Soccer Friday: Miller picks a Germany Bundesliga match — Schalke 04 vs Mainz 05

After the midweek European matches, Friday has a light schedule, with just a few games scattered about the continent.

The best one to bet is in Germany, as Schalke 04 hosts Mainz in the Bundesliga. Schalke sits in sixth place in the early going, but it is Mainz's terrible goal differential after four games here that is worth going against it: minus-nine, including minus-eight in two away matches.

Mainz actually won this encounter the last time the two played, at home in late February. But that was its lone win in the series in the last six, and Mainz is 0-7-1 in its last eight games at Schalke, getting shut out in five of those games.
