Struggling Mainz travel to Wolfsburg in search of only their second win of the season. High-flying Leipzig welcome Schalke to the Red Bull Arena while Koln and Hertha battle it out in a bottom of the table clash on Sunday.
Let’s get stuck into the Bundesliga’s best bets for Round 6.
Mainz vs. Wolfsburg – 9/28/19
Mainz are struggling this season. They have lost 4 of their 5 league games so far and also possess the worst defensive record in the division. Mainz have conceded 15 goals (at an average of 3 goals per game) and have only managed to score 5 in reply. On the other hand, Wolfsburg remain unbeaten having won 2 and drawn 3 in the Bundesliga this term. Considering the difference in form between the two teams, a Wolfsburg win looks likely, and because the Wolves are away from home on Saturday, you can get a fantastic price.
Pick: Wolfsburg to Win – 2.30
RB Leipzig vs. Schalke 04 - 9/28/19
Leipzig are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga table following 4 wins and a draw from their opening 5 league matches. Schalke are enjoying a promising start to the season but I can’t see them upsetting the league leaders in this one. If you look at Leipzig’s wins this term, the team has scored at least 2 goals in every match that it has taken 3 points from. For that reason, a home win and Over 1.5 Goals for Leipzig makes sense. Leipzig striker Timo Werner has 5 goals already this season, and you’d be foolish to bet against him adding to his tally this weekend.
Pick: RB Leipzig to Win and Over 1.5 Goals – 1.67
FC Koln vs. Hertha Berlin - 9/29/19
Both Koln and Hertha have made disappointing starts to the campaign. Koln are 16th with 3 points to their name while Hertha sit a place above them on 4 points. Both teams have conceded 11 goals so far, and it’s likely that both sides will get on the scoresheet on Sunday. However, I’m backing Hertha to win this one. They come into this match having beaten Paderborn in the previous round whereas Koln have lost their last 2 league games. Betting on Koln to win and both teams to score offers some very tasty looking odds.
Pick: FC Koln to Win and Both Teams to Score – 3.38
