Bayern Munchen has kept six consecutive clean sheets and it has won five of its last half a dozen matches to nil so one is keen on backing the German Bundesliga champion shutting out one of the division’s worst travellers, Hannover.
Hannover had the worst German Bundesliga road record of all bar the bottom three teams last season and the 96ers were on track for the wooden spoon of away sides before they claimed victory on each of their last two trips of the campaign.
Not much has changed regarding Hannover’s away form despite the change of seasons. Hannover’s first German Bundesliga road games have resulted in three blanks from a scoring perspective and only one point after losses at Paderborn and Stuttgart and a draw at Mainz. One would be willing to bet that none of Hannover’s three previous away opponents will finish on the top half of the German Bundesliga ladder and that Bayern Munchen will run away with the championship.
Bayern Munchen and Hannover met three times across various competitions last term and Bayern won the three matches by a cumulative 10-1 score. Paddy Power is offering odds of -110 that Bayern Munchen beats Hannover to nil – Bayern has won half of its 20 German Bundesliga home games under Pep Guardiola without conceding a goal to its guest.
Monchengladbach and Mainz are two of German Bundesliga’s four undefeated teams but one thinks that the former will prolong its stay near the top of the ladder with a home victory over the latter at odds of -109 with BetVictor.
The German Bundesliga season kicked off with one wanting to oppose Mainz following summer upheaval, an embarrassing 2-3 UEFA Europa League aggregate loss to Greece’s Asteras and a German DFB-Pokal exit in which it conceded five goals in 120 minutes of crazy action at third-tier Chemnitz. And one has not changed one’s mind even though Mainz is fourth on the German Bundesliga ladder after two wins and four draws.
Mainz was just seconds away from losing at Paderborn and it failed to beat Hannover at home so one is inclined to think that the 05ers are nothing special. Monchengladbach is two rungs above Mainz on the German Bundesliga ladder and, if one respects collateral form lines, the one that exists favours the former because it won 2-1 at Paderborn.
Dortmund ought to be too good for Hamburg in the Ruhr Valley but BVB are not playing well enough for one to get excited about them at short odds. So, for one’s third and final German Bundesliga bet, one is going to propose both sides to score in the match between Bremen and Freiburg, an option that is at odds of -167 with Boylesports and Ladbrokes.
Neither Bremen nor Freiburg has won a German Bundesliga game this term, primarily because neither team is solid at the back. Bremen has not kept a clean sheet in any of its seven matches across all competitions, conceding two or more goals in six of its games. On the bright side, Bremen has scored goals of its own in six of its seven matches but, as the saying goes, defence wins games and Bremen has a bad one.
Freiburg has managed three clean sheets in its seven games across all competitions but two of them occurred at home and the other one happened versus fourth-tier Trier on the road. On its travels, Freiburg has conceded seven goals in three German Bundesliga starts and scored four goals of its own.
