3 pts VfL BOCHUM +0.5 Asian Handicap 1.11/1 ( Betfair) v Schalke 04 Bundesliga 1

An interesting NRW Derby, with both teams desperate for the points for contrasting reasons.Bochum are 26 pts adrift of the SO4 and are still fighting for their survival. To their credit, they are obtaining results at the moment and like the SO4 , have won five out their last ten. Everybody is waiting for the SO4 to bottle this championship, and a defeat for them here will give Bremen an opportunity to go top.They have a good record in clashes between these two teams and have attained a consistency in recent months that has sometimes been lacking in the past. However given the nature of this contest, the home side appeal value wise and are worth backing with a start on the Asians.

Bochum 2 S04 1 + 3.3 pts
