Any opportunity to back Wolfsburg at odds against to win a German Bundesliga game at the moment should interest punters and the Wolves merit top billing at odds of +115 with WilliamHill to triumph at Augsburg.
Wolfsburg’s players must feel that they could walk on water right now. Wolfsburg extended its unbeaten run across all competitions to 14 matches by blowing away Bremen 5-3 on Sunday, Bas Dost scoring another two goals for the Wolves. It is not just the effect that Wolfsburg’s form is having on the Wolves; imagine what it must be like to line up against Dieter Hecking’s high-scoring team – some sides are being beaten before its players step out on to the pitch.
Augsburg boasts one of the German Bundesliga’s finest home records with seven wins, two draws and two losses from its 11 games. But Augsburg’s four German Bundesliga home flops have occurred in its matches versus first-placed Bayern Munchen (0-4), fourth-placed Leverkusen (2-2) and two teams that are in false ladder positions, eight-placed Frankfurt (2-2) and 10th-placed Dortmund (2-3). What those results suggest is that Augsburg cannot cope when it hosts the German Bundesliga’s high-powered offences and Wolfsburg, which has scored 53 goals in its 23 league games, ranks second only to Bayern Munchen in the goal-scoring list.
Wolfsburg defeated Augsburg 1-0 at home in the seventh round of the German Bundesliga and the Wolves were in nowhere near as good form in October as they are heading into Saturday’s match. Wolfsburg is the best bet on the German Bundesliga coupon at odds against – one cannot those odds lasting.
At odds on is Bayern Munchen, which is trading at odds of -400 with WilliamHill, to continue its relentless march to the German Bundesliga championship by beating dreadfully out of form Hannover in Lower Saxony.
One will not labour the point about the quality of Bayern Munchen because what makes this odds-on bet attractive are the limitations of Hannover, which is in danger of being sucked into the relegation scrap. Hannover has failed to win any of its seven German Bundesliga games, matches in which it has faced only one side ranked above it on the ladder.
Bayern Munchen has handed out six consecutive two-plus-goal beatings to Hannover across various competitions since this time three years ago and another emphatic victory for FC Hollywood is likely to occur on Saturday. PaddyPower is offering odds of -137 about Bayern Munchen covering a one-goal handicap, a punt that recent history supports.
One tipped Monchengladbach’s last German Bundesliga road game to end level and one is keen to back the Foals to accrue one point from its away match against Mainz on Saturday, a play that is available at odds of +240 with BetVictor. Mainz’s German Bundesliga home numbers of four wins, four draws and three losses are not a million miles away from Monchengladbach’s away numbers of three wins, four draws and four losses, plus the reverse fixture five months ago resulted in a 1-1 draw.
Nine of Augsburg’s 11 German Bundesliga home matches have gone over two and a half goals – that is the best strike rate in the division – and eight of Wolfsburg’s 11 league away games have gone over that mark. One was expecting to see much shorter odds than -143 about this exotic option.
