Borussia Dortmund will need to avoid the trap match when they have their first away match of the restart in facing VfL Wolfsburg today at 9:30 a.m. ET today live on FS1 and TUDN.

Der BVB will be favorites entering the match despite being on the road, but will need to avoid thinking ahead to their epic clash on Tuesday with top-of-the-table Bayern Munich that might be determinative for the 2020 Bundesliga title. Their 4-0 domination of rivals Schalke behind a brace from Raphaël Guerreiro was one of the more impressive performance of the first post-Covid-19 matches.

Right now, DraftKings Sportsbook bettors are having almost zero qualms about Dortmund whatsoever, as they’re receiving 92% of the bets and 98% of the handle as a -134 favorite on the three-way line. A draw at +280 receives crumbs at 1% of action and 4% of tickets, and Wolfsburg also getting just 1% of the money and 4% of the tickets.

While those percentages aren’t likely to hold until kickoff, it shows the disrespect bettors have for Bundesliga sides that aren’t the top two. Wolfsburg is right now qualified for Europa football next season sitting sixth in the table, but there’s no love to be had.
