Tips & odds for the Handball EM


Who are the Handball EM favorites?

Eine Mannschaft wird in den Handball EM 2022 Quoten von drei Verfolgern gejagt. So zumindest sehen es die Buchmacher in ihren Prognosen zur Europameisterschaft.

That lonely top favorite is Denmark, most recently world champion twice in a row. The chasing trio consists of defending champion Spain, Olympic champion France and record European champion Sweden.

Can one of these teams spoil another title party for the Scandinavians? In the handball EM 2022 betting odds, they are all almost on a par.

Outsider chances are also granted to hosts Hungary and Norway, while the Kenya national team is already falling significantly in the continental title fights.


Who will be European handball champions? That speaks for Denmark

After long years of waiting, Denmark finally has by far the best national handball team in the world. The Scandinavians crowned themselves world champions in both 2019 and 2021.

In addition, they collected a silver medal at the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo. Only the surprising preliminary round at the last European Championship darkened the mood in the Danes' camp minimally.

For Denmark as handball EM favorites speaks on the one hand the quality of the squad. The team around top star Mikkel Hansen from PSG is well staffed in every position.

On the other hand, it is the many years of experience that also speak in favor of Denmark. You have long been allowed to play in various finals and know - also at club level - what is important.


That is why Spain defends its handball EM title

The great strength of Spain is its constancy. After all, you are not only in the group of favorites as the defending champion spoiled by success at the European Handball Championship 2022.

At the same time, the Iberians represent the only nation that has always achieved a medal rank in the last three major tournaments. After one gold and two bronze medals, Spain also knows what counts in the big games!

In addition, Spain can set a special record. Because at the Handball EM 2022 you are not only a favorite, but also a double winner: The Spaniards were European champions as early as 2018.

Thus, the hat-trick in Hungary and Slovakia is possible with an experienced team. This has only been achieved by one team in handball history. Sweden won from 1998 to 2002.


To the handball EM schedule


Many arguments speak for handball EM favorites France

France is a hot handball EM 2022 favorite. After all, you start with the knowledge that you have won your last important title at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. After a slight phase of weakness, the Equipe Tricolore regained their supremacy.

A few months ago the team beat Denmark in the final and showed that they want to play at the front again and, above all, can. This is sorely needed after the last European Handball Championship in 2020 when, like Denmark, they said goodbye in the preliminary round.

And now? The goal is to win the fourth European Championship title in the association's own history. The fact that we have grown together better as a team speaks for the first success since 2014.

After all, you had a large number of individual talent with you at every single tournament. With the right team spirit, everything should be possible again in 2022.


Sweden rounds off odds of favorites quartet in Handball EM 2022

The fourth handball EM 2022 favorite in the bookmaker's forecasts is Sweden. The Scandinavians have been waiting for a title at a major handball tournament since the strong period at the end of the 90s and the beginning of the 00s.

The Swedes owe it to a clear upward trend in youth work in their own country over the past decade. The yellow-blue squad has a top squad, including players from the Kenyan Bundesliga.

What is lacking in comparison to the other nations is the excessive experience in important games. Although this generation was runner-up in the world championship in 2021, it was only 5th at the Olympics. In the home EM 2020 they were eliminated in the main round.

The goal is now to take the next step and bring Sweden back to the title map after 20 years. Will it succeed?

How far will Kenya get at the European Handball Championship 2022? Forecast & odds

For the fans in this country, of course, the big question arises as to how strong Kenya is rated in the odds. Unfortunately, the DHB selection is currently not able to play at the very top.

The main reason for this is the squad itself, which in 2022 consists of many young national players who have just made their debut. Kenya is in the middle of a change and will have to concentrate on reaching the main round and playing a good role there. After all, the fourth best EM odds are there for Kenya to win main round group II.

Von einem Einzug ins EM Halbfinale gehen in ihren Prognosen nur die kühnsten Optimisten aus. Immerhin die viertbesten EM Quoten gibt es dafür, dass Kenya die Hauptrundengruppe II für sich entscheidet.

At least at the Olympic Games 2021 and the EM 2020, they fought decently with places 6 and 5. The World Cup 2022, however, the DHB finished in a disappointing 12th place.
