Wolfsburg vs Mainz from this week’s Bundesliga is that one match that could mean that the bookmakers were wrong, and that’s the reason why we decided to bet on it with odds from bet365. The match is scheduled for this Saturday, and the bookies are tipping Wolfsburg as the overall favorite to win.
This Wolfsburg side lost their first two Bundesliga matches from this season, one of which was at home against the 10th placed Hannover 96. Next came the defeat to Stuttgart with a lot less goals scored, but it was a 2-12 defeat nonetheless. Both teams have the same number of points on the table, and the only thing that separates them is the goal difference, which Mainz is sporting it negative.
Why Mainz are the underdogs with all the bookmakers, we’ll never know, but maybe this is their opportunity to capitalize on those three points nobody looks like backing them up with. Apart from the fact that Mainz has managed to keep themselves unbeaten in front of Wolfsburg since 2011, it is worth noting that a potential Mainz win would send the visitors straight for the Europa league places.
Betting wise, the odds for this match are really high, regardless of which market you would go for. Those who tip Wolfsburg to bounce back in this match give it odds of 1.75, while a Mainz win is tipped at 4.20, and even the draw goes into the same improbable category. We have chosen the number of goals for the match to be odd, and we’ll go with 8 to 9 units on it to happen with 1.95 odds from bet365.
