Huddersfield Town - Queens Park Rangers

Huddersfield Town have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Queens Park Rangers. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

Queens Park Rangers are regarded as favourites, but that doesn’t mean they can relax. With an almost negligible difference in the perceived strength of these two teams, sub-standard play is a recipe for disaster.

Fortuna Sittard - Sparta Rotterdam

Though the match can honestly go either way, Fortuna Sittard will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 2.75 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

The visitors are aware of the challenge that awaits them. To come out on top against Fortuna Sittard on their own field would be a major achievement, and it is always a tough task.

Marítimo - Porto

There is a big reason why Marítimo are given 13.00 to win this game. They stand little to no chance emerging victorious against Porto and anything but their defeat would be considered a miracle.

Most bookies and expert opinions agree that Porto should record a decisive victory here. It’s a fairly one-sided matchup overall, and they are hard favourites despite playing as the away team.

Celtic - Livingston

With the betting odds being what they are, an Livingston win or even a draw would be incredibly surprising. Celtic are very hard favourites and their victory seems almost inevitable.

The current perspective makes the situation straightforward. Given the superiority of Celtic and the 26.00 odds given to Livingston to win, it is evident that a victory for the visiting team would be a shocking surprise.

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

The visitors are aware of the challenge that awaits them. To come out on top against Kilmarnock on their own field would be a major achievement, and it is always a tough task.

Olympique Lyonnais - Brest

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.55 bring great value considering the fact that Olympique Lyonnais are indeed firm favourites to defeat Brest.

The current perspective makes the situation crystal clear. Given the superiority of Olympique Lyonnais and the 6.00 odds given to Brest to win, it is evident that anything but a home win would be an incredible shock.

Montpellier - Paris Saint Germain

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 9.70 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for Montpellier to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

Paris Saint Germain seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.32, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

Famalicão - Estoril

Famalicão are definitely more likely to win, though all three possible results are quite reasonable to expect. This makes it hard to make reliable betting predictions when this match is concerned, though we may find some betting value.

Estoril will have little to hope for in this match. 3.75 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.

Real Valladolid - Valencia

Though the match can honestly go either way, Real Valladolid will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 3.25 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

2.40 on an away match is what many punters run away from but Valencia are a team capable of big things. Therefore, backing them in this match might not be a bad idea after all.

Although Valladolid are coming on the back of a harsh 3:0 loss, it would be rather unfair to judge th... read more

Schalke 04 - Köln

Schalke 04 are considerably weaker than their opponents in this round of the Bundesliga, and a victory for them would be quite a surprise. We wouldn’t bet on it, though – at odds of 3.90, it’s not very likely to happen.

Köln have their work cut out for them this Sunday. 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.

Boavista - Portimonense

Though Boavista 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.

Portimonense will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.50 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

West Bromwich Albion - Wigan Athletic

If you’re looking for a relatively safe result bet, a home win at odds of 1.58 is a solid option. That said, Wigan Athletic may yet be able to pull off a surprise, maybe even in the form of a stalemate.

Considering what they’re up against, Wigan Athletic can’t set their ambitions too high in this match. Playing as visitors at odds of 6.50 for an away win, calling them underdogs seems like an understatement.

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

Despite playing away, SC Heerenveen 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 2.38, we’re in for a close game.

FC Utrecht 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 1.41, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

From the present standpoint, the situation is clear as day. Considering the strength of FC Utrecht and the 7.80 odds given to Excelsior to win, it is easy to conclude that a victory for the visiting team would be a surprising upset.

Paços de Ferreira are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 7.00, no punter will dare backing them up against Sporting Braga. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

    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.
