Hoffenheim are back at the Rhein Neckar Arena after three consecutive away matches and the team hosts Augsburg this weekend. Julian Nagelsmann has seen his team make-up places closer to the top six and they are now just one point behind Werder Bremen. Augsburg have been going through a mediocre campaign and they are bang in the middle of the table. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hoffenheim were unable to come up with an impressive performance to snatch a 4-1 victory against Leverkusen at the BayArena. This was followed by yet another high-scoring draw with Lyon in the Champions League.
Augsburg were involved in a disappointing 2-2 draw with Nuremberg at home. These two dropped points at home meant that Augsburg have been able to pick up just two victories in the last six games.
Hoffenheim were able to snatch a 2-0 win over Augsburg in the recent trip to the WWK Arena. The recent meeting between these two teams at the Rhein Neckar Arena produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Hoffenheim.

Augsburg are at a price of 5.00 to come out successful in the game. However, we would not choose this option considering that Manuel Baum’s men have been unable to convert the draws into victories so far. Augsburg have been involved in four stalemates in just 10 league games. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim find themselves in a good run of form with the team registering three consecutive victories – including an impressive away victory over Leverkusen. Four out of the recent six meetings between these two teams have seen Hoffenheim come out victorious and our preview would go with more of the same.

Correct Score odds
Hoffenheim have been on a strong surge of attacking form with plenty of goals so far this season. In fact, Nagelsmann has seen his team registering more goals than the likes of Bremen and Bayern Munich. Augsburg have been poor at the back in away matches with just nine goals scored. Hoffenheim’s excellent scoring form of late makes our correct score prediction go with a 2-1 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been no shortage of goals in matches involving Hoffenheim. Julian Nagelsmann’s outfit have been scoring goals for fun but they have also been unable to keep out the opposition. Augsburg have a potent threat in the form of Alfred Finnbogason. As a result, our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Even though Augsburg also have plenty of goalscorers in their ranks, Hoffenheim are just better in this regard. Joelinton has been able to shine in the domestic competitions, while Andrej Kramaric has been able to come up with the goals in Europe. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Joelinton, who has four league goals this season.
