The Bundesliga returns to action on Saturday, May 23rd and the betting public is picking the favorites in a big way. DraftKings Sportsbook broke down the betting splits for each match, and only one has the underdog getting the most action.

One of the biggest matches of Saturday features Borussia Mönchengladbach hosting Bayer Leverkusen. With four points separate second and fifth place, this matchup of the third and fifth place teams is key for Champions League qualifying. Mönchengladbach is +133 to win, with Leverkusen at +175 and a draw at +265. 42 percent of total bets are on the favorite, but 46 percent of handle is on the underdog. With 20 percent of bets and handle on a draw, we have no pure majority in betting.

The remaining four Saturday matches have ridiculous majorities on the favorite. TSG Hoffenheim is +180 against SC Paderborn 07 (+220) and is getting 78 percent of bets and 86 percent of handle — and that’s the lowest total! The betting public is incredibly square with these matches, so feel free to adjust accordingly.
