Meanwhile, RB Leipzig face tough trip to Bayer Leverkusen, while Eintracht Frankfurt are at Schalke
This could well be the decisive round of action in Germany’s Bundesliga, when direct title rivals Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund face off this coming Saturday afternoon (6 March), with the winner gathering the momentum for the final weeks of the campaign. Also in action on that day are RB Leipzig, who face a tricky test away at Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Eintracht Frankfurt, who are on the road at struggling Schalke.

Where should I be investing my money?
First off, let’s start with the title clash between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Bayern, the defending champions, sit second in the table, two points behind Dortmund, and a run of six straight league wins was brought to an end last time out when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Freiburg. Nevertheless, they remain the favourites to retain the domestic crown and are priced at just 1.57 to do so.
Dortmund, meanwhile, have won their last three league games in a row, and after a slight wobble have opened up that small gap at the top of the table between themselves and their rivals. They are priced at 2.37 to lift the league title come the end of the season.
But in this match, it is Bayern who come in as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the champions to win at just 1.50, while Dortmund are out at 5.25 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.75, according to Oddsshark.
And we think this one may well end up honours even. A 1-1 draw is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can almost triple your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.75.
RB Leipzig face tough test at Bayer
On the same day, Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to climb the table when they host RB Leipzig. Bayer have dropped down to seventh after losing their last two games and are now seven points off the top four with just seven games left to play.
RB Leipzig, in stark contrast, are unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions and are sitting pretty in third place. While they are unlikely to challenge for the league title, they can come into this match brimming with confidence.
And while the betting it is close, it is Bayer Leverkusen who come in as the favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.20, while RB Leipzig are slightly higher at 3.00 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.60.
And we think that RB Leipzig’s excellent recent form will give them the edge. A narrow, 1-0 win for the visitors is priced competitively at 13.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.30.
In form Eintracht visit struggling Schalke
And finally, Schalke desperately need three points when they host high flying Eintracht Frankfurt. Schalke out a stop to a run of six straight defeats across all competitions last time out but have endured a poor campaign.
Eintracht, in stark contrast, have won their last five league matches in a row and have climbed up to fourth in the table. They are priced at just 1.57 to be there by the end of the campaign.
Again, the betting is tight, but it is Eintracht Frankfurt who come in as the favourites to inflict more misery on their hosts. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.37 while Schalke, despite home advantage, are out at 2.90 to do the same – again, a draw comes in highest of all at 3.30.
And we are expecting Eintracht to continue their recent winning streak. A 2-1 win for the away side comes in at 9.50, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of an Eintracht win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.50.
