After the regular season and the break, Austrian top teams are taking part in the play-off now. This weekend they will be playing in the 26th round out of 32, with Red Bull Salzburg leading the table. In our Austrian Bundesliga betting tips we show you all the favorites and the biggest games you can bet on.
12 teams are competing in the top tier Austrian football league, now divided into two groups. The first six teams are playing in the Championship round, while the last six in the Relegation round. This season is not without contradiction as leader LASK Linz were deducted 12 points due to violation of pandemic restrictions. So now defending champion Red Bull Salzburg are leading the league, 7 points ahead of Wolfsberg and Rapid Wien. LASK are only in fourth place now, a point behind the podium.
Austrian Bundesliga betting tips favor Red Bull’s win on derby
This Sunday the two mentioned teams, Red Bull and LASK will meet in Salzburg. Online sportsbooks in Austria are predicting the home team’s win with the odds of 1.65 at the Bet365 sportsbook. Surely Salzburg are in great form after the restart. They won confidently against Rapid Wien and knocked out Hartberg with a 6-0 victory. But they will have a more difficult job against LASK who must be still in an angry mood after their punishment. Their team is not playing too well though, and only got one point from the last two rounds. But to have any chance of retaking the leading, they need to try to defeat Salzburg. Their odds to do so are only 5.00 at the Bet365 Sportsbook.
Current 2nd place team, Wolfsberg will visit the home of Rapid Vienna which seems to be another exciting game. Rapid are the most successful Austrian team, winning 32 titles so far. They only finished 7th last season, but their performance this season is much stronger. They are in 3rd place with the same points as Wolfsberg. With a win over their rival they could make a step towards finishing ahead of them. It would also mean qualifying for the Champions League qualifying round. The Austrian Bundesliga betting tips offer the odds of 2.15 at the Bet365 Sportsbook for their victory. While the guest’s win has the odds of 3.10.
Games in the relegation round
In the last six teams the fight will continue to avoid relegation. At the moment WSG Tirol are in last place, but only a single point behind the two teams ahead of them. They will go to the home of one of these teams, Admira Wacker Modling and try to surprise them. Online gambling sites in Austria are expecting a very tight game, with similar odds for all results.
11th-placed St Polten will visit the group leader, SCR Altach with a small chance to get any point from there. Mattersburg will host another big club, Austria Wien. They won 24 titles and reached the final of the Cup Winner’s Cup in 1978. Last season they finished in 4th place, but this year the team didn’t even qualify for the Champions round. But if they finish in the first two places in this group, Austria Wien will get the chance to play in the Europa league play-off semi-final. Their odds to win their next game is 2.25.
