If you’re looking to learn the ropes of Asian handicapping, this is the most straightforward variant. The 0.0 Asian handicap is similar to the 1×2 market. Here, you are simply betting on either team to win the match outrightly. The only difference is that if a draw occurs, you get a stake refund.

It is also referred to as a level Asian handicap, level ball, or a Draw No Bet market.

How the Asian Handicap 0.0 Bet Works

This level Asian handicap basically starts off both teams with no goal advantage, as opposed to other kinds of handicap bets. Bookmakers often write down a 0.0 Asian handicap when two teams of equal strength are pitted against each other. There is no clear favourite or underdog. As such, there is no +/-coefficient attached to the handicap line.

Consider a match between Champions League squads, Liverpool and Chelsea.

  • If you were to bet on Liverpool 0.0, you win if the team wins the game. If the team loses the game, your bet loses.
  • If you were to bet on Chelsea 0.0, you win if the team wins the game. If the team loses the game, your bet loses.
  • If both teams draw, the bet is void, and your stake is refunded.
