Asian handicap betting
Designation: team A -0.5 / team A -1.5, etc. Or team B +0.5 / team B +1.5 / etc.
There are two different options for the semi-Asian handicap at https://footballbettingguide.co.ke/. They are marked -0.5 or +0.5. This results in a bet with only two different possible outcomes. Because, as you know, you can't score half a goal. A value of 0.5 means (half) the number of goals that are added or subtracted from the actual score.
Example 1: Tipster bets AHC -0.5 for team A.
If team A wins by one goal, the bet is won.
If the game ends in a draw, the bet is considered lost. Likewise, if team A loses -0.5, it loses again.
Example 2: Tipper bets on AHC +1.5 for team B.
If team A wins by one goal, the bet is won (since B fictitiously has half a goal ahead).
If Team A wins by 2 or more goals, the bet is lost.
If the game ends in a draw, the bet is also won, as if the team left the field as the winner.
Designation: Command A -0.5, -1 / Command A -1.5, -2, etc. or Team B +0.5, +1.0 / etc. or +1.5, +2
An AHC of 0.5, 1 (or 0.75) is best suited for a soccer match in Betting in Kenya, where one of the two teams is clearly preferred. As with the AHC quarter, the two bets are mostly played again.
Example 1: Tipster bets AHC -0.5, -1 for team A.
If Team A wins 2-0, the bet is won as Team B's virtual advantage has been exceeded.
But if A wins the game with only one goal difference, then it is still a win, since the first bet is lost.
If team A draws or loses, the bet is completely lost.
Example 2: Tipster bets on AHC +0.5, +1 for team B.
If Team B wins or draws, the bet is considered a wager, as the fictitious advantage is added to the actual result.
If you lose by one goal difference, you will lose one bet and win the other. So this was a zero-sum game.
Designation: Team A -1 or Team B +1 / Team A -2 or Team B +2, etc.
In this form of Asian Handicap betting, there is a chance of a tie in the outcome of the bet. Full Asian Handicap - or AHC 1 - a common online bookmaker and a widespread handicap bet. The advantage of this type of AHC bet: in case of a tie, the bet is refunded!
Example: Tipster bets AHC -1 for team A.
If team A wins this game by two goals, the bet is won.
But if A only wins 1: 0, 2: 1, 3: 2, etc., then because of the fictitious deficit, a draw occurs - and thus the bet is returned.
If team A only draws or even loses, in both cases the bet is lost.
