Bundesliga betting tips – latest predictions

Our free Germany Bundesliga predictions are updated for every round of games. Take a look at the latest predictions from our Football Whispers tipsters.

Prediction 1: Monchengladbach vs Leverkusen: Leverkusen to win @ 13/20 (1.65)

We start our Bundesliga predictions with the reigning Champions’ curtain raiser, which sees them travel to Monchengladbach. Our bet is that Leverkusen win. Leverkusen went unbeaten in the league last year and have, as it stands, kept their squad and coaching staff together for the new campaign. With Monchengladbach having struggled to keep their heads above water last season, surviving by only a solitary point, it would be some turn up if they were to take points of Leverkusen in game week one. Leverkusen have won seven of the last nine head to head meetings losing none in that period as well.

Prediction 2: RB Leipzig vs Bochum: Benjamin Sesko to score anytime @ Odds TBC

We now turn our attention to Leipzig vs Bochum and were backing Benjamin Sesko to score anytime in this match. The Slovenian forward impressed with his performances at Euro 2024 albeit without scoring. Despite that his most notable moment at the tournament was probably his late one on one miss against Portugal as his nation were eventually eliminated on penalties 10 minutes later. That moment is playing a key part of our bet here; we are backing the player’s psychological strength to shine through. The fact he scored 18 goals last season whilst Bochum had the second worst defensive record in the league as well helps with our thinking too, obviously.

Prediction 3: Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich: Over 3.5 goals @ 11/10 (2.10)

We end our Bundesliga bets with a total goals wager and we are betting on Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg to serve up over 3.5 goals. Bayern Munich averaged 4.1 goals per game last season, which was the highest game average in the league. As for Wolfsburg, they were notably lower scoring at 2.9 goals per game across last season but four of their last six home games at the back end of last season did break the 3.5 goal mark. Two of the last three head to head games have gone over 3.5 goals too.

Bundesliga 2023-24 Season Recap

When Bayern Munich signed Harry Kane last summer it was supposed to be the signing that put them well and truly back with the best in the Champions League. The Bundesliga title was meant to be a given. It was not. Bayern produced a pretty horrific season by their own lofty standards. Sure, they're put up a fight in Europe but, domestically, they crashed out of the Pokal to lower league opposition and finished third in the Bundesliga; they'd not finished lower than second since 2010/11.

This season, Stuttgart, who haven't attracted nearly as many plaudits as they deserve, came second whilst Leverkusen were the story of the season. Xabi Alonso's men lost only one game in all competitions – notably the Europa League final – as they recorded a league and cup double. With a 17 point lead over Stuttgart – and 18 over Bayern – it's fair to say the Bavarians have work to do to overhaul that gap next year.

It's not all been bad for Kane though. On an individual level he has torn Germany up netting a total of 36 goals, which puts him eight ahead of Stuttgart's Serhou Guirassy and 12 in front of Leipzig's Lois Openda where the golden boot is concerned.

With respect of the relegation battle, Darmstadt and Koln ended in the two automatic relegation spots with the former somewhat cut adrift amassing only 17 points. Bochum meanwhile found themselves third from bottom but they rather sensationally overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit in the playoffs to ensure Dusseldorf won't be a Bundesliga side in 2024/25.

Bundesliga outright predictions

Who will win the Bundesliga title?

Where the Bundesliga title is concerned it's hard to look beyond one of Leverkusen or Bayern Munich. Bayern surely won't be as bad as they were in 2023/24, which means they have to be considered a big threat at the summit once again. Leverkusen meanwhile have already made their best signing of the summer with Xabi Alonso committing his future to the club for at least another season. Alonso's loyalty is likely to see the star players of Leverkusen's unbeaten side hang around too and therefore they'll be hard to knock off their perch.

Stuttgart, Dortmund and Leipzig, to name a few, might be annoyed not to be included in our thoughts. In reality though, it would take a monumental effort for any of those to overhaul the aforementioned duo given what they're likely to take into next season.

  • Bayern Munich 1/2 (1.50)
  • Bayer Leverkusen 5/2 (3.50)
  • Borussia Dortmund 10/1 (11.00)

Bundesliga Top Scorer Odds

The Golden Boot market is a pretty easy one to predict right now; you can't bet against Harry Kane. If Kane is fit, he'll score a hatful of goals in a Bayern side that will be playing front footed, chance creating football. Should Kane have a spell of not scoring though then Serhou Guirassy, Victor Boniface, Benjamin Sesko and Lois Openda may well all fancy their chances too.

Who faces relegation from Bundesliga?

It feel brutal to look at the relegation picture so early but there are a few standouts who should feat the drop. Bochum needed a playoff to survive this season and, as such, it would be bold to suggest they will be safe from trouble next season. Holstein Kiel and Holstein Kiel and St Pauli meanwhile earned promotion from Bundesliga 2 and will likely have ambitions of purely trying to stay up. The latter of the promoted duo in particular have to be favourites for the drop given they've also lost their manager, Fabian Hürzeler, to Brighton this summer. It means new gaffer Alexander Blessin has a big job ahead of him.
