Analyst’s Pick

The UNDER.

Not only is the UNDER a 4-star hot trend pick, but keep in mind Augsburg fails to score in about 45 percent of their away matches this season. They went scoreless in their last two Bundesliga fixtures, and it won’t be any easier to find the back of the net against Roman Burki. He set a new season record last weekend with 11 shots saved.
