Topic: Germany Bundesliga picks 14-16/1

Friday:


Leverkusen vs Dortmund

Dortmund are at the top of the form table and I believe they havea  good chance of winning this game against Leverkusen.

Over 2.5 goals.


Saturday:


Bremen vs Hoffenheim

Bremen have 1-1-1 on their last three home games while Hoffenheim have 1-2-0 on their last three away games.

Draw.


Nurnberg vs Moenchengladbach

Moenchengladbach have been very weak recently, but Nurnberg have not managed to impress me too much recently either.

Over 2.5 goals.


St Pauli vs Freiburg

St Pauli have very weak form, but Freiburg have not impressed me too much in their recent away games.

Over 2.5 goals.


Stuttgart vs Mainz

Stuttgart are at the bottom of the form table and Mainz have actually impressed me a bit in their recent away games.

Mainz win.


Wolfsburg vs Bayern

Bayern have much better form thant Wolfsburg and I believe the visitors could be able to win this one away, but many goals is probably the best pick.

Over 2.5 goals.


Schalke vs Hamburger

Schalke have outstanding home form and I believe they will be able to beat Hamburger in this one.

Schalke win.


Sunday:


Frankfurt vs Hannover

Hannover have very strong form, but they face a pritty decent home team in this one against Frankfurt. Could be a close one.

Over 2.5 goals.


Kaiserslautern vs Koln

Kaiserslautern have pritty strong form and I believe that theyw ill be able to beat Koln in this one at home.

Kaiserslautern win and Over 2.5 goals.
