Werder Bremen-Mainz

Tuesday, December 17 – 12:30 EST – Weser Stadium

Werder Bremen suffered back-to-back losses to Paderborn (0-1) and Bayern Munich (6-1) in the previous two league fixtures. They’ll be looking to return to winning ways when they host Mainz on Tuesday. The home side have been struggling to live up to their expectations so far this season. Mainz, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back in the first half of the season. As it stands, they sit in the danger zone ahead of the midweek fixture. Mainz experienced all sorts of problems at the back after losing to Augsburg (1-2) and Borussia Dortmund (0-4). A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Milot Rashica. He found the back of the net for the seventh time this season in their latest fixture against Bayern Munich.

OUR PICK: WERDER BREMEN TO WIN

Union Berlin-Hoffenheim

Tuesday, December 17 – 14:30 EST – Stadion An der Alten Försterei

Union Berlin get ready to host Hoffenheim at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei on Tuesday. Union Berlin have been impressive at home as of late. A win over Hoffenheim would be their fifth consecutive at home. Union Berlin have managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last four home games. We are positive that they are going to rely on their rock-solid defence once again against the visitors. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back from a 4-2 loss to Augsburg. The away side have been struggling at the back as of late. They have conceded 13 goals in their last four league fixtures. Hoffenheim suffered a dip in form in the Bundesliga. They have failed to win any of their last 4 matches, 3 of which being defeats to Mainz (5-1), RB Leipzig (3-1), and Augsburg (4-2).

OUR PICK: UNION BERLIN DRAW NO BET

Freiburg-Bayern Munich

Wednesday, December 18 – 14:30 EST – Schwarzwald-Stadion

Freiburg have been playing above expectations all season long. As it stands, they sit 6th in the Bundesliga and are fighting for a Champions League spot. They will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss against Hertha Berlin, but beating this Bayern Munich side will not be an easy task. After conceding the first goal in their latest Bundesliga matchup against Werder Bremen, Bayern answered back with 6 goals in what ended as a 6-1 beatdown. On Wednesday, they make the trip to Schwarzwald-Stadion and they will look to replicate that performance. Phillipe Coutinho who found the back of the net 3 times in their last match will be the man to keep an eye on. Robert Lewandowski continues to score goals for fun, he has a total of 18 so far this season and poses a real threat for Freiburg’s defence. Expect Bayern to come out with that same attack minded approach once again.

OUR PICK: BAYERN MUNICH -1.5 ASIAN HANDICAP
