1. How The Bundesliga Works

The best teams in German football have been battling it out to be crowned the country’s champions by finishing the season at the top of the Bundesliga league table for over half a century.

Bundesliga Champions

There are 18 clubs that contest the Bundesliga, with each playing 34 matches across the course of the Bundesliga season, 17 at home and 17 away. There are no playoffs to decide prizes at the top of the Bundesliga table. Teams are simply awarded three points for a win and one for a draw. Whoever wins the most points ends the season as champions.

In cases where teams have the same points the Bundesliga uses to following criteria to separate them (in order):

  1. goal difference
  2. goals scored
  3. head-to-head points
  4. head-to-head goal difference
  5. head-to-head away goals scored
  6. away goals scored.

If the teams still cannot be separated there is a playoff.

Bundesliga European Qualification

It’s not just top spot that teams in the upper echelons of the Bundesliga standings are concerned with. Due to Germany’s strong UEFA coefficient ranking, the top four Bundesliga sides are automatically entered into the group stages of the Champions League.

The teams which finish fifth and sixth are given a guaranteed spot in the Europa League.

These positions can change come the end of the seasons as the winners of the German Cup are awarded a Europa League place. 

Bundesliga Relegation

18 teams contest the Bundesliga and while each club would love to be crowned the champions, they don’t all share the same lofty ambitions as Bayern Munich. There can only be one winner but up to three teams can be relegated from German football’s top tier and into the Bundesliga 2. For some teams, simply surviving in the Bundesliga is an achievement in itself.

The teams in the bottom two positions of the table after playing 34 games are automatically relegated. The team who finishes third from bottom (in 16th place) have to face a playoff against the side who finish third in the Bundesliga 2. These playoffs are two-legged affairs with each team playing one game at home and one away. The winning side on aggregate are given a spot in the top flight for the following season. It’s worth noting that Bundesliga teams don’t always have the best of these playoffs as the lower ranked side can often make the most of their stronger form going into the crucial matches.

Bundesliga Winter Break

Like many national leagues in continental Europe, the Bundesliga has a winter break. Aside from that break, Bundesliga fixtures generally take place on Saturdays and Sundays but have been known to take place on every day of the week.

2. History Of The Bundesliga

Football has a long and rich history in Germany but it was not until the 1950s that calls for a national league really took off. At that time there were teams in both East and West Germany but the professionalism of rival European leagues made it difficult for German teams to hold onto their best players. While there was a great desire to create a national league, the political situation in Germany made it difficult for the national administration, the Deutscher Fußball Bund (DFB).

The catalyst for the formation of a central league in West Germany came when the national team (known as Die Mannschaft) were knocked out of the 1962 World Cup by Yugoslavia. The creation of a national professional league was seen as the best way of ensuring that there would not be a repeat of such an embarrassing result.

Bayern Munich Dominance

In Bundesliga history winners have come from all over the country but the league’s most successful team, Bayern Munich, did not even compete in the league’s first two seasons. The 1968-69 season was a big one in Bundesliga history, as champions Bayern Munich firmly announced themselves with the first of their titles. Bayern have gone through multiple periods of dominance in Germany football and hold a number of records.

3. Bundesliga Odds Explained

The Bundesliga is one of the most popular football leagues in the world. With world class players and teams, it guarantees entertainment week-in-week-out. 

Bundesliga Match Markets

There are tens of football bet types available for each Bundesliga match. The most popular of these markets include:

  • Match Result 1X2: Selecting the result (Home win, Draw, Away win) at the end of 90 minutes plus added time.
  • Asian Handicap: Selecting the winner with each competing team carrying a goals handicap.
  • Goal Total Over/Under: Selecting either over or under a specified number of goals.

For a comprehensive list and detailed descriptions of football bet types, please read our How To Bet On Football – Football Bets Explained guide.

Bundesliga Winner Odds

Let’s begin by looking at Bundesliga winner odds. As with all league outright markets, betting on the Bundesliga winner is placing a bet on who you think will be top of the Bundesliga table come the end of the season.

Below we can see an example of Bundesliga winner odds, with odds listed by Coral.

Bundesliga Winner ‘Without Bayern’ Odds

Given the strength of Bayern Munich’s squad and the hold that they have over the Bundesliga title, many bookmakers offer a ‘Winner Without Bayern’ market. In this market, you are betting on which club will finish hightest on the Bundesliga table with Bayern eliminated from consideration.

Below we can see an example of Winner Without Bayern odds, with odds listed by Paddy Power.

Bundesliga winner without Bayern Odds

Note: Odds displayed are not current

Given Bayern’s dominance and expected strangle hold on the Bundesliga title, you are effectively betting on the team you think is going to finish second. 

There are a number of teams who are aiming to close the gap on the division’s top two teams and this could be a very competitive market which is worth careful consideration for your Bundesliga betting predictions.

Bundesliga Top 4 Odds

There are a range of additional positional finish markets available to you at the top end of the Bundesliga. Of these, the Bundesliga top 4 finish market is one of the most popular options. Most bookies won’t even offer you a price on Bayern to finish in the top 4, as their chances of finishing among this group are so strong. But you can utilise this market if you’ve got a sneaking feeling about a team who have strengthened their squad well over the summer.

Bundesliga top 4 oddsNote: Odds displayed are not current

Positional betting does not end with the Bundesliga top 4 market. You can also bet on the following:

  • Top 3 Finish
  • Top 6 Finish
  • Top 10 Finish
  • Bottom 2 Finish
  • To Finish Bottom

Note that the greater the number of options there are in these market, the more teams you won’t get prices on. But if you know your German football you can find value odds on outside shots who are not well fancied but have the potential to force their way into European contention. These markets can also be a hive of value if teams have a poor start to the season but finish strongly.

Bundesliga Relegation Odds

At the other end of the table, many punters get involved with the Bundesliga relegation odds. As always, the teams who have just won promotion are among the favourites to be relegated straight back to Bundesliga 2.

Below are an example of Bundesliga relegation odds, with odds listed at Winner Sport.

Bundesliga relegation odds

Note: Odds displayed are not current

It is worth bearing in mind that the Bundesliga is a very competitive league and we’ve often seen teams with lofty ambitions finding themselves sucked into a relegation battle. Given this lack of predictability, there is value to be found if you’ve picked a midtable side that you believe are going to struggle to meet expectations and long grind of the Bundesliga season.

Bundesliga Top Goalscorer Odds

Bundesliga outright odds do not only concern the 18 teams in the competition. You can bet on the performances of individual players. The most popular player betting option is of course the Bundesliga top goalscorer market.

You will find a huge selection of Bundesliga top scorer odds with bookmakers far and wide offering this market. 

When you’re planning who to bet on to be the Bundesliga top scorer, there is more to consider than simply how good a goalscorer an individual player is. You should also take into account how well the player’s team are expected to go (better teams will create more chances for their strikers), the team’s playing style and tactical approach (do they look to dominate teams like Bayern or are they more focused on defence?) and lastly, the competition for places in the starting eleven (could the player be dropped to the bench after a couple of games without a goal?)

Please note that these stats should be used as preliminary analysis only and as a guide for league by league tendencies.

5.1 What Is Home Field Advantage Worth In The Bundesliga?

Let’s begin by considering the question of home field advantage in the Bundesliga. Over the last five football seasons, the Bundesliga has performed pretty much to the ten league average in terms of home team winning percentages.

League results 2017/18 to 2021/22

League Matches Home Win Draw Away Win
Premier League 1900 43.8% 22.8% 33.4%

La Liga 1900 44.4% 27.4% 28.2%
Total 12015 43.8% 24.7% 31.5%

Home Bundesliga clubs have performed fractionally above the five year league average with a winning percentage of 43.9% as opposed 43.8% across the seven leagues. We can see that home advantage in the Bundesliga diminished through covid impacted league play, with the win percentage of home teams at 40.2% in 2019/20 in comparison to 46.7% in 2021/22.

Bundesliga results 2017/18 to 2021/22

2021-2022 306 46.7% 23.9% 29.4%
Total 1530 43.9% 24.7% 31.4%

In terms of competition points earned, home Bundesliga clusb won on average 1.564 points per home match, compared the seven league average of 1.561, while away Bundesliga clubs earned 1.189 points per match compared to the 1.192 seven league average.

But what was home field advantage worth in the Bundesliga in terms of a goal advantage? The table below shows the average goals scored across the last five season for both home and away clubs.

League average goals for and against 2017/18 to 2021/22

League Matches Ave. GF Ave GA Ave GD

As we can see, home field advantage in the Bundesliga has been above the seven league average, with home clubs enjoying a +0.33 goal advantage at home compared to the +0.29 seven league average. This figure amounts to a +0.66 goal swing between an average Bundesliga club playing at home as opposed to that same club playing at an away venue.

The table below shows the average differential between a Bundesliga club’s home goal difference and their away goal difference in matches played in the German top flight over the last five seasons.

6. Betting On The Bundesliga Online

There are thousands of betting opportunities presented by the Bundesliga. Therefore, it is important to consider a few things before choosing which bookmakers you want to use for you Bundesliga betting.

The first thing to consider is the offering that the bookies have for the Bundesliga. Every bookmaker offers odds on the Bundesliga but not all of them have the same depth of market coverage. That is applicable to both outright markets and individual matches. When it comes to outright markets, it is always worth betting with bookies who give you control. Whether that’s being able to cash out of your positions during the season or getting selections added to specific markets, the more control you have over your Bundesliga betting the better.

It is often worth spreading your betting between multiple bookies. This offers you insurance in case technical issues bring a site down during busy times and also it gives you choice so that you can bet on selections that offer the most value.

If you are looking to open up a new account or two, make sure that you have a look through the various new customer offers available to you. These can provide you with a risk free way to get an understanding of the offering of different bookies and often give your betting balance a healthy boost early on.

So to revise, when it comes to selecting a bookmaker for the Bundesliga there are a number things to consider, the most important to consider are:

  • The bookmaker’s reputation and media profile.
  • The diversity of Bundesliga betting markets available.
