Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips - Over 3.5 Goals

Leverkusen have made a stunning start to their Bundesliga season with a record-breaking points haul achieved through 12 games played. With 11 wins and just one draw, Leverkusen sit proudly at the summit of the division, two points clear of an on-form Bayern Munich.

Xabi Alonso´s men come into this match fresh enough from a comfortable midweek win in the Europa League against Hacken. Thursday´s 2:0 victory made it 14 wins in a row in all competitions since a 2:2 draw at champions Bayern in September. Leverkusen scored an impressive 43 goals while conceding just nine during that sensational winning run.

In addition, the hosts have scored at least two goals in 19 of 20 games played this season while they bagged at least three in 14 of those matches.

Dortmund come into Sunday's massive matchup also in good form, if not quite as impressive as Leverkusen. Edin Terzic´s side scored a massive 3:1 win on the road at Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday. Dortmund have now won seven and lost just two of their last ten matches across all competitions.

In the Bundesliga, BVB sit 4th in the division but already a massive ten points behind Leverkusen. Terzic´s men managed to fight back from two goals down to claim a vital 4:2 win against Monchengladbach last weekend. 

Historically, this fixture has been an entertaining one with seven of their last ten meetings seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals. 31 goals have been scored in the last seven matches between these rivals and we should expect another high-scorer on Sunday.

While I do fancy Leverkusen to maintain their winning form, the goal markets cannot be ignored on Sunday. As such, over 2.5 goals is surely the safest pick while we should expect BTTS and over 3.5 goals scored with Leverkusen potentially emerging victorious in a likely thrilling contest.
