Asian-style handicap betting was primarily created as a means of making betting on soccer matches more attractive to the customer and is very popular in the Far East. A handicap is created to give a roughly equal chance to both teams. The favoured team will have to overcome a deficit of goals, while the other team will have a head start in goals.
