The difference between European and Asian Handicaps in sports betting is a frequently asked question that punters want to know the answer to. In this article we’ll explore the key details behind both.

European Handicap

To start with European Handicaps, and while it sounds confusing and difficult to understand at first, once you’ve come to terms with it, it’s actually fairly straightforward. Also known as the three-way handicap and typically used in football betting, this market allows you to bet on three possible outcomes. You can handicap the home or away side, negatively or positively, and go for the draw.

If you select the team you believe will win on a -1 handicap, this means they have to win by two goals or more for you to win. Often the draw will begin with one team at say -1 and the other at +1, which means the favourite has a deficit of one goal to begin with. So if they win 1-0, it’s a draw, but if they win by two or more goals, the favourite wins. So essential the other team wins if they win or draw.

Although it appears a bit tricky and hard to navigate, with plenty of practice and patience you’ll be well on your way to mastering this market.

Asian Handicap

Moving onto Asian Handicaps, and this format of wagering essentially aims at eliminating the draw so there can be only two possible outcomes by giving one team a head start and one team a deficit. You can find the best offers on the Asian Handicap market at Vodds providing access to bookmakers as SingBet, Maxbet, Pinnacle, Sbobet etc. through one single account:

The lines offered are typically decimal numbers like -0.5, +0.5, -1.5, +1.5, -2.5 and +2.5, with these half goal handicaps frequently used along with quarter goal handicaps.

Whole goals markets are also available such as -1, +1, -2 and +2. In there cases if you select a -1, your team is required to win by two goals or more for you to win. But if they only win by one, it’s called a push and you get your stake refunded.
