Asian Handicap
Introduction to Asian Handicap (AH)
AH is the most popular way of betting in Asia which is mainly used for soccer matches. The main difference from traditional betting is that here we have only two possibilities to win - Favourite and Underdog (Outsider). In some manuals and explanations for AH it is stated that there is no draw option or the draw is eliminated. Actually this is not really true because we can win if the match is draw and of course we can lose on a draw if we bet on the Favourite. There is a third option - to be a draw with the bookie. In that case our bet is a Push (Tie) and our stake is refunded.
The main advantage of this market is that the margin (spread) in the biggest Asian bookmakers is about 1-3% (4-12 spread points). Normal 1x2 betting spreads are about 8-12% (sometimes in local shops they can be 15 - 20%). What does this mean? It means that if all bets on one specific match are proportional the bookie will make winnings equal to ( if the spread is 2%) 2% from all bets. This is the way that they win - no matter what the result of the match.

AH in example
Every match has a different AH Line (It is possible to have 2 or 3 lines on one single match). One line can be shown in different ways. For example:
 
Home Away H Odd AH Line A Odd
Everton Liverpool 2.00 1/4:0 1.90
Everton Liverpool 2.00 0.25:0 1.90
Everton Liverpool 2.00 0/0.5:0 1.90
Everton Liverpool 2.00 1/4 1.90
Everton Liverpool 2.00 0.25 1.90
Everton Liverpool 2.00 0/0.5 1.90
 
Home AH Line Away H Odd AH Line A Odd
Everton 1/4:0 Liverpool 2.00 1/4:0 1.90
Everton 0.25:0 Liverpool 2.00 0.25:0 1.90
Everton 0/0.5:0 Liverpool 2.00 0/0.5:0 1.90
Everton 1/4 Liverpool 2.00 1/4 1.90
Everton 0.25 Liverpool 2.00 0.25 1.90
Everton 0/0.5 Liverpool 2.00 0/0.5 1.90
 
All lines in the tables are the same as the others.
Soccer Predictions | Football Predictions - The Soccer Predictions | Football Predictions team
Away - Visitor's team
H Odd - The Soccer Predictions | Football Predictions team odd to bet on
A Odd - The away team odd to bet on
AH Line - The advantage in goals given to the team

In this situation the favourite team is Liverpool. That's why it is in Red. The outsider is Everton. The advantage is a quarter goal added for Everton (1/4, 0.25, 0/0.5, +1/4, +0.25, +0/0.5). This is the same as a quarter goal to be substracted from total goals for Liverpool (The favourite) So, what if we bet on the underdog or for the favourite:

   If we bet on the underdog (Everton) +1/4 at 2.00
         Everton Win: We win the bet with the full stake at an odd 2.00
         Match Draw: We win with a half of our stake at an odd 2.00 and the other half of the stake will be returned
         Liverpool Win: We lose the whole stake
   If we bet on the favourite (Liverpool) -1/4 at 1.90
         Liverpool Win: We win the bet with the full stake at an odd 1.90
         Match Draw: We lose with a half of our stake and the other half of the stake will be returned
         Everton Win: We lose the whole stake

Every possibility will be explained in more detail below.
