Women’s handball at the Pan American Games once again returns with nations looking to end Brazil’s reign. Cuba’s women are currently the team to bet on Pan American Games 2019 with Argentina closely following behind. But who among the two could end the Brazilian women’s national handball team dominance at the 2019 Pan American Games?
This year’s women’s handball at the Pan American Games will run from 24 to 30 July in Peru. Brazil’s women are the reigning champions with 5 gold medals. However, these are some of the other women’s handball teams you can bet on Pan American Games 2019 on Bet365 Sportsbook:
|Puerto Rico Women||21.00|
Bet on Pan American Games 2019 women’s handball frontrunners Cuba
Cuba’s women are currently the nation to bet on Pan American Games 2019 handball with Bet365 Sportsbook odds at 1.95. They have yet to claim a handball win at the Pan American Games. Their best result in the competition was a 2nd place at the 2007 Pan American Games. However, they failed to achieve a better result in the following years with a 5th place finish in 2015.
Fortunately, with good odds on the online sportsbooks in Peru, Cuba’s women could potentially earn their 1st Pan American Games win. Additionally, Cuba’s women have been working hard in the past 4 years picking up several medals. These include:
- 2015, 2019 Nor.Ca. Handball Championship (Gold)
- 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games (Bronze)
- 2015 Pan American Championship (Silver)
Cuba’s women will play in Group A against Brazil, Puerto Rico and Canada. They will likely advance to the semifinals together with Brazil.
Argentina’s women aim for 1st Pan American Games women’s handball win
The Argentinian women’s national handball team also enter the 2019 Pan American Games with good odds to claim their 1st title. They were the 2015 silver medalists losing to Brazil 25-20 in a thrilling final. Fortunately, you can bet on Pan American Games 2019 women’s handball hopefuls Argentina to upgrade to gold with odds at 2.10. They will also enter with a respectable record in other regional competitions.
These include silver at the 2017 Pan American Championship. Additionally, Argentina’s women also claimed silver at the 2018 South and Central American Championship and 2018 South American Games. Argentina will have an easy start to the 2019 competition playing in Group B against Peru, USA and the Dominican Republic.
Puerto Rico look to celebrate their 4th Pan American Games women’s handball appearance with a top 3 finish
Puerto Rico currently stand a small chance on Bet365 Sportsbook to be the 2019 Pan American Games women’s handball champions. However, you can still bet on Pan American Games 2019 women’s handball hopefuls Puerto Rico (21.00) to make a surprise win. Consequently, Puerto Rico will have to put in a lot of effort as they play in Group A.
At the moment, the Group A teams Brazil and Cuba will likely advance to the semifinals. Argentina’s women will most likely have to fight against Cuba for the last semifinal spot. However, if they fail to achieve this, their best finish at the 2019 Pan American Games will be a 5th place finish.
USA women’s 2019 Pan American Games journey to come to end in the group stages
The United States women’s national handball team have a low chance of winning this year’s Pan American Games in Peru. According to the online sportsbook news in Peru, their chances of winning on Bet365 Sportsbook are a mere 126.00. The 2 time winners were last victorious in 1995. However, they failed to finish in the top 3 in the following competitions, making them a risky bet on Pan American Games 2019.
Overall in other regional and international competitions, USA women have also failed to claim top 3 finishes. After failing to qualify for the 2015 Pan American Games, they will be under pressure to make a significant comeback. Unfortunately, they play in Group A against strong contenders Argentina and the Dominican Republic. This means they’ll advance with hosts Peru to the 5th-8th place semifinals.
Hosts Peru won’t impress at the 2019 Pan American Games women’s handball event
According to Bet365 Sportsbook, Peru’s women handball are an unfavorable nation to bet on Pan American Games 2019. Their odds of winning are 301.00 making them another risky option to bet on. Although they will play at home, their lack of Pan American Games women’s handball experience will likely let them down.
Additionally, they’ll also play in a difficult group with Argentina and the Dominican Republic likely to advance to the semifinals. Seeing that Peru’s women will be Pan America’s debutantes this year, they’ll likely have to settle for an 8th place finish.
