About 2 Bundesliga Betting
This guide will provide you with all the information related to 2 Bundesliga odds, types of bets, and more. Even though the second Bundesliga is not the top league in German football, it is extremely competitive. Possibly even more than the top Bundesliga.
It broke ground in 1974 and now consists of 18 teams. The first and second-ranked teams are promoted to the Bundesliga at the end of the season. The 17th and 18th-ranked teams are relegated to Liga 3. Interestingly enough, the 3rd-ranked team participates in the play-off for promotion to the Bundesliga. The 16th-ranked team is in the play-off for relegation.
Each team plays 34 games per season. In the 2021/22 season, Schalke 04 won the league and thus, earned a promotion to the first league.

Darmstadt has never won the 2 Bundesliga and this is its golden chance. The best ranking that the team ever had was in 2014/15, when it finished second.

FC Heidenheim’s best season was in 2019–2020 when it finished third.
