Must Bet Bundesliga Matches From August 5th to 7th | Soccer Betting

Bayern Munich -1.5 +103 vs Eintracht Frankfurt +1.5 -131

  • When: Friday, August 5 at 12:30 pm ET

Robert Lewandowski bolted to Barcelona, but Bayern shouldn’t take a backward step. The best team in the Bundesliga added excellent Sadio Mane. 

In the 5-3 win over RB Leipzig at the German Super Cup, five different players scored for Bayern: Mane, Musiala, Pavard, Gnabry, and Sane.

Frankfurt has rolled to 5 straight wins. But Bayern is on another level. Munich covers.

Soccer Pick: Bayern Munich -1.5

SC Freiburg +118 vs FC Augsburg +225

  • When: Saturday, August 6 at 7:30 am ET

Both Augsburg and Freiburg start the season on 2-0 winning streaks. Augsburg, the home dog, ended last season beating Greuther Furth 2-1 and then bested Lohne 4-0 in their first German DFB Pokal match. 

In a club friendly on July 16, Freiburg beat Stade Rennais 1-0. Then in their first DFB Pokal contest, Freiburg dusted Kaiserslautern 2-1. Last season, Freiburg surprised with a great finish. The road team is the play. 

Soccer Pick: SC Freiburg  

TSG Hoffenheim +195 vs Borussia Monchengladbach +116

  • When: Saturday, August 6 at 7:30 am ET

Road underdog Hoffenheim ended last season losing 3 straight Bundesliga matches. In their first Pokal game, Hoffenheim beat Rodinghausen 2-0.

Gladbach shows 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5 matches. 4-of-5 were club friendlies. In the contest that counted, Monchengladbach rolled, blasting Oberachern 9-1 in their first German DFB Pokal game. Gladbach gets their Bundesliga season off the right way with a big win.  

Soccer Pick: Borussia Monchengladbach  

Werder Bremen +300 vs Vfl Wolfsburg -114

  • When: Saturday, August 6 at 7:30 am ET

Both teams are in decent enough form to warrant a look. Going back to April 30, Wolfsburg has won 3-of-5 with a couple of draws.

Werder Bremen has won 3-of-4 with a club friendly loss to Besiktas. Wolfsburg should have  a decent season. Werder Bremen will be okay, but not great. Wolfsburg wins. 

Soccer Pick: Wolfsburg  

Bayer Leverkusen +205 vs Borussia Dortmund +110

  • When: Saturday, August 6 at 10:30 am ET

Dortmund followed up a 3-0 victory over TSV 1860 Munich by drawing with Antalyaspor 1-1 in a club friendly on July 30. 

Leverkusen drew in their last club friendly in a 0-0 match against Panathinaikos. Then in their first DFB Pokal match, the road squad in this fell to SV 07 Elversberg 4-3. The match did not inspire confidence. However, Leverkusen offers overlay odds. Give the road dog a shot.   

Soccer Pick: Bayer Leverkusen  

RB Leipzig -126 vs Vfb Stuttgart +330

  • When: Sunday, August 7 at 7:30 am ET

Leipzig heads into their first German Bundesliga match having lost 2 straight. The road chalk in this isn’t playing well enough to warrant a bet.

Stuttgart not only offers overlay odds as the home dog, but has won 3 straight. The road team gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Vfb Stuttgart
