Win Big With BetBiga On The Bundesliga
The German Bundesliga is one of the most popular leagues in Europe. In fact, it is the third most prominent football league in the world.
The English Premier League and the La Liga do have more following across Sub-Saharan Africa due to television rights and coverage. However, the Bundesliga remains is the best-attended football league in the world (pre COVID).
It provides punters with exciting options for maximizing their stakes.
The league boasts of the current best footballer in the world (Robert Lewandowski) alongside other world-class talents like Joshua Kimmich, Erling-Braut Haaland, Jadon Sancho, and Dayot Upamecano.
German teams are consistently present at the top level of European football.
Most teams in the league favour a very expressive style of attacking football. Similarly, they operate a counter-press and a high-line in defence which clever strikers can take advantage of.
Hence, punters can exploit observed betting patterns to increase their probability of winning.
Only 18 clubs partake in the Bundesliga each season unlike other major leagues like the Premier League that have 20 teams.9 matches are played every gameweek.
Here are five, well-analysed options for the Bundesliga:
#1 Over 2.5 Goals scored
These are very common options for punters who stake in European leagues. However, the German Bundesliga comparatively offers a higher probability of winning.
In the 2018/19 season, 62% of matches in the Bundesliga ended with at least two goals scored. Last season, it increased to 65%.
Top teams like Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are almost guaranteed to average at least 3 goals per match due to the quality of their forward players. Teams at the lower rungs of the table also give priority to the offensive aspect of the game. There are usually spaces to be exploited when clubs meet in the Bundesliga.
The German Bundesliga recorded 3.12 goals per game last season.
#2 First goalscorer
The Bundesliga boasts of some of the most potent strikers in the world. It is particularly safe to back them to score the first goal of the game when their teams play.
This season, Frankfurt’s Andre Silva has scored the first goal in 31% of the Bundesliga games his team has been involved in.
The real catch to this bet option is that punters do not have to wait till the end of the game to win. An early goal scored by the rightly predicted player means the bet is settled.
#3 Both teams to score
Betting on both teams to get on the goals is a safe option. Bundesliga matches have been analysed to be end-to-end. The strategy for many teams is to score more than concede rather than defend the goal scored.
Even the big boys are prone to conceding when they come against teams with quick centre-forwards that can exploit their defensive high line. It is no surprise that Bayern Munich has only kept five clean sheets in 22 games in the league this season.
Defenders are usually allowed the freedom to push forward and be part of the attack in the Bundesliga. This affords teams more spaces to seize when there is a turnover of possession.
58% of the games in the German top-tier league finished with both teams scoring last season.
#4 Asian Handicap
This is a popular bet option amongst punters. However, it is highly rewarding if the games are properly analysed.
Asian Handicaps provide a structure in which teams are handicapped based on their form and the quality of the opponents. Essentially, a stronger team is required to win by more than one goal for a punter to win.
For example, backing Bayern Munich to win with a -2 handicap would mean that they have to defeat the opponent by a margin of more than two goals.
This bet option guarantees more odds than simply betting on just a win.
Teams like RB Leipzig win most of their matches by single-goal margins. Therefore, it is safe to back their opponents with a +1 handicap.
#5 Half-time Bets
Placing a half-time bet involves predicting the outcome of a match, come the half time whistle.
This option is particularly rewarding when placed on teams who have the tendency to drop the intensity of their play in the second half. This is most times due to the energy teams expend in having to win the ball high up the pitch. Many teams fail to keep it up for the duration of the game.
Other times, some teams settle late into the game and pick things up in the second half. Borussia Dortmund is one of those teams. This season, The Black and Yellows have won 63% of their Bundesliga games in the second half. Punters can stake on their opponents to win or draw the first half.
The smaller teams can be backed to get a favourable half-time result when they take on the top teams after playing on the continent. Coaches rotate their squads conspicuously before and after playing matches in the UEFA Champions League or Europa League.
