I was so close to a big win on Matchday 20. If Bayern Munich had won by 2 goals or more, I would have finished 11.5 Units in profit. Fortunately, my other two bets hit, and I finished with a small gain of 1.48 Units. It’s a game of fine margins.

BUNDESLIGA BETTING: FC UNION BERLIN VS FC SCHALKE 04
FC Union Berlin’s blistering start to the season is starting to lose momentum. Their last 5 games have resulted in 1 win, 2 draws, and 2 defeats. Urs Fischer’s side has slipped down to 8th but has already done enough to achieve their main aim this season of avoiding relegation. The goals have also dried up with just 3 in their last 5 games, and fans will be hopeful talisman Max Kruse returns sooner rather than later from his torn muscle bundle injury.
Christian Groß has had a week on the training pitch with his new back 4. They played well at times against Leipzig, considering it was Mustafi’s and William’s first game for the club. I think we will see them improve as a unit in the coming weeks. Schalke has also found it difficult to score with 3 goals in their last 5 games.
With both sides struggling to get on the scoresheet back Under 2.5 Goals.
Prediction – 2 Units: Under 2.5 Goals -122
BUNDESLIGA BETTING: 2 GAME MONEY LINE PARLAY
I think it’s a difficult week to find value in single bets, so I’m parlaying a couple of clubs together.
Eintracht Frankfurt is one of the league’s most in-form sides with 7 wins, and 2 draws in their last 9 games whilst scoring 25 goals. Adi Hütter’s side should easily get the win over FC Köln, who has scored 20 goals for the whole season and find themselves down in 14th.
Bayer Leverkusen ended their 3 game losing streak with an emphatic 5-2 win over surprise package VfB Stuttgart. January signing Demarai Gray came off the bench in the 74th minute to make his debut. The ex Leicester City player took 10 minutes to open his account, and he will turn out to be an excellent signing. Mainz 05, who are 17th and a strong contender for relegation. Their recent wins over Leipzig and Union Berlin can’t be ignored, but both were at home, and they have failed to string 2 wins in a row this season.
Frankfurt and Leverkusen both have home advantage and will win comfortably.
Prediction – 2 Units: Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen Money Line Parlay +106
