Both Teams To Score – Yes
There is a big difference in strength between these two teams but generally, both teams are quite similar – they score a lot of goals and their defense is not the strongest part of their style. Let's take the team of Karlsruher for example. Their last 5 matches have been thrilling – there were 18 goals in those 5 games and in each case – both teams scored. Bayer Leverkusen has seen similar results although the team has been playing against various sides in several different competitions. Overall, we expect Bayer to come out with some reserves which would give additional chances to Karlsruher. We expect goals from both sides.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
In a similar fashion, we expect to see over 2.5 goals even if only Bayer Leverkusen score them. Not that it is certain that the home team will prevail but they are the clear favorite for this fixture and it is expected that they will score several goals no matter the line-up. As mentioned above, we also expect to see Karlsruher with at least one goal as the team has proven that it can score a lot. Moreover, the difference between 2 Bundesliga and the weaker teams in the top tier is not big and Leverkusen have been conceding to the weaker teams.
Asian Total Corners – Over 9.5
Bayer Leverkusen's style of play often ends in the team taking a lot of corners. We could easily expect at least 5-6 from them in this type of match. Even more important is the fact that they usually allow their opponents to take equally as much or more. The line of over 9.5 is definitely a high one and we wouldn't typically pick it but this match should be open and both teams will likely be playing attacking football, so we can expect a large number of corners.
