The top-flight of German football makes a welcome return to our schedule and fans are delighted to have it back. The Bundesliga return signals major European football is back in full force and we are fast approaching what passes as normality for lovers of the beautiful game. In a month’s time we’ll have the Champions League back and summer will change to autumn. Here are our Bayern Munich v Hertha Berlin betting tips
A Closer Look
The Bundesliga campaign kicks off with a Friday night fixture involving Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin that will be shown live on BT Sport from 7.30pm. Armchair fans will be settled into their seat early and we are due our fair share of excitement. Munich have a chance to grab a big win, set down a maker for the year ahead and send out a real message of intent to their rivals which says ‘we’re here to stay’. Will they take command at the earliest opportunity?
The betting certainly seems to think so and major bookmakers are falling over themselves to support the locals. Looking for a financial interest on Bayern Munich? You’ll have to make do with the 1/5 offered by William Hill as there’s not much better around, most firms happy to sit closer to the 1/6 mark. That’s short odds but it’s about fair, judging this one on Munich’s form last term. The draw is best price 6/1 at Bet365 and there’s 14/1 with William Hill if you’re bold enough to take a pop at the visitors upsetting the applecart. A nice price, of course, but it’s not something we would advise getting your money on.
Go with the Specials
Instead, we’re off into the specials and having our stake money down on the handicap market, backing Bayern Munich -2 which comes out at 11/8 with Bet365. A big ask but if Bayern score early we should have no bother getting that home.
