Asian Handicap betting began in Indonesia in the 1990s.  Culturally, local bookies understood that the public preferred the elimination of the draw and Asian Handicaps accomplish this.  In removing the draw and adding a manner of handicap, the odds applied to both available selections tend to be relatively even.

Asian Handicap betting involves your selection either giving or receiving an “X ball start” where X is a number from zero, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2.0 or 2.5 and the term ‘ball’ refers to a goal.   

Asian Handicaps are also unique because they can include either one or two handicap parameters.  When you have two handicap parameters against which the result will be measured, there are actually three potential outcomes for you: 1) You can win 100% of your bet, 2) you can win 50% of your bet and have the other 50% stake refunded, or 3) you can lose the bet entirely.  If you select an Asian line with just one handicap parameter, you will simply either win or lose the bet.

All of the sportsbooks that are listed on this page offer a main Asian Handicap line for every match, but many also offer nearly comprehensive list of all the possible combinations of Alternate Asian Handicaps, so you have full freedom of choice for how to bet.  In other words you can select the exact handicap for how you think the match may finish.  If you think a blowout is likely, you may want the high odds that come with overcoming a 3 ball start.

Here is an explanation of how some of the Asian Handicap Line combinations would work:  (Or scroll now to the best Asian Handicap Sportsbooks)
