Bundesliga Title Race All But Over

There are still a few more months of Bundesliga play, but the race may be over with Bayern Munich with a 13-point lead over second place Bayer Leverkusen. Don’t look for any teams to gain ground on them, as their next two matches are facing clubs in or near the relegation zone.

You can tell that odds makers think Bayern Munich has the league title in the bag, as in Bundesliga betting odds they are at -35000 to win the league.

Bayer Leverkusen is in second place in the league, but they have, pretty much, blown their shot to catch Bayern with two losses in their last three matches. They are still in good shape for a top four finish, but have a tough upcoming match facing fifth place side Borussia Monchengladbach. In terms of Germany soccer odds Bet365 has them as slight road underdogs at +163 with Borussia Monchengladbach at +160 and a draw line at +230.

Bayer Leverkusen has a tough February, as all of their matches are facing teams currently in the top six in the league table.

Third place side Borussia Dortmund has been struggling with only two wins in their last seven matches. They are big betting favorites in their next match posted at -275 with Werder at +650 as the home squad and a draw line of +400.

Schalke has been a team on the move in the last few weeks with only one loss in their last nine matches. They sit in fourth place in the league table and will be tested this month with home matches facing Hertha Berlin and Mainz and a road match with Bayer Leverkusen.

There are still several teams that have a legitimate shot to finish in the top four in the league table. Five clubs are currently within striking distance of Schalke in Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg, Mainz, Hertha Berlin, and Augsburg.

Wolfsburg is a squad that was moving up in the standings, but has lost two straight. They have a tough February ahead with all three matches facing teams in the top eight in the league.

Freiburg, Hamburger SV, and Braunschweig are the clubs that are currently in the relegation zone.
