    Soccer Betting: After an impressive 38 goals were scored around Bundesliga last weekend, clubs are now finding their scoring niche and settling in for the rest of the campaign.

    Ten clubs found the net two or more times in Round 21. Bayern Munich certainly came out and answered any doubts about their recent tight results with a resounding8 - 0 victory, and then the 9 goals scored in Leverkusen with Wolfsburg made that match an instant classic.

    Leverkusen is featured in our match of the round when they face off with Augsburg at SGL Arenaon Saturday. Both clubs come off high-scoring affairs, and now meet in an important match that effects European contention for next season. Let's break it all down, and see what action we can find around Bundesliga in Round 22.

    Friday, February 20- 1 Match

    Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart

    3-Way: 1: Dortmund -150 Away ; X: +300 Draw ; 2: Stuttgart +425 Home

    Spread: Dortmund -1 +115 ; Stuttgart +1 -135

    Total 2.5: Over -115 ; Under -105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Dortmund is another of the Germany clubs who have found their scoring groove, scoring 7 goals in their last 2 matches, and a much-needed 6 points to get out of the basement.

    Meanwhile, Sutttgart is now the club at the bottom of the table, going 6 straight without a win in league play.

    We feel $15 of juice is nothing to ask to see 3 goals in this match, so the Over 2.5 goes on the board.

    Saturday, February 21- 6 Matches

    Featured Match Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg

    3-Way 1x2 Lines:

    Leverkusen +125

    Augsburg +225

    Draw +240


    Leverkusen Pk -150

    Augsburg Pk +130

    Total 2.5:

    Over -115

    Under -105

    Analysis and Prediction:

    What a match last weekend with Leverkusen, despite coming out with no points in a 5 - 4 loss. Wolfsburg's Bas Dost picked out a pass that he got to just before the goal keeper got his hands on the ball, and he put it past Leno to rip out the Leverkusen fans' hearts late in the match.

    Now, Leverkusen needs to regroup, and travel to SGL Arena to take on Augsburg. Augsburg comes off a disappointing match, losing 3 - 2 after being down 3 - 0 to Werder Bremen in the first half. Augsburg has been stellar at home this year, with only 2 losses in their 10 home matches this season. Goals are again the prediction here, as -115 is nothing to ask to expect a 2 - 1 type of match, so the Over 2.5 goes in the books!

    Hoffenheim vs Freiburg

    3-Way: 1: Hoffenheim +130 Away ; X: +250 Draw ; 2: Freiburg +210 Home

    Spread: Hoffenheim Pk -150 ; Freiburg Pk +130

    Total 2.5: Over -140 ; Under +120

    Analysis and Prediction:

    The line setters are telling us all we need to know about how they see Freiburg, and we agree with them 100 percent. Even though Hoffenheim finally snapped their 3-game losing streak last weekend, those 3 clubs were certainly no cupcakes, and they managed to beat another club at the bottom of the table last time out.

    Hoffenheim is coming out of here with 3 points, and the +130 is certainly considered a value line for the most part. Take them to win on the 3-Way line.

    Frankfurt vs Mainz

    3-Way: 1: Frankfurt +195 Away ; X: +250 Draw ; 2: Mainz +140 Home

    Spread: Frankfurt Pk +115 ; Mainz Pk -135

    Total 3: Over +110 ; Under -130

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    This is yet another match where goals are expected to be found, despite the 3 on the total being juiced to the Under.

    In the 21 matches that Frankfurt has played, we have seen 80 goals scored, as they have a 39/41 ratio on the year. Mainz looked terrible last weekend, giving up 4 goals to Dortmund, and now have to try to come home to Coface Arena in hopes of getting any type of result. They are close to the bottom of the table, a mere point out of the relegation zone.

    The Over 3 is going on the board here, expecting that, and then some, to end up in the back of the net, and the +110 suits us fine.

    Bayern Munich vs Paderborn

    3-Way: 1: Bayern -595 Away ; X: +685 Draw ; 2: Paderborn +1650 Home

    Spread: Bayern -2 -120; Paderborn +2 +100

    Total 3: Over -145 ; Under +125

    Analysis and Prediction:

    A snowman! That is what we call 8 goals scored, and Bayern was relentless last weekend in destroying Hamburg.We know they had the 0 - 0 Champions League resulton Wednesday, but that was expected to happen, and that Under was given out on the site, which easily cashed for us.

    This is not Lviv, and it will not be 25 degrees F at kick off, so we almost feel bad for Paderborn here. All that pent up frustration will come out for Bayern, and the -2 at a reasonable -120 is certainly a spot to look for some action here on the first place club in Bundesliga.

    Werder Bremen vs Schalke

    3-Way: 1: Bremen +265 Away ; X: +255 Draw ; 2: Schalke +105 Home

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

    Total 2.5: Over -130 ; Under +110

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Can you say hottest team in Bundesliga? We can, and you better mention Werder Bremen after you say it. Since their win right before the winter break, they have reeled in 5 straight W's, and went from 3 - 5 - 8, to 8 - 5 - 8, and are only one win away from the Europa League spots in the table.They have done it with offense, and have scored at least 2 goals in each match through this 5-game win streak.

    This total being juiced to the Over at -130 tells us all we need to know, and we are suggesting the line move to Over 2.5 and 3 to get about even money on the action.

    Hannover vs Koln

    3-Way: 1: Hannover +230 Away ; X: +225 Draw ; 2: Koln +135 Home

    Spread: Hannover Pk +130 ; Koln Pk -150

    Total 2: Over -125 ; Under +105

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Watching Koln matches is like pulling teeth, as they simply cannot score to save grace. They have now gone 3 straight matches without even coming close to the net, and even though this total is 2, it could be 1 and we would still suggest a play on the Under.

    Hannover can at least score, despite not getting many results lately, so we are suggesting the Hannover Pk, with a Draw no Bet in place at a lovely +130. Let it be 0 - 0 if it must, that won't hurt anyone at all and, at worst, we will live to bet another day with our money back at worst.

    Sunday, February 22- 2 Matches

    Moenchengladbach vs Hamburger

    3-Way: 1: Gladbach +140 Away ; X: +225 Draw ; 2: Hamburg +215 Home

    Spread: Gladbach Pk -145 ; Hamburg Pk +125

    Total 2.5: Over +115 ; Under -135

    Analysis and Prediction:

    So how does Hamburg come in to this match, after letting 8 goals in their net last time out? Granted, Bayern is ridiculous, and could do that against a good handful of clubs around the league, but that was just miserable to watch.

    Even though Gladbach is not some type of offensive powerhouse, scoring on them is arguably the toughest thing to do in Bundesliga. If it weren't for Bayern only allowing 9 goals this year, they would be the club leading the league in defense and GA at 17.

    We can thank the line setters for the +140 on the away side to come out of here with 3 points, and send them a case of Heineken after we cash our tickets on the 3-Way line with Gladbach.

    Hertha Berlin vs Wolfsburg

    3-Way: 1: Berlin +815 Away ; X: +415 Draw ; 2: Wolfsburg -280 Home

    Spread: Berlin +1.5 -125 ; Wolfsburg -1.5 +105

    Total 3: Over +100 ; Under -120

    Bet on the Bundesliga at BetDSI

    Analysis and Prediction:

    Does that say 3 on the total? Ok, excuse us as we go wipe our glasses from the fog and steam to make sure that says +100 on the 3 to go Over.

    Phew, ok it does say 3, and how the hell is Berlin going to stop the madness of Wolfsburg, and slow this team down at all?

    That is just not happening, and we cannot blame anyone for playing both the -1.5 handicap on the home side, with a splash of the 3 to go Over the total, both at + or even money to boot!
