Freiburg: Beyond the Bundesliga
Freiburg’s great season goes beyond third place in the Bundesliga as the Black and Whites are also competing in the DFB Pokal and the UEFA Europa League.
Most recently, they defeated St. Pauli 2-1 for the second round of the domestic cup. St. Pauli started winning thanks to a first-half goal scored by Lukas Daschner, but the Black and Whites were able to even the score in the last play of the game, meaning there was overtime, in which Michael Gregoritsch scored the winning goal.
Prior to that, they lost 5-0 against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. The result is nothing to worry about, as they were the soccer betting underdogs, but the fact that they didn’t even take a shot on target is something to worry about, quite a lot.
The thing is that prior to losing against the reigning Bundesliga champions, they crushed Nantes 4-0 in the UEL. In fact, they haven’t lost in the continental tournament, leading Group G with a perfect 4-0-0 record, 11 goals for and only one against.
Summing up, we’re talking about a talented but inconsistent team. Even so, they deserve to be in control of the odds board, but that’s why they’re offering a -110 price, which means you would need to wager $110 to win $100.
Werder Bremen: Top Scorer on Board
Werder Bremen are ninth, but three points behind Freiburg. Plus, there’s a good reason for you to consider including them in your soccer picks: the league’s top scorer plays for them.
That’s right, we’re talking about Niclas Fullkrug, who has scored eight goals. Marvin Ducksch and Mitchell Weiser have been their wingmen with three assists each. In other words, the visitors’ attacking unit is pretty good.
Most recently, they lost 2-0 to Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga and were eliminated from the DFB Pokal by Paderborn in penalties. Losing to Paderborn wasn’t on their plans, but now they can fully focus on the Bundesliga.
Plus, as mentioned before, they remained undefeated when playing on the road, making them a tempting online gambling underdog, especially at +300, which means a $100 wager could turn into a $400 payout. In addition to not having lost any road game, they scored two or more goals four times, embracing the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense because they finished with a clean sheet only once.

Freiburg vs Werder Bremen Prediction
Both scored in four of their last six meetings. Plus, the visitors have Fullkrug and the hosts have Gregoritsch. That’s the recipe for a goal-fest, precisely our soccer prediction, meaning that the over 2½ goals at -140 is a very tempting option, but the draw is offering a better price. That’s right, both are determined to bounce back, but they’ll have to wait in order to return to the winning column.
Score Prediction: Freiburg 2, Werder Bremen 2
