Everton

With his side mired in mid-table, Carlo Ancelotti will hope that his players were able to use the mid-season hiatus as a chance to study that tactical system he’s been trying to implement since taking the reigns in December. The Toffees return to football with an immensely challenging home derby against runaway league-leaders Liverpool this Sunday. Will Everton have the firepower to delay the inevitable? Or will they be dispatched as they so often have in recent years by their rivals?

Liverpool

There’s still the potential for this to be a truly historic season for Liverpool. Klopp’s men resume the season way out-front in the league with an astounding 82 points. Having dropped points only twice in 29 games, the Reds will be pumped to return back to their winning ways come this Sunday. As Liverpool cross to Goodison Park, Jordan Henderson and co will be focused on securing three of the final six points necessary to become champions.

EVERTON VS LIVERPOOL: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

As is almost always the case this season, Liverpool find themselves as strong favourites at 20/33 (1.61) to win, with the chances of Everton causing an upset calculated at 23/5 (5.60).

Watford

Chaos, disappointment and questionable tactics have left a ragged Watford team fighting just above relegation places. On the plus side, an extraordinary 3-0 hammering of a then-unbeaten Liverpool side in Watford’s last home game showed the naysayers that the Hornets have the potential to push themselves out of the danger zone. With their first match back against a strong third-place Leicester City team, Watford will need to hit the ground running to fulfil their ambition of securing another season in the Premier League.

Leicester City

A full 103 days after their last competitive game, Leicester City will return to the pitch in an away fixture at Watford this Saturday.  With the aim of their season – clinching a Champions League spot – within touching distance, Brendan Rodgers will have his Foxes hungry for points to realise their European dream. There’s also the ever so small possibility that they could challenge Manchester City for second place, should Pep’s men turn their focus to other competitions where they still stand a chance of picking up silverware.

WATFORD VS LEICESTER CITY: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

No surprises as Leicester City come into this fixture as favourites at 9/8 (2.13) to win. Watford have odds of 5/2 (3.50) to secure a much-needed victory.

PREVIEW: PREMIER LEAGUE RETURN

After a 100-day shutdown, fans of the English Premier League welcome the return of top-flight football this Wednesday. Aston Villa host Sheffield United, before Arsenal travel to take on Manchester City at the Etihad. 

Join us for a detailed preview into the first Premier League fixtures to hit our screens since March, and read on to learn about all the new rules, regulations and TV enhancements that have been put in place.

PREMIER LEAGUE RETURN COVID MEASURES

The reintroduction of the Premier League will see managers, coaches and players subject to newly introduced Covid-19 measures, in an effort to ensure the safety of all those present at games. Televised fixtures will also undergo ‘broadcasting enhancements’ as a way to mitigate the behind-closed-doors matchday experience.

As per the implemented safety measures, players will not shake hands at the beginning of each fixture and are encouraged to refrain from spitting and clearing their nose while on the pitch. Additionally, during goal celebrations, players have been asked to keep a reasonable distance between each other. Surrounding the match officials in any case of controversy is out and ball boys and ball girls have been removed, with spare balls being lined up around the pitch. 

Teams can bring a bigger matchday squad, naming nine substitutes on the bench, with five allowed to enter the play per match. This change promises to add a new tactical dimension to the game – and perhaps favours the teams with big squads – while players and teams build up their match fitness in the coming weeks. 

From a television standpoint, fans will enjoy the introduction of a tunnel camera and be given the option to add artificial crowd noise while they watch the game. Broadcasters will also be able to show live video feeds of pre-selected fans as a way “to improve the environment both visually and acoustically”.

Through these measures, it is hoped that the Premier League navigates a successful and safe return to football, while also providing spectators with a number of options to help them further enjoy their viewing experience.

Now that we know what to expect in terms of the regulations when we tune-in this Wednesday, let’s dive head-first into a preview of the upcoming fixtures.

PREMIER LEAGUE RETURN BETTING

Aston Villa

A restart button was exactly what Dean Smith’s side needed, as numerous defensive errors and unfortunate injuries throughout the season have seen them slip progressively down the table into the relegation zone. All hope of keeping Villa afloat will be placed upon the shoulders of local lad and captain, Jack Grealish, whose incredible performances have attracted the attention of a number of big clubs in the league. With a game in hand, a win against Sheffield United will propel the Villans up to 16th place, where they will find themselves just one point behind Brighton & Hove Albion.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United have seen an immense resurgence since their return to the Premier League. Now in a seventh-place tussle for possible European places, the Blades have spent a season quietly capitalising on every point, refusing to lose against the teams currently around them. Manager Chis Wilder has stated that his players are in “brilliant condition” and will expect nothing less than a win, as the full three points will see The Blades climb above both Wolves and Manchester United and into fifth place.

ASTON VILLA VS SHEFFIELD UNITED: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

Although the travelling team, Sheffield United head into the fixture as favourites at 6/5 (2.20), with Aston Villa’s chances measured at 47/20 (3.35).

Manchester City

Finding themselves in a lonely second-place spot, the reigning champions stand 25 points adrift of the runaway league leaders and five points ahead of Leicester City. As Pep Guardiola prepares his team to tackle a travelling Arsenal side, questions over the squad’s mentality have surfaced. Will Manchester City choose to focus on other competitions in an effort to secure silverware this season? We’ll soon find out.

Arsenal

Mikel Arteta returns to the Etihad Stadium this Wednesday to face his former mentor, Pep Guardiola, in possibly the biggest test of his managerial career to date. With a renewed sense of optimism around the Emirates since the dismissal of Unai Emery, the Gunners have found some form, losing only once in their last 10 Premier League fixtures. Arteta will aim to use his inside knowledge of Guardiola’s approach to Arsenal’s favour, as a victory could not only shoot the Gunners up to sixth place but also send a clear message of intent to the teams around them.

MANCHESTER CITY VS ARSENAL: PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING ODDS

Manchester City find themselves as strong favourites at 1/3 (1.33), with the chances of Arsenal causing an upset calculated at 79/10 (8.90).

BUNDESLIGA BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 31

Join us as we take a look at Bundesliga betting for week 31 and highlight some of the exciting battles taking place this weekend.

German football is no longer the only major league underway in Europe, courtesy of the resumption of La Liga (read our La Liga preview here). But that doesn’t mean that the focus turns away from Bundesliga, as German teams prepare themselves for their 31st round of fixtures.

With only four matches left, managers and players will be feeling the pressure; the value of taking three points is at an all-time high. Read on as we shed light on a tight fight for European league places and a final sprint for silverware by the league leaders.

BUNDESLIGA BETTING FOR WEEK 31

Bayern Munich

Five wins, 15 points and 17 goals since the restart have placed Bayern Munich firmly atop the pack in the Bundesliga. The Bavarians welcome Borussia Monchengladbach to the Allianz arena this weekend, knowing that they are only a few points away from another record-breaking, title-claiming season. Hans-Dieter Flick will look to his Polish striker Robert Lewandowski to continue his immense form and seal maximum points for Bayern Munich.

Borussia Monchengladbach

Following a shock 1-0 defeat to Freiburg last Friday, Borussia Monchengladbach find themselves on the back foot, with the teams below them closing in fast. Although still in the running for a top-four finish, Marco Rose and his team will know that another slip-up could cost them the chance to compete with Europe’s elite next year. 

BAYERN MUNICH VS BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

As is almost always the case, Bayern Munich find themselves as strong favourites, at 3/8 (1.37) to win and the least appealing option for Bundesliga betting in week 31. Borussia Monchengladbach’s chances are measured at 34/5 (7.80).

RB Leipzig

Following the dismissal of defender Dayot Upamecano, RB Leipzig saw their advantage against SC Paderborn 07 crumble as the fixture ended in a 1-1 draw. RB Leipzig know that they will need to get back to winning ways if they want to keep their third-place position in the league. They must come away from their Friday fixture against Hoffenheim with the full three points.

Hoffenheim

Another team which saw a loss of points against a relegation side due to a red-card dismissal, Hoffenheim will look at their home fixture against RB Leipzig as a way of setting the record straight. Positioned in seventh place, just outside of the Europa League qualification spots, Hoffenheim must finish their weekend fixture with maximum points if they wish to keep the dream of European competition alive for next season.

RB LEIPZIG VS HOFFENHEIM: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

RB Leipzig come out on top as favourites at 5/11 (1.46) to win, with the chances of Hoffenheim causing an upset calculated at 26/5 (6.20).

Wolfsburg

A 1-0 victory away to Werder Bremen last Sunday saw Wolfsburg secure sixth place in the Bundesliga table. Finding themselves eleven points away from fifth place, Wolfsburg will no doubt look to consolidate their current position and increase their advantage over the teams below them.

Freiburg

Petersen’s second-half goal provided Freiburg with a crucial win over rivals Borussia Monchengladbach last Friday. Now in eighth place, Freiburg will be looking up at the table, aware that an end-of-the-season march into the final Europa League qualification spot is still possible. This Saturday, Freiburg travel to take on direct league rivals Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena.

WOLFSBURG VS FREIBURG: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

One of the closer games taking place this weekend in the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg are favourites at 33/10 (1.73) to win, with Freiburg looking to beat the odds at 15/4 (4.75).

BUNDESLIGA BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 29

Round 29 of the Bundesliga will soon be hitting our screens, as the very best of German football continues to hit us thick and fast in another weekend of packed action and Bundesliga betting. Now in the third week since the restart of the league, players are finding their fitness and managers are ready for a final push towards achieving their season objectives.

With the league table shaping-up and points becoming ever more valuable, we’ll take a look at the upcoming fixtures for the top three Bundesliga teams, as well as an all-important mid-table battle to secure a place in the Champions League.

The title-chasers versus the relegation dodgers

The league’s top two met midweek in Der Klassiker. Bayern Munich took the victory, defeating Borussia Dortmund 1-0 away. FC Bayern now find themselves very much in control of the league, leading the pack with a seven-point gap. Both clubs will be pushing to secure a win this weekend, with each facing a desperate team in a battle to get away from the relegation positions at the bottom of the league table.  

BAYERN MUNICH VS FORTUNA DUSSELDORF: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

Bayern Munich enter the fixture dripping with confidence, and expecting the full three points, following their outstanding display of heroics at the Westfalenstadion. Being both the home side and league leaders, Bayern Munich go into the match as overwhelming favourites, at 2/33 (1.06) to win, with Fortuna Dusseldorf’s chances measured at a lowly 34/1 (35.00).

SC PADERBORN VS BORUSSIA DORTMUND: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

Borussia Dortmund know they need to make amends for the points dropped during their home defeat to Bayern Munich last Tuesday.  With time running out to make a last-ditch effort to overtake the Bundesliga leaders, Borussia Dortmund must take advantage of being favourites to win away at 4/11 (1.36); SC Paderborn, meanwhile, are fighting to avoid being cut adrift at the bottom of the table and find themselves at 77/10 (8.70).

The rest of the league

With European places up for grabs, plenty of teams are fighting to emerge from the congested mid-table pack.

FC Koln

Yet to win a game following the restart of the season, and suffering a disastrous midweek 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim, FC Koln are in a downward spiral, slipping further down the league table.  With only eight-points separating their current 11th position and a spot into the Europa League, FC Koln have everything to play for, and more than enough talent to transform their fortunes through the upcoming fixtures.

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig will be feeling like they’ve lost two important points following a disappointing 2-2 midweek draw against Hertha BSC. Although they still find themselves above their main rivals for third-place, Borussia Mönchengladbach, RB Leipzig will treat their away fixture against FC Koln as an opportunity to break away from a very tight position in the table.

FC KOLN VS RB LEIPZIG: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

RB Leipzig head into the fixture as strong favourites, at 5/9 (1.57) to win, with the home team, FC Koln, finding themselves at 22/5 (5.30) to cause an upset.

Freiburg

Coming off an intense 3-3 midweek draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt, Freiburg are yet another team yet who have failed to secure a win following the restart of the Bundesliga. Currently in the middle of a very changeable table – with few points making the difference either way – Freiburg need to claim victory at home to Bayer Leverkusen this Friday if they have any desire to be amongst the best of Europe next season.

Bayer Leverkusen

After being smashed 4-1 at home by a superior Wolfsburg team last Tuesday, Bayer Leverkusen head into their upcoming fixture against Freiburg potentially stripped of confidence but knowing the importance that a victory could have on the final positions of the Bundesliga. Level with Borussia Mönchengladbach in fourth place, Bayern Leverkusen must capitalise on this opportunity against weaker opposition, and take all three points in an effort to secure their goal of Champions League football next season.

FREIBURG VS BAYER LEVERKUSEN: BETTING ODDS

Despite being the travelling team, Bayer Leverkusen, are favourites to come out on top at 5/7 (1.56) to win, with Freiburg’s chances calculated at 27/7 (5.40).

BUNDESLIGA BETTING PREVIEW: WEEK 27

The Bundesliga is back in full swing and about to enjoy the second week of football since its return. The rivalries between the top teams in Germany have resumed, with Week 27 featuring incredible match-ups all round. With plenty of exciting action ahead, we’ve got you covered for Bundesliga betting.

With the top three teams facing difficult competition over the weekend, the Bundesliga table could be set for a reshuffle. First-place Bayern Munich welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Allianz Arena, Borussia Dortmund travel east to Wolfsburg, and third place Borussia Mönchengladbach find themselves scrapping for position against Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayern Munich

There were no surprises for Bayern Munich fans, as the 29 times winners of the Bundesliga returned with a 2-0 victory over Union Berlin last Sunday. Pushing for their eighth consecutive league trophy, Hans-Dieter Flick will be making sure his team are in perfect physical and mental condition to take on what could be a tricky opponent. 

Now with 26 goals to his name in the competition, Bayern Munich’s lead striker Robert Lewandowski shows no sign of letting up, having returned to action with a goal. FC Bayern can also call on the exciting Serge Gnabry and the ever-impressive Thomas Mueller.

Eintracht Frankfurt

Coming off a 1-3 defeat to league rivals, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to get some points on the board for what could prove to be a turbulent end of the season for last year’s seventh-place finishers.

With ups and downs throughout their 2019/20 campaign, The Eagles will be looking to secure any points they can in an effort to push them up from a lowly 13th place in a tight Bundesliga table.

BAYERN MUNICH VS EINTRACH FRANKFURT: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

As expected, home side Bayern Munich, are fierce favourites to go on and win the match-up, at 3/20 (1.15), with Eintracht Frankfurt’s chances measured at 15/1 (16.00), to come out on top.

Borussia Dortmund

Second-place Borussia Dortmund hit the ground running last week as 19-year-old starlet, Erling Braut Haaland, continued his immense form and opened the floodgates, leading to a 4-0 thrashing of Schalke 04 in the Revierderby.

Fighting to contest Bayern Munich’s for the Bundesliga’s top spot, the young guns in Dortmund are sure to be laser-focused on obtaining the next three points, and put their long-time rivals, Wolfsburg, to the sword.

Wolfsburg

Fans of Wolfsburg were relieved to be saved by a last-minute winner from centre-forward, Daniel Ginczek, in their contest against Augsburg last Saturday. With an 11-point gap between them and fifth-place rivals, Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg will know that they will need to push beyond realistic expectations to secure a chance at qualification to the Europa League.

Looking to their fixture against Borussia Dortmund, The Wolves will be eager to make some headway on their current 6th place position on the table, knowing lower teams are only a few points away, and could easily leapfrog them over the weekend.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND VS WOLFSBURG: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

It’s no surprises that the home team, Wolfsburg, come out as underdogs at 73/20 (4.65) to win the fixture, with Borussia Dortmund favourites, at 3/4 (1.75).

Borussia Mönchengladbach

Borussia Mönchengladbach came into the first fixture since the shutdown flying, replicating their fantastic start to the beginning of the season. They scored two goals in the first 10 minutes, against a highly competent Eintracht Frankfurt team. They would see out the game and finish with a 3-1 victory that demonstrated why they were able to stay at the top of the league table for most of the year.

Now at home to a strong Bayer Leverkusen side, fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach will have the chance to see their team line-up against strong opposition and make an effort at a late charge towards the coveted top two places of the Bundesliga.

Bayer Leverkusen

Securing a stunning 4-1 victory away from home, courtesy of two goals from 20-year-old attacking midfielder, Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen will be readying themselves for the chance to overtake not only Borussia Mönchengladbach but also Borussia Dortmund through goal difference, this weekend.

With a rare opportunity to face their direct table rivals, and knowing a win would ensure that they take their opponent’s higher place in the table, Bayer Leverkusen should be fired up this weekend.

BORUSSIA MÖNCHENGLADBACH VS BAYER LEVERKUSEN: BUNDESLIGA BETTING ODDS

One of the tightest games to call in the Bundesliga this weekend, Borussia Mönchengladbach come out on top thanks to home advantage, as slight favourites at 7/5 (2.40) to win the fixture, while Bayer Leverkusen find themselves at 9/5 (2.80) to cause an upset.
