Top Bundesliga Games to Watch and Bet On This Weekend

Stuttgart +1 ½ (-151) vs RB Leipzig -1 ½ (+114)

  • When: Friday, Aug. 20

Leipzig did not play well in their first Bundesliga match of the season. Mainz upset RBL 1-0. No doubt, Leipzig should beat Stuttgart, but it’s difficult seeing them beating the road team by more than a goal. Still, the odds on Stuttgart make them unplayable. Back Leipzig to cover.  

Soccer Pick: RB Leipzig  

Dortmund -1 ½ (+128) vs Freiburg +1 ½ (-172)

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Freiburg is a good team and Dortmund looked terrible in the 1-3 loss to Bayern Munich on Aug. 17. The odds make the home team an underlay. Dortmund isn’t exactly an overlay at -1 ½ +128. But it’s tough to make a case for Freiburg at -172.

Soccer Pick: Dortmund

Wolfsburg +130 vs Hertha +195

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Wolfsburg has won 2 straight while Hertha dropped a match to Cologne on Aug. 15. Last season, Wolfsburg was one of the biggest surprises in the Bundesliga. So far, they’ve shown they’ll hang with teams like Dortmund, Monchengladbach, and Leipzig this season. 

Soccer Pick: Wolfsburg  

Mainz +165 vs Bochum +150

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

These two have drawn in their last couple of head-to-head matches. Bochum is a quality soccer team. Mainz has already shown they’re better this season than last season. The draw is a good play. If you don’t believe in the draw, both offer great odds. So you can’t go wrong no matter which bet you decide to play. We like Bochum. 

Soccer Pick: Bochum  

Arminia Bielefeld +165 vs Greuther Furth +155 

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Greuther Furth has lost 3 straight. The 1-5 loss to Stuttgart on Aug. 14 suggests the home team is one of the worst in the Bundesliga this season. By no means is Bielefeld a great, or even good, soccer club. But Arminia shouldn’t offer +165. Grab the overlay odds on the road squad.  

Soccer Pick: Arminia Bielefeld  

Monchengladbach +195 vs Leverkusen +124

  • When: Saturday, Aug. 21

Gladbach versus Leverkusen sets up as one of this weekend’s more competitive Bundesliga matches. Leverkusen drew 1-1 with Union Berlin in their first match of the season. Monchengladbach drew 1-1 with Bayern. Gladbach’s draw impresses more than Leverkusen’s.  

Soccer Pick: Monchengladbach  

Union Berlin +235 vs Hoffenheim +105

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 22

Hoffenheim is back to blasting lesser opponents. On Aug. 14, the home team dominated Augsburg 4-0. Berlin’s draw with Leverkusen was nice. But Hoffenheim figures to stay hot since this happens on their pitch. 

Soccer Pick: Hoffenheim   

Cologne +2 ½ (-128) vs Bayern Munich -2 ½ (-103)

  • When: Sunday, Aug. 22

Although Bayern should win this, they’re unplayable on both the moneyline and handicap. Bayern’s 3-1 beating of Dortmund in their last was nice. It’s not as nice as Cologne’s 4-match winning streak. Backing Cologne on the moneyline is asking too much. Cologne forcing a draw isn’t. 

Soccer Pick: Draw
