What is Asian Handicap?
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)
