Topic: Germany Bundesliga picks 18-20/3

Friday:


Moenchengladbach vs Kaiserslautern

Moenchengladbach are pritty decent at home while the visitors have struggled a lot in their recent away games.

Moenchengladbach win.


Saturday:


Frankfurt vs St Pauli

Frankfurt are at the bottom of the form table but St Pauli have failed to impress me in their recent games as well. Should be close.

Over 2.5 goals.


Freiburg vs Bayern

Freiburg have very weak form and I expect Bayern Munich to have no problems at all winning this game.

Bayern win with 1-0 handicap and Over 2.5 goals.


Hamburger vs Koln

Hamburger have 1-0-2 on their last three home games while Koln have 0-1-2 on their last three away games.

Over 2.5 goals.


Hannover vs Hoffenheim

Hannover have outstanding home form and should have no problems at all winning this game against Hoffenheim.

Hannover win with 0-1 handicap.


Nurnberg vs Bremen

Nurnberg have outstaning home form and I will be surprised if they do not take all three points from this one.

Nurnberg win with 0-1 handicap.


Dortmund vs Mainz

Borrusia Dortmund have 2-1-0 on their last three home games while Mainz have 2-0-1 on their last three away games.

Draw.


Sunday:


Leverkusen vs Schalke

Leverkusen have superb home form and I believe they will be able to win this one against Schalke, who have been struggling away.

Leverkusen win.


Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg

Stuttgart have 1-0-2 on their last three home games while Wolfsburg have 0-0-3 on their last three away games.

Over 2.5 goals.
