Friday 19 March

Arminia Bielefeld  15/2 
Draw 4/1
RB Leipzig 7/20 (21:30)

Arminia Bielefeld open proceedings on Friday night when title-chasing RB Leipzig come to town. The Blues come into the clash high on confidence after their 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen lifted themselves out of the drop zone and ended a seven-match winless streak. RB Leipzig lost more ground on leaders Bayern Munich by playing out to a 1-1 stalemate, just days after being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by Liverpool. The Red Bulls are strong favourites to claim maximum points, my money is on Away Win To Nil at 11/10.

Saturday 20 March

Eintracht Frankfurt  8/10
Draw 11/4 
Union Berlin 32/10 (16:30)

Eintracht Frankfurt rescued a point in the 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig thanks to midfielder Daichi Kamada. The Eagles will be desperate to get back to winning ways after a stellar run of results has been halted with a three-game winless spell. Union Berlin came from behind to snatch all three points against Cologne, stretching their unbeaten run to five matches which include three draws and two wins. The previous ties between these sides have been entertaining goal fests, expect more of the same and select over 2.5 Goals to come home flying at 15/20.

Bayern Munich 2/9
Draw 6/1 
Stuttgart 17/2 (16:30)

Bayern Munich claimed their third straight Bundesliga victory at Werder Bremen last weekend, finding the net 12 times and surprisingly conceding in each of these encounters, but remain undefeated at the Allianz Arena. Stuttgart have been impressive in recent weeks, claiming three wins from four games and held on for a 1-1 stalemate against in-form Eintracht Frankfurt. The Reds come off an excellent 2-0 win over quality opponents Hoffenheim at the Mercedes Benz Arena, and now aim to pounce on a leggy Bayern outfit following midweek UEFA Champions League football. Take Bayern Munich Win & Yes in the Matchbet & Both Teams to Score market at even money.

Cologne 5/1
Draw 7/2
Borussia Dortmund 9/20 (16:30)

Cologne is in deep trouble. The Billy Goats’ 2-1 defeat in the capital against Union Berlin is their fourth loss in five matches as the hosts find themselves just one point from safety with the trio of Arminia Bielefeld, Hertha Berlin and Mainz within touching distance. Borussia Dortmund will be licking their lips at the thought of facing Cologne. The Yellow and Blacks are bankers in this encounter, however, if you’re as confident as I am, back the (-1) Handicap at 12/10.

Werder Bremen 31/10
Draw 5/2
Wolfsburg 9/10 (16:30)

Werder Bremen saw their three-game unbeaten spell snapped when champions Bayern Munich came to town and cantered to a 3-1 victory. The Green-Whites will be desperate to get back to winning ways but will have their work cut out against one of the in-form teams in the Bundesliga. Wolfsburg got over their hiccup at Hoffenheim in style by thrashing bottom-of-the-barrel Schalke 5-0. We were treated to a 5-3 humdinger in the previous meeting between these sides. Instead of the Wolfsburg victory, back Over 2.5 Goals at even money.

Schalke 54/10
Draw 7/2 
Borussia Monchengladbach 9/20 (19:30)

Schalke will soon be mathematically unable to stay in the top-flight and play in 2. Bundesliga for the first time in 30 years. The Royal Blues have conceded 17 league goals, while scoring just once which doesn’t bode well for their chances of survival. Borussia Monchengladbach have the perfect candidate to get back to winning ways. The Foals are enduring a slump of seven Bundesliga matches without a win that include four straight defeats. Clean Sheet Away Team (Yes) offers a decent punt at 6/10.

Sunday 21 March


Hoffenheim 17/20
Draw 28/10
Mainz 29/10 (14:30)

Hoffenheim is one of the most inconsistent teams you will come across in Germany. After being dumped out of the UEFA Europa League by Molde, the hosts went on to end Wolfsburg’s impressive run of results, but then lost to lowly Stuttgart last time out. Mainz, on the other hand, continue their fight to stay in the top-flight, earning valuable points in a 1-0 win over Freiburg. Take Hoffenheim to make home advantage count and edge this encounter.

Hertha Berlin 49/20
Draw 49/20 
Bayer Leverkusen 11/10 (16:30)

Hertha Berlin is dangerously hovering above the relegation zone but there is still hope that they can survive the drop. Yes, the hosts have lost three of their last four league games but the defeats have come at the hands of quality opposition in RB Leipzig, Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund. Bayer Leverkusen suffered their seventh league defeat when Arminia Bielefeld claimed maximum points at the Bay Arena. “Die Werkself” will welcome the trip away from home where they’ve fared slightly better. I’m taking advantage of a wounded Leverkusen and having a punt on Hertha Berlin at 49/20.

Freiburg 19/20
Draw 5/2
Augsburg 28/10 (19:00)

Freiburg would be devastated after losing to second from bottom Mainz last weekend. The Breisgau Brazilians have tasted victory just once from five games and will be raring to go following their embarrassing failure. Augsburg find themselves in 13th position after beating Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1, however, the visitors have a very poor record on their travels, losing four times from their last five trips. This one has draw written all over it. Take these sides to share the spoils for the fourth straight meeting, but if you’re brave, take Correct Score 1-1 at 56/10.

TREBLE @ 8/1
RB Leipzig Away Win To Nil 11/10
Bayern Munich Win & BTTS (Yes) 1/1
Borussia Dortmund (-1) Handicap 12/10
