Soccer is finally back. Several countries have domestic league games opening tomorrow, but none are bigger than the German Bundesliga. The Germans are not only innovators in cars (Mercedes > BMW), but also in getting soccer back to the people. Barney Bundesliga is betting the whole board, and I want all the schnitzel and kraut!
Most of you probably only know the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund (American Christian Pulisic’s old squad), but the league is pretty deep. Arguably the 2nd or 3rd best league in the world behind the English Premier League. It’s right up there with La Liga of Spain and Serie A of Italy. But now it’s the best league cause it’s BACH, and Barney Bundesliga is here to give out schlössers, that’s German for locks.
Borussia Dortmund v. Schalke 04
Dortmund is the favorite at -140, but Schalke is a strong squad, and with this being the first game played in 2 months, crazy things could happen. I’m throwing 1 unit on a draw (+325), gotta think it’ll take both teams some time to get back into it, and a +325 draw line screams value.
Augsburg v. Wolfsburg
This is a crap shoot game. I’m gonna avoid choosing a ml, but hop on the over (2.5) at -110. Expect goals in this one.
Fortuna Düsseldorf v. Paderborn
Paderborn was the worst team in the league before Covid-19 hit, and that won’t change post Covid-19. Lucky for them, Düsseldorf is equally as bad. Take the value of a draw at +250.
RB Leipzig v. Freilburg
Leipzig is a top club in the league, and I’ll ride the top club this weekend. Going to try and catch a live bet with this one once the lines turn in favor of Leipzig. Check my Twitter for updates closer to the 9::30 kick off.
Hoffenheim v. Hertha Berlin
I’m following trends on this one. I want to throw on a draw, but I can’t get sucked into getting draw crazy. No one likes a tie. I’m taking the favorite Hoffenheim at +120.
Frankfurt v. Borussia Monchengladbach
‘Gladbach, besides having the best name in the league, is a lock against a bottom half Frankfurt squad. Hammer ‘Gladbach ml (+135).
FC Köln (Cologne) v. Mainz
Mainz stinks, Cologne has a cool name and logo. Hammer the Billy Goats ml (-110)
Union Berlin v. Bayern Munich
Anyone who has ever played FIFA knows that Bayern Munich is a wagon. I’m throwing a unit on the alternative goal line of Bayern -2.5 (+150)
Werder Bremen v. Bayer Leverkusen
Bremen stinks, give me Leverkusen money line at -140.
Bet big, win big, that’s the German way. Barney Bundesliga, your man for stuffing your wallet with euros.
