If you miss the Bundesliga, I have very good news. Germany’s top-flight returns this Friday with a bang. Bayern Munich, aka the reigning champions, will play host to Bayer Leverkusen, currently atop the standings. Here are the Bundesliga best bets for this clash of titans. That’s right, bets. This match is too important to focus on just one.
Bayern Munich Good, But Not Enough
On Sept. 2, Bayern Munich was the soccer betting favorite to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach on the road, and they did. However, the reigning champs had to come from behind to win 2-1. Mathys Tel scored the winner in the 87th minute.
Even so, Bayern totally deserves to come in as the favorite at -170. First, they’re averaging three goals per game. Second, Harry Kane and Leroy Sane already are among the league’s top scorers with three goals each. Finally, the team only lost one of their last 20 Bundesliga games at home.
If you want to bet the side, I recommend going for a draw in your soccer picks Sept 15. I expect Bayern to take the reins right from the start, but the visitors will end up winning a point. The best news is that the halftime-fulltime draw prop bet is offering a great price in our sportsbook.
Regarding the regular three-way moneyline, the draw is offering a +390 price. That’s also a great deal.
Bayer Leverkusen Averaging More Goals
Believe it or not, Bayern Munich isn’t the top-scoring team in the Bundesliga. Not even the second. Three games into the season, Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart have scored 11 goals each, two more than the reigning champs.
Most recently, Leverkusen crushed SV Darmstadt 5-1, with Victor Boniface as Player of the Match after scoring a brace. Keep an eye on Boniface. He has scored more goals than Kane and Sane, with four.

Boniface is the main reason to consider a bet on “both teams to score – yes” as one of the best Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen bets Sept 15.
Keep in mind that Leverkusen is +360 to win straight up. You should know that they only lost two of their last 10 Bundesliga games on the road. That’s in case you were looking for an underdog to bet on.
Both Used to Scoring
Leverkusen won 2-1 the last time these two met. That was the eighth time, in their last 10 encounters, that both scored. The two times that one side failed to score, the match was played in Munich.
Regardless of whether both scored or not, the total has gone over 3½ goals in six of their last 10 meetings. That’s just another reason to include the over in your soccer betting picks, especially at -112.
