Brazil are the most successful handball nation with a total of 3 gold, 4 silver medals and 1 bronze medal. Additionally, Brazil have finished the tournament in the top 3 since it’s 1987 inauguration. Brazil will play in a relatively easy Group B against Puerto Rico, Mexico and Peru.
2015 Pan American Games Handball silver medalists Argentina return for gold
Argentina currently have the 2nd best 2019 Pan American Games Handball betting odds to win gold in Peru. According to the online sportsbook news in Peru, Brazil could be the 2019 champions with Bet365 Sportsbook odds at 2.62. In 2015, Argentina could have walked away as the gold medalists. However, they suffered a narrow defeat against Brazil in the 2015 final 29-27 in extra time.
Fortunately, this year they can bounce back and claim their 2nd Pan American title. Argentina will start the 2019 competition with a respectable record of straight top 3 finishes since the 1995. Similarly to Brazil, Argentina are unlikely to face any obstacles in the group stages. They will play in Group B against Cuba, Chile and the USA.
Cuba look to get back to winning ways in Peru
Together with Brazil, Cuba (3.45) have won the most handball gold medals at the Pan American Games. They were victorious in 1991, 1995 and 1999. However, their performance started to decline following their 3rd place finish at the 2007 Pan American Games. Then, Cuba failed to qualify for the 2011 competition and had to settle for a 6th place finish in 2015.
According to our 2019 Pan American Games Handball betting predictions, Cuba have the potential to make significant improvements in Peru. Cuba have been working hard in the past 2 years winning the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games. Additionally, they were gold medalists at the Nor.Ca Championship and silver medalists at the 2019 IHF Emerging Nations Championship. Consequently, Cuba could achieve a 3rd place 2019 Pan American Games.
USA unlikely to advance past group stages
The United States currently have the lowest chances of winning the 2019 Pan American Games Handball on Bet365 Sportsbook. In 1987, they made history by winning the handball competitions at the 1st Pan American Games. Since then, they’ve failed to win the competition. Unfortunately with 2019 Pan American Games Handball betting odds at 1001.00, they won’t repeat their 1987 success in Peru.
Additionally, their record in the past 3 competition also make them a risky nation to bet on Bet365 Sportsbook. They failed to qualify for the 2007 competition. Then they finished 7th in the 2011 competition and after failed to qualify for the 2015 competition.
They will also play in a Group A with difficult opponents Argentina, Cuba and Chile. As a result, the United States will likely fail to advance to the semi finals.
