Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich betting preview
The safest bet here is the Over. When you combine goals for and against in the Bundesliga, FCB games have averaged 4 goals. BVB average 3.96. Their last six Bundesliga meetings have finished with 4 goals or more.
Prediction – Back Over 3.5 Goals at -115
Back Bayern’s money line
Two games into the restart and this young, fearless BVB side look in better shape. They’ve scored 6 while keeping two clean sheets against tougher opposition. At +265 on the Money Line, they’re very inviting odds. However, the most important word here is “Young.”
Across those two games only four starters have been at BVB for three full seasons or more. Ten for Captain Łukasz Piszczek, five for Roman Bürki, four for Raphaël Guerreiro & eight (seven of those 2009-16) for Mats Hummels. The veteran Hummels is doubtful to play after exiting at half-time against Wolfsburg with an Achilles issue.
When you look at Bayern’s starters, Thomas Müller, David Alaba, Manuel Neuer, & Jérôme Boateng have featured in all 7 of the last title winning campaigns. Thiago Alcántara has played in 6, Robert Lewandowski in 5 & Joshua Kimmich in 4. I expect all 7 of these players to start on Tuesday.
In the previous 3 seasons, FCB have beat BVB 4-1, 6-0, and 5-0 in the 2nd half of the season. In their last 15 meetings across all competitions, FCB have 8 wins, BVB 4 wins & 3 draws.
Bayern are by far the more experienced side who know how to win titles & finish a season strongly. Hansi Flick has really got the best out of them with 16 wins & 1 draw in their last 17 fixtures across all competitions. That’s an amazing run of form even for a club as big & successful as FCB.
Prediction – Back Bayern Munich on the Money Line at -120
Double Boost – Combine Over 3.5 Goals & Bayern to win on the Money Line for +230
