Mainz 05 have a quick opportunity to bounce back from the weekend’s disappointment when they host Wolfsburg at the Opel Arena in the midweek action. Mainz 05 have picked up seven points from the first four games of the campaign and this places them level along with Wolfsburg, who have been one of the several surprises at the start of this 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Mainz 05 had dropped only two points from the first three games of the campaign but Sandro Schwarz was unable to prevent his team from dropping to a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen.
Wolfsburg’s excellent start to the campaign took a turn for the worse with the team losing 3-1 against Freiburg despite dominating the possession. Still, manager Bruno Labbadia will be pleased with his team’s return of almost 2 points per game on an average so far.
The recent meeting between Mainz 05 and Wolfsburg produced a 1-1 draw at the Opel Arena. Similarly, our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Mainz 05 and Wolfsburg are not too far in terms of pricing for a victory in the game. However, both clubs are not in a great position to aim for a victory in the match. Both clubs have lost during the weekend but they have been quite good so far this season. Wolfsburg have been a surprise package just as Mainz 05, who were expected to finish in the bottom half of the table. Quite incredibly, the last five meetings between Wolfsburg and Mainz 05 have all finished as draws, which would be our pick in this preview.

Mainz 05 win odds: 2.62
Wolfsburg win odds: 2.70
Correct Score odds
The two teams cannot be more evenly matched going better head-to-head records, as four out of the last five meetings between Mainz 05 and Wolfsburg have concluded with a 1-1 score. It would not be surprising to see a repeat of the same, although Wolfsburg have averaged two goals per game this season. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
None of the Bundesliga games involving Wolfsburg this season has been low on goals but this match could be an exception owing to Mainz 05 being quite strong at the back. Past meetings between the two clubs have also hinted at a low scoring game. Our total goals prediction would opt for a game with under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.72[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Admir Mehmedi comes into the game with goals in his last two appearances. He last scored against Mainz 05 when he was at Freiburg back in the 2014-15 campaign. Since then, the 27-year-old has been unable to score in five matches against Mainz 05 but his recent run of form makes our first goalscorer prediction back the forward.
