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.
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.
