Asian Handicap Betting

Asian Handicap is a form of betting, which has become very popular in Asia (thus the name Asian Handicap). You may also have heard about Asian Handicap from the name "Hang Cheng".

"Handicap" means that a team has received a virtual head start, effectively leading the game with 1/2 goal, 1/4 goal, 3/4 goal, 1 goal, 1 1/4 goal, etc.

W
hen you bet with Asian Handicap, the possibility for a draw in a game is eliminated. Only home or away wins exist. If the game ends in a draw, you will get your stake back. There is perhaps some confusing terminology, for instance half-handicap (1/2-goal), and quarter handicap (1/4-goal). We will explain this thoroughly in this article.

Asian Handicap,  better for you?

Asian Handicap is definitively something for you! We are all familiar with fixed odds betting. It has been, and still is the "normal" way of betting.

But with Asian Handicap, there is a much better chance of profit, due to the fact that you get your stakes back (or at least a part of it, depending on the handicap), when a draw occurs. In fixed odds betting, you would lose your money if you bet on something other than the actual result. You can bet on teams which you really don't believe will win the match, but due to the handicap, your team may still provide you with a profit!

Asian Handicap betting also provides much more excitement, as one single goal can take you from heaven to hell.

G
enerally, you increase your mathematical chances of winning on a single bet from 33.3% (fixed odds betting), to 50% (using Asian Handicap, although depending on the handicap).

What's required?

The worst thing about Asian Handicap, in our opinion, is the rather complex way of figuring out the return. Of course you will get used to it after a while, but nevertheless it's a "must" to check with the tables showing the possible returns. (See Result calculation table below).

Y
ou will also need an account with companies offering Asian Handicap. Not all bookmakers offer Asian Handicap.

Result calculation table

T
he table shows your winnings for given results at a given handicap. As you can see, you will get half your stake back, or lose only half your stake when there's a 1/4, 3/4, 1 1/4 etc handicap. If a straight handicap (0:0, 0:1, or 1:0) results in a game ending with a draw, then you will get your stake back, because it is a "no bet" situation.

On half-handicaps, there is never a "no bet" situation. One of the teams must win, whatever the final result is.

Same as 0-0. All draws return your stakes with a 0:0 handicap

Example 0:1/4 handicap

When a team has got a 1/4 goal start, you will either lose 50 % or win 50% if the game ends in a draw. A 1/4 handicap is actually 2 handicaps, one of 0:0, and one of 0: 1/2. Thus, if 2 identical bets are placed on 0:0 and 0:1/2, then we have a 1/4 handicap bet.

A "no bet" situation is impossibl

+50%

Arsenal won by 1/4 goal. You win 50% of stake x odds

The same goes for the 1 ¼-handicap, the 2 ¼-handicap, and so on.  The difference being that the 50% rule apply when one of the teams have won 1-0, thus the game is a draw.

Example 0:1/2 handicap

When a team has got a 1/2 goal start, you will either lose 100% or win 100%. A draw (and thereby a "no bet" situation) is impossible.

Example 0:3/4 handicap

If you have bet on a team with a 3/4 goal start, you will lose 50% if your team loses by 1 goal. For all other results you will either win 100% or lose 100% depending on which team you backed with your bet. A 3/4 handicap is actually 2 bets, one on 1/2 goal handicap, and one on 1 goal handicap. Thus, if 2 identical bets are placed on the 1/2 goal, and the 1-goal handicap, then we have a 3/4-handicap situation

A "no bet" situation is impossible.
