The DFB Pokal (German Cup) round of 16 finishes off Wednesday with four games on tap, including Wolfsburg hosting Bayer Leverkusen at the Volkswagen Arena.Wolfsburg has struggled so far in the Bundesliga as it sits in 15th spot. The club defeated Bundesliga 2. side FSV Frankfurt in its last Cup match, but Wolfsburg's record at home is one of the worst in the top flight at 1-4-3 (W-L-T). Its one victory, ironically enough, happened to be a 3-1 result against Leverkusen back in early November, which may entice some bettors, but don't take them here.
The hosts are listed at 2.78 right now over at Uwin.com, and 3.30 for the halftime lead, but their failure to notch goals at home has been a major thorn in their side this season, with only six goals to show in eight matches. They have also allowed opponents to come into their building and score close to an average of two goals per match, something they absolutely must address against a potent Leverkusen offense.
The draw result at the end of 90 minutes is being offered at 3.35 while the away/away result in the halftime/fulltime market is at 3.80.
Leverkusen is only behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table, and though a dominant force back at home it has been a hit or miss on the road with a mark of 4-4-1 to show for it. An away victory is being issued at 2.38 which is not bad at all. Should the visitors lead at half and finish with the victory, that moves up to 3.80 while the draw/away bumps it even further to 5.75.
I expect the over 2.5 at 1.65 and 3.5 at 2.66 to hit in this game given Leverkusen's ability to score and concede a lot of goals while on the road (34 total goals in 9 away matches). Despite Wolfsburg's lacklustre offence, take a look at the both teams to score bet at 1.55, as Leverkusen has only shutout its hosts once all season long.
