Asian Handicaps

Far too often the Asian Handicap Betting Guides that I have seen are either lacking information, or are just too difficult to understand. The Asian Handicap is basically designed to take the draw out of the equation, so instead of win draw or loss, apart from a few occasions, it's a straight win or lose situation.

My attempt here will be to make it very simple to understand for all you Asian Handicap Betting Punters.

I do have a golden rule that I'd like you all to use to make it easier to understand Asian Handicaps and that is below.
 


Golden Rule No.1 - Add the handicap to the scoreline

What do I mean by that?

Well if you have taken Arsenal -1 and Arsenal draw 0-0, by using the golden rule, the scoreline changes to Arsenal -1 v 0, hence they've lost.

I'll move on to every handicap there is with an easy example to help you.
 


Man Utd +0 (1.90) v Arsenal +0 (1.90)

In Summary

After adding the handicap to the scoreline, you will have the actual result on the Asian Handicap.

Once this is done, it's as simple as this. If your bet has won by 0.5 or more, then your bet is a winner. If your bet has lost by 0.5 or more, then your bet is a loser.

If you win your bet by 0.25 or more, then you win half and half is refunded.

If you lose your bet by 0.25 or more, then you lose half and half is refunded.

I've seen many Asian Handicap Betting Guides and I can honestly say they are all badly written or confusing. I hope you find this one much easier to understand.
