Asian handicap is a way of betting that originates in Asia and mostly used in football. Handicap means that one team has a virtual lead over the other side. Asian handicaps eliminate the chance of a draw in a match, so the possible outcomes are two.
You have many handicap betting options, which are called “lines”. The following table shows the most used Asian handicap lines in soccer and their outcomes depending on the team result:
Asian handicap 0.0
Market example: Chelsea odds are @1.90 – Liverpool odds are @1.95.
You are betting £100 on Chelsea on the 0.0 Asian handicap football betting market.
If Chelsea wins, you win the bet.
If a draw occurs, your stake is refunded.
If Chelsea loses, you lose the bet.
You may see some companies offer something like DNB, Draw no bet, or Level ball. These are the same bets with 0.0 AH and, in most cases, used in football markets.
0.25 Handicap Example
The game starts with a score of 0 – 0.25 (1/4 goal handicap). The underdog team has a quarter goal lead before kick-off.
You win, win the half, lose, or lose the half stake of your bets. Let’s see an example.
Monaco @2.00 – Lyon @1.90
You are betting £100 on Monaco to win the -0.25 Asian handicap market.
If Monaco wins, you win the bet.
If the result is a draw, you lose half of the stake (£50), and the other half (£50) is back to you.
If Lyon wins, the bet loses.
You are betting £100 on Lyon to win the +0.25 handicap.
If Lyon wins, you win the bet.
If a draw occurs, you get the half stake back and win the other half (£50) at 1.90 odds. You are still in profit.
If Lyon loses, you lose the bet.
0.5 Handicap Example
In this case, the game starts with a score of 0:0.5 (half goal handicaps). The outsider team has the advantage of a half goal before kick-off.
Porto @1.85 vs Benfica @2.00
You are betting £100 on Porto to win -0.5 Asian handicap. We use the minus symbol (-) if the team has the lead by the betting markets.
If Porto wins, you win the bet.
If Benfica wins or the game ends in a draw, you lose the bet.
You are betting £100 on Benfica to win +0.5 Asian Handicap. We use the plus symbol (+) if the team has the lead by the betting markets.
If Benfica wins or the game ends in a draw, you win the bet.
If Porto wins, you lose your bet.
Porto to win and Porto -0.5 AH are the same bets and usually have the same odds.
0.75 Handicap Example
Here the game starts with a score of 0:0.75 (3/4 goal handicap). The underdog team has a head start of a quarter goal before kick-off.
It is different from the 0.25 Asian handicap betting market with a slight exception.
Betis @1.90 vs Real Madrid @1.90
You are betting £100 on Betis to win +0.75 Asian handicap. The home team is the underdog. As a result of it, Betis has the 0.75 goal handicap of the offer.
If Betis wins or ties the game, you win the bet.
If Real Madrid wins by one goal difference (0-1, 1-2, 2-3), you lose half of your stake (£50), and the other half (£50) returns to you.
If Real Madrid wins the game by two or more goals (0-2, 1-3, 0-3), you lose your stake.
You are betting £100 on Madrid to win -0.75 Asian handicap. To win your bet, you need Madrid to win by two or more goals difference (0-2, 0-3, 1-3).
If Madrid wins the game by two or more goals, you win the bet.
If Madrid wins by one goal (0-1, 1-2, 2-3), you win half of your stake (£50) and win the other half (£50 × 1.90). You are in profit again.
If the game ends in a draw or Betis wins, you lose your stake.
-1 Handicap Example
In this case, the match starts with a score of 0:1. The underdog team has a head start of one goal before kick-off (handicap 0:1).
Juventus @1.80 vs Bologna @2.05
You are betting £100 on Juventus to win -1 Asian handicap. To be a winner, you need Juventus to win by two or more goals (2-0, 3-0, 3-1).
If Juventus wins by two or more goals, you win the bet.
If Juventus wins by one goal (1:0, 2:1, 3:2), you get your stake back.
If the match ends in a draw or Bologna wins, you lose the bet.
You are betting £100 on Bologna to win +1 Asian handicap. To be a winner, you need Bologna to win or a draw result.
If the match result is a draw or Bologna wins, you win the bet.
If Bologna loses by one goal (1:0, 2:1, 3:2), your stake is refunded.
With any Juventus win by two or more goals, you lose the bet.
The same goes on when the home team is the outsider. Usually, it is displayed like handicap 1:0 or handicap +1.
-1.5 Handicap Example
One of the most famous Asian lines in football handicap betting is the -1.5 line. Here the game starts with the 0:1.5 line (handicap 1.5).
The underdog team has the advantage of a goal and a half before kick-off. There is no stake back in this market.
Barcelona @1.90 vs Espanyol @2.00
You are betting £100 in Barcelona -1.5 AH. To win your bet, you need Barcelona to win with two or more goals difference. In any other case, you lose the bet.
If Barcelona wins with two goals or more, you win the bet. Your profit will be £90.
If Barcelona wins with a goal difference, or the match result is a draw, or Espanyol wins, you lose your stake.
Let’s suppose you bet £100 on Espanyol +1.5 Asian handicap.
If Espanyol does not lose or lose with just a goal difference (1-0, 2-1), you win the bet.
If Barcelona wins with two or more goals difference, you lose the bet.
Barcelona -1.5 Asian handicap is the same as Barcelona -1 EH (European handicap).
Alternative Asian handicap markets
If you already understood the main Asian handicaps described above, it will be easy for you to understand all other alternative handicaps.
The concept is the same, with advantages given to the home or away side, but with bigger handicaps. For example, -1.75, -2, -2.25, -2.5, -2.75 etc.
Each bookmaker lists the Asian handicaps different; for example, Bet365 offers the standard AH option, depending on the odds.
All other AH options listed in a different section as ‘Alternative Asian handicaps’.
Some famous Asian bookmakers have their unique style, and they display alternative options somewhat different.
Asian handicap betting conclusion
Many times we choose to add Asian handicap bets to our slips. We usually find better odds on the classic lines, which are the same as the direct 1×2 outcomes.
We also use it when we foresee some teams with a great form to win more comfortable than expected to get a better return with a little bit more risk.
I would suggest Asian handicap betting to a new player, but he should first understand the lines and the outcomes.
The rules may look complicated with the first point of view, but in the end, you will find it easy, as most of the bettors do. Τake some time to learn the handicaps correctly.
Many players are using Asian handicap bets, especially in football betting. Always remember that there is no draw result in Asian handicap betting.

Avoiding parlays is a common opinion among expert bettors that to be successful at sports betting. However, contrary to what the professionals think, parlay betting is prevalent. Parlay bet allows bettors to win much higher earnings than a simple bet, that’s why it becomes popular. Bookmakers encourage bettors to make these types of bets. But have you ever wondered why?
High Odds And Minimal Hit Odds
Also called accumulators, parlays consist of unifying several simple bets in a single bet. Thanks to this, we can tailor a bet with high odds to suit us. We can calculate a two-match parlay’s odds by multiplying the odds of each chosen event. Suppose we bet that two soccer games end in a draw. Also, let’s imagine that the tie odds in each match would be 3.7 and 3.8. In that case, the odds of our parlay would be 3.7 x 3.8 = 14.06. As we can see, we will obtain a very high odd.
If we create, for example, a parlay with four single bets with odds of 1.5, 2.0, 4.0, and 2.5, respectively, the parlay odd will be 1.5 x 2.0 x 4.0 x 2.5 = 30. This is a very attractive odd, isn’t it? However, we must observe that as the odds increase, our success probability decreases. We can calculate the odds’ implicit probability as the odds’ inverse. In our first example, the implicit probability was equal to 1 / 14.06 = 0.0711. That is, our winning probability is 7.11%
In the second example, the odds are 30, and our hitting probability is 3.33%. We can see our chances of winning drastically decrease by placing parlay bets. The risk we run is very high.
Beware Of The Bookie’s Spread When Placing Parlay Bets
All odds of a bookmaker carry a spread. This spread reduces the odds concerning the event’s real occurring probability and represents the bookie’s profit. There is a relatively simple formula to estimate this spread, and it is the following:
Bookie’s spread = 1 – [(1 – simple spread) ^ Number of bets]
If we do a three-game parlay with an average spread of 5%, we will have the following:
Bookie’s spread = 1 – [(1 – 0.05) ^ 3] = 1 – (0.95 x 0.95 x 0.95) = 0.143
So, this means that the bookie’s commission is 14.3%. The spread almost tripled when combining three bets! Remember that the spread is the bookmaker’s profit. So, the reason for the great interest of the bookies in which we place parlays is clear.
After the above, it is clear that we will have very low hitting probabilities if we combine bets to obtain very high odds. In this way, our profits will be much lower. We could even fall into long losing streaks that lead us to lose our bankroll. We must also bear in mind the effect of the bookie spread. When we place an accumulator bet, we must place all bets with the same sportsbook. Therefore, we cannot benefit from reducing the spread by looking for the most convenient odds in different sportsbooks.
