Patrick Kearns' Saturday Bundesliga Picks: Koln vs Mainz and Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart
Koln vs Mainz (9:30 am EST) pits two bottom-table sides that will be eager to escape the relegation zone. Both teams can ill afford to lose valuable points and I believe we see an offensive minded approach with plenty of goals. Additionally, both teams leak goals and have yet to record a Clean Sheet.
Koln vs Mainz Over 2.5 (-145)
Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart (9:30 am EST) will face off in a highly anticipated game that is sure to be entertaining. Dortmund enters this clash on the back of 2 defeats and just 1 win in their previous 4 games. With the inconsistency of Dortmund, the injury to Erling Haaland, and playing on two fronts with Champions League, this game could cause problems for Dortmund. On the other side, the newly promoted Stuttgart are one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the Bundesliga. This team shows no fear and have the ability/fortitude to pick up 3 points. With Dortmund’s inconsistency combined with Stuttgart’s form, I will take Stuttgart to cover.
Stuttgart +1 (+110)
Both teams to score + Over 2.5 (-130)
