Bundesliga Betting Tips

Our Bundesliga betting tips and predictions page caters to everything involving Germany’s top tier and how you can get involved with betting on it. Whether it’s our win treble, our Euro Acca or our win accumulator, you’ll find that German football fixtures often feature, and while we’re interested in the concept of incorporating any outcome we fancy, it’s usually the Bundesliga where we find fixtures that are worth considering for our bets, often even going as far as using German matches for our other football tips including over 2.5 goals, both teams to score, and both teams to score in both halves, with it all depending on the teams playing.

Germany is regarded as one of the strongest European countries when it comes to betting on football, and this is due to the style of play we see as well as the investment its seen over the years. Spanish La Liga and the Italian Serie A sit alongside the German Bundesliga for worthy leagues outside of England in terms of placing football bets, and while French Ligue 1 begins to set a bigger stamp through the rise of Paris Saint Germain, the Bundesliga reigns as one of the historically most enthralling football leagues across the globe.

We advise our loyal followers to refer to this page before betting on the Bundesliga, as we include all of the useful information on how to enhance your bets through insight surrounding German football. This isn’t where you’ll find our Bundesliga betting tips, but this is only due to the fact that we form our bets based on what we think will happen rather than sectioning them off depending on each individual football league. In deciding to operate in this way, our bets are less forced and possess a stronger chance of landing successfully.

We include a range of Premier League selections on our tips pages, you can find them here:

2018/19 Bundesliga season

A fierce fight for the Bundesliga title was active throughout the season, with Borussia Dortmund looking more likely to be crowned champions halfway into the term, only for various shortcomings to allow Bayern Munich to eventually leapfrog them in the table. Bayern Munich were lacklustre compared to past years but claiming the Bundesliga title as well as the DFB-Pokal gave Niko Kovac additional time after only taking over from Jupp Heynckes last summer.

In a season where Bayern Munich weren’t hitting their usual standard, Borussia Dortmund pushed to capitalise, Lucien Favre leading a formidable fight for the title in his first term at the club, only to fall short of top place in the final few weeks of the term, not helped by a scattering of injuries to key players. It ended up only being a two-point gap that had Bayern pipping Dortmund to the post, but it’s a sign of things to come as Borussia Dortmund look to improve upon their squad for an even more threatening challenge next season.

Both RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen deservedly took the two remaining Champions League places, and while Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg sealed the two Europa League places, Eintracht Frankfurt shockingly could only make it to seventh after proving themselves as being one of the deadliest attacking outfits in Europe. Disappointment hit Hannover 96 and Nurnberg, who were relegated, and VfB Stuttgart rolled the dice in dropping into the relegation play-off place, only to lose to Union Berlin and result in the second division. Robert Lewandowski was once again named Bundesliga Top Scorer after netting twenty-two times, beating Borussia Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer by four goals.

Betting on the Bundesliga

Just like with any recognised football league in the world, you’ll find perks to betting on Bundesliga tips due to trends that you won’t find elsewhere. Regular features within German football might not be seen as frequently in Italy, Spain or France, just like how a lot of the selling points from those leagues don’t typically appear in Germany. It would be fair to admit that teams, players and even the weather can also play a part in how each football fixture plays out, but just like how we usually see a more aggressive game in lower divisions, Germany also has its trends to abide by.

Short prices are handed to the more dominant teams in Europe. We see this with Barcelona and Real Madrid in Spain, with Paris Saint Germain in France, and with Juventus in Italy, so it’s the same situation in Germany with Bayern Munich. Borussia Dortmund are often similar, but the constant monopoly over the Bundesliga from Bayern leads a lot of punters to getting behind handicaps rather than the match result in an attempt to boost the odds they’re getting. If you’re choosing to bet on Borussia Dortmund, predicting Dortmund to win and both teams to score comes with a larger price, and it tends to be a worthwhile market to consider in itself, as teams so rarely hold clean sheets in the Bundesliga.

Working within a formula for your own Bundesliga tips doesn’t always go entirely to plan, but there are a lot of trends that could pre-empt finding value in what you bet on. Defensive efforts from Hoffenheim and Hertha Berlin make them difficult teams to face, meaning that although more dangerous sides might score past them, defeating them away from home is a far larger challenge. It’s the same when considering the attacking firepower of RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, who don’t often carry out a challenge for the title, but they regularly score in high numbers.

History of the Bundesliga

Semi-pro football was introduced in 1949 to put an end to a time where German football was played at an amateur level over separated regions. This reduced the number of regions to five, leading to a situation where the winners of all five regions would take part in a set of playoff fixtures, resulting in an official final to decide the national championship winner. Lots of talk over a proper professional league during the 1950s opened up the possibility of a more new-look system being put in place, and it prompted East Germany into creating the DS-Oberliga, which was the first version of a fully-functioning football league, even including relegation places.

Witnessing the national team’s 1-0 defeat to Yugoslavia in the 1962 World Cup was one disappointment too many, forcing through the creation of the Bundesliga in 1962 in Dortmund. Stubborn football club officials from within the original regional league structure made it difficult to get everyone involved immediately, as clubs throughout the country refused to get involved. Eventually, rules were put in place for the most successful teams from the regional divisions to find promotion to the newly-formed Bundesliga, meaning that all of Eintracht Braunschweig, Werder Bremen, Hamburger SV, Borussia Dortmund, FC Koln, MSV Duisberg, Preussen Munster, Schalke, FC Kaiserlautern, FC Saarbrucken, Eintracht Frankfurt, Karlsruher SC, FC Nurnberg, 1860 Munich, VfB Stuttgart and Hertha Berlin were pulled from the Oberliga Nord, West, Sudwest, Sud and Berlin to feature in the very first Bundesliga season in 1963.

Another change occurred through the German reunification whereby West Germany and East Germany officially came together, affecting the Bundesliga, as they looked to introduce East German sides Dynamo Dresden and FC Hansa Rostock into the top tier of German football alongside other already-included West German teams.
