Bets with Asian Handicap
May 16, 2019 | In: Asian Handicap
Asian handicap bets are a new way to bet. In particular, there is a tendency to avoid the imbalance of skills between two teams by assigning one of the two a certain advantage, which may consist of a goal advantage if it comes to football matches, games or sets if it involves tennis matches, etc. , in order to bring the meeting to equity.
The peculiarity is that in Asian handicap bets there will always be only 2 bookmakers involved.
Some examples considering the team penalized with handicap.
With a handicap of 0, the odds are refunded in the event of a tie
With a handicap of -0.5 you win only if the team wins.
With a handicap of -1, you win only if the team wins with 2 or more goals. If he wins with only 1 goal difference, the bet is refunded.
With a handicap of -2, you win only if the team wins with 3 or more goals. If he wins with only 2 goal difference, the bet is refunded.
Then there are special handicaps called “split ball handicaps” when you want to give small advantages, for example an intermediate advantage between 0 and 0.5. In this case we read written: handicap 0, 0.5 or 0 & 0.5. In essence it is like making 2 bets, one with a 0 handicap and the other with a 0.5 handicap, but in reality only one is made. In this case, if the team with a handicap (0 & 0.5) wins, the stake is won for the odds, if you draw you win half of the bet multiplied by the odds, while the other half of the bet is refunded, if you lose you lose the full amount wagered.
