The German Bundesliga is the football league that produces the highest number of goals compared to all other national leagues accross Europe. The atmosphere is always great as the stadiums are packed consistently, while the game itself is fast, dynamic and open. These are just some of the factors behind our straight soccer picks for today.
Wolfsburg v Bayern Munich Prediction
This is certainly one of the most interesting derbies of the second round, as a rejuvenated Wolfsburg side led by ex-Bayern coach Felix Magath take on a hungry Bavarian side that suffered a shock defeat at home against Borrussia M’Gladbach (0-1). One of the best soccer betting picks for today is a Goal/Goal in our Wolfsburg v Bayern prediction. Bayern’s new goalkeeper Neuer has all the pressure in the world on him now, especially after his serious mistake that resulted in Mönchengladbach’s goal in the opener. This should be an extra advantage for the Wolves as their attempts to score some goals in this fixture. On the other end, Ribery is expected to feature from the very start, although Robben is definitely out with back and groin pain.
A major indicitor in this betting prediction from the Bundesliga is that Wolfsburg are actually on top of the league thanks to their 3-0 away win at Cologne. A game in which they showed good organization and discipline. Bayern are guaranteed to score at least once afer losing their opening game, while one of our Bundesliga predictions for this 2011/12 season is that Wolfsburg will show drastic improvement from last season when they fought for survival. This year their fight should be at the other end of the table, and our Wolves v Bayern pick is for the home team to score as well thanks to the likes of Simon Kjaer, Mario Mandzukic, and Josue.
Betting Verdict: Goal/Goal @ 1,57
The next best football betting pick for today’s Bundesliga is the Goal/Goal on Freiburg v Mainz. Freiburg have always been a solid team at home, and look almost certain to find the net here as they will be playing at their own stadium, fans support, along with great options in attack in the likes of Cisse and Dembele. Mainz is up against them, and we would like to remind you that they were on top of the Bundesliga for large parts at the start of last year. They will strong this year as well and you can look no further than their last match – a 2-0 win at home against Leverkusen for a proof.

We continue with our Goal/Goal betting selection from the Bundelisga on August 13th, with a Hoffenheim v Borussia Dortmund prediction. Borussia have started in the same way the ended last season – with solid display resulting in a win. A lot of soccer betting analysts expect them to fall in 2011, as they sold Sahin to Real Madrid, but their former playmaker has not been missed at all by his teammates. Dortmund won their opener in a convincing fashion as they beat Hamburger 3-1 at home. As you would expect, Mario Gotze was the man of the match, while Grosskreutz scored the other two. Bottom line is that BVB will easily score at least once in this Hoffenheim v Borussia Dortmund prediction, while the Hoffas also demonstrated good form at the start and with players like Ryan Babel, Salihovic and Obasi, they should please their fans by putting one past the reigning champions.
Betting Verdict: Goal/Goal @ 1,72
