Read through the below examples of how Asian Handicapping works and soon you'll be an expert! It may seem a little complex at first, but stick with it!

Example 1

Home team Away team Handicap Odds on a home win Odds on an away win

Man Utd

Lazio

0 : 1/2

1.925

1.975

This can be read as: 'Man United giving 1/2 ball to Lazio'
This means that Lazio has a 1/2 ball advantage when the game starts.
a) If you bet on Man United you will win stake x odds if Man United win the game, otherwise you will lose.
b) If you bet on Lazio you will win stake x odds if the game ends in a draw or Lazio win the game.

To see how much you win or lose, check out the Bet Calculation further down the page.

Example of a bet for this match
Bet 1 : You bet 100 on Man United (the stake is 100)
Bet 2 : You bet 100 on Lazio (the stake is 100)

Bet Result Calculation of this game looks like this:

Match Results: Man Utd vs Lazio Home (Man United) Away (Lazio) Bet 1: 100
on Man Utd Odds: 1.925
Bet 2: 100
on Lazio Odds: 1.975
  0 1/2    
0-0 * -100% +100% You lose all your stake (100) You win (stake x odds) = 197.50
1-0 +100% -100% You win (stake x odds) = 192.50 You lose all your stake (100)
0-1  *** -100% +100% You lose all your stake (100) You win (stake x odds) = 197.50
2-0  ** +100% -100% You win (stake x odds) = 192.50 You lose all your stake (100)
3-0  *** +100% -100% You win (stake x odds) = 192.50 You lose all your stake (100)

* = 0-0 (or any draw)
** = a 3-1, 4-2, 5-3 etc. result is the same as a 2-0 result, etc.
*** = If the result is higher than 0-1, ex. 0-2, 1-3 or 1-4 etc, you look at the 0-1 row. Also the other way, if it is a home win by more than 3 goals (4-0, 6-1, etc) you look at the 3-0 row.

For example, lets argue the match ended 0-1.
Bet 1 (100 on Man United): You lose 100
Bet 2 (100 on Fiorentina): You win 197.50 (the net profit is 197.50 - 100 = 97.50)

Conclusion :
Look at Bet Result Calculation. If there is +100 you win. If there is -100 you lose.

How much money do you get if you win the bet ? (a +100 in the result rows): Winning = Stake x odds. Net winning = Winning - Stake

How much money do you lose if you lose the bet ? (a -100 in the result rows): The stake

 

Example 2

If there is a quarter handicap (1/4, 3/4, 1 1/4, 1 1/3 or 2 1/4), then special rules come into play if the game is a draw. You win half of what you could have won or you lose only half your stake.

Example

Home team Away team Handicaps Odds on a home win Odds on an away win

Cardiff

Swansea

0 : 3/4

1.825

2.075

You can read this like: 'Cardiff giving 3/4 ball to Swansea'. This means that Swansea have a 3/4 ball advantage when the game starts.

This means that if you bet:

a) on Cardiff you win stake x odds if Cardiff by two goals or more.
b) on Cardiff you win 50% of a full net winning if Cardiff win by one goal.
c) on Swansea you win stake x odds if Swansea win or the match is a draw.
d) on Swansea you lose 50% of the stake if Swansea win by one goal.

Example of a bet for this match:
Bet 1: You bet 100 on Cardiff (the stake is 100)
Bet 2: You bet 100 on Swansea (the stake is 100)

Bet Result Calculation of this game looks like this

Result :  Cardiff vs Swansea Home (Cardiff) Away (Swansea) Bet 1: 100 on Cardiff, odds 1.825 Bet 2: 100 on Swansea, odds 2.075
0-0 -100% +100% You lose all your stake (100) You win (stake x odds) = 207.50
1-0 +50% -50% You win 50% of a full net winning

You lose 50% of your stake (50)

0-1 -100% +100% You lose 100 You win (stake x odds) = 207.50
2-0 +100% -100% You win (stake x odds)  = 182.50 You lose all your stake (100)
3-0 +100% -100% You win (stake x odds) = 182.50 You lose all your stake (100)

If you look at the 1-0 results the row indicates a +50 % win or a -50% lose

Bet 1 (100 on Cardiff)
Winning = 100 x 1.825 = 182.50
Net winning (winning - stake) = 182.50  - 100 = 82.50
Since the result is a draw your win is only 50%.
Therefore the win decreases by 50%, and you get 50% of 82.50 (In other words: 82.50 / 2) = 41.25

Bet 2 (100 on Swansea)
This bet loses, but because the result is a tie you only lose half of the stake.
In this case 100 / 2 =  50

Conclusion

Look at Bet Result Calculation. If there is
+50 you win. If there is -50 you lose.

How much money do you get if you win the bet?    (a
+50 in the result rows): Winning = Stake x odds. Net Winning = (Winning - Stake) / 2

How much money do you lose if you lose the bet (a -50 in the result rows): Half of your stake

 

Example III

If you look at the Bet Result Calculation you will find some cells with the text No Bet. This is because Asian Handicap eliminates the possibility of a draw result. Consequently, there will be some scores for which you neither win nor lose. You get your stake back.

Example:

Home team Away team Handicaps Odds on a home win Odds on an away win
Wales Moldova 0 : 1 1.925 1.975

You can read this like : 'Wales giving 1 ball to Watford'
This means that Watford have a 1 ball advantage when the game starts.
a) If you bet on Wales, you win stake x odds if Wales win by two goals or more.
b) If you bet on Moldova you win stake x odds if Moldova win or the game ends with a draw.

If the game ends 1-0 to Wales, we have a No bet situation. This is because Wales gave "1 ball to Moldova", and the game 'ended' 1-1. A draw is not permitted in Asian Handicap. You do not win or lose. You get your stake back.
