Bayern Munich sit atop the standings, showing everyone that the switch from Pep Guardiola to Carlo Ancelotti is going to have very little effect on them dominating the league this season.</p><p>Unfortunately backing the Bundesliga leaders isn’t really an option because of the very low odds but there are a few value bets on the books this week and I’m going to take you through 3 of my favourites.</p><p>Going from the top of the table to a team that finished very close to the bottom last season. Eintracht Frankfurt only narrowly avoided relegation last season and they’ve not been great this season so you can expect another season of toil from them. They’re playing Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday and I’m very happy with the odds available for the away side here. You could argue that their match in the Champions League will have left them a little tired but they’re a good side with plenty of experience in the team. They should have enough to win this game really and I’d be disappointed if they didn’t.</p><p>The odds have been slowly moving out on the away win which is good for us. I got on at 1.93 but it’s now available at 1.95 with BetVictor and better odds are available elsewhere if you shop around.</p><p>Hamburg are another side that haven’t covered themselves in glory over the last few seasons. They managed to finish mid-table last season but they were in the relegation play-off in the 2 seasons before that and I still have some major concerns about the resilience of this side. This weekend they’re coming up against the “most hated side in German football” in the shape of RB Leipzig.</p><p>They may be hated but Leipzig have spent a decent amount of money putting together a youthful squad full of potential. Oliver Burke was the latest recruit from Nottingham Forest and he’s already started to justify his price tag with the assist that led to the defeat of Borussia Dortmund last week (making me hate them just a little bit more).</p><p>At 2.75 with a number of bookies (BetVictor, <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4810&amp;book=Bet365">bet365</a>, <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4824&amp;book=Ladbrokes">Ladbrokes</a> and others) I think there is plenty of value backing the away side in this one. If they do win out, maybe I’ll hate them a little less. Maybe.</p><p>My final bet for this Bundesliga weekend is on Sunday. Augsburg welcome Mainz to the aptly named Augsburg Arena and the head to head results certainly indicate it could be a happy trip for the away side. Mainz will be playing in the Europa League on Thursday and that can have an effect on sides but at odds of 3.13 with <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4835&amp;book=Betvictor">BetVictor</a>, I’m happy to take that risk.</p><p>Those are my 3 bets for the Bundesliga this weekend, good luck with yours.</p>
