Asian handicap betting

Asian handicap betting applies a handicap to the favorite and reduces the possible number of outcomes from three (in traditional 1X2 wagering) to two by eliminating the draw outcome.

The handicap, which is either a whole number, a half-number or a mix of those, is trying to balance the market. In the event that a whole number is used for the handicap, the handicap adjusted final score could result in a draw where all bettors have their original wagers returned as there is no winner.

Quarter (¼) handicaps split the bet between the two closest ½ intervals where the bettor can win and tie (win ½ of wager) or lose and tie (lose ½ wager). The stake is automatically divided equally and placed as 2 separate bets.
