Since Borussia Dortmund won back-to-back German Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, it has been one-way traffic when it has come to this competition. Bayern Munich landed the crown in 2013 and they have had a stranglehold ever since, with the Bavarian side having landed their thirtieth top-flight title last term.

That was achieved under the departing Hansi Flick who now takes charge of the German national team, with Julian Nagelsmann having been recruited from RB Leipzig after the young coach had previously been manager of Hoffenheim and it’s probable that Bayern will continue to steamroller the opposition and potentially get even better.

The bookies are certainly taking no chances with their quotes about Bayern winning the 2021-22 title, with seven points landed from the first three matches of the campaign and the team have averaged three goals per match already, with that man Robert Lewandowski running in the goals for fun.

The Polish front man has five goals on the board and that included yet another hat-trick against Hertha Berlin, with Niklas Sule having risen to the fore in central defence and there is plenty to like about this team who are also among the favourites to win this season’s Champions League.

If we are looking for viable alternatives, then Borussia Dortmund might be the team to end the dominance of Bayern Munich, especially as the well-supported club managed to retain the services of Erling Haaland. The Norwegian is one reason why this team are going to win lots of games this season and they have looked bright in the opening encounters.

Marco Rose’s side claimed a typically exciting 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in their opening clash of the campaign and they were also able to overcome Hoffenheim 3-2 in front of a bouncing Westfalenstadion, although an away defeat to Freiburg has also happened and there are clearly defensive concerns regarding the team.

RB Leipzig are now managed by former Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch and it will be interesting to see how he adjusts to a higher standard of football after proving successful in Austria. Early signs indicate that the team might struggle following the departure of Nagelsmann and they were unable to score or get anything from games away to Mainz and Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg finished fourth in the German Bundesliga table and could be best of the rest this season, with Mark van Bommel looking to continue propelling the greens up the table and the Dutchman deserves enormous credit for his work at the Volkswagen Arena. He’s been particularly dedicated to ensuring the team are hard to score against and the team have enjoyed a bright start to the campaign.

Bayern Munich have won the Bundesliga for the past two seasons and will look to make it three – and 25 in total – this season. Can anyone stop them? We provide the latest live betting odds comparison as well as make our Bundesliga predictions and give our betting tips for the campaign ahead.

The defending champions are priced at betting odds of just 1/6 to win yet another Bundesliga title and it would take a brave man to oppose them in the outright winner market. Having said that, at such short odds, in many ways it would take an even braver man to back them.

They have strengthened their weakest area with the addition of Robert Lewandowski, simultaneously weakening their main rivals, Borussia Dortmund, in the process. Dortmund are second favourites in the outright winner betting at odds of 13/2 but in truth we fail to see how they can get the better of Bayern.

Pep Guardiola’s men won the Bundesliga title in record time last term and given the Catalan coach has had longer to get his ideas across and many of his squad will be buoyed by Germany’s World Cup win, we think they could be even more dominant this term.

As such, our main betting tip is simple and, even at odds of just 1/6 it has to be Bayern.
