The German Bundesliga season goes on this weekend with Matchday 9. The Red Bulls welcome the Blues at Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on Saturday, November 28 and I’m here to provide my RB Leipzig vs. Arminia Bielefeld betting pick.

RB Leipzig and Arminia have met each other only twice, and it was back in the 2015-16 season when these two clubs played in the 2. Bundesliga. The Red Bulls beat the Blues in Bielefeld, 1-0, while the clash in Leipzig was ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

RB Leipzig vs. Arminia Bielefeld Odds

RB Leipzig (-1.5) -160
Arminia (+1.5) +140
RB Leipzig to Win -475
Arminia to Win +1200
Draw +550
Over 3.5 +110
Under 3.5 -135

The Red Bulls are massive favorites to beat the Blues on Saturday, and the visitors sit at +333 odds to stay undefeated. The bookies are pretty sure Arminia will have a long day at Red Bull Arena, so they set the odds on both teams to score YES at +100.

The Blues are newcomers to the league. After earning four points in the first three rounds of the season, they’ve lost five straight games.

RB Leipzig vs. Arminia Bielefeld Preview

Arminia is riding a five-game losing streak following a 2-1 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in Matchday 8. During that awful span, the Blues have conceded 15 goals and scored only three in a return.

They met some heavyweight rivals including Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, but the Blues also suffered a heavy 5-0 loss at Union Berlin which was a huge disappointment.

Bielefeld is sitting at the 16th spot of the Bundesliga standings with just four points and a 5:17 goal difference. The Blues have lost three straight road contests while scoring just one goal in the process.

At least, the Blues don’t have any injury worries ahead of Sunday’s clash. On the other side, RB Leipzig cannot count on midfielder Konrad Laimer and center-back Lukas Klostermann.

The Red Bulls have been playing in a shaky form lately. They’ve won just one of their last three Bundesliga games along with a 1-0 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach and a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt in Matchday 8.

RB Leipzig is coming off a 1-0 loss at Paris SG in the UEFA Champions League this past Tuesday, but the Red Bulls have won six straight home games in all competitions. They have four wins out of four Bundesliga tilts at Red Bull Arena along with a terrific 12:2 goal difference.

The Red Bulls are currently sitting at the fourth spot of the Bundesliga table with 17 points and a 16:5 goal difference, two points behind the leader Bayern Munich.

RB Leipzig vs. Arminia Bielefeld Betting Pick

The Blues’ transition from the German second tier to Bundesliga hasn’t been smooth at all, and I expect the Red Bulls to pile up on their misery.

RB Leipzig has been unstoppable at home thus far. The Red Bulls will be fired up to make amends for a painful loss in the Champions League, so they should attack in numbers Saturday, looking to decide the winner as soon as possible.

The Blues struggled mightily against Leverkusen last weekend. None of their players have scored more than one goal so far, so I’m backing the hosts to win and cover a 1.5-goal spread. Four of RB Leipzig’s last six home wins came by two or more goals.

  • RB Leipzig (-1.5)
