Asian handicap


What is Asian Handicap? 

Asian Handicap is a form of betting, which has become very popular in Asia (thus the name Asian Handicap). You may also have heard about Asian Handicap from the name "Hang Cheng".

"Handicap" means that a team has received a virtual head start, effectively leading the game with 1/2 goal, 1/4 goal, 3/4 goal, 1 goal, 1 1/4 goal, etc.
When you bet with Asian Handicap, the possibility for a draw in a game is eliminated. Only home or away win exist. If the game ends in a draw, you will get your stake back. There are perhaps some confusing terminology, for instance half-handicap (1/2-goal), and quarter handicap (1/4-goal). We will explain this thoroughly in this article.

Asian Handicap, something for you?

Asian Handicap is definitively something for you ! We are all familiar with fixed odds betting. It has been, and still is the "normal" way of betting.
But with Asian Handicap, there is a much better chance of profit, due to the fact that you get your stakes back (or at least parts of it, depending on the handicap), when a draw occurs. In fixed odds betting, you would lose your money if you bet on something else than the actual result. You can bet on teams which you really don't belive will win the match, but due to the handicap, your team may still provide you with a profit !

Asian Handicap betting also provides much more excitement, as one single goal can take you from heaven to hell.
Generally, you increase your mathematical chances of winning on a single bet from 33.3% (fixed odds betting), to 50% (using Asian Handicap, although depending on the handicap).

What's required ? And where do I bet ?

The worst thing by Asian Handicap ,in my opinion, is the rather complex way of figuring out the return. Ofcourse you will get used to it after a while, but nevertheless it's a "must" to check with the tables showing the possible returns. (see Result calculation table below).

You will also need an account with companies offering Asian Handicap. Not all bookmakers offer Asian Handicap. Try opening account with Jphan. for a start. Jphan is a recognised Asian Handicap bookmaker. Also the more recognised bookmakers offer Asian Handicap, and you shouls definitively open an account with the likes of Betinternet, Interwetten, and Gamebookers.

Result calculation table


The table below is provided by our partner,
Globetting. Info in this article also comes from partners Bethelp, and Asianhandicap.com. Read their excellent articles about Asian Handicap aswell.

The table shows your winnings for given results at a given handicap. As you can see, you will get half your stake back, or lose only half your stake when there's a 1/4, 3/4, 1 1/4 etc handicap. If a straight handicap (0:0, 0:1, or 1:0) results in a game ending with a draw, then you will get your stake back, because it is a "no bet" situation.

On half-handicaps, there is never a "no bet" situation. One of the teams must win, whatever the final result is.
