    The terminology in Asian Handicap is sometimes difficult to understand.

    PLease check

    ALso check and for further information.

    Basically, a handicap of -0.75 (which is equal to -3/4) means that there are actually two handicaps for this game.
    One of -1, and one of -0.5. Added together, these two handicaps becomes -0.75

    Let's take an example:

    Arsenal (-0.75) - West Ham (+0.75) odds 1.8 - 1.8

    You fancy Arsenal at these odds, and stake 100$.

    Since there is a 3/4 handicap in the game, there is really two bets, 50$ on Arsenal (-0.5), and 50$ on Arsenal (-1).

    So, if Arsenal win this game with 1 goal (1-0, 2-1, 3-2, 4-3, etc), then 1 or your bets is correct (the Arsenal -0.5 bet).
    The other bet is undecided, since Arsenal started with 1 goal handicap. Therefore you are return the stakes on this bet, but for the other bet you will win (odds*stake) (1.8*50$ = 90$)

    So you stakes initially 100$, and get 140$ back.

    Refer to the links above for more information. It takes some time to get used to, but you will soon discover the advantages with Asian Handicap (no game can end in a draw, in betting terms, as with straight 1x2 betting)

    What is Asian Handicap? What does +3/4 mean?

    As it says under the title for this section, what is AH and what does +3/4 mean?

    What's the different between normal handicap and asian? Please explain with examples.

    What does it mean when both teams have +0 goals??

    I would be glad if someone could explain this to me. I've been betting for a while but never on handicap bets, and because these bets are popular, I would like to know what it is.

    I know what normal handicaps are if for example a team has -1.5 goals, but can't understand why there's sometimes +1.25 etc.
