The German Bundesliga is set to resume on the 16th of May with all 18 teams playing across the weekend. Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Borussia Dortmund are all fighting for the title meaning that the competition is set to get intense as we draw towards the conclusion of the season.
Best bets for Matchday 26 in the German Bundesliga
Augsburg vs Wolfsburg - 5/16/2020
Wolfsburg were having a very strong season prior to the postponement of games. As it currently stands, Wolfsburg are 7th on the ladder and are challenging for a spot in Europe next season. In contrast, Augsburg have been very poor this season and are only 5 points above the relegation zone. Recent form is tough to judge since neither team has played in months but Wolfsburg seems to be the stronger side and the team has better players across the pitch. Despite being away from home, I see Wolfsburg winning this match.
Pick: Wolfsburg - 2.20
Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke - 5/16/2020
Borussia Dortmund are only 4 points behind Bayern Munich and the team will enter this phase of the season with hopes of closing that gap and placing a strong challenge for the title. The biggest strength for Borussia Dortmund has been their attack with the team scoring 68 goals in their 25 games. The likes of Jordan Sancho and Marco Reus have been exceptional. In contrast, the defense has been poor for Borussia Dortmund with the team conceding 33 goals this season. Similarly, Schalke have also been poor in defense this season with the team conceding 36 goals. The last time these two teams played in Dortmund, 6 goals were scored and a similar type of game is expected this time around. The over 3.5 goals is paying well and I see that being the best wager.
Pick: Over 3.5 goals - 2.75
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Borussia Mönchengladbach - 5/17/2020
Borussia Mönchengladbach have been very strong this season and are currently 4th on the ladder, only behind RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, and Bayern Munich. As it currently stands, Borussia Mönchengladbach will be hoping to secure a grip on a spot in the Champions League, and the team looks well placed for this task considering their balanced squad. In contrast, Eintracht Frankfurt have struggled this season and currently 12th on the ladder. Despite their home advantage, it is unlikely that Eintracht Frankfurt have the quality of players required to compete against a side like Borussia Mönchengladbach. We are getting a great price on this wager so I am going to pick Borussia Mönchengladbach to win this match.
Pick: Borussia Mönchengladbach - 2.25
