When making sports bets, the player can choose different modalities depending on their interests. One of the most popular modalities in recent times is the Asian handicap. A priori it can be a complex term, however, nothing is further from the truth. As its name suggests, this modality comes from the Asian betting market.
The Asian handicap is used mainly in soccer. Bettors who opt for this Asian modality should know that the possibility of a tie is totally ruled out. It is common for a soccer game to end in a draw. With the Asian handicap, the bookmakers give an initial goal advantage or disadvantage to one of the opposing teams to balance the match.
Here are some examples of what happens when the bettor decides to bet using this method.
