Bundesliga betting: matchday 30


Bayern Munich may have created a 7-point gap with its closest competitor Borussia Dortmund, but with still 5 games to go, the Bundesliga is far from over. Plenty of teams still hold good cards to improve their situations in the upcoming weekends. This makes Germany’s highest football division a real treat for sports bettors. Let’s take a look as some decisive matchups to see if we can pick up a few things so we can place smarter bets…

Bayer Leverkusen – Bayern Munich (Saturday, June 6, 3.30 p.m.)

Bayer Leverkusen is enjoying a commendable season so far. European football next season is within reach, and the German Cup can still end up in the city of Leverkusen too. However, with Bayern Munich on the other side of the pitch this weekend, “Die Werkself” have a tough job ahead of an easier Cup game next Tuesday against Saarbrücken.

If Leverkusen manages to win, it could hop over Borussia Mönchengladbach to a fourth place that could mean Champions League participation. Odds may seem to indicate a win for the Bavarian visitors, but with the way Leverkusen’s season is going, it’s tricky to believe against a stunt. Munich holds a comfortable lead. Could it save its efforts here for its upcoming Cup game against Eintracht Frankfurt?

Freiburg – Borussia Mönchengladbach (Friday, June 5, 8.30 p.m.)

Freiburg has had a solid run in this year’s Bundesliga. The reward for the Black Forest club, generally considered an also-ran, is an eighth place. With 15 points still to win across the upcoming matchdays, the Southern German outfit is well expected to push its own boundaries to prove their Bundesliga worth. Even the Europa League is still in the cards if its nearest opponents fail to do their jobs!

Borussia Mönchengladbach, meanwhile, is right about where it should be, in fourth place. However, the Borussians hold the same number of points as Bayer Leverkusen – 56. Only a better goal difference (+22 for Gladbach and +18 for Bayer) separates the two. This is Mönchengladbach’s game to win if it wants the hold on to its Champions League dream. On top of that, it could move to third place, too.

Can Borussia Mönchengladbach smash Freiburg’s hopes with the smallest difference @8.00?

Borussia Dortmund – Hertha Berlin (Saturday, June 6, 6.30 p.m.)

Borussia Dortmund has proven with bravery that it is Bayern Munich’s most worthy opponent, but despite all efforts, it finds itself 7 points behind the leader in the Bundesliga. At the same time, the black-and-yellow have no less than 3 opponents just waiting for it to make a mistake. Depending on everyone’s performance over the weekend, it could even lose its second place to RB Leipzig.

Luckily for Dortmund, it’s up against a team that it can keep under its thumb on a good day. Hertha Berlin is ninth in the ranking – equal in points with Freiburg’s 38, but with a slightly lower goal difference. If the outfit from Germany’s capital doesn’t lose and if Freiburg does, the two will switch places, with Hertha in the lead. There’s a lot in the balance, for more than both teams even…

Maybe Hertha Berlin can stun with a lucky draw @5.60?
