Who are favourites to win the Bundesliga?
In what will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Bayern Munich are heavy odds-on favourites to win the Bundesliga for the 11th consecutive season and continue their dominance in Germany’s top division.
The most successful side in German history, finished eight points clear of second place Borussia Dortmund last term and will be hoping for the same again in 2022/23.
Despite starting the season with a disappointing draw away at Gladbach, Julian Nagelsmann’s side went on to win 17 of their next 20 matches and sit comfortably on top of the table once more.
Their points total of 77 however, was their lowest since the 2011/12 when they finished second and opposition sides will be hoping that they can close the gap once more next term.

Which teams are expected to put up a fight?
Borussia Dortmund are the closest team to Bayern Munich and have finished as runners-up to their Klassiker rivals in three of the last four seasons.
Having looked close to Bayern just before the winter break in 2021/22, Dortmund lost Der Klassiker in slightly controversial fashion and a nine-point gap was opened that they couldn’t recover from. It will be interesting to see how BVB cope with the loss of the prolific Erling Haaland.
RB Leipzig have finished in the top four in each of the last four seasons and will be hoping they can push Bayern all the way this season, especially if they can keep hold of Christoper Nkunku, who was directly involved in 33 goals in 34 league games in 2021/22.
Bookmakers’ dark horses for the Bundesliga title
Bayer Leverkusen finished the 2021/22 season incredibly strongly, winning six of their last eight games, including each of their last four to secure their best Bundesliga finish since 2015/16.
Patrick Schick scored 24 goals in 27 games, Moussa Diaby finished in double figures for both goals and assists and teenager Florian Wirtz was in fine form before his unfortunate injury so Leverkusen are in good stead for next year.
The likes of Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt and Gladbach are also in contention, but it would an incredible for season for them to realistically compete for the title.

Bundesliga outright odds: Other markets
You can bet on many more outright markets than just the Bundesliga winner. As well as backing a team to lift the trophy, many bookmakers offer markets such as To Finish in the Top Four , the “Without Bayern Munich” market and even more player specific markets such as Top Scorer.
The teams being backed to “win” Without Bayern Munich are obviously those pushing them closest in overall title odds, but the To Finish Top Four is certainly interesting.
Bundesliga relegation odds
At the other end of the table, sides will be doing all they can to stay in the Bundesliga and avoid the bottom three.
The bottom two sides are automatically relegated to Bundesliga 2, while the 17th place side face a play-off game to keep their place in the division.
In 2021/22, Hertha Berling remained in the division after a 2-1 play-off win over Hamburg, while newcomers Schalke and Werder Bremen will hope that their returns to Germany’s top division lasts more than just one season.
