Betting on the Bundesliga

The Bundesliga is the leading German football league and it is generally considered to be the third most important league in Europe. It consists of by 18 teams and it maintains a promotion and relegation system with Second Bundesliga. The league trophy is the DFL-Supercup and all teams compete for the DFB-Pokal.

For many years the most successful team has been FC Bayern Munich, though other prominent champion teams have included Hamburger SV, VfB Stuttgart, Mönchengladbach, Borussia, Borussia Dortmund, and Werder Bremen. The current champions are FC Bayern Munich, though the champions in the previous two seasons were Borussia Dortmund.

Betting on the Bundesliga is very much like betting on the Premier League. The 2013/2014 season got underway early in August, though already it seems that as far as betting odds are concerned to winners are already decided. For instance you would do well to find odds better than 2/5 on Bayern Munich winning the league or 15/4 on Borussia Dortmund. All of the other teams have significantly longer odds, for instance the third favourite is Bayer Leverkusen at 28/1 and the fourth is Schalke at 29/1. Although it is possible that a team other than the top two will win, frankly it is a bit of a casino bet if you are brave enough to do so.
