Itâ€™s match week five in the Bundesliga and a buffet is set to be served. As many may know, I am extremely hot on Bayern. The German powerhouse has been thriving in the Bundesliga so far sitting in second place. Ever since gobbling up PSG in the Champions League final, Bayern have continued to munch up the competition with notable wins over rivals Dortmund (3-2) and Atletico Madrid (4-0). Still, after all this conquest, Bayern are Hungry for more.
Tomorrow, they are up against Eintracht Frankfurt who are currently fifth in the Bundesliga. This may seem impressive for the smaller club, but keep in mind that it is still early in the season. Bayern are still kings of Europe after winning the Champions League last season. I believe they will be on fire against Frankfurt, who lacks the talent to keep up with the much bigger Bayern. Bayernâ€™s last match is good supporting evidence of this claim with them putting four past one of the best keepers in the world, Oblak. With Lethal players like Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller on the field, its hard to imagine Bayern scoring less than three.
The Pick: Bayern Munich -2 (-115)
Bayern Munich -2 is a virtual lock in my opinion. And while I could look like a clown, I also could be getting easy value from a team that constantly puts up big wins. Neuer is still one of the best keepers in the world, and I expect a world class performance from him to hold Frankfurt scoreless. I expect Lewandowski will break through for a goal, and who knowsâ€¦ Maybe even two. In the end, I believe Bayern will walk away with a victory 3-0. As always, good luck! And fade me casually!
