Okay MyBookie soccer betting faithful, with the German Bundesliga making its return to the pitch this coming weekend, it’s time to find out which team is offering the best value against their Bundesliga betting odds when Borussia Dortmund hosts FC Schalke 04 at Signal Iduna Park in a derby match of round 26.
Bundesliga Betting Odds – Borussia Dortmund vs FC Schalke 04
Why Bet On Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund is in second place in the Bundesliga standings with 51 points, just four points behind league-leading Bayern Munich. Dortmund has scored 68 goals and allowed 33. Borussia Dortmund had won four straight games and a blistering seven of eight prior to the coronavirus suspension while outscoring their opponents 27-9 during the span. Borussia Dortmund is led by blossoming young superstar Erling Haaland, who has recorded a stunning 9 goals in 8 games. Haaland, Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho have combined for 34 goals this year.
Why Bet On Schalke 04
FC Schalke didn’t record a single victory in their seven matches prior to the league suspension while recording four draws and three losses during the stretch. To make matters worse, Schalke has scored just two goals over the span while allowing 15. Schalke also suffered a pair of completely embarrassing 5-0 losses during the stretch and a 3-0 loss as well. Schalke has gone 4-4-4 SU, but an encouraging 6-4-2 ATS on the road. However, Schalke were 4-2 winners in this meeting a year ago and Dortmund will be without the crowd advantage in this meeting.
Dortmund has gone a stellar 9-3-0 SU and 7-4-1 ATS at home this season. They’ve scored an impressive 30 points at home while FC Schalke has scored just 16 points on the road. Schalke has been beaten, bruised and battered this season and I don’t think the break for the coronavirus pandemic is going to help them one iota. This one could be over by the time halftime rolls around as Borussia Dortmund cruises to the easy win.
