1 or Whole balls betting
Anyone familiar with football betting will know the standard handicap system well: this is the groundwork of whole-ball Asian Handicap betting. These odds are shown as a whole figure with a plus or minus, such as -2 or +2, to indicate the handicap amount. Betting on an NHL team like the Montréal Canadians to win +1 against the Boston Bruins in regulation would result in a return if the Habs win or draw in that game.
0.5 or half-balls betting
As teams can’t score decimal goals, for example, they have to win by a total that still exceeds the other team’s count plus their own handicap. For example, taking the Calgary Flames with a -1.5 Asian Handicap to win on the night means that they have to win by two goals, such as 2-0 or 3-1. If you were to take the Ottawa Senators at +1.5, though, you win if they lose 1-0, tie, or win with any scoreline. It’s important to remember that when you take Asian Handicap odds at Mr Green, you’re only reliant on the outcome of your specific bet, and don’t need to worry about the other side of the line that you don’t take. With half-ball Asian Handicap betting, the result will never be a tie.
