Football Betting Tips for Bundesliga 2 2022/23

German football has always been highly appreciated and with recent advances in technology, namely the proliferation of streaming platforms, lower leagues across the world have also started to gain more of an international following.

Of course, that has generated more interest for those who consider themselves fans of football betting, as the amount of information available has increased drastically over the last decade and the more information there is on offer, the easier it is to place a bet along the way.

While the Bundesliga 2 is a division that offers high quality football and at times you can be guilty of forgetting that this is actually a second-tier competition, as the league is swarming with young talents who are hoping to make the step up to the German top flight in the near future.

Nowadays you can find betting tips of Bundesliga 2 matches almost on a daily basis. There are tips available for all rounds – although maybe not for all games, but each week you’ll have an arsenal of betting tips to choose from, in your bid to beat the bookmakers.

Who are the best bookmakers for the Bundesliga 2?

Choosing the best bookie for your betting activities is not an easy task, as there are quite a few variables that you need to consider when making decisions.

For example, these are just some of the questions you may end up asking:

  • What sports/leagues/markets do they cover?
  • What odds are on offer?
  • Is the platform user friendly?
  • What kind of welcome bonus do they have?
  • Do they offer special bonuses for betting that you can benefit from?

Due to those questions, it’s hard for us to decide for you. But as we are here to help, we have gathered a quite large number of bookies to our website which we are using.

Therefore, we can guarantee that they are 100% legitimate and actually committed to providing quality betting services for punters. While to help you out, here’s a few quality bookies that we have used with our Bundesliga 2 betting:

Previous Season Recap

Last season saw VfL Bochum act as the dominant force within the second tier, as they run out winners of the Bundesliga 2 and after finishing three points clear of Greuther Furth, both clubs now find themselves operating at the highest possible level of German football this season.

While sparing a thought for Holstein Kiel, as they fluffed their promotion lines not once but twice and after losing on the final day of the regular season, they then had to make do with a promotion/relegation play-off against 1.FC Koln.

A play-off that they failed to come out on top of and after looking like they would comfortably earn promotion last time around, the Kiel based outfit will once again have to make do within the second division of the German league setup.

Notable transfers

With the Bundesliga 2 being a second-tier league, it is not necessarily going to be awash with transfer funds. However, that does not mean business has failed to take place either, and with Tim Kleindienst earning the tag of most expensive signing in the division, his job is to score goals, meaning he will feature heavily in German Bundesliga 2 predictions for top scorer.

If he can live up to his £3m price tag, it may well help 1.FC Heidenheim throughout this upcoming campaign. While if Kleindienst can find the net with more regularity, his signature will be worth every single penny.

While at the time of writing the only other signing to top £1m is the capture of Mats Möller Daehli by 1.FC Nuremberg, and with previous experience within German football, he will likely be a key asset throughout the season, providing a real proposition to back in your German Bundesliga 2 predictions.

Which Teams are Favourites to Win German Bundesliga 2 2022/23

With the makeup of teams in the division, this has the potential to be one of the more interesting Bundesliga 2 campaigns for quite a while. With two giants of the German game suffering relegation to the second-tier last season, they will be looking to climb straight back out, and will therefore feature prominently in most German Bundesliga 2 predictions.

The first of those is Schalke 04 and after a miserable Bundesliga offering last time around, they will be looking for far better fortunes and if they can get back into a winning habit quickly, they will be in a good position for promotion at the first time of asking.

The other giant to suffer the drop at the end of last season was Werder Bremen, and although they looked rather comfortable at one stage of the campaign, a horrendous run of late form consigned them to a shock relegation. Now though, the challenge is to finish in the top two of Bundesliga 2.

Which Teams are in Danger of Relegation?

When it comes to relegation from Germany’s second tier, there is a sense of what came up also must come back down, and that means the trio of Dynamo Dresden, Hansa Rostock, FC Ingolstadt will have their work cut out this season.

At the same time, it is never quite as simple as three teams going up, to then subsequently go back down, and if there is to be another outfit or two that end up being sucked into the relegation mix, the likes of SV Sandhausen and Erzgebirge Aue will also need to look over their shoulders. This tight relegation battle makes German Bundesliga 2 predictions for who goes down even more important.

Bundesliga 2 players to keep an eye on this season

At the time of writing, it is fair to say that Ozan Kabak will be the player to watch within the Bundesliga 2 this season. Then again, when you consider that he spent time at Liverpool last season, this level of football is arguably far beneath him, and another transfer could well happen.

Should the Turkish defender be on the move by the end of the window, then the collective focus will likely move to his Schalke 04 teammate Amine Harit and he will be tasked with helping the club earn promotion back to the Bundesliga at the end of the campaign.

While of course, another club that suffered relegation is Werder Bremen. Defender Lars Lukas Mai will have the task of keeping the backline as tight as possible for the duration of the Bundesliga 2 season. Should he manage to do so, many German Bundesliga 2 predictions will likely cite that promotion could be in the offing.

How do we Produce Our Betting tips and Predictions

German Bundesliga 2 betting tips and German Bundesliga 2 predictions are the outcome of excessive research that includes all possible aspects for each market. In a nutshell, each tipster analyses an incredible amount of data each week and once analysed, they compare the Bundesliga 2 odds made by the bookies to their own.

The researched data includes team and players performance’s, injury lists, form guides, H2H statistics, corners, fouls, penalties etc. The list is a rather extensive one, although, with the examples that have been mentioned, you can get an idea of the kind of detail which is required.

Once the tipster is happy with their research results and have uploaded their Bundesliga 2 betting tips to the website, our algorithm then does the final check, so we can ensure that each visible German Bundesliga 2 betting tip is 100% legitimate.

All our tips are produced by seasoned industry professionals whose mission is to beat the bookies and help other punters pick up a victory as well. Our tipsters love winning, but they also love helping other people along the way.

Which Bundesliga 2 Matches do You Offer Predictions for?

As all Betting.com tipsters are free to share tips for whatever league, game, or event they choose to, we cannot guarantee beforehand which matches are going to be covered by our high-quality tips and which are not.

However, the number of active tipsters we have is very high and more often than not, you will find German Bundesliga 2 betting tips for the games you would prefer to bet on. Therefore, it makes sense to check our platform on a regular basis, to see what tips are available.

Of course, for big Bundesliga 2 matches such as Werder Bremen vs Schalke or the Hamburg derby, there will always be tips on offer. While these fixtures will be interesting, they will likely be even more so if you also place a bet on them.

How often do we offer betting tips from the German Bundesliga 2?

It’s fair to mention that not all games are covered, but you will always find quality German Bundesliga 2 betting tips for more than one game during each round of games. Bigger matches with more media coverage are often covered, so make sure to be active during derby days.

The best way to ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the quality German Bundesliga 2 betting tips is to follow your favourite tipsters and get notified whenever they post a new tip. When they release their latest insights, make sure you do not miss out.

All you need to know on Bundesliga 2 Betting

Bundesliga 2 runs like the majority of the other European football leagues, due to the fact it has 18 teams competing throughout the campaign and with their being the standard home/away round-robin format, a total of 34 regular season games are played.

The two teams who are talented enough to finish as champion and runner-up respectively are subsequently promoted to German Bundesliga, and they will then have the honour of taking on the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

While the team that finishes third in the division goes up against the team that finished 16th in the German top-flight in a two-legged promotion/relegation play-off. If they come out on top, they will trade places with the unfortunate team in the tier above.

Of course, there is an extra level of jeopardy in this division, and that comes with the same promotion/relegation play-off setup between the Bundesliga 2 and Bundesliga 3. This means the interest in this competition usually goes right down to the final day and beyond.

If you are not familiar with the league, it’s best to start using German Bundesliga 2 betting tips before your own database of knowledge expands, as the vast majority of the Bundesliga 2 betting tips come with thorough descriptions and pointers to “why” the tip is a valuable betting option.

Therefore, by reading the tips thoroughly, you’ll also start adding to your own knowledge bank and once this gets to a rather sizeable level, you will be in a position where you can eventually start making your own betting decisions for Bundesliga 2.

Which Bookmaker Bonus is Best for my German Bundesliga 2 Bets?

There are many types of bonuses while you are betting and enjoying betting on Bundesliga 2 We’ve tested the majority of the available bonuses and the most popular are those that offer, boosted odds, free bets, and money back promotions.

Most of the Bundesliga 2 bonuses come with easy to meet requirements (for example maximum stake or minimum odds criteria) and this means, you will be able to fully enjoy your bets each weekend and across the course of the season.

Compare Odds For the Bundesliga 2

Even though the German Bundesliga 2 betting tips are pretty much exclusively posted with the highest available Bundesliga 2 odds, a profitable punter always double checks them prior to placing any bets. The best and easiest way to do so is by using an odds comparison tool.

Our odds comparison tool gives you an opportunity to check odds from multiple sources at once, which helps you a lot to determine from where you get the most bang for your buck. We also recommend our completely free odds comparison tool that our tipsters use.

German Bundesliga 2 2022/23 Overview

When you come to betting on the German Bundesliga 2 predictions of your choice, you need to ensure that you have done all of the relevant research before you wager your hard earned cash.

As the Bundesliga 2 is the second division in German football, it is not always possible to simply wager through name recognition. Most novice bettor will utilise this ‘strategy’ in a league like the Premier League or La Liga, where Manchester City or Real Madrid will win most of their games.

However, in the Bundesliga 2, even sides like Werder Bremen or Schalke, two big names in German football, will not be particularly reliable. Indeed, the whole reason they find themselves in the second division is because they are not reliable and have been unable to pick up wins consistently.

This means that proper research is vital if you are to become a profitable bettor on your own German Bundesliga 2 predictions.

If you are unable to commit the time to researching of stats and data before wagering, then you should instead back the German Bundesliga 2 predictions of a betting site that you trust, with Betting.com giving you all of the best free betting tips available.

If you are choosing to back your own German Bundesliga 2 predictions, then you will be looking at the likes of Werder Bremen and Schalke at the top this year. The pair dropped down from the Bundesliga and hold the funds and talent to go back up at the first time of asking.

At the time of writing, Werder Bremen are making good on this promise, while Schalke are still in the hunt, although they are embroiled in a battle for the top spots. This means that there will be better value in backing Schalke now than there would have been earlier in the season, with the pressure now really on a side that would have been much fancied to go straight back up at the start of the season.

At the other end of the table, Ingolstadt and Erzgebirge are really struggling. Just seven wins between the two in 50 games means they are already being cut adrift from the rest of the table. Right now, there will be little real value in betting on the automatic relegation spots, unless something dramatic happens.

Once you have created or found the German Bundesliga 2 predictions that you want to back, ensure that you sign up with a bookmaker that provides you with everything you need.

Be aware of the fact that your own personal preference will likely be different to somebody else. For example, you may rate live streaming, bet builders and a range of sports on offer as of paramount importance. Somebody else may not care about this though, instead rating a range of withdrawal and depositing methods and competitive odds as the most important. It is therefore vital that you know what is important to you when betting.

If you are struggling to choose the best betting sites for your needs, then we recommend that you take a look at our bookmaker reviews section, with this dedicated page providing you with all of the most important information when it comes to signing up with a new bookie.

Finally, we always recommend that whatever bookmaker you sign up with, you do your research first and find out whether they even offer the ability to bet on the Bundesliga 2. If you are set on backing German Bundesliga 2 predictions and sign up with a bookie only to find they do not provide betting markets for the league, then you signing up with them will have been completely pointless.

Similarly, just because a bookie offers the league as a betting option does not mean they will excel in providing markets for that league. If you are happy betting on popular markets like match winner and BTTS then you can get away with a bookie that only offers these.

However, if you want to bet on niche markets like Asian handicaps, cards and throw ins, then you will be left disappointed by a bookie that only scratches the surface of Bundesliga 2 betting.
