In the previous article, we explained the functionality of the European Handicap, showing how it can be used to achieve greater advantages within a football match. Today we go further, as we will present the Asian Handicap, which is a little more complex, but has much more interesting resources.

Unlike European, where numbers are just integers, in Asian you will also find odds in this format: +0.5, -0.5, +1.5, -1.5, +2.5, -2.5, etc. Another important difference is that in the event of a tie, the bet is returned on the Asian Handicap.

So, let's follow the same game as the previous article, so you can see the difference. The match is valid for the Premier League, between Chelsea x Southampton:
 
Chelsea (-1): 1.60
Southampton (+1): 2.30
 
If Chelsea need to win by two goals at the European Championship (they are at a disadvantage of 1 goal), here it is also necessary to win by the same two goals to take the total prize, but there is an important detail, if they win by only 1 goal, it's as if the game had ended in a draw, in 1v1. When there are cases of tie, the bet is returned, that is, there is no profit or loss. It's more security that you get.
 
But there will be cases that will be "two odds" in a single option, we will explain:
 
Chelsea (-1, -1.5): 1.940
Southampton (+1, +1.5): 1.960
 
You may be wondering right now “What's this weird thing?”, but it's nothing weird and it's pretty easy to explain. Here the range of options increases, but pay attention:
 
In practice, it is not possible to have -1.5 goals in football, or any other broken number, as there is no “half” goal, correct? But in Asian betting, it works like this:
 
Look, the odd is (-1, -1.5)
 
Chelsea, in this case, will need to win by 2 goals difference, since greater than 2 is greater than 1.5. Here nothing has changed, as in the example above you also need to win by two goals difference. Now, if you win by just 1 goal difference, you will lose half the bet, as 1 goal is less than 1.5. On the other hand, you will have half of the bet returned, as this goal will equal the option “-1”, also contained in this bet. If you bet 100$, you will lose 50$ and have the other half returned.
 
Now let's look at Southampton, which has a quote (+1, +1.5). If the team loses by 2 goals difference, it's gone, you lose the total bet. But if the team is tough and ends up being defeated by just 1 goal difference, you take home part of the wagered profit, thanks to the “+1.5” option. You win a part, because the other is returned to your account without profit or loss, since losing by 1 goal, you are equal to the “+1” option. As we said at the beginning of the article, if there is a tie, there are no gains or losses. Finally, the most spectacular case would be if the team managed to pull a draw from Chelsea, since in this case the bet would be 100% won.
 
We've set an example in the results market, but bookmakers offer Asian Handicap for other betting styles. It is possible to use this same strategy in the corners, cards and goals markets, for example. It all depends on your assessment and see where it best fits in the game, or also where you will have greater knowledge and preferences. The idea and meaning is the same explained throughout the article, the only thing that change is the market.
 
This is another way for you to explore a football match, and with enough analysis, studies and methods, you can get good advantages.
