Odds as of May 14 at DraftKings

Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Bayern Munich is in a free-scoring mood as it celebrates winning a ninth successive Bundesliga title – and could punish Freiburg on Saturday.

Bayern hammered seventh-placed Borussia Monchengladbach 6-0 last weekend with star striker Robert Lewandowski scoring his fifth league hat-trick of the season.

With 39 strikes to his credit, Polish international Lewandowski is now only one goal behind matching the record seasonal tally of 40 scored by the iconic Gerd Muller.

So Freiburg could be made to pay for Lewandowski’s determination to beat the record – with Bayern a huge favorite at DraftKings for an away win at -335.

Meanwhile, Freiburg is rated at +750 with the draw at +480. Kick-off is at 9:30 am ET.

Freiburg is in ninth place and harbors hopes of taking the seventh spot.

The value here, however, is in the spread offer of +195 for the champions to win by three or more goals an attractive +195 (Asian Handicap -2.5).

Freiburg, however, is in ninth place and harbors hopes of taking the seventh spot which will secure qualification for the UEFA Europa Conference League.

It defeated struggling FC Koln 4-1 away from home last weekend.

But they have conceded 47 times – which may be an invitation to Bayern which is the league’s runaway leading scorer with 92 goals.

Bayern was a 2-1 winner at home against Augsburg in January.

With Bayern coach Hansi Flick looking to leave his post on a high, it is, in conclusion, likely that it will claim a big win.

Pick: Bayern Munich – Asian Handicap -2.5 (+195)

Arminia Bielefeld vs Hoffenheim Prediction

Hoffenheim has drawn three of their last five games and another seems likely when it visits relegation battlers Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday in Bundesliga Matchday 33.

In 11th place with 39 points, Hoffenheim is headed for an unremarkable mid-table finish.

Arminia, meanwhile, is in 16th place – which would force it into an end-of-season relegation place if it remained there.

At DraftKings, Hoffenheim is a slight favorite for an away win at 9:30 am ET at +155 with Arminia at +160.

The draw, however, looks the best offer here at an attractive +265.

These sides drew 0-0 in January.

There was a 0-0 draw for Arminia at Hertha Berlin last weekend.

Arminia has lost one of its last six Bundesliga fixtures.

It leaves the team level on 31 points with 15th-placed Werder Bremen.

Further, Arminia has lost just one of its last six Bundesliga fixtures and has kept cleans sheets in four of those matches.

New coach Frank Kramer has been credited with instilling a new defensive resilience since he replaced Uwe Neihaus 10 matches ago.

Hoffenheim, meanwhile, beat bottom club Schalke 04 by 4-2 last weekend.

Before that, they drew with Freiburg, Red Bull Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen while also beating Borussia Monchengladbach during its current five-match unbeaten run.

But the team has not won on the road in seven matches.

With that in mind, Arminia’s need for points coupled with the fact that Hoffenheim is playing without pressure puts a draw on the cards.

Pick: Draw +265

Augsburg vs Werder Bremen Prediction

Augsburg hosts Werder Bremen on Saturday n Bundesliga Matchday 33 in a battle of two teams looking to avoid being drawn into the relegation play-off.

In 14th place, Augsburg has lost four of its last five games with one draw – and has 33 points.

Werder Bremen, meanwhile is in 15th spot, with 31 points and ended a run of seven straight league defeats with a 0-0 draw at home against Bayer Leverkusen last weekend.

The oddsmakers rate Augsburg as favorite for a win at +163 with Werder Bremen at +190.

The draw is the best offer, though, at +200.

Bremen has 31 points – with the 16th place finishers entering a play-off against the third-place finishers in Bundesliga 2.

Werder Bremen has lost its last three away matches.

Augsburg lost 2-1 at Stuttgart last weekend in its third straight defeat.

It was the first game back in charge for Augsburg coach Markus Weinzl who has been made an emergency re-appointment.

Bremen, meanwhile, has lost its last three away matches.

It was 2-1 in Bremen’s favor when these teams met in January

To sum up, the poor form of both sides and the fraught nature of the fixture makes a draw most likely here.

Pick: Draw +200
