Friday’s Bundesliga betting tips is for the game Mainz and Schalke. With only five games left of the season, all teams are trying climb positions to secure playing for the next season.
Mainz 05 is one of the teams that have not yet secured a spot to play in the Bundesliga for the next season. Schalke on the other hand have that secured, but they are now fighting to hold the spot for a play in the UEFA Europa League for next season. Both teams have definitely something to play for.
Looking at Mainz 05 home record for this season they have 4 wins, 6 draws, and 4 losses. Schalke’s away record is 3 wins, 4 draws, and 7 losses. If we take a look at the odds on Bet365 you will get a 2.40 for a Mainz home win, 3.30 for a draw, and 3.00 for the away win.
Previous meeting played in November of last year, ended in a 4-1 win to Schalke, who played at home. Even though that was a big win for Schalke we think that Mainz can snap this game. However, since both teams have much to play for, we actually like the fact you get 3.30 for the draw. Besides, Mainz 05 is the team in the Bundesliga with most draws this year. For the more cautious player, there is a choice of a Double Chance bet, which is a bet for Mainz or Draw, giving you an odds of 1.40.
