Schalke 04 - Mainz 05 betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 01:00 on 06/03/2021 played @ VELTINS-Arena

Schalke 04 managing to pull off a victory here would be quite the upset. They are definitely underdogs, so even the home-field advantage isn’t able to push the odds lower than 3.60 for a home win.

The match is most likely to go in the away team’s favour, though it’s by no means a sure thing. With 2.10 betting odds to win, Mainz 05 have the upper hand going in, but all three possible outcomes are possible.

Schalke’s painful defeat in their previous away match could have been seen from a mile away. They were facing Stuttgart as visitors, so betting predictions never gave them much of a shot. The home team took an early lead which culminated in a 5:1 loss for Schalke.

Top bookmakers online were fairly optimistic about Mainz 04’s chances in the previous round. However, Augsburg defeated them 0:1 after establishing dominance in the first half.

Experts have pointed at Schalke 04’s defence as their biggest issue at the moment. They conceded 9 goals over the last 3 Bundesliga games.

Mainz are noted for taking a rather restrained and passive approach – at least as far as their most recent home games are concerned. The previous two confirmed the Under 5 Goals market, meaning they weren’t very exciting.

The season hasn’t been going great for Schalke 04. They’re stuck at 18th place, well within the relegation zone. There will be plenty of chances to place better, though online bookmakers don’t think their odds of earning points this Saturday are great.

Relegation is not that close for Schalke yet, but they’re definitely on the road towards it. The away game at SchalkeS threatens to push them even further down, but they’ll have plenty of time to record better results in the future.

The match these two teams played earlier in the season ended in a draw. Overall, Schalke have a lot more reason to feel happy about that, being the underdogs in the matchup.

On top of being considered underdogs, the home team is forced to play with a limited roster. With Matija Nastasić, Salif Sané, Nassim Boujellab, Steven Skrzybski, Gonçalo Paciência, Frederik Rønnow, Kilian Ludewig, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar all unavailable due to injury, they have very limited means at their disposal to beat the odds.

We recommend that you back Mainz in a Draw No Bet wager. The risks are still quite minimal due to the market, but there’s still plenty of betting value to make the wager worthwhile.
