The 2019-20 Bundesliga season starts this Friday. Defending champs Bayern Munich host Hertha at 2:30pm ET on FS2, fuboTV and Hulu in the US. As expected, 2019-20 Bundesliga title odds heavily favor Bayern to win what would be their 8th straight domestic trophy this season.
Can anyone realistically challenge Bayern Munich this season? Oddsmakers don’t seem to think so. We do.
2019-20 Bundesliga Odds
Similar to the 2019-20 Premier League title odds, oddsmakers view this as a two-team race. In the EPL, it’s all about Liverpool and Manchester City. In the Bundesliga, it’s Bayern and Borussia Dortmund.
Yes, BVB lost Christian Pulisic this summer to Chelsea. However, BVB arguably had a better overall summer than Bayern. BVB have a certain prototype of player–one that excels at distribution on the attack.
They’ve brought Mats Hummels back and acquired Thorgan Hazard, Julian Brandt, Nico Schulz, and made Paco Alcaser (and his 18 goals from last season) permanent. Most importantly, they retained superstar Jadon Sancho for one more season.
BVB only fell 2 points shy of capturing the Bundesliga last season. This squad is deeper. Their +400 is currently more appealing than Liverpool’s +275 in the EPL. Expect a thrilling, down-to-the-wire title race.
