With 14 rounds of German Bundesliga football remaining, runaway table-toppers Bayern Munich lead the pack by a mammoth 16 points! The relegation zone on the other hand is wide open after Cologne’s resurgence and the basement-dwellers will be determined to complete the great escape following a dreadful start to the campaign.

Friday 2 February

Cologne 33/10
Draw 28/10
Dortmund 15/20

Cologne’s three-match winning streak came to an end last weekend after Augsburg held the relegation-candidates to a 1-1 draw at Mungersdorfer Stadion. Borussia Dortmund are unbeaten in their last five games and will be looking to maintain that form. While Cologne are finally starting to find their feet, the Black and Yellow Army are struggling to maintain winning form and will be desperate to get back to their best. Both Teams to Score – Yes – is tipped at 13/20.

Saturday 3 February

Mainz 8/1
Draw 47/10
Bayern Munich 3/10

Mainz have been dismal with just five wins from 20 matches and currently lie just three points off the drop zone. Bayern Munich have been in top form with 12 wins from their last 13 games, including seven wins on the spin. The Bavarians have won the last five meetings away to Mainz, scoring 13 goals and conceding only twice. Between two or three goals were scored in four of those five clashes and with that being said, I’m backing the Total Goals (Aggregated) – 2-3 – at 23/20.

Freiburg 3/1
Draw 28/10
Bayer Leverkusen 8/10

Freiburg are unbeaten in their last eight matches with four wins and four draws. Bayer Leverkusen have won back-to-back games and are undefeated in their last seven matches on the road with four victories. The hosts are coming off a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Dortmund and will be looking to build on that. An enticing matchup is on the cards and both teams are tipped to find the back of the net at 11/20.

Schalke 13/20
Draw 28/10
Werder Bremen 4/1

Schalke are coming off an impressive 2-0 win away to Stuttgart and return to their home ground where they have been tough to break down. The Royal Blues are unbeaten in their last seven matches on home soil and will be eager to build on that. Werder Bremen have been terrible with three wins from 20 games and have lost four of their last five travels, including two matches on the bounce. Get on the home win.

Hertha Berlin 33/20
Draw 47/20
Hoffenheim 33/20

Just one point separates Hertha Berlin and Hoffenheim on the standings and with neither side playing good football at present, we could be in for a bit of a dull contest. Five of the last seven meetings between these sides have seen Hoffenheim claim maximum points. Follow the trend and back the away team to edge the win.

Wolfsburg 5/4
Draw 9/4
Stuttgart 22/10

Wolfsburg ended a winless streak of five matches last time out after grinding out a 1-0 victory at Hannover. Stuttgart are without a win in their last 17 travels, including 13 losses, while they have scored just six goals on the road and conceded 19 times this season. The Wolves have won the last nine meetings at home against the Reds and will be hopeful of making it 10 on the trot. Back the home team to come out on top.

Monchengladbach 15/10
Draw 5/2
Leipzig 17/10

Borussia Monchengladbach are unbeaten in their last five matches at home, including back-to-back wins. Leipzig are without a win in their last five travels and will be desperate to turn that form around this weekend. A high-scoring match is expected with both sides looking to bag all three points. The Totals – Over 2.5 Goals – market should be taken at 6/10.

Sunday 4 February

Augsburg 5/4
Draw 22/10
Eintracht Frankfurt 23/10

Augsburg have been inconsistent this season but will be looking to capitalize on home advantage when they play host to Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday afternoon. The Eagles come into this encounter unbeaten in their last six travels with three consecutive victories. Looking at the form guide, Eintracht Frankfurt are too good not to back them. However, for safe measure get on the Frankfurt Win/Draw Double Chance at 6/10.

Hamburg 11/10
Draw 23/10
Hannover 5/2

Relegation-threatened Hamburg have managed just four wins from 20 matches, including 20 losses. Hannover have travelled poorly with only two wins from 10 games, including four losses from their last five matches on the road. I’m not expecting a goal fest, with both teams battling to score goals this term. The Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market should be backed at 15/20.

TREBLE @ 9/1
Schalke Win 13/20
Hoffenheim Win 33/20
Wolfsburg Win 5/4
