Bundesliga Matchday 13 Predictions
Freiburg draw no bet vs. Bochum (-160)
Freiburg suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend, but they remain third in the Bundesliga after making a strong start to the season.
They have the third-best away record in the league, with three wins two draws, and just one defeat from six road trips.
Bochum is a newly promoted team, but they have done reasonably well so far, with 13 points across 12 games. Their best performances have come at home, but they may struggle to deal with the intensity of a Freiburg team that will be desperate to return to winning ways.
It is hard to see Freiburg losing this game. Bochum may battle to a draw, but Freiburg has enough quality to edge past.
Hoffenheim to beat Fürth (-150)
Betting against Fürth has been a very profitable pursuit so far this season. They have zero wins, one draw, and 11 defeats from 12 games.
In that time, Fürth – another newly promoted team – have scored eight goals and conceded 33. They lost 4-0 to Gladbach last weekend, and it looks out of its depth in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim should be full of confidence after securing a 2-0 win against RB Leipzig last weekend. They have four wins in their last six games.
They have not won on the road since August, but a trip to Fürth could be a great opportunity to end that run.
Bayern to beat Bielefeld and both teams to score (+115)
Bayern will be desperate to return to winning ways after losing 2-1 to Augsburg last weekend. That result left them just one point clear of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table.
It should be able to secure a comfortable victory over Augsburg on Saturday. It is easy to see Bayern scoring a few goals in this game, but it may struggle to keep a clean sheet.
Arminia Bielefeld are not a bad team. They have lost only once in five away games this season and found the back of the net in four of those matches.
Meanwhile, Bayern has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six games. They’ve conceded 13 goals in that time, suggesting defense remains their Achilles heel.
Both teams to score paid off in both meetings between these teams last season – a 4-1 away win for Bayern and a 3-3 draw in Munich – so Bayern to win and both teams to score looks tempting.
