Mainz have had a strange 2021-22 season and they currently sit tenth in the German Bundesliga standings, with Bo Svensson’s team having looked really strong at the MEWA Arena this season although it’s been a different story on the road. They will enjoy home comforts for this clash against a Hoffenheim who are slightly higher than them in the table.

Hoffenheim could yet be among Champions League betting odds next season and they will have aspirations to finish the German Bundesliga season strongly. Sebastian Hoeneß’s side are currently seventh in the standings although they are within touching distance of Union Berlin who sit in fourth place, with Bayer Leverkusen also sitting ducks a place higher.

Can Mainz Continue Strong Bundesliga Home Form?

Mainz have been Jekyll and Hyde when it has come to their home and away form in the Bundesliga this season. They have been among the best Bundesliga betting tips when it has come to home games considering that they have won six, drawn three and lost just one of their ten matches played in front of their own supporters.

When you compare this with the fact that they have lost eight out of ten matches on the road, there’s a real distinction between the two sets of form. We are interested to see whether Mainz are a good football bet to keep a clean sheet considering their incredible defensive home stats which means they have only conceded five goals in total.

Indeed, Mainz’s last three games have all seen the Bundesliga bet of the home team winning to nil come in, with a 3-0 victory against Wolfsburg being followed by a 4-0 triumph against Hertha Berlin and there was more recently a 1-0 win against Bochum, so there is merit in siding with the home team here.

Hoffenheim Bidding to Make the Champions League Spots

For several years and under different managers, Hoffenheim have always had a reputation for being a high-scoring team and things have been no different during the 2021-22 season. 1899 have scored 41 goals in 20 games played and they will look to continue their attacking approach in a bid to finish as high up the standings as possible.

Away from home, Hoffenheim have won three, drawn two and lost five of their ten matches. It’s therefore hard to recommend them too hard for this clash and they come into this encounter off the back of three consecutive defeats which will have left the manager with plenty of food for thought.

There was a 2-1 defeat away to Union Berlin which dented their Champions League hopes, while a 4-1 home reverse against Freiburg in the German Cup was sandwiched by a 3-2 home defeat against Borussia Dortmund and the hope is that they can start outscoring the opposition.

What Are the Best Bets for Mainz v Hoffenheim?

When it comes to BTTS football betting, then Hoffenheim have often been a popular German Bundesliga betting tip. After all, their attacking approach will often see BTTS Yes happen and there’s also the prospect of considering Over 2.5 Goals on the Total Goals betting market where we need three or more goals to be scored along the way.When it comes to the full-time result betting market, it’s not easy to call although Mainz’s excellent defensive record possibly makes them the best football betting tip here and it might be worth considering Mainz to win and both teams to score considering that the Hoffenheim defence does not look robust.
