Top Bundesliga Games to Watch this Weekend (Dec. 12th – 13th)
- When: Friday, Dec. 11 – Sunday, Dec. 13
Friday, Dec. 11th Match
- Frankfurt +218 / Wolfsburg +108
Wolfsburg is in better form, but Frankfurt’s is good enough to warrant backing in this. Frankfurt has drawn in their last 5. A couple of the draws happened versus big time German League squads Dortmund and Leipzig. The underdogs can win.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Frankfurt
Saturday, Dec. 12th Matches
- Stuttgart +1 (-105) / Dortmund -1 (-125)
Bayern beat Stuttgart 3-1 earlier in the season. Dortmund is the better squad. The favored team doesn’t often win by more than a goal, though. Also, Stuttgart does play hard and Dortmund may take this game easy after securing a spot in the Champions League Round of 16 on Dec. 8.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Stuttgart
- Werder Bremen +1 ½ (-123) / RB Leipzig -1 ½ (-107)
Leipzig has won 3-of-4. What happened in the other match? They drew 3-3 with Bayern. RBL should dominate Werder Bremen on Saturday. Yes, a goal and a half is a lot, but Leipzig beat Werder 3-0 on Feb. 15.
Bundesliga Free Pick: RB Leipzig
- Hertha +272 / Monchengladbach -113
Gladbach’s 2-3 loss to Inter Milan and 0-2 loss to Real Madrid in their last couple of Champions League games knocked them from the Round of 16. Expect the chalk to take out their frustrations on overmatched Hertha.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Monchengladbach
- Arminia Bielefeld +312 / Freiburg -126
Arminia is a longshot with a chance. Freiburg has drawn in their last 2 but before that they lost 1-3 versus Mainz. Arminia Bielefeld beat Mainz 2-1 in their last match. At +312, Arminia forces us to back them.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Arminia Bielefeld
- Cologne +166 / Mainz +147
You can almost throw a dart in this matchup. But a deeper look reveals Cologne may have an edge. They beat Dortmund 2-1 on Nov. 28 and drew 2-2 against Wolfsburg on Dec. 5.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Cologne
- Bayern Munich -1 ½ (-138) / Union Berlin +1 ½ (+104)
In the last head-to-head, on May 17, the best club team on the planet put a 2-0 beating onto Union Berlin. Bayern had drawn in 2 straight, versus Ateltico and Leipzig, but beat Locomotiv 2-0 in their last Champions League group play match. They should carry over that performance to Saturday and beat Berline by at least 2 goals.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Bayern Munich
Sunday, Dec. 13th Matches
- Schalke 04 +286 / Augsburg -114
Augsburg represents easy money. Unless Augsburg doesn’t show up, they should win this match. Schalke 04 has lost 4 straight. Also, in the last head-to-head, Augsburg beat Schalke 3-0.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Augsburg
- Hoffenheim +279 / Leverkusen -133
Both teams are in good form. Hoffenheim won the lone meeting this year 2-1. Leverkusen has played better than Hoffenheim in their last 2 games, but the odds don’t justify a wager here. Hoffenheim is an underdog with a chance.
Bundesliga Free Pick: Hoffenheim
