What is a handicap?

Handicap is one of the ways to place a sports bet that works perfectly in case when there is a big gap between teams' skills. Basically, there are two variants of type of bets: european and asian ones. Both of them are present on the betting plaftorm.

European handicap

This type of bets provides a weaker team with additional points (for example, scored goals) in the beginning of the game. So the underdog starts a match with allegedly higher result, that only makes sense for betting, since in real life the weaker team doesn't have any benefits. Thus, handicap allows to make the rivalry more intense so that betting gets more exciting.

European handicap is usually depicted as a number or a fraction with a plus or a minus. That means, if you see a "+1" note referring to the team's name, it gets an imaginary additional goal. In this case, if the team is actually one goal behind, for those who placed such a handicap bet it will count as a draw. Such a principle can is applied to other outcomes as well.

Asian handicap

Although this kind of bets has some common traits with its previous variation, they are quite different. Asian handicap includes bets on two outcomes simultaneously. This is reflected in a way asian handicap bets are depicted, namely, as quarnery fractions. One of the bets can be defined by adding 0.25 to it and another — by subtracting 0.25. Thus, if you place a bet on an team that has a 1.75 handicap value, that means you choose both outcomes where the team wins with the help of 1.5 and 2.0 additional goals. There are three possible results: either both of your bets win, or one wins and one is returned, or both lose.
