Three of my 6 bets hit on Matchday 22 to make an insignificant profit of 0.165 Units.
VfL Wolfsburg went into halftime 1-0 up and won the game 3-0 for my first half -0.5 Goals & -1.5 Goals Handicaps to cash. André Silva didn’t play after being ruled out through injury, but Robert Lewandowski did, and he scored for my Parlay to hit. Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich conjured 34 attempts on goal between them with 11 on target, but only 3 found the net. That meant my Over 3.5 & 4.5 Goals bet didn’t cash, and Bayer Leverkusen let me down on Sunday with a 1-1 draw against FC Augsburg.

RB LEIPZIG VS BORUSSIA MÖNCHENGLADBACH BETTING TIPS
Borussia Mönchengladbach announced Marco Rose would be leaving at the end of the season to join Borussia Dortmund, and the players haven’t responded well. They lost 2-1 at home against 17th placed Mainz 05 and 2-0 against the formidable Manchester City. They are now 9 points off the Top 4 and on the cusp of exiting the Champions League. In a cruel twist of fate, Gladbach faces Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal Quarterfinals next week. Defeat in that game will end all hope in a season that promised so much.
RB Leipzig is in a similar position. They are close to exiting the Champions League after losing 2-0 to Liverpool and face Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal Quarterfinals. One of their prized assets, Dayot Upamecano, announced he’s joining Bayern at the end of the season. The big difference is they are 14 points better off in the Bundesliga, 2 points behind Bayern, and very much in the race for the Meisterschale.
To lift the title, Julian Nagelsmann’s side will need to be almost faultless for the rest of the season and I broke down their chances in a Futures Post earlier this week. Leipzig’s home form has been exceptional this season with 9 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat, 21 goals scored, and 7 conceded. Club captain Marcel Sabitzer is starting to find his form with 3 goals and 2 assists in his last 5 games in all competitions.
His best was this absolute rocket from 30-yards out against Hertha Berlin last weekend. The dip is ridiculous, and Goalkeeper Rune Jarstein watched on helplessly as it cruised into the top corner.

Leipzig has all the momentum and will get the 3 points to keep the pressure on Bayern.
Prediction – 2 Units: RB Leipzig -1.5 Goals +165
WERDER BREMEN VS EINTRACHT FRANKFURT BETTING TIPS
Frankfurt beat Bayern 2-1 last weekend, are in 4th, on a 5 game winning streak, and haven’t lost in 11 games, winning 9, drawing 2, scoring 27, and conceding 11. Werder Bremen lost 4-0 last weekend, are down in 12th 19 points worse off and have lost 5, drawn 3 and won 3 in their last 11 games scoring 10 and conceding 14.
My mind is blown that Sports Books have Frankfurt’s Money Line at -129. Even more puzzled that a -1.5 Goal handicap is at +220. Especially with the latest team news reporting, this season’s second-highest goalscorer André Silva will return to the starting lineup. I think there’s every chance Luka Jović starts as well, and I’ve been waiting over a month to see these two play from kick-off together.
Frankfurt leaves the Weserstadion with 3 points.
Prediction – 3 Units: Eintracht Frankfurt Money Line -129 | 1 Unit: Eintracht Frankfirt -1.5 Goals +220
BAYERN MUNICH AND BORUSSIA DORTMUND -1.5 GOALS PARLAY
Dortmund looks like they have turned a corner with their 3-2 victory over Sevilla in the Champions League and 4-0 win against FC Schalke 04 in the Revierderby. Erling Haaland scored braces in both games, and transfer rumors have intensified around their star striker.
This weekend BVB welcome 16th placed Arminia Bielefeld to Signal Iduna Park. The visitors have conceded 14 goals in their last 4 Bundesliga games, losing 3 of them by 2 goals or more. Dortmund beat them 2-0 in their first meeting this season back on October 31st.
Bayern responded to last week’s 2-1 defeat to Frankfurt with an emphatic 4-1 win over Lazio in the Champions League. Jamal Musiala shined in the Number 10 role behind Lewandowski and became the club’s youngest ever scorer in the competition. The 17-year-old is likely to return to the subs bench this weekend now Thomas Müller has returned to training after testing positive for COVID-19.
Die Roten’s opponents on Saturday are relegation-threatened FC Köln, who they have beaten by 2 goals or more in 4 of their last 6 meetings. They’re perfect opponents for Hansi Flick’s side to get back to winning ways after dropping 5 points in their last 2 games.
Comfortable wins for both sides by 2 or 3 goals.
Prediction – 3 Units: Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund -1.5 Goals Parlay +139
