ASIAN HANDICAPS - A BETTING SYSTEM TO EVEN UP THE GAME!

 
Asian Handicap is a form of betting where the perceived weaker team (or underdog) is given a number of goals head start. Conversely, the team perceived to be superior (the favourite) is penalised or ‘handicapped’ an equal number of goals in an attempt to make the two teams equal for betting purposes.  
 
The  favourite has to overcome the handicap, and will have it taken away from its final score. The handicap for the favourite is preceded by a minus (-). The underdog is given a 'head-start', and will have it added to its final score. The handicap for the underdog is preceded by a plus (+).
 
The wider the gap between the two teams, the greater the number of goals head start is given to the weaker team. If the two teams’ on-field ability is considered to be approximately equal, no handicap is given to either team.
 
 
TWO TYPES OF ASIAN HANDICAPS - SINGLE HANDICAPS & DOUBLE HANDICAPS
 
Single Asian Handicap Bets
 
EXAMPLE:  BRAZIL -1.0 v ENGLAND +1.0
 
In this example, England has been given a 1 goal head start over Brazil. This means that all bets on England will win, provided England either win or draw the match. 
 
If Brazil wins the match by at least two goals, then all Brazil bets will win and all bets placed on England will be losers. 
 
If Brazil wins by exactly one goal with the -1.0 handicap the scores are considered level and all stakes will be returned.
 
The table below lists the most commonly used Handicaps and the outcome of each:
You can see that there are many ways to represent an Asian Handicap bet & it can be a bit confusing until you realise they are all showing the same bet.
 
In this example, a £100 bet on Brazil is actually two separate bets, £50 on Brazil at -1.0 and £50 on Brazil at -1.5. The odds for both bets are 1.90.

Double Asian Handicap Bets
 
ALSO KNOWN AS SPLIT OR QUARTER BALL HANDICAPS
 
Double handicaps are used to split a wager into two equal and separate bets – each with the same odds to win, but at a different single handicap. This can result in the following scenarios:
Both bets win, therefore the full win amount is returned.
One bets wins and one bet draws (stake returned). 
This is commonly referred to as ‘Half Win’.
One bet draws (stake returned) and one bet loses. 
This is commonly referred to as ‘Half Loss’.
Both bets lose, therefore the full stake amount is lost.

In this example, a £100 bet on Brazil is actually two separate bets, £50 on Brazil at -1.0 and £50 on Brazil at -1.5. The odds for both bets are 1.90.
 
If Brazil wins the match by two goals or more, both bets are winners.
 
If Brazil wins by one goal, the bet placed at a -1.0 goal handicap is considered a draw and the stake refunded and the bet placed at a -1.5 goal handicap results in a loss. The end result is a loss of £50, which equates to ½ of the bettors stake (i.e. ‘Half Loss’).
 
If England draw or win the game, both bets are lost.
