Championship-hopeful Borussia Dortmund will be looking to avoid the huge upset when they host a red-hit Hertha Berlin squad in their matchday 30 showdown on Saturday. With both of these clubs looking to stay hot, let’s find out which one is offering the best value against their Bundesliga betting odds.
Hertha Berlin Vs Dortmund Bundesliga Matchday 30
Why Bet On Borussia Dortmund at -280
Dortmund is sitting in second place in the Bundesliga standings and ranks second in points scored with 80 goals and 35 allowed (+45). Borussia Dortmund has won eight of their last 10 matches and comes into this affair off a resounding 6-1 spanking of Paderborn on Sunday that saw Jadon Sancho light it up with a hat trick while Thorgan Hazard, Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer all added solo goals in the win. The hat trick was the first of Sancho’s career and gave him an impressive 17 goals for the season to go along with 16 assists for the gifted 20-year-old. The win helped Dortmund move up to 60 points while staying in second place in the standings.
Why Bet On Hertha Berlin at +750
Berlin is sitting in ninth place in the 18-team standings with 43 goals scored and 50 goals allowed (-7). Hertha has suffered just two losses over their last 10 games while going 3-1-0 over their last four matches. Berlin comes into this affair off a solid 2-0 shutout win over FC Augsburg at an empty Olympic Stadium on Saturday. Javairo Dilrosun and Krzysztof Piatek each scored for Berlin to lead the way to victory. Hertha was sitting in 13th place when the season resumed its post-pandemic play in mid-May but they’ve yet to be beaten under new coach Bruno Labbadia, their shocking fourth coach this season alone.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
While Hertha has been playing some fantastic soccer in going 3-3-0 over their last six matches, Borussia Dortmund has too much to play for to lose this contest, not to mention they have far more overall talent on their roster than Berlin. Since 2006, these two clubs have met 27 times with Borussia Dortmund going 13-8-6 along the way. Hertha won’t go down easily, but they will fall in a thrilling nail-biter!
