Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Darmstadt – Cologne odds and probability figures ahead of Friday’s scuffle below.

Darmstadt odds: 17/10 (2.70) – 37%

Draw odds: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%

Cologne odds: 6/4 (2.50) – 40%

With home advantage not considered the determining factor, Cologne have been named as Friday’s expected winners and the bookies have set the probability of an away victory at 40%. The visitors are also favoured in the markets at 10/11 (1.91) to score the first goal and that option comes with an implied probability of 52.4%. A 2-1 win in Darmstadt’s favour however, catches our eye in the correct score market this week at 17/2 (9.50). That outcome has a 10.5% probability of success.
