A great football derby will be held in Gelsenkirchen this Sunday; however, Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips suggest a one-sided encounter.
After Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund are the second best football club according to all latest gambling news. They have been showing a series of great performances throughout this season; however, they had a tough challenge on Thursday in the Europa League. The third place is far away and if we are honest, we must admit the fact that they don’t really have a chance of being champions. Bayern Munich are not likely to give away their 5-point advantage just 6 games before the end.
If Dortmund players feel that, and they must feel that, considering the outcomes of the last few Bundesliga seasons, their attitude towards the game could drop significantly. Should that happen, with a little bit of concentration and a lot of fighting, the home side would stand a chance despite the fact that they are underdogs according to all Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips.
The Gelsenkirchen-based side has been highly under-performing during this season. They are standing in the 7th spot of the table, which means that their chance to participate in a continental tournament is at stake. By defeating their rival, they could already be in the 4th place with a bit of luck. That’s what they will be hoping to achieve by Sunday evening and that’s what they will be fighting for.
In addition, as German football enthusiasts must know, Gelsenkirchen and Dortmund are two cities pretty close to each other, which means there is a strong rivalry between Dortmund and Schalke. Should Dortmund players think this game is not too important, even if they do so only for a second, Huntelaar and his mates will strike back immediately. Not to mention the dreadful environment that will be created by the fanatic supporters of Die Königsblauen.
Sports scores news indicate that the home side will stand no chance against BVB. The odds for Thomas Tuchel’s men collecting the 3 points are at 1.73 (73/100) at Bet365 Sportsbook while those for Schalke’s triumph are at 4.50 (7/2). A tie would pay 4.00 (3/1) times the stake to online bettors.
As we can see, Schalke vs Dortmund betting tips suggest that wagering against Tuschel’s men equals throwing money out of your window. However, gambling predictions do not really matter at football derbies. It’s all decided on the field. We will see on Sunday afternoon which side will take the game more seriously, and which side will be able to collect the 3 points.
