What is Asian Handicap?


The main advantage of Asian Handicap is that the draw result is eliminated. In the standard bet, the possibilities of each outcome is 33%. In AH, the draw option is eliminated. Asian handicap betting offers the underdog of the game with an early lead before the kick off. You have two options. Betting on home or away. So, is this something for you?

However, one goal can change everything in your favor, or the opposite side. Let us make you understand with the explanations of the rules below.asian handicap There are lots of Asian handicap lines and you will read most of them through this page. Please ask your questions in the forum if you do not understand any points or rules. For the rest of the guide, we will use AH for abbreviation.

Here the game starts 0-0. No advance is given to any team. Draw option is eliminated and the rules are simple.

Example : Manchester United vs Real Madrid AH – 0:0

Home Odds – 1.90 , Away Odds – 1.95

* You bet 100$ on Manchester United to win 0:0 AH at 1.90 odds. To win your coupon, you need MU to win the game, simply to win. If MU wins, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100 = 90$. If a possible draw occurs, you get your stake (100$) back. No wager, no bet. If MU loses the game, you lose your bet too.

* It is the same with Real Madrid 0:0 AH. You need Real Madrid to win the game, and if a draw occurs, you get your money back. No Wager, no bet. If Real Madrid loses, you lose your bet too.

You may see some bookies offer something like DNB, Draw no bet, or Level ball. It is the same with 0:0 AH.

 

Asian handicap 0.25

Here the game starts 0-1/4. The underdog team is advanced with a quarter goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. It is more complicated from half AH. You win, win half, lose or lose half stake of your bet. Lets examine a typical Asian handicap .25 with the example below.

Example : Manchester City vs Paris St Germain AH – 0:1/4

Home Odds – 2.00 , Away Odds – 1.90

* You bet 100$ on Manchester City to win -1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Manchester City to win the game. If Manchester City wins, you win 100$ X 2.00 = 200$. It means you make 200$ – 100$ = 100$ profit. If a draw occurs, you lose half of your stake (50$) and the other half (50$) is back. If Paris St Germain wins the game, you lose your all stake.

* You bet 100$ on Paris St Germain to win +1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Lyon to win the game. If Paris St Germain wins the game, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. It means you make 190$ – 100$ = 90$ profit. If a draw occurs, you get half of your stake (50$) back and win the other half (50$) at 1.90. It means, you win 50$ (back) + 95$ (50$ X 1.90) = 145$. Your profit is 145$ – 100$ = 45$.

Asian handicap 0.5

Here the game starts 0-1/2. The underdog team is advanced with a half goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. In addition, there is no money back in any case. You will win or lose your money.

Example : Barcelona vs Juventus AH – 0:1/2

Home Odds – 1.85 , Away Odds – 2.00

* You bet 100$ on Barcelona to win -1/2 AH (we use minus (-) if the team is favored by AH). To win your coupon, you need Barcelona to win. In any other cases, you lose your money. If Barcelona wins, you win 100$ X 1.85 = 185$. It means you make 185$ – 100$ = 85$ profit. If Juventus wins or the game ends tie, you lose your money.

* You bet 100$ on Juventus to win +1/2 AH (we use plus (+) if the team is advanced by AH). To win your coupon, you need Juventus to win or tie the game at the end of 90 minute-time. If one of these occurs, you win 100$ X 2.00 = 200$. It means you make 200$ – 100$ = 100$ profit. If Porto wins the game, you lose your money.

Barcelona wins and Barcelona -1/2 AH is the same things in Asian handicap betting.

 

Asian handicap 0.75

Here the game starts 0-3/4. The underdog team is advanced with a quarter goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. It is different from 1/4 AH by a slight exception.

Example : Betis vs Real Madrid AH – 3/4:0

Home Odds – 1.90, Away Odds – 1.90

* You bet 100$ on Betis to win +3/4 AH. (Here the home team is underdog; as a result of it, Betis is advanced by the AH). To win your coupon, you need Betis to win or tie the game. If Betis wins or ties the game, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100$ = 90$. Consider that the game ends by Real Madrid win by 1 (0-1, 1-2, 2-3). Thus, you lose your half stake (50$) and the other half (50$) returns. If Real Madrid wins the game by 2 or more goals (0-2, 1-3, 0-3), you lose your all stake.

* You bet 100$ on Real Madrid to win -3/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Real Madrid to win by 2 or more goals (0-2, 0-3, 1-3). If Real Madrid wins the game by 2 or more goals, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100$ = 90$. If Real Madrid wins by 1 goal (0-1, 1-2, 2-3), you get your half stake (50$) and win the other half (50$ X 1.90). You win 50$ (back) + 95 (50$ X 1.90) = 145$. Your profit is 145$ – 100$ = 45$. If the game ends tied or Betis wins, you lose your all stake.

 

Asian handicap -1

Here the game starts 0-1. One goal advance is given to underdog team. Draw option is eliminated again.

Example : Juventus vs Bologna AH – 0:1

Home Odds – 1.80, Away Odds – 2.05

* You bet 100$ on Juventus to win -1 AH. To win your coupon, you need Juventus to win by 2 or more goals (2-0, 3-0, 3-1). If Juventus wins by 2 or more goals, you win 100$ X 1.80 = 180$. You profit is 180$ – 100$ = 80$. If Juventus wins by 1 goal (1-0, 2-1, 3-2..), you get your money back. No wager. If the game ties or Bologna wins, you lose all your stake.

* You bet 100$ on Bologna to win +1 AH. To win your coupon, you need Bologna to win, or a draw. If the game ends drawn or Bologna wins, you win 100$ X 2.05 = 205$. Your profit is 205$-100$ = 105$. If Bologna lose by 1 (1-0, 2-1, 3-2), you get your money back. No Wager. However, any Juventus win by 2 or more, make you lose your bet.

Personally, we prefer Asian handicap betting instead of standard betting due to more winning possibilities. The rules may look difficult with the first point of view, but in the end you will find it so easy. Best of luck!
