There’s some more cash to be won over in
Germany if you follow your Humble Handicapper’s tips. Schalke at home to
Eintracht Frankfurt next Friday is the perfect way to start the weekend,
winning some beer money from Germany’s Bundesliga.
This is one of those games where your
Humble Handicapper just can’t wait to tell you the basics as that puts you that
much closer to having some extra dosh with a capital $ in your pocket. Schalke
coming out on top is available at 8/11 the draw is at best soccer odds of 3/1
and an away win for Frankfurt is offered up at 4/1.
Enough with the basics…WHERE’S THE MONEY
Just because I mentioned the top six finish
odds in my other recent Bundesliga preview I’ll let you know that Schalke are
the bookies’ best boys to finish tops six (well the best boys they are giving
out odds on) at 1/100, that pretty much means that they are “guaranteed” to do
it but what you win by backing them, won’t be as much as bookie Bob makes by
hanging onto your cash until the end of the season. Frankfurt by comparison are
the bookie’s second last favourite (out of the 11 sides they offer soccer odds
on) at 17/2, only ahead of super long shots Hanover 96 who are 28/1.

Head to Head
These sides have the very example of shared
spoils looking as their last five head to head meetings. We’ve had two home victories,
one each and three draws. The only thing that separates these two sides (in
head to head terms) is their goal difference. Frankfurt have
scored five past Schalke and Schalke have responded with six in return. You
might be tempted to back 1-1 after looking at that and the bookies like that
score as they have it at 7/1 (tied with2-1 Schalke for the most favoured soccer
odds). The meeting between these two sides ended by that exact score back in
November 2012. The other two draws in the recent run with these sides were 3-3
and 0-0) back in November 2013 and October 2010) and those scores are offered
up at 18/1 and 45/1.
Your Humble Handicapper mistrusts two
things in this world and one of them is predicting draws (the other is women
with big hands). Therefore he is discounting the fact that Schalke have conceded
two goals in their last three games and will instead concentrate on the fact
that Frankfurt have o draws in their last five games. Take Schalke for your bundlesliga pick.
