Bayer Leverkusen hope to jump into the top half of the table when they host Hoffenheim at the BayArena this weekend. Leverkusen moved on to 11 points in the table after a hugely positive result last weekend. However, they still trail Hoffenheim, who have 13 points on board. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bayer Leverkusen picked up a 6-2 victory over Werder Bremen during the weekend. This was the first Bundesliga victory for Leverkusen since the narrow win over Fortuna Dusseldorf towards the end of September. The midweek DFB Pokal match witnessed Leverkusen getting a 5-0 success over Mönchengladbach to reach the third round.
Hoffenheim made the most of Stuttgart being down to 10 men for most of the game to pick up a 4-0 victory at the Rhein Neckar Arena. This was the first home win for Hoffenheim in five games across all competitions. However, Julian Nagelsmann saw his team lose 2-0 against RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal second round.
The recent game between these two teams took place at the Rhein Neckar Arena with Leverkusen managing a 4-1 win. The last meeting at the BayArena produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Leverkusen.

Hoffenheim are placed at a price of 3.20 to win this match. Yet, we would rather skip this option even at this price. Hoffenheim have been struggling for results and a home win over struggling Stuttgart should not be a barometer for this match. After seeing Leverkusen come up with two big wins on the road, there is every possibility of Heiko Herrlich’s team getting a second consecutive win over Hoffenheim. Our preview would go with a win for Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim draw odds: 4.00
Hoffenheim win odds: 3.20
Correct Score odds
The games between Leverkusen and Hoffenheim have witnessed a decent amount of goals. Even though Leverkusen have been able to get a remarkable 11 goals in the last two games, it is likely that Hoffenheim will not come up with counter-tactics. Recent meetings between the two clubs at the BayArena have been close but our correct score prediction would still go with a 2-1 win for Leverkusen.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Leverkusen have been able to score over 1.5 goals in five out of the last six home matches against Hoffenheim, who have also failed to score at the BayArena in just one of the last five visits. Since both teams have a decent scoring touch coming into the game, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kevin Volland has been in impressive form of late. The 26-year-old was able to score a goal and come up with two assists in the 6-2 thrashing of Bremen. He also scored in the DFB Pokal match against Mönchengladbach. Even though he is yet to score against Hoffenheim, our first goalscorer prediction would back Kevin Volland.
