TSG 1899 Hoffenheim vs. FC Bayern Munich

Saturday, October 22, 2022 – 09:30 AM EDT at PreZero Arena

Bundesliga Trends

  • Bayern is unbeaten at half-time in 12 consecutive games.
  • Bayern is undefeated in 25 of their last 29 encounters with Hoffenheim.
  • Bayern has won by 2+ goals in 3 consecutive games in all competitions.
  • Hoffenheim has seen over 2.5 goals in 3 of their most recent fixtures.

Top Four Battle

Sitting in second place in the Bundesliga table, defending champions Bayern Munich is looking to close the current 4-point gap between themselves and table toppers Union Berlin.

However, Hoffenheim's weekend opponents can surpass them in the standings if they deliver a shock victory on home turf this weekend.

Hoffenheim is 2 points behind Bayern in the standings. Following a 3-0 success over Schalke last Friday, André Breitenreiter will have faith in his squad’s ability to cause an upset against the mighty Bayern Munich on Saturday.

A Step up in Competition

Following consecutive meetings with relegation candidates, Kraichgauer will test whether their league positioning is serious or temporary when facing Julian Nagelsmann’s squad.

Worryingly for Hoffenheim, Bayern dismantled fellow table toppers Freiburg last Sunday, and a 5-0 scoreline presented 5 different goalscorers, proving this squad is diverse in the final 3rd and as dangerous as they’ve ever been.

Since winning their initial 3 Bundesliga openers, Bayern has only won 2 of their following 7 fixtures. However, their recent form has been electric, and we should expect the German giants to give Hoffenheim a wake-up call in defense.

Pick and Prediction

The Bundesliga betting odds favor the visitors, which isn’t surprising. The -200 moneyline isn’t tempting, despite believing Bayern will take all 3 points.

As Hoffenheim has rarely missed the net on home soil this term, expecting an away win and both teams to score will significantly boost our odds.

Score Prediction: Hoffenheim 1 – Bayern Munich 3

Real Madrid CF vs. Sevilla FC

Saturday, October 22, 2022 - 03:00 PM EDT at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

La Liga Trends

  • Real Madrid is undefeated in 19 consecutive games in all competitions.
  • Real Madrid has won at half-time and full-time in 3 consecutive La Liga games.
  • Under 2.5 goals landed in 5 of Sevilla’s previous 6 La Liga meetings.

Four on the Bounce

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid squad will be looking to make it 4 consecutive La Liga victories and extend their 1st position in the table when they welcome 12th-placed Sevilla on Saturday.

And with a Sevilla team who’s collected a mere 10 points from the first 10 games of the season, the Spanish champions will welcome a lackluster side following an impressive 3-1 success in El Clásico last Sunday.

Real Madrid has won 9 of their 10 domestic outings this term, picking up 28 points to sit comfortably atop the La Liga standings. They’ve netted 25 goals in the process and have already booked their position in the Champions League Round of 16 after taking first place in the group stage.

No Easy Task

Sevilla has lost 6 of their previous 7 meetings with Los Blancos, and with nothing more than average performances this term, heading to the Bernabeu with the expectations of a positive result would be wishful thinking.

After a 4th-place finish last season, expectations were high heading into the 2022/23 season, but Sevilla is already 10 points behind 4th-placed Atletico Madrid, and their Europa Cup outings have also produced questionable results as they’re likely to exit the tournament early.

Pick and Prediction

La Liga betting odds favor Real Madrid by a significant margin, and the moneyline price isn’t pretty. However, Sevilla has managed to keep domestic games relatively low scoring, and if we combine Under 3.5 goals with the Madrid moneyline, we can grab ourselves some tasty plus money.

Score Prediction: Real Madrid 1 – Sevilla 1
