Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich set to clash in title indicator

Thomas Delaney Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Betting Odds Preview Bundesliga Germany soccer

We may only be in November, but the derby between German giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich on Saturday evening could well go a long way to deciding where the league title will end up come the conclusion of the season. Bayern Munich has won the domestic crown for the last six seasons, but it is Borussia Dortmund that is in the better form ahead of this huge game.

  • Borussia Dortmund is the only unbeaten side remaining in the Bundesliga.
  • Bayern Munich is unbeaten in its last three league outings.
  • Bayern Munich has won 13 of the last 26 meetings between these two teams.

Dortmund out to prove a point

Borussia Dortmund may well have made a hugely impressive start to its domestic campaign, but this will without doubt be the biggest test of all. Under coach Lucien Favre, the Dortmund side has looked like championship material and currently sits top of the pile, unbeaten after 10 games, four points clear of second place and scoring at a hugely impressive rate of three goals per game.

Bayern, by its own insanely high standards, has been poor in the league to date. The defending champions sit third in the table, having already lost twice and conceding at a rate of over a goal a game. Given the power Borussia boasts in the final third, Niko Kovac and his Bayern side could well be in for a torrid time come Saturday night.

Yet despite their stuttering form, it is champions Bayern Munich who come into this derby as the favorites to secure backing rights. You can back the visitors to take all three points at +110 while Borussia, despite home advantage and its unbeaten start to the season, is out at +210 to do the same. A draw would appear to be the least likely outcome of all and is priced accordingly at +275.

Dortmund could edge close encounter

On paper there is no uncertainty that Bayern Munich has the technically stronger squad. Yet within the noisy confines of Borussia’s Westfalenstadion home and with the home side riding high on its excellent domestic form, we like the look of a slight upset here.

It is of course not easy to try to predict the exact scoreline of any football match, much less one between two teams as closely matched as these, but a 2-1 win for Borussia is priced competitively at +1000. That in turn would allow you to back OVER 2.5 goals in the game, priced at -137, and both teams to score, which comes in even shorter at -188.

Therefore, it is worth considering combo betting as a method of boosting any earnings from the match. The method allows you to back multiple outcomes at higher odds.

For example, a Borussia Dortmund win coupled with both teams to score is at the much higher price of +400, while a home win and OVER 2.5 goals in the game comes in at +333. Two or three goals in the game is at +110, while OVER three goals sees the price rise slightly to +150.

Could we see a fast start?

With the stakes raised in this game, both sides will be looking to take the initiative from the very first whistle. With that in mind, we could well see an early goal with both teams playing on the front foot.

You can back OVER 0.5 goals in the first 10 minutes at a price of +300, with Bayern at +700 to be ahead within that time frame. Borussia is only slightly higher (+800) to take the lead within those opening exchanges.

In terms of goal scorers, Borussia will surely be looking to Spanish striker Paco Alcácer to fire them to victory. The international forward is at +175 to score at any time during the game, while you can back him at +650 to net either the first or last goal of the game.

Veteran Bayern forward Robert Lewandowski is at the shortest odds of any player, priced at just -163 to score at any time and at +260 to open the scoring.

It is Borussia who we are backing to enjoy the last laugh, however.
