Bundesliga Outright Odds for 2023/24
The Bundesliga winner odds refer to betting on the potential tournament winner in the 2023/24 season. For the past 11 years, the title of the strongest team in the championship has been claimed by Bayern Munich, the most decorated team in Germany.
Borussia Dortmund is considered to be the main contender for Bayern Munich, having last won the title in the 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons. In the previous year and the 2018/19 season, Dortmund had the chance to break Bayern's winning streak but stumbled at the end of the championship.
Among the other teams in the past 11 years, RB Leipzig has most frequently made it into the top three, achieving this feat five times. Leipzig secured the second place twice – in the 2016/17 and 2020/21 seasons.

According to the Bundesliga odds for the 2023/24 season, Bayern remains the top favourite. The club had an active offseason and strengthened their squad with players such as Konrad Laimer, Raphaël Guerreiro, Kim Min-jae, and of course, Harry Kane.
However, we shouldn't automatically hand the title to Munich.
Firstly, there have been significant changes in the management of Bayern, and it's unknown how they will affect the club. Secondly, their closest competitors have noticeably refreshed their squads and could surprise everyone.
Among the other Bundesliga favorites, Borussia Dortmund stands out first. After selling one of their leaders, Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid, the club reinvested the funds received into new transfers. As Erling Haaland's departure shows, the FC knows how to replace their key players.
RB Leipzig sent three of their leaders to conquer the Premier League: Nkunku (Chelsea), Szoboszlai (Liverpool), and Gvardiol (Manchester City). However, according to experts, the team managed to find good replacements for each of them. Moreover, the squad has become deeper after the summer and is now ready to compete in both European competitions and in the domestic league.
Union Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen are considered the "dark horses" in the odds to win the Bundesliga. Both teams have strong managers – Urs Fischer and Xabi Alonso respectively. During the offseason, they not only managed to hold on to their leaders but also made some serious signings.
Most Wins in the Bundesliga
The German Bundesliga was established in 1963. Since then, the tournament has taken place 60 times, with Bayern Munich securing the title as the strongest team in Germany 32 times. In the last 11 years, only Munich's Bayern has claimed the championship trophy.
The second place is shared by two Borussia teams – one from Dortmund and the other from Mönchengladbach. Each of these clubs has been crowned champions of the country five times. Dortmund was the last team to hold the title before Bayern's 11-year championship streak. At that time, Jürgen Klopp was still leading them. As for Borussia Mönchengladbach, the last time they won the top football trophy in Germany was in the 1976/1977 season. Here is the list of all Bundesliga winners:
|Team||Number of the Bundesliga title wins|
|1. FC Köln||2|
|1. FC Kaiserslautern||2|
|1. FC Nürnberg||1|
Bundesliga Relegation Odds for 2023/24
The two worst-performing clubs at the end of the season are relegated to the 2. Bundesliga. The team that finishes ranking 16th plays two playoff matches against the third-place team from the lower division. The winner of this playoff has a chance to participate in the Bundesliga in the following season.
In the current season, the lowest Bundesliga odds for relegation belong to two newcomers – Darmstadt 98 and 1. FC Heidenheim. According to bookmakers, there are also serious concerns about the relegation prospects of clubs such as VfL Bochum and FC Augsburg, which didn't perform well in the previous championship. Interestingly, VfB Stuttgart, which played in the playoffs last year, is currently only ranked 10th among the relegation contenders.
|1. FC Heidenheim||1.72|
|1. FC Köln||7.00|
Bundesliga Top Scorer Odds for 2023/24
Betting on the top scorer of the Bundesliga means selecting a player who will score the most goals in the championship this season. Last year, the title of the leading goal scorer was shared by Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig) and Niclas Füllkrug (Werder Bremen). Both players switched clubs this summer: Nkunku now plays in the English Premier League, while Füllkrug remains in Germany but now represents Borussia Dortmund. They both secured victory by scoring just 16 goals, which was the lowest tally in Bundesliga history.
The leading contender for the title of the best goal scorer this season is Harry Kane, who joined Bayern Munich during the offseason. While playing in England, Harry won the "Golden Boot" three times. Last season, Kane found the net 30 times in 38 EPL matches.
In other German teams, there is no standout leader, so the odds for other contenders are approximately equal.
Past Bundesliga Top Goal Scorers
Last season, the title of the Bundesliga's top scorer was shared by two players: Christopher Nkunku and Niclas Füllkrug. In the Bundesliga, this is the 11th occasion when two players simultaneously received this title.
Gerd Müller and Robert Lewandowski are the most effective goal scorers in the history of the top division in Germany. Both of them have won the title of the league's top scorer seven times during their careers. The second place in this list is shared by Ulf Kirsten and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, each with three victories in the race for the top goal scorer of the season. Here is the list of the most recent winners of this title:
About Bundesliga Betting
The Bundesliga is the top division in the football system of Germany. In the UEFA rankings, the German championship holds the third position, trailing only behind England and Spain. Over the past 11 years, Bayern Munich has consistently clinched the league title. Its closest rivals are Borussia Dortmund and Borussia M'gladbach, each with 5 championship trophies.
The 2023/24 Bundesliga season features 18 teams. The season kicked off on August 18, 2023, and will end on May 18, 2024. A total of 34 rounds will be played, with each team facing every other team twice: once at home and once away. In case of a tie in points between two or more teams, the following criteria will be used to determine the higher position:
- Goal difference;
- Total goals scored;
- Head-to-head results;
- Goals scored away in head-to-head matches;
- Goals scored away in all matches;
Germany holds the third spot in the UEFA rankings, and at the end of the season, the top four teams in the tournament will participate in the Champions League. The club finishing fifth will enter the Europa League, while the team ranking sixth will join the Conference League. The two lowest-ranking teams at the end of the season will be relegated to the 2. Bundesliga. The 16th-placed team engages in playoff matches against the third-placed one from the 2. Bundesliga to secure a spot in the Bundesliga for the following year.
At the end of the Bundesliga season, two individual awards are also presented: the “Player of the Season” and “Rookie of the Season”. The winners in these categories are selected via a voting process involving fans, clubs, and experts. In the previous season, Jude Bellingham, who played for Borussia Dortmund (and transferred to Real Madrid this summer), received the Player of the Season award. Karim Adeyemi, another player from Borussia Dortmund, was named the Rookie of the Season.
Bundesliga Markets on UKClubSport
The Bundesliga is one of the top European football leagues, and as a result, top bookmakers offer a wide range of betting options for punters. In addition to staking on match outcomes, you can place wagers on total goals, both teams to score (BTTS), Asian handicaps, match goal scorers, and much more.
One of the main features of Bundesliga betting in recent seasons is the high-scoring nature of the league. In the 2022/23 season, teams scored an average of 3.17 goals per match. Therefore, bets on "total goals over 2.5" look more appealing in the Bundesliga compared to many other leagues. Another notable aspect of the league is the number of red cards. Compared to the top-5 leagues, refereeing in Germany tends to be more lenient towards players. On average, in the 2022/23 season, 1.26 red cards were shown per round. For comparison, in Italy, this indicator reached 1.78, while in Spain, it was as high as 3.65.
Factors to consider when betting on the Bundesliga
Bayern Munich's 11 consecutive championship wins have left their mark, with some experts considering the Bundesliga less competitive. While Bayern is undoubtedly the dominant force in the league, the other teams are closely matched and consistently deliver exciting matches with plenty of goals. For example, in the previous season, as many as 11 clubs averaged more than 1.5 goals per game, including Werder Bremen in 13th place and Union Berlin in fourth place. It's important to note that this season, many favourites like Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig have undergone significant squad changes. At the beginning of the season, they may be more prone to dropping points against weaker teams, as new players may not have fully adjusted to the pace of the Bundesliga and may still be adapting to their new teammates.
