Västerås SK - Brommapojkarna

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Brommapojkarna can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

The visitors are conscious of the challenge before them. To come out on top against Västerås SK on their home field would be a noteworthy accomplishment, and it is never an easy task.

TBC - TBC

Though TBC are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

Given their reputation for perseverance, we expect TBC to give their best effort in this match.

The hosts’ previous match at the offered a strong performance, ending in a 3:1 home win. Most online bookmakers and betting predictions saw such a score coming, of course,... read more

Zenit - Rostov

Rostov will have little to hope for against Zenit. The home charges are bursting with confidence and it would take a small miracle for the away team to take anything from this game.

With a price of 11.10 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Rostov will likely not fare well against Zenit. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

Valencia - Girona

Though Valencia definitely have a shot at winning this match, they’ll need to work for it. Girona are somewhat stronger, but the home-field advantage may be what the hosts need to shift the balance in their favour.

Girona should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.44 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Valencia are no pushovers.

Mallorca - Almería

A quick look at the betting odds with some of the biggest bookmakers online is enough to tell you who the favourites are. Priced at 1.58, a home win seems the obvious choice. An upset is not quite impossible, mind you, which adds a small degree of risk but is ultimately food increasing profits.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Almería stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. ... read more

Sivasspor - İstanbul Başakşehir

The visiting team knows the task they face will not be easy. Beating Sivasspor on their own turf would be a major accomplishment, and it is always a formidable challenge.

Despite playing away, İstanbul Başakşehir are more likely to win this showdown than the hosts. It’s not a done deal, of course. Considering the betting odds for an away win are set at 2.24, we’re in for a close game.

Strømsgodset - Viking

Strømsgodset will have to fight an uphill battle to win this match. They are the underdogs of the matchup – though Viking don’t have a huge advantage. Still, with the 2.70 odds on a home win, things may get a bit dicey.

From the present perspective, the situation is evident. Considering the strength of Strømsgodset and the fact that Viking are given 2.54 odds to win, it is clear t... read more

Nordsjælland - Silkeborg

It’s quite easy to predict that Nordsjælland will take the 3 points here. Though a different result is not entirely impossible, it would still be quite a notable upset.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Silkeborg stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 7.58, marking an insurmountable difference.

GAIS are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Västerås SK. The odds of 2.50 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

Athletic Bilbao - Osasuna

We don’t expect Athletic Bilbao to have any issues beating Osasuna. The hosts are largely favoured by all the top bookmakers online and 1.53 might actually be a good-value bet to consider. The visitors are not to be underestimated but on this particular instance the home side are seen as clear winners.

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 Standard Liège are still on the table.

The visitors are well aware of the challenge ahead of them. To defeat OH Leuven on their home field would be a significant achievement, and it is never an easy undertaking.

Monaco - Clermont

Clermont will have little to hope for against Monaco. The home charges are bursting with confidence and it would take a small miracle for the away team to take anything from this game.

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Clermont fans are expecting them to triumph at Monaco this Saturday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have no problems steamrolling their opponents.

Blau-Weiß Linz are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Wattens. The odds of 2.26 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

It’s highly unlikely that Wattens will manage to get some points this round. Blau-Weiß Linz are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the vi... read more

Mainz 05 - Köln

It’s easy to point out Mainz 05 as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Köln are given 6.23<... read more

With 2.33 on home win, the ground is level and three points are everyone’s to take. However, we’d still recommend backing Estoril who should end up victorious in the end against Famalicão.

Famalicão are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at read more

Odd - Viking

Odd may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Viking. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 3.12 for the hosts to win.

A difficult match is ahead of Viking. They have a big fish to fry but we’ve seen them do it in the past and it’s certain they can do it again.

    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.
