Believe it or not, Bayern Munich fans will be rooting for Borussia Dortmund this Sunday. Munich needs Dortmund to defeat Bayer Leverkusen to take sole control of the top spot in the Bundesliga standings. However, according to our latest Bundesliga odds, Leverkusen is heavily favored to get the three points.
Bayer Leverkusen Unstoppable
Bayer Leverkusen is one of two unbeaten teams in the Bundesliga. They sit atop the standings thanks to an 11-1-0 record, having scored 37 goals and conceding 10. Regarding goals, only Bayern Munich has better numbers.
On Thursday, Xabi Alonso’s team extended its winning streak to the UEFA Europa League. The German side defeated Hacken 2-0 on the road with Victor Boniface and Patrick Schick as the scorers. That result allowed the Black and Reds to secure a spot in the knockout stages.
Regarding the Bundesliga, they had no trouble defeating Werder Bremen in its last contest. They won 3-0 with Olivier Deman (own goal), Jeremie Frimpong and Alejandro Grimaldo as the scorers. Keep an eye on Grimaldo, a left-back that has scored nine goals in all competitions.
If you were looking for a Bundesliga player prop bet for anytime goalscorer, Victor Boniface is the answer. The Nigerian, who’s only 22, is the team’s top scorer with 12 goals in all competitions.
Leverkusen is flawless at home thanks to a 7-0-0 record. That’s right, the Black and Reds haven’t even tied at BayArena. I could go on, but I think that’s more than enough to justify them being heavily favored in our Bundesliga lines.
Borussia Dortmund’s Attacking Unit Woke Up
Last weekend, Borussia Dortmund was our Bundesliga betting favorite against Borussia Monchengladbach and won 4-2. Dortmund came from behind twice and ended up winning half-time and full-time. Four different players scored, including Niclas Fullkrug and Donyell Malen, two of the team’s centre-strikers.
Midweek, they assaulted San Siro and defeated AC Milan 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League. Marco Reus, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Karim Adeyemi were the scorers. This time, the first half finished with a draw.
The defense also deserves some love, especially centre-back Mats Hummels. The veteran is having a great season, continuing to stack up Player of the Match awards:

Dortmund is 5-2-2 on the road in all competitions. Considering they’re in the UCL group of death, that’s extremely good.
Last season, Dortmund defeated Bayer Leverkusen twice. First, 1-0 at Signal Iduna Park. Later, 2-0 at BayArena. That’s right, they didn’t even allow a goal.
However, that’s not usual. In fact, both scored in seven of their last 10 meetings. That’s why the total for Sunday’s clash is set at 3½ goals and let me tell you something else, the over is offering a great price.
