I don’t give my heart, blood, sweat, and tears giving out Bundesliga picks because I like Germany, or even soccer for that matter. It’s because these German soccer players and clubs are risking life, and limb, to play the beautiful game. They’ll even do it mid-week after giving us games on the weekend too. It’s incredible, and they’ve given us the Game of the Year on a TUESDAY! That’s called stepping up.
Bayern Munich v. Dortmund
Der Klassiker baby. That’s German for this game is going to be bonkers. This would have been the biggest game of the season, regardless of the season being fan-less. Both teams are on-fire after the restart, so as Barney Bundesliga does, he picks draws. This one is at +315, that’s pretty juicy. Also taking the Over of 3.5 at -110. If you like sports, doesn’t have to be soccer, you’ll watch this game. What else are you gonna do at 12:30 on a Tuesday?
Bayer Leverkusen v. Wolfsburg
Leverkusen is growing on me. They put the ball in the net, and Wolfsburg doesn’t. I’m putting down 2 units on Leverkusen ML at -130.
Bremen v. ‘Gladbach
I’m taking ‘Gladbach on the money line at -120. Bremen caught a break last week, but their luck will run out against ‘Gladbach.
Frankfurt v. SC Freiburg
I’m being a coward and avoiding this one. Give me a break…
Fine, I’ll take Frankfurt ML at EVEN value.
RB Leipzig v. Hertha Berlin
Leipzig is HOT, HOT, HOT. Hertha Berlin however, is also extremely hot. Leipzig ML wasn’t that great, so I may wait and take them with a live bet. I’ve done that with Leipzig every week, so I can’t stop the trend now.
Union Berlin v. Mainz
Mainz got blown out by Leipzig last week, and Union Berlin didn’t fare that much better last week either. Both sides will look to bounce back, and both will get rewarded. In classic Barney Bundesliga fashion, I’m taking the draw at +240.
FC Augsburg v. Paderborn
Augsburg not only slaughtered Schalke on, and off the field last week, but now they get a bounce back game against the worst team in the league. Give me the House Plants at -105.
Hoffenheim v. FC Köln
I picked my Bill Goats to win last week in the Rhine Derby against Düsseldorf, and they came back extremely late to gain a draw. Even though they lost me money, they showed me they had fight, and that’s what matters. I’m taking my Billy Goats at +185 ML to get their first win after the restarted season.
Schalke v. Düsseldorf
Schalke is in total shambles, and Düsseldorf blew a 2 goal lead last week in the final 10 minutes to concede a draw to FC Köln. I think both teams get a little love this week, and end up in a draw. I’m taking a tie at +235.
The Bundesliga giving us Tuesday/Wednesday games is such a blessing to the mundane schedule of the week. Kings stay kings, and the Bundesliga is sitting comfortably on the sports throne, with Barney Bundesliga being the Lord of Locks.
