2012 London Olympics Betting Odds: Men’s Handball

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

One of the fastest growing sports in the world is handball, and that will be on full display over the coming weeks in London for the 2012 Olympics.

Handball in the Olympics will feature a men’s and women’s competition, but it’s the men’s event which has really taken off.

And when it comes to the betting odds to win the gold medal in Team Handball in London, it’s France who leads the way. On the 2012 London Olympic Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook, France is going off at 15/8 on the betting line to win the gold medal, which is just under 2/1 payout.

But France is certainly not the favorite going away, as there are several other teams just behind them who oddsmakers believe will have a chance to win the gold medal.

At the top of these list of contenders is Denmark. Denmark could be labeled the silver medal favorite so to speak, coming in behind only France on the gold medal odds for Handball. Denmark has been slated at 3/1 to win the gold, which is actually not far behind France at all.

Croatia and Spain are both right behind France and Denmark as well, installed at 4/1 respectively on the betting line to win gold.

And when looking at these odds, it really looks like there will be four teams competing for three medals. Behind these top-four favorites, the odds spike rather significantly, going up to 16/1 for Iceland.

Clearly we can see a separation of these top four teams on the betting line, though there are only three medals which can be handed out. And while all of these countries would obviously like to win the gold medal, winning a medal is still an honor and an accomplishment.

Below, we have listed out the betting odds for both men’s and women’s handball, all the way down to the biggest underdogs in London. Check them out, and take a chance on one of these countries grabbing the gold.
