Bundesliga returns to action this weekend after the international break, and there are definitely some matches to keep an eye on if you plan on making any bets. Let’s look at some of the highlights of the weekend ahead. Betting splits courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
FC Augsburg v. RB Leipzig, Saturday October 17th, 9:30AM ET
Augsburg +500: 6% of handle, 4% of bets
Tie +335: 1% of handle, 1% of bets
RB Leipzig -190: 93% of handle, 95% of bets
Both the odds and the public bets have made it clear who they think will be the winner of this one, but I’d think twice before mindlessly betting on the favored winners. Leipzig and Augsburg sit at #1 and #2 in the table, respectively, and both have a record of 2-1-0. Augsburg is off to a fantastic start to the season, logging victories against Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund in their first two outings, while earning a 0-0 draw on the road against Wolfsburg in Week 3. Leipzig also looks great so far this season, with a 3-1 win over Mainz and a 4-0 win over Schalke, sandwiched around a 1-1 draw against Leverkusen. This game could truly go either way, and it’ll be an exciting one to watch.
Arminia Bielefeld +1300: 1% of handle, 1% of bets
Tie +650: 0% of handle, 0% of bets
Bayern -560: 98% of handle, 99%
