Stuttgart welcome FC Koln to the Mercedes Benz Arena hoping to recover from a three-game winless run in the Bundesliga. Stuttgart are sitting just one place above the relegation places, and they do so only on the basis of a slightly better goal difference compared to Hamburg, who are in the 16th place. FC Koln have been rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga 2017-18 table since the start of the season. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.

VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Betting Tips for the game

Stuttgart were unable to extend their good form against Frankfurt after losing 2-1 before the international break. This was the second defeat in the last three games for the club.

Koln fell to a 2-1 home loss against RB Leipzig and this was the club’s fourth defeat in the last five competitive matches. So far, Peter Stoger has seen his team manage just two goals this season.

The recent game between these two teams was at the RheinEnergieStadion with Stuttgart getting a 3-1 win. Incredibly, Koln were able to get a similar victory in their last visit to the Mercedes Benz Arena. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Stuttgart.

Prediction and betting tip: Stuttgart win at 21/20 with Sportingbet

VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Match odds

Koln have been one of the poorest teams in the division so far, and the club have only managed one point. The away team can be backed at 3/1 for a victory, but we will not choose this selection. The poor start made by Koln has shown no signs of improving, while Stuttgart will have home support behind them. One of the disadvantages for Stuttgart is a weak offence but this is unlikely to help the away team get anything out of the game. Our preview is confident of backing a Stuttgart win at 21/20 with Sportingbet.

Stuttgart win odds: 21/20 with Sportingbet

VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Correct Score odds

The lack of goals from Stuttgart have been a major factor behind the club struggling to rise up the table. After having scored 50 goals in 34 matches in their previous Bundesliga season, Stuttgart were always going to find this 2017-18 season tough due to the jump in quality from the second division. They are up against a Koln team that has picked up just two goals in seven games, while they have conceded 15 in the process. The opponent’s poor defence is likely to cause a Stuttgart 2-0 win, which is priced at 8/1 with Sky Bet.

Correct score prediction: Stuttgart 2-0 win at 8/1 with Sky Bet

VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Since Koln do not score much and have conceded almost 2 goals per game, this game may rely entirely on the goals from the home team for entertainment purposes. Stuttgart have not been prolific in games against Koln after scoring just six in five. Our total goals prediction is to back under 2.5 goals at 3/4 with Bet365.

Goal odds and predictions: Under 2.5 goals at 3/4 with Bet365
