FC Union Berlin 2, FC Schalke 04 0Money line (ML)
FC UNION BERLIN (+150) is a solid value straight up in regular time against Schalke 04 (+195), a club off to the worst start in Bundesliga history. Plenty of sides have opened with three losses in three matches, but Union has a dismal minus-14 goal differential, scoring just once while conceding 15 goals. That’s awful, and there is very little reason to believe that it will turn things around against a decent Berlin side, regardless if it’s at home or not.
New to sports betting? A winning $10 bet on FC Union Berlin returns $15, while a winning bet on FC Schalke 04 fetches a profit of $19.50.Over/Under (O/U)
UNDER 2.5 (-139) is a little risky given the fact Schalke has been terrible defensively. But Berlin is averaging just 2.0 goals per match, and it’s probably the least offensively gifted club Schalke has faced. Even the defensively-challenged Schalke side should be able to keep it within arm’s length.
