Win probability

  • HOME: 7/10 (1.70) – 58.8%
  • DRAW: 3/1 (4.00) – 25%
  • AWAY: 17/5 (4.40) – 22.7%

This weekend’s expected winners are Hoffenheim and a home win comes equipped with an implied probability of 58.8% on Friday. A 1-1 draw is an outcome that could be worth a look at 13/2 (7.50) in the correct score department, however. That option has a probability rating of 13.3%. Siding with a draw in the half time result market could also be a smart move at a price of 13/10 (2.30).

Player to Watch – Kevin Stoger

Experienced attacking midfielder Kevin Stoger was at his creative best last weekend when he played a mammoth seven key passes in Bochum’s fine 3-1 win over Wolfsburg. The 30-year-old managed to lodge an assist in his team’s win, though he could have added more had some of his teammates not fluffed their lines.
