2019 Handball-Bundesliga Betting Predictions
Rasmus Lauge Schmidt

The handball club has a good lineup this season and their players to watch are Rasmus Lauge Schmidt and Magnus Jøndal. They are the clubs top goalscorers and are in the top 30 of the Players Ranking.

THW Kiel stand a good chance to make it 21 HBL titles this year

THW Kiel have won the most Handball-Bundesliga seasons with an impressive 20 titles. The 2019 Handball-Bundesliga betting predictions foresee THW Kiel regaining their champion status with odds standing at 3.75.  

They’ve massively improved from last season where they finished 5th with 49 points. Now, they’re second in the league with 46 points. THW Kiel have won 24 and lost 3 out their 27 games.

Similarly to SG Flensurg-Handewitt, THW Kiel are also well positioned to qualify for the elite European handball Champions League.  If they can continue on this run avoiding losing anymore games, then they can lift their 21st trophy this June.

Rhein-Neckar Löwen hope to erase memories of last year’s title miss by winning the 2019 Handball-Bundesliga season

Rhein-Neckar Löwen stand a small chance to win this year’s Handball-Bundesliga season with odds at 51.00. Their 2018 title miss is still fresh on their minds. THW Kiel finished last season with 55 points behind top contenders SG Flensburg-Handewitt with 56 points. Losing the title by that much is painful for any fan to witness. Fortunately, the club still managed to walk away with Champions League qualification.

2019 Handball-Bundesliga Betting Predictions
Jannik Kohlbacher

Their progress so far in the season could be better as they’ve only managed to pick up 42 points from 27 games. They have also dropped many points by losing 5 and drawing 2 games.

They are lucky to be with Jannik Kohlbacher who transferred to their team last year. Kohlbacher is currently inside the top 15 of the Handball-Bundesliga Player Rankings and he’s proving to be an asset for THW Kiel. The German pivot has made an impact for his new club by contributing 121 goals so this season. He also has a good shooting accuracy at 76.10%.

SC Magdeburg aim for Champions League qualification

SC Magdeburg have the lowest odds among the other 3 competitors to be the 2019 Handball-Bundesliga champions. They are 3rd in the league and will most likely qualify for the EHF Cup. SC Magdeburg (201.00) are in a good position to win the title, but the number of games they’ve lost so far is worrying.

The handball club only won the title once in 2001, whilst the other teams have all been victorious in the 2010s. They’ve have lost 6 games from 27 games whilst the other title hopefuls have lost 5 or less games. SC Magdeburg will be a risky team to bet on according to the online sportsbooks in Germany.

SC Magdeburg do have left wing Matthias Musche who is the league’s current top performer, a plus for the club. He has scored the most goals in the season with 211 goals and a 73.26% shooting accuracy. The left wing will be under pressure to help the team to a league win and Championship League qualification.
