Where can I win money in this game?
Bayern stormed their way to another league crown last season and remain the team to beat across the country. For the sixth season in a row, the Munich outfit won the title by a margin of over 10 points, and put simply there does not look to be a team that can match them, on paper at least, over the course of an entire campaign.
It is therefore perhaps unsurprising that Bayern come into this clash as the clear favourites to lift the first silverware of the new season. You can back the league champions to win the tie inside 90 minutes at a price of just 1.36, while Eintracht find themselves all the way out at 7.50, according to Oddsshark.
However, in a one-off game, it has been proven that Bayern can be beaten, and more specifically by the very side they will face this Sunday. This past May, in the German Cup final, Eintracht got the better of their more illustrious opponents to record a hugely impressive 3-1 victory.
To give you an idea of just how unlikely that outcome was, the same score line in this game is priced at a huge 51.00. That means an initial bet of just US$5would lead to a US$255 pay out, and the idea of Eintracht netting three times against a Bayern outfit who conceded less than a goal a game in the Bundesliga last term would appear fanciful at best.
Bayern’s dominance over the rest of Germany has been almost complete over the last half a decade or so and their technical strength is far superior to that of Eintracht’s. A 3-1 win for Bayern is priced at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment.
Despite that German cup win at the end of last season, Frankfurt did not exactly end the league campaign on a high. Eintracht lost four of their last five games, including 4-1 losses to Bayer Leverkusen, and Bayern Munich, as well as a 3-0 reverse against Hertha Berlin.
Despite finishing a respectable eighth last season, Eintracht conceded close to 1.5 goals per game in the league last season and given Bayern’s impressive firepower we could well see goals in this game as well. Over 2.5 goals in the ,atch is priced at just 1.53, while you could potentially more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals at 2.40.
Bayern, meanwhile, won their last three encounters on the road at the end of the previous campaign and may just pick up where they left off in May. They scored in each of their last 10 games and in each of their last 15 away matches – seeing Bayern score in this season opener would look to be as good as certain.
Therefore, try and be a little more specific in your bets. The more accurate you are, the higher the potential pay outs, and with Bayern as such clear favourites there is room to elaborate a little.
For example, you could potentially triple your money by backing Bayern to win in a match with over 3.5 goals at a price of 3.00, while Bayern to win and under 3.5 goals still gives you the chance to more than double your money at a price of 2.30.
Do you think there will be more goals in the first half or the second half? If you think Bayern will come racing out of the blocks then back more goals in the opening period at 3.00, while the price drops to 1.95 for more goals after the break – meanwhile, you could quadruple your money if you think an even amount will be scored in each half at a price of 4.00.
Odds (after 90 minutes): Eintracht Frankfurt (7.50), Bayern Munich (1.36), draw (4.75)
