VfL Bochum Analysis

VfL Bochum have had an inauspicious start to their Bundesliga campaign with an atrocious record of 0-2-1. Their statistics paint an alarming picture: their expected goals are 3.5, but they have conceded an astonishing eight goals. Their average of 0.67 points per match indicates they are struggling to find their footing, with 2.67 goals being conceded per 90 minutes by their defense, allowing an alarming expected goal against the figure of 6.2; additionally, they have yet to keep a clean sheet this year and goal differential standing at -5 which indicates they are losing ground rather than making gains; furthermore, they have collected five yellow cards, signalling discipline issues within their ranks.

Manuel Riemann has had a difficult time as the Bochum goalkeeper. Manuel has not been impressive in stats, with an inauspicious record of 150-112-133 and a goals-allowed rate of 1.30 per 90 minutes compared to other Bundesliga goalkeepers. With only a 72.7 save percentage and no clean sheets this season, his numbers may prove detrimental rather than helpful to Bochum’s cause.

Eintracht Frankfurt Analysis

Eintracht Frankfurt has made an encouraging start with a 1-2-0 record and looks strong going into this matchup. Although they have scored three goals compared to their estimated goal-scoring ability of 3.8, they have conceded only two. Kevin Trapp has enjoyed an outstanding record as goalkeeper; additionally, their average points per match stand at an acceptable 1.7 figure, putting them in far better stead than Bochum, who have yet to keep one clean sheet so far this season.

Kevin Trapp has made an impressionful performance. Over 29,841 minutes, he has amassed 86 shutouts to his name with a save percentage of 71.2 and a goals-allowed rate of 1.34 per 90 minutes (better than Bochum’s Riemann). Trapp is seen as a steadying influence by Frankfurt.

VfL Bochum vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Against the Spread

VfL Bochum has not had the best of seasons recently, registering only two victories out of 13 matches across all competitions – they rank 15th in expected goals per match as well as failing to keep a clean sheet all season – leading to less-than-optimistic predictions from betting enthusiasts who intend on back them as underdogs (their moneyline of +295) in this game.

Eintracht Frankfurt has shown itself to be an inconsistent yet more stable side, not losing in six consecutive Bundesliga matches and 9 of their 10 overall matches in all competitions – though their away form must be taken with caution as only 2 of 17 away games were won during that span. Nonetheless, Eintracht is considered the favorite given their overall strength and -120 moneyline odds; this could prove fatally misleading to overly confident bettors who forget Frankfurt’s subpar away performance.

VfL Bochum vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Free Pick

Here are our picks based on odds and team performances:

Moneyline: Eintracht Frankfurt -120

Frankfurt is the safer bet given their overall better form and more balanced team.

Spread: VfL Bochum +1 (-111) 

Despite their struggles, Bochum being at home could help them keep the game closer than expected.

Total: 2.5 under (-150)

Given Frankfurt’s solid defensive record, a lower-scoring game is probable.

Draw: While both teams have been inconsistent, Frankfurt’s stronger lineup makes a draw less likely.
