Bookmakers offering the best Handball betting odds

Probably the greatest sport to have never taken off in the English speaking world, handball was created in Denmark in the 19th century and has been dominated by the Europeans ever since.

In fact, in Men and Women’s Handball World Championship and Olympic history, only four times has the title gone to a non-European nation – South Korea three times and Brazil once.

At the latest Olympic Games, Denmark took the gold over France in the final, but it’s France who have been the dominant force in recent years, winning Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012, plus the handball World Championship title in 2017. In the women’s game, France are no less dominant winning four of the previous five World Championships and taking the silver at the last Olympic Games.

In the club game, it’s again Europe who dominate but in the men’s game, it’s mainly Spain and Germany who are top dogs. Indeed, for a 10-year period the EHF Champions League was only won by German and Spanish clubs, however, that stranglehold is definitely loosening now with the French, Polish, Hungarian and Macedonian sides coming on strong in recent years.

In terms of the women’s game, well that’s become very Eastern European centric lately with the last seven winners all coming from that part of the world. The dominant force though is Gyor Audi ETO from Hungary who have won four of the last six titles and lost one more on penalties. They average attendances of nearly 3,000 back in Hungary which by contrast is more than most of the top flight men’s Hungarian football sides. Vardar women and men, the dominant force in Macedonian handball, both pull in higher attendances than every single men’s Macedonian football sides, which just shows how popular handball is in that part of the world.

And when it comes to the final four in the Champions League, well, last year’s women’s edition was a 12,000 seater sellout in Budapest while the men’s was a 19,250 seater sellout in Cologne.

You bet on the Handball Champions League, the World Championships, the Olympic Games, and more right below, with Double Chance bets, Handicap bets, Total Goal bets, and in-play just some of the markets open across European handball.
