The race for the Bundesliga title is tight at the top of the standings, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Wolfsburg are separated by only seven points. This weekend, round 24, provides the bettor an opportunity to create an All-American parlay as the three games that are highlighted will feature players that play on the USMNT.
Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund is the biggest match of the German Bundesliga, it is a tale of two teams on different pages. Bayern are coming off of winning the Club World Cup, while Dortmund has been inconsistent this season, they have won their last two games. SC Freiburg vs. RB Leipzig present the opportunity for RB Leipzig to climb the standings in case Bayern loses against Dortmund. While at the bottom of the standings FC Koln vs Werder Bremen is a game where both teams will look to win to avoid relegation positions.
Each game also has the extra added bonus that it features at least one USMNT player, at Dortmund there is Gio Reyna, at Leipzig Tyler Adams, and Josh Sargent will most likely be up front for Werder Bremen. Let’s review what the oddsmakers at FanDuel have for these three key matches in the Bundesliga!
Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund
Bayern is the odds-on favorite at -155 while Dortmund will be paying out +380. The current champions are coming off of a win last week and already battered Dortmund this season. Erling Haaland could be an interesting pick as the player to score the first goal of the match, Haaland is having a sensational season and a goal by the Norwegian pays out +400. While a goal by USMNT midfielder Gio Reyna pays out +1200, Reyna’s form has dipped a bit this season, but he did have a solid game last week. This game looks like Bayern’s to lose but betting that the game will be high scoring and could be over 3.5 goals could be a risky but interesting bet at +100.
SC Freiburg vs. RB Leipzig
This is a must win game for RB Leipzig if they want to have any chance at catching up to Bayern. While a Leipzig win is only paying -155, this game is not as simple as it looks. Leipzig don’t have a margin for error and SC Freiburg are eighth in the table and won’t be a pushover. A tie between the two could be an interesting option as it pays +310. A goal by Tyler Adams at any point of the game is paying out +430. Look for a tight affair in this one, as under 1.5 goals is paying out +370.
FC Koln vs Werder Bremen
Games at the bottom of the standings are always good betting options since teams need to score, as they try to win to avoid the danger zone of relegation at season’s end. Koln are losers of three straight while Werder Bremen have improved this season but have been equally as inconsistent having won 1 and lost 1. Bremen looks like the safe pick in this one given both team’s form, at +160 they are a safe option. USMNT forward Josh Sargent is paying out +250 if he scores in this one at any point of the game. Under 2.5 goals looks reasonable for the over/under at -160.
An interesting parlay mix for this one would be a Bayern win, a SC Freiburg - RB Leipzig draw, and a Bremen win which if you bet $100 would have a payout of $1,654. Don’t miss any of the action and previews of the German Bundesliga right here at Bolavip!
