My favorite strategy to handicap footy is to target goals. With all of the different variables in this sport that is already difficult to handicap, I just feel there are the most variables that can go “right” for you. Fluke penalty kicks, early red cards, late desperate goals etc.
First, Bundesliga 2 is known for a fast paced league where games often accumulate 25/30+ shots in 90+ minutes. These two teams definitely can find the back of the net, especially Furth who is scoring 2.4 GPG (goals per game) on the road this season and average 1.9 xG (expected goals) overall. Both of these teams are 5/5 over 2.5 goals in their L5 matches. Also of note, the L2 H2H matches have gone over 2.5 goals including Furth finding the net 5 times in a 5-1 road victory in their last trip to Wildparkstadion in Karlsruhe, Germany.
I have watched this Furth team a couple times this season, and they certainly have become a favorite of mine. They pass the eye test and I think they have a legitimate shot at promotion to Bundesliga at the end of the campaign. I think they win 3-1 so I’ll take my chances on the over 2.75 goal line at -125 odds.
