Must Bet Bundesliga Matches From August 12th to 14th | Soccer Betting

Borussia Dortmund +124 vs SC Freiburg +202

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

Dortmund won their first Bundesliga match post-Erling Haaland by beating Leverkusen 1-0. Marco Rues scored the goal. But we shouldn’t read too much into the effort.

The problem in this match is that Dortmund doesn’t seem much better than home squad Freiburg. Not only did Freiburg destroy Augsburg 4-0 in their first Bundesliga match, but the home team in this offers overlay odds. Freiburg gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Freiburg  

FC Augsburg +1.5 -114 vs Bayer Leverkusen -1.5 -110

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 7:30 am ET

For Bayer Leverkusen, things aren’t starting out well. The home favorite in this matchup dropped their second straight game on August 6 after falling to Dortmund. In their previous match, a German DFB Pokal contest, underdog Elversberg beat Leverkusen 4-3.

But although Leverkusen is in bad form, the home team should bounce back in this. Augsburg isn’t as good as Bayer. Lay the 1.5.

Soccer Pick: Bayer Leverkusen -1.5 

FC Cologne +1.5 -157 vs RB Leipzig -1.5 +123

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 7:30 am ET

Cologne had been on a 4-match losing streak but in their first Bundesliga contest, the road dog in this blew away Schalke 04. Cologne blasted their rivals 4-1.

Leipzig hasn’t won in 3 straight. Liverpool dusted RB 5-0 in a club friendly and Bayern dropped 5 goals onto Leipzig in a 3-5 loss at the German DFL-Supercup. But although Cologne can keep this close, it’s a matter of time before the home team gets it going. Laying the 1.5 makes sense. 

Soccer Pick: RB Leipzig -1.5

Eintracht Frankfurt +131 vs Hertha BSC +206

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 7:30 am ET

This is Frankfurt’s third match since August 5. On August 5, Bayern Munich beat Frankfurt in a 6-1 Eintracht debacle. Five different Bayern players scored goals in the Frankfurt loss.

Then in the Super Cup versus Champions League winner Real Madrid, Frankfurt didn’t play much better, losing by 2 scores. Frankfurt can grab a victory versus Hertha, though. The home underdog has lost 3 straight, including their first Bundesliga match of the season, a 1-3 contest against Union Berlin. 

Soccer Pick: Eintracht Frankfurt  

Borussia Monchengladbach +124 vs Schalke 04 +200

  • When: Saturday, August 13 at 10:30 am ET

This happens on Schalke’s pitch, which is why the odds don’t favor Gladbach by more than +124. By kick-off, Monchen could be a close to even money chalk.

The road favorite has played great in a couple of matches, a 9-1 DFB Pokal contest against Oberachem and a 3-1 win over Hoffenheim on August 6. Gladbach rolls.  

Soccer Pick: Monchengladbach  

VFL Wolfsburg +2.5 -119 vs Bayern Munich -2.5 -106

  • When: Sunday, August 14 at 9:30 am ET

Even though Robert Lewandowski now plays for Barcelona, Bayern hasn’t missed a beat. In their last couple of matches, Bayern has dominated RB Leipzig and Frankfurt a combined 9 goals to 4.

Wolfsburg is a solid club. The road team drew 2-2 versus Werder Bremen in their last. But Bayern is on a mission. Sadio Mane, Jamal Musiala, Sergio Gnabry, Benjamin Pavard, and Joshua Kimmich will ensure Bayern covers this handicap.  

Soccer Pick: Bayern Munich -2.5
