Matchday 5 of the 2020-21 Bundesliga wraps up Monday, October 26, with the Bayer Leverkusen versus Augsburg showdown at BayArena in Leverkusen.

The kick-off is set at 2:30 PM ET, as we’ll see two mid-table teams taking on each other for the first time this season. Leverkusen is undefeated in 16 straight encounters with Augsburg, tallying 10 wins and six draws in the process.

I’ve prepared the most important team news, stats, and betting tips for Monday’s Bundesliga clash, so let’s take a closer look and see what the best Leverkusen vs. Augsburg betting pick.

Leverkusen vs. Augsburg Odds

BET ODDS
BTTS YES -152
BTTS NO +110
Leverkusen to Win -175
Augsburg to Win +450
Draw +320
Over 3.0 +100
Under 3.0 -112

The hosts are firm favorites to win this game and extend their dominance over Augsburg. Bayer has won four straight meetings with its next rival, allowing just one goal in that span. Augsburg is a +130 underdog to stay undefeated Monday.

Still, the bookies don’t expect to see a low-scoring affair, while -152 odds on both teams to score YES tell you that Augsburg should find the net in this one.

Leverkusen vs. Augsburg Preview

Bayer went unbeaten through the first four rounds of the 2020-21 Bundesliga season, but one win and three draws are enough only for the 11th spot of the table. Leverkusen recorded a 3:2 goal difference, as all their four contests produced fewer than three goals in total.

After three straight draws against Wolfsburg 0-0, RB Leipzig 1-1, and Stuttgart 1-1, Bayer barely outlasted Mainz 1-0 on the road this past weekend.

Leverkusen is coming off a terrific 6-2 home victory to Nice in the opening round of the UEFA Europa League last Thursday. They finally got things going attacking-wise, netting six goals on just 10 shots against a solid French team.

On the other side, Augsburg is sitting at the seventh spot of the Bundesliga standings with seven points and a 5:3 goal difference. After two straight wins over Union Berlin 3-1 on the road and Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at home, Augsburg earned a 0-0 draw at Wolfsburg and suffered a 2-0 loss to RB Leipzig at home.

They were completely outplayed by the Red Bulls and took just six shots while having the ball in possession for 37 percent of the time. Interestingly, Augsburg took six shots in a 2-0 win to Dortmund while having the ball on their feet for only 29 percent of the time.

Leverkusen vs. Augsburg Pick

Augsburg is undefeated in five straight outings on the road in all competitions, recording three wins and a couple of draws in the process. I think this trend will come to an end Monday, as Leverkusen is a better team than Augsburg, and the hosts should be fired up following a 6-2 victory in the Europa League.

Bayer has struggled offensively in all four Bundesliga showings this term. Scoring six goals in one game will be a massive boost for their confidence, so I expect Leverkusen to extend its dominance over Augsburg.

If you’re satisfied with -175 odds, take the hosts to win. I’m looking for slightly better odds with a combo bet on Leverkusen to win and score at least twice.

Pick
  • Leverkusen to Win & Over 1.5 Goals
