Football Bet of the Day: Back a Bochum bonanza

Bochum celebrate
Bochum haven't had much to celebrate this season

We're hoping for some Friday night fun in Germany, as two teams with weak defences go head-to-head.

"Bochum have seen nine of their 16 league games feature at least four goals, and three of Hannover's last six outings have seen an Over 3.5 Goals bet land."

Back Over 3.5 Goals at 2.8415/8

Strugglers to serve up a treat

Bochum v Hannover
Friday 13 December, 17:30

Dynamo Kyiv went flat last night, as they drew 1-1 with Lugano, and crashed out of the Europa League. After being deprived of entertainment in the Ukrainian capital, we'll go in search of fun in Germany. Bochum are up against Hannover, and I think we could be in for a goalfest.

Both teams are well off the pace when it comes to the promotion race. Bochum gave mighty Bayern Munich a scare in the DFB Cup earlier this season - they led late on, but bravely succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. That heroism has been in short supply on Bundesliga 2 - Bochum have only won three of their 16 matches, and they are 12 points short of the top three.

Hannover were relegated last season, but their attempt to make it back into the top flight has been a disaster so far. Former H96 coach Mirko Slomka's return was a failure, and he lasted until November. Former Sandhausen boss Kenan Kocak, who is just 38, has been brought in to try to rescue the campaign.

I don't trust either team in terms of backing them to get a result, but I do fancy goals here. Bochum's 16 league games have featured 58 goals at an average of 3.62, and nine of those matches have seen an Over 3.5 Goals bet land.

Hannover have seen three of their last six games feature at least four goals, and they have conceded three goals or more in three of their last six away matches.

I'll back Over 3.5 Goals here at a hefty 2.8415/8.
