With goals flying in at a rapid rate during games, handball makes for compelling viewing live or on television.

It is also an ideal sport for betting purposes, with the online betting sites that cover the sport offering a wide range of markets. We help you choose the best handball bookmakers.

How we Rank Handball Betting Sites

We’ve shown you our list of the top handball betting sites in the UK, but how have we reached that conclusion and why should you trust what we say?

For starters, our team possesses loads of insider knowledge about the gambling industry – what we don’t know about the sector isn’t worth knowing.

With that in mind, here are some of the key elements we consider when ranking handball betting sites.

  • Industry Leading Handball Odds: Every punter wants to get value for money when placing bets. We compare the odds on sports betting sites to determine how they stack up against each other.
  • Handball Markets: While handball in the UK is a niche sport, plenty of punters enjoy wagering on it. When ranking sites, we like to see plenty of different markets available on all the matches.
  • Coverage of Handball Betting: To be included towards the top of our rankings, handball betting sites must offer odds on leagues and competitions from around the world.
  • Bonuses & Promotions: We love to see betting sites offer generous sign-up bonuses and ongoing promotions. The wagering conditions attached to them should make it easy to unlock any potential winnings.
  • Live Betting: Given the fast and furious nature of handball, it is a sport that lends itself perfectly to live betting. The sportsbooks we recommend excel with their in-play offering.
  • Live Streaming: One of our biggest bugbears when reviewing betting sites is discovering there is no live streaming available. Handball betting sites get extra points if they cover the sport live.
  • Licensing & Regulation: Some punters overlook the importance of this one, but we are keen to ensure that all the betting sites we recommend are fully licensed and regulated to offer their services in the UK.

Our ultimate aim when ranking handball betting sites is to improve your chances of making a profit from wagering on the sport.

Now we’ve explained a little bit about how we rank sportsbooks in the UK, let’s take a closer look at the operators that cover handball.

Handball Betting Markets Explained

There are loads of different handball markets available. The most popular ones are as follows:

  • Match Betting: Bet on which team you think will win a game or whether it will end as a draw. For instance, a match in the Portugal 1A Divisao during the 2021/22 season saw Sporting Clube Portugal priced at 4/9 to beat SL Benfica who were 23/10. The draw was on offer at 15/2. 
  • Draw No Bet: If you would rather take the draw out of the equation, some bookmakers will offer shorter odds on each team. If the match finishes as a draw, your stake is returned. 
  • Handicap Betting: The handicap market effectively levels the playing field between the two teams. If you fancied Benfica to win at Sporting Clube Portugal you could back them at 11/10 with a 1.5 start. This means they could lose by a single point, draw or win and your bet would be a winner.
  • Total Goals: Given the high-scoring nature of handball, the total goals market is extremely popular with punters. Using the same game as an example, bookmakers set a total of 60.5 points. Bettors must predict whether the total number of goals in the match will be over or under that tally.
  • Winning Margin: This market is a great way to bet on teams where there is a big disparity in their match betting odds. For example, BM Benidorm were priced at 1/25 to beat BM Antequera in a Liga ASOBAL game. However, if you fancied them to win by a big score you could get odds of 23/10 on a winning margin of 11 points or more.

Handball Betting Strategy

As with any sport, it is important to be strategic with your handball bets. Let’s look at the basics of handball and how you should wager on the sport.

Handball Basics

Players may stop, catch, throw, bounce or strike the ball in any manner and in any direction, using hands, fists, arms, head, body, thighs or knees.

However, players cannot intentionally touch the ball with any part of the body below the knee. The ball is almost always played with the hands.

Handball Betting Strategy Tips

  • Focus on totals.
  • Assess the winning margin markets.
  • Avoid short priced accumulators.
  • Use in-play betting to your advantage.
  • Take the under on total goals in the first half.
  • Don’t back the draw.

How to Bet: the Strategy

All of our strategy tips should help you become a better punter on handball.

However, one tip stands head and shoulders above the rest from a value perspective.

Many handball match betting markets are extremely one-sided, particularly when top teams meet sides further down the table.

However, there is value to be had by backing short-priced favourites in the in-play markets if they fall behind on the scoreboard early in the game.

Their odds will drift to a more backable price while they are trailing and you can use this to your advantage if you get your timing right.

With goals flying in at a rapid rate there is undoubtedly an art to maximising the effectiveness of this strategy, but it can be hugely profitable.

As we highlighted earlier, odds of 1/25 in the match betting market are prohibitive, but getting stuck into the in-play market can make a fancied team more attractive for punters.

How to Bet on Handball

Strategies and Betting TipsWe have given you an in-depth insight into handball and betting on the sport – now it’s time to look at the process of placing a bet.

We recommend using one of the handball betting sites we have highlighted as they can be trusted to deliver the best wagering experience.

How you place a bet can differ between different operators, but wagering on handball generally follows these steps.

  • Sign-up for a new betting account or login to an existing one.
  • Make a deposit.
  • Click on your chosen match and assess the markets.
  • Once you have made your selection, click the odds next to it.
  • Add more selections if you want to place an accumulator.
  • Enter your stake in the box on the betting slip.
  • Click ‘Place Bet’ to confirm.

If your bet is successful, the money will be credited to your betting balance by the bookmaker. You can choose to withdraw the cash or use it to bet again.

If you decide to withdraw, the money will generally be returned to your original payment method in around 2/3 working days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to verify my account?

Yes, online bookmakers are required to verify every account holder to comply with regulations. They will attempt to electronically verify your account where possible, but may require you to send photographic ID and proof of address.

Can I use my credit card to deposit?

No. The laws in the UK were changed in April 2020. Online bookmakers are no longer allowed to accept deposits made by credit cards. However, there are several ways you can fund your account including debit cards and digital wallets.
