STATS expert Stats Bet (@statsbet) takes an analytical look at Friday night’s Bundesliga action, pinpointing the value bets according to the numbers.
Mainz v Eintracht Frankfurt | Friday 27th October 2017, 19:30 | BT Sport
Mainz host a strong looking Eintracht Frankfurt side in the Friday night fixture from the Bundesliga and I think both teams have a great chance of scoring with Both Teams To Score offered at 28/29 (188BET).
Rouven Schroder’s hosts boast fantastic shot ratio statistics at the Opel Arena thus far, with the seventh best shot ratio return and the fourth best shots on-target ratio figures.
Mainz impressive home efforts
In their first five home fixtures, Mainz have amassed a total of 70 shots, scoring nine goals at an average of 1.80 goals per-game. The O’Fives have scored in all bar one of those encounters but also managed just a sole shutout.
With a current xG supremacy of 1.15 against Friday’s opponents, we should expect the home side to notch at least once.
Niko Kovac will be very pleased with his team’s start to the season, sitting seventh having collected 14 points (W4-D2-L3). The Eagles have proven to be strong on the road, picking up 10 points from a possible 15 and scoring in all bar one of their away days.
The visitors can also lay claim to impressive shot ratio trends. Eintracht are rated seventh in shot ratio standings away and 11th in the shots on-target ratio rankings.
With a current xG supremacy of 1.28 they should expect to get on the scoreboard. And seeing as the data is highlighting both sides as strong performers in the final third, plus BTTS banking in four of the past five meetings between the two, backing a repeat at 28/29 (188BET) appeals on Friday night.
