The German title is over, but there is still a cup to be won and European place to be finalized. William Hill's Lee Phelps is looking at the odds on the Bayer Bayern game for his latest free betting pick.

The race for the Champions League places is hotting up in the Bundesliga, with Wolfsburg, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen all in with a shot. Bayer need to negotiate a game against the champions Bayern Munich this weekend.


Bayer Leverkusen
Leverkusen’s last league loss was the 5-4 defeat to Wolfsburg in February, since then they have won four straight home games, scoring 13 goals and conceding none. During that the run they actually played Bayern in the German Cup and drew nil nil, with Munich winning on penalties.

The draw has been common result with four of the last six at the BayArena between these two teams.


Bayern Munich
It’s been an up and down week for Bayern, winning the title, losing on penalties to Dortmund in the cup semifinal and losing more players to injury.

Arjen Robben is out of Wednesday’s Champions League last four match with Barcelona with a calf tear and Robert Lewandowski will be missing for this game too. You have to wonder how much they will risk other players in a game they don’t need to win.

Bayern at over 3.0 (2/1) on the soccer odds looks, but that price is obviously taking account of the injuries, the lack of motivation in the league and the Barca game. We may even see them ‘rehearsing’ a more solid display for their semi-final date with Messi and Co. They have only conceded seven goals away from home all season in the Bundesliga.

Soccer Picks
I think both sides will be happy with a draw here, so there are a few ways to play with your soccer picks. Bayern and the draw is 1.62 (8/13), while the draw no bet option is 2.2 (11/10). I going to go for the plain old draw at 3.4 (12/5).
