The Bundesliga is one the most exciting leagues in European football, and the Bundesliga betting markets offer bettors plenty of chances to reap big rewards.
Ladbrokes’ Bundesliga odds present Bayern Munich as the second favourites at 15/8, and the Champions League runners-up have a squad bursting with star quality.
Dutch World Cup finalists Mark Van Bommel and Arjen Robben are major influences in midfield, while the Golden Shoe winner in South Africa, Thomas Muller, will be a threat to their Bundesliga rivals.
However, they have not made the greatest start to the campaign and will have to find ways to gain results in the coming weeks without the contributions of both Robben and Franck Ribery, who are both injured.
They are 12 points adrift of Borussia Dortmund, who have won nine of their opening 11 games and show no signs of letting up.
They are four points clear at the top and 11/10 to take the title in the Bundesliga betting odds market.
Mainz won eight of their first nine league fixtures to be the surprise pace setters, but have showed signs of cracking with two recent defeats.
This has resulted in them drifting to 10/1 to win the Bundesliga.
Many of the other pre-season favourites seem to have already blown their chances.
Schalke have fallen to 66/1 to win the Bundesliga after losing their opening four games, while Steve McLaren’s Wolfsburg are 25/1 as they also made a bad start.
Werder Bremen, who won the title in 2004, are 50/1 as they currently sit in mid-table, while Stuttgart, though recovering from a terrible start, are still made 80/1 to be crowned Bundesliga champions.
Bayer Leverkusen are one of the bigger names to have made a respectable start and are 6/1 to win the title, with Hamburg another priced at 10/1.
Hannover are another of the smaller clubs to have started well, but are not expected to challenge come the end of the season according to their current odds of 250/1.
If you’re looking for goals galore and title-chasing excitement with your football betting, Ladbrokes will be your first port of call to bet on German football.
