Bayern Munchen versus Monchengladbach is the match of the German Bundesliga round and it just happens that Sunday’s game throws up its best betting opportunity as well.
Backing Bayern Munchen to defeat Monchengladbach without conceding a goal is the play that appeals and BetVictor is accommodating punters who want to bet at odds of -110 .
Bayern Munchen is head and shoulders above the rest of the German Bundesliga teams, hence why it is short odds to post a home win over a Monchengladbach side that is third on the ladder, albeit 20 points behind the pace-setting champion. What makes the suggested bet appealing is Monchengladbach’s low-scoring offence, which really struggles to get out of first gear when it attacks defences on enemy territory.
Monchengladbach is performing remarkably well in the German Bundesliga considering that its offence has scored only 35 goals in its 25 matches. To put that tally into some degree of context, Monchengladbach is the eighth top scoring team in the division and its road scoring statistics of 11 goals in 12 away games are the fifth worst in the competition.
Bayern Munchen has conceded only just 11 goals in its 25 German Bundesliga matches, just four of which have been netted at its Allianz Arena. Monchengladbach has a poor scoring record against the German Bundesliga’s other top-four sides and 10th-placed Dortmund – the Foals have scored five goals in their six divisional games versus Bayern Munchen (0-0 home), Dortmund (0-1 away), Leverkusen (1-1 away), Schalke (4-1 home and 0-1 away) and Wolfsburg (0-1 away), with four of those matches producing blanks.
Of course, backing a team to win to nil involves taking odds that cover a wide range of possibilities. Sometimes it is preferable to dutch selected correct scores than back a side to win to nil but often that is not the case when that side is Bayern Munchen because it has the offensive weaponry to score an outrageous number of goals versus any opponent.
Stick with backing Bayern Munchen to beat Monchengladbach and then move on to a punt on Schalke defeating Leverkusen in their German Bundesliga game scheduled for Saturday.
Every bet that one places should be a value bet and Schalke makes one’s German Bundesliga list for Round 26 because it is a ridiculous price to get the better of a Leverkusen team that will be backing up from a two-hour UEFA Champions League scrap with Atletico Madrid in Spain on Tuesday which saw them exit the Europa League on penalties.
One would like to know what substance Boylesports odds compilers were smoking when they came up with +220 about Schalke beating Leverkusen in Gelsenkirchen. Schalke and Leverkusen are adjacent on the German Bundesliga ladder, with the Royal Blues having a much better home record than the away record of the Factory Team. And Leverkusen’s three German Bundesliga wins on the spin have come against the division’s bottom three teams – Freiburg, Paderborn and Stuttgart. The reverse German Bundesliga fixture resulted in a 1-0 victory for Leverkusen, yet another reason why the Factory Team should not be trading at clear favourites.
Finally, the first German Bundesliga meeting of Stuttgart and Frankfurt was a classic nine-goal thriller so one is interested in backing over two and a half goals at odds of -132 with 888Sport and Unibet for Saturday’s clash.
Frankfurt is the German Bundesliga’s king of over two and a half goals, with 18 of its 25 league matches going over that line, including 10 of its 12 divisional games on the road.
Stuttgart’s German Bundesliga over-two-and-a-half-goals data is not as compelling but it is running out of late to save its skin at the foot of the league ladder and Frankfurt is the type of side that will provide it with opportunities.
