    Soccer Betting: Bayern Munich made most of the news around Bundesliga last weekend, after setting the league record for wins to open a campaign at nine as they have already opened up a seven point lead in the table. Bayern will be facing Koln this weekend at home looking to extend that record to 10 games played without a blemish.

    Our featured match of the weekend comes at Stadion im Borussia-Park in one of the twoSundaycontests, as Gladbach takes a four-match win streak into their home outing against third place Schalke. Gladbach started the campaign with five straight losses which resulted in the stepping down of Lucian Favre, but the Foals have regrouped under Andre Schubert and are playing like the club most expected them to be this year.

    We are only offering plays and predictions this weekend around all four of the European Leagues that we offer previews for, so we hope our readers understand the short previews.

    Friday October 23- 1 Match

    Hoffenheim vs Hamburger

    3-Way: 1: Hoffenheim +105 Home ; X: +255 Draw ; 2: Hamburg +265 Away

    Spread: Hoffenheim -0.5 +105 ; Hamburg +0.5 -125

    Total 2.5: Over -130 ; Under +110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    With the possibility of a draw coming at Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena, we suggest the Hamburg +0.5 handicap line at -125 in this match.

    Hoffenheim has been miserable this campaign, and the line setters have only offered them at +105 because they are home.

    How much has that helped them this year? They've played four home outings and don't have a win from any of them. Good enough!

    Saturday October 24- 6 Matches

    Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart

    3-Way: 1: Leverkusen -170 Home ; X: +335 Draw ; 2: Stuttgart +450 Away

    Spread: Leverkusen -1 -105 ; Stuttgart +1 -115

    Total 3: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Leverkusen has certainly not been scoring in droves this campaign, but that will all come to an end this weekend when they host Stuttgart at BayArena.

    We expect a huge home win here, so two plays make the board.

    The Leverkusen handicap -1 at -105, and the Over 3 both make the board for us in this contest.

    Bayern Munich vs Koln

    3-Way: 1: Bayern -800 Home ; X: +850 Draw ; 2: Koln +2000 Away

    Spread: Bayern -2.5 -120 ; Koln +2.5 +100

    Total 3.5: Over +100 ; Under -120

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Bayern is one of the toughest clubs to figure out, because they don't make it easy to score for their opponents, and they have the ability to score 4 goals in their sleep.

    At the same token, they have no issue winning matches 1 - 0 if need be, so who knows what you are getting from week to week with the defending champs?

    Koln may find the net in this contest, however, so we will hope they contribute to a play on this total, as we suggest the Over 3.5 at +100.

    Ingolstadt vs Hertha Berlin

    3-Way: 1: Ingolstadt +150 Home ; X: +215 Draw ; 2: Berlin +205 Away

    Spread: Ingolstadt Pk -135 ; Berlin Pk +115

    Total 2: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Berlin has been one of those normal clubs who play spectacularly at home, and become clueless when they travel. But Ingolstadt is coming off a ridiculous loss to Stuttgart last weekend and looked really bad in the outing, with a missed penalty kick early in the match that could have changed the entire dynamic.

    Until Berlin shows us that they can travel and get a big result, we offer the Ingolstadt home Pk handicap at -135, despite the price not being all that user-friendly.

    Mainz vs Werder Bremen

    3-Way: 1: Mainz +105 Home ; X: +260 Draw ; 2: Bremen +260 Away

    Spread: Mainz -0.5 +105 ; Bremen +0.5 -125

    Total 3: Over +105 ; Under -125

    Analysis and Prediction:

    A tale of two clubs who have been struggling to find points this campaign face off at Coface Arena, and the line setters know what we know when it comes to this total.

    Werder Bremen simply has no offense, and we expect the best they will manage here is a 2 - 1 home win, and that is if Bremen even gets their one goal.

    Take the Under 3 at -125, although the push may come if Bremen does indeed find the net once.

    Hannover vs Frankfurt

    3-Way: 1: Hannover +145 Home ; X: +245 Draw ; 2: Frankfurt +190 Away

    Spread: Hannover Pk -125 ; Frankfurt Pk +105

    Total 2.5: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Move this total to a straight 3 and take the Over, because these two are going to combine to score 7 goals at least.

    We see a 4 - 3 type of outing taking place at HDI Arena, with neither club having a clue how to defend and keep opponents out of their net.

    Darmstadt vs Wolfsburg

    3-Way: 1: Darmstadt +345 Home ; X: +255 Draw ; 2: Wolfsburg -115 Away

    Spread: Darmstadt +0.5 -105 ; Wolfsburg -0.5 -115

    Total 2.5: Over -105 ; Under -115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Again we offer the total here, and gladly suggest you throw a play in on this Over 2.5 at a reasonable -105.

    Wolfsburg did exactly what we expected them to do last weekend, and we expect more of the same to take place in this outing.

    Sunday October 25- 2 Matches

    Featured Match Moenchengladbach vs Schalke

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Gladbach +120

    Schalke +230

    Draw +250

    Spread:

    Gladbach -0.5 +120

    Schalke +0.5 -140

    Total 3:

    Over +120

    Under -140

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Gladbach is not only 4 - 0 in their last four Bundesliga outings, but what a job they did this week in their Champions League outing against Juventus this week.

    There is nothing to shame about a 0 - 0 draw in Italy when you face mighty Juventus on their grounds, and that result should only build more confidence under Andre Schubert, who has taken over and gotten all he can out of this Gladbach club since he took over for Lucian Favre.

    Schalke shook of the 3 - 0 loss to Koln in their previous outing to take all three points in a 2 - 1 over Hertha Berlin this past weekend.

    Gladbach has taken three of the four previous meetings, and with growing confidence as they climb back in to the Bundesliga race, we suggest this Over 3 at +120, and also offer Gladbach at home at +120 on the 3-Way offer.

    Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg

    3-Way: 1: Dortmund -500 Home ; X: +650 Draw ; 2: Augsburg +1250 Away

    Spread: Dortmund -2 -125 ; Augsburg +2 +105

    Total 3.5: Over -110 ; Under -110

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Dortmund took a huge hit to their egos after the 5 - 1 defeat to Bayern that handed the second place club their first loss of the campaign.

    The Black and Yellows rebounded nicely this past weekend in a 2 - 0 win over Mainz away from home, and look to continue their attempt at keeping pace with Bayern Munich, who has now opened their lead to seven points over Dortmund atop the Bundesliga table.

    The road club has taken a result in the last four meetings, but that all comes to an end this weekend, because Augsburg is a complete mess, but the problem is we face a -2 handicap if we realistically want to make a play on the side.

    Let's just offer the total here, and suggest the Over 3.5 at -110.
