When making betting predictions for football matches it is natural to want to get the highest odds with the most secure bet. While the first condition is relatively easy to achieve, the second one requires certain skills.
The presence of different bookmakers’ accounts is important for getting the highest odds because if you have many accounts you can compare the odds from different betting houses and bet where you have the best offers. However, making the safest bet could be achieved only by a proper play.
Let’s consider the most popular game – football and the betting options there. The football betting has a major problem being a game with three possible outcomes. This dramatically reduces the profits opportunities for bettors who need a slightly different method of betting. That’s why a few years ago the so-called Asian Handicap was introduced, in which the possible outcomes of a football match are reduced to only two. This provides much greater betting opportunities for every player because it raises considerably the success of the stakes.
When talking about Asian handicap, however, it would be good to look at things from the inside. Consider the match between Bayern Munich and Valencia from this round of the Champions League. Bayern Munich is the favourite in the match, with odds for their win – 1.4. Valencia’s victory would bring 8 and 4 is the odds for a draw. But if you look on the Asian Handicap betting option, you would see that the coefficient for a win for Valencia with an advantage of 1;1.5 is 1.9. This means that if Bayern wins tonight with one goal difference, let’s say 2:1, the one who has placed a pound for Valencia will win 1.45. This is because the stake is divided to two. One part goes to the advantage of Valencia with one goal, which returns the stake from the betting house because Bayern wins with 2-1. The other part of the bet is winning, which is actually the profit of 45 pence.
However, if the bet on the same match for Valencia is for an advantage of 1.5 goals, you’ll get odds of 1.65. If the match ends again with a win for Bayern with 2:1 the punter will win 65p from the betting house.
That’s what I mean when I say the opportunities the Asian Handicap offers are great and allow for various and mostly safer bets.
