The Asian Handicap is one of the popular form of betting and it uses spreads. The bet is very similar to the 1X2 bets except for the fact that the draw outcome is taken down and this will leave you with better chances of winning.

In order to understand this type of bet, you firsts need to get familiar with the Handicaps. These are also known as spread or lines and their significance is to show the relative strength that one of the teams has over the opponent. In all the cases if you are dealing with a team that is favoured, then the handicap is going be negative and this will give the other team that is part of the game equal chances of winning.
