Although the English Premier League typically steals all the spotlight as far as the European football leagues are concerned, the status of that league as the number one league in the world is getting constantly challenged by the Spanish Primera Liga and the German Bundesliga. In this betting preview, we're going to take a closer look at what might happen in the latter in the upcoming season.

Bayern Munich, of course, is the number one favourite for the title and it looks impossible to see anyone challenging the dominance of that team despite its recent friendlies being far from ideal, which leaves punters with only the "Without Bayern Munich" market to consider unless they are fans of 1.10 shots. Borussia Dortmund will be looking to rebuild on the league front after a disastrous campaign in the previous season and the fact that they'll be without the Champions League is certainly going to help in that regard. They're slightly above Wolfsburg quality-wise in our opinion, so we'll back them to finish in the second place at 3.50 with Paddy Power.

The one team that we don't fancy at all is Hertha Berlin, who had to fight hard to avoid relegation in the previous season. The signing of Vladimír Darida looks reasonably promising, but there isn't much depth in the team, so it looks near-certain that they will be struggling for every single point yet again. At 4.00 with Bet365, we'll have a punt on them not avoiding relegation this time around.

If a bet on a goalscorer is what you're looking for, Kevin Volland is definitely a name to be considered in the hunt for value. The talented youngster will have plenty of opportunities in TSG Hoffenheim and he won't have to worry about any of the European cups either, so we're happy to back him each-way at 51.00 with Bet365.
