Week 11 of Bundesliga betting serves up the lopsided clash between Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich on Saturday's slate. Indeed, if the soccer odds were any indication, it's a foregone conclusion. So where are the value soccer picks to be had? Find out as we preview the game and serve up our choice selections.

Bayern Munich Prohibitive Favourites
Bundesliga juggernauts have the match cornered in soccer betting markets on staggering -550 soccer odds to win outright. Eintracht Frankfurt are hallucinatory +1200 underdogs and online sportsbooks are offering the draw at a correspondingly long +600.

Whenever Bayern Munich plays, it's considered a big deal. As they gobble their way through the Bundesliga schedule, exacting utter domination over the rest of the field, soccer bettors can only marvel at the otherworldly prowess, skill and quality they display from week to week. In a league of their own they are, there is no equal in Germany, prompting many to dub the German league a one-horse race to the title.

The current landscape with Bayern on 24 points and Wolfsburg and Borussia M'gladbach nipping at their heels, just four points shy, might suggest to the casual observer otherwise. Four-point gaps are considered nominal advantages, pointing towards a close title race not unlike Premier League in recent seasons. Upon closer inspection, one crucial difference comes to light. Bayern Munich's 24 points are behind an undefeated 7-3-0 mark on the season. Wolfsburg, meanwhile, have already lost two and drawn two fixtures while Borussia M'gladbach have leaked points in five draws through ten rounds. When it comes to bankable teams in the winning column, Bayern Munich are second to none. It's only a matter of time before they break free of the chasing pack and runaway with the title.

Towards that end their upcoming clash with Eintracht Frankfurt will play a role surely. As far as matchups go, this isn’t a big matchup. Eintracht Frankfurt are 12h in the table, riding a four-game losing streak, three straight in Bundesliga. Most recently, they lost to Hannover 96 in a lacklustre 1-0 affair in week 10 Bundesliga betting.

Bayern Munich have a midweek Champions League clash with Roma to be mindful of before they can even start preparing for Eintracht Frankfurt. Although something tells us they won't be overly fretting about it after gaining a 7-1 lead in the Italian capital in Round 3 of Champions League betting against Roma. Indeed, if Bayern Munich can decimate a classy outfit such as Roma are, one feels awful about what could potentially be in store for Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend. On that ominous note, here are some choice soccer betting markets to spot for this clash.
 

Match Betting Odds and Tips
It goes without saying that betting on a Bayern Munich win is as close to a sure thing as you are going to get in soccer betting. As such, the soccer betting odds aren't going to fill your coffers with an astonishing return on your investment. So for the value soccer picks we turn to periphery soccer betting markets.

In the last four meetings between these two outfits, Bayern Munich have maintained a clean sheet, including a 5-0 blowout in their last encounter on the previous season. So, the double result is a good place to begin with on your soccer picks: Bayern Munich to win both halves is tipped at -188 soccer odds. Backing the exact same 5-0 score is an option available at +1600 soccer odds, but the less risky play would be to back the totals. Bet365 offers the OVER 2.5 at -250.

Eintracht Frankfurt haven't scored a goal against Bayern Munich in four previous attempts, but this season their offense packs a bit of a punch. They've netted 17 goals, which marks the third highest tally in Bundesliga. Unfortunately, defence has let them down, allowing 19 goals through ten games. A nice soccer betting pick to correspond to this trend is 'Result and Both Teams to Score' found with Bet365. Bayern to win and Yes for both teams to score is a tempting tickle at +150.

Finally, on the fun props for this game you can back players to score. For instance, Mario Gotze is amongst the top scorers in Bundesliga with six goals, three of which have been goals to open scoring in a game. Similarly, Robert Lewandowski has opened scoring with three of his five Bundesliga goals to date. Backing either Mario Gotze or Robert Lewandowski to open scoring in this game could prove the savvy choice for your soccer picks.
