Asian Handicaps

Asian Handicap Football Betting

This will be a very popular World Cup betting market in that there will be many games where there are two teams of very different strengths and many punters will play the Asian handicap.

The Asian Handicap is a market where a handicap is applied to the match in order to make the prices more equal. The handicap line varies from Scratch, (0, also called Level Ball) up to any number of goals in order to balance the odds and give each of the two team's relatively similar price.

The favourite in a match will have a negative handicap represented with a (-) symbol and will have to win by more goals than the handicap in order to be a winner. The outsider in the match will receive a positive handicap represented with a (+) symbol which will be added to the final score.
