What you should know about the different types and markets
- by Ben Little
Over/Under bet – optimal for an uncomplicated start: Over Under bets are a market that is great for beginners and novices. In this bet, the customer only has to say whether a given value will be exceeded or undercut at 22Bet.
In soccer, over/under bets are more or less standard. At least in the slightly more popular games, this betting market can almost always be found.
Rabona Over Under Sports Betting
Beginners who have never placed a sports bet before should perhaps not start with a 3-way bet right away, but place an over/under bet first. This bet is also advantageous because the customer does not have to decide on a team for many bets.
For example, it is very entertaining to hope that some team will score another goal in an over/under bet. Which team wins is practically irrelevant for the bettor in this betting variant.
European handicap – favorite killer in sports betting
Why should a handicap be something positive? This might well be asked by someone who has nothing to do with sports betting.
However, the handicap is often a great advantage in sports betting, because with a handicap a bet can suddenly become very interesting.
But what exactly is a handicap? Basically, it’s quite simple: a handicap in sports is always a deficit designed for the bet.
Handicap betting at Rabona – best bet type
In order to create a handicap bet, the bookmaker merely has to impose a deficit on a team or an athlete, for example a goal against. In practice, this means that a bet on a win is only successful if the sportsman or the favorite overcomes this imaginary deficit and wins the game anyway, or if the underdog overcomes the handicap advantage.
However, with a handicap bet, bets on Bayern Munich have much more attractive odds, so thanks to handicap it can be worth betting on the house favorite. What is often overlooked: Even underdog odds can often become really attractive thanks to a handicap, since a more realistic chance of winning arises.
Asian Handicap – an interesting type of bet from the Far East
With Asian Handicap, a 3-way bet becomes a 2-way bet.
This results in many interesting options that go far beyond the simple handicap already discussed. For example, it would also be possible to realize a double chance bet with an Asian Handicap.
The Asian Handicap 0 (AH 0) is particularly popular, where the customer wins on a successful bet on the winning team and gets the stake back in case of a draw.
However, there are also split handicaps (e.g. 0 and 0.5), where you place two bets on one game. One half of your bet is placed on AHC 0 and the other half on AHC 0.5. This is called a quarter handicap. In practice it looks like this: If you bet 40 euros on AHC 0.25 at the bookmaker, the bookmaker will automatically bet 20 euros on AHC 0 and 20 euros on AHC 0.5.
Attention: The abbreviation does not always distinguish between the European handicaps (HC) and the Asian handicaps (AHC). Often the abbreviation HC is used uniformly in the betting language.
As a rule, European handicaps are always written without the decimal point (e.g. HC +2), while Asian handicaps are always written with the decimal point (e.g. HC +2.0).
