Football Bet of the Day: More back and forth for Bielefeld
Arminia Bielefeld might be top of the Bundesliga 2, but they're struggling to keep clean sheets, points out Tobias Gourlay
Arminia Bielefeld v Bochum Tuesday 17:30
In the Netherlands last night, Jong AZ Alkmaar and Almere City delivered on their big billing. 1-1 at half-time, they ended up drawing 3-3 to land our Over 3.5 Goals bet with something to spare.
We're hoping for a similar result across the border in Germany today. Arminia Bielefeld are top of the Bundesliga 2 table, but they have not had everything their own way. The reverse fixture at Bochum finished 3-3 earlier this season and we're hoping for BTTS to land again this afternoon.
The hosts have been doing their best work on the road this term. At Bielefelder Alm, they are just W2-D5-L1, having conceded in all eight of those matches. Third-placed Stuttgart are the only visitors to have stopped the Blues from scoring, which means 7/8 have delivered BTTS.
Fourteenth-placed Bochum have been more predictably shaky on the road this season. They've conceded in 8/8 away games so far, leaking twice or more in 5/8. At the other end, however, they have scored in 7/8, including 5/5 since Thomas Reis because head coach. With their record also showing BTTS landing 7/8 similar matches this term, we're ready to take the 1.70 about BTTS in tonight's clash.
