Asian Handicap: Today we will try to bet on the Asian Handicap Market and the best ways to deal with it, but first of all a critical question, what is the Asian Handicap Market? Put simply, the Asian handicap market is no more than predicting the goals or disadvantage of the team in which we will place our bet, the values will be positive if our bet is the least favorite element, or negative if we place our bet for the favorite element of the event.
Its name is due to be a very popular form of bet in Asia and very popular in online gambling nowadays. Your base works on the progress made by a team, and this betting format nullifies the tie factor, reducing the number of bets to 2 possible results, team win or another, if the tie is the final result, all the bets are returned, which is why online betting this format is increasingly popular, since in traditional bets the tie can mean loss of funds.
Asian Handicap Bet
The handicap is nothing more, nothing less than an advance that is given to one of the teams, this advance can be half a goal or a goal. But an example will help to better understand the type of bet that is the Asian handicap.
Consider a game between Barcelona and Valencia, in the typical betting market we have three possible results, Barcelona’s victory, Valencia’s victory and draw.
In the Asian handicap market there is no draw factor, leaving two choices, where Barcelona would be the favorite, having a handicap of a goal and a half negative. If you bet in Barcelona, to win the bet in an Asian market with a goal and a half in the favorite, Barcelona must win the game by a difference of 2 or more goals if Barcelona lose, draw or only win by a goal, bet is lost.
In some markets of the Asian handicap there are two advances given to the teams, well known in some online bookmakers, where for example, Barcelona may have a probability of -0 and -0.5 and Real Madrid +0 and +0.5. If you bet on Barcelona and Barcelona win by 1 goal or more, you win both bets, if the game is tied, you lose half of the bet, as the handicap of -0.5 loses and the -0 return, if Barcelona loses , both bets will be lost.
It is a market that requires a great study and knowledge of the teams, although there is no tie, the probability that would be attributed to the tie, happens to be subdivided into the odds of winning or losing, so online bets are very thoughtful to play in the market Asian.
Asian Goal Market
A situation that usually raises doubts is the market of the goals, also exists Asian market in the goals. Using the example above, if for a match between Barcelona and Valencia, we bet that there will be more than 2.5 goals in the game, if the game is 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 1-1, 2- 0 or 0-2 we lose the bet, this bet is only won if there are 3 or more goals in this game, however, there is also the reverse bet, we can bet that there will be less than 2.5 goals and then we win the bet if one of the six results mentioned above is the one verified at the end of the game.
Although it does not focus on the final result and more on the total of goals, and can add a higher degree of uncertainty, here too it is necessary to have a great knowledge of the teams, of the conditioners of the whole game, and some knowledge in statistical analysis for try to predict with some degree of certainty future events are an extra.
Asian Markets of Goals:
There are many variables in the goal market and here are some simple examples …
Over 0.5: There must be more than 1 goal to win the bet
Over 0.75 (0.5 / 1.0): There are 2 bets, ie 0.5 and over 1.0, if you score 1 goal you win half the bet and with 2 goals or more you win all
Over 1.0: With 1 goal the bet is void and with 2 goals or more wins the bet
Over 1.25 (1.0 / 1.5): With 1 goal you lose half of your bet and with 2 or more goals wins the bet in full
Over 1.50: You have to get more than 2 goals to win the bet
Over 1.75 (1.50 / 2.0): With 2 goals you win half the bet and with 3 or more goals you win everything
