What is the Asian handicap
The Asian handicap is a type of bet Thailand in which no tie is possible. Despite the name, this rate is popular not only in Asia, but also in Europe. The Asian handicap is more typical for football matches. The peculiarity of the Asian handicap bet (or, as it is also called, the handicap) is that each event is calculated based on the victory or loss of the team.
Types of Asian handicap
Asian handicaps differ in type:
- Asian handicap 0 - zero bet means that the bettor wins if the selected team wins, if the game ends in a draw, the bet is returned to the player.
- Asian handicap 0.75 - the handicap is divided into two with a value ( 0.5 and 1), such a rate means that both sides win if the teams tied. If the team on which the bettor has bet loses, then the 0.5 part of the bet does not work, but the second part of the 1 will bring the bet back, and the team's loss of more than two goals leads to the impassability of both parts of the bets.
- Asian handicap 1. If the bettor chooses a handicap with a value of 1, then the bet wins if the team wins or there is a draw. If the player chooses a handicap with a value of -1, then the bet wins if the winning team has a point difference of two or more goals.
- Asian handicap 1.5. In the event that the bettor makes a bet 1.5, then the bet is considered won if the team scores more goals than the opponent, draws and even loses by one goal. With a bet of -1.5, the victory will be counted only if the team scores two more goals than the opponent. In all other cases, the bet loses.
Double Asian handicap
Such bets may have a double handicap. In these cases, the bettor can bet on different results. For example, a player can bet 0.5, 1 on the Brazilian team -0.5, -1 on the England team. Double handicap can be -0.25 it is written as (0, -0.5) or 0.25 (0, 0.5). If the bettor bets on (0, -0.5), then he wins if the team scores at least one goal more than the opponent. In the event that the game ends in a draw, the bettor loses half of his bet, the second half is returned to his account. When choosing an Asian handicap (0, 0.5), the victory is counted if the team wins.
If the bettor chooses a handicap (0.5, 1) with negative values, then the bet will win if the team wins with a difference of two or more goals. If the difference is one goal, then part of the bet will be returned, and the other will be played at the accepted odds. When choosing a handicap with the value ( 0.5, 1), the bet is considered won if the team wins or a draw is fixed.
At first glance, the Asian handicap seems quite complicated, but if you understand all the intricacies, it becomes clear that such a bet is quite profitable, and it increases the bettor's chances of winning.
