Topic: Germany Bundesliga picks 21-24/4

Thursday:


Freiburg vs Hannover

Freiburg have 1-0-2 on their last three home games while Hannover have 0-1-2 on their last three away games.

Over 2.5 goals.


Saturday:


Frankfurt vs Bayern

Bayern have improved recently and should have a good chance at beating Frankfurt in this one.

Bayern win.


Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim

Leverkusen have been outstanding recently and I expect them to be able to beat Hoffenheim in this one at home.

Leverkusen win.


Schalke vs Kaiserslautern

Schalke have very strong home form, but they face a team in Kaiserslautern who have been impressive in their recent away games.

Draw.


St Pauli vs Bremen

St Pauli are at the bottom of the form table and Werder Bremen have been very strong in their recent away games.

Bremen win.


Stuttgart vs Hamburger

Stuttgart have 1-1-1 on their last three home games and with the away form Hamburger SV have shown I expect a home win in this one.

Stuttgart win.


Moenchengladbach vs Dortmund

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

Over 2.5 goals.


Sunday:


Wolfsburg vs Koln

Wolfsburg have been very weak recently but Koln have been very poor in their recent away games. The hosts should be able to win this one.

Over 2.5 goals.


Nurnberg vs Mainz

Nurnberg have been pritty decent recently, but Mainz are not too weak away and I expect this to be a close one.

Over 2.5 goals.
