St Pauli vs Paderborn: Top Free Betting Tips
Perhaps nobody thought that St. Pauli will lose the leadership during this season but it is now a fact. The team needs to step it up if they want to keep their chances. Paderborn, on the other hand, fell way below the top and also need to boost up their efforts.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
We have two of the strongest teams in the league and two of the highest-scoring sides also. This game will be a battle literally and we expect goals from both sides. The previous game between them ended in a 3:1 win for Paderborn and we wouldn't be surprised to see a similar result here although St. Pauli were the strongest team until recently. Six out of the nine games on the road ended with more than 2 goals for Paderborn while St. Pauli had at least three goals in 8 out of 9 fixtures.
Double Chance – Draw or Paderborn
We are going against the obvious favorite here but there is a really good reason why. It is a fact that St. Pauli are the strongest home team and they haven't lost a match yet to date. That makes for 8 wins and 1 draw in 9 games. On the other side, however, Paderborn are the only team that has not lost an away game this season. Their performance on the road has been outstanding and we believe they have a good chance for something here. In the head-to-head games, Paderborn have always been the stronger team, so we feel like there is enough proof to believe that they stand a chance.
Alternative Corners – Under 11
This will be a game with loads of chances or with few chances – it all depends on the defensive play, but we do not expect loads of corners. St. Pauli have taken an average of 5.60 corners per game this season, which is not the greatest number. On the other side, Paderborn have been even worse in this aspect of the game and have taken an average of just 3.20 corners per game.
