Hoffenheim - Bochum predictions

Kickoff starts at 20:30 on 08/12/2023 played @ PreZero Arena refereed by Matthias Jöllenbeck

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.75 is a solid option. That said, Bochum may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 4.40 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

The 2:1 defeat of Hoffenheim in the previous round against Borussia M'gladbach was somewhat predictable. Still, they managed to maintain an even score for the entire first half, which gives a silver lining to the narrow away loss at the end.

Bochum’s previous Bundesliga match saw them play top of their game. They were considered somewhat weaker than their opponents Wolfsburg, so the lead in the first half was unexpected. Bochum then proceeded to decisively win the match 3:1.

The hosts’ fans are somewhat disappointed at them, given the lacklustre defensive performances they’ve seen recently. Hoffenheim conceded more than 5 times over the previous 3 games played at PreZero Arena.

We should point out that Bochum scored more than 5 goals over the course of their previous 3 home games. They’re visitors this time around, but it’s still worth noting for the benefit of bets like Over 5 Goals.

Before committing to any betting predictions, we’ll have to mention the harsh defeat Hoffenheim suffered last season. Bochum walked away with an impressive victory on that occasion which directly defies the $ODDS home win odds offered by top online bookmakers.

The odds being what they are, remember that they were priced with various injuries in mind. The hosts reported that Dennis Geiger, Marco John, Bambasé Conté, Mergim Berisha will have to sit this one out, while Bochum will have to make do without Lys Mousset, Mohammed Tolba, Michael Esser, Ivan Ordets, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Noah Loosli, Mats Pannewig.

Based on both teams’ previous performances, an Over 2.5 Goals bet is very likely to win. The returns are somewhat limited at the odds of 1.53, but it’s still an incredibly safe bet.

Betting tip (stake: 9/10): Over 2,5 1.53 at William Hill
Correct score prediction: 3:1
Match result: 3-1
