Topic: Germany Bundesliga picks 30/9-2/10

Friday:


Kaiserslautern vs Stuttgart

Kaiserslautern have failed to impress me in their recent hom games, but Stuttgart are not too strong away. Should be a close one.

Over 2.5 goals.


Saturday:


Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg

Bayer Leverkusen have 1-1-1 on their last three home games while Wolfsburg have 0-0-3 on their last three away games. Leverkusen should be able to win this one.

Leverkusen win.


Dortmund vs Augsburg

Dortmund have 2-0-1 on their last three home games while Augsburg have 0-2-1 on their last three away games. I will be very surprised if Dortmund does not win this one.

Dortmund win with 0-1 handicap.


Freiburg vs Moenchengladbach

Freiburg have been terrible recently while Moenchengladbach have impressed a lot and I believe the visitors will win this one.

Moenchengladbach win.


Hoffenheim vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich have had a strong start to the season and I believe they have a good chance of winning this one away against Hoffenheim.

Bayern Munich win.


Nurnberg vs Mainz

Nurnberg have 1-1-1 on their last three home games while Mainz have 1-1-1 on their last three away games. This could be a close one, but I expect it to be entertaining.

Over 2.5 goals.


Hertha Berlin vs Koln

Hertha Berlin have 1-1-1 on their last three home games while Koln have 2-0-1 on their last three away games. Should be plenty of goals in this one, based on their recent games.

Over 3.5 goals.


Sunday:


Hannover vs Werder Bremen

Hannover have been pritty decent at home, but face a very good team in this one. This could be a close one.

Draw.


Hamburger vs Schalke

Hamburger have 0-1-2 on their last three home games while Schalke have 1-0-2 on their last three away games. Should be a close one.

Over 2.5 goals.
