German 1.Bundesliga 21/22 Matchday 17 Predictions

It is Matchday 17 in the 2021/22 Bundesliga campaign this weekend which reaches the midway-point of the season and heads into its customary 3-week long winter-break.
Bayern München leads the standings after collecting 40 points from 16 matches with Borussia Dortmund lagging 6 points behind in 2nd position. Bayer Leverkusen retains 3rd position in the league-table with 28 points and Hoffenheim staying only a point behind in 4th place.

Greuther Fürth looks doomed for relegation despite picking up its first win of the season recently but Arminia Bielefeld and Augsburg still have a fighting-chance of avoiding the drop. sportsbook welcome offer

FC Bayern München v VfL Wolfsburg

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Bayern: 1.15
Draw: 7.50
Wolfsburg: 14.5

Bayern bagged 8 victories in its past 10 league-matches to take command of the Bundesliga halfway through the season. Wolfsburg has to stay outside the top-half after picking up a mere 8 points from its last 12 fixtures.
In the view of our Bundesliga betting experts, the 2.05 line on the home-team to keep a Clean Sheet holds good value here. Bayern has been a much improved side at the back of late having conceded just 3 goals and earned 2 clean-sheets in the last 4 games. Besides, Wolfsburg has struggled for goals all season and has managed to score 3 times in its past 4 matches.

The 2.10 offer on the home-side to Win Both Halves looks a good punt as well. Besides being the top-scorers, Bayern has only conceded 6 goals in 8 league-games at Allianz Arena. Wolfsburg has given away a goal in each half of its past 5 Bundesliga matches while netting just 5 times in this period.

SpVgg Greuther Fürth v FC Augsburg

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Fürth: 2.85
Draw: 3.40
Augsburg: 2.35

A must-win fixture for Gruther Fürth against fellow relegation-strugglers after taking only 4 points from its 16 matches so far. Augsburg could move out of the bottom-3 having taken 8 points off the past 5 Bundesliga games.
For this encounter, our betting-experts would suggest taking the 1.72 line for Both Teams to Score. While it has scored in 6 of its last 8 matches, Fürth picked up its lone clean-sheet while earning its only victory of the season in the previous home-game. Also, Augsburg has kept just 1 clean-sheet in 10 league-matches but it has failed to score in only 1 game during this period.

The 2.25 offer on Over 1.5 Goals for the away-team presents an attractive bet, too. Besides having the worst defence in the league by some margin, Fürth has shipped in 20 goals in its last 5 matches. Meanwhile Augsburg has been in decent scoring-form after netting 8 goals in its last 5 games.

TSG Hoffenheim v VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Hofenheim: 2.05
Draw: 3.80
M’gladbach: 3.05

Hoffenheim has bagged 6 wins from its last 9 matches including a 5-game unbeaten-run to push into the top-4 of the Bundesliga. M’gladbach is only a point above the drop-zone after tasting 4 consecutive league-defeats.
Over 1.5 Goals for the home-team at a 1.80 price is the recommendation of our Bundesliga betting-team for this fixture. During its current impressive run of form, Hoffenheim has managed to score at least 2 goals in each of the last 5 home-games. M’gladbach has imploded defensively in recent weeks having conceded 16 goals in its previous 4 games.

The 2.70 offer on the home-team to Score in Both Halves gives an excellent bargain in this clash. Hoffenheim has picked up 5 consecutive home-wins by scoring in both halves of each game. M’gladbach has suffered 6 defeats in its 8 matches on the road while letting in 10 goals in the last 4 away-games.

Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
Match Result & Total Goals: Hoffenheim & Under 3.5 at 3.30 on 888Sport
2nd Half Correct Score: Hoffenheim 1-0 M’Gladbach at 5.30 on 888Sport
Hoffenheim 2-0 Borussia M’Gladbach at 11.5 on Zodiac Bet

Hertha BSC v BVB Borussia Dortmund

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Hertha: 5.00
Draw: 4.30
Dortmund: 1.55

Hertha lies a point above the bottom-3 teams in the Bundesliga with only 1 win from its past 7 games. Borussia Dortmund cannot afford any slip-ups in the title-race having taken just 3 wins from its previous 6 fixtures.
Our Bundesliga betting-experts reckon the 2.30 offer on the Double Chance for home-win or draw is worth taking a punt in this clash. Home-form is the key to Hertha’s survival-bid and it is unbeaten in the last 4 league-matches at the Olympiastadion. Moreover, Dortmund has not quite delivered on its travels having collected just 10 points in 7 away-matches.

At shorter odds, the 1.65 line on Both Teams to Score shows good promise here. Up till now, Hertha has managed to open its account in every home-game this season. At the same time, Dortmund has not kept a single clean-sheet on away from home during this Bundesliga campaign.

Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
Draw No Bet: Hertha at 3.70 on 888Sport

Hertha 1-1 Borussia Dortmund at 7.50 on Zodiac Bet

SC Freiburg v Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Freiburg: 2.65
Draw: 3.50
Leverkusen: 2.35

After a tremendous start to the season, Freiburg has gone down to 4 defeats in the last 6 matches but keeps hold of 5th position in the Bundesliga table. Bayer Leverkusen stays in 3rd spot despite failing to win its last 2 games.
To our betting-experts, the 2.05 offer on Over 1.5 Goals for the away-team is the best pick in this fixture. So far Freiburg has only kept 1 clean-sheet at home and looks shaky at the back lately after allowing 8 goals in the past 5 games. Leverkusen is averaging 2.5 goals per game on the road and has scored 2 or more goals in 6 of its 8 away-matches this season.

The 1.80 line on the away-side in the Draw No Bet market also looks a good proposition. Freiburg has gone off the boil in recent weeks having managed only 1 win in the previous 6 league-matches. On the other hand, Leverkusen has won 4 of its 8 away-matches in the Bundesliga with only 1 defeat.
