What Is an ‘Asian Handicap’?
“AH“, short for ‘Asian Handicap‘, is a type of sports betting in which a point spread is used to even out the chances of either team winning or losing.
- A bettor is looking at a match between Manchester United and Chelsea with Manchester United as the slight favorite.
- The bettor can choose to place an Asian Handicap bet on the match, which would involve the bettor selecting a handicap of half a goal (-0.5).
- If Manchester United wins the match, the bettor wins the bet. If the match is a draw, the bettor would receive half of their stake back.
