Bayern Munich won their seventh straight Bundesliga title in 2018-19, and the Bavarian giants are heavy favorites per the Bundesliga betting odds once more. Although they only beat out Borussia Dortmund by two points for the title last season, they were able to overcome a very sluggish start that saw them fall well behind Dortmund by losing just one of their last 22 matches. Following such a hot finish, Bayern are the team to beat, and their 28 Bundesliga titles don’t hurt.

We didn’t see Niko Kovac make many moves this offseason. Bayern Munich only brought in three players, but two of those acquisitions were for major money. The club shelled out over $90 million to sign Lucas Hernandez away from Atletico Madrid and then spent $40 million on Benjamin Pavard. Those center backs are expected to be the lynchpins of a revamped back line for the club.
Robert Lewandowski will be the star up front. He has led the Bundesliga in scoring in four of the last six seasons, and he is one of the deadliest forwards in the world. Lewandowski will be complemented by Renato Sanches and Thomas Muller, and Bayern are hoping for big things from Sanches.
Manuel Neuer is healthy once more and ready to lead from the back. He missed the first part of last season due to injury, and his return helped spark Bayern on their run over the latter two-thirds of the season.
Borussia Dortmund have been the foil for far too long and last season’s failure to win the Bundesliga stung. Dortmund had a golden opportunity, but a 5-0 blowout loss to Bayern Munich in Bavaria in April broke them. They will take some solace in a Super Cup win over their rivals this past weekend, giving Dortmund at least some silverware.
Christian Pulisic departed for Chelsea over the summer and Abdou Diallo made the move to PSG. Dortmund made sure to spend the money from those moves though, attempting to improve a number of areas. The club added Mats Hummels from Bayern Munich and added Nico Schulz from Hoffenheim. Wingers Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt came in from Bundesliga rivals, and Paco Alcacer joined from Barcelona.
The meteoric rise of Red Bull Leipzig through German soccer has rankled the feathers of some traditionalists, but it has been very impressive. This club only started 10 years ago, yet quickly rose from the fifth tier of German soccer to the Bundesliga and have made a name for themselves.
This roster is incredibly young. The average age of everyone on Red Bull Leipzig is under 23 years, and two-thirds of the team are foreign-born to boot. They have added promising young players like Ademola Lookman and Christopher Nkunku to pair with Timo Werner and Yussuf Poulsen, and they will once again play an engaging brand of football.
Bayer Leverkusen edged rival Borussia Monchengladbach for fourth place in the Bundesliga last year after a fantastic final few months. They are looking like a Champions League team once again with players like Julian Baumgartlinger and Lars Bender now being paired with new signings like Kerem Demirbay and Nadiem Amiri.
A slow start to last season nearly ended their Champions League hopes, and that’s something Bayer Leverkusen are looking to avoid this year.
There are a number of contenders outside the top four. Borussia Monchengladbach, VfL Wolfsburg, and Eintracht Frankfurt were all close to Leverkusen last season, and Werder Bremen and 1899 Hoffenheim weren’t far behind. Hoffenheim were very unlucky to finish ninth last year, and they are a team that could make a huge splash with Dietmar Hopp’s deep pockets funding the club.
