Among different types of handicap bets the most significant are European handicap and Asian handicap. The fresh bettors sooner or later will face these questions: “European handicap, what is this?” and “How does it differ from the Asian handicap?”
European handicap is a simple kind of a handicap bet with one exception – no return. For example, if you bet on handicap (+1) in Asian handicap and the final difference in the score is of 1 goal, your bet neither wins nor loses and the bookmaker makes bet return. But if you bet on European handicap (+1) in case of similar outcome you will lose.In point of fact, the bet on European handicap (+1) is equal to Asian handicap (+0,5), and (-1) is equal to (-1,5). There is nothing very difficult about it. All you need is to remember this difference and begin to use them in practice. It should be mentioned, that in general, the bookmakers propose bettors Asian handicap, as it is simple and predicts the bets, which can lead in future to arguments and misunderstanding. But you should be very attentive and every time you make a handicap bet, search notes for European handicap and Asian handicap. It will exclude possible mistakes and as a consequence, it will help to minimize loses. You must admit, that it would be really frustrating to lose, when you have predicted the match outcome and have made bet on a wrong handicap.
