  12. ASIAN HANDICAP: THE ASIAN HANDICAP IS A FORM OF WAGERING TWO HANDICAPS.

    EXAMPLE: “TEAM A” IS -½ &-1, WHILE “TEAM B” IS +½ &+1. IF YOU ARE PLACING A WAGER ON “TEAM A” IN AN ASIAN HANDICAP, YOU ARE PLACING HALF OF YOUR WAGER ON “TEAM A” AT –½ AND HALF ON “TEAM A” AT -1. IF THEY WIN BY EXACTLY ONE, YOU WOULD WIN YOUR –½ HALF WAGER AND PUSH ON YOUR -1 HALF WAGER. IF YOU PLACED THE WAGER ON “TEAM B” AND THEY LOST BY 1, YOU WOULD PUSH ON THE +1 AND LOSE THE +½. THE ASIAN HANDICAP CAN BE EXPRESSED AS EITHER TWO NUMBERS SPLIT (-½ &-1) OR AS A QUARTER NUMBER. IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE IT WOULD BE “TEAM A” -.75

    THE FOLLOWING IS THE TWO DISPLAY VERSIONS OF THE ASIAN HANDICAP:
    -.25 = (PICK & -½)
    +25 = (+½ &PICK)
    -.75 = (-½ &-1)
    +.75 = (+½ & +1)
    -1.25 = (-1 & -1 ½)
    +1.25 = (+1 & +1 ½)
