1. FSV Mainz 05 vs FC Schalke 04 – Match odds

Mainz 05 are priced at 3.75 for a victory. Despite these attractive odds, we would not go with a home win. Schalke have been performing extremely well in recent weeks. Even without Burgstaller in the ranks, Domenico Tedesco saw his team get a comfortable win over Hertha Berlin in the recent game. Schalke are hoping for a fourth consecutive win over Mainz 05, while also looking to keep Borussia Dortmund behind them in the Bundesliga 2017-18 table. Our preview for this game expects a Schalke win, which is priced at 2.05 with Betway.

1. FSV Mainz 05 vs FC Schalke 04 – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

This fixture has produced high-scoring matches in the past, but the last two encounters between Schalke and Mainz 05 have been close-fought games with less than 2.5 goals. Since Mainz 05 have been unable to get much of an attacking threat going, our total goals expectation for this game is under 2.5 goals. It is priced at 1.65 with Betway.

Goal odds and predictions: Under 2.5 goals at 1.65 with Betway Kenya

1. FSV Mainz 05 vs FC Schalke 04 – First Goalscorer odds

Burgstaller may have completed his suspension, but he is doubtful with a tooth injury. This is likely to see Franco di Santo continue in the starting line-up. Leon Goretzka has been one of the top scorers at Schalke this season. He has four league goals – including the opener against Mainz 05 earlier in the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would choose Leon Goretzka at 10.00 with Betway.

First goalscorer prediction: Goretzka at 10.00 with Betway Kenya
