Saturday Betting Guide: Our writers' 6 best football tips
Ahead of the Bundesliga restart, we've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win-draw-win, BTTS and anytime goalscorers, into one bite-size preview.
Dortmund to beat Schalke to nil (14:30)
Dortmund come into the Revierderby having won five games on the spin in all competitions prior to the Bundesliga’s suspension.
Lucien Favre’s side are unbeaten in their 18 home games this season, winning 14 and drawing four.
Schalke, meanwhile, were in wretched form, failing to win any of their last six away games or even score in their last four.
Eintracht Frankfurt to beat Borussia Monchengladbach (17:30)
Frankfurt have won three and drawn one of their four home matches against sides currently in the top four.
That sequence includes a 5-1 thumping of Bayern Munich in November and back-to-back victories over RB Leipzig in league and cup in February.
Given fourth-placed Gladbach’s lousy away record in all competitions – they’ve won four of their last 13 matches on the road – this looks a decent price.
RB Leipzig v Freiburg (14:30)
This is a big price for a side whose home games feature plenty of goals.
BTTS has landed in 16 of their 25 league games so far – the third-highest ratio in the Bundesliga – including six of their last seven at Red Bull Arena.
Freiburg beat Leipzig 2-1 in the reverse fixture in October and have found the net in four of their five games against the current top four.
Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia Monchengladbach (17:30)
No side in the Bundesliga has had more BTTS games than Gladbach this season, with both teams bagging in 17 of their 25 league games.
There were goals at both ends in each of their last seven matches, so they shouldn’t disappoint here.
Frankfurt have only failed to score once in 13 matches in all competitions at the Commerzbank Arena, so they should do their bit too.
ANY OTHER BUSINESS
Rouwen Hennings (Fortuna Dusseldorf) to score v Paderborn (14:30)
Hennings seemed to have blown out before the Bundesliga was put on pause, but it is worth backing him to hit top form again now that he has rested for a couple of months.
The 32-year-old has scored 15 goals this season, ranks 12th for xG and will be on penalty duty for the hosts.
Considering that last-place Paderborn have the second-worst defensive record in the division, this looks a decent bet.
Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund) to assist 1+ goal v Schalke (14:30)
Sancho is level with Thomas Muller at the top of the Bundesliga assists chart after registering 10 in his last 14 Bundesliga appearances.
He is third for xA and fifth for key passes, and has clinical finisher Erling Haaland ready to dispatch any chances he creates.
Considering that record, this price seems generous.
