A popular Indonesian betting trend on football helps the users determine the probability of winning their favorite teams. This system ranks the teams based on their handicaps, drawbacks, or form to determine the stronger team. In the simplest terms, most soccer matches run the risk of turning into a draw which leaves the punters with no gain, while they lose their money as technically no team has won the game. In Asian Handicap betting, they eliminate the scope for a drawn match, which means that you get your money back if the match ends in a draw. This betting trend is popular all over Asia and is gaining a strong foothold in the European markets.
