What is an Asian Handicap line?

elegant business multitasking multimedia manAgents and players alike tend to have a hard time understanding what the Asian handicap is and how it works. Since most of the US players are not into soccer that much, gambling on Asian handicap lines tends to be confusing.  There is a main purpose behind this type of line and it is a simple one: eliminate the three way line in soccer. Soccer games can end in a draw and for this reason lines in soccer are normally three way lines. You basically get a moneyline for each team to win outright and the additional line in case the game ends in a draw.  This makes the odds of each pick 33% instead of the 50/50 chance you get when wagering on football or basketball spreads. So for this reason the Asian Handicap was created.

How it Works

By eliminating the draw, the player is provided a higher chance that both teams will have 50/50 chance to win the wager. The favorite team gets a goal deficit while the underdog is given a head start.  Many matches are handicapped in ½ and ¼ intervals; both of which eliminate the possibility of a push. Bets on quarters split the bet into two separate bets. This means that you basically put half your wager on each interval. For example if you have a wager on a -1¼, you are basically betting half on -1 and half on -1.5, giving you a chance to win all in case your team wins by 2 goals. You will only lose half his bet if his team wins by a 1 goal difference. We have provided a universal chart for easy reference on team spreads and over/unders.
