## 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 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.
