Asian Handicap - Full, Half & Quarter Lines

Asian Handicap full/half lines

The full and half Asian lines are easiest to understand and calculate. They include any handicap that is a whole number, or ends in .5 – e.g. +1 or -0.5. The handicap value is simply added to or subtracted from the final score, and the final result determines whether you win the bet.

Asian Handicap quarter lines

The quarter lines are values ending in .25 or .75 and are a little more complex than the other handicaps. They are also called double handicaps, as they are worked out using two virtual bets and handicaps. For example, the handicap -0.25 can also be written as (0,-0.5).

 

The +2 handicap is a win, lose or refund situation.

With this handicap:

  • You win your bet if your team wins or draws.
  • You win your bet if your team loses by one goal.
  • You get your stake back if your team loses by two goals.
  • You lose your bet if your team loses by three goals or more.
