Analyzing detailed statistics, one can notice a clear pattern in the game between Cologne and Stuttgart. Cologne's form appears to be on the decline, with no wins in their last five Bundesliga matches. This is in stark contrast to the form of Stuttgart, who have won four of their last five matches, scoring 17 goals and conceding just seven. Cologne's defense looks unconvincing: in the last five matches the team conceded 9 goals, and scored only 4 in attack.
Historical fixture data shows a balanced scenario, but recent fixtures show Stuttgart having a slight advantage. An important factor to consider is Stuttgart's relatively high performance. They constantly surpass the 2.5 goal mark, which makes it possible to count on high performance in the game. In addition, the data shows Stuttgart's tendency to control possession and take more shots on goal.
Analyzing specific indicators such as possession, expected goals (xG) and corners, Stuttgart demonstrates a more active attack. The numbers suggest that Stuttgart are making the most of possession, converting their ball control into significantly more shots on target.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals bmore than 2.5, CF 1. 70
Why: Stuttgart are in excellent scoring form, scoring 17 goals in their last five matches and averaging over 2.5 goals per game. Cologne are weak defensively, conceding nine goals in their last five matches. The combination of Stuttgart's attacking prowess and Cologne's defensive vulnerability makes betting on goals over 2.5 an optimal bet with relatively low risk.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Win Stuttgart, CF 2. 40
Why: Stuttgart's excellent form, as well as their attacking superiority, reflected in more shots on target and better possession statistics, makes them favorites against Cologne. Four wins in the last five matches further strengthen Stuttgart's position.
Among all the betting options, the Stuttgart to Win bet offers the best balance between good odds and reasonable risk. Their excellent form of late and constant attacking pressure make this the most attractive bet. The 2.10 odds increase potential profit, making this bet attractive to bettors looking for a balance of risk and reward.
Event: Total corners
Bid: Total corners bmore than 9.5, CF 1. 75
Why: Both Cologne and Stuttgart are characterized by a large number of corners in matches. This trend, combined with the attacking and defensive strategies of both teams, makes the chance of the total number of corners exceeding 9.5 a very likely bet.
