Asian Line

The Asian line is exclusive for soccer betting, and you can bet on handicaps or totals.

The Asian line gives you two chances to bet in one (two lines + a single odd). The risked amount and total winnings are divided into two bets with equal amounts.

Asian lines will always show two values with a half-point difference, generating a double chance for the player to cover what is wagered in the event of a tie or push in one of the lines.

Take, for example, the following line:

If we bet $100 to win $110, choosing a line of over 2.5 and over 3, the bet is divided as follows:

Line Over 2.5 Over3
Bet Risk $50 / Win $55 Risk $50 / Win $55

If the score is 3 to 0, then the result of your bet will be:

Line Over 2.5 Over 3
Bet result Winner Tie or push
Win / Loss The risked amount + the profit are reinstated Only the risked amount is reinstated

Advantages of the Asian line

  • More attractive prices.
  • Double chance of winning.
  • Double chance to cover the risky amount on each bet.
