Lean on Leverkusen Against Mainz for Round 6 Bundesliga Betting

Flying-high Leverkusen travels to play struggling Mainz at the Mewa Arena in the Bundesliga on Saturday determined to extend their brilliant run of form. Our sportsbook offers the best markets in the German top-flight league.

Mainz Winless

The fact that Mainz was disappointed not to have qualified for the Conference League tells you a lot about the season they had last time out. They finished eighth and ninth in the past two seasons under Bo Svensson, so another top-10 finish would be seen as a success.

The Dane, however, is ambitious and will have his sights set even higher despite Mainz largely punching above their weight. The summer has seen two arrivals who look ideal for the club, which has plenty of young players coming through, with the U-19 being crowned champions last season.

Not only has Mainz taken one point from a possible 15 this season, but they have also managed to score just four league goals, meaning that Svensson’s side possesses the joint-worst offensive record in the German top flight, so, if you love soccer and you’re betting online, you should continue to fade them.

Svensson’s side find themselves rock bottom of the Bundesliga table after five games. They have numerous injury problems, with Jonathan Burkardt, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Maxim Leitsch, Nelson Weiper, and Silvan Widmer all expected to miss this clash against the most entertaining team in Germany.

Leverkusen Will Score

That 4-0 thrashing of Swedish champions Hacken saw Leverkusen get their European campaign off to a flyer on Thursday. They doubled that with a 4-1 victory over newly promoted Heidenheim, extending their amazing run of form.

They are equal on points with leaders Bayern Munich, and their new player, Victor Boniface, already netted six goals in five domestic games, just one goal behind Harry Kane. We will continue to include him in our Bundesliga props.

Manager Alonso continues to receive rave reviews for the job he is doing with the visitors, considering where they were when he took over.

The Spaniard has not even been on the job for 12 months. He came in while Leverkusen was in the relegation zone in October and has turned them into potential title contenders. Leverkusen’s performance at the Allianz Arena two weeks ago brought Alonso’s team even more into the spotlight.

Alonso will remain without Noah Mbamba and Timothy Fosu-Mensah through knee injuries, as well as Patrik Schick, who has a groin strain, and Arthur, who is recovering from an Achilles problem.

Mainz Can’t Defend

Bayer Leverkusen ranks second in the Bundesliga, scoring 3.4 goals per game, while Mainz is 16th defensively, allowing 2.8 per match.

Last season, the two sides shared the spoils, both winning on the road in their doubleheaders. We’ve seen at least three goals in four of the previous five head-to-heads. Leverkusen scored at least twice in their last three encounters with Mainz.

Mainz vs Leverkusen Betting Lines

Mainz vs Leverkusen Best Prop Bet for Sept. 30

The visitors enter this clash as favorites, priced at -170 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer betting online odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Leverkusen have already beaten RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach and held Bayern to a draw at Allianz, so another three points will be the order of the day against the last team in the standings.

Mainz will be desperate to win their first game of the season, and we expect them to have an attacking approach and leave many gaps at the back. The visitors’ attacking firepower and pace in the final third should be the key to this clash. For better Bundesliga odds, we will combine the moneyline with the goals market.
