Tuesday 16 June

Monchengladbach 12/10
Draw 51/20
Wolfsburg 2/1

Borussia Monchengladbach played well, despite losing 2-1 at Bayern Munich on Saturday and with the return of their top goalscorer Alassane Plea, they have a great chance here. Wolfsburg threw away a 2-0 lead when drawing 2-2 at home with Freiburg, but away from home, they have won five and drawn one of their last six league appearances, winning the last three. I fancy Borussia Monchengladbach to win at 21/20 but with Wolfsburg in such great form away from home, Over 1.5 Home Goals at 15/20 looks the right play. The value bet at 17/10 is Both Teams to Score in the 2nd Half.

Werder Bremen 11/1
Draw 6/1
Bayern Munich 1/5

Bayern have won 15 and drawn 1 of their last 16 league matches and with the return of strikers Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller, this should be a cakewalk. Werder Bremen beat bottom-placed Paderborn 5-1 away on Saturday to keep their survival hopes alive, but they have lost nine of their last 10 home league outings. Bayern are short on most markets, so Bayern to Score Over 1.5 Goals in the 2nd Half at 9/10 looks the way to go. Robert Lewandowski to be the First Goalscorer at 39/20 is worth an interest as he’s too short at 1/3 to Score Anytime. My Value Bet is Both Teams to Score (No) and Over 2.5 Goals at 22/10.

Freiburg 16/10
Draw 5/2
Hertha Berlin 31/20

Freiburg drew 2-2 at Wolfsburg on Saturday but have only won 1 of their last six league fixtures, while at home, they have won three and lost three of their last six. Hertha, who had a player sent off at half-time when leading 1-0, lost 4-1 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, while their last eight away league games has seen four wins, three draws and one defeat. Hertha Berlin are the better side but without their main defender, taking 15/10 is a tough call. I am going Hertha to Score + 1.5 Goals at 23/20. The value play is Veham Ibisevic , their Bosnian striker to Score Anytime at 19/10.

Union Berlin 13/20
Draw 3/1
Paderborn 38/10

Union Berlin were impressive when beating Cologne 2-1 away on Saturday, conceding only in the 92nd minute and need only a draw to maintain their Bundesliga status. Paderborn, who need a miracle to survive relegation, have drawn five and lost seven of their last 12 league encounters and will no doubt go for it. Union Berlin to Win at 13/20 is little value, so Over 1.5 Goals in the 2nd half at 17/20 is my play. I fancy Over 3.5 Goals at 16/10 as Paderborn will no doubt not lie down. Both Teams to Score in the 2nd Half at 43/20 will have my money and at 27/10, Over 2.5 Goals in the 2nd Half is worth looking at.

Wednesday 17 June

Eintracht Frankfurt 7/10
Draw 3/1
Schalke 34/10

Eintracht were fortunate to beat Hertha Berlin 4-1 away on Saturday, courtesy of a red card on half-time, but their finishing was clinical. Schalke were the better team when drawing 1-1 at home with Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday but it’s now 13 league fixtures in a row without a victory. Eintracht Frankfurt to win at 15/20 is the right call but the odds are skinny and so is Eintracht to Score Over 1.5 Goals at 7/10. I fancy Eintracht to win on the (-1) Handicap at 7/4, while both Andre Silva and Bas Dost to Score Anytime at 31/20 will also have my money.

Borussia Dortmund 1/4
Draw 5/1
Mainz 17/2

Dortmund have won nine and lost to Bayern Munich in their last 10 league encounters, keeping clean sheets in seven of them. Mainz missed several good chances when losing 1-0 at home to Augsburg but they have scored in seven of their last eight away from home. Will Mainz score? I don’t think they will, so Borussia Dortmund to keep another clean sheet at 23/20 is my play. Dortmund were poor until striker Erling Haaland came on in the 2nd Half, so Haaland to be the First Goalscorer at 5/2 is my value bet, while he’s 5/10 to Score Anytime.

Bayer Leverkusen 9/20
Draw 15/4
Cologne 52/10

Bayer Leverkusen were poor and fortunate to draw 1-1 at Schalke on Sunday but facing their local rivals here, you can guarantee an improved performance. Cologne were outplayed when losing 2-1 at home to Union Berlin on Saturday, which makes it seven league games without a win. Bayer Leverkusen should win but 5/10 is short and so is Bayer to Win by More than 1 Goal at 11/10. Bayer to Score Over 2.5 Goals at 23/20 is my punt. I think this will be a physical battle, so I fancy a red card at 7/2.

Augsburg 17/10
Draw 26/10
Hoffenheim 29/20

Augsburg beat Mainz 1-0 away on Sunday and while their home form is dodgy, they have only lost one of their last five league appearances. Hoffenheim, who still have E/L dreams were beaten 2-0 at Home by RB Leipzig on Friday but how they never scored, I don’t know. I fancy Hoffenheim to win at 14/10 but this should be a close contest, so I’m going Hoffenheim to Score Over 1.5 Goals at even money. Both Teams to Score in the 2nd Half at 33/20 is my value bet.

RB Leipzig 2/9
Draw 52/10
Fortuna Düsseldorf 19/2

RB Leipzig have won five and drawn seven of their last 12 league matches but strangely, they have drawn their last four at home. Fortuna played well before conceding in injury-time when losing 1-0 at home to Dortmund on Saturday, while they have lost only one of their last five away from home. RB Leipzig to Win by More than 1 Goal at 11/20 is way too short, even though they should win easily. RB Leipzig to keep a Clean Sheet at 11/10, is my play.  Chelsea bound Timo Werner looks good value at 23/10 to be the First Goalscorer, as he’s 9/20 to Score Anytime.
