Most players in BC prefer to bet on the net the outcomes of matches, i.e. the winner (football, hockey, basketball) / player (tennis player, boxer, etc.) or draw, but, according to the bookies, at least 77% of fans bets make bets with handicap (handicap), so the lines of each of the office they are always present.

The handicaps appeared in the 40-ies of the last century. When the team is clearly different in strength, this was reflected in the coefficients — is in no hurry to risk a tiny percentage, betting on the favorite, and hope for a happy case with an outsider => people put a little, and the bookies lost income.

Handicap or handicap is a bet on the result with some adjustments. It is negative (for the favorite), and positive (for the outsider). Fora can be points, second scored the goals.

Ставки на форы (гандикапы). Что это такое и как понять

Bet with handicap wins in that case, if the completed match virtual to add Odds. If your team after such a virtual mathematical operations were in win — rate has passed. If lost — no luck. But if the score had been a draw (only possible with integer — valued edge- 0, 1, 2 …), then the bet is returned with coefficient 1, that is, the money is not lost and can be re-used in the business.

The use of odds ratios changes (relative to the normal 1-x-2 outcomes). This is the main feature of the odds, which allows to increase revenue from rates.

For example, the odds on your prediction are small. This is what happens when team strongly differing in strength, and the bookmaker lowers KF. to a minimum (of 1.10-1.25 and below). The probability of winning this bet are very high, but the potential profit is usually deters reasonable player, and rightly so. To win only 15% with the risk of losing the bet in case of an unexpected defeat of a leader — too high a price error and a big risk.

This condition is valid little trick. It is clear that the rate will be held only in case of victory of the selected command. Victory means that one team will score another 1 goal more. Accordingly, the handicap bet (-1) on this team won’t lose. And if I will win 2 or more goals? Rate held, and gain is not a 15% rate, and at least 40%.

So, in case of victory of the Lakers 90-88 who played the handicap of -3.5 will be defeated, because with its view of the result of the 86.5-88. If the player took the handicap guests, then won, since the result will be 90-91.5 in favor of the Celtics.

In the case of hit results in a narrow gap between the handicaps and we win in one and a second office!

In our case it is the result with a difference of 5 points. For example, 96-91. Rate in the 1st branch gives off a handicap of -3.5 points 92.5 points, i.e. >91. And the rate in the 2nd gives 96.5 points guests and escrow 96-96.5. In the end, we win twice. Put into operation the question how вс1е appropriate and what is the probability to catch such a benefit at a distance, but it is an option. In any case, better to catch up than to increase the bet each time twice. According to the laws of probability theory, someday you will definitely make money.
