Asian Handicap

The asian handicaps (AH) are one of the most interesting form of betting on football because they eliminate the so-called ‘problem of draws’, and every action is calculated in a two-way choice manner. Unexperienced bettors often avoid that type of bookmaking due to their complexity. We assure you though, that there is nothing to be afraid of and correct usage of asian handicaps can considerably simplify the process of succesful bet-making.

Asian handicap

What are the asian handicaps?

Asian handicaps, just like the name suggests, trace their origins to Asia and at the beginning it was that region where they were primarily used. However, their popularity continually grew and nowadays they are also offered by the European bookmakers and top bettors gladly use them. Why?

The main reason is that because of asian handicaps the bookmakers can enforce bigger margin and the odds are significantly higher. It is so because every action is calculated in a two-way choice manner, not like in the case of three way choice classic bet manner (There is no draw option anymore).

Asian handicaps also enable one to make a winning bet on an outsider, for example because of the AH (+2) option as well as finding the high odds (value) for the absolute front-runner (for example making a bet AH (-1.5) with 1.80 odds instead of the regular ‘1’ with 1.28 odds).

Types of asian handicaps

  • Asian handicap AH 0 - also called No Risk Bet (Draw No Bet). The bet is won when your team wins the match. The draw stands for void of the entire stake. The loss of the team means that the bet is lost.
  • Asian handicap AH (-1) - in this type of handicap, the team that we place our bet on have to win by at least two goal difference. The win by only one goal means the void of the entire stake and the draw as well as the loss of our team results in a lost bet.
  • Asian handicap AH (-1.5) - the so-called half asian handicap. For the bet to be calculated as victorious our team have to win by at least two goal difference. The win by only one goal, a draw or a lost match means a bet is lost.
  • Asian handicap AH (-1.25) - the so-called quarter asian handicap. Somewhat complicated but only at first. The bet and the odds are split into two sub-bets The half of the odds goes to the bet AH (-1), and the other half to AH (-1.5). Depending on the result of the match we win, lose or get the void of entire or half of the stake.
