Betting Strategy: How to Read Asian Handicapping

In football (soccer), asian handicap betting is among the most popular form of betting for punters around the world, exclusive of the United States bettors who many prefer the traditional moneyline and totals (over/under).
 
The main advantage of asian handicapping (AH) 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. Though for the football investor and punters, we’ve seen them compliment the asian handicap betting strategy with 3 other advanced soccer betting tips.
 
However, one goal can change everything in your favor, or the opposite side.
 
An Asian Handicap betting (named so simply because of its Eastern origins) is a form of betting on football that has gained popularity over the years. The handicaps typically range from one quarter goal to several goals and can be described in terms of half or even quarter goals.
 
Most importantly, Asian Handicap betting reduces the possible number of outcomes from three (in traditional 1X2 wagering) to two by eliminating the draw outcome. This simplification delivers two betting options that each have a near 50% chance of success, somewhat a different probability viewpoint as those punters who prefer another popular soccer betting system called the Fibonacci strategy.
 
Asian Handicaps are both good and bad for bookmakers. On one hand, they help bookmakers minimize risk by facilitating trading with parity or balancing the amount of wagering on each side of the match. This enables bookmakers to take larger positions on major matches. On the other hand, Asian Handicap markets are typically low margin offerings that do not contribute as significantly to the gross win as other, higher vigorish betting options like 1X2.
 
The term “Asian Handicap” was coined by journalist Joe Saumarez Smith in November 1998. He was asked by an Indonesia bookmaker, Joe Phan, to provide a translation of the betting method that was termed ‘hang cheng betting’ by bookmakers in Asia.
 
Enough of the history lesson, let’s go through handicap to help you understand with the explanations of the rules below. There are lots of Asian handicap lines and you will read most of them through this post.
 
 
Asian handicap betting explained
 
Asian handicap 0:0 (Level ball – Draw no bet – DNB)
Here the game starts 0-0. No advance is given to any team. Draw option is eliminated and the rules are simple.
 
Example : Chelsea vs Liverpool AH – 0:0
 
Home Odds – 1.90 , Away Odds – 1.95
 
* You bet 100$ on Chelsea to win 0:0 AH at 1.90 odds. To win your coupon, you need Chelsea to win the game, simply to win. If Chelsea 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 Chelsea loses the game, you lose your bet too.
 
* It is the same with Liverpool 0:0 AH. You need Liverpool to win the game, and if a draw occurs, you get your money back. No Wager, no bet. If Liverpool 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 it by the example below.
 
Example : Monaco vs Lyon AH – 0:1/4
 
Home Odds – 2.00 , Away Odds – 1.90
 
* You bet 100$ on Monaco to win -1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Monaco to win the game. If Monaco 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 Lyon wins the game, you lose your all stake.
 
* You bet 100$ on Lyon to win +1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Lyon to win the game. If Lyon 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 : Porto vs Benfica AH – 0:1/2
 
Home Odds – 1.85 , Away Odds – 2.00
 
* You bet 100$ on Porto to win -1/2 AH (we use minus (-) if the team is favored by AH). To win your coupon, you need Porto to win. In any other cases, you lose your money. If Porto wins, you win 100$ X 1.85 = 185$. It means you make 185$ – 100$ = 85$ profit. If Benfica wins or the game ends tie, you lose your money.
 
* You bet 100$ on Benfica to win +1/2 AH (we use plus (+) if the team is advanced by AH). To win your coupon, you need Benfica 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.
 
Porto wins and Porto -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.
 
The asian handicap betting strategy is popular among punters, but if you’re already familiar with asian handicap and looking for other ways to profit on the soccer market, consider the soccer betting strategy as both teams to score market.
