Asian Handicap is becoming more and more popular in the betting world and is offered from all major bookmakers. However, if you try to play Asian handicap on live matches then you have to be very careful for an interesting feature which can make you wrong.
But first here are some words about betting on Asian handicap for those who are not familiar with it. In Asian handicap some advantage is given to one of the two teams. This advantage can be something like 1.5 goals. Then there is no difference between an ordinary handicap and the Asian handicap. A win with 2 or more goals can beat the Asian Handicap. However, many times you can see something like this – Asian Handicap 1.5; 2 goals. In this type of handicap, your bet is split into two parts. Half of it goes to a bet with an advantage of 1.5 goals and the other half goes to a bet with an advantage of 2 goals. So if the team you supported lost by two goals, half of your bet will be lost as the result beats the advantage of 1.5 goals and the other half will be a returned bet.
So much for the explanations of what is Asian Handicap. Now about our main topic. When Asian handicap is played on a live match it is mandatory to remember that the bookmakers offer their handicap against momentary goals. Thus, if the bet is made before the match in Asian Handicap the advantage of 1.5 means that it can be beaten with a score of 2-0. When playing on live everything is different.
Let’s say you have a match that is currently 2-0 for the hosts. When you look at the Asian handicap section, you can see the offer is +2 goals for the away team. This doesn’t mean that if the match ends 3:0 the Asian handicap would be beaten. Since the current result is 2:0 for the host the required result to beat an Asian handicap of 2 goals is minimum 5-0 or any other score with five goals difference.
This is a feature of Asian Handicap which often confuses the punters and should therefore be considered very carefully before you make a real bet.
Sometimes even with the best and most reliable betting houses a punter can have problems. Most often a betting coupon is gone or a bet is not taken as correct. The latter can happen even if you see it clearly that your predictions are correct. What can we do in such cases?
The most wrong thing you can do is to start raising scandals and threaten the betting house. Usually at such situations the punters say they are going to tell everybody about this case and they will do everything to ruin the bookmaker’s public name and so on.
With such remarks you won’t frighten anyone. You talk with an operator and he or she simply lacks the power to solve your case. They can simply guide you.
So, having left behind the hostility and bad treatment to people, do the following. Contact with the chat and talk to the operator. Show him the number of your bet and ask why it is non-winning.
He will ask you for some information you must provide in order to ensure that he speaks with the owner of the account. He’ll want an access code and this code is different from your password. This is very important. There is no option in which an operator to ask for your login password. If something like this happens just exit the chat. You may be caught in a scam.
The needed code is given to you in your registration and is used as a substitute for your password. It however can’t be used to log into the system. It is just for the conversations with an operator.
What happens if you forget this code? Then they will ask you for different information about your account. If you give it correctly, they will give you a new code and will answer your questions.
If their answers don’t satisfy you and you still don’t receive the money ask them politely to connect you with the chief on duty at the time. He has the power to rule out your case. If he or she refuses to do it, there is nothing more you could do. The betting house is the final instance in your relationship and that limits you. This is one of the mandatory items in your contract that you agreed upon registration.
A match which is a gift for anyone who wants to make money from betting. This is what I will offer you now, though I am fully aware that such things like sure bets don’t exist and if you find some you shouldn’t try to take any advantage of it. However, this is a match in which the victory for the favorite is estimated at 1.72, but in my humble opinion it shouldn’t be greater than 1.2. The difference is huge, right?
Which game is it? This is a match from the second round of the championship of Bulgaria and it is between the teams of Levski Sofia and Botev Plovdiv. Levski, as each year, are among the favorites for the first place in the league and Botev again is between the best teams in Bulgaria, having been sent off in amateur football for financial problems a few years ago.
What can be said for both teams? Botev Plovdiv is a team with rich traditions in Bulgaria. They have made big investments this year for buying new players and among their additions we can see some names from Levski’s squad from last year. All these new signings somehow explain why the bookies offer so high odds for a home win in this match. The team started with an excellent 3-0 victory at home against Slavia Sofia, but Levski is another class compared with Slavia.
Some words about Levski. The most important thing that can be said about them at this time is the fact that the team is ahead in its preparations. This is because the players were getting ready for a breakthrough in Europe, which however, didn’t take place. Levski were surprisingly eliminated by Sarajevo in Bosnia. Anyway, what is important is that the players of Levski are prepared to start the season at their peak. Something that cannot be said for Botev’s players.
That’s why I believe that this match will go in favor of Levski and I believe that the proposed odds for a home win here are much higher than the reality shows.
