Let’s see an example of a bet, Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid:

With Asian handicap probability:

Home odds: 1.9

Away odds: 1.9

If the player bets € 10 on Barcelona with a 0.75 bet scheme:

If Barcelona wins the game then the payout is € 10 x 1.90 = € 19.00

If Atletico Madrid wins with a goal difference (0 – 1, 1 – 2. 2 – 3) half is returned to me, the other half is lost.

If Atletico wins the game with two goals difference (0 – 2, 1 – 3, etc.), the bet is lost and the win is 0.

If you focus on Atletico Madrid:

If the team wins with a two-goal difference then the bet is won. The payout is € 10 x 1.90 = € 19.00

If Atletico wins with a single goal difference, the first half of the amount wagered is returned to me while the other half is multiplied by the amount of the win. So, € 5 x 1.90 = € 9.50. The total payout is € 14.50.

With Asian handicap probability:

Home odds: 1.9

Away odds: 1.5

You bet € 10 on the PSG. The team must win in order for you to win the bet (€ 10 x 2.00 = € 20). Ditto for Marseille.

But if a tie occurs, you have to be very careful:

If you bet on the PSG and a tie occurs, you get only half the winnings and the other half is lost.

If you bet on Marseille and the two teams draw, you get back half the initial odds. The second half is obtained with the share of the away team, therefore, € 5 x 1.90 = € 9.50. The sum obtained is € 14.50 with a profit of € 4.50.

If we take, for example, two teams, Juventus and Roma:

With Asian handicap probability:

Home odds: 1.9

Away odds: 1.5

You can do it in two ways:

If you bet € 10 on Juventus, you win the bet only if Juventus wins the match. Winnings are calculated in the classic way: € 10 x 1.90 = € 19

If you bet € 10 on Roma, you win the bet only if Roma win the game. The payout is calculated as in the previous example.

In the event of a tie, the sum wagered is returned to the player.

]]>First of all, in this type of bet, the result is not presented. Forget the classic 1X2 scheme. The probability of winning, in the Asian handicap, is greater because you can only bet on the “at home” or “away from home” option.

Bets in the Asian handicap system provide for the allocation of an “advantage” to the disadvantaged team according to the predictions. Depending on how the match ends, it is necessary to count the goals difference that the leading team would have scored on the one at a disadvantage or vice versa.

There are various combinations in the Asian handicap system.

]]>Let’s take as example a match between Sevilla and Betis.

The most powerful team, in principle, is Sevilla; so you can find some odds for corners with a handicap of this style: Sevilla -5.5 / +5.5 Betis

This means that you will have to subtract 6 corner kicks from Sevilla in the match, or add six to Betis. Based on that:

If you bet on Sevilla, you will win as long as, after subtracting six corners from Sevilla or adding 6 to Betis, Sevilla has forced a larger number of corners in the end.

If you bet on Betis, you will win if – after subtracting six corner kicks from Sevilla or adding 6 to Betis – the latter ends the game with a higher total number.

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:

Asian Handicap 0 – You win if the chosen team wins the game. If you draw, you get the refund of the bet. You lose if the chosen team loses.

Asian Handicap +0.25 – You win if the chosen team wins the game. If it draws, the bet is divided into two: one half is considered as a win, the other as a draw and is refunded.

Asian Handicap +0.50 – You win if the chosen team draws or wins the game.

Asian Handicap +0.75 – You win if the chosen team draws or wins the game. If you lose a goal difference, you only lose 50% of the bet.

Asian Handicap +1 – You win if the chosen team draws or wins the game. If you lose a goal difference, the bet is refunded.

Asian Handicap +1.25 – You win if the chosen team draws or wins the game. If you lose a goal difference, the bet is divided into two: one half is considered as a win, the other as a tie and is refunded.

Asian Handicap +1.5 – You win if the chosen team wins, draws or loses with a goal difference.

Asian Handicap +1.75 – You win if the chosen team wins, draws or loses with a goal difference. If you lose with two goals difference, 50% of the bet is refunded.

Asian Handicap +2 – You win if the chosen team wins, draws or loses with a goal difference. If you lose with two goals difference, the bet is completely refunded.

Asian Handicap +2.25 – You win if the chosen team wins, draws or loses with a goal difference. If he loses with two goals of difference, the bet is divided into two: one half is considered as a win, the other as a tie and is refunded.

Asian Handicap +2.5 – You win if the chosen team wins, draws or loses with one or two goals difference.

Asian Handicap -0.25 – You win if the chosen team wins with one or more goal difference. If you tie, you only lose 50% of the bet.

Asian Handicap -0.5 – You win if the chosen team wins the game.

Compared to the classic over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals, the Asian handicap on goals increases our chances of losing a bet. I’m not saying it increases our chances of winning, attention! The idea is that certain bets can return our stake, therefore we do not lose the respective bet / ticket OR we do not lose the whole stake.

Not to mention each type of bet below, I want to point out that it does NOT matter which team scores goals.

Asian handicap over 0.5 goals

You win if at least 1 goal has been scored in the match. It’s the same with betting over 0.5 goals (over 0.5 goals).

Asian handicap under 0.5 goals

You win if no goal was scored in the match (final score 0 – 0). It’s the same with the bet under 0.5 goals (under 0.5 goals)

Asian handicap over 0.75 goals

You win if at least 2 goals have been scored in the match. If 1 goal has been fixed, half of the stake is a winner (multiplies by the odds) and half is returned.

Asian handicap under 0.75 goals

You win if no goal was scored in the match (final score 0 – 0). If 1 goal is fixed, half of the stake is lost, and half is returned.

Asian handicap over 1 goal

You win if at least 2 goals have been scored in the match. If 1 goal has been fixed, the stake is returned (you receive 1 odds).

Handicap Asian under 1 goal

You win if no goal was scored in the match (final score 0 – 0). If 1 goal has been fixed, the stake is returned (you receive 1 odds).

Asian handicap over 1.25 goals

You win if at least 2 goals have been scored in the match. If 1 goal is fixed, half of the stake is lost, and half is returned.

Asian handicap under 1.25 goals

You win if no goal was scored in the match (final score 0 – 0). If 1 goal has been fixed, half of the stake is a winner (multiplies by the odds) and half is returned.

There is no point in continuing with the examples because the Asian disability recurs; only the number of goals changes. Basically from this moment we will have the same thing as in AH above and below 0.5, only that the Asian handicap will be 1.5, 1.75, 2, 2.25, etc. The principle is the same as in the explanations above, only that the number of goals changes.

Asian handicap on goals LIVE

The respected bookmakers also offer the possibility to bet LIVE.

The most common bet is Asian Handicap over 1. If the score is 0 – 0 through the 60th minute, the betting agencies offer us odds of approximately 1.90 – 2.00 for Asian Handicap over 1. If 1 goal is fixed , the stake is returned, and if at least 2 goals are scored, the bet is a winner.

The same principle can be applied to the Asian Handicap over 2, if the score is 1 – 0 or 0 – 1.

Same as over 3, over 4 and so on.

A very useful tip!

If you want to bet over 2.5 goals, for example, I recommend you check the Asian Handicap odds over 2.5 goals. It’s the same bet, but the odds differ most of the time.

The same applies to bets under 2.5 goals, over 1.5 goals, under 1.5 goals, etc. With this simple “trick” you can increase your odds of the significant betting slip.

]]>Asian handicap on the final result

Handicap 0

You win if the team you bet wins the match. In case of equality, the stake is returned. Basically this bet is also one with the draw DNB (Draw No Bet).

if the match ends evenly, the stake is returned (odds 1)

if Barcelona loses, the bet is lost

Handicap +0.25

You win if the team you bet wins the match. In case of equality, the bet is divided in two: one half of the stake is a winner, the other half being returned.

Example: you bet on the match Barcelona – Valencia, bet Barcelona HA +0.25

if Barcelona wins, the bet is the winner

if the match ends evenly, half of the stake is winning, half is returned. If you bet 100 EUR, 50 EUR is multiplied by the odds and this is your win + 50 EUR back (total win = 50 EUR x odds + 50 EUR)

if Barcelona loses, the bet is lost

if Barcelona loses, the bet is lost

Handicap +0.75

if Barcelona wins, the bet is the winner

if the match ends evenly, the bet is the winner

if Barcelona loses 1 goal difference, you lose half the stake. If you bet 100 EUR, 50 EUR you lost, 50 EUR are returned

if Barcelona loses 2 or more goals difference, the bet is lost

Handicap -0.75

You win if the team you bet wins the match at least 2 goals difference. If you win at a fixed 1 goal difference, one half of the stake is a winner, the other half being returned.

Example: you bet on the match Barcelona – Valencia, bet Barcelona HA -0.75

if Barcelona wins at a difference of at least 2 goals, the bet is the winner

if Barcelona wins at a 1 goal difference, one half of the stake is a winner, the other half is returned. If you bet 100 EUR, 50 Ron multiplies by odds and this is your win + 50 EUR return (total win = 50 EUR x odds + 50 EUR)

if the match ends evenly, the bet is lost

if Barcelona loses, the bet is lost

Handicap +1

You win if the team you bet on wins the match or in the event of a draw. If he loses 1 goal difference, the stake is returned.

if the match ends evenly, the bet is the winner

if Barcelona loses 1 goal difference, the stake is returned

if Barcelona wins at least 2 goals difference, the bet is the winner

if Barcelona wins 1 goal difference, the stake is returned

if the match ends evenly, the bet is lost

if Barcelona loses, the bet is lost

These are just a few examples, but the list can continue. But this is the basis of the Asian handicap on the end result.
