Print

Handball is a team sport which appeared in Germany in 1915. It is played on rectangular fields with the sides of 40m and 20m, and the two teams, formed of seven players each, must score the biggest number of goals into the adversary gate. The matches are played in two halves of thirty minutes each, with possibility of recovery.

The purpose: three steps without passing the ball or ground jump. The attacking team must try to score a goal without entering the area. There are two-minute temporary suspensions off the playing field.

Markets :

1-X-2 FINAL RESULT

This is the classical game which predicts the victory of one of the two teams, host and guests, or a draw.

In case of X, the draw is considered at the end of the regular play time. Extra time is therefore excluded.

DOUBLE CHANCE

Also in handball, one may bet on double chance:

1X, X2, 12.

This type of game allows the doubling of the possibilities to win by indicating two possible final results out of three.


UNDER / OVER

Under / over is the classical bet on the score totalized by both teams in the regular play time, without considering the extra time.

The under/over threshold varies significantly depending on the championship on which it is bet.


The possibilities are:

>1 - Less than x goals

>2 - More than x goals
