PADERBORN, Germany - As Round 29 of German Bundesliga finishes off on Sunday, soccer bettors are given a morning game as well as an early afternoon game.
For the noon EST kick off, Paderborn will face off against Dortmund, in what may be an uneventful, spectator-less match.
Still, soccer bettors can get in on the action, as the betting lines for Paderborn and Dortmund expand with the prop bets available.
Betting On Paderborn Vs. Dortmund
With only one win in nine home fixtures against Bundesliga opponents, betting on Paderborn on the moneyline (+800) doesn't seem like the best decision. However, as the odds are this high, a small risk on a Dortmund blunder could work to some bettors' advantages.
Dortmund comes in with -325 to win the match (with a draw being a +450) on the three-way moneyline.
Bettors that want to find better odds here may consider taking a prop bet on the time of the first goal.
While the bet indicates that either team can score first, it is likely that Dortmund will be the team to score first (-400), as heavily indicated by the online sportsbooks.
Time of First Goal
- 0:00 - 9:59 (+225)
- 10:00 - 19:59 (+300)
- 20:00 - 29:59 (+400)
Bundesliga bettors should note that Paderborn has allowed an opening goal at home within 30 minutes in six of their last seven games. With this, taking all three of these options creates an excellent arbitrage betting scenario, where bettors can earn a quarter of a unit, one full unit, or two full units in profit, respectively.
Being on the road in league matches has come easy for Dortmund as well.
Since the springtime of 2019, Dortmund has won 70% of their games on the road by two or more goals.
While it would be considered a push, taking an alternate line on Dortmund -2 (+160) comes with underdog odds.
However, don't expect Paderborn to fold over to Dortmund. Even with no fans at home, the Black and Yellows have the ability to play solid soccer.
If they can keep a clean sheet (+900) - or at least in the first half - live betting on Paderborn would come with excellent payouts.
In their last five matches, Paderborn has lost the second half only one time. With three draws over this span, look for Paderborn to get in the groove late and keep with Dortmund until the end.
For those who are lacking confidence in the home team, bettors can also entertain the idea of taking Dortmund to lead at halftime and fulltime (-130).
Either way a bettor is leaning, German Bundesliga is back and the soccer betting opportunities are only picking back up.
