Basketball Bundesliga Germany Betting Odds
The Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) is the highest-level professional club basketball league in Germany and consists of 18 teams that play each other in home and away matches during the regular season.
Basketball is very popular in Germany — partly because of two German players who have made great careers in the NBA: Detlef Schrempf and Dirk Nowitzki.
In addition to the league competition, all BBL teams and lower divisions compete for the German Cup - the BBL-Pokal. Throughout the season, make basketball bets on our online sports betting platform.,
Betting on the Basketball Bundesliga
A BBL season runs from September to June and is divided into two stages: a championship followed by a second stage with playoffs for the top eight teams, while the bottom two are relegated to the Pro A.
The three rounds of the playoffs are played on a best-of-five basis, with the top-ranked team from the regular season playing the first, third and fifth games at home.
On the other side of the draw, the bottom two teams are relegated to the second division, which is called the ProA. The third division is called the ProB.
ALBA Berlin, the team from the German capital, and Bayern Munich are the two Bundesliga basketball teams that regularly liven up the season, especially when the cut-off games come around.
Betting on German basketball teams in Europe
Most, if not all the teams that make the playoffs qualify for one of the four European basketball competitions the following season.
Bayern Munich has a long-term license to play EuroLeague basketball every season. But no German team has made it to the final in the EuroLeague. Place your bets on the EuroLeague basketball tournament on our online sports betting platform.
German teams are slowly rising in recognition and have managed to play in some European finals — the EuroCup 2019 final for ALBA Berlin, and the FIBA European Cup for Oliver Würzburg.
For the other FIBA competition (FIBA Champions League bets), Riesen Ludwigsburg and Brose Bamberg were among the final four.
Recommended betting in Bundesliga basketball
As with most basketball games, we recommend betting on the team with a good points spread. This is called a handicap basketball bet.
Since basketball is a sport where the score keeps changing with the pace of the game, we also recommend placing a live bet.
In previous seasons, top teams finished with between 2900 to 3100 total points scored during the regular season and a positive point differential of up to +466.
