In Saturday Bundesliga play Miller looks for Leipzig to blow out Schalke, picks 4 bets to avoid the moneyline
RB Leipzig looks to be latest team to take advantage of awful Schalke side
There is really no nice way to put this, so I am going to come out and say it.
FC Schalke 04 stinks.
And not your regular stinkiness, either: Schalke is awful.
The club is , is winless in its last 18 matches (16 to end last season, and the first two this campaign), and has a roster that would struggle in the EFL Championship, let alone the Bundesliga. They are very much contenders to end up in Bundesliga 2, where they could sell players, regroup, and try to come out of this pandemic reborn.
For now, though, you have to bet against them every chance you can get, especially against good sides like Leipzig. Remember, Schalke lost 8-0 to Bayern on opening day, and 3-1 last week to Werder Bremen.
I am going big on Leipzig today.
