1.Bundesliga Season 2023/24 – Matchday 8 Betting Tips and Prediction

1.Bundesliga Season 202324 – Matchday 8 Betting Tips and Prediction

Following a short interval due to the international break, the 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign is set to resume with Matchday 8 coming up later this weekend. As always, we are here with the best weekly Bundesliga betting tips for every fixture from this round.

The top 4 positions of the Bundesliga standings have remained unchanged during the interval with each team taking all the points on offer in Matchday 7. Therefore, Bayer Leverkusen remained in pole position as it continued its excellent start with a derby victory to move up to 19 points. High flying Stuttgart stays just a point behind in 2nd position after notching another impressive result for its 6th win of the campaign.

Meanwhile, defending champions Bayern München returned to winning ways to remain 2 points off the top in 3rd position. Last season’s runners up Borussia Dortmund is tied on points with its arch rival but an inferior goal difference places it in 4th position. Hoffenheim also notched an important victory that allowed it climb up to 5th spot in table as Leipzig stumbled to a goalless draw which dropped it down to 6th place in the current standings.

The scenery has not changed much at the lower end of the table either with the same teams occupying the relegation zone. However, it is now Köln that lies at the very bottom in 18th position with only 1 point to its name after falling to its 4th successive defeat. Mainz, on the other hand, ended a 4 game losing streak to move up to 17th place with Bochum staying 2 points further ahead in 16th position.

BVB 09 Borussia Dortmund v SV Werder Bremen

Date: 20th October 2023
Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund
Time: 19:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Dortmund: 1.36
Draw: 5.66
Bremen: 7.00

After making a sluggish start to the season, Borussia Dortmund has been on a hot run of form in the Bundesliga over the past month. It picked up a 4-2 home win against Union Berlin on Matchday 7 to stay 2 points behind the league leaders in 4th position.

Werder Bremen gave a gutsy display on Matchday 7 but still slipped to a 2-3 loss against Hoffenheim after a frantic end to the match. The defeat has pushed Bremen a couple of spots down the table and it lies just 2 points above the drop zone in 16th position.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Total Goals: Over 2.5 at 1.85

Borussia Dortmund is averaging 2 goals per game at the moment and it has scored at least 3 times in 3 of the last 4 matches. However, it has picked up just 2 clean sheets this season and it has allowed the opposition to score 2 goals in nearly half of its games.

Werder Bremen has one of the worst defensive records in the Bundesliga having conceded 17 times in the 7 matches. However, it is enjoying a good spell in front of goal after scoring at least 2 goals in each of its previous 5 league matches.

Highest Scoring Half: 2nd Half at 1.86

So far, Borussia Dortmund has scored 8 goals in the 4 league fixtures at Signal Iduna Park this season, out of which 5 have been registered in the 2nd half. Moreover, half of the 4 goals it has conceded at home have also been recorded in the latter period.

Meanwhile, Werder Bremen has scored 12 goals till now in the 2023/24 campaign and 9 of those have been recorded in the 2nd half. At the same time, more than half of the goals that it has conceded thus far have also been in the last 45 minutes.

1.FC Union Berlin v VfB Stuttgart 1893

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: Stadion An Der Alten Försterei, Berlin
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Berlin: 2.57
Draw: 3.50
Stuttgart: 2.66

The misery continues for Union Berlin as it went down to a 4-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund last week despite having the lead at the halftime interval. As a result, Union is currently just 2 points above the relegation zone in 13th position.

Meanwhile, Stuttgart is surging at the other end of the standings as it remains just a point behind the leaders in 2nd position of the Bundesliga table. Stuttgart pulled off a 3-1 home win over Wolfsburg on Matchday 7 despite trailing at the halftime break.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Which Teams to Score: Both Teams at 1.60

Union Berlin may have had the joint best defensive record in the Bundesliga last season but it has not managed to keep a single clean sheet in the current campaign. It has scored 11 goals till now and should open its account after failing to score in the last 2 home games.

Stuttgart has conceded 6 times in the 3 away matches this season despite getting a clean sheet in the previous away fixture. It has scored in every league match thus far with 6 goals in its 3 away matches so it should definitely get on the score sheet in this one.

Draw No Bet: Stuttgart at 1.92

With a 7 match losing streak in all competitions, Union Berlin is certainly going through its toughest period since coming up to the top flight of German football. This includes defeats in each of the last 5 league fixtures including the last 2 home games.

Stuttgart, on the other hand, is enjoying its best form in years as it heads into this clash on the back of a 5 match winning streak. It has also managed to score at least 2 goals in all 5 matches while conceding just 3 goals during this run.

SC Freiburg v VfL Bochum 1848

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: Europa-Park Stadion, Freiburg
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Freiburg: 1.71
Draw: 4.00
Bochum: 4.75

Despite starting the season with consecutive victories, Freiburg has not been able to find any consistent form as yet. It fell to a 3-0 defeat at the home of the champions Bayern München on Matchday 7 which has dropped it down to 9th spot in the Bundesliga table.

Bochum still lies in the relegation zone being one of the 3 teams that are yet to pick up a league win this season. It stays in 16th position for the moment even though it returned home with a highly creditable 0-0 draw at Leipzig on Matchday 7.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Freiburg Total Goals: Over 1.5 at 1.66

Freiburg is not regarded as a prolific team and it has only managed to score 7 times in the 7 league matches this season. Nevertheless, it has got goals in the 3 games at Europa-Park Stadion so it should score at least a couple against a very leaky defence.

Bochum currently shares the worst defensive record in the Bundesliga with a couple of other teams but its struggles have mainly been on the road. It has conceded 14 times in the 4 away games this season despite getting a clean sheet in the last outing.

1st Half 1st Goal: Freiburg at 1.96

Although Freiburg has not been in particularly good form as an attacking unit, it has still managed to score 4 times at Europa-Park Stadion this season. Half of those goals were scored in the 1st half, while it has also earned 2 clean sheets from the 3 home games.

Bochum has conceded 14 goals in 4 away matches this season, with half of them being scored within the opening 45 minutes. Moreover, Bochum has not scored just 2 goals on the road till now and none of those were scored during regulation time of the 1st half.

VfL Wolfsburg v Bayer 04 Leverkusen

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Wolfsburg: 4.20
Draw: 4.00
Leverkusen: 1.78

The struggles on the road continued for Wolfsburg after it fell to its 3rd straight away defeat with a 1-3 loss at Stuttgart after taking the initial lead. Nevertheless, its excellent home form ensures that Wolfsburg stays in 7th position in the standings with 12 points.

At the same time, Bayer Leverkusen had racked up a 3-0 victory in the derby clash with Köln on Matchday 7 to keep its nose ahead at the top of the Bundesliga. It has simply been the best team in the division this season and it is dominating at both ends of the pitch.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Bayer Leverkusen Total Goals: Over 1.5 at 1.60

Wolfsburg has the best defensive record at home with 2 clean sheets in the 3 home games thus far and only 1 goal conceded. But all those games were against bottom half teams and does not seem enough to stop the best team in the division from scoring a couple of goals.

Bayer Leverkusen is the joint highest scoring team in the Bundesliga at the moment with an average of over 3 goals per game. Moreover, Leverkusen has scored at least 2 goals in every game this season and 3 goals in 6 of the 7 matches this season.

Last Goal: Leverkusen at 1.55

Thus far, Wolfsburg has let in just 9 goals in the 7 matches but 7 of those goals have been conceded in the 2nd half. On top of that, it has only scored 3 goals during the last 45 minutes even though it has scored the last goal of the game on 4 occasions.

Bayer Leverkusen has scored more than half of its 17 goals during the 2nd half and it has conceded just 3 times in the latter period. Moreover, it has managed to score at least 1 goal within the last 30 minutes of every league match this season.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim v Eintracht Frankfurt

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: PreZero Arena, Sinsheim
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Hoffenheim: 2.10
Draw: 3.60
Frankfurt: 3.40

Hoffenheim returned to winning ways on Matchday 7 after a defeat in the previous round with a 2-3 victory away at Werder Bremen. The win took Hoffenheim up to 15 points as it moved back up the table to reclaim 5th position in the Bundesliga standings.

After going more than a month without a league win, Eintracht Frankfurt finally ended its barren run with a comfortable 2-0 home win over newcomers Heidenheim. The result takes Frankfurt a couple of notches higher up the Bundesliga table on to 7th position.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Hoffenheim to Win Either Half: Yes at 1.55

Home form has been a bit erratic for Hoffenheim after picking up 2 losses from the first 3 fixtures at PreZero Arena this season. Still, it has 5 wins from its last 8 home games so it should come out unscathed from this clash against a team that is struggling on the road.

On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt will head into this contest on the back of a 14 game winless run away from home in the Bundesliga. This includes a series of 5 defeats from the previous 8 league matches on the road.

Total Goals: Over 2.5 at 1.71

Hoffenheim is among the top scoring teams in the Bundesliga this season with an average of over 2 goals per game. However, it has not done a particularly good job on the defensive end having conceded 6 goals in the 3 league matches at PreZero Arena.

Therefore, Eintracht Frankfurt should get on the score sheet during this match even though it has averaged less than a goal per game at the minute. And while it has the tightest defence in the division it has not kept a clean sheet on the road as yet.

SV Darmstadt 1898 v RB Leipzig

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: Merck-Arena, Darmstadt
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Darmstadt: 6.00
Draw: 5.00
Leipzig: 1.46

After securing its maiden win of the season in the previous weekend, Darmstadt followed it up with a 1-2 win at Augsburg on Matchday 7. Darmstadt was languishing in the bottom-3 a couple of weeks back but it is currently 3 points above the drop zone in 11th position.

Leipzig had a strong start to the season but all that momentum has gradually drifted away since the end of last month. The reigning DFB-Pokal champions were held to a 0-0 stalemate at home by Bochum on Matchday 7 which dropped them to 6th spot in the Bundesliga table.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Both Teams to Score: Yes at 1.60

Darmstadt jointly holds the worst defensive record in the Bundesliga and it is yet to earn a clean sheet this season. But since drawing a blank in its opening game of the campaign, Darmstadt has managed to score a goal in each of the previous 6 league fixtures.

Leipzig should concede at least 1 goal in this game as it will certainly not take a cautious approach even though it leads the league with 4 clean sheets. Moreover, it still averages more than 2 goals per game despite failing to score in the previous match.

Highest Scoring Half: 2nd Half at 1.90

Darmstadt has let in 19 goals through its opening 7 fixtures of the campaign, of which 12 have been conceded during the 2nd half. However, it has also managed to score 4 goals during the last 45 minutes of its previous 2 league games.

Meanwhile, Leipzig has scored 16 times in the Bundesliga so far with 10 of those goals being scored during the latter period. On top of that, half of the 6 goals that it has conceded thus far have also been recorded in the 2nd half.

1.FSV Mainz 05 v FC Bayern München

Date: 21st October 2023
Venue: Mewa Arena, Mainz
Time: 17:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Mainz: 8.50
Draw: 6.50
Bayern: 1.28

Mainz still remains winless for the season but it was able to end a 4 game losing streak with a 2-2 draw at Borussia M’gladbach on Matchday 7. The point earned from the stalemate was enough to lift Mainz off the very bottom of the Bundesliga table to 17th position.

After stumbling on the road in the previous week, Bayern München bagged a fairly routine 3-0 home win over Freiburg on Matchday 7. The champions will have to be content with 3rd position for now, knowing that there is still a long, long way to go until the finish line.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Total Goals: Over 3.5 at 1.71

Mainz holds the joint worst defensive record in the Bundesliga and has conceded 7 times in its opening 3 home games. Nevertheless, Mainz has drawn a blank in just 2 games this season and it also has an enviable record against the champions on home turf.

Bayern München is the joint top scorer in the Bundesliga with an average of over 3 goals per game, out of which 8 were scored away from home. However, Bayern has not kept a clean sheet in its past 5 league matches at Mewa Arena while conceding 10 goals in the process.

Bayern No Bet: Draw at 1.66

After an encouraging display in the last match, Mainz may finally be ready to kick start its campaign in earnest after a terrible start to the season. Mainz has notched 3 straight league wins against the champions at Mewa Arena so it can certainly cause another upset here.

As things stand, Bayern München is the overwhelming favourite in this clash and it may well cruise to victory despite being the visiting team. Yet this should turn out to be a more absorbing contest although the home team is quite unlikely to take all the points.

1.FC Köln v Borussia VfL Mönchengladbach

Date: 22nd October 2023
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion, Köln
Time: 14:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Köln: 2.33
Draw: 3.66
M’gladbach: 2.90

The season is steadily going from bad to worse for Köln after a crushing 3-0 defeat at the home of its arch rivals Bayer Leverkusen on Matchday 7. Consequently, Köln has been pushed down to 18th spot in the Bundesliga table as it gears for another Westphalia derby.

Borussia M’gladbach has also made a slow start to the 2023/24 campaign although there has been some improvement in recent weeks. M’gladbach could only get a 2-2 draw at home with Mainz which keeps the club in 13th position for the time being.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Double Chance: Borussia M’gladbach at 1.58

Köln is definitely heading for a relegation fight having collected the fewest points as well as scoring the fewest goals. With 6 defeats in 7 matches so far, it looks completely devoid of confidence after extending its losing streak to 4 matches.

Borussia M’gladbach did not have a great start either but it has improved in recent weeks after collecting 4 points from its last 2 matches. Moreover, it is performing better on the road than at home and is unbeaten in through the opening 3 away games of the season.

Highest Scoring Half: 2nd Half at 1.94

Köln has conceded 14 times in the opening 7 matches of this Bundesliga campaign with 9 of those goals coming during the 2nd half. On top of that, half of the 4 goals that it has managed to score this season have also arrived during the latter period.

While it has netted most of its goals in the opening period, Borussia M’gladbach has also scored 5 goals during the 2nd half of its matches this season. Moreover, nearly half of the 16 goals that it has conceded till now have also been in the 2nd half.

1.FC Heidenheim 1846 v FC Augsburg

Date: 22nd October 2023
Venue: Voith-Arena, Heidenheim
Time: 16:30 UTC

Sportaza Football Betting Odds

Heidenheim: 2.37
Draw: 3.60
Augsburg: 2.90

Heidenheim did not suffer any major damage despite taking a 2-0 defeat away at Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 7. It still remains reasonably well clear of any serious danger with a 3 point advantage over the relegation zone in 10th position.

Meanwhile, Augsburg was handed a 1-2 home defeat by Darmstadt which puts it just 1 point above the drop zone in 15th spot. Thus, Enrico Maaßen became the first managerial casualty of 2023/24 and he was replaced by Denmark’s Jess Thorup earlier this week.

Eagle Bet Featured Betting Tips

Draw No Bet: Heidenheim at 1.71

Heidenheim seems to have adjusted pretty well to the challenges to the Bundesliga after starting its journey with a couple of defeats. Since then, it has collected 7 points from its last 5 matches courtesy of successive victories in the previous 2 home games.

Meanwhile, Augsburg has only earned 1 league win thus far and it has suffered 3 defeats in the previous 4 matches as well. Moreover, it currently has a 16 game winless run away from home in the Bundesliga and it has only managed to avoid defeat in 3 of those games.

Total Goals: Over 2.5 at 1.69

Despite its gutsy performances, Heidenheim still is a very mediocre side defensively and it averages more than 2 goals conceded per match. But it has scored 7 times in the 3 home games thus far, so it may score a couple of goals in this clash against another weak defence.

The new manager of Augsburg has to sort out the defensive issues first after conceding at least 2 goals in 6 of the 7 matches this season. However, Augsburg has also scored 10 times at the other end so it should be able to get on the score sheet in this encounter.
