Hoffenheim’s train is betting-cosy, so let’s keep it rolling

<div><h2>FC Koln vs Hoffenheim</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/de/bundesliga/1-fc-cologne-vs-tsg-1899-hoffenheim-3841254/?mtid=1"><strong>Friday, November 8, RheinEnergieStadion</strong></a></p><p>Who was expecting Hoffenheim to win so many matches in a row after a horrible start to their season? Not us… probably their fans who are cheering for each all season long. Five consecutive wins, 12 goals score (2+ in each match), 3 clean sheets in the process. That’s amazing… We had them as our banker last week to beat Paderborn and over 1.5 goals in the match and they decided to keep us relaxed scoring 3 goals in the 1st half and adding 3 points to their season tally. They are sitting 9th in the standings, just 2 points behind 2nd placed Dortmund. Yes, 8 teams (from 2nd to 9th place) are separated by just 2 points. That says everything about Bundesliga this season, one of the most exciting leagues in Europe but very unpredictable in the same time. On the other side, FC Koln are the worst attacking side in the league with just 9 goals scored in 10 fixtures, sitting 17th in the standings, 2 points behind the 1st salvation spot.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Hoffe’s Andrej Kramaric was not used last weekend against Paderborn, and he will probably remain on the bench against FC Koln as he needs another week to be fully fit after the long-term injury. Jürgen Locadia scored last round against Paderborn and is expected to be joined by Ihlas Bebou, who also returned from injury. More good news for Hoffe: Diadie Samassekou is likely to sit on the bench and be used if needed, for the 1st time since round 3 after recovering from an injury. Belfodil, Ochs and Zuber will all miss this away clash. On the other side, FC Koln will be without Florian Kainz and Noah Katterbach who was replaced after 6 minutes in the 2-0 defeat to Dusseldorf.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Koln are in desperate need for points entering this match on the back of 3 consecutive defeats across all competition. During this period, they got knocked-out from the German Cup losing 3-2 to Saarbrucken a 3rd tier German team. Hoffenheim are fighting with records. If they win this game, they will set a new club record winning 6 matches in a row across all competitions. Wins bring wins… The visitors enter this match full of confidence and we expect them to perform at their best level against a struggling FC Koln team who will offer them many spaces.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Hoffenheim to win with DNB (Draw No Bet) at 2.08 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
