Victoria may be the favorite, but Southern Redbacks (EVEN) is where many bettors will be laying their money. The match begins at 6 p.m. EST.
Herre Handbold Ligaen
In Round 11 of the Danish men’s handball league, the middle of the pack Sonderjyske will take on a bottom-dwelling team in Fredericia.
Despite being within a few games of last place, Fredericia (EVEN) is only a slight underdog. This is due to the fact that they are 13-1-1 in their last 15 matches at home. For Sonderjyske, they 3-4-1 (4 losses) on the road in their last eight games, but none of those losses have come within their last four road contests.

Mogi isn’t known for blowing out teams. In their last three wins, they have won by a combined 10 points, indicating the play might actually be better suited on Pato tonight. Tip-off occurs at 6 p.m. EST and with an over-under of 153 points, bettors should parlay their spread wager with the under.
