Asian odds explained - part three - handicap by handicap

By Admin on August 20, 2012 in Asian Handicap, Betting Guide

In this article we present tables aimed at explaining asian odds in general. We also give you concrete examples and thorough explanations. We will be attempting to break down Asian handicaps so that the novice bettor can start enjoying the benefits of Asian odds betting right away. We recommend you to read our Asian handicap basics article before you read this one. It will help you to intuitively grasp the content presented in this article much better.

Asian odds - Draw no bet

This is presented either as (0) or DNB. It means no team is given a head start or penalized with a handicap

This is referred to as Draw no bet (DNB) or levelball. We have covered it in our Draw no bet Asian odds betting guide and urge you to read it for more information on the topic.

The essence of DNB that you need to understand is that you win if your pick wins. Then you get paid the odds offered x the wagered amount. For the net win; just subtract the stake from the gross win and you got it.

If your pick loses then you lose your stake. If your pick draws the given match your stake is refunded. It is refunded because the betting offer reflects that your total wagered stake includes covering up your stake on the pick with a certain amount on the draw.

Asian odds 0.25

This is presented either as -0.25 or +0.25, quarter ball, 0-0.5 or 0:1/4. It means one team is given a quarter ball start and the other team is given a quarter ball handicap. You can also say one team is given a quarter goal head start and the other a quarter goal handicap.

This is a double Asian handicap odds variant. We have explained more about what that is in our Asian odds explained part two article.

+ 0.25 Asian odds example

What you need to know is that if you bet €100 euro on Newcastle +0.25 at home against Manchester United in the Premier League and they win, then you win. So far so good, this is simple.

Your gross win would be stake x offered odds, and your net win would be the gross win minus the stake. If your offered odds were 1.95, then you would have won €195 gross and €95 net. Very simple, isn't it?

This might be a little bit more complicated if you are a novice, but try to get your head around it. If the bet is a draw then half your stake is returned to you. The other half is multiplied with the offered odds and paid to you. In our example that would yield a return of €147.50. (Work through the math please)

- 0.25 Asian odds example

If you bet Manchester United -0.25 versus Newcastle you would win if Man U went ahead and won the game. Then your bet, say £100 would be multiplied with the odds, say 1.90 for a £190 gross win (£90 net win). If Manchester United were to lose, then your stake would be lost in full.

If the outcome of the game would be a draw, then half your stake would be lost. The other half would be refunded to you. To simplify it: imagine that you covered up half the stake on the draw option. This cover up on the draw is reflected in the odds you took initially.

Asian odds 0.50

This is presented either as -0.5/+0.5 or 0:1/2 (half ball). It means one team is given a half ball start and the other team is given a half ball handicap.

This is a single Asian handicap variant, and it is quite easy to understand intuitively. In our examples; imagine you have wagered $20 at odds 1.90. We use Bayern Munich -0.5 at home versus Dortmund +0.5 as the example game. This game is obviously taken from the German Bundesliga.

- 0.50 Asian odds example

If you bet Bayern -0.5 at 1.90 and they win then they must win for your bet to make you richer. If they do go ahead and win you get paid stake x odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If the game is a draw or Bayern lose your stake is won by the bookmaker and you got to go back to the drawing board empty handed.

+ 0.50 Asian odds example

If you bet Dortmund away +0.5 at 1.90 you win if Dortmund defeat Bayern, and also if the game ends a draw. Then you get paid stake x odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If Dortmund loses, you lose.

Asian odds 0.75

This is presented either as -0.75 or +1.25, three quarter goal handicap or 0:3/4. It means one team is given a three quarter ball start and the other team is given a three quarter ball handicap.

This is a double Asian handicap variant. In our examples you have wagered £20 at odds 1.90. We use international soccer for our match example. Spain -0.75 at home versus Denmark +0.75 is the betting offer.

- 0.75 Asian odds example

You picked Spain to win. Should Spain win with two goals or more you get paid the stake x the offered odds = £20 x 1.90 = £38 gross and £18 net. Nothing fancy here. You just got to remember the 2 goals or more cushion needed in order for you to win your bet. If Spain loses the game. Obviously, you lose too. If the game results in a draw this is a loser for you as well.

This might be a little bit more complicated if you are a novice, but we'll try to break it down for you: If Spain win with one goal then half your stake is returned to you. The other half is multiplied with the offered odds and paid to you. In our example that would yield a gross win of £29. (Work through the math please, it will help you get the hang of it)

+ 0.75 Asian odds example

If you bet Denmark +0.75 you are a winner if Denmark win the game or manage a draw. Then you would get paid the stake x the offered odds = £20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net.

If the outcome of the game would be a Spanish one goal win, then half your stake would be lost. The other half would be refunded to you. To simplify it; imagine that you covered up half the stake on the Danish bet with a Spain to win by one goal hedge. This cover up bet is reflected in the odds you took initially.

Asian odds -1/+1

This is presented either as -1 or +1, full ball or 0:1. It means one team is given a full ball (or one goal if you like) head start and the other team is given a full ball (or one goal) handicap.

This is a single Asian handicap variant. In our examples you have wagered $20 at odds 1.90. We use international soccer for our match example again. This time Argentina -1 at home versus Colombia +1 is the betting offer.

- 1 Asian odds example

You picked Argentina to win. Should Argentina win with two goals or more you get paid the stake x the offered odds = £20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. Nothing fancy this time around either. You just got to remember the 2 goals or more cushion needed in order for you to win your bet. If Argentina loses the game, then you lose as well. If the game ends a draw, then this is a loser for you as well unfortunately.

If the game ends exactly with a one goal win to Argentina, your stake is refunded. Again, look at the bet from the angle that you cover your betting pick for this exact possibility.

+ 1 Asian odds example

If you bet Colombia +1 you are a winner if Colombia win the game or squeeze out a draw. Then you would get paid the stake x the offered odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If Argentina were to win with two goals or more you would have to go to the loser lounge and have a cup of tea with two spoons of shame.

If the outcome of the game would be an Argentinian one goal win, then your stake would be refunded to you. To simplify: imagine that you covered up your Colombia position for this exact outcome. This amount needed to cover up your bet pick is reflected in the odds you took initially.

Asian odds 1.25

This is presented either as -1.25 or +1.25, one and a quarter ball, 0:1/4 or 1-1.5. It means one team is given a one and a quarter ball head start and the other team is given a one and a quarter ball handicap.

This is a double Asian handicap variant. In our examples you have wagered £20 at odds 1.90. We use Premier League betting for our match example. This time Manchester City -1.25 at home versus Everton +1.25 is the betting offer discussed.

- 1.25 Asian odds example

You picked Manchester City to win. Should City win with two goals or more you get paid the stake x the offered odds = £20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. Again, you just got to remember the 2 goals or more cushion needed in order for you to win your bet. If City loses the game. Obviously, you lose too. If the game results in a draw you lose as well.

If Manchester City wins by one goal then half your stake is returned to you. The other half is lost forever. Yet again; see this as a variant of covering (hedging) your City to bet win by two or more bet for the situation where City win, but only by one goal.

+ 1.25 Asian odds example

You took Sunderland. If you bet Sunderland +1.25 you are a winner if they win the game or manage a draw. Then you would get paid the stake x the offered odds = £20 x 1.90 = £38 gross and £18 net.

If the outcome of the game would be a City one goal win, then half your stake would be refunded. The other half would be multiplied with the odds offered and paid to you. Working through the math you see that £10 is refunded. £10 is multiplied by 1.90 = £19. In total you get back £29.

Asian odds 1.5

This is presented either as -1.5 or +1.5, one and a half ball or 0:1/2. It means one team is given one and a half ball start and the other team is given a one and a half ball handicap, or if you prefer one and a half goal handicap.

This is a single Asian handicap variant, and it is quite easy to understand intuitively. In our examples; imagine you have wagered $20 at odds 1.90. We use Russian soccer this time for our example. CSKA Moscow -1.5 at home versus FK Rostov +1.5 is the example game.

- 1.50 Asian odds example

If you bet CSKA -1.5 at 1.90 they must win with two goals or more in order for your bet to make you wealthier. If they do go ahead and win with a goal superiority of 2+ you get paid the stake x odds on offer = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If the game ends with a CSKA one goal win, a draw or a CSKA loss your stake is raked in by the bookmaker.

+ 1.50 Asian odds example

If you bet FK Rostov away +1.5 at 1.90 you win if they defeat the mighty CSKA. You also win if the game ends a draw or if Rostov loses by only one goal. Should that be the case you get paid the stake x odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If Rostov loses by two goals or more, you lose.

Asian odds 1.75

This is presented either as -1.75/+1.75, or one and three quarter ball. It means one team is given a one and three quarter ball head start and the other team is given a three quarter ball handicap.

This is a double asian handicap variant. In our examples you have wagered €20 at odds 1.90. We use international soccer for our match example. Spain -1.75 at home versus Norway +1.75 is the betting offer.

- 1.75 Asian odds example

You picked Spain to win. Should Spain win with three goals or more you get paid the stake x the offered odds = €20 x 1.90 = €38 gross and €18 net. If Spain loses the game, draw the game or only win it with one goal, then you lose.

This might be a little bit more complicated if you are a novice, but we'll try to break it down for you: If Spain win with exactly two goals, then half of the stake is refunded. The other half of the stake is multiplied with the offered odds and paid to you. In our example that would yield a gross win of €29. Again we urge you to work out the math, just to drill this concept home. Once you get the hang of it you'll find it as easy as 1-2-3.

+ 1.75 Asian odds example

If you bet Norway +1.75 you are a winner if they win the game, manage a draw or lose only by one goal. If that would become reality you would get paid the stake x the offered odds = €20 x 1.90 = €38 gross and €18 net.

If the outcome of the game would be a Spanish two goal win, then half your stake would be lost. The other half would be refunded to you. To simplify it; imagine that you covered up half the stake on the Norwegian bet with a Spanish two goals win hedge. This cover up bet is reflected in the odds you took initially.

Asian odds -2/+2

This is presented either as -2/+2, two full balls or 0:2. It means one team is given two full balls (or a two goal head start if you like). The other team is given two full balls (or a two goal handicap).

This is a single Asian handicap variant. In our examples you have wagered $20 at odds 1.90. We use international soccer for our match example again. This time Germany -2 at home versus Iceland +2 is the betting offer.

- 2 Asian odds example

You picked Germany to win. Should Germany win with three goals or more you get paid the stake x the offered odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. Nothing fancy here either. You just got to remember the 3 goals or more cushion needed in order for you to win your bet. If Germany lose the game, draw the game or win it only by one goal, you lose.

If the game ends exactly with a two goal win for Germany, your stake is refunded. Again, look at the bet from the angle that you hedge your German to win by 2+ betting pick for the exact possibility of a two goal win for the Germans.

+ 2 Asian odds example

If you bet Iceland +2 you are a winner if they win the game, draw the game or even lose by one goal. Should that happen you would get paid the stake x the offered odds = $20 x 1.90 = $38 gross and $18 net. If Germany were to win with three goals or more you would have to wave the white flag and take your loss like a boss.

If the outcome of the game would be a German two goal win, then your stake would be refunded to you. To simplify it; imagine that you covered up your Germany to win by three or more position for the exact possibility they only win by two. The amount needed to hedge your bet for the 2 goal win outcome is reflected in the odds you took initially.

Final note

We could keep going on presenting the scenarios where +/-2.25, +/-2.50,+/-2.75,+/-3 etc would be used. However; we would be repeating ourselves. The processes to work out those odds are the exact same ones as presented here. We recommend you to read the Howtobet.net online betting guide articles and the how to bet on sports guides for more honest and accurate information on sports betting. Your wallet may end up thanking you for taking time to do so. Until the next article, the best of luck!!!
