Asian Handicap - What is it?

Article Index: Example 1 | Example 2 | Example 3 | Result Calculator | Asian Handicap vs Fixed Odds

Asian Handicap (also known as Hang Cheng) eliminates the possibility of a draw in a soccer game. This means that either the home side or the away side is a winner on your bet. Each team is given a handicap by the bookmaker, which is supposed to balance them so that an equal number of betters will bet each side.

Example:
Let's say Milan play Juventus at San Siro

The handicap is:
 

Home team

Away team

Odds home

Handicap

Odds away

Milan

Juventus

2.00

0 : 1/2

1.85

This can be read like: "Milan giving 1/2 ball to Juventus"
Said in another way: Juventus have a "a half goal" (ball) advantage when the match starts.

Bet on Milan:
If Milan win the game you will win stake x 2,00 (odds), otherwise you will lose.

Bet on Juventus:
If the game ends in a tie or Juventus win you will win stake x 1,85 (odds)

Let's make another example:

Arsenal play Leeds at Highbury

The handicap is:
 

Home team

Away team

Odds home

Handicap

Odds away

Arsenal

Leeds

1.925

0 : 3/4

1.975

1/4, 3/4, 1 1/4 etc. asian handicaps bring new rules into the game
This can be read like: "Arsenal giving 3/4 ball to Leeds". It can also be known as , 1 ball ("half, one ball")

Bet on Arsenal:
If Arsenal win the game by two goals or more you will win full stake x 1,925 (odds)
If Arsenal win the game by one goal you will win half your stake: 1,925 (odds) x 0.5 x stake.

Bet on Leeds:
If the game ends in a tie or Leeds win, you will win stake x 1,975 (odds)
If Arsenal win the game by one goal you will lose half your stake: 1.975(odds) x 0.5.

We will make a third example:

Barcelona play Real Madrid at Nou Camp

The handicap is: 

Home team

Away team

Odds home

Handicap

Odds away

Barcelona

Real Madrid

1.925

0 : 1

1.975

This can be read like: "Barcelona giving 1 ball to Real Madrid"

Bet on Barcelona:
If Barcelona win the game by two goals or more you will win stake x 1,925 (odds)
If Barcelona win the game by one goal you will get your stake back

Bet on Real Madrid:
If the game ends in a tie or Real Madrid win you will win stake x 1,975 (odds)
If Barcelona win the game by one goal you will get your stake back.

 Asian Handicap vs Fixed Odds
The advantages of the two different ways to bet on a soccer match:

    Asian Handicap
    - Eliminate the possibility of a draw.
    - You get high prices on favourites.
    - If a quarter handicap match ends in a draw, you only lose 50% of your stake.
    - Good fun when following a match live - one single goal is likely to change everything.
    - When playing multiple betting the number of outcomes are reduced from 27 (3x3x3) to only 8 (2x2x2).

    Fixed Odds
    - A very high number of bookmakers to choose from.
    - Bankers. It is possible to bet on "secure" games, which might be suitable for an accumulator.
    - Bigger odds on outsiders.
    - Much easier to find value bets. You only need home-draw-away estimations, in Asian Handicap it is required that you are able to predict exact results.
