Mens Handball Bundesliga Betting Odds
For men's handball, the 2 best professional leagues are the German Handball Bundesliga called HBL and the Spanish Liga Asobal (all bets on Liga Asobal). Based on their combined dominance of the intra-European Champions League competition, few would attempt to dispute their superiority over other European national leagues.
Betting on the Bundesliga of handball
The dominance of THW Kiel — a team from northern Germany and geographically close to Denmark, has prevailed since 2004. Rare are the seasons when Kiel has not won a trophy. The team has won nineteen titles in the last twenty-eight seasons, including the previous two editions in 2020 and 2021.
The season runs from September to June in two-legged matches for all eighteen teams, with no playoffs at the end of the season. The champion is the one with the most wins.
The top two teams in the league play in the next season in the Champions League, the third and fourth teams play in the EHF European Cup (all European Handball Cup betting), and the bottom two teams are relegated.

Recommended bets in the Bundesliga handball
The sheer competitiveness of the German league makes the Bundesliga different. New teams rise to the top of the league, while others disappear in the middle of the table every year, keeping the tournament unpredictable throughout the season.
The average number of goals in the Bundesliga has been 54.3 to 55.29 per game for the past few seasons.
A recommended bet on Bundesliga handball is to bet on the total number of goals in a match. Betting on/under several goals scored is the second most common type of betting in handball after betting on the point spread.
