Bundesliga winner odds: Bayern the team to beat once more
Bundesliga winner odds and preview
Bayern Munich get the defence of their title under way at Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday August 13 and are unsurprisingly 1/6 in the Bundesliga winner odds for a 10th successive championship.
There will be a new man at the helm this season with former RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann replacing Hansi Flick, who has taken over the Germany national team from the outgoing Joachim Low.
Bayern finished 13 points clear of Leipzig last season so let’s look at the Bundesliga winner odds for the champions and their rivals ahead of the new season.

Nagelsmann wasted little time in bringing 22-year-old French defender Dayot Upamecano to Bayern from his former club Leipzig, although the main talking point is whether Robert Lewandowski will join Real Madrid in the summer.
The Poland striker broke Gerd Muller’s record by scoring 41 goals in the Bundesliga last season but his future remains up in the air and his absence would be a massive blow.
Borussia Dortmund finished a point behind Leipzig in third place but are 7/1 second favourites in the Bundesliga winner odds to land the title for the first time in 10 years – but they will have to do so without Manchester United-bound Jadon Sancho.

Dortmund also have a new man in charge following the appointment of Marco Rose from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Rose worked with Erling Haaland while head coach at RB Salzburg and it will be hoped his influence will convince the Norway striker to stay at the club.
RB Leipzig, 12/1 in the Bundesliga winner odds, have named former assistant coach Jesse Marsch as the man to replace Nagelsmann.

Leipzig have boosted their strike-force with the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt forward Andre Silva, who scored 28 goals in 32 appearances last season and his goals could play a key part in securing Champions League football once again.
Leverkusen have never won the Bundesliga but were runners-up five times between 1997-2011 and have finished in the top six in the last four seasons, so they have established themselves as a serious force in German football.
Gerardo Seoane will start his job as head coach without Bender twins Lars and Sven, who both retired at the end of the season, so significant additions to the squad will be needed if Leverkusen are to make a top-four challenge. They are 66/1 in the Bundesliga winner odds.
Like the other major teams in the Bundesliga, Gladbach also have a new man in charge with Adi Hutter leaving Eintracht Frankfurt to replace Rose, who took over at Dortmund.
Hutter has been given the task of bringing European football back to Gladbach after they reached the last 16 of the Champions League last season having finished fourth in the previous campaign.
New recruits will be needed to realise that dream and with no transfer dealings on the horizon a tough season could be in prospect as their odds of 80/1 suggest.
