Danish women’s handball is one of the strongest in Europe, with top teams and star players taking part in it. Team Esbjerg are the defending champions and one of the favorites in the Danish women’s handball championship odds. But they face tough competition from other big teams like Odense and Viborg.
Denmark is a great power in women’s handball, the national team has won the Olympic gold three times. They also got one World championship and three European championship titles. The country will host along with Norway this year’s Women’s Handball European Championship where they are in the favorites to win the tournament. Several players of the squad play in Danish teams which makes their national championship one of the strongest in Europe. Viborg are the most successful team in the country with 14 titles ahead of FIF Kobenhavn. Team Esbjerg won their second title last season and are currently leading the standings as well.
Danish women’s handball championship odds favor Odense for title
Odense were last year’s runner up after standing six points behind Team Esbjerg when the league ended abruptly in April. Now they will have another chance to win the title for the first time in the club’s history. Surely their top players like Dutch world class Nycke Groot and her compatriot Lois Abbingh can help achieve it. The team started this season strongly with 8 wins and only one defeat. However that loss was against Esbjerg at home. Still online sportsbooks in Denmark favor them to win the title with the odds of 2.50. Odense also play in the Champions League where they stand in 4th place in their group.
Actually performing better there than their big rival, Team Esbjerg who are only in 6th place in the other group. Of course, a lot can still change in the tournament, where several games had to be postponed for a later date. At home Team Esbjerg are doing much more confidently after winning 8 out of 9 games. In spite of missing their key player, Estavana Polman who got injured during the summer. But the team is still full with great players, like goalkeeper Rikke Poulsen who also plays in the Danish national team. Or Austrian Sonja Frey and Norwegian Marit Malm Frafjord who is the captain of the team. Their odds are 3.40 to win the title for the third time in a row.
The most successful team in Denmark is also in the favorites
Viborg have the odds of 4.00 in the Danish women’s handball championship odds to win the league for the 15th time. The last time they were the champions was a few years ago, in 2014. In the previous season they finished in third place, which means they can compete in the EHF European League (previously called EHF Cup) now. The team will play in the third qualifying round against Romanian side Dunarea Braila this weekend.
At home Viborg stands in second place just one point behind the leaders with 8 wins and one loss. The team also has a few injured players but can rely on their experienced players beside young talents. Like Kristina Jorgensen who was voted as the best defending young player in the previous season. Online gambling sites in Denmark also mention Herning-Ikast as a potential winner of the league with the odds of 8.00. Even though they haven’t started the season too well, after losing three games already. But the team has also won the championship four times before and belongs to the top teams in Denmark.
