The premise of the handicap bet is simple: the bookmakers consider one team to be so likely to win the match that they give them a handicap.  By giving the expected winner a -1, it means that if they win 1-0, their goal is subtracted, leaving them with a draw.  So an odds on favourite can be at evens with a handicap, for example.  The other way of doing things is to add or subtract half points from scores.  This means that there can be no draw in the results of the betting: it’s not really possible to score half a goal, after all.


What Asian handicap betting gives you is better odds if you’re certain your pick is going to completely thrash the opposition.  While, in some cases, the odds are going to be crazy (any game involving San Marino, for instance), most of the time you can find a favourable change in the odds.  How it differs from predicting the score, however, is that it can be any combination after the handicap has been removed.
