Bundesliga Matchday 34 Betting Preview and Tips
There are still many permutations that will affect the Champions League, Europa League and relegation battles on the final matchday. But a summary is: Bayern are champions; Leipzig, Gladbach and Leverkusen are still jockeying for top four, Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim are fighting for direct Europa League qualification and either Dusseldorf or Werder Bremen will be playing in a relegation playoff, while the other will for sure find themselves in the 2. Bundesliga next season.
Runners-up for the seventh time in their history, Dortmund will hope to finish the season in style. Dortmund have won 10 of their last 12 matches and against their opponents, they have seen over 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches against them.
Europa League bound Hoffenheim racked up their biggest win of the season last weekend. Hoffenheim are undefeated in their last 6 away matches and they did beat Dortmund 2-1 in the reverse fixture. A high-scoring match is a big possibility.
Best Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 1.90

With the title in the bag, again, head coach Hansi Flick may rest a few weary legs ahead of the Cup Final. Despite the potential rotation, the stats look very good for the champions. Bayern have won their last 12 matches and have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 7 away matches. Blessed with attacking talent, Bayern have scored at least 2 goals in 16 of their last 19 matches (Bundesliga). They have also beaten Wolfsburg in 10 of their last 11 matches.
Wolfsburg have been in decent form since the Covid-19 enforced break and may snatch a point, depending on the extent of the Bayern’s rotation. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Wolfsburg’s last 6 games.
Best Bet: Bayern win and BTTS at 2.35

Leipzig are virtually assured of Champions League football next season because of their vastly superior goal difference. Despite their poor form in recent weeks, Leipzig should have too much attacking power for a distinctly average Augsburg side, relieved to avoid relegation for another term. Leipzig also have a great recent away record, they have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 away matches and have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 3.
Best Bet: RB Leipzig to win to zero at 2.60
