Top Bundesliga Games to Watch this Week (Apr. 21st – 25th)
Wednesday, April 21st Matches
- Monchengladbach +114 / Hoffenheim +206
Hoffenheim isn’t in great form. The home team shows 3 losses and 2 draws. Gladbach has won 3-of-4. Hoffenheim won the last head-to-head but that was in December. Monchengladbach gets the nod.
Soccer Pick: Monchengladbach
- Wolfsburg -102 / Stuttgart +238
This should be a competitive match. On Dec. 20, Stuttgart beat Wolfsburg 1-0. Both Stuttgart and Wolfsburg have lost 2 straight. The home team offers overlay odds, making them the play.
Soccer Pick: Stuttgart
Friday, April 23rd Match
- Cologne +148 / Augsburg +179
It’s tough to back either one of these teams. Augsburg’s form leaves much to be desired. The home team in this has lost 3-of-5 with a win and a draw. Cologne upset Leipzig 2-1 on April 20, which is why they’re the chalk. But it’s tough to back Cologne to win 2 straight while Augsburg is due for some luck.
Soccer Pick: Augsburg
Saturday, April 24th Matches
- Hoffenheim +149 / Freiburg +162
Hoffenheim has 3 losses and 2 draws in their last 5. Freiburg won their last match. The home team in this beat Schalke 04 by 4 goals on April 17. The win shows Freiburg can beat a lousy squad. Hoffenheim is a good team. Freiburg has home pitch advantage. We’re grabbing the odds on Freiburg.
Soccer Pick: Freiburg
- Bayern Munich -1 ½ (-161) / Mainz +1 ½ (+120)
Mainz is in terrific form. They’ve won 3 and drawn twice in their last 5. Bayern is on a 2-match winning streak, beating PSG 1-0 and Wolfsburg 3-2. If the payout odds were reversed, we’d side with Bayern. But because Mainz offers more than even money and is also getting a goal and a half, they’re the play.
Soccer Pick: Mainz
- Werder Bremen +301 / Union Berlin -116
Union Berlin has beaten Werder by 2 goals in the last couple of head-to-head matches. Werder is in awful form. UB beat Stuttgart 2-1 on April 17. If MyBookie posts fair handicap odds on the home chalk, consider.
Soccer Pick: Union Berlin
- Dortmund +110 / Wolfsburg +202
Dortmund lost a Champions League game versus Man City on April 14. There’s no shame in that. What really impresses is how Dortmund bounced back with a 4-1 victory over Werder in their next match. Wolfsburg is on a 2-match losing streak. Also, Dortmund won the last couple of head-to-head matches by 2-0 scores.
Soccer Pick: Dortmund
- Frankfurt +188 / Leverkusen +124
Leverkusen has a shot. But the odds make the home squad an underlay. Frankfurt has won 4-of-5. So even though Leverkusen beat Frankfurt 4-1 on Jan. 12, the road squad is the play.
Soccer Pick: Frankfurt
Sunday, April 25th Matches
- Stuttgart +1 ½ (-135) / Leipzig -1 ½ (+102)
Leipzig is a tough play to beat any Bundesliga rival by more than a goal. The odds make Stuttgart unplayable on the handicap, though. We’ll cross our fingers and hope the home team covers at -1 ½.
Soccer Pick: Leipzig
- Arminia Bielefeld +1 ½ (-175) / Monchengladbach -1 ½ (+129)
Sometimes, as soccer handicappers, we must make decisions based on payout odds. When it comes to Bielefeld versus Gladbach, it’s obvious. The payout odds are much better on the home team. So even though a case can be made for Arminia to lose by no more than a goal, the -175 pushes us towards Monchen to get it done.
Soccer Pick: Monchengladbach
