Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions and Betting Tips: Bundesliga Preview

Mainz betting tips

Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen predictions and betting tips for this Friday night Bundesliga fixture on February 8th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.

Bayer Leverkusen are in seventh, their highest position of the season and Peter Bosz appears to be ironing out some of the inconsistencies which hindered their progress during the first half of the campaign. Having said that, they were defeated in the DFB Pokal in midweek and they’ll be hoping to bounce back immediately here. Mainz were easily swept aside by Augsburg last weekend but they’ve been stronger at home recently and they should be able to make a decent contest of this.

Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

Leverkusen made the headlines last weekend when they ended Bayern’s seven match winning streak. A superb free-kick from Leon Bailey helped the Werkself to three points and they will be confident ahead of this tie with Mainz. They do have a Europa League double-header on the horizon and that could be on their minds here. They are odds-on to win this game but Mainz don’t lose many games on their own patch with only the top two taking maximum points home from the Opel Arena. True, they were far from convincing against Nurnberg during their recent-ish 2-1 win here but I think they can get something from this tie. They were well-beaten by Augsburg last weekend but they’re always stronger in front of their own fans. Leverkusen have beaten Schalke and Wolfsburg on their travels recently but neither of those two sides are as effective on their own patch as today’s opponents. This game could end all-square and make it draw number seven of the season for Mainz. It’s 16/5 to end all-square here and that’s the first of our Bundesliga betting tips for Friday evening.

 

Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Goals Betting Tips

Goals have been a feature of Leverkusen’s games recently and they tend to attack in numbers. 65% of their matches have seen Over 2.5% land this season whilst BTTS has landed in 60% of their matches. They’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last six Bundesliga matches and Mainz have netted in each of their last six home games. The last two fixtures at this venue have seen nine goals scored and this could follow suit. Over 2.5 Goals/Both Teams to Score has landed in four of Mainz’s last five home games and it looks a decent bet here at a shade of odds-on. It is the second of our Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen betting tips for this evening’s game.

 

Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Anytime Goalscorer Prediction

Leon Bailey scored his first goal since September 1st at the weekend but the 21-year could be rested for this tie. Kevin Volland is far more consistent and has netted three in the last five. He’s got nine for the season and seems to be enjoying playing under Peter Bosz. He’s been impressive and he’s a decent price to find the net once again. Five of his nine goals have also come away from home and he looks to be their biggest threat. Kevin Volland is the third of our Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen betting tips.

 

Mainz vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Betting Preview

Bayer Leverkusen are odds-on away from home and are available at 5/6 for this tie. They’ve been in good form but they look a bit short on the outright market. The draw is available at 3/1 and Mainz are 11/4 to bounce back from their disappointing defeat last weekend.

BTTS is very short and is available at 4/7. Over 2.5 Goals is expected in this one and it’s also priced at 4/7. The combination of the two is priced at 5/6.

Our selection, Kevin Volland is available at 11/2 to break the deadlock in this tie. He’s looking to get into double figures for the season. Kai Havertz is priced at 13/2 and is followed by Isaac Thelin, who is 11/2.
