Mainz vs Dortmund Odds and Spreads

 

Die Nullfunfer have drawn each of their last three league matches, but a win over Borussia Dortmund could see Mainz escape the relegation zone. Both Brajan Gruda and Nadiem Amiri are back from suspension, but defender Philipp Mwene has yet to serve his ban.

The Black and Yellows, on the other hand, head into the match following the Champions League clash with PSG. As tired legs could prove to be a big problem for Edin Terzic’s troops, we won’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays.

 

 

 

It has to be noted, though, that Mainz have not defeated Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga since June 2020. Both Julien Duranville and Ramy Bensebaini are sidelined with injuries for the visiting side while Karim Adeyemi is pushing for a start.

Mainz is the favorite at +120 odds to win the match. You can watch the game on FOX or stream it on FuboTV on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET.

 

Mainz vs Dortmund Betting Tips

  • Udinese with 18 draws, is the only side in Europe’s traditional top-five leagues with more draws than Mainz’s 14 this season.
  • Despite not beating their opponents Dortmund since 2020, Mainz is unbeaten in their last two games against their visitors.
  • The last time Mainz secured a victory at home against Dortmund was in 2014.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in their previous five games with two win and three draws to their name.
  • Dortmund has won four out of their last five away Bundesliga games, scoring twice in each of their victories.
  • Borussia Dortmund has kept clean sheets in 31% of their away games this term.
  • The away side has only failed to score in 6% of their away fixtures this season.

 

Dortmund: Nothing but Revenge on the Line

Just under a year ago, Mainz shattered Borussia Dortmund hearts as a 2-2 draw on the final day of the Bundesliga season wrecked their title dreams.

This season, it’s Mainz in desperate need of points as they enter the round in the relegation playoff place and a point adrift of safety, leaving their 15-year stint in the top-flight hanging by a thread.

Bo Henriksen’s men do at least have positive momentum and they’ve now avoided defeat in each of their last five games.

Points here could be crucial as Mainz, who’ve failed to win on the road in the Bundesliga all season, travel to Wolfsburg on the final day. We don’t expect them to beat Dortmund, but we do expect them to find the back of the net.

Borussia Dortmund will definitely be suffering from a European hangover after the Black and Yellows secured a momentous victory over PSG to secure their place in the UEFA Champions League final.

Dortmund could perhaps be forgiven for having their foot off the gas with their place in next season’s Champions League already secure but we can’t really fade them at +205.

If you’re betting on this clash, you should definitely expect a high-scoring affair with both teams to score and at least three goals in the match should be a winning pick at the sportsbook.

Bo Henriksen is doing an amazing job since replacing Jan Siewert back in February. The team is unbeaten in the previous seven Bundesliga games, winning three, and could save themselves from relegation with a win against Dortmund.

We’ve seen both teams scoring in each of Mainz’s four domestic games. The clash between Mainz and Dortmund will always offer goals. Both teams contributed on the scoresheet in six of the last seven mutual encounters between the two sides.

Borussia Dortmund’s Niclas Fullkrug has 12 goals and eight assists, but before placing a wager on a soccer player prop, make sure to check the official lineups.
