La Liga Asian Handicap Betting
With smaller margins for the bookies, Asian Handicap betting is a hugely popular way to bet on football, as it also means that there are only two options, rather than three for match betting. Asian Handicap betting is very popular in La Liga, and almost all bookmaking firms will offer it on La Liga and Copa del Rey matches.
Asian Handicap eliminates the possibility of losing money because of the teams drawing, and works in a similar way to point spread betting on American sports. Teams are given a goal handicap, and either team can then be backed with the handicap.
For instance, in a La Liga match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, Barca were priced at 4/5 to win the match, while Atletico were at 9/2. The draw was at 3/1. However, since Barca’s were odds-on, you could instead chose to back them with at -2 Asian Handicap, which was priced at 10/3. This means that if Barca win by three or more goals, then your bet is a winner, and if they win by 2 goals then your bet is a push.
It is especially useful in La Liga to improve the odds of Barca and Real Madrid, who are usually odds-on favourites for every match, to make the bet more worthwhile.
La Liga is very popular in the UK, and it isn’t hard to see why, with players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka lighting up the pitches. The play is generally more attacking than in the Premiership, and teams focus on the ‘score one more than you’ approach.
Spanish sides generally perform very well in Europe, and Barcelona have dominated recently, becoming the first ever team to win six trophies in a calendar year. Real Madrid are also the most successful team ever in Europe, having won the European Cup nine times.
