INTRODUCTION to ASIAN HANDICAP MARKETS

What is an Asian handicap in betting?

Asian handicap markets offer may seem complicated at first glance, but it is a pretty simple betting market type. The Asian HCP gives a virtual handicap (disadvantage or advantage) to the opposing teams, thus eliminating the chance of a draw in the match.

ASIAN HANDICAP -0.25 / 0.25

Here the underdog team is given a head start with a “quarter goal”, so the game starts with -0.25 without any draw option.

If you bet on a team to cover HCP -0.25, all that you need is for your team to win, and you will win your coupon. If there is a draw, you lose half of your stake. If your team loses the game, you lose your bet.

If betting on the other side, 0.25, a draw will give you a half win; you win your bet if your team wins and lose your bet if your team loses.

ASIAN HANDICAP -0.5 / 0.5

Here the underdog team is given a head start with a half goal, so the game starts with -0.5.

If betting on the team with HCP -0.5, your team has to win the game for you to win your bet. In any other case, you lose your money. If betting on the HCP 0.5, you need your team to win or tie to win your bet.

ASIAN HANDICAP -0.75 / 0.75

In this case the game starts with -0.75. The underdog team is given a 0.75 goal before the game starts. Draw option is eliminated.

When betting on the team with HCP -0.75, you need your team to win by 2 or more goals to win your coupon. If your team wins by one goal, you win half of your bet and get the other half back. When betting on HCP 0.75, you need your team to win or tie the game. If your team loses by one goal, you get half of your coupon back.

ASIAN HANDICAP -1.0 / 1.0

Here the game starts with -1 goal, meaning that a one goal virtual advantage is given to the underdog team.

When betting on HCP -1.0, to win your coupon you need your team to win by 2 or more goals difference. If your team wins by 1 goal, you get your money back – no wager. If the game ends in a draw or the other team wins, you lose your entire stake.

To win your coupon when betting on HCP +1.0, you need your team to win or draw. If your team loses by 1 goal, you get your money back – no wager. However, if the other team wins by 2 or more goals, you lose your bet.

ASIAN HANDICAP 0:0 (LEVEL BALL – DRAW NO BET – DNB)

There is no advantage given to any team and the game starts at 0-0.

Let’s say you bet on a team to win on the HCP 0.0 market – all that you need is your team to win, and you will win your coupon. If there is a draw, you get your stake back, but if your team loses the game, you lose your bet.

Other names for this include Draw No Bet (DNB) or level ball.
