Bundesliga Week 14 Fixtures Featuring Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin

    Soccer Betting: As Bayern Munich continues to set precedence in the Bundesliga campaign, the three-time league champions are well on their way to a fourth league title in a row, and they will play host to Berlin in our featured match of the weekend. Bayern's dominance in their domestic campaign has carried over to Champions League, as they have already clinched the top spot in group F and will advance to the round of 16 no matter the results of matchday 6.

    Hertha Berlin visits Allianz Arena to try to slow down Bayern Munich, as the capital club finds themselves in the fourth position of the table with 23 points, having won three of their last four league outings. Wolfsburg and Gladbach also took big results in this week's round of Champions League, and both clubs have important, yet winnable, away games on deck this weekend.

    Gladbach visits last place Hoffenheim as part of the five matches taking placeon Saturday, while Wolfsburg will take part in theirSundaymatch at struggling Augsburg.

    Let's get to the pitch, and see what we can expect to happen for round 14 of the Bundesliga campaign.

    Friday November 27- 1 Match

    Darmstadt vs Koln

    3-Way: 1: Darmstadt +195 Home ; X: +215 Draw ; 2: Koln +165 Away

    Spread: Darmstadt Pk +100 ; Koln Pk -120

    Total 2: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    When Koln leaves home, the goals just seem to come in droves this year, as they have hit six of their eight Overs played away from Cologne, including the German Cup right before the campaign started.

    Darmstadt looked a bit lethargic in the second half against Ingolstadt last weekend, and that third goal in the 3 - 1 loss was simply due to a lack of defensive effort, as Ingolstadt had more players in the box than the defense of Darmstadt.

    Why settle for the straight 2 at -135, when you can boost the total to the Over 2 and 2.5 handicap line at close to, or about even money?

    Don't settle for the juice, and move it up to the handicap offer to still be in a position to get half of your bet back in case they settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

    Saturday November 28- 5 Matches

    Featured Match Bayern Munich vs Hertha Berlin

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Bayern -1050

    Berlin +2000

    Draw +1150


    Bayern -2.5 -130

    Berlin +2.5 +110

    Total 3.5:

    Over -115

    Under -105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    It is almost on the brink of unfair, but Bayern Munich is just plowing through the league this campaign, which makes the scoreless draw with Frankfurt one of the biggest surprises of the year when they snapped the 10-match win streak to start the season.

    Bayern's offensive ability is rivaled by only Barcelona in Spain, but the five goals allowed is really where the impressive stats begin. Bayern has outscored their seven opponents at home this year 28 - 3, and have kept 10 clean sheets in all competitions this year.

    Berlin's defense has played decently this campaign, but slowing down Bayern is a completely different story, as you cannot approach a match against the three-time defending champions hoping to slow them down for 90 minutes.

    The Berlin +2.5 is certainly a consideration, being that they are in the top four of the table and have held their own this year, but the Over 3.5 at -115 is the direction we will take to squeeze funds out of this match.

    Berlin scoring will be something we could need, and they do have the ability with Kalou presenting issues for any club in the league when he is on his game

    A 3 - 1 prediction comes with an offer on the Over 3.5 at -115.

    Hannover vs Ingolstadt

    3-Way: 1: Hannover +170 Home ; X: +215 Draw ; 2: Ingolstadt +185 Away

    Spread: Hannover Pk -115 ; Ingolstadt Pk -105

    Total 2: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Ingolstadt gained some confidence with their 3 - 1 win over Darmstadt last weekend, but as we mentioned in the Darmstadt preview, it really seemed as if the Darmstadt defense ran out of gas and couldn't keep pace. After the penalty kick made it 2 - 1 for Ingolstadt, the newly promoted side had six offensive players in the box, while Darmstadt only had four players in their own box, which is not something we are accustomed to seeing at any top-level league.

    Hannover could not stop a second tier club from scoring a couple of goals in our opinion, and this total at -125 for a straight 2 is almost hysterical.

    If a 1 - 1 score will push our play and let us live to bet another day, than we can gladly oblige the line setters and our readers with the Over 2 offer at -125.

    Hoffenheim vs Moenchengladbach

    3-Way: 1: Hoffenheim +215 Home ; X: +245 Draw ; 2: Gladbach +130 Away

    Spread: Hoffenheim Pk +125 ; Gladbach Pk -145

    Total 2.5: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Andre Schubert has this Gladbach club playing about as well as anyone since taking over for Lucian Favre, and it finally carried over to some Champions League success this pastWednesday.

    Gladbach smashed Sevilla with five goals in their group D battle, but the best Gladbach will be able to do in the club competition is an appearance in Europa League, as Juventus and Manchester City have clinched their way to the round of 16 from the group with one match remaining in group stage.

    Hoffenheim will be heading to South Africa for the winter break, and maybe they will be able to find someone to help them on offense over the time away from the pitch. The club spent last year here, and are hoping to retrieve some of the success it brought to the club last year for the second half of the campaign.

    Until we get to the break, we expect Hoffenheim to continue to fall in the table, so at +135, that is plenty valuable to grab the Gladbach 3-Way offer to follow up their Champions League success this week, hopeful to come out with another three points.

    Werder Bremen vs Hamburger

    3-Way: 1: Bremen +140 Home ; X: +235 Draw ; 2: Hamburg +205 Away

    Spread: Bremen Pk -135 ; Hamburg Pk +115

    Total 2.5: Over -110 ; Under -110

    Bet on The Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Hamburg came up with a huge result last weekend, upsetting second place Dortmund who are trying to keep Bayern Munich within reach atop the table.

    In all honesty, however, Dortmund didn't exactly look like a club who were trying to keep pace with anyone, allowing a penalty kick and having an own goal scored in the 3 - 1 loss to Hamburg.

    Werder Bremen has been alternating wins and losses for their last five outings in league play, but are coming off a humiliating result last weekend against Wolfsburg, allowing six goals with no reply.

    Hamburg has lost six of their last seven outings at Weserstadion, with the other result being a draw, but we see that coming to an end this weekend.

    We offer the Hamburg Pk Draw no Bet action at +115, expecting some type of result from the away side.

    Mainz vs Frankfurt

    3-Way: 1: Mainz +125 Home ; X: +245 Draw ; 2: Frankfurt +220 Away

    Spread: Mainz -0.5 +125 ; Frankfurt +0.5 -145

    Total 2.5: Over -135 ; Under +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    We expect nothing here, with goal scoring opportunities being limited to just a few chances that don't produce much offense at all.

    At +115, we are simply going to suggest this Under 2.5, with a scoreless draw likely to come to fruition.

    Sunday November 28- 3 Matches

    Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart

    3-Way: 1: Dortmund -445 Home ; X: +635 Draw ; 2: Stuttgart +1025 Away

    Spread: Dortmund -2 -115 ; Stuttgart +2 -105

    Total 4: Over +115 ; Under -135

    Bet on The Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    What better way for Dortmund to put last weekend's loss behind them than to play host to Stuttgart this weekend?

    The line setters completely agree that it will be a long evening at Signal Iduna Park, issuing a -2 handicap and a 4 on the total, which is quite a statement.

    Stuttgart has allowed four goals in three of their last four outings, and at +115, even if we need to push the action the Over 4 is going on the board for us.

    Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke

    3-Way: 1: Leverkusen -155 Home ; X: +300 Draw ; 2: Schalke +445 Away

    Spread: Leverkusen -0.5 -155 ; Schalke +0.5 +135

    Total 2.5: Over -150 ; Under +130

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Leverkusen and Schalke have produced almost the exact same results this campaign. Both are 6 - 2 - 5 with 20 points through 12 matches, although Schalke is hoping to erase a four-match stretch without a win.

    Leverkusen has a short rest coming into the match, after a 1 - 1 draw on matchday against BATE Borisov, which also includes traveling from Belarus to return home.

    Move this total to a straight 3, because obviously -150 on the Over 2.5 is simply not going to make anyone any money at that price.

    The Over 3 at +105 is where the value is for sure, as a 2 - 1 result will, at worst, push our action, while leaving us in position to cash it out with that fourth goal we expect to see at some point.

    Augsburg vs Wolfsburg

    3-Way: 1: Augsburg +235 Home ; X: +245 Draw ; 2: Wolfsburg +125 Away

    Spread: Augsburg +0.5 -145 ; Wolfsburg -0.5 +125

    Total 2.5: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Bet on The Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Wolfsburg enjoyed a 2 - 0 victory in Russia in their group stage outing against CSKA Moscow this week, which followed up a 6 - 0 thrashing of Werder Bremen the weekend before.

    Now we get to take advantage of a total with an Augsburg club that has hit seven straight Overs in all competitions, coming off the 3 - 2 Europa League defeat to Bilbaoon Thursday.

    The Over 2.5 at -125 might be the most outrageous line we could see in this entire round, as we expect that to hit before the end of the first half, much less through full time.
