What better league to bet on the ‘Anytime Goalscorer’ market than the Bundesliga?
Germany’s top flight has held the highest goals per game average among Europe’s elite in 27 of the last 28 seasons, after all.
And with as many as 23 players over the ten goal mark, there are plenty of familiar (and some less familiar) names popping up on the scoresheets each week.
With that in mind, let’s take a more detailed look at a few of the players worth keeping an eye on for some Bundesliga ‘Anytime Goalscorer’ tips this weekend.
Serge Gnabry (BAYERN MUNICH vs Eintracht Frankfurt) – 13/10
Bayern Munich’s goals still largely come from one source, Polish international Robert Lewandowski, but the fact that they’ve been scoring so many since refinding their Bundesliga form means that there have been plenty of them to go around – and who wants to back Lewandowski to score at a price as short as 1/4?! Serge Gnabry is one such beneficiary.
After successful season’s at Bremen and Hoffenheim, Gnabry is now in his breakthrough season at Bayern Munich, seemingly in favour with coach Niko Kovac. He has scored a goal in five of his last nine Bundesliga outings, which includes two in his last four games at the Allianz Arena, and looks to continue that run against a Frankfurt side that conceded SIX on their last league away day.
Kai Havertz (Hertha Berlin vs BAYER LEVERKUSEN) – 5/4
19-year-old German international Kai Havertz is one to watch for the future. Tipped to be the next Michael Ballack or Toni Kroos, both former Bayer Leverkusen players, the attacking-midfielder has been thriving in more of a number 10 style role under boss Peter Bosz, who took over at the club just before Christmas. Bosz’s tactics play to his strengths.
Havertz has scored 16 goals in 33 Bundesliga outings this season – the highest scoring player at the club – and, notably, twelve of these have come since their new boss was handed the reigns. His ability to run into the space created by Leverkusen’s quick attackers should cause a struggling Hertha defence some problems on Saturday. He’s also their designated penalty taker.
Mario Gotze (Borussia Monchengladbach vs BORUSSIA DORTMUND) – 6/5
Germany’s 2014 World Cup hero should continue to be the focal point of Favre’s attack even with captain Marco Reus returning from suspension on Saturday, making him look a good price to score against Borussia Monchengladbach. Gotze is in good form with three goals in his last four outings, one of which came in the 3-2 win over Dusseldorf last weekend.
Favre has been utilising him in the number 10 role behind Paco Alcacer in Reus’ absence, but may start him as a lone forward as he did in the games against Schalke and Freiburg – both of which Reus featured in, and both of which Gotze scored in. Either way, he should fancy his chances against a Gladbach defense that has conceded two goals or more in five of their last seven at home.
Wout Weghorst (WOLFSBURG vs Augsburg) – 5/6
Dutch giant Wout Weghorst, standing at just under two meters tall, is looking to cement himself as one of the signings of the season as the 18/19 campaign draws to a close. He has failed to find the back of the net in each of his last two outings but can still play with his head held high having tallied five goals across his last eight Bundesliga matches.
Weghorst’s 14 goal total for the season surpasses Wolfsburg’s 17/18 top scorer Daniel Didavi (9) by a good chunk – a target he will no doubt have wanted to reach – and the talented forward looks to build on that against an Augsburg side who have conceded four goals in two of their last three in the Bundesliga. He’s another player who is also on pens.
Andrej Kramaric (Mainz 05 vs TSG HOFFENHEIM) – 4/5
Croatian international Andrej Kramaric joined Hoffenheim from Leicester midway through the 15/16 season – the same year the Foxes won the Premier League title – and has gone on to score a club record 49 goals in 112 appearances. He’s a goalscorer known for his dangerous movement and, importantly for anytime goalscorer bets, is yet again another penalty taker.
Kramaric is on a career-best 16 league goals for the season, which includes six in his last nine outings, and he faces a hit-and-miss Mainz side that have nothing to play for going into the Bundesliga final day. With Hoffenheim still chasing a top-six finish, you can expect them, and him, to go all out for the win on Saturday.
