Betting on the Bundesliga always proves to be a pleasure for fans of online sports betting. Considered to be one of the most spectacular football championships in the world the Bundesliga is the first division of German football, and pits 18 of the best teams in the country against each other in round-trip fixtures across 34 matchdays. At the end of the season, the team that finishes at the top of the Bundesliga table is crowned the champions of Germany, while those that finish in between 1st and 4th place qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The two teams that finish in 5th and 6th place qualify for the Europa League, while the clubs that finish in the bottom two are relegated to the second division of German football. The team that finishes in 15th place enters the Bundesliga Playoffs, where they will go head-to-head with the team that finished 3rd in Bundesliga 2 to try to retain their place in Germany’s top football division. All things considered there’s a lot at stake over the course of a Bundesliga season, which is all the better for your Bundesliga predictions all year round!
In the Bundesliga,, it is of course the big clubs that are the most enticing to follow. How can we not mention Bayern Munich, who hold the record for the most titles won in Germany’s top football division? With world-class players, a top-notch Allianz Arena and die-hard supporters, year after year Bayern have the assets they need to claim the title at the end of the season. Every year bookmakers tip the Bavarians as Bundesliga favorites, while sides such as Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Leverkusen and Hoffenheim are also expected to be in the running for each season’s title race. So many high class football clubs, which makes Bundesliga predictions a favourite amongst European sports bettors.
In comparison with the five major European leagues, like the Serie A the Bundesliga attracts less media coverage than its equivalent in England and Spain. That doesn’t mean that the league isn’t as entertaining - in fact more than 50% of all matches in the last 10 seasons of the Bundesliga saw over 2.5 goals, which is a higher figure than any of its European counterparts. This trend was also validated last season, as no less than 55% of all matches ended with at least three goals scored. If you want to place a reliable bet on the Bundesliga, don’t hesitate to try the ‘Over 2.5’ goals market for games of the 2019/20 season.
Another important figure for you to be aware of is the number of home wins that are recorded in the German football championship. As you know the German public are one of the most passionate in the world, and will drive their home team on every weekend as if it is their last match. This might seem like a trivial factor at first, but the stats don’t lie. With over 40% of matches last season ending with a victory for the home side, the advantage of playing in front of your own crowd cannot be underestimated. If you’re hesitant about betting on a meeting that seems to be almost level, try a prediction on the success of the hosts.
Finally, you should also know that it will be worth your while to chance a bet on the top scorers. Season after season, the forwards in the Bundesliga continue to prove their worth to their teams - in the 2018/19 season a total of 24 players reached the 10 goal mark, which averages out at over one player per club! If you want to add some variety to your Bundesliga predictions in the upcoming season, try your hand at a bet on these famous top scorers. Often offered at odds of 3/1 and above at the bookmakers, it could prove to be an opportunity to earn some substantial gains, particularly when you consider that an average of 3.18 goals were scored per game in the 2018/19 edition of the Bundesliga, one of the best averages in Europe.
As in every season of the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich will be the favourites to win the upcoming 2019/20 edition. After taking home their 7th consecutive crown last year, the Bavarian giants have acquired reinforcements to kickstart their upcoming campaign - even if Dortmund or Leipzig should try to have their say in the title race, Bayern will still be the team to follow. Much the same as every year of the German football championship.
