Bayern Munich has all but wrapped up this season's Bundesliga title but they will not be taking the pedal off the metal when they travel to face Wolfsburg today at 3:30pm EST.Bayern are 15 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund and have amassed more than double the points that their opponent in Wolfsburg have generated so far this season.
The only stat anybody needs to know for this game is that Bayern have only allowed one goal in 10 away matches. That is absolutely unheard of in such a high quality league. Naturally the Bavarian side have a winning record going unbeaten with a 9-0-1 record while away from the Allianz Arena.
Though our new partner at William Hill have them at a low 1.40 for the outright win you can up that a little bit to 1.91 should Bayern lead at halftime and also win the game in the halftime/fulltime result. I like that bet. Why? Besides Bayern's sheer dominance on the road and ridiculously amazing defensive prowess, they have also amassed a staggering 25 road goals and an even more jaw-dropping +48 goal difference in all league matches.
Those numbers simply tell a clear tale and as a result, take a look at the Bayern -1 in the handicap market with a payout of 2.05 and a bet I really like is for Bayern to score in both halves at 2.15.
The concerns I have are that Bayern may feel that the title is already secure and that they will now focus their attention to Champions League second round match against Arsenal on Tuesday. I expect a few starters to sit out for this match including Javi Martinez who is injured. Coming in though will be Bastian Schweinsteiger who makes his return to the Bayern midfield.
Mario Gomez is not expected to start and will be replaced up front with Ribery but Mario Mandzukic will be back to face his old club. He has declared that it will be a special night for him so maybe looking at him to score first at 3.50 or to score a pair at the same rate could prove to be of value. The Croatian international already has 14 goals this year.
