Hellas Verona - Udinese

Hellas Verona have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 3.10 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

Udinese have their work cut out for them this Monday. Most bookmakers online see them as the stronger team, made evident by the 2.30 betting odds for an away win. That’s a fairly slim advantage, though.

The hosts will be keen to make a swift return to winning ways following their last round’s disappointm... read more

Vizela - Portimonense

With 2.23 on home win, the ground is level and three points are everyone’s to take. However, we’d still recommend backing Vizela who should end up victorious in the end against Portimonense.

While Portimonense may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.40 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Vizela’s victory was priced at around 8.50 in the previous ro... read more

Ajax - Go Ahead Eagles

A quick look at the odds reveals just how imbalanced this matchup is. Ajax are almost certain to walk away with 3 more points towards the Eredivisie table, and Go Ahead Eagles fans should probably temper their expectations.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for Go Ahead Eagles, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 29.00.

Getafe - Real Valladolid

Getafe are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Real Valladolid. The odds of 2.35 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

An away win in this match would be a huge surprise and an equally big achievement for Real Valladolid who could consider themselves fortunate if they run away with a point in the bag.

St. Mirren - Livingston

The home team are slightly stronger as far as most online bookies are concerned, but the difference is by no means insurmountable. Both a stalemate and a victory for Livingston are still on the table.

Livingston will have little to hope for in this match. 3.80 betting odds on them winning paint a pretty clear picture and from this standpoint there is little doubt in regard to the outcome of this clash.

Athletic Bilbao - Almería

Athletic Bilbao are likely on their way to a decisive victory, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about the visitors’ prospects. Bookmakers are pricing a home win at 1.47, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Almería are given 7.50 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

Bochum - Köln

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.25. Bochum will indeed find it very hard to beat Köln here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Köln are heading into what’s surely be a challenge. Bochum are not to be taken lightly and an away victory would certainly be a big success for the visitors.

Bochum’s defeat in the previous round was to be expected, frankly. They played as visitors against a considerabl... read more

Antalyaspor - Adana Demirspor

Though the home team can be called favourites, they can’t quite relax going into the match at Adana Demirspor. Their advantage is quite narrow, and just a few mistakes could end up costing them the game.

Things are looking problematic for the visiting side. They are going up against a stronger team which also has a home pitch advantage. Victory is still within reach – they’ll just have to work harder than usual to get it.

Estoril - Porto

There is a big reason why Estoril are given 11.00 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Porto and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

Porto seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.33, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

Estoril will be brimming with confidence following their Vizela away win in the last rou... read more

Luton Town - Blackburn Rovers

With 2.30 on home win, the ground is level and three points are everyone’s to take. However, we’d still recommend backing Luton Town who should end up victorious in the end against Blackburn Rovers.

It would be a minor miracle for Blackburn Rovers to win at Luton Town, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 3.60 price on most online sportsbooks.

Most bookmakers online gave Luton Town a slight edge to win the... read more

Athletic Bilbao - Rayo Vallecano

A home win should not be questioned in this game. Athletic Bilbao are seen as huge favourites to register an easy win against Rayo Vallecano and we recommend you take the generous offer of 1.57.

Considering what they’re up against, Rayo Vallecano can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 7.00 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

The hosts are coming off of a decisive 1:4 away win in their most recent La... read more

Adana Demirspor - Trabzonspor

While the scales seem somewhat tipped in the hosts’ favour, the win is anyone’s to take. Statistically speaking, all 3 outcomes to this match are quite possible, making reliable betting predictions hard to come by.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Trabzonspor are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

A quick look at the odds reveals just how imbalanced this matchup is. Ajax are almost certain to walk away with 3 more points towards the Eredivisie table, and SC Heerenveen fans should probably temper their expectations.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. SC Heerenveen stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 15.00, marking an insurmountable difference.

With the odds set at 1.36 for a home win, Sporting CP winning is clearly the most likely outcome in this matchup. Bigger upsets have happened, of course, but we wouldn’t expect anything but a decisive home win.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for Portimonense, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 9.00.

    If you have some online betting experience under your belt, you might have noticed how the best betting options are usually a bit straighforward. There seems to always be the conflict of fun versus profitability. If you’re looking to spice up your sports betting, look no further.

    Asian Handicaps are a great alternative to straight 1X2 betting. They can go a long way in expanding your options with not just the 1X2 market, but quite a lot of others too. They can give you a fresh perspective and turn a betting option you usually wouldn’t give a second glance into a truly viable betting opportunity.

    So what are they, exactly, and how do Asian Handicaps work? In this beginner-friendly betting guide, we’ll be taking a close look at Asian Handicaps, what they are, and how to use Asian Handicaps to profit with online betting.

    More about Asian Handicap Predictions

What Are Asian Handicaps?

Let’s start out by making it clear that Asian Handicaps are not a betting market – not exactly.

They are a sort of alteration to a standard formula. A modification, if you will. Asian Handicaps are used to level the playing field (for betting purposes) between favourites and underdogs. By now, you’re probably very clear that one team is always given better chances of winning in any match, which is in turn used to determine betting odds. A lot of things are factored in when determining this, such as historical performance, current form, home advantage, player availability, etc. Therefore, wagering on the stronger team is bound to be more attractive to bettors. On the flip side, betting on underdogs yields better rewards.

You’re probably very familiar with this concept. However, to make things even more one-sided, betting theory and statistics strongly support that going for safer bets is more conducive to long-term profits. As a result, this difference in perceived chances can be so big that backing the favourite sometimes ends up with almost negligible profits.

That’s where Asian Handicaps come into play. As the word “handicap” might imply, they are used to counteract this bias by applying either a positive or negative score to a team before the match even begins. The score can be a lot of different values, such as +0, +0.25, +0.5, +1, -0.5, -1, -2… You get the picture. Whether it’s positive or negative depends on whether the team this handicap applies to is considered the favourite or the underdog.

Moreover, applying Asian Handicaps removes the option of a draw. If the match ends up a draw, the bet is considered void and the punter is refunded their full stake. This works exactly like the Draw No Bet market.

Also, don’t let the word “Asian” confuse you. This practice is popular throughout the world, and it’s only called that because it originates from Indonesia.

Why Bet With Asian Handicaps?

You should already be getting a clearer picture of why Asian Handicaps are so popular with punters. Finally, you can back that team of scrappy underdogs you like so much and not feel like you’re just throwing your money away!

In a more practical sense, though, there are a number of advantages and disadvantages to Asian Handicaps. Let’s go over some of the most important ones:

Advantages and disadvantages to Asian Handicaps
  • They provide a sort of separation of your bet from the unpredictable nature of an actual match. Look at it this way: with a +2 handicap, your bet can win even if the team you backed lost the actual game. Alternatively, your bet can be voided even if they lost, so at least you don’t lose money. This greatly lowers the overall risk of your bet, which is always a good thing.
  • Asian Handicaps are an old-time favourite of professional bettors. A part of their overall appeal is that they are known to be great sources of betting value.
  • Eliminating the option of a draw increases your overall chances of winning. Keep this in mind when considering your Asian Handicap betting strategy.
  • This further extends to Accumulators, for which such an increase in safety pays off greatly, given their risky nature.
  • As far as the cons go, Asian Handicaps are not that easy to understand. It can get especially complicated with decimal score adjustments. As such, how they affect betting odds can be hard to understand, which makes it hard to identify value bets.
  • Also, fixed odds for underdogs are understandably much better compared to Asian Handicaps.

How To Bet With Asian Handicaps?

There are three distinct ways of using Asian Handicaps.

Level Asian Handicap

The first one is called a Level Asian Handicap and is the easiest one to understand. This simply means that the score adjustment is a +/-0. They are often used when there is really no perceived advantage to one team or the other. What’s the point then, you may ask? Well, put bluntly, they are there solely to negate the chances of a draw, in the case of which you’d get your stake back. As previously mentioned, a Level Asian Handicap is exactly the same as the Draw No Bet market.

Single Asian Handicap

These are used when there is an obvious imbalance between the teams, and pretty much entail everything we talked about until now. There are many possible options you can go for, and each has a different effect on your bet depending on the handicap. The easiest way to understand is probably to consult the table below. It lists all of the most popular options, and how they affect the outcome of your bet.

Asian Handicap Outcomes

Split Asian Handicap

As you might have gathered, the 0.5 handicaps are used to completely remove the draw outcome as a possibility for your bet. So, what’s up with 0.25, then? Any time you see such a quarter decimal, it indicates a Split Asian Handicap. These are used in cases where the difference between the two teams is less defined. Essentially, they are two different handicap options combined into one. You’re basically splitting your stake to cover two possible options. For example, if the handicap is +0.25, it indicates a combination of a 0 handicap and a +0.5 handicap. We'll illustrate with another table that works much like the previous one.

Due to the stake splitting, you might notice that sometimes your bet ends up with a “win half stake” or “lose half stake”. In the case of winning, this means that half of your stake is multiplied by the odds and treated as a winning bet, while the other half is refunded to you. Conversely, a “lose half stake” means that you lose half of it, while the other half is returned to you.

Split Asian Handicap Outcomes

How to chose matches to bet on Asian Handicaps?

Now that the mechanics are out of the way, it should be a bit easier to figure out which matches are good for Asian Handicaps. One approach is to essentially look for one-sided games in which the winner is clear from the get-go. Now, whether it’s better to bet on the favourite with a negative handicap or the underdog with a positive adjustment is debatable, and varies on a case-by-case basis. In most instances, the odds don’t end up being all that different, but you should consider all of the possible options. Another way of using Asian Handicaps is for simply adding safety to a bet you were going to make without them.

For example, adding a +0.5 or +0.25 can allow you to rest a bit easier and not worry that a single fluke goal will cost you your stake.

Where to bet on Asian Handicaps?

In a similar fashion, the things you should consider when choosing an online bookmaker for Asian Handicaps are not very different than what you’re used too. Most betting sites cover this type of betting these days, although some have more variety and allow you to apply Asian Handicaps to more markets. We suggest going through BettingFellow’slist of the best betting sites in order to make an informed decision. To start you off, here are a few quick suggestions:

Where to bet on asian handicaps
  • Ladbrokes A long-time mainstay in this industry, Ladbrokes offers a wide range of possibilities and a reliable service.
  • 888Sport Another great bookie, known for the variety of their offers and markets.
  • Bwin A prestigious betting site with very profitable odds and margins.

Asian Handicap Betting Variants

While the majority of this betting tutorial was spent discussing Asian Handicaps in regards to the classic Win-Draw-Win, you should keep in mind that many online bookmakers also allow you to apply them to other markets. Here are some Asian Handicap betting tips and strategies for these different options.

For example, modifying Over and Under markets with Asian Handicaps is a relatively popular option. The adjusted scores actually do affect the total number of goals in the Over/Under market, so you can probably see the value here. Of course, the odds will be affected as well.

Other options include Half Time betting with Asian Handicaps. These two have great synergy: A negatively handicapped favourite will have a much harder time making up the difference when they only have half the time. Additionally, the odds adjustment is usually not halved as many assume it would be, making Half Time Asian Handicaps a gold mine in terms of value.

There are many other possible combinations, for which we recommend reading through BettingFellow’s guides and combining them with this one.

Asian Handicap Betting Verdict

If value betting is one of your ultimate goals, what you’ve learned here will be incredibly useful. Don’t be afraid to experiment, because at the end of the day – that’s what Asian Handicaps are all about.Hopefully, you’ve learned all you need to know to get started with Asian Handicap betting.
