Pre-game odds and win probability: Hosts named as underdogs

  • HOME: 19/10 (2.90) – 34.5%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Heidenheim collected three points at bottom-club Darmstadt (1-0) last weekend, though they have won only one of their last seven home games and that record has inspired the bookies to make the hosts underdogs ahead of Sunday’s clash. Heidenheim have just a 34.5% chance of landing a win in their second-last home match of the campaign.

Mainz are in desperate need for points in the battle to beat the drop and their sharper motivations could allow them to carve out a positive result on Sunday. Mainz are unbeaten in six and our football tips suggest that record could be intact after the weekend.

Player to watch – Jonathan Burkardt

Jonathan Burkardt has been chipping in with some important goals for Mainz of late and the 23-year-old forward managed to impact the scoresheet in two of his team’s last three Bundesliga fixtures.

Burkardt to shine again?

Burkardt has scored just six times in the Bundesliga overall this term, though all six of his strikes have come since early February and the centre-forward’s efforts could end up keeping Mainz in the division. Burkardt will be determined to convert any chances that fall his way again on Sunday.
