Bayern Munich are the Bundesliga Outright Winner favourites and with good reason. The Munich side have won the last four Bundesliga titles and will be looking to make it five in a row under new manager Carlo Ancelloti. Can they do it? Or will Borussia Dortmund pick up another title of their own? Maybe Bayer Leverkusen's front line will cause the rest of the league problems?

Bayern Munich Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 1.15 at bwin
Germany's most succesful club Bayern Munich head into the 2016/2017 season looking for their fith title in a row, and their ninth since 2002. Pep Guardiola has left for Manchester City so Carlo Ancelloti has taken over the reigns at the Allianz Arena and will be hoping to continue Bayern's excellent record. They've strengthened their squad with the signings of defender Mats Hummels and Portuguese wonderkind Renato Sanches and it's tough to rule out Bayern making it five Bundesliga crowns on the trot. They won it convincingly last season, finishing ten points clear of nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund, and the bookies have them as clear favourites to repeat the feat. Can anyone come close to Die FCB?
Borussia Dortmund Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 10 at William Hill
If anyone can stop Bayern then Borussia Dortmund are surely the ones to do it. Since winning the league on consecutive occasions in the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons they've finished second in three of the last four campaigns. Yet again they've lost some star players, this time around Mats Hummels has joined rivals Bayern and midfielders Ilkay Gundogan and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have left for the English Premier League, joining Manchester City and Manchester United respectively. However, Marco Reus has been given the captaincy, suggesting the in-demand midfielder will stay at Westfalenstadion, and the rumours are that Mario Gotze will re-sign for BVB and Andre Schurrle is a possibility to join him. With the change of manager at Bayern maybe this is the year Dortmund will topple their title rivals, either way they're certainly worth considering for an each-way Outright winner bet.
B. Leverkusen Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 41 at William Hill
Leverkusen have never won the Bundesliga title, but have finished as runners up on five occasions, all five times coming in the last 20 years. They finished third last time out behind Bayern and Dortmund, but it's difficult to see them doing any better next season with the best odds of 41.0 reflecting that. Kevin Volland has joined from Hoffenheim and will add attacking prowess alongside the likes of fellow winger Karim Bellarabi and striker Javier Hernandez. Impressive forward line, but it's tough to imagine Roger Schmidt and his men doing any better than another third place.
Wolfsburg Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 71 at 10Bet
The 2015/2016 season was a disappointing one for Wolfsburg. Having finished second in the Bundesliga table the season before, and having a first DFB-Pokal cup win to their name, hopes were high that Die Wolfe's success could continue. However they could only muster a relatively poor 45 points last time out having lost Kevin De Bruyne and Ivan Perisic at the start of their campaign. There's talk that this could be another season of selling, with Julian Draxler the next player to be linked with a move away from the Volkswagen Arena, and a title challenge looks well beyond Wolfsburg's capabilities.
Schalke 04 Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 81 at bet365
Schalke have been a regular in the Bundesliga top six, finishing in the higher echelons of the division in six of the last seven seasons. They've won the league on seven occasions and finished runners up nine times making them one of Germany's most successful clubs, although their last title came back in 1958. It's probable that starlet Leroy Sane will be leaving the club, a huge blow to any title challenge, but they have strengthened their forward line with the signing of Breel Embolo. It's going to be incredibly difficult for FC Schalke to perform to the levels required to pick up another Bundesliga crown, with the odds of 81.0 signalling that too. Another top 6 finish is probably the most Schalke and new manager Markus Weinzierl can hope for.
B. Monchengladbach Odds to win Bundesliga 2016/2017 : 176 at 10Bet
Like Schalke, Monchengladbach have established themselves as a steady Bundesliga side, finishing in at least eighth place in each of the last four seasons. They've lost Granit Xhaka to Arsenal but have strengthened their midfield with the signing of Christophe Kramer. It's a huge task for Gladbach to have any say in the title race with another top six finish surely their priority. Odds of 111.0 reflect that, they may be worth considering for a Top Four Finish bet but the title is well out of reach.
The Bundesliga was founded in 1963 as Germany’s top football division and has remained as such ever since, making it one of the longest lasting league structures in the modern European football landscape. Although brighter lights may flicker in parts of England and Spain, the German Bundesliga is the second best league in the world according to UEFA’s current coefficients and is broadcast across the world as a division full of talent and fantastic football teams.
An impressive amount of teams across Germany have competed in the top division over the course of it’s 52 years - 53 clubs to be exact - and has the highest average attendance in all of football. A total of 12 clubs have won the famous salad bowl although Bayern Munich with 24 titles far outweighing any of their domestic competitors, however the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg are always looking to add to their modest totals.
It has the highest average attendance figures of any football league in the world. In fact, the only sports competition in the world with a higher average is American Football (NFL) - proving that the popular Bundesliga is definitely getting something right.

LAST 10 Bundesliga WINNERS
Here is the Bundesliga table for the 2015/16 season with an added-on form guide for each side.
The German top division follows your standard ruling of three points for a win, one point for a draw and zero points for a defeat however its league format differs slightly from what we’re used to seeing in England and across parts of Europe. From the 2008-09 season onwards the DFB (German FA) reinstalled the former promotion and relegation system which involved the bottom two finished in the top division earning automatic relegation to the 2.Bundesliga, to be replaced by the top two sides in the second division that season.
The third-from-bottom team in the Bundesliga is entered in to a play-off match with the third-placed side from the Bundesliga 2, with the winner of the two-legged affair either keeping or earning their top-flight status for the following season. This system, which was previously in place from 1981 to 1991, replaced a different setup which had all of the bottom three Bundesliga sides relegated automatically and replaced by the top three sides from the Bundesliga 2.
Due to the healthy state of the league’s European coefficients the top four at the end of every season earn the right to fight it out against the best in the Champions League, with the fifth and sixth place spots reserved for the Europa League. The DFB Pokal Cup, Germany’s FA Cup - also hands out a Europa League place to the winners, yet if that side are already in a European spot then the seventh placed Bundesliga team picks up the qualification spot.
Like most European leagues the Bundesliga also follows a winter break system, which allows for a six-weak hiatus in the middle of he season from mid-December until the end of January.
