Saturday will be jam-packed with soccer, as the last nine Bundesliga games of the season are set to kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET. We break down the DraftKings Sportsbook betting splits for the games and discuss what the results of Saturday’s matches mean for relegation, Champions League qualifying, and Europa League qualifying below.

Bayern Munich has already secured first place in the Bundesliga, and Borussia Dortmund has locked up second place. However, third and fourth place are still up for grabs. Only the top four teams punch automatic tickets to the group stage of the Champions League. Leipzig, Mönchengladbach, and Leverkusen will be battling it out for those spots.

Leipzig is in third place and can lock will hold that spot with a win. It is favored at -250 to top 15th place Augsburg (+600). The battle for fourth place will be a little more complicated though.

Mönchengladbach and Leverkusen have 62 and 61 points, respectively. That’s behind Leipzig’s mark of 63 points. Monchengladbach is favored at -286 against Hertha (+700) while Leverkusen is favored at (-385) against Mainz (+850). Both sides have a shot at third if Leipzig loses. Each of these teams will automatically qualify for the Europa League, as the top six squads in the Bundesliga gain entry.

Either Hoffenheim or Wolfsburg will become the final team to qualify for the Europa League. Both have 49 points and are clear of eighth place Freiburg by four points. Goal differential may come into play here though, as Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg are underdogs. Wolfsburg will be up against first place Bayern Munich while Hoffenheim will face Borussia Dortmund. It’s unlikely that there will be an upset in these games, so expect Wolfsburg’s +6 goal differential to launch them past Hoffenheim, which has a goal differential of -4.

Now for the team’s facing relegation. Last place Paderborn only has 20 points, which is eight points behind 17th place Werder Bremen. Werder Bremen has a chance to jump to 16th with a win over Koln, but Fortuna Dusseldorf would have to lose or tie with Union Berlin for that to happen.

Bayern Munich has the highest handle percentage (99) in the slate ahead of its match against Wolfsburg. Mönchengladbach is favored by a slate-high 94 percent of bettors in its matchup with Hertha. Interestingly enough, 86 percent of the money being bet on the Bayer Leverkusen-Mainz game is on a tie.
