German Cup Betting
DFB Pokal Betting Odds
By placing a bet on the DFB Pokal, you get the opportunity to participate in the best national club cup competition in Germany, which begins with a first-round consisting of 64 teams.
On the starting line, there are all the teams from Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga, plus some teams from the 3. Liga and teams from regional leagues. With bwin, you can place your bets on the German third division.
Format of the German Cup
The draw for the next stage of the Cup is made before each round. At the outset of the competition, each team is only four wins away from reaching the final. This can make for an exciting football bet as every player, coach and fan dreams of lifting a trophy, and this is the shortest way to add new silverware to their trophy cabinets.
The winners of both Bundesliga and the previous DFB Pokal are exempted from the first round, which takes place in the same week as the German Supercup. Make bets on the German Supercup on our online sports betting platform.
Bet on the DFB Pokal
With Germany's top clubs taking part in the early rounds in a full draw, there are always a few big clashes to anticipate. In addition, the lower league and amateur teams try to outdo each other, which provides a good opportunity for German Cup betting odds on the underdogs.
At the end of the competition, the winner of the German Cup gets a ticket to the next edition of the Europa League. Make your bets on the Europa League — an international football cup officially sponsored by bwin for the next few seasons.
Recommended betting on the German Cup
The German football club FC Bayern dominates both the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal — they've won the most trophies in DFB Pokal history. Therefore, we recommend betting on the Bavarian team to lift the trophy once more.
The rules in the DFB Pokal are simple: in the event of a draw at the end of full time, extra time is given, after which penalties will be played if necessary. Another recommended bet is to wager on which team will qualify since there are only two possibilities.
Without the almighty Bayern in the race, this leaves the way wide open for all other teams to win an end of season trophy. The bets on the future winner have opened up considerably.
Borussia Dortmund won this competition last season and will try to retain their title. The Yellow and Blacks have been impressive at times this season and currently sit atop the Bundesliga standings.
RB Leipzig will probably finish last in their Champions League group. Without a European Cup, this will lighten their fixture list and allow the club to fully concentrate on domestic competitions.
After eliminating Bayern in style, M'Gladbach is one of the favourites to make a good run in the German Cup.
