Let’s analyze the most anticipated matches of the round and find the best value bets.

<p>Everyone is expecting current leaders Dortmund to win the title, but we still have 14 matches to go till the end of the season. Gladbach moved above Bayern on goal difference with an impressive 2-0 away victory over Schalke.</p><p> </p><h2>Dortmund vs Hoffenheim</h2><p>Despite dominating the match and creating many scoring opportunities, Dortmund failed to beat Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend sharing points after the 1-1 draw. They were unable to extend their lead to 9 points following Bayern’s 3-1 away defeat to Leverkusen. With 3 wins in their last 3 matches, Gladbach closed the gap on the leaders being equal on points with the reigning champs Bayern. At home Dortmund are unbeaten this season winning 9 of their 10 games in front of their fans and scoring 34 goals in the process (3.4 goals per match). We’ve seen both teams scoring in their last 9 head-to-heads against Hoffenheim and we expect another thrilling match with both teams contributing on the scoreboard. Dortmund won their last 5 Bundesliga home games against Hoffenheim. Given their brilliant home record, the quality of the squad and huge attacking firepower on Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund should have the necessary weapons to win this match. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Dortmund to win and both teams to score at 2.5 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Book">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>RB Leipzig vs Eintracht Frankfurt</h2><p>With 2 wins in their previous 2 matches, RB Leipzig managed to secure their 4th spot in the standings extending the difference between them and their follower Eintracht Frankfurt. In case they win their clash against Eintracht they will put a bigger gap and almost be sure about a top 4 finish and a Champions League spot. On the other side Eintracht did well to hold leaders Dortmund to a 1-1 draw with their striker Luka Jovic scoring the equalizer and adding 1 more goal to his season tally. He’s leading the Bundesliga top-scorers chart with 14 goals scored in 20 round and the biggest European clubs are battling to transfer him next summer. RB Leipzig have a good defense at home conceding just 7 goals in 10 home games, but Eintracht are scoring goals for fun (17 away goals) and we expect them to find the back of the net at least 1 time. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.91 with various sportsbooks.</p><p> </p><h2>Bayern Munich vs Schalke</h2><p>This is the worst periods in recent years for Bayern Munich. Not only they have a new manager, but they are already thinking to sack him due to bad results and bad management of the squad. They already lost 4 matches this season and they are 7 points behind leaders Dortmund. They failed to maintain the 1 goal lead last round losing 3-1 away to Leverkusen. They should find their great form in time for the Champions League double-leg against Liverpool or else they will remain trophyless this term. On the other side, Schalke saw their 3-match unbeaten streak come to an end last weekend losing 2-0 home to Gladbach. They enter this match trying to bounce back but it will be very difficult against a wounded Bayern. We expect a high-scoring affair with Bayern entering this match all guns blazing and with Schalke trying to score on the break. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Over 3.5 goals in the match at 2.0 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Book">Bet365</a>.</p>
