Handball Betting



Handball is a team sport, which in its modern form originated in 19th century in Northern Europe, while its current rules were published in 1917 in Germany. In handball two teams consisting of seven players each compete to get the higher score by throwing the ball using hands into the goal. It is popular mainly in Europe, especially in Germany, Spain, France and Poland. If you are interested in handball betting with best odds, you’ve come to the right place!

International and Regional Handball Competitions

As in most modern sports, there are separate handball competitions for men and women. The first international tournament for men was held in 1925, while the first international women’s event was held only five years layer – in 1930. Today handball is part of Summer Olympic Games, where it is played since 1936 by men and since 1976 by women.

Handball is regulated by IHF, an international federation which was created in 1946 and is now currently located in Basel, Switzerland. It consists of six continental federations in Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, Oceania, and South and Central America, with a total of 209 national associations. IHF organizes major national competitions, including world championships which are held every two years. There are also international events for club teams.

As the sport is popular mainly in Europe, it is also reflected on the professional scene, which is heavily dominated by Europeans. Just take a look at the history of World Championships – Europeans won all medals in men competitions since 1938, while in women’s competitions only two medals were received by non-European countries – Brazil and Korea.

An example of such an event may be a 2-minute penalty, which can change the odds by up to two times.

Realize Your Strategy with Tips from Our Experts

The following handball betting tips can help you increase your chances for a successful game outcome prediction.

  • Consider the game’s dynamics

Handball is a very active and dynamic sport. Often, there are teams that score powerfully in the first half of the game and then slow down. Compare team tactics to highlight this feature, for example, for using 1st Half prop bets.

  • Get info about the goalkeeper

Before placing a bet on handball, make sure you learn the performance of both teams’ goalkeepers during previous games. Since a goalkeeper is a key player, his form can play a decisive role.

  • Explore the accuracy of penalties

Very few handball games are played without penalties. So, it makes sense to evaluate the performance and statistics of penalty kick players to understand who has the advantage.

  • Analyze player injuries

In most dynamic sports, injuries are game-changers. But in handball betting, it is almost a decisive factor. Always follow the players and the injuries (even minor ones) that they get.

  • Explore the real time betting

Since handball is a very dynamic game, where underdogs and favorites can exchange their positions several times per quarter, try to bet on live events. This approach may bring a lot of opportunities and high cash prizes. However, note that this tip is suitable only for players who understand the game's principles and the teams' strategies well.
