Asian Handicap Table

The Asian Handicap (AH) simplifies betting on football matches as it eliminates the draw. It helps to provide more interesting bets where the returns from a bet on a strong favourite is unattractive or where an underdog who could perform well is still unfancied for the win.

Ironically, the terminology and rules make it sound more complicated than it is but by referring to the Asian handicap table below it’s easy to check what your returns will be.
