Bundesliga Matchday 31 Betting Tips: VfL Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund Fight For Top 4

Posted By Alex Blowers on April 23, 2021

I ended Matchday 30 with a small profit of 1.54 Units.

Both -1.5 Goal handicaps cashed as Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt recorded 2-0 victories. RB Leipzig cost me again for the second time in five days the little slugs. Tuesday night should have been a routine win over FC Köln to secure second place, but they couldn’t take their chances and lost 2-1.

VFL WOLFSBURG VS BORUSSIA DORTMUND BETTING TIPS

For both sides, this is probably their biggest game of the season. VfL Wolfsburg are in third with a 5 point lead over Borussia Dortmund. A win here will send them 8 points clear and all but guarantee Champions League qualification with three games left. It will be a fantastic achievement for a side that started the season with hopes of making the Top 6.

If Dortmund ends the season failing to qualify for the Champions League, it will be a disaster. I believe Erling Haaland will remain no matter what, but speculation about his future will be more intense if they’re playing in the Europa League. The Board rejected Manchester United’s advances for Jadon Sancho in the hope that keeping him alongside Haaland could spark a title challenge to dethrone Bayern. That hasn’t materialized, and with a year left on his contract, it looks like the England international will be leaving for a lot less than the €100 million they were holding out for last Summer.

With so much on the line, this should be another brilliant and tense Bundesliga fixture. Both sides have been scoring and conceding goals freely in the last three Matchdays. Wolfsburg’s scorelines have been 4-3, 3-2, and 3-1, whilst Dortmund’s have been 3-2, 4-1, and 2-0.

Everything points to goals, and I think we will see them from the kick-off.

Prediction – 2 Units: Parlay Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals -127  | 1 Unit: First Half Both Teams To Score +275

MAINZ 05 VS BAYERN MUNICH BETTING TIPS

Robert Lewandowski is back in training and being tipped to return against Mainz 05. He is 5 goals away from equalling Gerd Müller’s record of 40 in a season, and his teammates will be going all out to help him achieve it. Leipzig’s surprise loss midweek means Bayern are now one win away from securing the Meisterschale.

Since football restarted, last May Hansi Flick’s squad have been playing nonstop due to their Champions League win last August. With most of the players participating in the Euro’s this summer, I think they will go all out to wrap the title up as soon as possible to get as much rest as possible.

Back Bayern to win comfortably and Lewandowski to make up for lost time with at least a brace.

Prediction – 1 Unit: Bayern Munich -2.5 Goals +205 | 1 Unit: Robert Lewandowski To Score Atleast 2 Goals +210

FC KÖLN VS FC AUGSBURG BETTING TIPS

FC Köln broke the sad news that their mascot of 11 years, Hennes VIII, had to be put down on Wednesday morning. He retired in 2019, and thousands of the club’s fans paid tribute.

Köln have given themselves a chance of survival after beating Leipzig 2-1. They host FC Augsburg this weekend, who are seven points above them, and know a draw in this game will probably be enough to keep them up. In their last ten meetings, eight have finished Under 2.5 Goals, and six have finished with both sides failing to score.

Back a low-scoring tense game with Augsburg playing for the draw.

Prediction – 2 Units: Parlay Under 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score No +115
