Odds, picks & predictions

Bayern Munich: -260
Draw: +370
Union Berlin: +600

Moneyline pick: Draw +370

There is growing hope in the Bundesliga that perhaps a team not named Bayern Munich will win the league for the first time in 11 seasons. While Bayern are still the best of the league, having scored 18 more goals than any other team, six teams are within five points of first place and there is currently a three-way tie atop the standings.

Union Berlin are one of those teams tied atop the standings and they’ve gotten there through great defensive play, allowing just 24 goals against in 21 games. Expect Union Berlin to try to establish a slower pace and take a conservative approach in this match. Even though they’re on the road, the value here is on the draw given the slower pace Union Berlin are likely to try to force Bayern to play.
