Asian Handicap Betting

Asian Handicap or Asian Line Betting is a bet type that offers a better chance of winning than conventional fixed betting odds. Asian Handicap originated in Asia and today is taking Europe by storm.

IASbet.com has the largest selection of Asian Handicap markets in the world

Asian Handicaps are the smart way to bet on soccer:

  • You have a 50% better chance of winning than with traditional odds
  • You bet on only two outcomes, the home or away team, the draw is eliminated
  • You will get more frequent returns from your stakes
  • You can win your bet even if your team draws or loses the match
  • IASbet.com has the largest selection of Asian H’cap and Live Asian H’cap markets in the world

The Handicap
The handicap is given in an attempt to make the two teams equal for betting purposes. The Handicap is given as head start to the underdog, so they have a virtual lead in the game. For example with 1/2 goal (0.5), 1 goal (1), etc. For betting purposes, the winning team is decided on the final score, after 90 minutes (normal time) after taking the handicap into account.

There are two types of Asian Handicaps, Single handicaps and Split (Double or Quarter) Handicaps, this is explained in the examples below.

The Favourite
The favourite has to overcome the indicated handicap, and will have it taken away from its final score. The handicap for the favourite is preceded by a minus (-).

The Underdog
As the underdog is given a head start, they will have the handicap added to its final score. The handicap for the underdog is indicated by a plus (+).

Single Handicap Example: 0.5 ball handicap
The underdogs will start the game with a score of +0.5, which then means there can’t be a draw result when the handicap is included. The favourites have to win by at least 1 goal to win the bet, while bets on the underdog win with any other result.Example: 0 ball handicap
If the two teams are evenly matched a 0 ball handicap would be offered. In this case you can bet on either team to win the match. If the match ends in a draw all bets are refunded.Example: 1 ball handicap
The favourite will start the game with a score of -1 which then means, the favourite has to win by 2 or more goals to win the bet, while the bet will be refunded if the favourite only beat the underdogs by 1 goal. Conversely, the underdog will win the bet if only they win or draw the match, while the bets will be refunded if the favourite only beat the underdogs by 1 goal.Please Note: you must either deduct the handicap from the favourite or add it to the underdogs final score – not both.
Split (Double or Quarter) HandicapThe best way to understand this type of handicap is to imagine you have two separate bets with your stake being split equally between the two handicaps, this can result in the following scenarios. 

  • Full Win: Both bets win
  • Half Win: One bet wins and the other bet draws (stake returned)
  • Half Lose: One bet draws (stake returned) and the other bet loses
  • Full Loss: Both bets lose

Example: 0.5/1 ball handicap
With a handicap of 0.5/1, half your stake will be at a 0.5 ball handicap, and half at a 1 ball handicap.

Argentina (- 0.5/ -1) @ $1.95
Germany (+ 0.5/+1) @ $1.95

A stake of $100 on Argentina (-0.5,-1) means:
$50 of your stake will go on Argentina ‘minus half a goal’ and, the other $50 will go on Argentina ‘minus one goal’. You do not need to place the two $50 stakes separately. This will be automatically recognised by our system when you place your $100 stake.

To work out your return, simply calculate the return from each of the two separate $50 bets. Each bet is calculated in the same manner as a single ball handicap. Thus, if Argentina win the match by one goal, the $50 stake at ‘minus half a goal’ is determined to be a winning bet, and the other half of the wager ($50 at ‘minus one goal’) is determined to be a refund. You will win on your full $100 stake (both $50 bets) if Argentina win by 2 or more goals

IMPORTANT!
Live Asian Handicap Betting
When betting live on Asian Handicap, you are betting only on the remainder of the match. This means that any previous goals scored in the match are irrelevant for the outcome of your wager. The outcome of your wager will be determined only by the goals (if any) scored after you place your bet.
Live Under and Over Betting
When betting live on the Under and Over number of goals, you are betting on the total number of goals scored in the match during normal time. This means that any previous goals scored in the match are included in the outcome of your wager.
