Betting on Borussia Dortmund in 2023/24

Borussia Dortmund have lost some significant names in recent years with Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham as the two most obvious omissions from their squad. The German club have unfortunately had to sell their best players and have fallen behind Bayern Munich because of that. However, Dortmund put up a fantastic fight against Munich in the Bundesliga last season, Borussia Dortmund betting odds imply that we won't see similar success this season but with a young talented squad, anything is possible for Dortmund this year.

The best competition to bet on Dortmund is the DfB Pokal as Bayern Munich have had a monopoly on the Bundesliga title and the UEFA Champions League appears to be a step too far for Dortmund in recent years with Sporting Lisbon and Chelsea knocking Dortmund out of the competition in the last two seasons.

Betting on Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga

The 2022/23 Bundesliga season will go down as one of the most exciting title races in recent years. Going into the final day, Dortmund simply needed to beat Mainz 05 to clinch the title, they draw 2-2 and Jamal Musiala scored a late winner for Bayern Munich who pipped Dortmund to the title at the last possible hurdle.

This season, it is difficult to Dortmund outdo their 2022/23 performance. They are a side with a lot of quality but six defeats away from home last season ruined their charge. They ended the season picking up 46 points from a possible 57 and looked almost certain to win the league before the final day. If they can pick up where they left off, Dortmund could be a fantastic team to bet on as their open fixtures are favourable.

Betting on Borussia Dortmund in UEFA Champions League

Borussia Dortmund are arguably the toughest team to bet on when it comes to the UEFA Champions League, when you expect them to win, they struggle and when you expect them to lose, they put up a good fight. Last season was a good example of this, as only a late Erling Haaland goal stopped them getting a result against Manchester City at the Etihad but in their final game against Copenhagen, the Danish side had 9x the amount of shots on target as Dortmund.

We're expecting a round of 16 defeat for Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League this season. However, this could change depending on their group, if it is favourable they could go far, if it is unfavourable, it wouldn't surprise many if they were eliminated at the Group Stage and dropped into the Europa League.

Betting on Borussia Dortmund in DfB Pokal

Since Dortmund's resurgence, they have won the DfB Pokal three times with their first success since 1989 coming in 2011. They have made the final five times since then but have also been knocked out of the competition by St Pauli and Werder Bremen (twice) in the last five years. They will always be favourites to win the competition alongside Bayern Munich and we often expect them to win those games but the odds don't always tell the story and Dortmund end up losing to other teams in Germany.

The German Cup could be the best chance of silverware for Borussia Dortmund and as a team, it's clear they have no issues scoring goals but its at the other end of the pitch where they might struggle.

Betting on Borussia Dortmund transfers

Borussia Dortmund are becoming well-known for selling their biggest players. However, typically, these players have been sold to Bayern Munich is the past, now it seems like other European clubs have managed to outprice Bayern for the biggest Dortmund targets. Manchester United's purchase of Jadon Sancho, Real Madrid's purchase of Jude Bellingham and Manchester City's purchase of Erling Haaland are the three most notable instances.

In regards to incoming's Dortmund's policy tends to be purchasing younger players, Felix Nmecha and Karim Adeyemi are just two examples. However, they have made it known that if a high quality player is available, they will put their hand in their pocket, Sebastien Haller and Marcel Sabitzer are two high profile incomings that sit closer to 30.

When looking at who Dortmund may sign in the coming months, we believe that they'll look to bring in young defenders with both Mats Hummels hitting an older age, Niklas Sule has been brought in as his defensive partner but Dortmund losing Manuel Akanji last season was a major loss to their defence.

One player who may be on their way out of Dortmund is Marco Reus, the Dortmund legend recently announced that he was stepping down as captain of Borussia Dortmund, which could mean that he is on his way out of the club soon or his gametime is coming to a halt. If Reus is playing, he can often be relied on for goal bets. However at 34, Reus's gametime will be limited no matter where he plays.

Best Betting Tips for Borussia Dortmund

Similar to the Bundesliga as a whole, Borussia Dortmund betting tips fit around the goals betting markets. Both teams to score in both halves is something that has happened quite commonly for Borussia Dortmund, particularly when comparing with teams in other leagues. The best bet to add your bet slip from a Dortmund point of view would be over 2.5 goals in a game, at the start of last season, they won a lot of games 1-0 but towards the backend of the campaign, they conceded significantly more goals, we think that will continue leading to Dortmund games being classic affairs next season viewed the entirety of Europe.
