Asian handicap in football

As it turned out, on Runet, most bettors do not know what an Asian handicap or an Asian handicap means in football, due to the fact that this type of bet is more common in Asian bookmakers. In this article, we will fix the situation and tell you in detail about this kind of handicap. 

Asian handicap or handicap - the same thing?

The usual handicap in betting is the provision of an advantage, which is expressed in the number of balls, points, seconds. This number can be whole (soft handicap) or fractional (hard handicap). The handicap can be either negative or positive. Accordingly, there are two types of handicap - on the favorite and the outsider.

The Asian handicap is a subset of the handicap. This is a double bet on two adjacent handicaps.

Why is the Asian handicap a good bet?

It is profitable to bet on Asian handicap because there are three outcomes in regular bets, and in handicaps the number of probable outcomes is equal to two, so the chances that the bet will play are higher. Also, as a rule, the margin at such rates is lower, as is the variance.

Asian handicap or Asian handicap, what is it in betting?

The meaning of Asian Handicap bets is the same as for handicap bets. The only difference is that the Asian Handicap bet is, as it were, divided into two equal parts. For example, when you see in the line (-1.75) with odds of 1.96,

So by placing $ 100 on this bet, you are betting $ 50 on the handicap (-1.5) with the odds of 1.96 and $ 50 on the handicap (-2) with the odds of 1.96. Accordingly, if you bet $ 100 on the handicap (+1.75),

you bet $ 50 on the handicap (+1.5) with the odds of 1.96 and $ 50 on the handicap (+2) with the same odds.

Asian handicap calculation: how is the Asian handicap calculated?

Let's take a look at the different scores in a match to understand how payouts will be made for a given account. If PSG wins by 3 or more goals,  then both conditional bets of $ 50 on PSG will play, which means that those players who put $ 100 on the handicap (-1.75) for the odds of 1.96 will receive $ 196 (net profit of $ 96 and $ 100 return on your investment). Anyone who put a handicap of +1.75 on Saint-Etienne will lose both conditional bets. 

If PSG cannot win the match, or wins it only by 1 goal , then everything will be exactly the opposite, now those players who put a handicap (+1.75) on Saint-Etienne for 1.96 will receive $ 196, and players who bet on a handicap (- 1.75), lose all of their investment ($ 100).

If the match ends Lunch PSG exactly 2 goals  then the conditional rate of $ 50 per head start PSG (-1.5) will play, but bet on handicap (-2) is calculated as the return of $ 50, as a result, players who have put ( -1.75) for 1.96 they will receive 50 * 1.96 = 98 $ at the first conditional bet with a handicap (-1.5) and 50 $ return on the second with a handicap (-2). This means that their payment will be 98 + 50 = $ 148, that is, $ 48 of net profit. 

As for those players who bet (+1.75) on Saint-Etienne, their first conditional bet of $ 50 on handicap (+2) will be calculated as a return, and the second conditional bet (+1.5) will be calculated as a loss. As a result, their payment will be $ 50, i.e. their profit will be negative at this rate -50 $.
