If two teams have the same amount of points the goal ratio is taking into account for the ranking. The first ranked team is crowned champion, while the last two teams, namely ranks 17 and 18 need to go down to the second German Bundesliga. Rank 16 is a so-called relegation spot. Whoever is ranked 16th after 34 rounds needs to play two games against the third ranked team form the 2nd Bundesliga. If they keep the upper hand after these two games, they remain in the first league. If not they also need to go down to the 2nd Bundesliga and the former second league team gets promoted to the 1. Bundesliga. The best known teams fighting for the title are FC Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig. They not only fight for the title though, but also for international competition like UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europe League.

How strong is the German Bundesliga compared to other top leagues?

The German Bundesliga is one of the best four leagues in Europe, if not the world. Germany is currently ranked second behind Spain in the UEFA 5-year ranking, which means that in this league football is played on the highest level. Rising above all since many, many years is FC Bayern Munich. A tip on a home win for Bayern is almost a sure bet. In the last couple of years Borussia Dortmund turned out to be the number two in Germany. The team in black and yellow has been a regular in international competition for a while now and they are no underdogs there either. If they participate in the Champions League they almost always make it past the group phase. Worth mentioning is also Schalke 04, who are kind of a lucky bag each year. They always start the season with great ambitions, but they can hardly justify them and they keep fighting for international competition spots every year. They haven't been able to attack first place in the last couple of years. Additionally Bayer Leverkusen is one of the league's top teams every year. But they disappointed their fans last year, when they were fighting relegation in 2016/2017 until shortly before the end of the season. A new challenger for Bayern Munich could be RB Leipzig in the future. The vice-champion of 2016/2017 surprised the league in its first season with a fresh offensive style of play. With strong financial help of Dietrich Mateschitz Leipzig might be able to become the number one chaser of FC Bayern together with Borussia Dortmund.

Is it recommended to bet on a total winner in the 1. German Bundesliga?

The clear top club of the last years is FC Bayern Munich. It will also be hard in the future to face up to the serial champion from Munich, since Bayern has the league's biggest budget, the best team and the biggest roster of all football clubs in Germany. Therefore the odds for betting on Munich becoming champion are pretty low. This bet only pays off if you put a lot of money on it, in order to gain some memorable profit. The last champion not called FC Bayern Munich was Borussia Dortmund. If you trust Dortmund to pull off a surprise and win the title, you get rewarded with high odds by the bookies. Munich is the favorite again of course, but why shouldn't there be a surprise? The next club being able to make a run for the title could be RB Leipzig. The team already became vice champion in their first year in the league. Maybe they have even more in store. If you believe that they can win the title, you should put your money on them being the total winner, because the odds for that are very high. For all other clubs the odds are even higher of course. But the champion being called something other than Bayern, Dortmund or Leipzig are extremely slim. If you are sure, that this year's champion will be a surprise, you should place your bet at the beginning of the season, because the odds for this bet are highest at this point.

Are handicap bets recommended in the 1. German Bundesliga?

If the FC Bayern Munich hosts an opponent that doesn't have anything to do with the top of the rankings, the odds for a home win are pretty low. There are two possibilities of raising the odds for a bet on a Bayern home win though. First there is the possibility of raining the stakes. If FC Bayern has odds of 1,20 in a home game, you can earn a profit of € 20, if you put in € 100. If you want to keep your stakes low and still make some profit, you have the possibility of placing a handicap bet. At a handicap bet the underdog gets a fictional lead most of the time. It is expected that the favorite is able to equalize that and turn the game around in their favor. You can raise the odds with such a handicap bet on tips on the favorite. Since FC Bayern Munich scored 2,6 goals on average per game in 2016/2017 and in turn only received 0,6 goals per game, a handicap bet is recommended. But we are not only recommending handicap bets on  games of the serial champion. These bets are also a good tip for home games of BVB Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig. Of course you can also use this tip for other games, if you are sure.

Is a tip on a single game of the 1. German Bundesliga recommended?

The odds on games of the German Bundesliga are generally very good. If the duel Schalke against Stuttgart is being played for example, then the odds for all three possible outcomes will be more than 2,00. So you can earn some decent profits with a little bit higher stakes. If you are sure, that the visiting team will win the duel, then you should place that bet, since the odds for an away win for a middle ranked team can be 3,00 or more. At stakes of € 50, you would be able to cash out € 150 in such a case. The odds for games of middle ranked teams are generally pretty high, which is why a single tip can be recommended in the German Bundesliga.

What else can you bet on in the 1. German Bundesliga?

If you take a look at the statistic of a certain match up and you realize that the results are the same numerous times, then you should place a bet on the exact result. The odds are always high on a result bet and therefore the chances for profit are also good. Another possibility is the halftime/end result bet. For favorite games it can be recommended to bet that the favorite will lead at halftime and then also win the second half. If Dortmund plays at home against Freiburg for example, once can bet that Dortmund will lead by one or more goals at halftime and that they won't lose that lead in the second half either. A similar bet would be that a tam wins both halves. This means: Schalke plays at home against Wolfsburg and you bet, that Schalke will lead at halftime. The second half then starts with a fictional 0:0 and Schalke is able to lead again in the second half and keep that lead until the end. Another tip that can be played is the so-called over.  If you believe that there will be scored more than 2,5 goals in a game you place an over bet. An over tip is always recommended when Bayern plays against Dortmund for example. If there is an over bet, there also needs to be an under bet of course. If two teams, that generally don't score many goals,  play against each other, you can place an under bet and for example bet on it that no more than 2,5 goals will be scored in that particular game.

Which bets can be places at derbies of the 1. German Bundesliga?

There are many explosive duels in Germany's highest league. Some of the most explosive ones are the derbies of course. Every region will claim that their derby is the most exciting one. One of the mist prestigious ones is the "Revierderby" however. This is the duel of Schalke 04 and BVB Borussia Dortmund. In the last couple of years Dortmund turned out to be the favorite in this duel, since they finish in front of Schalke 04 in the rankings on a regular basis. The derbies are never a clear thing though and fans of Schalke 04 can't only celebrate a victory, if their team wins, but also a good betting profit, since the odds are usually pretty high. Another real classic is the duel between 1. FC Cologne and Borussia Monchengladbach. There is no real favorite in this duel, therefore the odds are also high. Betting fans can expect odds of 2,00 for a home win and the odds for a draw or win for the visiting team are even higher of course. The last derby that we want to mention is the Northern Derby. Like the name suggests both clubs are situated in the high north of the country. The two teams facing each other in this derby are the Hamburger SV and Werder Bremen. Both teams have been part of the relegation fight in the last couple of years, especially Hamburg though. The league's dinosaur had to play the relegation games twice in the last couple of years. Bremen was a little bit stronger again last season and they didn't have to shiver for remaining in the league. There is still no real favorite in the direct duel. The bookies from all over the world will also see it like this, so this duel is still a top match and the odds re always a little bit higher in games like these.

What can be said in summary about betting in the 1. German Bundesliga?

Like every year the favorite is FC Bayern. There are still a lot of possibilities to let off steam on the betting market in the German league, since all bookies have a broad betting selection for the German Bundesliga. There are high odds for top matches like Bayern versus Dortmund or derbies in particular.
