Bayern Munich stormed to the 2021-22 Bundesliga title with 77 points from 34 matches as Die Roten won their 10th consecutive Bundesliga trophy last term. Now, Julian Nagelsmann is aiming to add to the club's record 32 domestic top flight trophies.
It won't be easy for Bayern to win a 33rd Bundesliga trophy. Borussia Dortmund have spent heavily this offseason to reshape the team. Edin Terzic will take the reins after Marco Rose was dismissed following just one season in charge. Terzic is a Dortmund supporter and coached the side on an interim basis in 2020-21, leading the Black and Yellow to the German Cup. Now, he has the permanent job and will aim to win a first Bundesliga title at Signal Iduna Park in over a decade.
RB Leipzig are coming off of their first DFB Pokal title win. Die Roten Bullen will be hungry for more silverware next term and should start the season well. Could RB Leipzig make a run at the Bundesliga title?
Bayer Leverkusen finished third a season ago. The Company XI are always in the mix for the title from year to year, but always seem to fall away at some point. Gerardo Seoane will hope this year can be different.
Bundesliga Betting Odds
Bayern Munich are the bookies' favourite to lift another Bundesliga title. Die Roten aren't just favourites, they are massive favourites to win the German Bundesliga. Leading sportsbooks don't fancy Borussia Dortmund to win the top flight. Yet, Edin Terzic has a squad that is arguably stronger than the one available to Marco Rose in 2021-22.
Here are the latest Bundesliga odds on the outright winner:
- Bayer Munich 1/5
- Borussia Dortmund 9/1
- RB Leipzig 12/1
- Bayer Leverkusen 28/1
- Eintracht Frankfurt 100/1
- Borussia Monchengladbach 100/1
- Wolfsburg 225/1
- Hoffenheim 250/1
- Freiburg 500/1
- FC Koln 500/1
- Mainz 500/1
- Stuttgart 500/1
- Union Berlin 500/1
- Hertha Berlin 500/1
- Werder Bremen 750/1
- Schalke 750/1
- Augsburg 1000/1
- Bochum 1000/1
Who Are the Favourites to Win Bundesliga?
Bayern and Dortmund are the two leading favourites to win the Bundesliga this season. Die Roten are coming off of their 10th straight league title and are heavy favourites to win an 11th straight league trophy.
Nagelsmann has strengthened the side in the offseason. Bayern added Sadio Mane from Liverpool. The coach previously claimed Robert Lewandowski's movements are too static. It has caused a rift between Nagelsmann and the Polish striker. Lewandowksi wants to leave the club. Even if he goes, Mane's goalscoring ability should be enough to make up for it.
Dortmund sold Erling Haaland to Manchester City. Despite this, the Yellow and Black are in great shape. Five outfield players have been signed including strikers Karim Adeyemi and Sebastien Haller, defender Nico Schlotterbeck, and midfielder Salih Ozcan. Dortmund have lost a few players, but the additions make up for those departures.
RB Leipzig got off to a terribly inconsistent start last season under Jesse Marsch. The coach's style of play did not play to RB Leipzig's strengths. The club sacked Marsch and brought in former Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco. He turned the team's season around and led Die Roten Bullen to the DFB Pokal. Leipzig should be better from the start in 2022-23.
Which Team Won Bundesliga Last Season?
Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga in 2021-22. Die Roten posted 77 points from 34 games. They scored a league high 97 goals while conceding the joint fewest with 37. Meanwhile, Polish striker Robert Lewandowski won the top goalscorer award with 35 goals.
Who Are the Dark Horses?
Borussia Dortmund can be considered a dark horse. Bayern are massive favourites at 1/5 odds. In addition to the odds, Dortmund have a new coach and a squad that has experienced a number of new players.
Outside of last season's top four, Eintracht Frankfurt could be the biggest dark horse. The Eagles won the Europa League for the first time, defeating Rangers on penalties. Oliver Glasner is one of the brightest young coaches in football.
If he has the players to fight for a top place in the Bundesliga, then Eintracht Frankfurt could be around the title picture. The Eagles will play in the Champions League this coming season for the first time, so the tournament could cool any hopes of fight for first place.
Bundesliga Top Goalscorer Odds
The 2021-22 Bundesliga season saw Robert Lewandowski top the goalscoring charts with 35 goals. He will certainly be a favourite to win it once more, if Bayern Munich hang onto him.

Bundesliga Relegation Odds
Two teams were promoted from the Bundesliga 2 at the end of last season. Werder Bremen and Schalke both returned to the top flight. For Schalke, it will feel like a long time away. Meanwhile, Werder Bremen returned more quickly. Both clubs are aiming to avoid the drop back to the second division.
The relegation odds will be posted by major betting sites in the build up to the new campaign. Once they are released, Easyodds will have daily, updated relegation betting odds available. Stay tuned for further information.
Dark Horses for Relegation
Hertha Berlin won the relegation/promotion playoff against Bundesliga 2 team SV Hamburg last season. The Berliners have not been very good for some time despite the money put into the playing squad. The 2022-23 Bundesliga season could see the Old Lady finally go down.
Stuttgart are also a dark horse for relegation. The Swabians needed a last minute goal on the final day to avoid the relegation/promotion playoff. A lack of quality could see Stuttgart go down this time around.
Which Teams Were Relegated Last Season?
Last season, Greuther Fuerth were relegated as they finished 18th. Greuther Fuerth picked up a mere 18 points and conceded 82 goals.
Joining them in the Bundesliga 2 are Arminia Bielefeld. Arminia tallied just five wins last term on the way back to the second division.
Bundesliga Outright Winner Prediction
Bayern Munich are the strongest team in the German Bundesliga and should claim an 11th straight title. Die Roten have got stronger by adding Sadio Mane this offseason. Bayern have also signed midfielder Ryan Gravenbach from Ajax along with former Ajax right back Noussair Mazraoui. The additions will make the team stronger and help Bayern win another league trophy.
