Handicap Introduction 让分 玩法介绍

  Handicap betting – also referred to as the ‘spread’ – involves giving one selection a virtual deficit (a handicap) to overcome at the start of an event. Conversely, choosing another selection in the same market will usually involve that selection receiving a virtual start. If your chosen selections score is greater than it’s opponents after the handicap has been applied, your chosen selection is deemed the winner.




  Handicap match betting also offers the opportunity to back the ‘Handicap Tie’ selection. Choosing this selection is effectively betting on the match finishing in a victory for the team receiving the virtual deficit (-1, -2 etc.) by the exact winning margin offered. This is best illustrated in an example, please read on:

Manchester United vs. Liverpool ends in a 3-1 victory to Liverpool. Prior to the match the Handicap Match Betting was offered as follows:

Liverpool (-1) 2/1
H’cap Tie (-1) 9/4
Man Utd (+1) Evs

  Backers of ‘Liverpool (-1)’ would be winners as Liverpool’s score after the handicap has been applied is greater than their opponents, 3 minus 1 = 2; this is greater than Manchester United’s final score of 1.Backers of ‘Man Utd (+1)’ would lose as Man Utd’s score after the handicap has been added on is not greater than their opponents, 1 plus 1 = 2; this is not greater than Liverpool’s final score of 3.

Important: The handicap is only ever applied to your chosen selection, it is not applied to both sides to determine settlement.

  Backers of ‘H’cap Tie (-1)’ would also lose as the finishing winning margin is not equal to the handicaps offered. In order for this market to win, the match would have had to have finished in a Liverpool victory by an exact 1 goal margin, e.g. Liverpool win 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 etc. If the handicaps offered would have been ‘Liverpool (-2)’, ‘Man Utd (+2)’ this selection would have been deemed the winner.
