Asian Handicap: Practical examples:

We are going to assume that for all the examples that we are going to propose, the same conditions will be met: the quota for each possibility will be 1.90 and we will bet $ 10 on one of the two options.

We also remember that if after applying an Asian handicap the bet is tied, that bet will be canceled and we will not win or lose anything. Without further delay, we go with the examples:

Valencia -0.5 / Villarreal +0.5 suppose that in this case, we bet on Valencia -0.5. If Valencia wins your match we will win the bet, while if Villarreal draw or win we will lose our bet. Possible results:

1-0 -> Wage bet (+ $ 9) since the final result with the handicap applied would be 1-0.5 (0 + 0.5)

2-0 -> Wage bet (+ $ 9) since the final result with the handicap applied would be 2-0.5 (0 + 0.5)

1-1 -> Lost bet (-10 $). The final result with the h.a. applied would be 1-1.5 (1 + 0.5)

1-2 -> Lost bet (-10 $). The final result with the h.a. applied would be 1-2.5 (2 + 0.5)
