Asian Handicap

Asian handicap is a style of betting where, in order to offer a more level betting environment, the bookmaker handicaps the two teams in a game before it starts. Using football as an example, the bookmaker gives a goals deficit to the team he thinks is more likely to win, and a head start to the team he thinks is less likely to win. The handicaps are expressed in goals, or fractions of goals. To win a bet, rather than backing a team to win, the customer bets on it to overcome the handicap.

In the event above, AS Roma is considered to be the Favourite and so receives a handicap of -0/0.5 before kick-off.

Favourite = AS Roma (-0/0.5)

Underdog =Basel (+0/0.5)
