First and foremost, the Wolves will try to keep things tight, given the impressive form of their opponents, before looking to bite them on the break whenever moments in transition present themselves.

Jonas Wind is one of the best strikers this season with seven goals and one assist in seven Bundesliga games. He even scored for Denmark during the international break. If you’re looking for good Bundesliga props, you should back him to find the back of the net.

Wolfsburg represents a solid outfit under Niko Kovac, but they remain inconsistent in terms of results, and the former Bayern Munich boss must work out a way to help his side perform better against the top sides.

Leverkusen Making Waves

When Leverkusen appointed Xabi Alonso as their new coach in October 2022, it seemed a brave move to recruit someone with no prior affiliation to the club and no experience of coaching a first team.

Alonso swiftly repaid Leverkusen’s faith, utterly transforming the club’s fortunes. His team is leading the Bundesliga standings after seven games, going unbeaten across all competitions.

Victor Boniface has made a blistering start to his Bayer Leverkusen career with nine goal involvements in his first seven Bundesliga games, adding to his Player of the Month and two Rookie awards.

While Boniface, Florian Wirtz and Jonas Hofmann have stolen the headlines this campaign, Granit Xhaka’s arrival from Arsenal is a key factor in Bayer Leverkusen’s rise to title challengers. He’s brilliantly leading the midfield line with great vision and technique.

Wolfsburg Unbeaten at Home, Leverkusen Unbeaten This Season

Wolfsburg has never won their first four Bundesliga home games of a new season. Only three times in history has Leverkusen traveled to face Wolfsburg as the league leaders, although they shockingly went on to lose each game.

The hosts’ fine home form is part of a larger run of just one defeat across Wolfsburg’s last 10 home league outings, seven of which saw them score at least twice. None of their last 14 matchups have resulted in a home win, with Wolfsburg picking up just two of the last 21 available points in home clashes.

Wolfsburg vs Leverkusen Betting Lines

Wolfsburg vs Leverkusen Betting Picks for Oct. 21

The visitors enter this clash as favorites, priced at -128 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Bundesliga odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Just six months after taking the hot seat, Alonso guided Leverkusen to a run of seven consecutive wins. They should have enough to pick up the three points here but let’s not forget that this fixture is sandwiched between the international break and the European competitions, so let’s avoid Bundesliga moneyline bets .

Instead, let’s focus on the goals market. Both sides are scoring goals for fun and having a great pace. On top of that, they are both dangerous from set pieces, so we should see at least three goals in the game.

 

 

Questions of the Day

Will Leverkusen go over 2.5 goals in the game?

Leverkusen dispatched five of their last six Bundesliga opponents by 3+ goal margins, with the only exception a 2-2 draw at Bayern Munich. However, this is a difficult game because it’s the first one after the international break.

Who is the most likely player to score a goal in the Wolfsburg vs. Leverkusen match?

Jonas Hofmann, who has scored in three straight Bundesliga appearances, with his latest strike bringing him up to an impressive 50 goals, is the best value Bundesliga bet for the anytime goalscorer market.
