Asian Handicap Betting Guide NEW

The main benefit of this type of betting is that it offers punters better odds on short priced favourites or a more realistic chance of making a profit when backing an underdog, if they can cover the handicap line.

This is achieved by imposing a goal and/or partial goal handicap on the teams facing each other. Using this approach means there is always a winner and a loser because the draw has effectively been removed from the equation.

The table below explains different AH lines and how the final result of the game you are betting on determines if your bet is a win, partial win, push (stake refunded) or a loss.
