Another huge weekend ahead in the German Bundesliga – we take a look at the best of the action from a trading angle.
One thing to remember is that this is a trading website and if you can trade out for a decent profit at any time then that is what we advise. If we get two early goals and we have done Over 2.5 goals and we can take a nice profit then that is an angle.

Hoffenheim v Mainz
Two sides who have struggled recently but at least Hoffenheim have been scoring goals, at least one in each home game this season whilst the visitors Mainz have conceded in all away games and not won in ten on the road. The last five head to head have gone Over 3.5 goals so hopefully we can expect goals. Hoffenheim have won the last three head to head at home and really should win this but the risk is they haven’t won in five even though they have played three of the top five. Safest option is probably to go with goals.
Leverkusen v Hertha Berlin
Leverkusen have lost just one of their last eight but struggled and failed to break down Freiburg last weekend. Freiburg are in decent form though and the hosts should find this easier although Hertha have drawn their last three and the short odds on Leverkusen do not appeal as a trading option. Games between these two usually produce goals with seven of the last eight meetings ending Over 2.5 goals and goals looks a safer option than betting the home side.
Hannover v Freiburg
Freiburg are in great form, unbeaten in nine and take on a Hannover side whose home form has kept them safe in mid-table. Once again the head to head stats are strong with seven of the last ten meetings being Over 2.5 goals and nine of the last ten seeing both teams scoring, which looks the most obvious option here.
Bayern Munich v Schalke
A lot of people just trade against the short priced favourites each week but there has to be some method and reasoning for doing so. Bayern are very short here but they have won their last eight (last ten at home) and they have scored in all home games. They sit top of the league and will be bankers for many. Schalke are a decent outfit and have score in their last seven away games and their last fifteen games overall. They have also managed two 1-1 draws on their last three visits to Munich. Is that enough reason to Lay the home side? I’m not sure mainly because Bayern led in both those games and as traders we want as much in our favour as possible. I do think Schalke will score so trading correct scores is an option around 2-1 and 3-1.

Werder Bremen v Wolfsburg
Both these two are sort of battling against relegation and in recent weeks it has become clear that a point is not the worst result for either. Clearly the emphasis is on Bremen as the home side to go for it but they have drawn their last three on their own patch and Wolfsburg will not be easy to breakdown. They have lost just two of their last eight and won last time on the road away at Hannover. They might be worth chancing at 3.50 (5/2). For those who are looking for an alternative, seven of the last eight head to head have seen both teams score.
