Asian handicap betting explained

Asian handicap 0:0 (Level ball – Draw no bet – DNB) 

Here the game starts 0-0. No advance is given to any team. Draw option is eliminated and the rules are simple.

Example : Manchester United vs Chelsea AH – 0:0

Home Odds – 1.90 , Away Odds – 1.95

* You bet 100$ on Manchester Uinted to win 0:0 AH at 1.90 odds. To win your coupon, you need Manchester to win the game, simply to win. If Manchester wins, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100 = 90$. If a possible draw occurs, you get your stake (100$) back. No wager, no bet. If Manchester loses the game, you lose your bet too.

* It is the same with Chelsea 0:0 AH. You need Chelsea to win the game, and if a draw occurs, you get your money back. No Wager, no bet. If Chelsea loses, you lose your bet too.

You may see some bookies offer something like DNB, Draw no bet, or Level ball. It is the same with 0:0 AH and in most cases used in football bets.

Asian handicap 0.25

Here the game starts 0-1/4. The underdog team is advanced with a quarter goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. It is more complicated from half AH. You win, win half, lose or lose half stake of your bet. Lets examine it by the example below.

Example : PSG vs Nantes AH – 0:1/4

Home Odds – 2.00 , Away Odds – 1.90

* You bet 100$ on PSG to win -1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need PSG to win the game. If PSG wins, you win 100$ X 2.00 = 200$. It means you make 200$ – 100$ = 100$ profit. If a draw occurs, you lose half of your stake (50$) and the other half (50$) is back. If Nantes wins the game, you lose your all stake.

* You bet 100$ on Nantes to win +1/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Nantes to win the game. If Nantes wins the game, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. It means you make 190$ – 100$ = 90$ profit. If a draw occurs, you get half of your stake (50$) back and win the other half (50$) at 1.90. It means, you win 50$ (back) + 95$ (50$ X 1.90) = 145$. Your profit is 145$ – 100$ = 45$.

Asian handicap 0.5

Here the game starts 0-1/2. The underdog team is advanced with a half goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. In addition, there is no money back in any case. You will win or lose your money.

Example : Roma vs Juventus AH – 0:1/2

Home Odds – 1.85 , Away Odds – 2.00

* You bet 100$ on Roma to win -1/2 AH (we use minus (-) if the team is favored by AH). To win your coupon, you need Roma to win. In any other cases, you lose your money. If Roma wins, you win 100$ X 1.85 = 185$. It means you make 185$ – 100$ = 85$ profit. If Juventus wins or the game ends tie, you lose your money.

* You bet 100$ on Juventus to win +1/2 AH (we use plus (+) if the team is advanced by AH). To win your coupon, you need Juventus to win or tie the game at the end of 90 minute-time. If one of these occurs, you win 100$ X 2.00 = 200$. It means you make 200$ – 100$ = 100$ profit. If Porto wins the game, you lose your money.

Roma wins and Roma -1/2 AH is the same things in Asian handicap betting.

Asian handicap 0.75

Here the game starts 0-3/4. The underdog team is advanced with a quarter goal before the kick off. Draw option is eliminated. It is different from 1/4 AH by a slight exception.

Example : Sevilla vs Barcelona AH – 3/4:0

Home Odds – 1.90, Away Odds – 1.90

* You bet 100$ on Sevilla to win +3/4 AH. (Here the home team is underdog; as a result of it, Sevilla is advanced by the AH). To win your coupon, you need Sevilla to win or tie the game. If Sevilla wins or ties the game, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100$ = 90$. Consider that the game ends by Barcelona win by 1 (0-1, 1-2, 2-3). Thus, you lose your half stake (50$) and the other half (50$) returns. If Barcelona wins the game by 2 or more goals (0-2, 1-3, 0-3), you lose your all stake.

* You bet 100$ on Barcelona to win -3/4 AH. To win your coupon, you need Barcelona to win by 2 or more goals (0-2, 0-3, 1-3). If Barcelona wins the game by 2 or more goals, you win 100$ X 1.90 = 190$. Your profit is 190$ – 100$ = 90$. If Barcelona wins by 1 goal (0-1, 1-2, 2-3), you get your half stake (50$) and win the other half (50$ X 1.90). You win 50$ (back) + 95 (50$ X 1.90) = 145$. Your profit is 145$ – 100$ = 45$. If the game ends tied or Sevilla wins, you lose your all stake.

Asian handicap -1

Here the game starts 0-1. One goal advance is given to underdog team. Draw option is eliminated again.

Example : Milan vs Palermo AH – 0:1

Home Odds – 1.80, Away Odds – 2.05

* You bet 100$ on Milan to win -1 AH. To win your coupon, you need Milan to win by 2 or more goals (2-0, 3-0, 3-1). If Milan wins by 2 or more goals, you win 100$ X 1.80 = 180$. You profit is 180$ – 100$ = 80$. If Milan wins by 1 goal (1-0, 2-1, 3-2..), you get your money back. No wager. If the game ties or Palermo wins, you lose all your stake.

* You bet 100$ on Palermo to win +1 AH. To win your coupon, you need Palermo to win, or a draw. If the game ends drawn or Palermo wins, you win 100$ X 2.05 = 205$. Your profit is 205$-100$ = 105$. If Palermo lose by 1 (1-0, 2-1, 3-2), you get your money back. No Wager. However, any Milan win by 2 or more, make you lose your bet.
