Guide for betting on the German Bundesliga
Below we are listing the best sportsbooks on where to bet on Bundesliga as well as further detailed information about the most common betting types and odds.
There is a wide variety of bets that can be placed on the German Bundesliga and its games. These can be made on the players, clubs, and games and fo course also online live betting. For example you can bet on which teams will be relegated, which team will win the league, and where a specific team will finish in the table. When it comes to individual matches, you can wager on the winner, loser, a draw, the final score, the half-time score, the total number of goals, and the margin of victory, etc. You can also bet on individual players, such as who will receive a red or yellow card and who will score a goal, who will score the first goal, and who will take a penalty, etc.
One of the most popular bets in the German Bundesliga is wagering on a team to keep a clean sheet (shutout). This means the team won’t let in a goal during the game. For example, if Bayern Munich is playing against Hamburg the odds on Bayern keeping a clean sheet may be set at 11/5 and the odds of Hamburg keeping a clean sheet could also possibly be the same at 11/5. This means if you bet on either team to shut the other one out you’d win a total of $11 for every $5 bet.
Handicap betting is also pretty popular when it comes to German Bundesliga betting. For instance, if Bayern Munich is listed at +2 goals against Hamburg, who’s listed at -2 goals; it means that Hamburg has to win the game by three goals or more for the bet to pay off. Therefore a bet on Bayern will win as long as they don’t lose by more than two goals. If the favourite team wins by two goals or the underdog loses by two goals then the bet would be refunded.

You’d win $9 for every $1 bet on Hamburg, and $2 for every $5 bet on the draw.
