Bundesliga prediction - Football

The Bundesliga is one of Europe's top leagues, alongside the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

Winner prediction: who will win the Bundesliga?

“Bundesliga

This 2023/24 edition of the Bundesliga promises to be particularly exciting. The stakes are high at every level. Indeed, it's not just the title that is likely to be the focus of attention in Germany. There's also the battle for Europe, with the race for the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League. The 18 teams in German football's elite have plenty to keep them busy throughout the season, as do those betting on the matches.

It's been a phenomenal season from Bayer Leverkusen who have already secured the Bundesliga championship with a number of games still to play. Their dominance cannot be overstated as they are yet to lose not only in the Bundesliga, but across all competitions on their fixture list, accruing an absurd 45 match unbeaten run and counting. The result is a massive 14-point lead as we head into the final stretch of the season. It marks Bayer Leverkusen's first ever league title, as they can now finally put to rest their former undesirable "Neverkusen" moniker. It also saw Bayern Munich's reign of 11 consecutive league titles come to an end in what has been a hugely disappointing year for Thomas Tuchel's side.

Bundesliga Top 4 prediction: who will qualify for the Champions League?

Bundesliga prediction - Top 4

The next Champions League will be played under a completely new format for the 2024/25 edition. That doesn't change much for the Bundesliga clubs, however. The teams finishing in the top 4 places in the German league will qualify directly for the group stages. Betting on the Bundesliga is not just about placing wagers on who will win the title. For the Champions League places, our prediction is as follows: Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Stuttgart and RB Leipzig!

Despite being in the semi-finals of the 2023/24 Champions League, Borussia Dortmund could be at risk of missing out on next season's edition. They sit fifth on 57 points, two points behind fourth-place Leipzig and six points behind surprise third-place team Stuttgart. It's been an outstanding season for Stuttgart who have been one of the biggest surprises during the campaign. This is a side that finished 16th last year and narrowly avoided the drop by surviving the relegation/promotion playoff. Sebastian Hoeneß deserves plenty of accolades for the way he has turned things around and has his Die Roten side on the verge of a spot in the Champions League for the first time in 15 years.

Which Bundesliga clubs will Finish in the Top 5?

“Top 5 Bundesliga prediction”

The winner of the DFB-Pokal qualifies for the Europa League group stage. But they are not alone! There is also the possibility of reaching the group stage via the Bundesliga. To do so, a club needs to finish 5th in the Bundesliga. It promises to be a fierce battle. In addition to the aforementioned Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt, Union Berlin and SC Freiburg will certainly be in the running.

At this stage, it's all but guaranteed who will be in the top five positions with four games remaining in the league season. Fifth-placed Dortmund sit 12 points clear of sixth-place Eintracht Frankfurt, meaning it will be between the top five to determine which team has to settle for a Europa League spot in the final few matchdays.

Which Clubs Will Finish in the Top Six?

Top 6 Bundesliga prediction

Qualification for the Europa Conference League depends on the winner of the DFB-Pokal. If the team that wins the trophy has already qualified for the Champions League or Europa League via the league, 6th place in the Bundesliga means a place in the group stages and 7th place means a place in the Europa Conference League play-offs. If the winner of the DFB-Pokal is not European, then 6th place qualifies for the play-offs.

To finish in the top 6 and secure a place in the Europa Conference League, after the 5 teams mentioned above, we give an advantage to Eintracht Frankfurt. This team has been able to shine in European competitions in recent years. And they look set to continue doing so in the future. Our prediction for the top 6: Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Stuttgart, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bundesliga relegation prediction: which clubs will be relegated?

Bundesliga relegation prediction

It's not just Europe that will be at the center of attention in all Bundesliga matches! A number of teams will be fighting to avoid relegation to Bundesliga 2, with the bottom two teams being automatically relegated. The team finishing 16th in the Bundesliga will face a two-legged play-off against the team finishing 3rd in the 2.Bundesliga. Many clubs are likely to feature in the relegation battle. Our view is that Koln, Darmstadt and Bochum finish in the bottom three!

Bundesliga top scorer prediction: which player will score the most goals?

prediction-ldc-02092023-5

This is another popular betting market. Bookmakers will offer odds on who will be the Bundesliga's top scorer. The aim is simple: to find the player who will score the most goals in the German league in 2023/24. With Harry Kane now at Bayern Munich, he's been blasting in the goals this season and is the runaway favorite to claim the golden boot. Kane has 33 goals scored with four games remaining, giving him and eight-goal lead over Stuttgart's Serhou Guirassy and a 10-goal lead over RB Leipzig's Loïs Openda.

Beginner bettors - how does the Bundesliga work?

The Bundesliga is one of Europe's top leagues, with 18 teams. The country's top clubs play  from August 2023 to May 2024 with 34 matchdays and 306 games. Each team plays twice in this German league: once at home and once away. A winter break is taken in Germany, between December and January. It's time for the various teams to take a breather and get back on track for the second half of the season.

In the Bundesliga, there are several important places for the teams when the final standings are known:

  • The team finishing in first place is crowned Bundesliga champion and qualifies for the Champions League.
  • The teams in 2nd to 4th place join the champion in the Champions League.
  • The team finishing in 5th place qualifies for the next Europa League group stage.
  • The team finishing 6th qualifies for the Europa Conference League play-offs, unless the winner of the DFB-Pokal is in the top 5. In that case, they qualify for the Europa League group stage.
  • The team in 7th place can join the Europa Conference League play-offs, if the winner of the DFB-Pokal is in the top 6.
  • The team in 16th place must play off against the 3rd-placed team in the 2. Bundesliga.
  • Teams finishing 17th and 18th drop straight down to the lower tier

There's a lot at stake in the German soccer championship. So it's not surprising that punters bet on the Bundesliga every weekend.

Bundesliga betting - how to make good soccer predictions on a German league match?

Bundesliga match predictions

When betting on the Bundesliga, it's important to take all the odds into account. There are many factors to take into account when placing a bet. Having followed the Bundesliga for many years, SportyTrader gives you the best way to bet on the German league and make the best Bundesliga predictions for the coming season:

  • Favour German teams playing at home
  • Don't hesitate to play Under Over in the Bundesliga
  • Take into account the style of play of both teams 
  • Don't always rely on the Bundesliga standings at the end of the season
  • Always keep yourself informed about the potential eleven of both teams in Germany.

With these 5 tips, the editors of SportyTrader have already given you a good basis on which to prepare your bets. In the next few paragraphs, we'll describe each point in a little more detail.

Favour German home teams

Bundesliga betting tips

The Bundesliga can be a particularly indecisive championship. Every weekend, there are numerous fixtures where it's not always easy to pick out a clear favorite. So how do you choose your 1N2 bets? We advise you to favour the home teams. Last season, teams playing in front of their home fans won 48% of their games. A very important statistic, given that there was almost a 50/50 chance of winning a bet on a victory for Team 1.

And it's a detail that can be very important when two teams are vying for a place in Europe or a place in the UEFA Europa League. While Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are often the favorites, even away from home, the situation is different for the other teams. Let's imagine a game between Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen, both vying for a place in the top 4. Eintracht Frankfurt will have a big advantage, as they'll be playing in front of their home crowd.

Don't hesitate to play Under Over in the Bundesliga

Betting on the final result is not the only option at UK bookmakers. They offer a wide range of markets, including under/over. This is a bet that allows you to wager on the number of goals. And it can quickly become indispensable in the Bundesliga. It's one of the leagues with the highest goal average. Last season, it averaged almost 3.18 goals per game! A very substantial figure, which may give you some ideas when it comes to placing your bets...

It could be very profitable to turn to "more than 2.5 goals in a match" bets. The odds are often very tempting and can often be passed in Germany. To stack the odds in your favor, it's a good idea to find out how well the two teams are defending and attacking. When both teams are used to scoring goals and conceding them, you've got a good chance of winning!

Take into account the style of play of both teams

Bundesliga tips

It's not always the first thing you think about when placing a bet. We often tend to base our analysis on form and standings. But don't forget to ask about the style of play of the two teams. There may be a pattern or a mentality that jeopardises your bet on a BuLi match.

You find out that the favourite is struggling against a low block. And on his next matchday, he'll be facing a team that's playing for survival and tends to defend throughout the match. Even if they are favoured by the bookmakers and look superior on paper, they could still find it hard to break through. For some, it's a three-man defence that will cause him problems. You need to gather as much information as possible to prepare your bet in the best possible way!

Don't always trust the Bundesliga standings at the end of the season

A very important factor to consider! What's at stake in the match can have a considerable impact on the bet. It's always a good idea to find out what's at stake before you place your bet. Here's a concrete example to illustrate what we mean. Bayern Munich are well ahead in the Bundesliga. At the end of the season, they host a team from the bottom of the table. That's when the outsider can spring a surprise, as they have more to play for plus Bayern might not field a full-strength side.

This can also be the case with the teams in the bottom half of the table, who have little to play for with several rounds to go. They'll arrive with much less motivation. And that's clearly a factor. You'll need to keep a close eye on this aspect in the final days of the season, to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Always keep yourself informed about the potential line-up of the two teams in Germany.

Bundesliga Prediction guide - Soccer

You're probably already used to this tip if you regularly bet on soccer. You know better than anyone that an absence can change everything. Borussia Dortmund won't look the same without Sébastien Haller, just as Bayern Munich won't be as formidable in the absence of Joshua Kimmich.

So it's always worth keeping an eye on the two teams' potential starting eleven. Especially if one of the teams is playing in Europe, for example, a few days later, the coach may decide to rotate the team. It can be very interesting to follow the pre-match press conferences so as not to miss any information.

All these tips are taken into account by our team of experts when making Bundesliga predictions. But that's not all, as it also draws on a wealth of other statistical data to provide you with all the information you need.

Our Bundesliga betting tips and predictions are ideal for first-time bettors. You'll have everything you need to prepare your bets! Of course, only you can make the final decision.

What not to do when betting on the Bundesliga

We've already looked at the tips that will help you put all the odds on your side when betting on the Bundesliga. But there are also some bad habits you'll have to put aside if you want to win in the long term:

  • Relying solely on Bundesliga match odds
  • Betting live to try and make up for lost time
  • Taking advantage of odds of less than 1.10 to round up your total.
  • Systematically bet on your favourite club in Germany
  • Don't ask about boosted odds before betting
  • Focus only on 1N2 bets
  • Betting more than 5% of your capital on a single Bundesliga bet

Beginner bettors are not always inclined to follow this advice when embarking on their first venture into the world of Bundesliga betting. However, you'll soon get used to following them to the letter. It's the best way to increase your bankroll on a regular basis.

Bundesliga : Frequently Asked Questions

In the UK, all German Bundesliga matches in the 2023-2024 season are broadcast on Sky Sports. A subscription or NOW TV day pass is required to do so.
The official start of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga season is set for August 18, 2023. The championship will end on May 18, 2024!
Last year, Bayern Munich would have earned 76.47 million euros as German champions! Runner-up Borussia Dortmund would have pocketed 74.97 million euros.
There are 34 matchdays in total in the Bundesliga! In fact, since the championship comprises 18 teams (as in Ligue 1 from this 2023-2024 season), that's four less than are played in the Premier League, La Liga or Serie A. Each team meets the 17 others home and away, thus playing a total of 34 games.
Bayern Munich is Germany's most successful club, with 33 Bundesliga titles. Far ahead of second-placed FC Nuremberg with 9 Bundesliga titles. In third place are Borussia Dortmund and their 8 Bundesliga titles.
Borussia Dortmund were last crowned German champions in 2011-2012, when they finished 8 points ahead of runners-up Bayern Munich. Since then, it's been relatively straightforward: the Bavarian club has won every Bundesliga title! Last year, fans of the yellow-and-black club had hope right to the end, but when all that was needed was to win the final home match against Mainz. However, those dreams faded as they went 2-0 down. A 2-2 draw was the final result but that gave the title to Bayern who won their final fixture.
