Bundesliga Presentation - Football
The Bundesliga is the first division of German football, and is considered by UEFA to be the fourth best league in Europe. Pitting 18 teams against each other in a battle to become the Champions of German football, 38 match days are played over the course of the season - with each team playing each other twice. At the end of the season, the top four teams receive qualification for the Champions League, while the two teams that finish in fifth and sixth earn a place in the Europa League. The two teams that finish at the bottom of the table descend to the second division, while the team that finishes in sixteenth faces off against the Bundesliga 2 champions in a bid to retain their place in top-tier German football. All in all, a format that makes the Bundesliga one of the most exciting competitions in the world of sports betting.
Bundesliga experts predictions
Before betting on the Bundesliga, the most important fact to keep in mind is this: it’s raining goals in Germany! Constantly improving season by season, the goals per game average peaked at 3.18 in 2018/19 - a strong statistic to consider, which could easily prompt you to include some goal betting in your Bundesliga predictions. There is another figure which backs this trend up, regarding the number of meetings which saw at least three goals. In the past season, 54.7% of matches validated the bet ‘Over 2.5 goals’, which averages out at more than one in two games! The odds on this betting market are generally quite high (between 4/5 and 2/1), and make for an interesting wager for the 2019/20 season of the Championship - especially when you consider that this trend has remained constant over the course of many recent seasons.
In the same spirit, it would also be a good idea to lean towards the ‘Both Teams to Score’ market on the Bundesliga, as last season saw both the hosts and the visitors hit the target in 52.3% of matches. The odds offered by bookmakers on this market are usually generous, so don’t neglect it for your Bundesliga 2019/20 predictions.
Then, to talk more about the 1X2 market, know that the hosts are generally victorious in the German Bundesliga. If we consider last year’s statistics, we can see that 45% of games resulted in a home victory, compared with 24% ending in a draw and 31% seeing an away win. In the German football championship it will be necessary to focus your predictions on the home side, especially in a fixture between two sides of similar quality and ranking - the advice of the experts.
Some other interesting information to take account of, as it could benefit your earnings on the 2019/20 season, is the volume of goals scored in the last quarter of Bundesliga games. As in the last five seasons, the 2018/19 edition of the Bundesliga confirmed this - 24% of all goals scored came after the 75’ mark. When this market is generally proposed at odds of 9/10, it would be a shame to miss out during the upcoming season.
Finally, the last important statistic to know for your Bundesliga predictions is that bets on the goalscorers will not be such a longshot. When we look at the rankings, it is the same players that we see time and time again - from Lewandowski to Timo Werner, Kévin Volland to Marco Reus. Last season, 24 players hit the 10-goal mark, so if you have a lack of inspiration for your Bundesliga bets turning towards the goal scorer market may be a good option.
How to predict Bundesliga matches
To keep you informed on the parameters to consider beyond the statistics, we will now discuss some other key considerations for your Bundesliga bets. First of all, it will be necessary to evaluate the form of the star players of each club concerned by your prediction. Take, for example, a match between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. If the likes of Reus or Alcacer are expected to be absent from the BVB side, then it might be best to favour Schalke in the upcoming fixture. This applies to any Bundesliga bet no matter which teams are involved.
Secondly, it will be necessary to consider the real stake of the match for both teams involved. Do both have the motivation to win? A bet on the ‘Over 3.5’ market will, for example, have a lower chance of being validated in a game between two teams playing defensively, than between two clubs having nothing to play at the end of the season and who favour giving their spectators a show. Before betting on the Bundesliga don’t forget to observe the season table, as it will give an indication of which clubs need to put in a good performance in their next game.
Finally, the third point to remember is to always compare Bundesliga odds before finalising your predictions. Whether it is Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg, Werder Bremen or Hoffenheim that you want to back, you will be able to find different odds values amongst each of the bookmakers on the online market. To always take advantage of the best available odds, all you have to do is register an account at all of the top online betting sites. To consider an example, say that you want to bet on the ‘Over 3.5’ goals market in a game between Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen. It will be much more beneficial for you to bet on an odds value of 5/2 offered by William Hill than those of 7/2 available at Bet365. In the long run there could be a difference of hundreds of euros at stake, so what is the sense of skipping this step.
How to predict Bundesliga table
In addition to betting on each match of the German football championship, you can also place a wager on the final standings of the Bundesliga 2019/20. The interest of this market is simple, to provide excitement over the course of the season, and significant gains in the long run. Some of the outright markets that you can try your luck on include the Bundesliga winner, the teams to finish in the top four and the teams to be relegated at the end of the season. Again, the odds offered by bookmakers are considerable, so why not take you chances.
To establish reliable predictions on the Bundesliga standings, there are some simple parameters that you must consider. For example, the real motivation of each club (based on press releases by coaches, presidents, staff and club captains), the Bundesliga fixture calendar and the squad of each team will all play a role in your outright predictions. Accounting for the quality of the substitutes, reserves and youth teams of each club will be essential to be able to establish reliable predictions in the long term.
