Asian Handicapped betting system; the bettors will have three possibilities: lose, win, or void.

Asian Handicap is a form of sports betting primarily used in football that enables the bettors to gain more profit. Now, let’s see this term in a broader sense; in sports, the team doesn't need to be always balanced, one team may be stronger, and another may be in a weaker position. Such a situation gives the bookmakers a chance to gain good profit because there is no draw system in the Asian Handicapped betting system; the bettors will have three possibilities: lose, win, or void. 

Asian Handicapped sports betting works on the ‘line system,’ which means you will get a series of digits ranging from 0 to 2, including positive and negative values. Here, the positive symbol is offered to the Underdog team, whose winning chance is low, but it gains handicapped advantages. However, the Favorite one gets the negative symbol, and it faces some consequences of the handicapped betting system. Now, it’s time to dive into the Asian handicapped betting ocean to find its working methodology and other features.

What is the Asian handicapped sports betting line system
Sports betting works on certain principles; for instance, in the conventional one, you will have to focus on the odds and performance of players & teams. But in the Asian handicapped system frequently used in Thailand’s biggest betting site SBObet there is an additional aspect that you will have to consider, i.e. the line approach. Here, all the line possibilities are explained, which will enable you to know this betting system more efficiently.

Asian handicap: 0.0
To understand the line concept 0.0, let's begin with an example; suppose there is a football match between Manchester United and Real Madrid, and their odds are 1.8 and 1.85, respectively. If you place $100 on Manchester United and the team wins, you will win the bet; you will also lose the bet if a team loses. Here comes the best part of the Asian handicapped feature, if the game draws, your bet stake will be refunded, which means you won’t face any loss.

Asian handicap: 0.25 (both positive and negative)

Asian handicap -0.25 approach
In this line method, the game begins with 0:0.25, and it states that the underdog is leading the game before the kick-off. If there is a match between Manchester United and Aston Villa and the odds for the same are 2.0 and 1.9. If you place a bet of $100 on Manchester United, then there will be three possibilities in the -0.25-betting line; if the team wins, you win, if a team loses, you lose the bet, and if there is a draw between the two teams, you will get only half of your original bet, i.e., $50.

Asian handicap +0.25 approach
In the case of a +0.25 handicapped line system, if there is a draw between the two teams, you will get the first half of your original bet ($50), and another half will be your winning amount, i.e., $50x2.0= $100. So, the overall amount you will get in this line system is $100+$50=$150. 

Handicap line method: 0.5

-0.5 handicap line
This lining method also gives the advantage to the underdog, and here, the game begins with 0:0.5. Now, let’s suppose the odd of Arsenal is 1.6, and for Everton, it is 2.0, and if you place a $100 bet on Arsenal and your approach is towards the -0.5-line method; if Arsenal win, you will win the bet, if the match is a draw, you will lose the bet.

+0.5 handicap line
On the off chance, if you go with a +0.5- line system, then at the draw situation, you will get the bet amount, which means you will not lose anything. But, if the team loses the game, then obviously, you will lose the bet.

handicap line system: 0.75

+0.75 handicap line
This line system shows that the underdog team is already ahead a quarter before the kick-off. If there is a match between Leicester City and Southampton having the odds of 2.0 and 1.68, respectively, then as per the +0.75- line approach, your winning condition will depend upon the goals. For instance, if your wagering amount is $100 on Leicester City, you will get $200 if the team wins. But if the opponent team (Southampton) wins the match but the goal difference is of 1 margin (1-0, 2-1, 4-3), then, in that case, you will get only 50% of your betting amount, i.e., $50.

-0.75 handicap line
On the off chance, if you go with the -0.75-line method, then to win the bet, your team (Leicester City) must defeat the opponent team (Southampton) with a goal difference of 2 (2-0, 4-2, 5-3). If the goal difference is 1, then your original bet amount will get divided into two parts; the first half, i.e., $50, will be refunded, and the next $50 will multiply with the odds, and this will be your winning amount. So, net profit through this method will be {$50+ ($50x2)} = $50+$100=$150. This shows that you are in a win-win situation.

Handicap line method 1

Line method -1
In this betting approach, the underdog team is already one goal ahead before the kick-off. Let us suppose two teams, Chelsea and Liverpool, are on the battlefield with the odds of 1.9 and 2.10, respectively, and your wager is $100 on Chelsea. If Chelsea defeats Liverpool and maintains the goal difference of two or more (2-0, 3-0, 4-1, 5-2), you will win the bet. But if the goal difference is 1 (1-0, 2-1, 3-2), you will get your betting amount back. On the off chance, if a match is a draw, you will lose the bet.

Line method +1
In this method, if the game is a draw, you will win the bet, but if your team loses the match with a goal difference of 1, i.e., Chelsea got defeated by Liverpool (0-1, 2-1,3-2), then you will get a refund (original amount). If the opponent team wins the game by the goal difference of 2, you will lose your bet.

Bottom line
The Asian Handicapped Betting method is quite popular in the Asia-Pacific region, and most bettors love this because they earn a lot. The method initially originated from Indonesia, and with time, it reached globally, and now, it has made a deep impact on sports betting. So, if you are familiar with this method, select your favorite team, pick the best odds and choose the convenient line approach to win big in sports betting.
