Dortmund are ranked as huge outsiders at +1400. It is an offer with little value other than the fact that it would be a huge coup to have taken such a bold chance on a big upset.
Second-placed Dortmund have been in patchy form and are two points behind ahead of their fixture away at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Seven Straight Home Wins
Bayern need only a draw to clinch their seventh successive championship as they have a vastly superior goal-difference of 52-35 against Dortmund.

Munich’s opponents this weekend, Frankfurt, have hit a rocky patch while they have been distracted by their efforts in the Europa League semifinal against Chelsea.
They have not won in five league games and have slipped to sixth place.
Dortmund, who led for much of the season, have lost twice in the last six games.
They will be travelling to face a Monchengladbach side eager for a win which would see them qualify in fourth place for next season’s Champions League ahead of fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen and sixth-placed Eintracht.
There is more scope for success in taking Dortmund at +280 to get a draw at Monchengladbach. Or in taking Monchengladbach to win the fixture at +183.
