Werder Bremen has had a tough go of it through 6 games going 0-3-3. Hamburg Sits in the lower half of the table, but with a win this week they could see themselves just outside a top spot, so you can bet they’ll be pushing Bremen hard.

Yes – (4/6)
No – (11/10)
We tend to pick really unexciting games on paper, but most of these kinds of games provide the most return on your investments. In this case, its 14th Hamburg, who has a -4 goal difference in 5 games, against Werder Bremen’s -4 in 6 games. The difference between the two is Hamburg’s 2 wins to Werder’s zero.
While their record is still 2-0-3, it is a positive that 2 of Hamburg’s 4 goals have come off the foot of their top two goal scorers from a year ago, Nicolai Muller and Bobby Wood. If these two can continue their offensive pushes, they stand to flip their record in their favor.
Of course, it’s nice when you’re trying to get your scorers going to face such a porous defensive like Werner Bremen’s. They have allowed 7 goals in their 6 contests thus far, and only are above last place thanks to their 3 goals that have led to 3 draws, earning them a point a game.
Bremen was expecting Max Kruse to follow up his 15 goal performance from a year ago, but still, is waiting for his first. This is a huge storyline for this game, as Hamburg has allowed 8 goals in 5 games, and Kruse knows how to put the ball in the net for his struggling squad.
Hamburg 2 – 1 Werner Bremen
Hitting Over 2.5 goals (9/10) is only possible due to both teams having such defensive holes. If Wood and Muller can put on the pressure they should jump their would-be overachieving squad into a top 10 spot on the league table, and Max Kruse can only be held out of the net for so long. That’s why both teams with more than likely score (4/6).
Ultimately though, Hamburg should take the win (6/4).
