German Bundesliga: Gameweek 9 Preview

Three Bundesliga teams remain undefeated heading into gamewek nine, Bayer Leverkusen who top the table with a two-point margin alongside Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, while Stuttgart’s six straight wins help them occupy second. A few value bets are on offer, so let’s get stuck in.


Check out all gameweek 9 predications including a 37/10 treble.


Friday 27 October


27/20 Bochum | Draw 5/2 | Mainz 39/20 (20:30)


Kicking off the weekend we head into the doldrums of the Bundesliga table to witness 17th Bochum versus 18th Mainz separated by two points. Neither side have found victory this campaign, and both hold a -15-goal difference. The home draws no bet offers 13/20.


Saturday 28 October


21/20 Augsburg | Draw 26/10 | Wolfsburg 5/4 (15:30)


‘Battle of the burgs’ is set mid table between ninth Wolfsburg and 10th Augsburg. Although Augsburg have a home advantage, I’m leaning towards Die Wolfe considering their last three losses were against Dortmund, Stuttgart, and Leverkusen. Get behind the Wolfsburg.


1/12 Bayern Munich | Draw 11/1 | Darmstadt 23/1 (15:30)


Often the banker of the weekend goes to Bayern, and the tougher part for punters is finding value on these juggernauts. Bayern have yet to lose across all competitions. This fixture has never gone in favour of Darmstadt, back the defending champions to win and both teams to score (no) at 17/20.


9/10 Monchengladbach | Draw 3/1 | Heidenheimer 28/10 (15:30)


Despite their table position, Monchengladbach has scored many goals, and Heidenheimer’s poor defensive record might just be the matchup they need. Put the homeside in your multiples to beef up those odds.


7/4 Werder Bremen | Draw 24/10 | Union Berlin 31/20 (15:30)


Union Berlin look nothing like their former selves recording eight straight losses across all comps, and with the champions league stealing their energy reserves, I don’t see much changing soon. Similarly, the home side does not inspire confidence. The draw for these bottom half sides is on the cards.


17/20 Stuttgart | Draw 24/10 | Hoffenheim 28/10 (15:30)


Six wins on the trot, and undefeated at home conceding two and scoring 16, Stuttgart are the bet of the weekend against Hoffenheim. 17/20 is multiple value on the homeside.


4/10 Leipzig | Draw 42/10 | Cologne 6/1 (18:30)


Leipzig are slightly off the pace but a matchup against a struggling Cologne is just what they need to continue the momentum they’ve built up. Seven wins without a loss in the league should turn to eight for the homseide.


Sunday 29 October


21/10 Eintracht Frankfurt | Draw 26/10 | Dortmund 12/10 (16:30)


Eintracht Frankfurt have made themselves the hardest team to break down this season, conceding the least number of goals this season (six), and Dortmund struggles against compact teams, needing to play an expansive game. But back the Dortmund Win/Draw double chance and both teams to score (yes) at 1/1.


7/20 Leverkusen | Draw 44/10 | Freiburg 7/1 (18:30)


Leverkusen are flying high, and it is without question a great team effort by Xabi Alonso’s men, but we cannot ignore Serhou Guirasy’s 14 goals. The saying’ the ball is round’ rings true in every lopsided football match, but this home win is as certain as they come.


TREBLE @ 37/10


Stuttgart Win 17/20

M’Gladbach Win 9/10

Leverkusen Win 7/20
