If you love Bundesliga player props, he is the player to watch and bet on.

Borussia Dortmund and Total Over 2½ (+130)

Jadon Sancho made a winning return to Borussia Dortmund, supplying an assist for Marco Reus, while goals from him, Julian Brandt, and Youssoufa Moukoko snapped a four-game winless run for the Westphalians at bottom-placed Darmstadt.

Dortmund’s attacking firepower is well known and Koln’s defensive struggles will be the key to this fixture. Koln can’t defend and we expect them to drop all points in another high-scoring affair.
