|The visitors’ winning return to league action (May 16) was their fourth Bundesliga away match without defeat (W3, D1). Three of those four matches saw Wolfsburg win the second half by a 2-1 scoreline, while each of the three victories saw their decisive goal arrive in the 60th minute or later.
Eric’s Bundesliga picks for Tuesday
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich
With just 7 match weeks remaining in this campaign will Bayern flex their dominance reigning over the Bundesliga for 8 straight campaigns or will Dortmund persevere and close the gap to within 1 point? Whatever the outcome is this should be one for the ages! Dortmund is off to a good restart to the season with wins over Schalke and Wolfsburg. Norwegian Erling Haland one to watch for Dortmund seems unstoppable at the moment. Bayern coming off wins vs Eintracht and Union. Dortmund the league’s best home record vs Bayern with the best road record. What does that tell you? Giving the attacking nature of both sides it will be a lively one to watch. We suggest the bet to take is that both teams will score and I also think to play the draw Tuesday.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs SC Freiburg
Home side Frankfurt has been struggling in their return to play. With that said losses have come against Gladbach and Bayern. Two tough matches where plenty of goals were scored. Frankfurt netted 2 against the champions Bayern. That’s got to count for something. Freiburg- can they recover from a stunning loss vs Werder Bremen? With key players sidelined for Bremen the home team, Frankfurt wants this more than Freiburg. This match will not be scoreless with both teams scoring. Frankfurt with the win at home.
Bayer Leverkusen vs VFL Wolfsburg
Leverkusen aiming to extend their winning run to 4 hoping to secure a top 4 champions league spot. For that they’ll have to be on top of their game with a tough remaining schedule. They have been producing some excellent football. Once again the man to keep an eye on is Kai Havertz. Wolfsburg however is low on confidence following 2-0 loss to Dortmund. Leverkusen unbeaten in 7 Bundesliga matches they’ve managed to keep their opponents off the scoreboard in 4 of those second halves. I’m taking Leverkusen with the win.
Bayern Munich (-125) vs Borussia Dortmund (+275) Total: 3.5 Goals
Bayern is the overwhelming favorite in this match but they will be playing without key starter Thiago Alcantara. Alcantara missed last weekend’s victory over Frankfort and will be missed in this matchup. The loss is huge for Bayern but maybe not as big as it could be as his replacement, Leon Goretzka. Played admirably in his place. Bayern may miss Serge Gnabry, who played just 26 second-half minutes in the last match for the Bundesliga table leaders.
Dortmund is currently four points behind Bayern in the standings and they have lost six of their last ten matches to Munich. Dortmund hasn’t won an away match since it defeated Koln five matches ago but has won seven of its previous eight matches and might be without central defender Dan-Axel Zagadou, left-back Nico Schulz and central midfielder Axel Witsel are injured. Mats Hummels was replaced by Emre Can in Wolfsburg and is doubtful.
Cash with Flash expects a terrific football match between two of the league’s leaderboards but we like the value with the home side Bayern. Any price under -150 for Bayern is a steal and we suggest playing Bayern Munich to win this game. We also like the UNDER 3.5 goals in this matchup.
SC Freiburg (-152) vs Eintracht Frankfurt (+370) Total Three Goals
Frankfort is in serious danger of relegation and has scored just four goals since their last Bundesliga victory all the way back in February. They’ve also conceded 18 goals since their February 7, 2020 win over Augsburg. That doesn’t bode well for the home side in this fixture.
Freiburg is looking to end a two-game Bundesliga losing streak with a win, a draw and a loss over their last five matches. Freiburg has a chance for European play next season but they need to end this losing streak and they have the perfect foil in the underwhelming home side Frankfurt.
Cash with Flash suggests eating the juice and playing the favorite Freiburg. They are the better side and have much to play for and a much-needed victory will keep them in the hunt for Euro competition.
Wolfsburg (+330) vs Bayer Leverkusen (-135) Total Three Goals
Leverkusen is looking to remain in the top four and they shouldn’t have any problems on Tuesday. Leverkusen is coming off a 3-1 win over Monchengladbach and has won four matches and a draw over its previous five Bundesliga matches. Defenseman Lars Bender is listed as out for this matchup.
Wolfsburg is sixth in the table and still has an opportunity to qualify for some type of Euro play next season but they have work to do for that to happen. Wolfsburg is coming off a 2-0 loss to Dortmund and has two wins, a loss and a pair of draws over its last five contests. Right-back William left-back Paulo Otavio and defensive midfielder Ignacio Camacho could be out for the rest of the season. Midfielders Yannick Gerhardt has a facial fracture and Josuha Guilavogui is struggling with a knee injury.
Cash with Flash suggests playing the home side Leverkusen to win this match. They have won eight straight at home and getting them at a price under -150 seems like a dream come true. We also suggest playing OVER three goals as Leverkusen has scored at least three goals and has won by at least two goals in each of its last five contests.
