The Bundesliga’s second round will draw to a close with the Bavarian derby on Sunday, featuring Bayern Munich and Augsburg. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and Bundesliga live betting in the German top-flight league.
Kane Means Wins for Bayern, Bettors
Bayern Munich will be looking to extend their record streak to 12 consecutive league titles. However, this Bayern side has seen some major upheaval. Thomas Tuchel replaced Julian Nagelsmann toward the end of last season. After replacing a pair of executives, Bayern spent big to revamp the squad. The German giants finally secured the signing of Harry Kane to lead the attack and the additions of Kim Min-jae in defense and Konrad Laimer in midfield strengthened areas of need.
Bayern and Kane put their Supercup loss to RB Leipzig behind them in the 2023-24 Bundesliga campaign’s opening act. The defending champions ran out comfortable 4-0 winners at Werder Bremen, thanks to their new star striker’s first goal and assist since leaving Tottenham and signing with the Bavarian giants. If you’re betting online, you should back Kane to win the Golden Boot this term.
The England striker returned to London for the birth of his fourth child at the start of the week but is expected to lead the line once more at the Allianz Arena. Leroy Sane, who scored a brace last weekend, and Kingsley Coman should continue in the supporting roles, but Jamal Musiala is out with a hamstring injury. Joshua Kimmich is in line for his 350th competitive appearance for Bayern.
Augsburg Already Relegation Candidate
There will likely be a tense relegation battle in the bottom half involving several clubs. Not just newcomers Heidenheim and Darmstadt but also Stuttgart, Bochum and even Augsburg. Last season, they finished just one point above the red zone, and we expect them to struggle again.
They kicked off their domestic campaign with an entertaining 4-4 draw against Gladbach, but they will have a mountain to climb on Sunday against Bayern Munich. We won’t include them in our Bundesliga picks and parlays.
They deserve praise for how they hit back from 2-0 and 3-1 down to lead 4-3, but let’s not forget they played against one of the worst defensive teams, Gladbach. Robert Gumny is banned for the visitors, while all Irvin Cardona, Arne Maier, Reece Oxford, Masaya Okugawa, Renato Veiga, and Raphael Framberger remain in the recovery room.
Bayern Munich’s First Home Game Mojo
Bayern has lost their last two fixtures at the Allianz Arena, both against RB Leipzig, but hasn’t suffered three straight competitive defeats at home since 1977. They also haven’t lost their first Bundesliga home game of a season since 2011.
Augsburg scored a club record 26 away goals in the Bundesliga last season, but is without a win in their last 13 league fixtures on the road, losing 10 in the process. Bayern scored five goals in each of the previous two head-to-heads against Augsburg and has won their last four meeting at home.

Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Betting Lines
Betting Pick: Early Goal Incoming
The Bavarian giants enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -1300 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Bundesliga odds, while the goal line is set at four.
We are counting on Bayern Munich to pull off an easy win here. They are considered heavy favorites and given their excellent performances in the previous match and their world-class squad, we anticipate them to live up to the label and add three more points to their season tally. There is simply no value to be had in backing the hosts, with even the handicap markets offering little in the way of value. We expect the hosts to start strong and score early in the game.
