Bundesliga 2021/22 Matchweek 15 preview & best bets

Bundesliga MW15 betting tips

Fresh off of a win in Der Klassiker, first-placed Bayern Munich will look to keep rolling when they take on Mainz this Saturday in Matchweek 15 of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season. That matchup along with a top-five showdown between SC Freiburg and Hoffenheim and Sunday’s Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen game are covered in this weekend’s Bundesliga soccer betting picks.

Bayern Munich vs Mainz

Bayern Munich (11-1-2) extended its lead atop the Bundesliga table to four points with a 3-2 road win over Borussia Dortmund last Saturday. Now Bayern must avoid a letdown performance at home against Mainz. Mainz (6-3-5) defeated VfL Wolfsburg 3-0 at home last Friday and has gone a respectable 3-2-1 over its last six games since losing each of its previous three games prior to this run.

Bayern is a massive favorite of -450 on the moneyline and -2 goals against the spread. While it is always scary to bet against a club as strong as Bayern Munich, we are going to take our chances on Mainz at +2 goals. Mainz has not lost a game this season by more than two goals (including road losses to Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund) and Bayern Munich could be drained after the win over rival Dortmund and a midweek win over Barcelona. Look for Bayern to win by just one goal here, or to push with a two-goal win.

Mainz +2


SC Freiburg vs Hoffenheim

SC Freiburg (7-4-3) snapped out of its recent three-game losing streak in dramatic fashion on Sunday, crushing Borussia Monchengladbach 6-0 on the road. The red-hot Hoffenheim (7-2-5) offense has scored 11 goals over the club’s last three matches, most recently beating Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 at home on Saturday. Both Freiburg and Hoffenheim carry plenty of momentum into this Saturday’s contest.


If this match were being played on Hoffenheim’s home turf at the PreZero Arena, we’d probably be going with them. But Hoffenheim is just 1-1-4 over its last four road matches with the only win over that stretch coming against lowly Greuther Furth. SC Freiburg should get the job done at home in this one to improve on its 3-2-1 home record in 2021/22.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen (8-3-3) closed to within three points of Borussia Dortmund for second place in the Bundesliga as Dortmund lost and Leverkusen extended its win streak to three matches with a 7-1 blowout over Greuther Furth on Saturday. Eintracht Frankfurt (4-6-4) had its own three-match win streak snapped on Saturday in its 3-2 loss to Hoffenheim.

Frankfurt has pulled off some impressive upsets this season, including a 2-0 road win over SC Freiburg and a 2-1 stunner on the road against Bayern Munich back in October, so an upset this Sunday over Leverkusen certainly isn’t out of the question. Still, we can’t pass on Bayer Leverkusen getting better than even-money odds; the club is in strong form right now with three straight wins and is undefeated on the road this season at 4-3-0.
