We had a go at getting a half-time / full time football bet in last week as the stats suggested that there was a possibility in the Southampton – Wolves match. As it happened Wolves did peg back Southampton, albeit in the first half, before the Saints rallied to take the 3 points.
Most weeks there isn’t really a natural contender for such a bet so we leave it alone but as luck would have it – or otherwise depending on the result – another possibility has arisen this weekend.
The basis for this is pretty straightforward. We’re looking for a team that consistently throws away leads to be facing a team that has a habit of fighting back: bottlers v battlers as it were.
This week it’s Hertha Berlin v Hannover. Both teams have lost their last five matches but traditionally Hertha have been monsters at home regularly giving Bayern and Dortmund a run for their money. Hannover are essentially relegated but while they still have a chance they have to give it a go. They’re no strangers to opening the scoring but holding on to a lead is their issue and no team has recovered from going behind more often than Hertha Berlin at home.
