What Is 3-Way Asian Handicap?
3- Way Asian handicap betting puts more emphasis on the number of goals a team can score in a football match. Matches can be handicapped by a goal or more depending on the form of the teams that are playing. The fun part of this type of Asian handicap is that a player can actually bet on a weak team by giving them a positive handicap and win the bet. Betting on stronger teams is easy but also tricky in the sense that it has to exceed the number of handicapped goal(s) in order for one to win the bet. A higher handicap increases the risk in a particular for those going for the strong teams but works as an advantage for those betting on the smaller teams. A 3-way handicap also gives you an opportunity to win a draw bet but the bet does not necessarily have to end up in a stalemate.
How to Use 3-Way Asian Handicap
Take a practical example of Manchester United against Norwich City match: Man United (-1), draw (home +1) Norwich City (+1). In this bet, the strong team (Manchester United) has been given a deficit of one goal whereas the weak team (Norwich City) has a head start or rather a positive handicap of one goal. A draw possibility means that the home team, in this case, Manchester United, only has to win by a margin of one goal for you to win the bet. Betting on a negative handicap will mean that Manchester United has to win the match by a goal difference of two goals to win the bet. Bettors on the positive handicap will claim the winnings of the bet if the match ends up in a draw or Norwich City wins the game. As a matter of fact, all that this type of bet doing is levelling the field for players by giving them more options to choose from. Indeed it is on rare occasions that weaker teams pull off a win against big teams in the Premier League and this is where the handicap betting comes in handy.
The Impact of 3-Way Asian Handicap on the Betting Odds
Asian handicap betting offers higher returns for greater risks involved. One-sided matches normally have small odds hence the introduction of handicap betting. Betting on a strong team to overcome the given deficit of goals, for example at One Point AH, will, therefore, increase your earnings as opposed to betting on the same team to win in the traditional 1X2 bet. Betting on smaller teams is equally rewarding with less risk involved but the possible earnings are slightly smaller.
