AS Eupen - Standard Liège

AS Eupen will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Standard Liège. The price of 2.70 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

While Standard Liège may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 2.63 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

St. Johnstone - Dundee

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.

Dundee 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 3.50 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Gent - KV Oostende

Gent 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 1.48, which is quite in line with most expert opinions.

This one has Home Win written all over it. The hosts are expected to grab a firm hold of the proceedings and KV Oostende will be left with slim pickings in this match.

Real Madrid - Elche

With top online bookmakers pricing a home win at odds of 1.17, it’s hard to expect anything other than a decisive Real Madrid victory. It’s a uniquely one-sided match – which rarely translates to a lot of excitement in the pitch.

If betting odds are anything to go on – and they are - Elche 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.

RB Leipzig - Wolfsburg

We don’t expect RB Leipzig to have any issues beating Wolfsburg. 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.

With a price of 6.50 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Wolfsburg will likely not fare well against Team from Leipzig. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for ... read more

Inter - Venezia

Top bookmakers online have made Inter overwhelming favourites in this match and judging by the available odds it’s hard to see past a comprehensive home win here.

Venezia stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 26.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

The home team are here on the back of an unremarkable HT/FT draw at Atalanta. Such a result was a disappointment because most online bo... read more

Lille - Lorient

Punters who are looking for a safe bet should definitely consider this match. The home win odds of 1.53 bring great value considering the fact that Lille are indeed firm favourites to defeat Lorient.

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

Cádiz - Espanyol

Cádiz have a big mountain to climb. The task ahead is difficult but not impossible but with 3.45 slapped on home win in this match, this one is for the risk-takers.

A difficult match is ahead of Espanyol. 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.

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.

Hibernian stand next to no chance at beating the hosts in this match. For instance, most bookies online offer odds of 10.00 for an away win, indicating a very small chance of success.

FC Utrecht - Ajax

To call the upcoming match difficult for FC Utrecht would be a major understatement. They are going up against impossible odds. With a home win priced at 6.75 with major online bookmakers, this is a completely one-sided game.

Ajax seem to be on their way to another easy victory and 3 more points to the tally. Priced at 1.48, the odds favour them heavily, so any outcome other than an away win is not exactly a safe choice.

AS Eupen - Cercle Brugge

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.30. AS Eupen will indeed find it very hard to beat Cercle Brugge here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Cercle Brugge 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.

Lorient - Angers SCO

Though Lorient 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.

Angers SCO will need to dig deep in order to get past the motivated hosts. An away win at 3.10 betting odds is considered a high risk but that’s exactly why the reward would be much sweeter.

Though Olympique Marseille 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.

Lille 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.

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

With a price of 8.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Marítimo will likely not fare well against Sporting Braga. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.10. Aston Villa will indeed find it very hard to beat Manchester United here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Manchester Utd should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.45 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Villans are no pushovers.

Genoa - Spezia

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

While Spezia may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 3.30 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

Hellas Verona - Salernitana

Most fans are expecting nothing short of a decisive victory for Hellas Verona. Though an upset is not impossible, it’s extremely unlikely that this match will end in anything that’s not a home win.

The situation is crystal clear from the current perspective. Given the strength of the home team and the fact Salernitana are given 8.25 betting odds to win, a conclusion is not difficult to reach. Anything but a home win would be an incredible surprise.

    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.
