Dortmund v Freiburg
The recent head to head in Dortmund ended 2-2, 3-1, 3-1, 5-0 and 5-1 so it is not the place you want to go when Dortmund sit unbeaten at the top of the table, even though you have only lost two in the last ten matches. We know how strong Dortmund are and they have a real chance of winning the title this season, but Freiburg have made themselves tough to beat, drawing four and winning one of their last six. Overall head to head saw seven of last ten head to head Over 2.5 goals, and in the last fourteen meetings there were twelve Dortmund wins and two draws, both last season. Freiburg have it to do and if Dortmund score early, it could be a long afternoon. Dortmund -1 on the normal handicap at 1.83 looks a fair play.
Stuttgart v Augsburg
The five recent he[ST1] ad to head in Stuttgart ended 0-0, 0-4, 0-1, 1-4 and 2-1 so Augsburg have a good track record here and on early season form, they would be a strong bet to take this. However, in recent weeks they have lost twice, and Stuttgart managed a win following four successive defeats. The overall head to head sees four of the last six Unders, and in the last eight meetings, there was one draw, one Stuttgart win and six Augsburg wins. Augsburg will be popular at 2.70 but after two defeats, that seems a little short. I like the Lay the draw option here and trade out at a goal.
Bremen v Bayern Munich
Recent head to head in Bremen is far from encouraging for the home side and it seems the Munich players like the Northern air. The last seven ended 0-2, 1-2, 0-1, 0-4, 0-7, 0-2 and 1-2. Overall Bayern have won last fifteen league meetings and it would be difficult to see any different result here. Bayern -1 on the normal handicap at 1.90 could pay dividends here.
Hoffenheim v Schalke
Two of my favourite teams at present, and Schalke may finally be about to come good. Hoffenheim are unbeaten in five, with four of those five games going Over 3.5 goals and they scored sixteen goals. Schalke have lost just twice in seven games and their last three games went Over 2.5 goals. The recent head to head in Hoffenheim ended 2-0, 2-1, 1-4, 2-1 and 3-3 and if there are not goals in this game, I would be extremely surprised. Overall in six of the last eight meetings, both teams scored which is available at 1.50 but we can get 1.80 about both teams scoring and Over 2.5 goals combined and that appeals more.

RB Leipzig v Borussia Moenchengladbach
Not a lot to go on in the head to head, but in Leipzig the two games ended 2-2 and 1-1 and in the only four head to head, Leipzig won both games away. Both are in sparkling form, Leipzig losing once in eleven and Gladbach once in eight. Home advantage may be the deciding factor here and I prefer Leipzig to win at 1.91.
Frankfurt v Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg have a decent record in Frankfurt with recent head to head there ending 0-1, 0-2, 3-2, 1-1, 1-2 and 2-2. On the overall head to head, the last ten saw six go Over 2.5 goals and seven saw both teams score with Wolfsburg winning six and drawing two. Wolfsburg beat Leipzig last week and will be popular to win at 3.80 just on their recent record in Frankfurt, but the home side are a solid unit and have won six and drawn one of their last seven. Safest option here has to be both teams to score at 1.66 but I could not put anyone off betting Frankfurt at 2.00.
