21/22 German Bundesliga 2 Matchday 18 Predictions


It is Matchday 18 in the 2.Bundesliga this weekend, the final round of fixtures for the calendar-year as the season reaches its midway-point and heads for almost a month-long winter-break. With 36 points from 17 games, St. Pauli presently holds a 4-point lead over Darmstadt at the top of the standings. Hamburg and Schalke lie 3-points further behind to comprise the top-4 with Jahn Regensburg and Paderborn in 5th and 6th positions respectively.

SV Holstein Kiel v FC St. Pauli

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Kiel: 2.85
Draw: 3.60
St. Pauli: 2.30

Holstein Kiel is currently 4-points above the drop-zone in 17th position with just 2 wins from the previous 9 fixtures. St. Pauli collected 10 points off its last 4 matches to head the 2.Bundesliga table halfway through the season.

Our Bundesliga 2 betting tips would suggest taking the 1.85 line on Over 1.5 Goals for the away-side. Holstein Kiel has the 3rd worst defensive-record in the league and has only managed to keep 1 clean-sheet this season. Meanwhile, St. Pauli averages more than 2 goals per game and has scored 12 times in its previous 6 away-games in 2.Bundesliga.

Favouring the away-side on the Draw No Bet market at odds of 1.72 is also a fair option. Despite being unbeaten in its last 4 home-games, Kiel has lost 2 of its previous 4 matches in 2.Bundesliga. St. Pauli has won 7 of its last 10 league-fixtures, including 3 of its last 6 away-games.

2.Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
Result & Total Goals: St. Pauli & Over 2.5 at 3.05 on Zodiac Bet
Half Time/Full Time: Draw/St. Pauli at 5.50 on Zodiac Bet
Holstein Kiel 1-2 St. Pauli at 8.00 on Zodiac Bet

SC Paderborn v FC Heidenheim

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Paderborn: 2.20
Draw: 3.40
Heidenheim: 2.95

Paderborn has gone through the last 4 league-matches without a victory which has dropped the club down to 6th position. Heidenheim are held on 8th spot after ending its 3-match winning-streak with a loss.

According to our 2.Bundesliga betting-team, the 2.00 offer on 2nd Half to be the Highest Scoring Half presents good value. Paderborn has scored 7 of its 11 away-goals in the latter period while also conceding at least once in 6 of its 9 league-matches on the road. Meanwhile Heidenheim has let in 11 goals in during the last 45 minutes of its 9 home-games this season.

The 1.60 line on Both Team to Score looks a decent pick on slightly shorter betting-odds. Despite having the 2nd best defence in the division Paderborn has not taken a clean-sheet at home as yet. Heidenheim is conceding almost 2 goals per game on the road with just 1 clean-sheet thus far.

2.Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
Result & Both Teams to Score: Draw & Yes at 4.10 on Zodiac Bet
Half Time/Full Time: Draw/Draw at 5.50 on Zodiac Bet
Paderborn 2-2 Heidenheim at 10.0 on Zodiac Bet

Hamburger SV v FC Schalke 04

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Hamburg: 2.00
Draw: 3.50
Schalke: 3.40

Hamburg picked up 10 points from its past 3 matches to move up to 3rd spot in the league-table. Schalke also bagged 2 wins from its past 3 fixtures to get back into the top-4 of the 2.Bundesliga.

Our 2.Bundesliga betting-experts consider the 1.90 offer on Over 1.5 Total Goals for the home-team to be the best bargain here. Hamburg has found its form at home after scoring 10 goals in its last 3 games at Volksparkstadion. Schalke has not kept a clean-sheet in its previous 6 matches while giving away almost 2 goals per game during that period.

Taking the 1.60 line on the home-team in the 1st Half Draw No Bet market is the safer choice. Hamburg has scored a goal during the first 45 minutes in 8 of its 9 home-games so far. In contrast, Schalke has managed to score just 3 times in the 1st half of its 9 away-matches this season.

2.Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
Score in Both Halves: Hamburg at 2.80 on Zodiac Bet
2nd Half Correct Score: Hamburg 1-1 Schalke at 6.60 on Zodiac Bet
Hamburg 2-1 Schalke at 7.50 on Zodiac Bet

SSV Jahn Regensburg v SV Darmstadt 98

Zodiac Bet Football Betting Odds
Regensburg: 2.85
Draw: 3.60
Darmstadt: 2.20

This is a pivotal fixture at the top-end of the 2.Bundesliga with two teams in contrasting form. Jahn Regensburg has suffered 4 defeats in the previous 5 matches while Darmstadt secured its 5th victory from the past 6 fixtures.

Over 3.5 Total Goals at 2.33; that is the betting-tip for the weekend from our 2.Bundesliga experts. Regensburg has scored at least 2 goals in every home-game but it has not managed a clean-sheet since the opening week of the campaign. Darmstadt has earned only 1 clean-sheet on the road till now but the club has scored 14 goals in its past 6 away-games in the league.

Picking the away-team for the 2nd Half Result seems another shrewd choice for this encounter. Regensburg has conceded 9 goals during the latter period in its previous 5 league-games. On the other hand, Darmstadt has scored 13 times during the 2nd half in its previous 9 matches in 2.Bundesliga.

2.Bundesliga Extra Betting Tips
1st Half Correct Score: Regensburg 0-1 Darmstadt at 4.60 on Zodiac Bet
Win Both Halves: Darmstadt at 7.20 on Zodiac Bet
Jahn Regensburg 1-3 Darmstadt at 14.0 on Zodiac Bet
