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.

The latest Asian Handicap predictions

27/06/2022

Sirius - IFK Göteborg

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Sirius will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to IFK Göteborg.

The visitors are not walking into an easy match by any means, but they should be able to come out on top. Winning this match will be a welcome boost to their rankings, though such an outcome is priced at 2.40.

Djurgården - Varberg BoIS

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Djurgården. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a 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 Varberg BoIS, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 8.55.

The last round was a fairly uneventful affair for both Djurgården... read more

Burnley - Newcastle United

Burnley 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.

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.

The host are coming o... read more

22/05/2022

Chelsea - Watford

This match itself isn’t likely to be much of a contest. The hosts are an overwhelmingly stronger team, and most bookmakers and experts agree that Watford don’t stand much of a chance.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact The Hornets are given 20.00 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

The hosts made a mess of their most re... read more

Norwich City - Tottenham Hotspur

The most probable outcome of this match is Norwich City getting completely overwhelmed. They are underdogs by a considerable margin, and it’s not likely even the most optimistic of their fans are expecting them to pull off a victory.

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to win this match, which is made quite clear by the 1.24 odds that can be found with most bookies. The odds are not so short as to make an Away Win bet not worth taking, though, which also implies a certain degree of risk... read more

Strømsgodset - Vålerenga

Strømsgodset may come out on top this Sunday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Vålerenga. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.55 for the hosts to win.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating Strømsgodset is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Vålerenga.

Union Saint-Gilloise - Antwerp

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 1.52, 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.

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Antwerp fans are expecting them to triumph at Union Saint-Gilloise this Sunday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have... read more

Nottingham Forest - Sheffield United

Though Nottingham Forest 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.

Sheffield United are not a team that backs down from a challenge and we expect them to give their best in an effort to claim a victory in this match.

Monaco - Brest

Monaco are seen as favourites to win this match against Brest. The betting odds indicate an easy win and anything but a home victory here would indeed be a big surprise.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Brest will likely get overrun by their opponents with little hope of winning. Considering how one-sided this matchup is, they may want to cut their losses and focus their energy elsewhere.

Strasbourg - Clermont

This match is somewhat one-sided, but not the most imbalanced clash we’ve seen. The odds are heavily in the hosts’ favour, who will likely walk away with 3 more points to the tally.

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

Celtic - Motherwell

This match itself isn’t likely to be much of a contest. The hosts are an overwhelmingly stronger team, and most bookmakers and experts agree that Motherwell don’t stand much of a chance.

Motherwell are massive underdogs and will be extremely lucky to avoid complete annihilation at the hands of Celtic.

The draw Celtic recorded in the previous round can be considered quite a failure on their end. Most bookmakers priced an away win for them at 17.00, making them the clear favo... read more

Marítimo - Portimonense

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.

Portimonense are not a team that backs down from a challenge and we expect them to give their best in an effort to claim a victory in this match.

PSV - NEC

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

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

St. Mirren - Livingston

Livingston will give St. Mirren a run for their money and there is no doubt about it. However, at 2.50 odds on home win in this match, we still recommend backing the hosts.

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.

St. Mirren are here on the back of outstanding performance in the previous round. A... read more

Molde - Odd

With the odds set at 1.40 for a home win, Molde 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.

With a price of 7.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Odd will likely not fare well against Molde. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

Molde supporters are not too happy with the way the team fumbled an excellent opportunity t... read more

Though Altay 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.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, Giresunspor would need to play their best to have a hope of winning. That said, even a draw would be a positive outcome, and all three results are quite possible.

Eintracht Frankfurt - Borussia M'gladbach

Eintracht Frankfurt 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.

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

Strømsgodset - Rosenborg

Strømsgodset will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Rosenborg. The price of 3.10 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

Rosenborg 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.

    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.
