Interesting odds development as we're getting close to kickoff. Hoffenheim now at 2.9 (also the opening odds), and I'm considering putting a bit of money on them. Unless the odds increase even more before kickoff, I'll wait a bit though and place an in-play bet.
Naldo is out and the Schalke defense will be Riether - Höwedes - Nastasic - Baba. Hoffenheim have made 3 changes: Süle, Toljan and Rupp are in the starting 11, which means there's no room for Polanski, Amiri and Wagner.
What's better than a rainy Sunday and another Schalke defeat... At least it looks like we'll be making some money on the Leipzig game.
I've got an early bet for the next round (Unibet with the highest odds on the market):
Schalke 04 vs Borussia Mönchengladbach - 1X2: 2 - Odds 3.20
If the odds doesn't decrease in the next 48 hours, I'll add some written analysis, when I'm back at the office

Odds on Gladbach and HSV slashed just hours after posting them. Gladbach is now at 2.85 (no value), HSV at 4.10 (not worth a bet either) and Mainz are at 4.40, which is still the highest on the market and worth a few pennies.
Even though it's Europa League, I'll bet one unit on this bet, as I'm pretty confident about my estimation - know a fair bit about the Austrian Bundesliga as well.
Schalke 04 vs RB Salzburg - AH Schalke -1 - Odds 2.48
