As expected, the Bavarians are massive favorites to earn all three points when they host Augsburg this weekend. Let's examine the soccer betting odds and see where our edge lies.

Odds Overview
No surprises on the soccer odds board. Bayern Munich is a humungous favorite in a wide range starting at -675 and going up to -800 at Bet365.

Augsburg, then, is a massive underdog, approaching +2000 to secure what would be one of the most unlikely of wins we've ever seen in the Bundesliga. A draw, quoted at anywhere from +800 to +850, also seems extremely unlikely to come through for those willing to take that chance.


Bayern Munich
For the most part, it's been a walk in the park for FCB so far in Bundesliga action, as they've won all three of their matches while posting a goal differential of plus nine. They took part in a friendly last week and lost 3-0, but they didn't sent out a lot of second and third-choice options in the starting XI, and it was a friendly. Enough said; don't look into that result much.

When fielding their full strength team, we've seen what Bayern is capable of. In the Bavarians' most recent Bundesliga match, they thumped Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 at home, with Thomas Muller netting a brace and Arjen Robben also finding the back of the net. FCB had 63 percent of the possession and always looked in control, and we should see more of the same this weekend, particularly since they'll be facing an even weaker opponents.

Muller has enjoyed a fantastic individual start to his campaign, having scored five goals in only three league matches so far. He'll lead the line again versus Augsburg and you wouldn't put it past him to get on the scoresheet once, at the very least. Don't forget about the likes of Robben, Robert Lewandowski, or Douglas Costa, among others, either going forward, and the goalkeeper and defensive situation looks amazing for Bayern too. Simply put, this is one of the best outfits in the world.


A rough start has seen Augsburg muster up just one total point in three matches. FCA lost to both Hertha BSC and Ingolstadt and then drew 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt, and they've scored a grand total of one goal in the process. It's been ugly.

Expectations were a little higher for the club after they finished a very respectable eighth place in last season's Bundesliga campaign, but so far they've fallen way short. What's worse, now they have to go to Munich and contend with the best team in the country, on their stomping grounds. 

Sure, there are some quality pieces within the squad, but on the whole Augsburg is at a massive disadvantage here, and we can expect them to try and pack it in and grind out a draw. Even doing that would be a remarkable achievement and one we don't count on happening.


Bundesliga Pick
We've broken down Bayern Munich's matches many times in the past, and we've pretty much always sided with them to win by a comfortable margin. Nothing is going to change this time around.

FCB is looking strong as ever, and the home support inside Allianz Arena never hurts either. This should be another convincing win for Bayern, but the tricky part is manipulating our soccer odds pick so that we're getting the most bang for our buck.

So, instead of taking on a bunch of chalk and going with the straight moneyline play, we're going to recommend you consider picking them to win by two goals, at the very least. You're probably safe making your soccer pick to win by even three goals or more, as we just don't see any way Augsburg will be able to keep pace here.
