Best Bets and Predictions for Bundesliga Round 22 (February 11-13, 2022)

| February 10, 2022 12:31 am PDT

Last weekend, Bayern Munich moved nine points clear at the Bundesliga summit with a 3-2 victory over RB Leipzig. Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen thrashed Borussia Dortmund 5-2 to cement third place.

You will be pleased to hear that there is another full round of Bundesliga games to bet on this weekend. Let’s check out the Round 22 Bundesliga schedule before diving into some predictions and betting picks.

  • RB Leipzig vs. Koln
  • Bochum vs. Bayern Munich
  • Freiburg vs. Mainz
  • Greuther Furth vs. Hertha BSC
  • Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Augsburg
  • Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Wolfsburg
  • Bayer Leverkusen vs. Stuttgart
  • Union Berlin vs. Borussia Dortmund
  • Hoffenheim vs. Arminia Bielefeld

With nine games on the schedule, there is no shortage of Bundesliga betting opportunities this weekend. Join me as I take you through my Bundesliga predictions for Round 22.

RB Leipzig and Koln to Draw

There is no denying that RB Leipzig has improved since Domenico Tedesco replaced Jesse March back in December. In fact, the Red Bulls kicked off 2022 with a three-game winning streak before losing 3-2 to Bayern Munich last weekend.

Still, the Billy Goats find themselves one place and one point ahead of the Red Bulls. They have won four of their previous six Bundesliga games and claimed an impressive 1-0 victory over high-flying Freiburg last time out.

There is very little between these two sides right now. For that reason, I expect Leipzig and Koln to play out a draw on Friday.

Bayern Munich to Beat Bochum

Bayern Munich doesn’t deal in draws. The defending champions have won 17 of their last 20 league matches, registering just three losses along the way.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men have also won eight of their past nine Bundesliga outings, scoring a whopping 27 goals in the process. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Robert Lewandowski has netted 24 goals in 21 league appearances this season.

On the flip side, eleventh-place Bochum sits 27 points behind Bayern after picking up just seven wins in 21 Bundesliga games. Having won only one of their previous seven, things could get pretty embarrassing for Thomas Reis’ boys on Saturday.

Eintracht Frankfurt to Beat Wolfsburg

A run of seven wins in 11 games has seen Eintracht Frankfurt climb to ninth place following a slow start to the campaign. As a result, the Eagles find themselves seven points clear of twelfth-place Wolfsburg.

By contrast, the Wolves have taken a turn for the worse over the past few months. Not only have they won just one of their past ten Bundesliga games, but they have also suffered seven defeats in their previous nine.

Due to a six-game losing streak between November and January, the Wolves have lost each of their last four away outings. Unfortunately, they are playing away from home this weekend.

Bayer Leverkusen to Beat Stuttgart

Bayer Leverkusen heads into Round 22 on a three-match winning streak, having crushed Borussia Dortmund 5-2 last time out. Gerardo Seoane’s team scored five in Round 21, too, thrashing Augsburg 5-1.

Czech striker Patrik Schick has terrorized opposition defenses all season, scoring 18 goals in as many Bundesliga games. Having netted ten in his last eight, he is among the league’s in-form forwards right now.

At the opposite end of the standings, Stuttgart sits seventeenth – 20 points behind third-place Bayer. The Reds have lost five of their past six Bundesliga encounters, so I can’t see them avoiding defeat against in-form Leverkusen.

Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund to Draw

Believe it or not, only Bayern Munich has lost fewer Bundesliga games than Union Berlin this season. The Iron Ones have suffered just five defeats in 21 outings and have lost just one of their previous six.

It is also worth noting that Union has suffered one loss in ten home matches. That is not good news for a Borussia Dortmund team that has only managed to win half of its ten away games in the Bundesliga this term.

Following last weekend’s 5-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayer, Dortmund will be eager to get back on track. But I’m confident that Union will hold BVB to a draw on Sunday.

More Bundesliga Predictions for Round 22

  • Freiburg to Beat Mainz
  • Greuther Furth and Heartha BSC to Draw
  • Borussia Monchengladbach to Beat Augsburg
  • Hoffenheim and Arminia Bielefeld to Draw

Fifth-place Freiburg shouldn’t struggle to get the better of tenth-place Mainz. After all, Mainz has suffered eight losses in ten away games this season and has lost each of the previous five.

After starting the season with 14 defeats in 16 matches, Greuther Furth has improved recently – losing just once in five outings. I can see Stefan Leitl’s side holding a Hertha team that has won just two of its ten away clashes this term.

I’m backing Borussia Monchengladbach to come out on top when Augsburg comes to town. The Foals have more than enough quality to overcome the relegation strugglers.

Hoffenheim SHOULD beat Arminia Bielefeld. However, Hoffenheim is currently enduring a three-game losing streak. With Arminia enjoying a six-game unbeaten run, I can see this clash ending in a draw.

Best Bundesliga Bets for Round 22

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Wolfsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt to Win2.10
Bayer Leverkusen vs. Stuttgart – Bayer Leverkusen to Win1.50
Union Berlin vs. Borussia Dortmund – Over 3.5 Goals2.55
Hoffenheim vs. Arminia Bielefeld – Under 2.5 Goals2.25

The Wolves are in a mess right now. They have lost seven of their last nine Bundesliga games, including each of their previous four away outings. That’s why I’m backing Eintracht to claim all three points on Saturday.

Across to past five rounds, Stuttgart has picked up just a single point. By contrast, Leverkusen has claimed ten. With that in mind, odds of 1.50 for Bayer to win are pretty generous.

Five of Dortmund’s past six games have produced over 3.5 goals, meaning the clash with Union is destined to be a high-scoring encounter.

On the flip side, I expect Arminia’s trip to Hoffenheim to be a low-scoring affair. The visitors are among the lowest scorers in the German top flight, but they also boast one of the best defensive records.
