What are asian lines, how do asian lines relate to normal handicap line betting, and when would I use an asian line bet. All valid questions we will answer.

What are Asian Lines and why do they exist?

‘Asian Line’ is a term that is going out of fashion in many countries, replaced by intuitive terms like ‘draw no bet’ or ‘double chance’. That said, it is still important to understand what the various types of Asian lines represent as they serve a very important purpose for the serious sports better by providing allowing two outcomes to be bet on (ie. draw and win) at the cost of only a single bookmaker’s margin.

At first glance, it is easy to think of an ‘Asian Line’ bet as being the same as a handicap or line bet, however, when we start talking about handicaps of 0.75 it is clear this only tells part of the story.
