Final Rush in the Bundesliga Title Fight: The Thrill of 2022/23
The German Bundesliga had consolidated in the past few years as a league of secondary outright markets. Everyone expected FC Bayern to be the big favourites. Every single year.
It’s true that the last time any other club lifted the Bundesliga silverware was back in the distant Klopp days when he was in charge of Borussia Dortmund. But with just 4 rounds missing, Borussia Dortmund is just one point below FC Bayern in the table.
We had a very exciting season so far with unlikely protagonists such as Union Berlin. The side from Berlin may have failed to remain a contender for the title until the end of the season, but they remain very much alive in the fight for a Champions League Group stage spot, which is a great accomplishment considering the recent history of Union.
There’ll be no direct match between the title contenders, which means this sequence of parallel battles will require a keen live score so German fans and fans of the Bundesliga can keep informed while their team plays and the opponents face their own challenges in other games.
Bundesliga Outright Betting Odds: Situation as of May 2nd
The odds for yet another title of FC Bayern are on average between 1.28 and 1.33 depending on the bookie you check. On the other hand, the odds for a title of Borussia Dortmund are of 3.3 on average, although you can find it from 3.0 to 3.5 depending on the house.
There is just one point separating these clubs, but history is a strong factor here. FC Bayern has dominated the German scenario in the last decade, and a club challenging the reigning champions always has more tension to fight off. What happened in England is a good example of that: Manchester City managed to become leaders again by crushing Arsenal, a team that had an excellent start in the EPL.
Big odds usually hide more value. Perhaps a good strategy here for gamblers could be placing a small bet on BvB, and in case they become leaders, hedge it by buying FC Bayern’s odds at a more interesting price. In this case, you can bet on a potential temporary failure of the German Kings, without exactly having to wait for a true title of BvB, which can be harder to happen. We’ll publish here a guide about hedge sports betting soon.
Summary: 2022/23 Season of the Bundesliga
We had a surprising season in Germany so far. RB Leipzig is consolidating as a top table club, and Union Berlin was the big surprise of the year, enjoying some weeks of 1st position in the table. While the capital side failed to remain a title contender, Europe may see them in the most prestigious club-level football stage of the world in the upcoming season.
We also have quite some exciting markets available in the outright betting markets for the German Bundesliga.
