Match Preview & Team News
As expected, you are not going to make a lot of profit by simply backing home win here which is currently at low 2/5 rate. Mainz 05 definitely earned a lot of respect by collecting ten points in the opening seven matches. Their main goal for the season is to stay away from the relegation zone as much as possible, and so far squad is doing a fine job. Is there any room for an upset against BVB? Read on our Bundesliga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Borussia Dortmund had to work really hard in recent head to head encounters against Mainz to collect points. Last season’s duels were tense. The one at Signal Iduna Park ended without winner 1-1, while BVB won the second 3-1. Mainz managed to beat Yellows & Blacks here on 17th June 2020. Interesting fact is that penalty was seen in almost half of Dortmund’s matches played in this new campaign, so if you are fan of a bit unusual options, definitely consider this one. BVB’s back line will need to step up in upcoming weeks. They have allowed 13 goals in opening seven matches. Efficiency has been high though, scoring 19 times. A big majority of those was secured by phenomenal Erling Haaland (seven goals).
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Mainz were successful in finding the net in seven out of the last eight head to head encounters against Borussia Dortmund. BTTS feels like a banker bet on Saturday, currently offered at 4/6 odds.
As for the alternative bet, we have one value suggestion. Borussia Dortmund to win the match and both teams to score at 17/10 rate. BVB didn’t keep one single clean sheet in this year’s Bundesliga.
