The German Bundesliga remains one of the most exciting leagues in Europe. This season, it has lived up to expectations in terms of goals, intrigue and drama.
Bayern Munich is one win away from clinching a 9th consecutive league title. The Bavarians have once again been heads and shoulders above other teams in the division.
Borussia Dortmund has been underwhelming by their standards. The Black and Yellows are on the cusp of missing out on qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League. They are in 5th position, 5 points behind Wolfsburg in 4th place.
Four games are left to the conclusion of the league season. Hence, some betting patterns have emerged to help increase the winning chances of punters.
Here are five of them:
Over 2.5 Goals For Games Involving Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund continues to excite the fans with its expansive style of play, season after season. The former league champions under interim manager, Edin Terzic have continued with their tradition of aggressive counter-press out of possession and a quick break during offensive transitions.
BVB is the second highest scoring team with 62 goals scored in 29 matches. They also get to concede quite heavily as a result of their terrible set-piece defending.
Dortmund has a plethora of young and exciting talents led by Norwegian wonderkid, Erlin Braut Haaland. The 20-year-old has scored 23 goals in this league campaign.
So far, 22 Bundesliga matches involving Terzic’s men have ended with over 2.5 goals scored.
Both Teams To Score In Matches Involving Eintracht Frankfurt
Frankfurt has been the surprise team of the season. From finishing in 9th place last term, Die Adler (The Eagles)as they are fondly called currently sit in third place on the log.
The Hesse-based club has been entertaining to watch in this campaign. Only the leaders and Dortmund have scored more goals than them. This has been largely due to the goalscoring prowess of Andre Silva. The Spain International has scored 24 goals this season.
Adi Hutter’s men also tend to concede frequently. In fact, they have let in 44 goals (the most amongst the top four teams) so far.
80 per cent of matches involving Frankfurt this season have finished with both teams scoring.
This is a must-have option for punters interested in the Bundesliga market.
Over 1.5 Goals In Games Featuring Freiburg
This option is one that promises sustainable returns for punters.
Freiburg is placed 9th on the log with very similar numbers to last season’s outing. The Breisgau Brazilians love to score and concede in the same proportion. They have scored 44 goals but also shipped in 42 in the same period.
Long-serving manager, Christian Streich favours a more direct style of football, characterised by long and vertical passes to the flanks. However, individual errors from the old and experienced legs in defence continue to cost them dearly.
This season, Freiburg has recorded a fascinating tally of 25 over 1.5 goals in their league matches.
Corners Bet On Wolfsburg Matches
The season is shaping up to be a particularly successful one for Die Wolfe (The Wolves). They are holding firmly to the fourth Champions League spot while also being two points adrift of Frankfurt in third place.
Oliver Glasner has done a remarkable job with this team. The German tactician has been able to structure his team to play with varying styles.
The 2015 DFB-Pokal champions are comfortable in possession. However, they also capable of punting long balls forward for Wout Weghorst to hold up and play in teammates.
Ridle Baku’s excellent deliveries from the right-back position is also a potent offensive tactic for Glasner’s men. In defence, they aggressively counter-press opposing defenders forcing them to concede corners.
Wolfsburg have recorded an average of 10.4 corners in the league this season. Hence, this is a wise option for punters with interests in the Bundesliga market.
Cards Bet On Schalke 04
For the first time in 33 years, Die Königsblauen (The Royal Blues) have been relegated. They managed to garner just 13 points from 30 matches.
Schalke is one of the most supported clubs in Germany. They qualified for the round of 16 of the Champions League two seasons ago.
The seven-time champions have been blighted by instability having gone through five managers in this campaign. Even with the acquisition of Shokdran Mustafi from in January, the defense has continued to leak goals. They have conceded 76 goals up till this point.
Dimmitrios Grammozis’ men have been very undisciplined in the Bundesliga; reckless tackles and violent conducts have been typical characteristics of the defence.
They have earned 60 yellow cards at an average of 2 per match this term.
For any punter looking to cash out big in the cards market, an over 4.5 yellow cards in games involving Schalke is an outstanding option.
