Top Bundesliga Games to Watch this Week (Apr. 9th – 12th)
Friday, April 9th Match
- Freiburg +123 / Arminia Bielefeld +217
Neither team shows dominating form. Arminia has a couple of losses and a draw in their last five. The win happened versus a good team, Leverkusen. Freiburg has lost 3-of-4. The road squad in this did beat Augsburg on March 21. On Dec. 12, Freiburg beat Bielefeld 2-0. That’s the key stat in this game.
Soccer Free Pick: Freiburg
Saturday, April 10th Matches
- RB Leipzig -1 ½ (+131) / Werder Bremen +1 ½ (-175)
Leipzig has a couple of wins, a couple of losses, and a draw in their last five. Although RB’s form isn’t great they’re a massive favorite on the moneyline versus Werder. Leipzig can manage a victory by more than two goals here. They beat Bremen on Dec. 12. On Feb. 15, 2020, Leipzig beat Werder 3-0.
Soccer Free Pick: RB Leipzig
- Wolfsburg +202 / Frankfurt +119
Frankfurt is on a two-match winning streak. The home squad in this beat Union Berlin 5-2 on March 20. On April 3, Frankfurt upset Dortmund 2-1. Wolfsburg is on a three-match winning streak. But beating Schalke 04, Werder Bremen, and Cologne doesn’t impress. Backing Frankfurt on the moneyline looks like the best play.
Soccer Free Pick: Frankfurt
- Monchengladbach +120 / Hertha +202
Hertha has a shot because they drew with Monchengladbach in the last head-to-head. But Gladbach appears back on track after beating Schalke 3-0 on March 20 and besting Freiburg 2-1 on April 3. Monchengladbach gets the nod.
Soccer Free Pick: Monchengladbach
- Union Berlin +1 ½ (-121) / Bayern Munich -1 ½ (-108)
Bayern will be without their best player, Robert Lewandowski, for a while. That should give Berlin backers some confidence. But Bayern is deep enough to make up for Lewandowski’s absence. Even though these two drew in the last head-to-head, Bayern looks like the better play on the handicap than the road squad.
Soccer Free Pick: Bayern Munich
- Dortmund -125 / Stuttgart +277
Unless Dortmund upsets Manchester City earlier in the week, they may not show decent enough form to back on the moneyline. The road favorites drew with cellar-dweller Cologne on March 20 before losing straight up to Frankfurt on April 3. Save for a loss to Bayern on March 20, Stuttgart has played well enough to garner a look in this.
Soccer Free Pick: Stuttgart
Sunday, April 11th Matches
- Augsburg +118 / Schalke 04 +217
Augsburg isn’t a great soccer team, but their opponent on Sunday is dreadful. Schalke 04 has 10 points, which means they’re 22 points behind Augsburg. These two drew in the last head-to-head. Don’t expect a draw in the rematch.
Soccer Free Pick: Augsburg
- Mainz +137 / Cologne +195
Cologne beat Mainz 1-0 on Dec. 12. Mainz is in much better form now, but this happens on Cologne’s pitch. Mainz could take a backward step in this. The home team offers better odds and they might be due for a victory.
Soccer Free Pick: Cologne
Monday, April 12th Match
- Leverkusen +137 / Hoffenheim +171
Hoffenheim requires a massive form reversal to win this. Hoff has lost three in a row, including dropping a match 1-2 against Augsburg on April 3. On Dec. 13, in the last head-to-head, Leverkusen beat Hoffenheim 4-1. Leverkusen could win by a similar score on Monday. The +137 odds may be a gift.
