Matchday 3 of the 2020-21 German Bundesliga season will close down Sunday, October 4, with the Bayern Munich vs. Hertha Berlin showdown at Allianz Arena in Munich.

The Bavarians entered the new season as the reigning German and European champs, but they were humiliated at Hoffenheim in the previous round of the Bundesliga. 

It would be interesting to see their reaction this weekend against the Old Lady from the capital, so I’m bringing you the best Bayern vs. Hertha betting pick and tips.

Bayern vs. Hertha Odds

Bayern -2.5+114
Hertha +2.5-130
Bayern to Win-667
Hertha to Win+1686
Over 4.0+100
Under 4.0-111

The Bavarians are often listed as massive favorites at Allianz Arena, and Sunday’s clash against Hertha is no different. If you want to back the hosts and still get some reasonable odds, you’ll have to take Bayern to cover.

The bookies expect the Bavarians to dominate the Old Lady and score a few goals along the way.

Previewing the Match

Bayern Munich has already won a couple of trophies this season. The Bavarians beat Sevilla 2-1 in overtime in the UEFA Super Cup, while they outlasted Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in the German Super Cup this past Wednesday.

However, the Bavarians suffered an embarrassing defeat in the previous round of the German Bundesliga. They lost at Hoffenheim 4-1 as huge -500 road favorites, and it could have been much worse.

Bayern snapped a 23-game win streak, and that tells you how dominant the Bavarians have been lately.

Forward Serge Gnabry leads the way for Bayern with three goals in all competitions. Striker Robert Lewandowski scored just a goal, but he tallied five assists, while forward Thomas Muller has a couple of goals and assists.

On the other side, Hertha opened the new Bundesliga season with an excellent 4-1 road victory over Werder Bremen. Four different guys scored for Hertha including striker Jhon Cordoba who arrived from FC Koln in the offseason.

However, the Old Lady was helpless in the previous round, losing to Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 at home. It was quite a poor performance, and Hertha found the net thanks to Martin Hinteregger’s own goal.

Bayern vs. Hertha Pick

Under Hans-Dieter Flick, the Bavarians are working like a well-oiled machine. They have some slight problems at the back, but that 4-1 defeat at Hoffenheim was an anomaly. The Bavarians just had to have one bad day in the office after months of pure domination.

Therefore, I expect the Bavarians to restore their dominance Sunday and beat Hertha by three or more goals.

Let’s make this clear. It’s never easy to beat someone by a three-goal margin, but at +114 odds, this one’s worth a shot. Finally, you’re backing the best team in Europa, and probably in the world, to thrash off Hertha at home.

The visitors will park the bus at Allianz Arena, for sure. They will defend for all 90 minutes, looking for some chances through counter-attacks, but the hosts have so many dangerous weapons that I would be surprised if they score less than three goals.

Robert Lewandowski netted just once this season, so look after him if you like to bet on player props. Last season, Hertha pulled off a huge upset at Allianz Arena, earning a 2-2 draw, while Lewandowski scored a brace for Bayern.

In the second game in Berlin, the Bavarians dismantled Hertha 4-0, and Lewandowski scored once.

  • Bayern Munich -2.5
