Games in the second division of German football will also continue this weekend. With 9 more rounds until the end teams still have the chance to finish in the top three places in order to get promoted to the top tier or play in the play-off. Bundesliga 2 winner odds favor current leader Arminia Bielefeld, but other teams can also fight for the title.
18 teams are competing in Bundesliga 2, which has an average of almost 22, 000 attendance, making it the most watched secondary league of the world. The level of football is very high thanks to teams like 1.FC. Nurnberg, SC Freiburg and 1. FC Koln, who are previous winners of the league. This season Nurnberg is only in 14th place, but other big teams, like VfB Stuttgart and Hamburger SV are doing great.
Bundesliga 2 winner odds predict Bielefeld’s win
Arminia Bielefeld are leading Bundesliga 2 after 25 rounds, 6 points ahead of VfB Stuttgart. The club goes back to a long history, it was founded in 1905. They had their most successful years in the 1920s, 1980s and most recently in the middle 2000s. The team was relegated from the Bundesliga after the 2008/09 season and even went down to the 3rd League in 2011. They returned back to the second tier in the 2015/6 season. They finished in 7th place last year, but under the management of Uwe Neuhaus the team is doing great so far. Bielefeld have every chance to win the league. Online sportsbooks in Germany are giving them the odds of 1.61 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
One of their biggest rivals is an even bigger club, VfB Stuttgart, which is also in the favorites in the Bundesliga 2 winner odds. The club has won the national championship five times, last time in 2006/07. But they were relegated to Bundesliga 2 after the 2015/16 season which they won straight away. After two seasons in the Bundesliga, they were relegated last year, forcing them to fight for promotion again. Their odds to win the league is 3.75 but surely fans would be happy with a second-place finish as well.
Other teams with a chance to win the league
Hamburg are only a point behind Stuttgart and still have a chance to catch even the leader Bielefeld. Third place would mean a play-off against 16th place team from the Bundesliga which might not be an easy game. So surely they will try to do everything to finish in the top two places. The six-time German champion was relegated to the second tier in 2018 for the first time in the Bundesliga’s 55-year history. Last season they finished in 4th place, now their odds to actually win the league is 5.50 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Fourth-place team 1.FC Heidenheim is a much smaller club compared to the above mentioned ones. It has been playing in lower leagues for most of its history. But now the team has a chance to finish in the top three, as they are only 3 points behind Hamburg and 4 behind Stuttgart. Online gambling sites in Germany are giving high odds for their final victory though with the odds of 34.00. All Bundesliga 2 teams will continue the competition this weekend, with all top three teams playing on Sunday.
