Single Asian Handicap Bets
A single Asian Handicap bet is a single bet stake on an Asian Handicap selection. Each selection will be given a handicap and you will be presented with two options to choose from.
One team/selection will be given given a handicap to eliminate the perceived difference between the two teams/selections purely for the purpose of betting. If the teams are already well matched the default Asian Handicap may well be 0.
The superior team Asian Handicap will typically be -0.5, -1, -1.5, or -2 goals. By doing this it essentially gives the other team an artificial half goal/goal or more start, which the opposing side must overcome to in order for the bet to win.
Quarter Asian Handicap Bets
Quarter Asian Handicap are slightly more complicated than Single Asian Handicaps. Quarter Asian Handicap bets are shown as as -0.75, -0.25, +0.25, +0.75, etc. A Quarter Asian Handicap bet is a handicap bet split between the two nearest 0.5 intervals. So a £20 bet on a 0.25 handicap bet would be a £10 bet on a 0 handicap and a £10 bet on a 0.5 handicap.
Quarter Asian Handicap bets can also be presented as Double Asian Handicap bets, effectively the same type of Asian Handicap bet. For example a Quarter Asian Handicap bet of -0.25 can also be shown as a Double Asian Handicap bet as 0, -0.5.
Double Asian Handicap Bets
Double Asian Handicap bets comprises of two bets of equal stake and is equivalent of a Quarter Asian Handicap bet.
