Borussia Dortmund lost their opening match of the campaign but have won six on the spin since then, culminating in a 2-0 triumph against Bayern Munich last time out, and they look decent value at 10/11 with Coral to emerge triumphant on Friday as they head to struggling Cologne.
Jurgen Klopp’s troops have been in sparkling goalscoring form as well, finding the net 13 times in their last four matches and they’re 12/5 (888Sport) to come out on top by at least two in a contest that is 19/20 with bet365 to produce three or more goals.
Champions Bayern Munich are languishing back in 12th having won just two of their opening seven matches and their form makes them somewhat unattractive at 4/11 with Stan James ahead of the visit of third-placed Hannover, despite the fact that they saw off the visitors 7-0 in the corresponding fixture last season. The draw, rated by at 4/1, is the eye catching bet at the Allianz Arena.
At the top, Mainz have won all seven matches so far but could come unstuck at home to Hamburg. The hosts are 11/8 with bet365 to make it eight-out-of-eight but at 4/7 courtesy of Paddy Power, it could be worth considering a flutter on the away side to avoid defeat and account for the leaders’ hundred percent record.
In Sunday’s televised clash, 888Sport post 4/6 against Hoffenheim seeing off struggling Monchengladbach and in the basement battle, Schalke (21/20, ) can heap more misery on rock-bottom Stuttgart.
