After four games, Bayer Leverkusen is atop the Bundesliga standings, but Bayern Munich remains the heavy favorite to win the title. That’s a reflection of the talent and the hierarchy of this team, which is also heavily favored to defeat Bochum on Saturday. Let’s check the best soccer predictions for this contest and the props available in the sportsbook.
An upset isn’t an option here, not even for the first half. We’re talking about a team that’s undefeated facing a winless team, both in all competitions. While Bayern Munich just defeated Manchester United, also considered a European powerhouse, Bochum failed to defeat Frankfurt at home.
Bayern Munich has won at halftime-fulltime in four of the last five meetings between the two. So far this season, Bayern has done the same in three of their six official matches, including the UCL.
As you can imagine, Bayern Munich winning at halftime-fulltime is offering a high price (-225), but not as high as the moneyline, which is set at -950. The point is that no matter how you look at it, you must include the reigning Bundesliga champions in your soccer betting picks.
Match Result and Total Goals
We already established that Bayern Munich is going to win, so let’s focus on the total to make a 2-in-1 wager. The total for Saturday’s clash is set at four goals, with the over offering a -118 price.
Let’s talk about Bayern first. The total has gone over four goals in one of its last five matches. However, in three of the other four, the total was exactly four goals.
As for Bochum, the Blues scored in five of their six official matches so far. Regardless of the soccer odds and predictions, you can be sure they’ll contribute to making it a good show. Go with this prop: Bayern wins and total over 4½ at +140.

Time of First Goal Brackets
Bayern Munich likes to take the reins right from the start. In two of their previous four Bundesliga matches, the team was already winning before the 10-minute mark. Let’s not forget that Bayern’s attacking unit is led by Harry Kane, who already is among the league’s top scorers with four goals. Kane winning the Golden Boot at -225 is one of the soccer best bets you can place right now.

Regarding the visitors, Bochum hasn’t conceded in the first 10 minutes of a match. I expect that trend to continue, and that’s good for you because 11-20 minutes is offering a better price, +300. Take it!
