Bundesliga 2021/22 Matchweek 5 betting picks & top odds

Best bets for Bundesliga MW5

Wolfsburg enters Bundesliga Matchweek 5 as the only team with a perfect 4-0-0 record, but how will the league leader fare against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday? We’ve got a pick in that match as well as plays in FC Koln vs RB Leipzig and VfB Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen in this weekend’s Bundesliga soccer betting preview.

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig

Last season, FC Koln (2-1-1) barely avoided relegation with an ugly 8-9-17 record. RB Leipzig (1-0-3) finished the 2020-21 season in second place on the Bundesliga table with a 19-8-7 record. Needless to say, not too many people were expecting Koln to have a respectable 2-1-1 record through the first four weeks of the 2021-22 season, or for Leipzig to have three outright losses, yet here we are.


Despite the current form of these two clubs, RB Leipzig is still being listed as a convincing -130 favorite on the road against Koln this Saturday. Sure, Leipzig is the better team on paper. But considering FC Koln played RB Leipzig tough last season with a 1-1-0 record and is playing much better football early this season, we’ve got to take a shot on them as big home underdogs this weekend. More conservative bettors should consider a bet against the spread to include the draw.

FC Koln to win


VfB Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen

VfB Stuttgart (1-1-2) has scored eight goals and conceded nine this season for an average of 4.25 total goals per match. Bayer Leverkusen (2-1-1) has scored 12 goals this season and conceded six for an average of 4.5 goals per game.


When two teams that are happy to play a wide-open game clash with one another, it is safe to predict fireworks. The last time these two clubs played in February, Leverkusen came away with a 5-2 win at home. Will Leverkusen win again, or will the change in venue give Stuttgart enough momentum to pull off the upset at home? Either way, we expect this one to sail OVER three goals.

Over 3 total goals


Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Wolfsburg (4-0-0) has conceded only one goal during its 4-0-0 start to the 2021-22 season. The club has earned 1-0 wins over VfL Bochum and RB Leipzig, a 2-1 win over Hertha, and a 2-0 win over Greuther Furth.


It is going to be interesting to see how Wolfsburg’s stout defense holds up against some of Bundesliga’s more potent offensive teams like Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Bayer Leverkusen. We won’t find out this Sunday as Wolfsburg faces an Eintracht Frankfurt (0-3-1) side that has scored only four goals through its first four matches. Expect Wolfsburg to continue its season-opening surge with another shutdown victory this weekend.
