Asian Handicaps

Asian Handicap markets are 2-way markets where the Draw outcome is eliminated. Teams are given a certain amount of goals advantage or disadvantage which can be in 0.25 increments.

EXAMPLE #1

Arsenal -0.5 @ odds 1.9, Liverpool +0.5 @ odds 1.9

Bet = €10 on Liverpool +0.5 @ odds 1.9

If Arsenal win then the bet is lost.

If match is a Draw or Liverpool win then bet is won. €10 x 1.9 = €19 returns

EXAMPLE #2

Chelsea -0.75 @ odds 1.9, West Ham +0.75 @ odds 1.9

If you bet on Chelsea -0.75 then HALF your stake goes on Chelsea -1 and HALF your stake goes on Chelsea -0.5.

€10 on Chelsea -0.75 @ odds 1.9 is split into two parts:

  • €5 on Chelsea -1
  • €5 on Chelsea -0.5

If Chelsea win by 2 goals or more then BOTH parts of the bet win, so €10 x 1.9 = €19 returns

If Chelsea win by 1 goal then the €5 on Chelsea -0.5 WINS and €5 on Chelsea -1 is refunded. Returns = €5 x 1.9 (+ €5 refunded) = €14.50. This payout is known as a WIN HALF.

If match is a Draw or West Ham win then BOTH parts of the bet lose.

EXAMPLE #3

Bayern -1.75 @ odds 1.9, Mainz +1.75 @ odds 1.9

If you bet on Mainz +1.75 then HALF your stake goes on Mainz +2 and HALF your stake goes on Mainz +1.5.

€10 on Mainz +1.75 @ odds 1.9 is split into two parts:

  • €5 on Mainz +2
  • €5 on Mainz +1.5

If Bayern win by 3 goals or more then both parts of the bet lose.

If Bayern win by 2 goals then €5 on Mainz +1.5 LOSES and €5 on Mainz +2 is refunded. Returns = €5. This payout is known as a LOSE HALF.

If Bayern win by 1 goal, match is Drawn, or Mainz win then BOTH bets are won. Returns = €10 x 1.9 = €19.

EXAMPLE #4

Asian Handicap markets can also be offered for just the 1st Half of a match.

1st Half Asian Handicap

Barcelona -0.75 @ odds 1.9, Alaves +0.75 @ odds 1.9

If you bet on Barcelona -0.75 then HALF your stake goes on Barcelona -1 and HALF your stake goes on Barcelona -0.5.

€10 on Barcelona -0.75 @ odds 1.9 is split into two parts:

  • €5 on Barcelona -1
  • €5 on Barcelona -0.5

If Barcelona win the 1st Half by 2 goals or more then both parts of the bet are WON. Returns = €10 x 1.9 = €19.

If Barcelona win the 1st Half by 1 goal then €5 on Barcelona -0.5 WINS and €5 on Barcelona -1 is refunded. Returns = €5 x 1.9 (+ €5 refunded) = €14.50. This payout is known as a WIN HALF.

If the 1st Half is a Draw or a Alaves win then both parts of the bet are LOST.
