Friday 8 November 

Dortmund 2/11
Draw 13/2

Saturday 9 November 

Werder Bremen 29/20
Draw 51/20
Schalke 17/10
Werder Bremen are without a win in their last seven matches and have registered just one win from five home games. Schalke have been inconsistent to say the least but have won three of their last four matches on the road.

Both sides will be looking to bag all three points here which makes for a thrilling game of football. Get on Both Teams to Score – Yes – at 5/10. 

Bayer Leverkusen 5/10
Draw 7/2
Freiburg 5/1
Bayer Leverkusen ended a winless run of five matches last time out with a 2-0 victory away to Wolfsburg. Freiburg have been impressive on the road with three wins from five matches and will look to keep the record intact.

The last three meetings between these sides have produced just two goals but Saturday’s clash looks likely to end in a high-scoring affair. The Totals – Over 2.5 goals – market is tipped at 5/10. 

Union Berlin 24/10
Draw 51/20
Borussia Monchengladbach 21/20
Newcomers Union Berlin have been impressive in recent weeks with three wins from their last four games, including back-to-back victories. Table-toppers Monchengladbach have been excellent with eight wins from 11 matches.

The hosts will look to keep this one tight from the first blow of the whistle. The Totals – Under 2.5 goals – market is tipped at 11/10. 

Eintracht Frankfurt 21/20
Draw 26/10
Wolfsburg 24/10
Eintracht Frankfurt have the best home record in the league with four wins and two draws from six matches, including a 5-1 thrashing of Bayern Munich. Wolfsburg have been poor of late with two losses on the bounce, conceding five goals without scoring.

The Eagles are looking deadly at home and offer excellent value for money to claim the victory. Back Eintracht Frankfurt to get the win. 

Fortuna Dusseldorf 11/1
Draw 6/1
Bayern Munich 2/11
Dusseldorf have been dismal with just three wins from 11 matches but have won their last two games at home. However, Bayern Munich are off the back of a brilliant 4-0 victory at home against Borussia title-rivals Borussia Dortmund and will be looking to pick up where they left off.

The Bavarians are expected to dominate from the get go. Take Bayern Munich to Score in Both Halves at 11/20. 

Leipzig 7/20
Draw 9/2
Cologne 13/2
Leipzig have been impressive of late with back-to-back wins, scoring 12 goals and conceding just twice. Cologne are placed second from bottom of the log and have lost their last three matches, scoring twice and conceding seven times.

The Red Bulls will be focused on chasing the log leaders down and should come out firing on Saturday evening. Take Leipzig on the (-1) Handicap at 17/20. 

Sunday 10 November 

Augsburg 31/20 
Draw 5/2
Hertha Berlin 16/10
Augsburg did well to ground out a narrow 1-0 victory away to Paderborn before the international break. Hertha Berlin have been in terrible form with three consecutive defeats and have managed just one win from six travels.

The last three meetings have produced 15 goals at an average of five per game. The Totals – Over 2.5 goals – market should be backed at 13/20. 

Hoffenheim 13/20
Draw 31/10
Mainz 15/4
Hoffenheim have been outstanding in recent weeks with five straight wins! Mainz have been poor in recent weeks with three losses from their last four games, including back-to-back defeats. Enough said, the hosts are my best bet of the weekend, so make sure you climb on at 13/20! 

Dortmund HT-FT Win 5/10
Leipzig (-1) Handicap 17/20
Hoffenheim Win 13/20
