The lone Bundesliga match on Friday pits Hertha Berlin as it hosts Werder Bremen. The home side is favoured by William Hill and should emerge with full points.
Last weekend was the low point in Werder Bremen's season, one that sees the club currently sitting 14th in the 18-team German top flight.
Werder was absolutely destroyed in Bavaria as Bayern Munich delivered a colossal 7-0 victory that extended its winless streak to four games. Today, the struggling club faces a Berlin side that has an opportunity to temporarily go into sixth spot in the table, fighting for a European spot.
The hosts are listed by William Hill at 1.67 to deliver the win in the outright market, with the halftime/fulltime selection taking that to 2.40. I actually prefer the Berlin win with both teams to score at 3.20. For all of Werder's woes it's been able to score in six of its eight road matches this season, and it'll come out hard after taking the Bayern beating.
A draw result is being offered right now by the same firm at a hefty 4.00. Both teams have only drawn 27 percent of their matches in the league this season.
A visitor win is available at 4.80, with the double chance (a Bremen win or draw) at 2.20. If you are taking Bremen - which I won't be - you are better off selecting the latter pick as a way to manage your risk. Keep in mind, though, that Werder likely without their captain Clemen Fritz because of a thigh strain.
Take a look at Berlin's Colombian striker Adrian Ramos to score here today at odds of 2.00. Ramos has eight goals from 15 matches so far, which is good enough for fifth in the Bundesliga.
