Bochum vs RB Leipzig Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips 03/02/2024

Two weeks ago, Bochum defeated Bayern Munich, but we’re still talking about a team that’s 15th in the Bundesliga standings. That’s why RB Leipzig is heavily favored against Bochum in the soccer odds. There’s also the fact that the Red Bulls can’t even afford to draw, at least not if they want to keep fighting for fourth place.

Bochum (5-10-8) has been considerably better when playing at home, where the Blues only lost one of their last 10 games. That should be enough for them to come in as the betting online favorites, but not so fast. RB Leipzig (12-4-7) dominates the odds for the match on Saturday at Vonovia Ruhrstadion thanks to a -150 price. The home side is +365 and the kickoff is set for 9:30 a.m. ET.

Bochum vs RB Leipzig Over/Under Pick: RB Leipzig Over 1½ (-165)

I’m going to say it, again – RB Leipzig is one of the most talented teams in Europe, especially when it comes to the attacking unit. Lois Openda has scored 16 goals in the Bundesliga. Only two other players have scored more. The Belgian is supported by Xavi Simmons, Yussuf Poulsen and Benjamin Sesko.

Regardless of the result, the Red Bulls scored in nine of their last 10 road games, including a 2-1 defeat against Bayern Munich. That’s why I expect both teams to score, but I don’t expect the total to go over three goals. That’s why you should include Leipzig’s total going over in your soccer picks.

Bochum vs RB Leipzig Moneyline Pick: RB Leipzig (-150)

Yes, Bochum recently defeated Bayern Munich 3-2, but let’s face it, Bayern Munich was going through a rough patch. There’s also the fact that Bochum only won one of the previous 10 meetings between the two. Plus, RB Leipzig is on the verge of elimination from the UEFA Champions League, which means the Red Bulls’ priority should be to finish in the Bundesliga top four. In order to make it, they can’t even afford to draw in matches against teams outside the top 10.

Bochum vs RB Leipzig Prop Pick: RB Leipzig Winning by 1 (+300)

I have no doubt that RB Leipzig is the better team, and the Red Bulls are going to win, but Bochum will put up a good fight. Seven of Bochum’s last 10 games at home finished with a draw or a one-goal difference. The same happened in six of RB Leipzig’s last 10 games on the road. In fact, I think the first half will end with a draw and the visitors will score the winner late in the second.
