Köln - Bochum betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 14:30 on 28/08/2021 played @ RheinEnergieStadion

With bookies pricing a home win at 1.92, it’s clear the match may yet go either way. The hosts have a distinct advantage, of course, but both a draw and an away win are quite possible outcomes.

Bochum appear severely unprepared for a clash with Köln, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.20 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

The Billy Goats’s latest away game against Bayern München ended in a narrow 3:2 loss for them, though it can hardly be called a disaster. They were up against a far stronger opponent but managed to keep the score even in the first half. Either way, a concession in the late game sent them home with no points.

Bochum are coming off from a decisive home victory against Mainz 05. At odds of 2.95 on a home win, few expected such a result – though Bochum already established dominance in the first half.

This match is notable for the number of injuries reported prior by both sides. On one hand, the hosts will have to make do without Jannes Horn, Marvin Schwäbe, Timo Hübers. On the other, the visitors will not be able to count on Saulo Decarli, Maxim Leitsch, Soma Novothny, Danny Blum, Luis Hartwig, Christopher Antwi-Adjei, Eduard Löwen, Patrick Osterhage, Konstantinos Stafylidis. Both are in a precarious state, but you should take the importance of these players to the respective strategies before putting down a stake.

Despite the risks involved, the strongest prediction in terms of value is an HT/FT bet that the hosts will take lead in the second half. It’s as risky as you might expect, though the 4.0 odds offer a decent return.
