Asian Handicap Explained

Asian Handicap is a very popular betting option.

But first let us explain what the simple handicap is and then we will explain the asian handicap.

Asian Handicap Explained

The handicap simply is there to give the less favorite team an edge.Let’s take this simple soccer exemple and say that Chelsea will host Barnet.Chelsea play at home and they are strong favorites and the odds look like this:1.10 for home win, 6.20 for a draw, and 14.00 for away win.But let’s see how they look with the handicap.For this match let’s say that the handicap is 3 goal, which means that Barnet will start with a 3 goal advantage.You may find writing like these: Barnet(+3) or Chelsea(-3).The odds would look more like there with the handicap : 2.40 for home win, 3.20 for draw and 2.60 for away win.Let’s say Chlesea wins the match 3-0, which would mean that the match ended a draw if we took the handicap.Only if Chelsea won at a difference of 4 or more goals, there would have been a home win acording to the hancicap odds.

That how things stay with the normal handicap.Now here comes the asian handicap which is much more popular due to the fact that the possibility of the a draw is gone.There are only two ways to go which increases the chances of winning for the punter.

Let’s take the Chelsea vs. Barnet exemple, again with a handicap of 3 goals but this time it’s an asian handicap.If Chelsea won 3-0, it would have been a draw and all stakes would have been returned.Here are two tables that will help you understand asian handicap better, and show you when and how your full or partial stake will be returned and where only half you winning will be credited.
