Bundesliga Picks and Predictions - Saturday, May 16th

We kick things off with Saturday’s fixtures, providing a breakdown of the best free picks out of all the games at the weekend. So, without further ado let’s get stuck in.

Borussia Dortmund (1.47) vs Schalke (6.50)

Having had a lengthy spell on the sidelines, both teams should be set to go. It seems that Schalke will still be carrying a few injured players in the squad.

Either way, this game is an absolute must-win game for the Black and Yellow if they still hope to have any chance of winning the Bundesliga title. Munich faces Berlin on Sunday and will likely cruise to victory there.

Dortmund has won 5 of their last six games and with young stars like Sancho and Haaland, they should be able to overcome Schalke.

The visitors have only managed 3 draws in their last five games and will have to walk onto the field with a new team if they hope to get anything out of this one.

Pick Dortmund to win.

RB Leipzig (1.30) vs SC Freiburg (11.00)

RB Leipzig has enjoyed an excellent season and is still very much in the running for the title this year. The Bundesliga betting odds heavily favour a win for the Red Bull side, as they enter this one at 1.30.

Liverpool target Timo Werner has 27 goals for the season in all competitions and will be the target man for the league challengers.

SC Freiburg sits eighth in the league but has only managed 2 wins in their last five and everything to play for in the final games of the season. They’ll be hopeful of Europa League football next season if they can grind out some wins.

Take RB Leipzig to win.

Saturday's fixtures will mark an iconic moment in the current crisis. But as soon as that’s over, we have another day of soccer action, including the league leaders and German powerhouse Bayern Munich.

We’ll give you a break down of their game as well as Koln’s game against Mainz, including the best soccer betting odds from our highly reputable bookmakers.

Koln (2.00) vs Mainz (3.60)

FC Koln will host Mainz in a game which is set to be the most fierce contest of our fixtures this weekend. While the other games are more important, this is going to be a real contest.

With 3 wins in their last 5, Koln is playing well enough to overcome the likes of Mainz.

Mainz sits just above the relegation zone and has struggled to string wins together. Moreover, they just aren’t finding the net enough.

Take Koln to win.

FC Union Berlin (15.00) vs Bayern Munich (1.22)

Union Berlin has been steady this season. With some big wins and have kept themselves in the Bundesliga for another season.

While this is great, they will be facing the league leaders in their return fixture on Sunday and they’ll need al the luck they can get.

Star strike Robert Lewandowski has been unstoppable this season and leads the league in goal scoring with 25 goals. Interestingly, if he gets the Golden Boot this season he’ll have won it for three seasons in a row. With rumours circulating of his departure, this may be the perfect send-off.

Pick Bayern to win.
