What is handball sports betting? There are many different bets so let’s break it down.
The most straightforward betting type is where a bettor wagers on which team will win. They may also bet on which team they believe will win each half of the match.
There's also a betting type called spread betting. This is when a bettor wagers on a team winning, but they will only win the bet when their team scores more than a select number of goals over and above the opposing team. So, for example, if a bettor wagers on Team A -9.5, they will need to win by 9.5 goals over the other team.
A bettor can also wager on the cumulative total of all goals scored during a match. For example, if the bookmaker offers a line of 34.5, a bettor will win if the goals scored are 35 or above and lose if there are 34 or fewer goals. Say a team scores an odd or even number of goals; then, there is a bet for that too. Interestingly, a bettor can also wager on odds or evens for each half of the match.
Double Chance Betting
A bettor can also wager on two outcomes. This is called double chance betting, where a bettor can wager on the wins of two teams and a draw. If they think a team will win by a specific number of goals, they can place a winning margin bet. This is another type of bet that applies to the individual halves of the game.
A bettor can also wager on the team they believe will win the higher scoring half and the half of the match they think will have the higher score. If a team scores a particular number of goals before the other, there is a bet on which teams will score first and last.
A bettor can also wager on who they believe will beat all other teams during league tournaments. This includes the World Championship.
Wagering on a handicap bet in handball means that a bettor puts down money on a team they believe will either win or lose the game by a set amount. This will be indicted by a + or - sign. If a team has a + sign after their name on the board, they are allowed to lose by the number following the symbol.
On the other hand, if a team has an - after their name, they must win the game by more than the number following the symbol.
A bettor can wager how much a team will win by in handball. This almost always comes in the form of an over/under bet. If the number is over or under the amount you have selected, you will win your bet.
