It looks like this to be another exciting match up in Germany but if you follow your Humble Handicapper’s tips you can take cash as well as pleasure when Bayer Leverkusen take on Hannover 96. 

It’s third-place Bayer against fourth-place Hannover when the sides meet on Saturday. 

The German top-flight has scene six matches but there's just three points that separate these two sides. Leverkusen are sitting on 15 points and have won all but one of their games whereas Hannover have 12 points and won all but two of the games, but with a considerably worse goal difference. Bayer have the goal difference of eight Hannover have a goal difference of two. 

Enough with the goal difference… WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE? 

Just a note that these sides have both won all of their home matches and have only lost away from home, so far.

The bookies seem to think the same thing will happen as they have Bayer Leverkusen winning the game at 2/5 a draw at 5/2 and Hannover victory at 9/1 for our soccer picks

The Bookies will have very relieved to know that, your Humble Handicapper agrees with them.

Why?

Partly because of the last five meetings between these two sides whenever we seen a winner it's been the home side to come out on top. Four times the home side has been victorious and three of those times it's been Bayer Leverkusen who have taken all the points. The one exception to this rule happened back in December 2011 when the two sides played out a 0-0 draw. A repeat of that score is offered up at 14/1 but I think that there will be goals in the scheme.

That's because Bayer Leverkusen have only failed to score in one of their last five games and Hannover have scored in three of their last four games as well.

Tying them up Bayer have amassed nine goals in their last four games while Hannover have clocked up five.

There Will Be Goals

But only see one winner. I'm very tempted to say both sides will score as in their last two encounters both sides have got on the scoresheet. So start betting on 2-1 at 7/1, 3-1 at 10/1 and if you think it's very heavy scoring game of 3-2 at 22/1 soccer odds.

I don’t think we'll see five goals in this game so your Humble Handicapper's going to temper it down a bit and lower his prediction accordingly.
