December 3, 2018 | In: Asian Handicap
Asian Handicap is a bet with two betting options where one of the results gets a fictitious advantage and the other one receives a fictitious handicap. The equality result is taken from the equation. There are several types of Asian handicaps:
-non-return handicap: In this case one option gets a fictitious advantage of 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 etc. Depending on the outcome, you either win the bet or lose it.
-handicap with full return of stake: In this case, one of the options gets a 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc. 3.0. Depending on the outcome, you can win the bet, you can lose it, but you can also benefit from returning the bet if the bet is set in the middle.
-handicaps with partial return: There are bets placed in the middle of a handicap without a stake and a handicap with full return of stakes. That’s why we’ll see fictitious advantages like 0.25, 0.75, 1.25, 1.75, 2.25, 2.75, etc. Depending on the result, there are several options: you can win the bet on the full stake, you can win the bet on half the stake and the other half stake is returned, you can lose the bet on half the stake and the other half stake is returned, or you can lose the bet on the full stake.
