Let’s go back to Germany and win some more cash! Your Humble Handicapper is about as popular with the bookies as David Moyes’ was with the Old Trafford faithful after all his winnings, but he doesn’t think you can get too much of this good thing. Next up in his money winning sights is Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in the Bundesliga.

There are no odds left to be had at the top of the German top flight, with Bayern Munich 17 points clear at the summit with only three games left to play. Also Borussia Dortmund looks pretty pretty in second on 64 points, six ahead of third place Schalke 04. Bayer Leverkusen are fourth on 54 points just one ahead of 5th place Wolfsburg and two behind Schalke.


Enough with the table settings…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?
Your Humble Handicapper wasn’t just filling space writing about the tale, if you look closely (as I'm sure you always do) you’ll see that I'm telling you which sides still have something to play for.

The bookies like Dortmund for this one, and you can back this outcome with your soccer picks at the price of 6/5. The draw is offered up at 11/4 and a Leverkusen win can be bought at 2/1. Those are the basics.

Looking a bit deeper we see that Dortmund winning both halves is at 13/5, Leverkusen winning both halves is at best soccer odds of 17/4 and the bookies prefer Draw / Dortmund at 11/2 before they like Draw / Draw at 6/1.

Looking at the last five
Interestingly enough, the last two meetings between these teams went to the away side and were decided by a single goal, so you might want to bet on Dortmund winning by a goal at 10/3. However, the two games before that went the home side’s way and were "won to nil" therefore you might like to back Leverkusen winning to nil at 9/2. However, (further) the game before that ended goalless…so maybe you should back 0-0 at 20/1.

Dortmund have won their last five games straight while Leverkusen have only two wins, one draw and two defeats in their last five. Leverkusen have scored in each of their last five but Dortmund have kept three clean sheets in their last five (including one against Real Madrid). Dortmund have outscored their opposition 13-2 in their last five while Bayer have gone 9-8 in their last five.

Your Humble Handicapper is backing both sides to score in their one at 11/20, and Over 2.5 goals at best soccer odds of 11/20 which means we’ll see Dortmund come out on top.
