Asian Handicap vs. European Handicap Did you know there was a difference? Who even knew that there were two different types of handicaps, let alone the difference between the two? In European Handicaps, you have 3 outcomes and with a handicap included. It also usually shortened terms (EHCP +1) (EHCP -X) (EHCP-1). In Asian Handicaps, the most common bets remove the draw. Those Asian Handicaps which include the draw are the whole number handicaps (see above – “Single handicaps”), but even with these bets, the stakes are refunded in the event of a draw when the handicap is included. Now that you are aware of this, do not mix European Handicap odds with Asian Handicap odds. To help you, I have compiled the following list of bookmakers offering European Handicap odds:
888sport, Bet365, Bet-at-home, Betfair, Betinternet, Betsafe, Betsson, Blue Square,(now part of Betfair) Bwin, Gamebookers, Ladbrokes,Marathonbet, Nordicbet, Offsidebet, PaddyPower, Paf, Sportingbet, Stan James, Titanbet.com, William Hill.
Later, I include a list of bookmakers offering Asian Handicap odds. This is in the interest of fairness.
