Bundesliga is Back! The False 9 Best Bets for this weekend include Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen

Other picks: Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin and Arminia Bielefeld vs Borussia Monchengladbach. All three games are at 9:30 am EST.

Werder Bremen vs Union Berlin:

Bundesliga is back after a short Christmas break with Werder Bremen hosting Union Berlin on Saturday. Both teams will want a good start leading up to the overloaded string of games coming in January. Union Berlin has had an amazing start to their campaign and have only lost one of their last 5 games while Werder Bremen picked up their first win in 10 games last weekend.

With both teams not able to keep a clean sheet, I see plenty of goals in this game. Werder Bremen has failed to score in just one game this season and Union Berlin has only kept two clean sheets this season. Additionally, the Home/Away average for both teams to score is at a whopping 92%.


Over 2.5 -110

BTTS -150

Union Berlin PK -125

Arminia Bielefeld vs Borussia Monchengladbach:

For Borussia Gladbach, the Christmas break could not have come at a better time. After the hot start, Gladbach faltered going into the break with only 1 win in the last 5 games. This was due to the various fronts Gladbach had to play. With the much-needed rest, Gladbach should get back to their winning ways this weekend.

Arminia has only won twice at home all season and have only scored 9 goals in their 13 games this season. Arminia lacks the quality and ability to win against a complete team like Gladbach.


Borrusia Monchengladbach ML -175

(If the odds are too high, take -1 at Even odds)

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen:

In the most anticipated game of the Bundesliga weekend, Eintracht Frankfurt hosts Bayer Leverkusen in what is sure to have plenty of goals. Bayer Leverkusen sit 2 points adrift from Bayern Munich after their heart-breaking loss to the champions and aim to bounce back this weekend. Bayer Leverkusen look every bit of a title contender with their attacking ability and stout defense. On the other hand, Frankfurt have won just one their last 5 games but have the attacking ability to give Leverkusen fits. I predict a 3-1 Bayer Leverkusen win.


  • Bayer Leverkusen average 2.15 goals a game

  • Bayer Leverkusen has scored 16 times in the last 5 games

  • Frankfurt has scored 10 times in the last 5 games

  • Last 8 home games for Frankfurt, both teams have scored

  • 19/26 (73%) H2H matchups average over 2.5 goals


Over 3 – 120

Bayer Leverkusen Team Total o1.5 -140
