Red-hot RB Leipzig will look to take care of business at home when they host visiting SC Paderborn in their Bundesliga matchup on Saturday, June 6. With Leipzig looking to stay hot and Paderborn looking to pull off the insanely huge upset, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their Bundesliga betting odds.
Bundesliga Paderborn vs RB Leipzig Matchday 30
Why Bet On Leipzig at -700
RB Leipzig has not lost in their last 11 matches and comes into this matchup fresh off a commanding 4-2 win over Cologne on Monday. The win helped Leipzig move into third place in the Bundesliga standings as Patrik Schick, Christopher Nkunku, Timo Werner and Dani Olmo all found the back of the net. Leipzig controlled the ball 53 percent of the time while racking up a whopping 19 shots and limiting Cologne to just seven shots. Leipzig has put 74 goals into the net while allowing just 31 defensively to rank second in the Bundesliga in goals allowed.
Why Bet On Paderborn at +1400
Paderborn is in last place in the Bundesliga standings with just 32 goals scored and 61 allowed (-29). To make matters worse, Paderborn was beaten senseless in their last outing, falling to Borussia Dortmund 6-1 on Sunday. Paderborn gave up a hat trick to Jadon Sancho while never coming close to pulling off the upset despite the fact that young superstar Erling Haaland sat out for Dortmund with an injury. Paderborn got a solos goal from Uwe Hünemeier, but they lost the possession battle 67-33 percent while giving up a generous 16 shots while recording a modest nine of their own.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
There’s no sense in beating around the bush with my pick on this mismatch of a matchup. RB Leipzig is a legitimate title contender while Paderborn has looked completely and utterly awful since the start of the 2020 campaign. RB Leipzig has scored 11 goals on a mind-boggling 50 shot attempts in their last three league games and they’ve suffered just one home loss in their last 21 Bundesliga matchups on their home pitch. With that said, SC Paderborn simply does not have the talent to compete with a clearly superior Leipzig squad in this affair. I’m going with red-hot Leipzig to get it done in this one by at least two goals while the final score tops the set O/U total.
