Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

The stats suggest there isn't an obvious winner in this fixture, but good reason to think Köln and VfL Bochum will find the net twice at least between them. Goals have flowed freely when they've gone head-to-head historically, and neither Timo Schultz or Thomas Letsch has subjected their supporters to too many 0-0s lately either. The bookies are predicting over 1.5 goals too, with top odds of 1.25 equating to roughly a 76% probability.
