  • Bayern Munich have opened as -300 favorites to win the 2020 German Bundesliga title for the eighth straight season.
  • Dortmund (+650) are their closest contenders followed by RB Leipzig (+1200) and Bayer Leverkusen (+3000).

This past Bundesliga season came down to the final day, but once again it was Bayern Munich claiming a title — their seventh in a row.

Sportsbooks have opened Bayern as the clear -300 favoritesto make it eight straight titles in 2020 with Dortmund (+650) and RB Leipzig (+1200) their closest competitors.

2020 Bundesliga Title Odds

Since winning back-to-back titles in 2010-11 and 2011-12, Dortmund have finished as runners-up on four separate occasions. Wolfsburg (2014-15), RB Leipzig (2016-17) and Schalke (2017-18) also have second-place finishes during Bayern’s seven-year title run.

Last season wasn’t easy for Bayern Munich, especially during a poor stretch of form where they failed to win in four Bundesliga home matches in a row, tied for their longest home winless run in the history of the league (April-September 1966 and September-October 1994).

But despite the early troubles, Bayern managed to storm past Dortmund in the title race, including a 5-0 drubbing in April, which really sent a message.

Bayern Munich are in strong position to win another title as they’ve already transitioned from older players like Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben to young studs such as Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman. Making a run at Leroy Sane of Manchester City is also a top priority for the summer and they have the resources to make a big splash.

Dortmund have already settled some transfer business by selling American star Christian Pulisic to Chelsea and acquiring wingers Julian Brandt (from Bayern Leverkusen) and Thorgan Hazard (from Monchengladbach).

They could be better and even deeper than last season which makes their +650 odds very intriguing, but they’re already a trendy pick by the public.
