Match Betting (1x2)

Some punters will have had their fingers burnt last weekend, with RB Leipzig having been strong favourites to overcome Freiburg at the Red Bull Arena, although Die Roten Bullen could only manage a 1-1 draw which weakens their chances of becoming German champions for the first time.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side now travel to the Opel Arena for an intriguing clash against a Mainz side who are desperate to earn enough points to stay in the German top flight and they’re currently keeping Fortuna Dusseldorf at arm’s length.

The 05ers produced an excellent comeback against Koln last weekend which saw Mainz come from two goals down to draw 2-2 and that inches them a little further away from the drop zone, although a four point cushion isn’t the biggest margin.

Leipzig are actually 1.44 favourites to win this clash although they have only won seven of their thirteen games on the road and perhaps some might find this price a touch skinny against a Mainz team who would be glad to take the point.

The home team are 4.50 to draw this particular clash which would be a positive outcome and you can get 6.50 about them winning and leaving Leipzig with a battle on their hands to make sure they qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Mainz have only lost one of their past six matches although it’s open to question as to how much significance you attach to results that were recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Asian Handicap

There are going to be some punters who will find Leipzig’s odds too short for this match. Perhaps a visit to the Asian Handicap will unearth some value where you can oppose the visitors and get with Mainz along with a suitable advantage.

Mainz +1.0, +1.5 can be backed at odds of 1.810, with this meaning a profit if the home team win the game or draw the clash. You can also get a return if Mainz lost by a single goal, with the first part of the bet seeing you get money back and the second part seeing you profit.

The flip side of the argument is that Leipzig are highly capable of scoring goals, especially with Timo Werner in the ranks and the German is the second-highest scorer in the Bundesliga this term.

Leipzig -1.0, -1.5 can be backed at 2.090 and you would need them to triumph by at least two goals in order to land a full profit.

Total Goals

The bookmakers are anticipating the net to bulge and that’s probably no surprise considering that Mainz’s previous game involved four goals, with Over 2.5 Goals priced at 1.53 for this particular clash.

The Under 2.5 Goals line has been priced up at 2.50 although Leipzig will clearly regard this as a game that is there to be won and their thirteen away games have featured 43 goals.
