The Fade Board was the exact opposite of a fade board last week, ya boi was extra hot on the pitch. In total, I’m down $9, so I might as well be up $900 for all intents and purposes. We are getting into the meat and potatoes of the Bundesliga now. We know who’s legit (Bayern, Dortmund, etc), and we know who wishes the season never restarted so the world couldn’t see them stink it up (talking to you Schalke). Without further a-do, the Fade Board for June 12th-14th.
Leipzig v. Hoffenheim
RBL was stunned last week against Paderborn. Although they didn’t lose, RBL essentially did lose by going a man down in the 1st half, which led to them dropping 2 points by conceding the equalizer DEEP into stoppage time. Good teams bounce back after embarrassing results, and RBL is a very good team. I’m taking a RBL clean sheet at +190, and RBL -1.5 at -120.
FC Köln v. Union Berlin
This is the week my Billy Goats get a win. Union Berlin is a scrappy squad, I’ve said it once, and I’m sure I’ll be saying it all season long, but tenacity can only outlast talent for so long. I’m taking talent over tenacity in this one, give me the Billy Goats moneyline at +105, and a 1st half draw at +120.
Düsseldorf v. Dortmund
Dortmund is an absolute wagon, and you don’t bet against a wagon. I’m back on the shutout grind, so gimme the Black & Yellow clean sheet for 3 units at +140.
Hertha Berlin v. Frankfurt
Frankfurt looked good in their lost the other day to Bayern in the Pokal (German Cup), but with heavy legs, I’m not sure they pull out a win. Give me the draw at +260.
Paderborn v. Werder Bremen
Battle of the Bottom-Dwellers in this match. Paderborn have been the ultimate fade machine, well besides last weeks crazy tie against a 10-man RBL squad. But on the other side of the coin lies another depressing side in Bremen. Back on my BS, give me a patented Barney Bundesliga draw between these bottom-dwellers at +260.
Wolfsburg v. Freiburg
Freiburg were blessed last week after catching an early lead, which was immediately followed by ‘Gladbach going down to 10 men. The southwest club has been in every game until the end since the restarted season, but that’s not enough to give them the win here. Give me the under of 2.5 goals at EVEN money, and give me Wolfsburg moneyline at -140.
Bayern Munich v. ‘Gladbach
Do I even have to give out picks on Bayern anymore? Or do we all realize they are a lock week after week? ‘Gladbach is a top team in the league too, but they can’t hold Bayern’s jockstrap. Give me the Bavarian Giants to have a clean sheet at +175, and the over of 3.5 goals at -125.
Mainz v. FC Augsburg
Mainz shocked everyone last week with an impressive win over Frankfurt, while the House Plants of Augsburg drew against my Billy Goats. These two sides are separated by a mere 1 point in the standings, so I think a classic Barney Bundesliga draw is only fitting for this match at +240.
Schalke v. Bayer Leverkusen
Is this even a question? I know Schalke got me the draw last week, but this club still can’t be trusted. Give me Leverkusen money line for 1 unit at -180.
This is the last weekend of the Bundesliga being the kings of soccer, but that doesn’t mean we are done with it. Stay tuned for more Bundesliga Fade Boards, kick it easy this weekend mates.
