Hannover v Hamburg
Hannover sit in third place with the visitors in seventh, the home side having won two and a draw and Hamburg with two ins and a loss. All three Hannover games were Under 2.5 goals and two of the three Hamburg games. In the last nine head to head there has not been a draw and in the last seven meetings, six were Over 2.5 goals. In Hannover the games finished 0-3, 2-0, 2-1 and 5-1 suggesting the home side get the better. Perhaps Lay the Draw is the best option in this match.
Saturday 16th September
Bayern Munich v Mainz
Bayern strolled through the midweek Champions League game and look back to their best but Mainz have a better than average recent record in Munich, with a win and a draw on their last two visits. Eight of the last ten meetings were Over 2.5 goals and goals look the order of the day here, and with Mainz having scored on four of their last five visits to Munich, Both Teams to Score is a possible at 2.00 (Evs). Those who like risking longshots could Lay Munich at 1.16 and hope Mainz score first for a trade out, the downside is minimal.
Werder Bremen v Schalke
On this seasons form it has to be Schalke who look a solid side and have won twice, Bremen have yet to win. Six of the last eight meetings have been Over 2.5 goals and Schalke have won four of the last six meetings with one draw. In Bremen the scores have been 3-0, 0-3, 0-3, 1-1, 0-2 and 2-3. Two obvious options, Over 2.5 goals at around 1.73 (8/11) or back the away side at 2.63 13/8) with preference for the latter due to their current wellbeing.
Eintracht Frankfurt v Augsburg
This is probably not the game to look at Laying the Draw with five of the last ten meetings ending all square. The three Frankfurt games this season have produced just two goals and the Augsburg away game ended 1-0 so goals may be at a premium. Augsburg look the most attacking of the two but may settle for a point so either back the Draw at 3.50 (5/2) or try trading correct scores around 0-0 and 1-1 at 8.00 (7/1) and 7.00 (6/1) and then look to green out at some point.
Stuttgart v Wolfsburg
Looking at the stats here we should just keep it simple. There has not been a draw in the last ten head to head so Lay the Draw is the obvious play here. For those not sure on that strategy it means either Lay the draw and leave it or as some will do trade out after a goal or some wait until a side is two up, the choice has to be yours.
Sunday 17th September
Hoffenheim v Hertha Berlin
There has been no draw in the last six meetings but Hoffenheim have won five of the last six with four of the last six Over 2.5 goals. Hoffenheim are unbeaten and beat Bayern last week whilst Hertha have picked up four points from their three games. It has to be a home win at 1.73 (8/11).
Borussia Dortmund v Koln
Dortmund were not at their best last week when unable to break down Freiburg who were down to ten men for two thirds of the game. That being said, they are still top of the league and should regain the winning thread here as Koln have lost all three so far. One worrying stat that you need to be aware of if betting Dortmund, in the last six head to heads, Koln have won two and there were four draws. You have been warned!
