Bundesliga 2021/22 Matchweek 1 betting picks & top odds

Bundesliga betting tips

Bayern Munich will begin its quest for a 10th straight Bundesliga title this Friday when they face Borussia Monchengladbach in the opening match of the 2021/22 season. We’ve got a pick for you in that game as well as two others in this weekend’s soccer betting tips for Matchweek 1 of the Bundesliga.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich is going off as a -179 favorite in Friday’s matchup coming off of a 24-6-4 campaign in 2020-21. One of Bayern’s four outright losses in league play last season came at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach, and it’s difficult to just write it off as a fluke; few teams have had as much success as Monchengladbach has against the defending champions in recent years with a 4-0-4 record in the last eight league matches between these two clubs.

M’gladbach is 5-1-4 in its last 10 games against Bayern, including a 2-0 win in a friendly last month and a 0-0 draw in the 2019 Telekom Cup. Of course, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bundesliga’s best team come out of the gate with a big win, but considering they are on the road with a new manager facing a club that always plays them tough, a draw (+325) or loss (+385) wouldn’t be surprising either. Covering both outcomes for -120 on the half-goal spread feels like a good play in this spot.

VfB Stuttgart vs Greuther Furth

VfB Stuttgart had a strong season in its return to Bundesliga in 2020-21, finishing in the top half of the table with a 12-9-13 campaign. With the experience and confidence gained from last year, all signs point to another solid season for Stuttgart in 2021-22.

Greuther Furth had finished in ninth place or worse in 2. Bundesliga for six straight seasons before last year’s shock second-place finish. The club’s 18-10-6 season was enough to earn promotion for just the second time in Gruether Furth’s history. Expect this to be a long season for the young club; there may be some highlights in matches against lower-level squads, but playing on the road against a quality Stuttgart side in its first Bundesliga match since 2013 has loss written all over it.

Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Two of last season’s top-five finishers clash in what should be one of the most exciting games of the weekend. Despite the fact that Borussia Dortmund finished second in Bundesliga in scoring with 75 goals and Eintracht Frankfurt finished third in scoring with 69, the two games between these two clubs were surprisingly low-scoring with Frankfurt winning 2-1 on the road and playing a 1-1 draw at home.

Look for fireworks to return in this Matchday 1 showdown. Before last season, these two clubs had combined to score at least four goals in five of their previous six meetings. Both squads will be looking to make an early statement and should find their way to at least four goals.

Over 3.5 goals
