Asian Handicap

Asian Handicaps offer much better value than regular handicap bets. 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.

In the event that a whole number is used for the handicap, the handicap adjusted final score could result in a draw. This situation is not a draw, but a void(stake refund). With a void, all bettors have their original wagers returned as there is no winner.

Many matches are handicapped in ½ and ¼ intervals; both of which eliminate the possibility of a void since no one can score a half-goal. Quarter (¼) handicaps split the bet between the two closest ½ intervals. 

The stake is automatically divided equally and placed as 2 separate bets. This means that with a handicap point of +0.25(0.0,+0.5) or 0 and ½, half of your stake is on the 0 point handicap and the other half is on the +0.5 handicap.

Exapmpe:

Match: Everton vs. Newcastle United

Pick: Newcastle +1.25 (+1.0,+1.5)

Explained: This handicap states that half of your bet goes on Newcastle to win, draw, or lose by less than 1 goal; and half on Newcastle to win, draw, or lose by less than 1.5 goals.

If the final score is Everton 1-0 Newcastle, half your bet would be refunded due to draw (Everton 1 - +1 Newcastle, i.e: Newcastle lost by exactly one goal). The second half would win (Everton 1 - +1.5 Newcastle, i.e: Newcastle lost by less than 1.5 goals).
