1.Bundesliga 2022 - 23 Matchday 18 Betting Tips

With the conclusion midweek-fixtures, we are exactly at the halfway-point of the 2022/23 Bundesliga campaign and it is turning out to be one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory. As always, we offer you the best weekly Bundesliga betting tips for all the games from Matchday 18.

Defending champions Bayern München remain atop the league-standings but its lead at the top has been trimmed down to just 3 points. Union Berlin has seemingly recovered from its slump following the winter-break to climb back up to 2nd place while RB Leipzig is a point further back in 3rd position.

At the end of Matchday 17, Eintracht Frankfurt went down a couple of places to 4th spot and is presently level on points with Borussia Dortmund and Freiburg who occupy 5th and 6th positions, respectively.

Towards the other end of the Bundesliga table, Schalke stays unmoved in 18th place and the bridge to safety has now widened to 7 points. Meanwhile Hertha Berlin is stuck in 17th position for now but still has the opportunity to get out of the drop-zone by winning its next game.

Elsewhere Bochum ended a 3-match winning-run that puts it back in the drop-zone where it has lain for much of this season already. But Stuttgart managed to get out of the bottom-3 for now, albeit on goal-difference, while 14th placed Augsburg got a precious victory to move a couple of points above the relegation-spots.

RB Leipzig v VfB Stuttgart

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Leipzig: 1.50
Draw: 4.75
Stuttgart: 6.33

RB Leipzig moved back up to 3rd spot after notching its biggest win of the season with a 1-6 victory at Schalke that extended its unbeaten-run in the Bundesliga to 10 matches.

Stuttgart came home with a 2-2 draw at Hoffenheim on Matchday 17 which was enough to lift it above the drop-zone into 15th position on goal-difference.

Despite the short odds, favouring the home-team at the 1.50 price looks a strong option for this clash according to our Bundesliga betting tips experts. Leipzig has stayed undefeated at home this season which includes 6 wins in 8 league-matches at the Red Bull Arena. Moreover, Stuttgart is yet to win on the road this season and has tasted 4 defeats in its previous 5 away-matches.

Similarly, the 1.50 line on Over 1.5 goals for the home-team also makes a solid bet. Aside from its last home-game, Leipzig has scored at least 2 goals in all the other 7 league-matches at the Red Bull Arena this season. Also, Stuttgart has let in 2 or more goals in 7 of its 8 away-fixtures this season.

SC Freiburg v FC Augsburg

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Freiburg: 1.55
Draw: 4.33
Augsburg: 5.75

On Matchday 17, Freiburg played out a 1-1 draw at home against Eintracht Frankfurt which leaves it 5 points off the top of the Bundesliga standings in 6th position.

Meanwhile Augsburg was able to end its 8-match winless-streak with a 1-0 victory over Borussia M’gladbach to move up to 14th place with a 2-point margin to the drop-zone.

For our Bundesliga betting tips experts, the 1.77 offer on Yes in the Both Teams to Score market looks the standout option for this clash. Freiburg has failed to score in only 1 league-game at Europa-Park Stadion but it will probably not get a clean-sheet despite getting 4 of them in 8 home-matches till now. Augsburg may have let in 13 goals in the past 5 away-matches yet it has also netted 11 times during this period.

Therefore the 1.66 line on Over 2.5 Total Goals also makes a good bet for this contest. Freiburg has shown good scoring-form at home with 11 goals in the last 5 Bundesliga matches at Europa-Park Stadion. At the same time, Augsburg is averaging close to 2 goals per game away from home in spite of its lowly standing in the league-table.

1.FSV Mainz 05 v VfL Bochum 1848

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Mainz: 1.75
Draw: 4.00
Bochum: 4.75

In a peculiar match on Wednesday night, Mainz lost 1-2 at home to Borussia Dortmund despite taking the early lead but somehow managed to keep hold of 12th spot for now.

At the same time, Bochum was pushed back into 16th position following the 2-0 loss at Bayer Leverkusen on Matchday 17 which snapped off its 3-match winning-run.

In the opinion of our Bundesliga betting tips experts, the 2.05 price on the Double Chance for a draw or away-win is definitely worth an attempt here. Mainz is on a 6-game winless-run and it has only produced 1 win from its 8 home-fixtures this season. So Bochum is the team in better form at the moment and should return with something from this match despite going down to 7 defeats in 8 away-matches thus far.

The 1.81 line for Under 2.75 Total Goals is another fine option for this encounter. Mainz has the 2nd lowest scoring-rate at home having netted just 9 goals in 8 league-matches at Mewa Arena. At the same time, Bochum has the 2nd worst scoring-record away from home having scored a mere 5 times in its 9 league-matches on the road.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim v Borussia VfL Mönchengladbach

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Hoffenheim: 2.10
Draw: 3.80
M’gladbach: 3.33

After a bright start to its campaign, Hoffenheim lies just 3 points above the drop-zone in 13th position at the halfway-stage following the 2-2 draw at home against Stuttgart.

Meanwhile, Borussia M’gladbach dropped back to 9th position in the Bundesliga table after losing 1-0 away at Augsburg on Matchday 17.

Taking the 1.52 line on the home-side in the Draw No Bet market will be the safest ploy here according to our Bundesliga betting tips experts. Hoffenehim began the league-campaign with 3 straight victories at the PreZero Arena and it might get back to winning ways after failing to win its last 6 home-fixtures. M’gladbach is yet to win a league-game on the road this season and has lost 4 of its past 5 away-matches.

Picking the home-team to get the Last Goal at betting-odds of 1.67 also seems a good notion for this fixture. Despite its erratic form at the PreZero Arena, Hoffenheim has still managed to score last goal in 4 of the 8 home-matches this season. On the other hand, M’gladbach has conceded the final goal in 6 of its 8 away-matches this season.

Hertha BSC v 1.FC Union Berlin

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Hertha: 3.40
Draw: 3.20
Union: 2.30

Hertha Berlin remains 2nd from bottom in the Bundesliga table and heads into the derby on the back of a 0-5 thrashing on home-soil at the hands of Wolfsburg in Matchday 17.

City-rivals Union Berlin meanwhile climbed back up to 2nd place after ending its 3-game losing-run on the road with a 1-2 victory at Werder Bremen on Wednesday evening.

Favouring the visiting-team at slightly high odds of 2.30 is a worthy notion here in the opinion of our Bundesliga betting tips experts. Hertha Berlin has gone down to 6 losses in the previous 8 league-fixtures including both its games since the winter-break. Meanwhile Union Berlin has racked up successive wins following the midseason-interval and remains unbeaten in the last 5 derby-meetings with 3 victories.

At the same time, taking the 1.45 line on Over 0.5 goals for the home-team also makes good sense despite the short returns. Hertha Berlin is a far better side on home-turf and has netted 13 times in the last 7 Bundesliga matches at Olympiastadion. Besides, Union Berlin has allowed 12 goals in its previous 4 league-matches on the road.

SV Werder Bremen v VfL Wolfsburg

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Bremen: 3.14
Draw: 3.50
Wolfsburg: 2.28

At the midway-point of the season, recently-promoted Werder Bremen lies in 11th spot of the Bundesliga table after going down 1-2 at home to Union Berlin on Matchday 17.

Earlier, Wolfsburg sustained its excellent form with a 0-5 victory away at Hertha Berlin on Tuesday evening, which keeps it just 2 points off a top-6 berth in 7th position.

With the attractive 2.28 price, backing the away-team to secure the Match Result looks a rewarding prospect to our Bundesliga betting tips experts. Werder Bremen is struggling badly at present having suffered 6 defeats in its last 8 league-fixtures including each the previous 4 games. In stark contrast, Wolfsburg has gone through 10 Bundesliga matches without a defeat including an ongoing 6-match winning-streak.

The 1.90 offer on Over 1.5 goals for the away-team gives another superb chance to fetch a sizeable reward. Defensively, Werder Bremen seems to be in shambles after letting in 17 goals in the past 4 league-games. On the other side, Wolfsburg is brimming with confidence having scored at least 2 goals in 9 of the last 10 Bundesliga matches.

FC Bayern München v Eintracht Frankfurt

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Bayern: 1.36
Draw: 6.00
Frankfurt: 7.50

Bayern holds sway in the title-race at the midway-point but the record-champions is yet to win this year after drawing 1-1 at home against Köln on Tuesday night.

Eintracht Frankfurt is enjoying a superb season despite falling back a couple of spots to 4th position at the end of Matchday 17 following a 1-1 stalemate at Freiburg.

To our Bundesliga betting tips experts, the 1.52 line on Yes in the Both Teams to Score market is the safest option in this clash. Till now, Bayern has opened its account in every league-game at Allianz Arena but it has not kept a clean-sheet in its previous 3 home-games. Also, Eintracht Frankfurt has not got a clean-sheet on the road as yet but it has failed to open its tally in only 1 away-match this season.

At betting-odds of 1.60, favouring the away-team on a +2 Handicap will make another fairly safe bet for this fixture. Despite having an imperious scoring-rate, Bayern has only scored 2 goals in the 2 matches since the winter-break. Besides, Eintracht has only lost 1 game on the road this season and is undefeated through its last 4 away-macthes.

FC Schalke 04 v 1.FC Köln

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Schalke: 3.75
Draw: 3.66
Köln: 1.96

Schalke has an uphill battle against survival in the latter-half of the season after losing 1-6 at home to Leipzig which leaves it 7 points away from safety at the midway-point.

But Köln has looked in solid form since the winter-break as it returned home with a 1-1 draw at Bayern München which takes it up to 10th spot at the end of Matchday 17.

Picking the away-team at the 1.96 price to clinch the Match Result seems the best course for this fixture according to our Bundesliga betting tips experts. With its recent hammering at home during the midweek, Schalke has now gone through a run of 10 defeats in its last 11 league-matches. By comparison, Köln is in much better shape having collected 4 points in the 2 matches since the campaign resumed last week.

The 1.83 offer on Over 1.5 goals for the visiting-side should turn out to be a winning-bet as well. Schalke has the leakiest defence in the Bundesliga and has conceded at least 2 goals in 9 of the previous 10 league-fixtures. Moreover, Köln will be in a confident mood heading into this clash after netting 8 goals in its last 2 games.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen v BVB 09 Borussia Dortmund

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Leverkusen: 2.50
Draw: 3.66
Dortmund: 2.66

After a miserable start to the season, Bayer Leverkusen is presently among the hottest teams in the Bundesliga with the 2-0 win over Bochum taking the club up to 8th spot.

Dortmund needed a last-gasp goal to notch a 1-2 victory at Mainz on Matchday 17 which moved it to 5th place in the Bundesliga standings at the halfway-point of the season.

In this evenly-matched contest, our Bundesliga betting tips experts consider the 1.83 offer on the home-team in the Draw No Bet market to be the best option. At the moment, this Bayer Leverkusen side is delivering to its full potential having registered 5 league-wins on trot. On the other hand, away-form has been quite patchy for Dortmund all season and it has gone down to 5 defeats in 9 league-matches on the road thus far.

The 1.75 line on Under 1.5 goals for the visitors also looks an excellent bet for this clash. Leverkusen has cleaned up its operations from a defensive perspective after producing 4 clean-sheets in its last 5 home-matches. In addition, Dortmund averages less than 1.5 goals on the road and has failed to score in 3 of the last 7 away-matches.
