      Tip Reasoning

      The dominant Bundesliga champions started their campaign with an equally dominant performance over Hamburger a few weeks ago. They won 5-0 in the end, with Mehdi Benatia, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and Douglas Costa all getting on the scoresheet.

      They were slightly less dominant last weekend when they travelled to Hoffenheim, but still managed a 2-1 victory over the home side, with Muller and Lewandowski finding the net again after Kevin Volland equalled the fastest ever Bundesliga goal at 14 seconds.

      These were 2 very expected wins for the Bundesliga champions, but nonetheless it is still always important to get your season up and running quickly.

      Bayer Leverkusen could be a bit more of a challenge though, although the Allianz Arena is a fortress.

      The visiting team could also be a bit drained from their midweek Champions League playoff against Lazio. They won 3-0 after losing the first leg in Italy, and have made it to the group stages safely.

      Bayer Leverkusen also hold a perfect record in the Bundesliga after the first 2 games. They beat Hoffenheim on the opening day before defeating Hannover last weekend.

      Leverkusen actually managed to beat Bayern Munich last season, with a 2-0 victory at home causing Munich to drop a rare 3 points.

      Before this, Bayern Munich had won 3 of the previous 5 matches, with the other 2 ending as draws.

      But Bayer Leverkusen tend to hold their own against the German giants and have not lost by more than 1 goal since 2012.

      This makes odds of 1.975 for a Bayer Leverkusen +1.5 Asian Handicap Win look like incredibly good value, especially considering the trouble that Bayern Munich had last weekend against Hoffenheim. This means Bayer Leverkusen can lose the match by 1 goal, draw or win and we still win our bet – we only lose if Bayern Munich win by 2 or more goals!

      We still think Bayern Munich will get a win though, with a 2-1 correct score bet coming in at the fair price of 7/1.
