We have a different type of betting’s in sports. One of the most common sorts of betting is Handicapped betting.
The Handicap betting is one of the fastest growing betting at the moment, and this setting is applied to different sports like football, rugby, cricket, basketball and tennis in particular.
A Handicapped betting is a betting where the teams are playing are given a handicap before the start of play.
The handicapped betting rule is applied to the matches when there is one dominant team, and the other side is an underdog.
Let’s take an example of a football game where two teams are playing, Team A and Team B. Team A is favorite to win the match and team B is the underdog in this example. Now, Team A will be given a negative handicap like -1, this -1 is the number of goals deficit that is awarded before the kick off because they are favorites to win the match.
Similarly, the underdog team, i.e., Team B will be given a definite handicap, or a goal head start, and it will be represented by +1.
Now if you have made a bet on Team A, then it is mandatory for them to win by at least with two goals difference.
If they have won, then you’d get your fairshare of winning as well. However, if they win by one goal difference, so it will be considered as a draw.
The handicap betting rule will then be applied where you are refunded your actual being.
