Our free expert picks: Werder to avoid defeat?

Check out our rundown of football betting tips for the rest of the weekend’s action over on our dedicated page.

Hoffenheim have been installed as Sunday’s expected winners though we think backing a draw in the half time result market might be a smart ploy at 5/4 (2.25). That outcome comes with a 44.4% chance of success.

  • Hoffenheim failed to win any of their last four Bundesliga matches on home soil.

Other tips

  • Werder Bremen found the net once in each of their last four Bundesliga fixtures.

Both Teams to Score

Marvin Ducksch needs one goal to hit double figures – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Marvin Ducksch

Werder Bremen striker Marvin Ducksch needs just one goal to reach double figures for the Bundesliga campaign and he came close to reaching that landmark when he lodged four attempts at goal without success against Darmstadt last weekend.

Can Ducksch finally reach ten goals?

29-year-old Ducksch has scored twice since the end of the winter break in Germany, though he hasn’t found the net in three appearances and he will be keen to cut his dry spell short by finding the net again on Sunday.
