Another weekend of Bundesliga, Germany's top-flight soccer league, is in the books. While fans are not involved at the stadiums across the country, the Bundesliga is showing the rest of the world how it's done during these pandemic times.

 It was another weekend of domination from the visitors, with the homefield advantage no longer a factor with teams playing in front of no fans due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. Home sides ended up just 2-5-2, with Hertha Berlin winning Friday by a 4-0 count against FC Union Berlin, and first-place Bayern Munich rolling to a 5-2 victory and three points in the table against Eintracht Frankfurt at Allianz Arena.

For bettors keeping track, road teams are 10-3 overall with five draws in two weekends since returning while total players saw the ‘over’ go 6-3, with overs 11-6-1 in the past two matchdays.

Matchday 28 begins on Tuesday with four matches, including the titanic battle between the top two clubs in the table. We're attacking the books with our top Bundesliga Picks for the big matchup.

Bundesliga Betting Odds
Dortmund (+260)
Munich (-115)
Draw (+310)


Borussia Dortmund plays host to FC Bayern Munich at Signal-Iduna Park Tuesday in front of no fans. The battle features the top two clubs in the Bundesliga table. Dortmund enters 17-4-6 with 74 goals scored and 33 allowed for a plus-41 goal differential, No. 2 in the Bundesliga. Munich has been in a league of their own, posting a 19-4-4 record, 80 goals and 28 allowed, good for 61 points and a plus-52 goal differential, easily the best in the league. If anyone can slow down Munich it might be Dort.

Erling Haaland has posted 10 goals in 10 matches for Borussia. They have posted at least two goals in 28 of the past 30 Bundesliga home matches, so Bayern will have its work cut out for them. Dortmund has also won six straight matches, while winning at both half time and full time in each of the past five home matches. In addition, Dortmund has kept a clean sheet, or posted a shutout, in each of their past four at home, a streak which is sure to be tested early and often by the high-flying Munich side.

Bayern has won by at least two goals in 11 of their past 13 Bundesliga matches, as they have been on absolute fire. In addition, they have found the back of the net at least twice in nine of their past 10 against Dortmund across all competitions. 

Bundesliga - Tuesday's Money-Line Pick

Bayern Munich (-115)

There is just no reason to pick against Munich, even if Dortmund has won six in a row while boasting the best home mark in the Bundesliga. Munich is just on a roll, and the fact the mighty yellow are at home will be inconsequential, as fans and any advantage have gone out the window in the first two matchdays back. Add in the fact Bayern goal machine Robert Lewandowski will be looking to rain down on his former team, and Mats Hummel is doubtful to play for Borussia, and all signs point to Munich with the win.

Another bonus play is going with the Double Chance bet, with the Result and Both to Score. Take Bayern Munich (+180) to win, with both clubs finding the back of the net at least once.

Bundesliga - Tuesday's Over-Under Pick

Over 3.5 goals (-102)

It's a coin flip on the over and under, but the way Bayern has been finding the back of the net, you have to keep thumping the over until further notice. They have at least two goals in nine of their past 10 tries aganst Borussia, and they have hit Over 2.5 goals in eight of their past nine home matches.
