In sports, a powerhouse is determined by the ability to bounce back after a painful defeat. That’s what Bayern Munich did after losing 3-0 in the German Super Cup against RB Leipzig. That’s why the Reds are heavily favored in the soccer odds to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach on the road.
Borussia Monchengladbach Tough to Beat at Home
Borussia Monchengladbach scored four goals in the season opener against Augsburg. However, they failed to fulfill their role as betting online favorites since the match finished 4-4. In fact, they almost lost, but Tomas Cvancara saved the day by scoring from the penalty spot in the 97th minute.
Most recently, the Black and Whites played host to Bayer Leverkusen and lost 3-0. I predicted Leverkusen’s victory, but I thought the Black and Whites were going to score. They disappointed me big time after finishing with only two shots on goal.
They can still be considered a tempting soccer betting underdog, especially at +600. That gives you the chance of winning $600 per every $100 wagered. Plus, they’ll be playing at home, where they only lost two of their last nine Bundesliga matches.
Individually, Tomas Cvancara is the main reason for you to consider including the home side in your soccer picks. He scored a brace in the season opener. Plus, he’s only 23 and wants to play for a powerhouse. He’ll try to draw their attention all season long.
Kane Paying Dividends for Bayern Munich
Last season, Serge Gnabry finished as Bayern Munich’s top scorer with 14 goals. Not bad for a winger. However, the Bundesliga reigning champs wanted a proper center-striker. Luckily for them, one of the best in the business was available.
Harry Kane contributed one goal in the season opener against Wolfsburg. The Reds ended up winning 4-0 after taking 10 shots on goal. Wolfsburg only took one. In other words, Bayern’s victory was never in jeopardy.
A week ago, Kane led Bayern to a 3-1 victory against Augsburg by scoring a brace. The Englishman already is among the league’s top scorers. Only Jonas Wind from Wolfsburg and Kevin Behrens from Union Berlin have scored more with four. Even so, Kane remains the bundesliga betting favorite to win the Golden Boot at -275.
To sum up, Bayern Munich is offering a -315 price to win straight up. Considering they only lost one of their last five Bundesliga games on the road, and that we’re talking about the favorites to win the title at -600, that’s not a bad deal.
Tough Opponent for Bayern Munich
Yes, Bayern Munich deserves to be favorites, but the Reds have failed to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach in each of their last four meetings. Last season, the Black and Whites won 3-2 at Borussia Park while the match in Munich finished 1-1.
The good news is, that regardless of the result, both scored in eight of their last 10 encounters. The total is set at four goals with the over offering a -115 price in the sportsbook. I know, that’s high, but the under is offering a -112 price.

Monchengladbach vs Bayern Odds
Monchengladbach vs Bayern Best Bets
Besides only losing one of its last five games on the road, Bayern Munich scored in all five matches and finished with a clean sheet twice. In fact, they scored at least two goals in each of the last three. Borussia Monchengladbach won the last battle, but Bayern didn’t have Kane. With the English striker leading the attacking unit, they shouldn’t have too much trouble winning by two goals.
