Twelve teams vie for the title of league champion whilst avoiding the stigma of relegation to the second tier. For licensing reasons, the Austrian Bundesliga is officially known as the tipico Bundesliga. Now that our history lesson is sorted, let’s get to the betting!

What should I know before placing bets on the Austrian Bundesliga?
You should definitely know is the tipico Bundesliga is a fairly small enterprise. With only 12 teams taking part in the league, teams tend to know each other very well. For football fans this is wonderful - grudge matches are often the most exciting spectacles. Regardless which team is favoured on paper, when two teams who know and dislike each other square off, the perceived advantages fly out the window. To be fair, in recent history Red Bull Salzburg have separated themselves from the pack. As a result, they are the object of even more scorn from the other 11 teams in the league. On a more pragmatic level, it’s important to know which team is rounding into championship form and which teams are simply trying to stave off relegation. You’ll need to know which player has a nose for the goal and which goaltender could be mistaken for a brick wall. By regularly consulting with Bettingformat, you’ll be in the loop and poised to make lucrative wagers.

Are there perennial favourites in the Austrian Bundesliga?
In recent years, Red Bull Salzburg have established themselves as kings of the pitch. Whilst that is wonderful for their prestige, the betting odds are correspondingly low. In the interest of profitable sports wagering, we direct your attention to other lively teams in the Austrian Bundesliga. Rapid, Austria, Graz and Linz are all viable candidates to dethrone Salzburg, or at least string together enough victories to make them your betting sweethearts. Interestingly, in our experience we’ve noticed that teams which claw out of the 2nd tier into the tipico Bundesliga often ride that wave of success to a UEFA Cup berth. We theorise this is down to that team firing on all cylinders and the Bundesliga mainstays being largely unfamiliar with the Johnny-come-lately.

Can I place long-term bets on the Austrian Bundesliga?
Long-term bets are exceedingly popular betting options for the tipico Bundesliga. The attraction is obvious – a small bet now can yield huge dividends at the season’s end. Long-term bets are limited only by a bookmaker’s imagination. Beyond the straightforward ultimate winner, you can also place wagers on top goal-scorer, most assists, which team will suffer the indignity of relegation and more than space allows. The earlier you place these bets, the higher your winnings. Don’t get too excited – sometimes a little patience will make your long-term bet more viable.

Are special bets like draw-no-bet, double chance and handicapping available in Austria’s Bundesliga?
Most bookmakers will cheerfully accept wagers on so-called special bets. The three above are fairly common, so let’s look at them in closer detail.
This form of betting is the least well-know of the three in our list. When you play a drawn-no-bet (or ‘draw-money back’ as it is sometimes called), a match draw results in your money being returned. Your team wins, you win. The match ends in a draw, your money is returned. The opposing team wins, you lose. All in all, it’s not a bad hedge.
- Double chance bet:
This is useful bet when you’re not terribly confident about the match outcome. Perhaps the two teams are quite comparable in terms of strength and you’re not quite sure which way to bet. With a double chance bet, you can turn a one-in-three probability into a two-in-three by betting on 1 + X, or X + 2.
This style of betting is great when one team holds a clear advantage over their opponent. You can give the underdog a one or two goal lead which the ‘superior’ team must make up during regular time.
What are some other special bets I can place on the Austrian Bundesliga?
The laundry list of betting markets offered by large betting providers can literally number in the hundreds. You can place bets on everything under the sun, if you so choose. You can wager on the number of red cards, the number of corner kicks within a certain time frame and so on. When the floodgates of live betting open, the selection becomes simply staggering.
