1 You eliminate the possibility of a draw result, increasing your main winning chance from 33.3% to 50% in a single game.
2 If a quarter handicap game ends in a draw, and you fail to win your bet, you only lose 50% of your stake.
3 Depending on the handicap you can win your bet even if the team you bet on don't win the game.
4 You can bet on a team you believe will lose the game, but because of a big handicap you can still win the bet. Typical here is when the favourite team win the game with only one goal.
5 When following the match 'live', tension is high since a single goal can take you from losing to winning (or the other way around).
6 If you place multiple bets (accumulator), the number of possible outcomes is much less than in fixed odds (home/draw/away bets. E.g a treble bet, where all 3 selections must be correct). The number of outcomes is 2 x 2 x 2 = 8. With fixed odds betting the number of outcomes is 3 x 3 x 3 = 27.
