Bet: Double Chance: Schalke Or Draw

On Saturday we are going to see first in the season Ruhr derby clash between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke. BVB in October shows a disappointing performance gaining only two points in three games 1. Bundesliga. It wasn’t expected by sports betting experts but Schwarzgelben had fallen on the sixth place in standings. Moreover Thomas Tuchel’s side in Round 2 of DFB-Pokal overcame Union Berlin only on penalties drawing in main and extra time. So choosing bets you must remember that Dortmund is in bad mood but Borussia was considered by bookmakers as a favorite (1.53).

At the same time Schalke 04 is rated as an underdog (5.50) while draw is unlikely too (4.00). Knappen suffered five defeats in the row in 1. Bundesliga. But recently as betting people said managed to improve performance taking seven points in three games. Markus Weinzierl’s men overcame on Veltins-Arena Borussia Mönchengladbach 4-0 and Mainz 05 3-0 alongside with draw 1-1 in Augsburg. That’s provided a sharp rise from the last position in standings to the 14th place. Moreover in Europa League and DFB-Pokal Schalke also gained two victories.

Notwithstanding such frustrating results Borussia Dortmund is considered by betting specialists as an automatic recipient of qualifying spot into next season's Champions League tournament. Indeed Schwarzgelben have a lots of players injured. They are Sven Bender, Emre Mor, Raphaël Guerreiro, Erik Durm, Marco Reus, Marcel Schmelzer and André Schürrle. So it is a tough challenge for Thomas Tuchel to keep BVB lineup strong enough. As to Schalke there are no many injuries except Breel Embolo. And according to bets the main task for Markus Weinzierl is to find appropriate interaction between old and new players.

Probably the underdog status of Schalke is explained by fact that Knappen had lost all away matches in championship except the last one against Augsburg. But the bet “Double Chance: Schalke Or Draw” (2.30) looks rather winning. In any case you may take “Both Teams To Score: Yes” (1.53) because both side have weak defense. For risky-gamblers I can propose “Draw and Over 2.5 Goals” (9.50) as two last Ruhr derbies broke through Total Match Goals Over 2.5 (1.60).
