Bundesliga had a busy week, with three rounds packed inside seven days. Round 18 is ahead of us, and there will be plenty of new chances to profit while betting. The central game is in Munich, where Bayern hosts Eintracht Frankfurt, while the other derby is located in Leverkusen, where Werder plays against Dortmund.
Bayern Munich VS Eintracht Frankfurt
The Bavarians have two draws in a row, and we can say they disappointed since the restart. Bundesliga champs played 1-1 in Leipzig against Red Bull, and after that, recorded the same result at home against Koln, saving that one point with a very late goal. The realization remains the main problem for Nagelsmann’s crew with Sadio Mane out.
The Eagles from Frankfurt played in Freiburgh on Wednesday, getting away with one point, 1-1. Previously, the reigning Europa League winners defeated Schalke 3-0 in the opening game of the second part of the year. Eintracht is the second-best road game in the Bundesliga, with four wins in eight road trips, and a 15-12 goal difference.
Bayern should win here. At some point, their attack will show up and start pounding, and Frankfurt’s defense isn’t too strong to be a problem for the Bavarians. That’s why we take hosts to win and cover a 1.5-goal handicap.
Pick: Bayern -1.5 5/6 at BetXchange
Bayer Leverkusen VS Borussia Dortmund
These two teams are looking pretty well in the recent two respective events. They have back-to-back victories, started to look serious, and the morale is high in both locker rooms. Bayer was better than Borussia Monchengladbach on the road in the first game since the pause, 2-3 and then routinely beat Bochum, 2-0.
On the other side, Borussia survived a firework last weekend, beating Augsburg at home, 4-3 and then went on the road to visit Mainz, where Millionaires posted another win, 1-2. As usual, Borussia allowed at least a goal when playing away from Signal Iduna, and in these nine road evens, they’ve conceded 18 tines while netting 12.
Bayer’s attack is a better part of the team, and it seems that Kolo Mouani and the guys are in excellent shape. The same applies to Dortmund’s offense, which is why both teams’ scoring is the best possible pick here.
Pick: Both teams to score 1/2 at BetXchange
RB Leipzig VS Stuttgart
The Bulls were merciless against Schalke in Gelsenkirchen. They won 1-6 at the former Veltins Arena, inflicting one of the toughest losses to the Miners in their history. Previously, Marco Rose’s crew met with Bayern Munich at home, and took one point, 1-1. They were well against the champions, trading blows with the guests from Munich, presenting a worthy rival.
The Schwabs had two draws in the past two events. They came back following the pause against Mainz, 1-1 at home, before playing 2-2 on the road in Hoffenheim. This team is just above the relegation zone in Bundesliga and needs to collect points all the time to avoid the worst-case scenario.
Regarding this event, there is no other option but to bet on the hosts to take all three points. They are more than massive favorites on Friday night, and knowing that this unit has the best record at home RB’s win here is our suggestion.
Pick: RB Leipzig 2/5 at BetXchance
Schalke VS Koln
The Miners are awful, and it seems that they will get relegated to the second tier at the end of the campaign. Right now, they have nine points and are hammered to the bottom of the standings. They lost to Eintracht in Frankfurt, 3-0, before losing at home to RB Leipzig 1-6.
Koln rolled over Werder at home, 7-1, presenting one of their best games over the last few years. After that, the Billy Goats met with Bayern in Munich and resisted the pressure of the champs, taking a point at the Allianz Arena, 1-1. Furthermore, they dominated the pitch most of the time.
This is the perfect moment for Koln to take three points on the road, and we will accept some risk here, picking the visitors to take three points.
Pick: Koln wins 9/10 at BetXchange
