After a disappointing debut in the UEFA Champions League, it’s time for Borussia Dortmund to return to the Bundesliga, where they remain undefeated. As expected, they come in as the soccer betting favorites, but Wolfsburg just beat another title contender. Expect a back-and-forth battle with plenty of scoring opportunities.
Borussia Dortmund’s Attacking Power Resurfaced
Yes, Borussia Dortmund lost 2-0 to PSG in the UCL, but let’s focus on the Bundesliga, the tournament in which the team actually has a chance.
After only scoring four goals in their first three matches, Dortmund defeated Freiburg 4-2 in their last domestic presentation. Mats Hummels led the way with a brace, while Donyell Malen and Marco Reus contributed with one goal each.
Individually, it’s time to start focusing on Malen instead of Sebastian Haller. While Haller hasn’t scored a single goal, Malen has scored three. Haller is offering a +2000 price to win the Golden Boot, while Malen is +2500. Include Malen in your Bundesliga picks right now!
Wolfsburg Led by One of League’s Top Scorers
Last weekend, Wolfsburg won a tough battle against Union Berlin 2-1 thanks to Jonas Wind and Joakim Maehle, who scored in an 18-minute span during the first half.
Speaking of Wind, he’s the main reason to consider betting on the visitors. He’s having a great start to the season, enough to be among the league’s top scorers with five goals. In fact, only Serhou Guirassy from Stuttgart has scored more with eight.
Keep in mind that the Wolves have scored in all their matches so far. They only lost one game and even then, they won possession with 61% and finished with more shots on target.

Home Side Won Last Two Meetings
Last season, these two collided twice. First, Wolfsburg won 2-0 at Volkswagen Arena with Micky van de Ven and Lukas Nmecha as the scorers. Later, Borussia Dortmund took revenge at Signal Iduna Park by crushing the Wolves 6-0, one of the most humiliating Bundesliga scores in recent times. Karim Adeyemi was named Player of the Match after scoring a brace.
Remember I told you to expect plenty of scoring opportunities? Here’s why: the total has gone over three goals in three of their last five encounters. Plus, a match between these two hasn’t finished with a goalless draw since the 2017-18 season. The over 3,3½ at -115 is one of the best soccer picks for the weekend.

Dortmund vs Wolfsburg Betting Predictions
Knowing that winning in Paris was extremely difficult, Borussia Dortmund’s coaching staff made the decision not to play several usual starters, including Haller, Salih Ozcan, and Giovanni Reyna. That means all of them will be well-rested to take on Wolfsburg, and that will make the difference. You should also head over to our Bundesliga soccer props and take “both teams to score – yes.”
