This year, the world championship will take place in Spain on the Mediterranean coast in venues between Barcelona and Valencia.
When it comes to online sports betting, women's handball is a sport with momentum. A team can go down in flames even when scoring goal after goal. These are opportunities for bettors who feel the tide turning.
Recommended betting on teams with a bench
Initially, the competition is divided into eight groups of four from A to G, which will serve as a warm-up with a match every other day. Next, three groups will be knocked out in the main round, composed of four groups of six teams. The groups from I to IV are already drawn together, so group A will be mixed with groups B, C with D.
During this main round, the matches always take place with a 48h rest between the games. Thus, nations with a well-stocked bench will be at an advantage when it comes to keeping their best players fresh.
World divided into three parts
In group I, we find France and Russia together — revenge for the last Olympic Games. In group II, Norway will face the Netherlands. Germany and Denmark will meet in group III and finally Croatia with Spain for group IV. The first two of each group will go through to the quarterfinals.
For the third phase, we enter the direct elimination matches. At this stage of the competition, we should find our favourite nations. All the matches will be played in Granollers, with the gold medal match taking place on December 19.
Bet on the favourites
Nobody has won more in women's handball than Norway. The Norwegians consistently have new generations of players that continue the winning cycles. In the last tournament, Norway lost in the semi-finals to Russia. Of the three major titles, Norway is the European champion. A victory in this Women's World Cup will offer the possibility to defend this title in two years home ground.
The Russian team is the bettors' second favourite. Olympic runner-up Russia is the nation that has won the most world championships with seven victories in the final. Bet on the women's Olympic handball games on our sports betting site.
France, the Olympic champion this summer in Tokyo, is one of the favourites. Their victory at the Olympics has allowed the French to complete the trinity with titles in the three major tournaments - a feat that only Denmark and Norway have achieved in their history.
