Asian handicap tips overview
Asian spread lines let you bet on a team or an athlete to win a match with a particular handicap, and if the result is a draw after application of the handicap, you can anticipate a refund.
Takebet offers its readers to bet with an Asian spread on quite a few events in sports. For example, in football, one can bet on a team to lead by the number of goals scored, yellow cards acquired, corners awarded. In tennis, one can bet on an athlete to lead by the number of sets or games won. In basketball, Takebet predicts point spreads in a match, in a half and a quarter.
In the best Asian handicap tips of ours, all types of spreads are covered:
- Asian handicaps with 0 (Level AH)
- Asian handicaps multiple of 0.5 and 1 (Single AH)
- Asian handicaps multiple of 0.25 (Split AH)

Asian handicap predictions explained
Asian handicap betting tips imply a particular margin to be added or subtracted from the final score line for the chosen team: if afterwards the team leads the score line, then the bet wins, and if the team trails behind, then the bet loses; in case of a draw, a bettor gets refunded.
The alternative name for Asian handicap — is a 2-way handicap (two way handicap).That’s because you have two outcomes only to bet on — either one side or the other, with no draw.
The most standard handicap is offered on a team to win (e.g. on the spread of goals, points, etc). However, one can also bet on a team to lead by stats, such as corners or yellow cards.
Probably the single most popular Asian handicap option is a zero handicap, or level AH. This option is written as “AH (0.0)” or “Asian handicap (0)” plus the name of the team or the athlete you are betting on. Here you predict a team/athlete to win, while in the case of a draw your bet will be completely refunded. Hence, the odds of the level AH are lower than of a win bet in the 1x2 betting market, but are higher than the odds of the “win or draw” option (double chance).
There is an analogue of Asian handicap (0), that is called draw no bet (like in DNB predictions).
Example of a level Asian handicap: you bet on Chelsea with Asian handicap (0) to win over Arsenal. If Chelsea wins, you win. If they lose, you lose. And if they draw, you get a refund.
Two-way (2-way) handicap tips multiple of 0.5 and 1, or single AH constitute the main bulk. You can only win or lose those that are multiple of 0.5, because a draw is impossible after applying such a handicap to a final result. For example, a bet on Barcelona to win with AH (-1.5). Asian handicaps that are multiple of 1 can result in a draw after their application to a final score line. As in the previous case with AH (0), this guarantees you a refund of your stake.
Example of Asian handicap multiple of 0.5: you bet on the Boston Celtics with AH (+4.5) to win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. If the Celtics get any win, a draw or lose not more than by four points, then you win. If they lose by five points or more, then you lose.
Example of Asian handicap multiple of 1: you bet on the Boston Bruins with AH (-2) to win over the Montreal Canadiens. If the Bruins get a win with a gap of three goals or more, you win. If they get a win with a gap of exactly two goals, then you get a refund. Given any other result, your bet will lose, because the Bruins will lose after two goals are subtracted from their score.
Split AH, also known as double Asian handicap picks or quarter handicaps, are the most flexible ones. These are multiples of 0.25 and can be written down in two ways. For example, AH (-0.75) and AH (-0.5, 1) are the same, being a combo of two spreads — (-0.5) and (-1). When you wager on such a bet, a bookie splits your stake: one half on (-0.5), another on (-1).
Example of split Asian handicap (multiple of 0.25): you bet on Manchester United to win over Liverpool with AH (-0.75), odds of 2.00. To win the whole bet, you need Man United to get a victory with a gap of two or more goals. If Red Devils win with a gap of one goal, then you win only half of your stake (-0.5), and the other half (-1.0) is refunded to you. And if Manchester United play to a draw or lose this match, then your bet loses completely. Imagine that you staked $10. In the first case, you get a total payout of $20 ($10 x 2.00). In the second case, you get a total payout of $15 ($5 x 2.00 + $5). In the third case, you get nothing due to your loss.
Asian handicap accumulator betting tips
We strive to select the most valuable odds for our best free Asian handicap tips, which are provided in two forms — as singles and as accumulators. The latter are made up of two or more selections in separate sports events combined into one bet, including AH predictions and other bet types, such as 1x2, over under totals, correct scores and many more. For accumulators, betting odds can go as far as 10.00 (+900 American; 9/1 Fractional).
However, tips Asian handicap with single bets are published more often, given that their margins are more in favour of sports bettors than in accas, thus betting on singles is more efficient. Odds of single picks usually stay in the range between 1.50 (-200; 1/2) and 3.00 (+200; 2/1).
Sports and tournaments with Asian handicap picks
For sure, Asian handicap football tips for betting are not the only ones on offer on Takebet. The experts on our team also produce free Asian handicap predictions for tennis, basketball, ice hockey, American football, cricket, rugby and other sports. Read on to know more!
Asian handicap football predictions

Asian handicap tennis tips
Tennis is a sport played by individuals, sometimes almost even in their level of play and sometimes very different, like when a world top 3 player takes on a young tennis prospect. In the latter case, the odds on the favourite will be as low as the chances of the underdog to win. In both cases, free Asian handicap picks come to the rescue, helping you regulate your risk!
Tennis tournaments covered with two-way (2-way) handicap picks include:
- Australian Open
- French Open

- WTA 1000 (Premier)
- WTA 500
- WTA 250

When betting on tennis with an Asian spread, you usually bet on either on games or on sets.
Example of Asian handicap tennis betting tips: a pick for Daniil Medvedev to win with AH (-1.5) sets against Filip Krajinovic in a bo3 match, which brings you money if Medvedev wins 2-0, while you lose in any other case such as his 2-1 win or him losing the match completely.
Asian handicap basketball picks
Basketball is a game that is won by the number of points, and point margins of victories are basically what you bet on with Asian handicap basketball predictions. In basketball, especially if we talk about the NBA or American bookies, such bets may go under the name of spread bets.
Basketball tournaments covered with tips Asian handicap:
- FIBA Basketball World Cup
- Summer Olympic basketball tournament
Example of Asian handicap basketball tips: a pick for the Milwaukee Bucks to win with AH (-7.5) over the New Orleans Pelicans. In order to win the bet, you need the Bucks to win the match by eight or more points. A win by seven points or fewer and a defeat of the Bucks is a loss for you.
Asian handicap ice hockey betting tips
When you place a spread bet on ice hockey, you essentially wager on a goal margin. Like in football, Asian handicap ice hockey predictions are all about guessing a handicap of a win.
Ice hockey tournaments covered with AH predictions include:
- IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship
- Winter Olympic ice hockey tournament
Example of Asian handicap ice hockey picks: a tip on the Ottawa Senators to win with AH (+2) over the Florida Panthers. To get a victory, you need a win of the Senators with any score, or a draw, or the Panthers winning with a gap of one goal only. If the Panthers win with a two-goal lead, you get a refund. And any other win of the Panthers means a loss for you.
How experts analyse tips on Asian handicap
Any analysis we provide is based on two pillars, which are sporting statistics and betting odds. By analysing stats and other info in a certain number of matches, we derive approximate chances of possible outcomes and compare them to the odds, thus choosing the best bet.
- Team/athlete form: this has to do with the winning and losing streaks of a team in all recent matches and in the same tournament for such sports as football, basketball, ice hockey and so on. In tennis, we talk about the results of the recent matches of an athlete and his or her results on the same surface this current season. Players’ and athletes’ fitness plays a huge role as well.
- Team news: right before a game starts or slightly prior to that moment, teams release their lineups with updates on injuries and suspensions — for example, in football. This helps to know who will be available and who won’t be. Imagine the top scorer is injured — how will it affect the team’s performance? For sure, in a bad way. We account for that in our AH betting tips.
- Statistics: in-game statistics may include, for football, the number of goals/shots scored and conceded in the past few games (5-8), for basketball, teams’ shooting percentages and rebounds, for tennis, efficiency of serves and their receiving as well as double faults, aces.
- H2H record: results of the previous head-to-head fixtures are greatly important in assessing the motivation, in particular. In tennis, even a currently stronger player may lose to the one who has previously beaten him more often than not. Not to mention the recent H2H matches: in football, it is recommended to take into account head-to-heads of the current and the previous season.
Strategies for Asian handicap betting tips
The best betting strategies for Asian handicap tips are immediately ready ways of how to make a fast prediction on a game of sports. They are based on certain conditions that usually need to be met for a particular bet to become not only a viable option, but also a valuable one.
Let’s explore a couple of betting strategies for Asian handicaps which Takebet uses:
- Asian handicap (0) predictions strategy. Wager on a team with a zero handicap in the following circumstances: 1) you doubt the chosen team will get an outright win, 2) you are sure the opposing side will not win, 3) you suppose that the chances of the chosen team to win are higher than to get a draw, 4) you want odds to be higher than for a “win or draw” double chance.
- Asian handicap (+2) betting tips strategy. Place an AH (+2) bet in the following circumstances: 1) you are sure that a big underdog will not lose by more than one goal, but you want to ensure you will not lose if they lose with a two-goal difference, 2) you want a sure bet for your accumulator, which makes you bet on a slight underdog with AH (+2). In both cases, if the underdog loses not more than by a goal, you will win, and a two-goal loss brings you a refund.

What is an Asian handicap prediction?
When a sports better talks about AH picks for betting, he means bets on a team or an athlete to win a sporting event with a certain amount of goals, points, etc being either added to the final score or subtracted from the final score on behalf of this team or this athlete. Thus, if after application of this handicap margin the chosen team or athlete wins, then you win too.
The main distinction of the Asian handicap is that it offers a complete refund of your stake in the case when after application of the chosen handicap the event’s final score is a draw.
Lines are used to measure handicaps. Different sports don’t have the same margins: football and ice hockey are by the number of goals, basketball is by the number of points, while tennis is by the number of sets and games won. The lines can be 0.25, 0.5, 1.5, 2.75, with the weaker team’s line being written as +0.5, +1.0, +2.5, while the stronger team’s line — as -0.5, -1.0, -2.5.
