Bundesliga Betting Tips

Key tips on successful betting on the German Bundesliga.


Introduction of the Bundesliga

The Bundesliga is the championship first division in Germany. Considered to be the second best ranked league in Europe according to UEFA, the Bundesliga contains 18 teams seeking to become the German champions. Concluded over 34 days, the top three automatically qualify for the Champions League and the 4th best qualifies for the Champions League playoffs. The 5th and 6th qualify for the Europa League with the last two teams getting relegated to the second division. The 16th-ranked club plays a playoff against a lower division club in order to remain among the elite. Last year Bayern Munich were crowned champions, with Leipzig and Dortmund in second and third.

The stats of the Bundesliga

Before you bet on the Bundesliga, you have to have in mind a given: the goals do not stop raining in Germany! With a steady improvement, the average of goals reached 2.86 last season, the third best ratio of the major European championships. A strong statistic, which is also validated by the number of victories with several goals of deviations. Last year, 36% of the matches had 2 or more victories , 16% for those of 3 or more. Clear numbers, which should direct you towards this kind of bets often offered with very nice odds in bookmakers. Believe in our experts


Avalanche of goals after the 75th

Another thing to consider is the crazy number of goals scored in the last quarter of the hour. For many seasons it was around 20%, but last season was even more flagrant with 1 goal out of 4 registered after the 75th minute of play . If you are lacking in inspiration there is no doubt, bet on this type of proposal that is often around 1.90 at the best sports betting sites.

Betting on the Bundesliga

The Bundesliga showed over the years the importance of playing at home. Between the packed stadiums and the atmosphere, it puts pressure on the opposing team. Last year, 48% of the matches ended in a victory for the locals , against 26% for a victory against the visitors. If you do not know how to decide between two teams in your Bundesliga prognosis, bet on the local formations, given fairly reliable.

The other tip we can give you is do not hesitate to bet on surprises from time to time . Whether it is at the time of the Champions League or at the time of the Europa League, it will not be uncommon to see some big club fall to a small team. For example last year, the Hertha Berlin lost 8 times against less well ranked teams, Dortmund four times and Bayern twice. You will find some nice odds over the season.

The forces present for 2017-2018

It was Bayern Munich who won the title last year for the fifth time in a row. An undisputed dominance that should continue this season, despite the progress of competition. But what will be behind it? Will Leipzig confirm his new status? Can Dortmund and Hoffenheim again be dangerous outsiders for the Bavarians? A whole bunch of uncertainties to take into account before betting on German football.

Bayern too strong

Between a skeleton that does not move too much and a group reinforced significantly during the summer transfer, the club led by Carlo Ancelotti should live another quiet season in Germany. Before the start of the season, the best bookmakers offered the small odds of 1/7, a sign that does not deceive. Kinglsey Coman, Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer seem far too much to expect anything but a sixth crown in a row.

The Dortmund query

After a third place finish last year, the leaders of the BVB decided to replace Tuchel by Peter Bosz, former coach of Ajax. While it is too early to see whether this strategy will bear fruit, it has the merit of being interesting and intriguing. The performances of Dembélé, Pulisic and Gonzalo Castro will be decisive. If Marco Reus and Mario Götze are spared the wounds and return to the top, it will take a lot to beat Borussia. Before the start of the championship, their rating for the title was 7/1.

Leipzig, Hoffenheim and Berlin not so far

Like last year, the RB Leipzig will have to be taken very seriously by the German clubs, even if their presence in the Champions League could penalise them. Timo Werner and the other nuggets will have to know how to play on every board. Side Hoffenheim, the season should especially depend on the collective performance of the team, strength first last season. Hertha Berlin, as well as Cologne, will have to rely on frames in order to continue their progress.
