    Koln vs Werder Bremen

    3-Way: 1: Koln +165 Away ; X: +240 Draw ; 2: Werder Bremen +160 Home

    Spread: Koln Pk -110 ; Werder Bremen Pk -110

    Total : Over 2.5 -120 ; Under 2.5 +105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Werder Bremen is still seeking their first win of the campaign and have already surrendered 22 goals.

    Koln has been involved with many Unders this year, with only 6 GF and 7GA through 9 matches, but they have hit their last 2 Overs so maybe that trend is starting to turn around. Having W Bremen should certainly be able to add to the uptrend with goals.

    I will take this Over 2.5 simply because Werder Bremen has the worst defense in the league and now Koln is scoring, coming off a nice 2 - 1 vs Dortmund.

    Freiburg vs Augsburg

    3-Way: 1: Freiburg +320 Away ; X: +260 Draw ; 2: Augsburg -120 Home

    Spread: Freiburg +0.5 -105 ; Augsburg -0.5 -115

    Total: Over 2.5 -110 ; Under 2.5 -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Freiburg is the other German squad still seeking their first win of the campaign. They have played Augsburg 7 times and have only one win against them.

    -120 is a lovely price to fade a club without a win, and away from home. Give me the Augsburg 3-Way line to get 3 points.

    Hannover vs Dortmund

    3-Way: 1: Hannover +1100 Away ; X: +450 Draw ; 2: Dortmund -333

    Spread: Hannover +1.5 +105 ; Dortmund -1.5 -120

    Total: Over 3 -125 ; Under 3 +110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    This line makes no sense to me whatsoever: Dortmund and -300 or more?

    There is certainly no meat on the bone there, and I will not go near the handicap expecting them to win by 2 or more goals. The natural place to look would have to be the total. I will see if this Over 3 is juiced for a reason and test the water.

    Stuttgart vs Frankfurt

    3-Way: 1: Stuttgart +200 Away ; X: +250 Draw ; 2: +135 Home

    Spread: Stuttgart Pk and +0.5 -110 ; Frankfurt Pk and -0.5 -110

    Total: Over 2.5 -130 ; Under 2.5 +115

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Frankfurt is coming off an ugly 3 - 1 loss to Paderborn and still only have one win on the campaign.

    Neither club has had much success on the defensive side of the pitch, so I understand why this total is juiced at -130 or so. I expect Frankfurt to find 3 points and the +135 on the 3-Way is plenty attractive.

    Hamburger vs Hertha Berlin

    3-Way: 1: Hamburger +210 Away ; X: +230 Draw ; 2: Berlin +125

    Spread: Hamburger Pk and +0.5 -110 ; Berlin Pk and -0.5 -110

    Total: Over 2.5 -110 ; Under 2.5 -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Two clubs that sit either in or near the relegation zone early in the campaign will try to turn things around and find much-needed points of any type. Hamburger has had plenty of issues finding the net with only 3 goals through 8 matches, but Berlin has given up 16 goals and is second in the league in GA.

    Even though Hamburger is struggling with scoring, this is a 2 - 1 match waiting to happen and I will play the Over 2.5 with minimal juice.

    Paderborn vs Hoffenheim

    3-Way: 1: Paderborn +450 Away ; X: +320 Draw ; 2: Hoffenheim -165 Home

    Spread: Paderborn +1 -110 ; Hoffenheim -1 -110

    Total: Over 3 -110 ; Under 3 -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Hoffenheim is one of the clubs still without a loss on the campaign, and they have done it with defense, only giving up 7 goals so far.

    Paderborn has been finding the net early and often lately, and this total of 3 surely has some value. I do not expect a low scoring 1 - 1 type match here, so I will look to the total and take that 3 at -110.

    Schalke vs Leverkusen

    3-Way: 1: Schalke +350 Away ; X: +260 Draw ; 2: Leverkusen -130 Home

    Spread: Schalke +0.5 +110 ; Leverkusen -0.5 -120

    Total: Over 3 -110 ; Under 3 -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Leverkusen has had only 1 loss on the campaign and all too often they are settling for draws, but they are still are near the top of the table with 13 points and only 1 point behind 3 clubs. Schalke and Leverkusen both have Champion League matches this week, so they will be playing 3 matches in 9 days.

    Tired legs lead to late goals, so I will look at this Total of 3 and try to sneak in this Over with minimal juice.

    Featured Match: Bayern Munich vs Moenchengladbach

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Bayern -220

    Moen +600

    Draw +330

    Spread:

    Bayern -1 -140 Moen +1 +130

    Total:

    Over 3 -105

    Under 3 +110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    It was not tough to figure out what match would be highlighted here, as they sit 1 - 2 on the table and neither has a loss.

    Defense has been outstanding for both, with only 6 goals being scored on them combined.

    They met in the German Cup back in July and what a match it was: 2 - 2 after regulation with Bayern winning 3- 2 after Pks.

    They both have mid-week matches with Bayern headed to Rome to take on Roma and Moenchengladbach have a Europa League match at home vs Apollon.

    Bayern has won the last 5 matches they have played including the Cup match. It will be hard to argue that they will struggle in this match, despite being the away club. So I will simply hope they can both find the net, and find it 3 times to, at worst, push a play on that Over 3 with a decent line to play it.

    Mainz vs Wolfsburg

    3-Way: 1: Mainz +400 Away ; X: +275 Draw ; 2: Wolfsburg -150 Home

    Spread: Mainz +0.5 and 1 -110 ; Wolfsburg -0.5 and 1 - 115

    Total: Over 2.5 and 3 -110 ; Under 2.5 and 3 -110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Mainz is also one of the last remaining clubs without a loss on the campaign, but these two sit neck and neck in the table with 14 points.

    They split the home and home last year with each winning, and Mainz has been a pretty nice away club to bet with the handicap, finding points in every match. I will go right to that spot to look to make a play. Mainz +0.5 and 1 at -110 is fine with me.
