Which wagering options does Bettingformat recommend for Bundesliga games?

There are many different betting opportunities available for the Bundesliga. Our experts here at Bettingformat will certainly give advice on the victory bet, so 1, X, or 2. If we see too high a risk, or too-low payouts for good bets, we will also suggest special bets such as 1/X or 2/X Double Chance or the Draw-No-Bet. Our analysts also drill down into the statistics to suggest profitable betting opportunities like Over / Under goals (2.5, 3.5 etc.). Another way to spice up the fun is to stake each half as a game in and of itself. You will find these options nicely summarized in our compact analysis and our Betting School. Alongside our analysis, our odds comparison feature will always show you the best betting lines on offer from up to 75 bookies.

Who are the favorites in the Bundesliga?

Munich. Those guys are good and they win a lot. Thankfully for fans of the Bundesliga, other teams are motivated to win the league championship. Hope finds a home in Hoffenheim, Dortmund is up for the challenge and Leipzig isn’t just playing soccer for the healthful benefits of running around for 90 minutes. One of the more interesting aspects of the Bundesliga is the parity among many of the middle-ranked teams. Many evenly matched teams scratch and claw to avoid relegation to the second-tier, while fairly comparable teams work hard to make their way back into the 1. Bundesliga. One thing you can bet on is Munich consistently performing well.

How does the German Bundesliga operate?

Every year the top 18 squads of that year’s Bundesliga compete to be called Bundesliga League Champion. As we mentioned in the opening, Bayern has taken a large portion of the titles. The year’s champion is determined by each team playing the other 17 teams in the Bundesliga two times, once in their home stadium and once in at the away team’s arena. Thirty-four hard-fought games later, a champion emerges from the group. In the event of ties, the goal difference acts as the tie-breaker. The two teams finishing in positions 17 and 18 face the financial hardship of relegation to the 2nd Bundesliga. Conversely, the top two finishers from the 2. Bundesliga enjoy the benefits of moving up into the top-league. The team finishing in 16th place also risks relegation, but they have the chance to redeem themselves by beating the third-place finisher from the 2. Bundesliga. The winner of that matchup goes to or remains in the 1. Bundesliga. The German Bundesliga is one of the three strongest club forces on the planet. As a result of the sustained excellence of the Bundesliga, the top four finishers are through to the group stage of the Champions League. Teams finishing fifth, sixth and in some cases seventh, are eligible to play in the Europa League.

What about long-term bets?

Almost all bookies will offer you the chance to wager on a league champion. As long as that team is still in contention, you can lay your money down. You can also place long-term wagers on the top goal-scorer, which teams will be relegated and so forth. Here’s a little betting hint to consider: Bayern is year in and year out the odds-on favorite to win in the league championship. Because of their domination, the early price-to-payout ratios are quite low. We suggest you hold off your season-bets on Munich until the first couple of games have finished. It could happen that they start the season slowly for any number of reasons. If that happens, the odds will become more agreeable on this fairly safe bet.

Can I place exotic bets on Bundesliga games?

Very much so, yes. We’ve seen up to 500 individual betting lines on some Bundesliga games. With that much action available, we’ll limit our discussion to some of the usual bets. If you keep having déjà vu over and over again, then we strongly recommend the exact result bet. The price-to-payout ratio on this type of bet can be very attractive. We also enjoy the halftime / final position bet. In this type of bet, you treat each half as a separate entity and wager on who will win each ‘game.’ The German Bundesliga is a score-happy league, so when playing the Over / Under betting line, we tend to suggest the Over bet. You can read more about these bets and many others besides at our Betting School.


When it comes to placing wagers on the German Bundesliga, the only limitation is your imagination. With such a dizzying array of options, our results predictions alongside our odds comparison feature can help you secure the smart bet for the best price going.
