One of the most used methods for betting on sports events is the so called Asian handicap. If you want to be familiar with betting and to be successful you have to learn what Asian handicap is and how to use it for better results.
So, what is Asian handicap? When you bet on the ordinary handicap version you have an advantage given in advance to one of the players or clubs which are going to play with each other.
For example you have a match between Arsenal and Norwich and the guest has a handicap of +1.5. This means that if Arsenal wins with 2:1 your bet for Norwich will be successful because they had margin of 1.5.
On Asian handicap betting the things are a bit more difficult. There you will see something like Norwich +1;+1.5. This means that your bet is divided by two. The first half of it goes to handicap for Norwich +1 and the other half goes to +1.5. So, if Arsenal wins with 2:1 you will win just half of your bet. The other half will be returned to you because when Arsenal wins by one goal the difference has been aligned by the handicap.
How can you use Asian handicap in your betting? Well, it helps you to avoid the draw in football betting for example. When you bet on three possible outcomes it is much more difficult to win against the bookies. With the Asian handicap the possible outcomes are just two and both of them could be evaluate around 2 by the bookie which gives you great chances.
Use Asian handicaps in your betting strategies and you will find many new opportunities for betting success.
