RB Leipzig is Rock-Solid at home

As expected, the Bundesliga season is very entertaining. The first four teams in the standings are separated by just seven points with RB Leipzig sitting fourth, just three points behind second-place Bayern Munich.

Buoyed by a 3-2 win over Borussia Dortmund at Signal-Iduna-Park, Leipzig will look to stay in the title race when they take on Hoffenheim in the closing match of Saturday’s program.

The Red Bulls have been scoring goals for fun of late and are unbeaten at home this season so we will continue to include them in our Bundesliga picks and parlays.

RB Leipzig’s big guns are set to be recalled as they return to Bundesliga action here after being rested in the 2-1 win over Young Boys, with manager Marco Rose deciding to rotate his squad for their final group match.

Therefore the likes of Lois Openda, Janis Blaswich and Xavi Simons, all ever-present in the league this season, should be fresh for the club’s final two games of the calendar year.

Hoffenheim Performing Well on the Road

Manager Pellegrino Matarazzo described his side’s performance in the 3-1 win over Bochum as an important step as they got their bid to qualify for Europe for only the fourth time back on track.

However, the Blues’ record against the Bundesliga’s big hitters is a major concern, and despite their brilliant away record, we expect them to return home empty-handed.

Given Hoffenheim’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big chance they actually find the back of the net on Saturday’s clash.

All Wout Weghorst, Bambase Conte, Mergim Berisha, Marco John, and Dennis Geiger are out of contention with injuries for the away team. Something to consider for Bundesliga online betting predictions.

High-Scoring Affairs in Bundesliga

The two teams played out some high-scoring affairs over the years with three of the last four mutual encounters between the two sides ending with at least three goals on the scoresheet. Leipzig won each of the last four head-to-heads across all competitions against Hoffenheim, with three of them happening in front of their fans.

RB Leipzig is the only team in the Bundesliga yet to concede a home goal in the opening 30 minutes of a league match this season. RB Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen is attempting to net in a fourth successive league game for the first time in his career.

RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim Betting Picks for December 16

The hosts enter this clash at favorites being priced at -220 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Bundesliga odds while the goal line is set at 3½.

Hoffenheim has a bit of confidence entering this clash thanks to finally ending a run of five matches without a victory but their record against Leipzig is disappointing.

With their most important players back in action, it should be an easy task for the hosts to pick up the three points. We expect a high-scoring affair in which both sides should have enough to find the back of the net.

Bundesliga Pick: Over 2½ and Both Teams To Score – Yes (-140)

 

 

 

Questions Of The Day

Will Timo Werner have over 1½ shots on target?


Timo Werner returned from injury in the Champions League clash against Young Boys but he should be forced on Saturday against Hoffenheim. This season he’s playing less time so make sure you check the official starting lineup before you place your bets.

Will the game go over or under 2½ total goals?


Bundesliga is one of the most entertaining leagues in Europe with an average of 3.5+ goals per game this season. The two teams are great going forward and we don’t expect this match to stay under.
