Odds from Betonline.ag

Borussia is coming in as the favorite because of their dominating win in their last match. However, a major problem is the Borussia Monchengladbach club does not have a defense that has played good on the year. The VfL Bochum club lost their last game mainly because of an own goal that allowed their opponent to equalize. Neither one of these teams plays good defense and that will allow the over to hit in this game, but look for Bochum to pull off the upset in the match here.
