Handball – First Half Asian Handicap Under Goals betting and trading markets are not considered to be a very popular option for punters and traders. As a sport, handball is very popular in Europe. When it comes to betting or trading, it’s not very well known, nor popular. Saying so, this fact is the best advantage you can have in your campaign against the bookies. The Asian Handicap betting lines offered by the bookmakers are often not very well researched and leave great opportunities for professional punters and traders. I have personally experienced Bookmakers aggressively slashing their odds, massively dropping the AH lines when some well-prepared professionals were recommending their Handball AH lines bets to their followers. So if handball is your passion and you wish to learn more about betting, you will have some wonderful prospects and these Handball stats will make your statistical research a lot easier.
If you ask punters and traders about under/over lines betting, most of them will tell that they simply can’t back the under goals lines. Why? Because you have to wait until the full time for the outcome to be won and if they watch the game live, the late goals will usually mean bets being lost. They would rather back the over goals lines and enjoy some winners before the match finishes and experience many great matches with last minute winners for their bets.
At the same time, the majority of punters and traders who rely on their emotions, are not successful in the long-term. If you are an aspiring bettor or trader, you simply can’t afford to overlook the under goals lines markets. These handball First Half AH Under Goals stats are your starting point.
The handball under/over Asian Handicap goals lines are not the same every time and will differ depending on fixtures, competitions, countries etc. That fact makes it extra difficult when it comes to calculating stats. However, we believe that we have a good statistical model for the Handball First Half AH Under Goals markets.
As mentioned previously, we can observe quite good a big range of lines available for the Under/Over First Half Goals markets. Furthermore, the fact that overs are favoured by the punters can also be visible as the under goals odds are usually slightly higher.
Let’s have a look at the TOP 2 stats from our table (as they are both on the top with the 62% average stats). How do we calculate the stats when the under/over lines are likely to be different sometimes? Please refer to the image below:
For every single team’s last 20 matches (in this case, it’s Midtjylland Women) we check for the Evens odds under/over line and record the under and over results. We can see that the AH under/over lines for Midtjylland’s matches has been pretty consistent (23.5 or 24.5 goals). However, this is not the case very often. You can also spot the 4 NULL entries which mean that the goals lines and odds were missing at that time (e.g. bookies have not priced it up for some reason or left it very late). In that case, we simply use the current line (23.5 goals) for our stats calculations.
The rest is very straightforward and the stats from the tables for Ringkobing W vs Midtjylland W mean the following:
HL20 – 40% means that 40% of Ringkobing W’s last 20 matches finished in Under AH Goals Line (8/20 matches)
HL10H – 60% means that 60% of Ringkobing W’s last 10 home matches finished in Under AH Goals Line (6/10 matches)
HL6 – 16% means that 16.66% of Ringkobing W’s last 1 match finished in Under AH Goals Line (1/6 matches)

AL6 – 83% means that 83.33% of Midtjylland W’s last 6 matches finished in Under AH Goals Line (5/6 matches)

In both cases, the odds for under goals halftime lines have drifted before the kick-off. This time, the stats pointed out these two winners, but that will not always be the case.

Professional betting and trading consist of both statistical and qualitative analyses. The stats bits has been done for you and it leaves you the second part of the puzzle.
