League: Bundesliga (Germany)
Matchup: Eintracht Frankfurt at Bayern Munich
Date / Time: Saturday, May 18 - 9:30 a.m. ET
Best Bet: Bayern Munich -2.5 (+140), Bayern Munich -1.5 (-180)
Bayern will be looking to lock up the Bundesliga title at home in the final Matchday of the season and I’m expecting no drama. The club has gone 12-3-1 at home and nine of the wins have come by two-plus goals. Bayern won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Frankfurt in December and it also blasted them 5-0 in a Super Cup match in the same month. They’ve allowed 12 goals in their last four road games in all competitions, more coming on Saturday. -CD
League: Bundesliga (Germany)
Matchup: Bayer 04 Leverkusen at Hertha Berlina
Date / Time: Saturday, May 18 - 9:30 a.m. ET
Best Bet: Over 3.5 (-140), Over 4.5 (+165)
Leverkusen has been a great ‘over’ wager all season, going 17-13-3 to the high side and that includes a 9-3-3 mark away from home. When the pair played in late December, Leverkusen captured a 3-1 win at home. The ‘over’ is on an 8-2 run in the last 10 meetings between the pair and the last two games played in Berlin saw a combined 11 goals scored. With noting to gain for Berlin, I expect the home ‘dog to take chances and that will open up the pitch for the visitor. -CD
FA Cup
League: FA Cup (England)
Matchup: Watford vs. Manchester City
Date / Time: Saturday, May 18 - 12:00 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Manchester City -0.5 (-170), Over 2.5 (+100) Manchester City Goals
Manchester City locked up the Premier League and League Cup this season and will look to be the first team to complete the domestic treble on Sunday. I’m buying the Citizens in a big way, even though the FA Cup hasn’t been known for wild affairs. The Hornets are outclassed here, and they enter in terrible form too (0-3). City beat them twice (2-1, 3-1) in league play this season and those results were less damaging then the previous four wins in this series. (15-1 margin). I expect City to put on a show this Saturday. -CD
La Liga
League: La Liga (Spain)
Matchup: Rayo Vallecano at Celta De Vigo
Date / Time: Saturday, May 18 - 2:45 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Over 3.5 (+105), Both Teams to Score – Yes (-170)
Rayo will be dropped from La Liga after this match but I believe it will go out with a bang and try to create opportunities on the road. Unfortunately for the club, the defense will get exposed. They’ve allowed two-plus goals in eight straight road games and three-plus in five of those. Celta De Vigo avoided relegation this season, so a looser style in the home finale is expected. Rayo won the reverse fixture 4-2 in January and revenge will be had here. -CD
