The Bundesliga fixtures continue to come at us thick and fast now the new season is underway and we have another match of real note this weekend as Bayern Munich chase three points when visiting the home of rivals Schalke. Here are our top Schalke v Bayern Munich betting tips.
A Closer Look
This match takes place on Saturday night from 5.30pm GMT and a bumper audience is expected. The betting is down and it’s no real surprise to see bookmakers side with the visitors, pricing them as favourites to get the desired result. Punter looking to follow that train of thought will have to make do with the 4/11 offered by Bet365 on Munich as there’s not too much better out there at the time of writing. That’s tight but it makes perfect sense and the form of both sides in recent seasons makes it almost impossible to argue against.
Go for the Specials
The cramped odds will convince many to use Bayern Munich in weekend European accumulators, while others will find value in the specials markets, taking more of a risk and shooting for a bigger price. There’s no lack of options to choose from either and both teams to score in a Munich win gets the nod from our team at a cracking 37/20, best price when getting your cash down at 888sport. Many firms have the same bet available at 13/8 so our advice is, if you’re following us in, do so at 888sport and get more for your stake money.
Happy to go against the grain? The draw is as big as 11/2 or there’s a chunky 49/4 trading at 10bet if you’d prefer home comforts. That wouldn’t be the biggest shock in football this early in the season but it’s not a bet that attracts our attention.
