Asian handicap

October 7, 2019 | In: Asian Handicap

The bet called Asian handicap, not to be confused with the classic handicap, is a particular bet, offered only by some bookmakers, which offers the bettor greater probability of winning and, in certain situations, also the possibility of being able to be reimbursed.

The term Asian handicap was coined by journalist Joe Saumarez Smith in 1998, following the request by the Indonesian bookmaker Joe Phan, to provide a translation of the “hang cheng betting” betting method widely used by Asian bookmakers.

This particular betting method makes it possible to reduce the number of possible results of a traditional 1X2 bet from three to two, because it omits a draw. This simplification brings with it two possibilities of sortie and therefore reduces the risk of the bet, given that each of them has a 50% chance of success.

The Asian handicap is applied by assigning a gap, which usually ranges from a quarter of a goal to a few goals, against the favorite or in favor of the underdog: if the gap indicated by the sign “-” or “+” (for example if the Asian handicap is -1 and the favorite team wins by just one goal, or +1 and the disadvantaged team loses only one network) the bet is not lost but reimbursed.

There are also Asian handicaps that combine partial winnings and partial reimbursements or losses and reimbursements, with automatic division of the bet into two parts: one reimbursed and one loser or winner, to which the fee is applied (eg if you bet 20 euros on a Asian handicap at 2 and the bet is half reimbursed and half winning you receive 30 euros: reimbursement of 10 euros and application of quota 2 on another 10 euros, for a total of 10 + 20 euros).

Here are all the possible combinations of Asian handicaps and their explanations on their operation:
