Bundesliga Match Predictions Today
Freiburg vs RB Leipzig
Freiburg are the only unbeaten Bundesliga team. Leipzig are resurgent after two emphatic wins before the break. It’s a tantalising football betting clash as a result.
Leipzig did the double in this matchup last term, but prior to that, Freiburg had a three-match winning streak in this fixture.
This is a well-matched duel on paper, with both teams ranking in the top six in expected goal difference per 90.
Both defences have been fortunate so far, though, so we like over 2.5 here.
Union Berlin vs Wolfsburg
Starting the season in contrasting fashions, Wolfsburg and Union Berlin have begun to meet in the middle. Wolfsburg have just one point from the last nine available, while the club from the capital won their last two in the Bundesliga.
The sports betting markets find it hard to split these two teams for their Saturday clash.
Just like their results, their expected numbers are relatively similar, and while Union Berlin haven’t beaten Wolfsburg, they have held them to two draws in their last two meetings at Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
This could really go either way, but we like Wolfsburg to bounce back. They’re a solid bet to win either half.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich
The top two teams in Germany matchup on Sunday in the biggest Bundesliga betting fixture of the weekend.
Only goal difference splits Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich at the top of the league after Bayern’s 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt before the international break.
Home advantage seems like it should be a big factor in a top of the table matchup. Unfortunately for Leverkusen, history suggests otherwise. They have lost their last three matches against Bayern at the BayArena, conceding 10 goals in the process.
Over 3.5 is always a good bet in this fixture – it’s hit in five of the last six encounters in Leverkusen.
Bundesliga 2021/22 Predictions
It would be foolish to look past BAYERN MUNICH in the Bundesliga title race this season. Despite a change in management, Bayern are the dominant force in German football and another Bundesliga success looks likely.
In fact, you'd go as far as to state that anything other than a Bayern title triumph would go down as the shock of the campaign. While the likes of RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg are decent outfits, the Bavarians are a class above.
Bundesliga Top Scorer Prediction
Again, the Bundesliga top scorer award is almost ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI's to lose. The Poland international has been the main man in Germany's top flight for the best part of a decade now and he heads into 2021/22 off the back of an outstanding season.
While Erling Haaland could potentially rival the Bayern star for the German Golden Boot accolade, Lewandowski is widely regarded as the top striker in world football and plenty of punters will be lining up Bundesliga betting predictions on him.
Bundesliga Predictions Today
The 59th edition of the Bundesliga promises to be as captivating as ever and kicks off on August 13th, running right through to mid-May 2022.
Bayern Munich start as strong football betting favourites and how can they not when they last finished outside of the top two all the way back in 2007.
In Robert Lewandowski, the Bavarian giants possess a striker who breaks goal-scoring records for fun and last season, he became the first player to score 40+ goals in the German top-flight since Gerd Muller in 1972.
At the back, a defence that played a big part in Bayern losing just four games in 2020/21 has been further strengthened by the arrival of Dayot Upamecano from their closest rivals RB Leipzig but of most interest is the change in the technical area, with Julian Nagelsmann also making the switch from last term’s runners-up.
Might the highly-rated young coach need time to implement his ideas at the Allianz Arena? Given Bayern’s formidable squad that may represent the best hope for the chasing pack.
Yet still, the nine-time consecutive champions face more robust competition this time out than last.
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to improve on last season’s problematic campaign that needed a late run of victories to secure third.
New coach Marco Rose inherits an immensely talented group and he will surely demand the attacking, dynamic football he is known for. Key to this aim will be retaining the services of Erling Haaland, the only forward who can come close to matching Lewandowski.
Leipzig meanwhile aspire to finally dethrone Bayern and already incoming coach Jesse Marsch has made some intriguing signings.
If the over-riding narrative of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season is that the league’s three leading clubs all have new men at the helm the league also has an unfamiliar look elsewhere.
Greuther Furth and Vfl Bochum are promoted, the latter as champions, and they replace Bundesliga stalwarts Schalke and Werder Bremen who together have been fixtures of the top-flight since 1990. It will be strange without them.
All told, 18 teams compete across 34 rounds of fixtures with a normal winter break planned after a one-off shortened hiatus last year due to Covid.
It will be fun, fiercely cutthroat and hopefully unpredictable too, and along every step of the journey stay with 888sport for the best weekly betting updates and advice from our German football experts.

Bundesliga Outright Predictions
When trying to nail down an outright winner for the forthcoming season it is difficult to look past the mighty Bayern, especially as they have strengthened over the summer at the expense of their direct rivals.
The luring of Nagelsmann to Bavaria is a significant coup and should the much-vaunted coach quickly settle on a preferred starting eleven and formation we can expect a smooth transition from Hansi Flick’s brief but very successful period in charge.
This is likely as Nagelsmann is not known for his heavy rotation or any change for the mere sake of it.
A swift readjustment is important because first up is an away trip to Monchengladbach, who have realistic ambitions to replicate their fourth-place finish two years ago and then in early September they travel to Leipzig who are intent on depriving Die Roten of a tenth straight title.
Dortmund will also feature prominently at or near the top while Bayer Leverkusen are dark horses to secure Champions League qualification.
Top Bundesliga Betting Teams
Few leagues have historically been so dominated by a single entity as the Bundesliga.
In just shy of 60 years of existence in its current format the German top division has been claimed 30 times by Bayern and what is striking is that the monopoly is only escalating.
Prior to an astonishing nine-year winning streak they are looking to build on this term, Bayern managed to string together three consecutive titles across three different eras (the 1970s, 80s, and turn of this century).
Yet each time the Bavarians were reined in by rivals such as Hamburger SV, Kaiserslautern, and Dortmund. Can any side reach the consistently towering levels needed to topple them again? That remains to be seen.
