Handball is one of the sports disciplines that needed time to gain its popularity among sports betting lovers. The reason for this is that everything starts with the fact of how some sports discipline is popular among sports fans.

And handball is one of the hardest games to play and it can hardly be played outside its original form. For instance, basketball and football can be played in different forms. Handball requires some tactical knowledge of this sports discipline. And only in the last 10 years or so, handball became more popular outside continental Europe and Scandinavia, spreading its tentacles, mostly, to South America.

Then come the EHF Cup and the EHF Challenge Cup. Another international league is the SEHA League, where various teams from eastern and southeastern Europe compete. Matches that are played in these tournaments are interesting for betting from various aspects. Overall, handball is very good for live betting (for example, on total goals if the favorite team starts the match badly) and odds are growing faster than in soccer and basketball. Generally, when it comes to handball, bookmakers have different types of handicaps in which the bookmaker assigns + or – handicap to each team. That number of goals is then added to – or deducted from + to determine the final score and, subsequently, the outcome of the bet. If you want to learn how to bet on handball, any kind of insight based on the analysis of a team’s form, individual player performances and even benefits that certain team has from a home-field advantage can be useful, right?

German Handball-Bundesliga, French Ligue Nationale de Handball, Spanish Liga ASOBAL, Hungarian NB I, Polish Ekstraklasa, and Danish Handball Ligaen are the most popular and have the most sponsorship money invested in. Somehow the logical choice when it comes to betting on these leagues is how many goals will be scored by a team in a fixture, either over or under some figure set by the bookmaker.

A little tip: in handball, it is important that you have fresh info about the games because sometimes favorites have Euro Cup games at the end of the week. That might be an advantage for the away or underdog team because, in these cases, favorites rarely run over rivals, allowing them to be near when it comes to the final outcome of the match.
