We believe that Hobro can deliver a surprise and get a draw in this match, while maintaining the possibility that they lose the game with 1 goal in deficit. We choose to play +0.75 (+0.5, +1.0) at odds 2,14 for 100 DKK. One of the most favored types is 0.0 which means you’ll get your bet refunded if the match ends in a draw. It’s also possible to bet on a regular victory as we know if from 1X2.

If the competition ends in a draw, the entire amount you wagered will be returned. On the other hand, Asian handicap bets eliminate the possibility of a draw by adding points to the underdog. Therefore, the chances of both teams ending up with the same score are low. Asian Handicap, also known as AH is a type of betting that gives one of the teams an advantage over the other team. AH offers the underdog team an edge while removing the draw option for punters.

The name Asian handicap is simply based on where the style of betting originated from. Asian handicap betting started in Indonesia, Asia and has since then become popular worldwide. We do not charge any money and offer any odds for any bet. The Asian Handicap is a type of bet used in many sports to even out the imbalance between two teams. Whether you’re a professional punter or someone who prefers recreational betting, you’ve probably already heard of Asian handicap betting.

Half lines are different from full lines because they have a value that ends with a .5. Betting with the +0.5 half line means that the team you place a bet on starts the match with a 0.5 goal lead. This means that you get to win if the team wins or there is a draw. Similarly, if you bet on +1.5, one team starts with a positive 1.5 goal lead. Betting with a -1 handicap would mean your chosen team should win by two or more goals for your bet to be a success.

Again, let’s take a look at an example to help bring this to life, this time a 2014 English Premier League game between Liverpool and Chelsea. Imagine that the handicap for the fixture was set at -0.5 /+0.5, which means that Liverpool start with a half goal disadvantage while Chelsea starts with a half goal advantage. The below tables explain what would happen to your bet depending on the result of the match. There are three possible outcomes to this type of Asian handicap bet – either you win, you lose or you have your stake returned, which is known as ‘void’ or ‘push’. However, if you did choose you to place a +2.5 on Panama for example. Panama starts the game with a +2.5 goal head-start meaning Belgium has to win by three or more goals for you to lose your bet.

A whole number or points/goals are added to the weaker side, the underdog, and the same number of points is subtracted from the stronger side, the favorite. These points/goals are added/subtracted before the start of the game and your bet wins or losses after the final result of the game is adjusted for the handicap. This option is the same as the traditional Under 1.5 goals. Let’s look at an extremely proven and stable system of bets that was started in Indonesia and founded by the journalist Joe Saumarez Smith in November 1998. A normal bookmaker would offer a range of odds on a soccer game that couldn’t possibly be represented by a 0.5, 0 and 1 goal handicap.
