The Bundesliga will be the first of Europe’s five major leagues to resume play amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, giving many sports fans a much-anticipated injection of competitive action.
Six fixtures are slated for Saturday (May 16), which includes a Revierderby clash between rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, with the former hoping to climb within one point of leaders Bayern Munich if they win.
Die Roten sit four points clear as things stand and won’t resume their 2019-20 campaign until Sunday, when they should ease to a routine win over Union Berlin despite being on the road.
American sports gamblers will once again put their predictive powers to the test as soccer returns to the mainstream schedule, and NJ sportsbooks, such as and bet365 have a range of prop bets featuring odds that will appeal to New Jersey-based bettors. US Bookies also offer free bets Bundesliga soccer promotions and bonuses on the first deposit.
Bundesliga Prop Bets
One scorer treble offers +800 (9.00) on Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland (both Dortmund) and Timo Werner (Leipzig) each to net in Week 26. Werner (21 goals) and Sancho (14 goals) are each in the top three Bundesliga scorers this season while Haaland has been in prolific form since he joined Dortmund in January, not to mention both of their teams boast home advantage this weekend.
Alternatively, one can back Dortmund, Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach to beat Schalke, Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt, respectively, at collective odds of +600 (7.00).
All Bundesliga matches 2020 will take place behind closed doors, and the lack of an audience could make for some open encounters at both ends of the field. Five of Saturday’s six games kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET, and NJ residents can also bet on both teams to score in each of those games at +1600 (17.00), which looks more realistic than the odds suggest.
is also offering customers in New Jersey an attractive odds-boosted price of +400 (5.00) on Leipzig, Dortmund and Hoffenheim each to win in their return to action, which we predict will land for the trio of hosts.
