What is Asian Handicap -0.5 gambling?
Asian Handicap -0.5 (or called Hang Cheng) is a form of soccer gambling which endeavours to level up the opportunities of two teams in a match by “handicapping” the perceived superior team for gambling purposes. The perceived weaker team is provided a theoretical head beginning on which basis gambling takes place, with the benefits on the two teams brought closer all together.
There are actually two sorts of Asian Handicaps – those with a single handicap (for example –½) and those with two handicaps (for example -½, 1). The latter reflects the reality that you are absolutely placing two gambles, each worth half your deposit.
We will begin this explanation with the most straightforward handicaps, the ½ goal gambles.
Liverpool (-1/2) versus Chelsea (+1/2)
The market is written as above. This means that Chelsea, the away team, has a 1/2 goal begin over Liverpool. As Chelsea win and draw the match, the reality that they get a 1/2 goal handicap begin means that all gambles placed on Chelsea will be winners. As Liverpool win the match, then all gambles placed on Liverpool will be winners and all gambles placed on Chelsea will be losers.
Liverpool (-1½) versus Chelsea (+1½)
This market brings Chelsea a 1½ goal begin over Liverpool. As Liverpool win the match by two goals and more, then all gambles on Liverpool are winners. As Chelsea win, draw OR LOSE BY ONE GOAL, then all gambles on Chelsea are winners.
Sometimes the two teams are perceived as being actually matched. This is represented on the gamble as follows:
Liverpool (level) versus Chelsea (level)
As the match is drawn, ALL DEPOSIT WILL BE RETURNED. As Liverpool win, all gambles on Liverpool are winners. As Chelsea win, all gambles on Chelsea are winners.
The same settlement comes into effect with a one-goal gamblein Asian handicap -0.5, represented as follows:
Liverpool (-1) versus Chelsea (+1)
This market brings Chelsea a one-goal begin over Liverpool. As Chelsea win and if the game is drawn, backers of Chelsea will be winners. As Liverpool win by two goals and more, backers of Liverpool will win. As Liverpool win by truly one goal, all deposits will be returned, and all gambles are effectively avoid.
Where the handicap consists of a ½ (for example –1/2, +1½, -2½), there can be no draw outcome. Backers of one team will win whilst backers of the other team will lose.
Where the handicap consists of an entire number (for example 0, +1, -2), there can be a draw outcome, in which circumstance there is no winner and no loser, and deposits are returned. Let us now look at instance where there are two gambles. What this means is that half your deposit is placed at one gamble and half at the other.
Liverpool (-0, ½) versus Chelsea (+0, ½)
This gamble absolutely represents two gambles – half your deposit at the 0, and level, handicap and half your deposit at the ½ goal gamble. So, as you back Chelsea and the game ends in a draw, half your deposit will be returned to you in settlement of the 0, and level, gamble whilst the other half is a successful gamble at +1/2 and will be settled as a winner. For Liverpool backers, as the game ends in a draw, half their deposit will be returned at the 0, and level, handicap, whilst the other half is a loser at the –1/2 gambles.
Liverpool (-1/2, 1) versus Chelsea (+1/2, 1)
Here, your gamble will be split equally over the ½ and 1 goal gambles. So, as you back Chelsea, and Liverpool beat Chelsea by one goal, half of your deposit will be returned in settlement of the +1 goal gamble, whilst the other half is an unsuccessful gamble at +1/2 and will be settled as a loser. For Liverpool backers, as Liverpool win by one goal, half their deposit will be returned on the -1 goal gamble whilst half will be a winner on the –1/2 goal gamble.
