Bundesliga Betting 21/22: Matchday 19 Lines, Analysis and Tips

Written By Alex Blowers on January 10, 2022

The Bundesliga kicked off 2022 with goals, comebacks, and upsets.

We saw 30 goals across the weekend, with six matches ending in four goals or more. Borussia Mönchengladbach, TSG Hoffenheim, Arminia Bielefeld, and Borussia Dortmund all came from behind to earn points. Bayern Munich and VfL Wolfsburg came up short in games they heavily favored.

It was a wild weekend of entertaining soccer, and I know we’ll see more over the final four months of the season.

All the action is available to watch on ESPN+, and you can always hit me up on Twitter @AlexJBlowers for advice, your picks, and thoughts on what’s happening in the world of soccer.

Let’s take a look at the 2021-22 Bundesliga Matchday 18 Betting Lines, Analysis, and Tips.

BUNDESLIGA MATCHDAY 18 ROUNDUP

BORUSSIA DORTMUND CLOSE THE GAP

Bayern thought their 2-1 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Friday night would be unpunished with Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 up against Borussia Dortmund on 70 minutes. Goals from Thorgan Hazard, Jude Bellingham, and Mahmoud Dahoud flipped this match on its head and secured Marco Rose’s side three vital points.

I wrote last week that the title race was over, but there’s a glimmer of hope now we could see it reignited. The gap is down to six points, and Bayern are dealing with a Covid crisis in their camp. Twelve players were missing from Friday’s squad forcing Julian Nagelsmann to play midfielder Marcel Sabitzer at left-back and hand 19-year-old Malik Tillman his first-ever Bundesliga start.

The Bavaria area where Munich is situated has some of the toughest Covid restrictions in Germany. It could be a while before Bayern gets all of their players back, and one more slip-up could allow Dortmund to close the gap further if they can continue winning.

If you think Dortmund are capable of pipping Bayern to the title, they’re available on DraftKings at +1200 in the Bundesliga Team Futures market.

BUNDESLIGA BETTING ANALYSIS AND TIPS

  • Parlaying RB Leipzig To Win and Over 1.5 Goals at -105 is excellent value for their match against VfB Stuttgart. It has been a challenging season for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side, who have played most of it without star players Saša Kalajdžić and Silas Katompa Mvumpa. They will lose against Leipzig, who will be full of confidence after beating Mainz 05 4-1.
  • I’m recommending backing VfL Wolfsburg’s opponent in the Double Chance market for the second week in a row. Florian Kohfeldt’s head is on the chopping block after a run of seven defeats, and one draw leaves them two points above the relegation zone. Back fellow relegation rivals Hertha Berlin To Win or Draw at -115.
  • Back Eintracht Frankfurt to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing 3-2 defeat to Dortmund. Their opponent FC Augsburg hit the headlines recently for signing USMNT striker Ricardo Pepi. I don’t think he’ll be enough to stop Oliver Glasner’s side from getting the three points.
