Sandhausen vs St. Pauli

2. Bundesliga Betting Odds and Predictions (3. Matchday): Will HSV stays flawless against Aue?

Big derby in Hanover!

Two game days have been completed in the 2nd Bundesliga and there is actually only one team that is at the top of the table without losing points. Ironically, the often scolded Hamburger SV underpinned its ambitions with two wins against Düsseldorf and Paderborn and got off to a perfect start.

On the third matchday, HSV will now have to deal with the runner-up from Aue in the top game at home. In addition, we can look forward to many more exciting matches in Germany’s second-highest division from Friday to Monday.

We are also looking forward to Marco Antwerp’s debut as a coach at the Würzburger Kickers, who followed the surprisingly dismissed Michael Schiele during the week. In the Franconian derby, the newcomer challenges Fürth on Sunday.


Sandhausen vs St. Pauli Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 2

On the first two matchdays, FC St. Pauli has impressively demonstrated that the necessary efficiency is in many cases far more important than football dominance. If it were up to the latter, the hamburgers would probably be there with a point or possibly no point at all. Neither in the late 2: 2 in Bochum nor in the sovereign sounding 4: 2 home win against Heidenheim, the Kiezkicker were the better team.

The situation is somewhat different at SV Sandhausen, which after a 3-2 win at home against Darmstadt and a bitter 0-1 bankruptcy against Nuremberg only posted three points on the account, but has proven that with the Hardtwäldern also in 2020 / 21 is to be expected.

Under these conditions, we break away from looking at the table of the 2nd Bundesliga and consider it extremely likely that the white-blacks will get their second home win. At the top, a 2.10 is offered for this on the three-way market, which appears profitable.

Betting Prediction: Home win
Betting Odds: 2.10

Bochum vs Osnabruck Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 2

Christian Santos is the name of the new hope for VfL Osnabrück. The native Venezuelan stands with his three goals in two games symbolic of the positive start of the purple-whites. The team of the new coach Marco Grote has four points on the account after two matchdays and has so far impressed with strong fighting, but also playfully.

However, this does not change the fact that they travel to Bochum as outsiders on Friday evening. The Ruhrpottler are among the hottest aspirants for promotion and have also started the season well with four points. If VfL hadn’t had a three-minute deep sleep on matchday one against St. Pauli, it would even be six points.

Can Bochum really rise?

In view of the very good performance in the first home game against the Kiezkicker and the undoubtedly existing quality, we assume that the Reis team will achieve the second victory. We can even imagine that success will fail with at least two goals difference.

Betting Prediction: Victory Bochum (-1.5)
Betting Odds: 3.45

Hanover vs Braunschweig Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 3

Hannover 96 started the new year with high expectations. The Kocak team remained playful so far but below their possibilities. While the 2-0 win against Karlsruhe on the first day of the match could still be booked under the category “mandatory win”, the Lower Saxony had an extremely difficult time at the Bremer Brücke in Osnabrück and lost 2-1.

In order not to speak of a false start, the Kocak team is now forced to get a three. This should also be within the realm of possibility because Braunschweig is a newcomer to the derby who has so far been without a single goal, but still with a point.

Hopes for advancement meet fears of relegation. We don’t believe in a surprise and add a “zero success” to the betting tips from the 2nd Bundesliga on matchday 3.

Betting Prediction: Hanover wins to zero
Betting Odds: 2.87

Heidenheim vs Paderborn Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 3

The most recent games of 1. FC Heidenheim and SC Paderborn were by no means lacking in spectacle. While the Red-Blue team lost 4-2 in St. Pauli, Ostwestfalen also conceded four goals at 3: 4 at home against HSV.

If you look at the approaches of both coaches, it is quite realistic that we can expect an open exchange of blows with one or the other goal on Saturday afternoon. The 1st FCH is at home to be rated at least two classes stronger than abroad; The Bundesliga relegated from Paderborn finally wants the first three after two defeats at the start.

There is therefore a lot to suggest that both teams will again take an offensive approach and play for victory. We are therefore looking at the goal market and are a little surprised that the best bookmakers offer relatively high odds on at least three goals. A 1.73 as the top odds on the over 2.5 is in any case super attractive and one of the hottest betting tips ever on the 3rd matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga.

Betting Prediction: Over 2.5Goals
Betting Odds: 1.73

Regensburg vs Karlsruhe Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 3

Although the season is only two-game days old, the Karlsruher SC is already one of the problem children in the lower house. The team of coach Christian Eichner, which was only just able to prevent relegation last year, is currently at zero points and 0: 3 goals. In terms of fighting, the appearances have been decent so far, but there is a lack of the necessary quality, especially offensively.

Since it can be assumed that the local Regensburg team will also aim for the first three after two draws, the KSC will not have much choice but to hope for switchover or standard situations from a compact defensive again. If the men from the wildlife park manage to keep zero for as long as possible, something can happen as the game progresses.

Does the KSC wall up the first point?

These tactical considerations are a clear indicator for us to place bets on the match between Regensburg and Karlsruhe that not much will happen in the first half. For a zero number in the first 45 minutes, there is a payout of three times the stake.

If you still prefer to try your luck on the three-way market, the equally reasonable odds should allude to a Jahn success. However, we do not believe in a surprising three of the table penultimate!

Betting Prediction: 0-0 at halftime
Betting Odds: 3.05

HSV vs Aue Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 4th

The top game of the 3rd matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga will take place on Sunday afternoon in Hamburg. The table leader of coach Daniel Thioune meets the again strongly started Erzgebirgler from Aue. The violets are currently in second place and already have four points on their account after two match days. Only HSV scored more points in the first two rounds of the game.

In general, the people of Hamburg seem very stable so far. The former Bundesliga dinosaur has numerous weapons at his disposal. Regardless of whether Terodde, Wintzheimer, Dudziak or Jatta – hardly anyone can fool the front runner in punto quality.

First slip for the front runner from Hamburg?

Since this was already the case in the previous year and the Hamburgers mostly failed because of their own expectations or couldn’t cope with the pressure, betting tips on HSV are usually very daring in the 2nd Bundesliga, especially since the betting providers are only very daring offer low odds on the eternal favorites from the Elbe.

The guests from Aue also have a lot of individual classes to offer in the front area. Pascal Testroet and Florian Krüger are above-average second division strikers and should therefore be in a position to pose problems for the HSV defense, which did not always seem solid on Monday in the 4: 3 success in Paderborn.

Therefore, on the 3rd matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga, we distance ourselves from the odds on the outcome of the game and instead decide that both teams will score in the top game.

Betting Prediction: Both teams to score
Betting Odds: 1.91

Würzburger Kickers vs Furth Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 4th

During the week there was already the first coach dismissal in the 2nd Bundesliga. Michael Schiele had to take his hat off at the Würzburger Kickers, even though he was celebrated as a hero about two months ago.

The release of the 42-year-old is currently causing a lot of discomfort in the environment. Vice-President Herbert, the first functionary, has already pulled the ripcord and resigned. You can’t get rid of the feeling that Felix Magath, head of soccer for the main sponsor, is doing his own thing.

Since the fans and probably also the players are not satisfied with the incomprehensible step of the change of coach, it must be doubted whether the Kickers under the leadership of their successor Marco Antwerp will get the first points this season.

We would answer this question with “no”. Too much restlessness in the club, too little quality in the team, and an opponent who wants to get the first three after two draws at the beginning speak for an away win for the clover in the Franconian duel in Würzburg.

Betting Prediction: Fürth
Betting Odds: 2.60

Kiel vs Dusseldorf Germany Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 4th

Two highly traded teams face each other on the weekend in the far north. Holstein Kiel meets Fortuna Düsseldorf. The pressing machine from the Förde is currently one point ahead of the Rhinelanders with four points, who posted a lackluster home win against newly-promoted Würzburg in the previous week.

But now the omens are different. Due to the high pressing line of KSV Holstein, Fortuna will probably get more rooms in the depth, which will definitely benefit the Rösler team. If the Bundesliga relegated team manages to be resistant when it comes to pressing in the build-up of the game, we even consider an away win to be possible.


Betting Prediction: DNB (2)
Betting Odds: 2.00

Nuremberg vs Darmstadt Betting Odds and Predictions

Date: October 5th, 2020

The last match before the international break will be played on Monday evening by Nuremberg and Darmstadt. Two big names with high ambitions meet. Who can meet the expectations placed in them faster?

Nuremberg is currently still having problems implementing the interesting ideas of the new coach Robert Klauß. Neither the draw in Regensburg nor the happy home win against Sandhausen did the men from Valznerweiher really convince. Nevertheless, the four points collected are of course absolutely satisfactory.

Klauss vs Anfang – two trainers among themselves

Markus Anfang will be less happy with the yield on the first two matchdays. His lilies are currently in 14th place with just one point. The very offensive game system with inverse full-backs and extremely high eights has not yet worked as desired. At the same time, it is quite prone to conceding goals.

At the end of the 3rd matchday in the 2nd Bundesliga, we, therefore, recommend tips that the two teams neutralize each other in the initial phase and that the encounter only picks up speed later on. Both coaches will have prepared their respective teams in the best possible way for the opponent and therefore put the primary focus on their own goal security. More goals after changing sides are definitely realistic.

Betting Prediction: More goals in 2nd half
Betting Odds: 2.00
