The Alternative Asian Handicap (AAH) is a betting option that works as the standard Asian Handicap, but allows me to wager on a specific gap between the two teams.

In this article, I delve deeper into the Handicap and the Alternative Handicap in Bet365.

What Does Handicap Mean in Bet365?

Handicap betting means adding points to one side of the match before the event begins. Usually, this creates a level ground between an underdog and a favourite.

For example, if Manchester United and Manchester City are playing, and Bet365 feels that Manchester United is the favourite, it may award Manchester City a goal as the underdog before the match starts. Therefore, the match starts on level ground for the two teams.

The handicap result market is predicting the outcome of a match by giving one of the teams an advantage or a disadvantage. Since there will always be a favourite and an underdog, the handicap ensures the two play on equal ground, as per the perception of Bet365.
