Friday 6 December

Eintracht Frankfurt 17/20 
Draw 11/4 
Hertha Berlin 29/10 
(21:30)

We kick things off at the Commerzbank Arena on Friday night as Eintracht Frankfurt host Hertha Berlin. Adi Hutter's side, who are 10th in the table, are going through a rough patch with three consecutive defeats and they’ll be desperate to stop the rot. Hertha sit 16th in the Bundesliga after 13 fixtures, having lost their last five matches, with a 2-1 home defeat against Borussia Dortmund marking their latest setback. Jurgen Klinsmann will be searching for his first win in charge of the Old Lady, but I fancy the Eagles to get back to winning ways.

Saturday 7 December

Monchengladbach 9/2 
Draw 37/10 
Bayern Munich 5/10 
(16:30)

Table-toppers Monchengladbach will be looking to extend their lead over Bayern Munich on Saturday when they welcome the champions to Borussia-Park. The Foals have won their last five Bundesliga games there and will fancy their chances of beating the Bavarians, who were beaten 2-1 by Leverkusen in their own backyard. Bayern have struggled on the road this season. Prior to their 4-0 win at Dusseldorf, they were hammered 5-1 at Eintracht Frankfurt before failing to win at Augsburg, earning a 2-2 draw. Back the hosts on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 29/20.

Dortmund 3/10 
Draw 9/2 
Dusseldorf 7/1 
(16:30) 

Borussia Dortmund are not where they should be in the Bundesliga, sitting in the unfamiliar depths of fifth place. Last season’s runners-up have struggled to find the rhythm this campaign and should they beat 14th-placed Dusseldorf this weekend, Lucien Favre's team will claim back-to-back victories for only the second time in the Bundesliga this season. Dortmund need to get their act together, but you can back them with confidence to win here. 

Freiburg 17/10 
Draw 23/10 
Wolfsburg 16/10 
(16:30)

Freiburg will be looking to make it three consecutive home wins in the Bundesliga when they host Wolfsburg. Both of those victories at the Schwarzwald-Stadion came against RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt, which Christian Streich will be proud of. Wolfsburg are struggling at the moment with three defeats from their last four league games. Back Freiburg to secure all three points here.

Augsburg 13/10 
Draw 5/2 
Mainz 39/20 
(16:30)

Augsburg host Mainz at the WWK Arena with both sides desperate to distance themselves from the relegation zone. Martin Schmidt's side will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s result when they beat the Carnival club 3-0 on their turf thanks to a hat-trick from Alfred Finnbogason. In their last home fixture, Augsburg annihilated Hertha Berlin 4-0. Mainz have lost five of their seven matches away from home, scoring nine and shipping 22 goals – no team has conceded more on the road this season. The home win is the way to go. 

RB Leipzig 9/20 
Draw 15/4 
Hoffenheim 52/10 
(16:30)

RB Leipzig will be looking to continue their fine form when they host Hoffenheim. Julian Nagelsmann’s free-scoring side are targeting a fifth straight Bundesliga victory, but it won’t be as easy as their last two games at the Red Bull Arena where they beat Mainz and Cologne, 8-0 and 4-0 respectively. Hoffenheim have been a better team away from home this season. They’re unbeaten in their last five on the road, with three wins in a row away to Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin and Cologne. These sides played to a 1-1 draw in this fixture last season and I can see this ending in another stalemate. 

Leverkusen 9/10 
Draw 26/10 
Schalke 29/10 
(19:30)

Leverkusen welcome Schalke to the BayArena in one of the eye-catching fixtures of the weekend. Both teams have impressed this season and come into this game in identical form, separated by just three points in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen will be aiming to improve on their seventh position, while Schalke will want to remain in the top three. The hosts will be high on confidence after beating Bayern Munich 2-1 at the Allianz Arena last weekend, but the visitors will fancy their chances just as much. The safest bet here seems to be Both Teams to Score (Yes) at 13/20.

Sunday 8 December

Union Berlin 13/10 
Draw 24/10 
Cologne 2/1 
(16:30)

After three impressive league wins on the bounce, Union Berlin’s run came to an end at Schalke, where they suffered a 2-1 defeat. The fixture list has handed them a favourable tie to return to winning ways when they welcome Cologne to town, with the visitors languishing in 17th place with just one point from their last five encounters. Back the hosts to get their season back on track with a well-priced win at 13/10.

Werder Bremen 11/20 
Draw 7/2 
Paderborn 17/4 
(19:00)

Werder Bremen’s eight-game winless run in the Bundesliga came to a joyful end last Sunday as they beat Wolfsburg 3-2 away from home. Florian Kohfeldt will fancy his side’s chances yet again as they welcome Paderborn to the Weser Stadium. The visitors lie rock bottom in the standings, failing to emerge victorious on the road this season. Werder haven’t had the best of results this season, but they’ve certainly not been goal shy, scoring 22 goals this term – more than any other side in the bottom half of the division. Get on the home win here at all costs.

TREBLE @ 47/10
Dortmund Win 3/10
Freiburg Win 17/10
Leverkusen vs Schalke BTTS (Yes) 13/20
