Top Bundesliga predictions for Wednesday
The model is leaning under 3.5 goals in Wednesday's matchup between RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin. RB Leipzig is coming off a dominant 5-0 victory over Mainz in its last outing. Forward Timo Werner recorded a hat trick in RB Leipzig's victory, giving him 24 goals in 27 games this season. Despite RB Leipzig's scoring outburst against Mainz on Sunday, RBL has struggled to find the back of the net at home. In fact, RB Leipzig has scored just two goals in its last two games at Red Bull Arena. In addition, RB Leipzig has given up just two goals in its last seven matches in the Bundesliga.
Hertha Berlin, meanwhile, features a suffocating defense that has recorded two consecutive shutouts since returning from the two month hiatus. Hertha Berlin has given up just five shots on target during that two game stretch, one of the main reasons the model is leaning towards the under on Wednesday.
