Learning about Asian handicaps

Sports betting gets its high popularity and favored position from the excitement of the games and matches and the adrenaline of wagering money and waiting to see if it turns profitable. Leaving aside the thrilling characteristic of the betting world, wagering is not a very difficult process, but neither it is a very simple one. There are a lot of features and aspects one has to get acquainted with and learn before jumping ahead and risk losing significant amount of money. For that reason, many passionate bettors resort to online betting guides that provide comprehensive lessons on hoe to bet over the Internet, how to bet on one sport or another, how to read money lines and odds and the list can go on. There are many opportunities granted by this dynamic field, but also many options and choices to be made, which is why having deep knowledge about the betting environment is important. One of the most discussed and inquired issue is regarding the several types of odds, especially the Asian handicaps, which have been growing in popularity more and more recently. Many online betting guides and manuals or forums are focusing on explaining bettors, especially the novice ones, what an Asian handicap is and how you can benefit from such a system.

The Western odds system has three types of odds, their popularity depending on the location of punters. The fractional odds, for instance, are mainly used in the UK, while the rest of the Europeans prefer the decimal odds systems. The Americans have their own system, called American odds, which uses + and – to identify the underdog and the favorite team. The Asian handicaps are an excellent alternative to the Western concept and many punters prefer it because it involves a lower level of risk. For a long time, gambling of any kind was not allowed on the Asian continent, so there was no need for an odds calculus system or any other type of gambling probabilities. Hence, illegal gamblers made use of a very simple method that was based on adding a number of goals or points to the final result of a match or game, which was meant to level the chances of both sides. Therefore, the probability of the competitions, meaning the Asian handicap, became 50%, which represented an acceptable risk, even for the novice bettors, who were just starting out in this exciting and dynamic field.

However, the world has come a long way since those times and now the Asian handicap is widely sought after by both novice punters and experienced bettors. While, at the beginning, they were released as integers, noted with 0, +1, +2, -1 or -2, today Asian handicaps are divided by 0.5 or 0.25, depending on the game or the sport that they are used for and the type of scoring or results it makes use of. Therefore, on the websites of all major online bookmakers, you will encounter Asian handicaps under the form of -1.5 or +1.5. Some of the European betting guides and forums will differentiate between the odds divided by 0.5 and those divided by 0.25, which they call a double Asian handicap.

Taking everything into account, learning about the different odds systems, whether decimal, fractional, American or Asian, and understanding the ins and outs of each of them, so that you can be able to read lines and place bets on a strong knowledge basis, is crucial in the online betting process, for every punter, beginner or not.
