Soccer Betting Preview for the DFB-Pokal Round of 16: Tuesday and Wednesday Matches

FSV Mainz +126 vs Vfl Bochum +186

  • When: Tuesday, Jan. 18

Bochum has a single win in their last 5 to go along with 3 losses and a draw. Mainz shows 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5.

Mainz’s losses were to Bundesliga squads Bayern, Frankfurt, and Leipzig. One of the road team’s wins happened against Bochum. However, this is on Bochum’s pitch. The home squad is worth a look. 

Soccer Pick: Bochum  

Borussia Dortmund -1 ½ +117 vs FC St. Pauli +1 ½ -161

  • When: Tuesday, Jan. 18

Dortmund has won 3-of-4, which is the main reason they’re such a huge favorite to win this. All 3 victories impressed. 

On Dec. 15, Dortmund beat Greuther Furth 3-0. Then on Jan. 8, Dortmund bested Frankfurt 3-2. Jan. 14 saw a 5-1 victory over Freiburg. St. Pauli has no shot to keep this close. Dortmund should easily cover the handicap. 

Soccer Pick: Dortmund  

Hansa Rostock +2 ½ -169 vs RB Leipzig -2 ½ +122 

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 19

Leipzig is back to their best form. RBL has won 2 straight, 4-1 versus Mainz and 2-0 against Stuttgart.

Hansa gets 2 ½ goals on the handicap, but it may not be enough. In their last on Jan. 15, Hanover 96 beat Hansa Rostock 1-0. Hamburg SV dominated Hansa 3-0 on Dec. 12. Leipzig covers. 

Soccer Pick: RB Leipzig  

Monchengladbach -175 vs Hannover 96 +369

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 19

At first glance, Gladbach should have no trouble beating German 2 League team Hannover 96. But a closer look reveals the home dog has a big shot to win this.

Hannover has won 3-of-4. The lone loss was to 2021 Bundesliga squad Werder Bremen. Monchengladbach has lost 3-of-5. So even though Gladbach upset Bayern on Jan. 7, they’re a play against because the road chalk tends to play down to their opponent’s level. 

Soccer Pick: Hannover 96 

SC Freiburg +207 vs TSG Hoffenheim +107

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 19

Freiburg’s form suggests they lose this match. Dortmund absolutely pummeled the road underdog 5-1 in Freiburg’s last.

Hoffenheim shows 2 wins, 2 draws and a loss. The loss, which happened in their last, a 2-1 game versus Union Berlin, could have gone either way. Give Hoffenheim the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Hoffenheim 

Union Berlin +106 vs Hertha BSC +154

  • When: Wednesday, Jan. 19

Hertha isn’t in great form. The home underdog has lost 2, drawn once, and grabbed a victory in their last 4.

The win was against Dortmund, though, which implies Hertha has a shot in this. Berlin heads to Hertha after a tough 2-1 win against Hoffenheim. Union won the last head-to-head. But Hertha offers overlay odds, making the home squad the play. 

Soccer Pick: Hertha BSC
