Originating from Asia, Asian Handicap betting ups the thrill and excitement of conventional fixed odds betting by eliminating the possibility of the draw outcome.

Asian Handicap is a form of betting that creates a more level betting environment between two mismatched competing teams by giving a "handicap" (expressed in goals or points) to the teams before kick-off. In Asian Handicap, a goal deficit is given to the team more likely to win (i.e. the Favourite) and a head start is given to the team less favoured to win (i.e. the Underdog).


As an example, in the event above, Manchester United being the favourite team receives a goal deficit of half a goal (0.50) before event kick-off.

Favourite: Manchester United (- 0.50)
Underdog: West Ham United (+ 0.50)

In the case if you place a bet on West Ham United with a stake of $100.
