Bundesliga Season Betting Preview
Bayern Munich once again dominated the Bundesliga last season, winning 25 games en route to a record 25th league title. More of the same is expected from Die Roten in the upcoming campaign, with the club perched as strong -1000 favorites to pick up their fourth straight title in Bundesliga futures betting at Bet365.
The Bavarians allowed just 18 total goals over 34 league games last season with four of those coming in a 4-1 loss to VFL Wolfsburg, who eventually finished second on the table, 10 points back of Bayern Munich.
VFL Wolfsburg will also open the 2015-2016 campaign chasing their league rivals on the Bundesliga betting lines at Bet365 with +1600 odds.
Borussia Dortmund endured a tough season in 2014-2015, losing seven of their first 10 matches before rebounding with nine wins in their final 15 contests, but still finished a disappointing seventh on the league table, 33 points back.
But confidence remains high that the Black and Yellows can return to the familiar form that saw them finish no worse than second in the previous four seasons, with solid +2000 odds in Bundesliga futures betting.
Bayer Leverkusen qualified for Champions League action for a third straight year following their fourth-place finish in Bundesliga league action, and join Borussia Mönchengladbach, who finished a strong third last season, at +4000 on the Bundesliga betting odds, while Schalke rounds out the front of the pack at +5000.
TSG Offenheim leads the best of the rest at +25000 at Bet365, followed by six clubs deadlocked at +50000 including VfB Stuttgart, Werder Bremen, Mainz, Eintracht Frankfurt, Hannover 96, and Hamburg.
FC Augsburg tallied a club-best fifth-place finish on the Bundesliga table last season, but is expected to take a step back in their upcoming campaign, reflected by their +75000 odds at Bet365, putting them alongside Cologne.
Hertha Berlin trails at a distant +100000, followed by FC Ingolstadt at +150000, while Darmstadt is pegged as a +500000 longshot.
