What is a handicap?

When betting with a traditional handicap, points or goals are subtracted from the favourite team. If you bet on the stronger team, it will need to perform better than the handicap for you to win your bet (the handicap will be preceded by the sign “-“). The handicap will in fact be subtracted from its final score. Please note that the betting options are 1, X and 2, and that the standard 90 minutes play time has to be completed.


Everton – Liverpool (-1)

With Liverpool as the favourite team, the handicap is “-1”. The betting options are 1 = you bet on Everton; x = you bet on a draw; 2 = you bet on Liverpool.

1: Wins if the match is a draw or Everton wins (eg. Everton – Liverpool: 1-0 or 1-1)

X: Wins if Everton loses with a score difference of 1 goal (eg. Everton – Liverpool: 0-1 or 1-2)

2: Wins if Liverpool wins with a score difference of at least 2 goals (eg. Everton – Liverpool: 0-2, or 1-3)
