Finally, note that the number of draws in handball remains quite low. In the last edition, there were 13 draws in total in the competition, which represents a little less than 10% of the matches. Therefore, you should bet on a win for one of the two teams, without worrying about a draw, which happens only 1 out of 10 times. Expert advice!
