After a short break, the Bundesliga will be fully back this weekend. Bayern Munich could win their ninth straight title, 31st overall. And curiously enough Borussia Dortmund could end up giving them a hand.
Let’s take a look at what happened in the last Bundesliga fixture and how the upcoming sports betting odds.
Bayern Munich will play on Sunday against Borussia Monchengladbach, but they could win the title on Saturday without even playing. That’s right — if Borussia Dortmund defeat RB Leipzig at Signal Iduna Park the title race will be over.
Dortmund has six straight games without losing against RB Leipzig, and they dominate the latest Bundesliga Odds with a +110 price.
If Leipzig manages to beat Dortmund, Bayern will need to beat Monchengladbach in order to win the title. Bayern is the huge favorite -250, and the most predicted score is 3-0 favoring them.
Another scenario is that Dortmund vs Leipzig ends in a draw. In that case a draw against Monchengladbach would be enough for Bayern.
Midfielder Javi Martinez announced he’ll be leaving at the end of the season, and he made it very clear that he wants to celebrate the title as soon as possible.
What about the rest?
With three games left, Wolfsburg, Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen are still fighting for an international competition ticket.
Right now, Wolfsburg sits in third place with 57 points; Frankfurt is fourth with 56, Dortmund fifth with 55 and Leverkusen is sixth with 50. Third and fourth win a ticket to the Champions League, while fifth wins a ticket for the Europa League.
This weekend, Wolfsburg should beat FC Union Berlin without too much trouble, just as the Soccer Props hint. Same for Frankfurt, who will be playing host to Mainz 05 with odds of -130 on their side.
Leverkusen dominates the current line against Werder Bremen with a -120 price, but their problem is they don’t depend on themselves to climb to fifth place.
Mathematically, seven teams aren’t safe yet, but Hertha Berlin and Koln are the ones most likely to end up in the relegation zone alongside Schalke 04, already relegated.
Hertha Berlin has 27 points, three less than Arminia, but they’ve played one game less. This week, Hertha will face Freiburg on Thursday and Arminia on Sunday. A victory in both games would be huge for them, but Hertha won just one of their last five games.
Koln has 29 points and will face Freiburg on Sunday. They need a victory, and they would really appreciate it if Bayer Leverkusen beats Werder Bremen as well.
