There are nine Bundesliga games to look forward to on Matchday 26, three of which I have chosen to feature in this post. Hoffenheim and Hertha look set for a tense battle, while Leipzig should claim a high-scoring win over Freiburg. Elsewhere, can Werder Bremen upset the odds against Bayer Leverkusen?
Let’s check out this week’s best value Bundesliga bets.
Hoffenheim vs. Hertha Berlin – 3/14/20
Both these teams come into this game on a poor run of form. Hoffenheim have slipped to ninth in the table following a five-game winless streak, while Hertha have only managed to win one of their previous five. Hertha are now just six points clear of the bottom three and have drawn their last two matchups. Hoffenheim have also claimed two draws in their last three outings. There really isn’t much to separate these two teams right now. Both need a win, but neither side will want to lose this game. For that reason, a draw is looking likely on Saturday.
Pick: The Draw – 3.75
RB Leipzig vs. Freiburg – 3/14/20
RB Leipzig will be looking to build on their impressive 3-0 victory over English club Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League in midweek. Leipzig are unbeaten in their last six league games and thrashed Schalke 5-0 before securing well-earned draws with both Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg. After showing some promise early in the season, Freiburg are now eighth – 14 points behind Leipzig – and have only managed to win one of their previous four outings. Leipzig should win this comfortably, but odds of 1.20 for the home win don’t offer much value. Instead, I’m backing Leipzig to score over 2.5 goals on their way to victory.
Pick: RB Leipzig to Win and Over 2.5 Goals – 1.80
Werder Bremen vs. Bayer Leverkusen – 3/16/20
Werder Bremen have won just one of their last eleven league games and are in serious danger of relegation. They only sit two points ahead of bottom club Paderborn and are now eight points from safety. At the other end of the table, Bayer Leverkusen have won four of their previous five league games and now sit fifth – ten points clear of sixth-place Schalke. Due to Bayer’s away status in this fixture, the odds for the Leverkusen win are very attractive. Bayer should win this with ease.
Pick: Bayer Leverkusen to Win – 1.80
