Sports bet advisor – Bet types


Bet types

The over 1.5 is the most used bet type, which consists of predicting the number of goals scored in a certain game. Over indicates the amount of goals, which must be higher than a pre-established value. The value, in our case 1.5, indicates the number of goals scored within the 90 minutes of regulation (the additional ones are not considered). Betting on an event over 1.5 basically means a prediction that the goals scored by the teams involved in a given match will be greater than one (so for example 2,3,4,5 and so on). We will use our bet advisor and use a practical example to better clarify what over 1.5 means.



If you decide to bet on “Over 1.5”, and the match were to end 1 to 0, you would lose the ticket.  This is because the sum of goals scored by the two teams would be lower than the established value 1.5.

Let’s say you decide to bet “Over 1.5” on the Napoli-Juventus match instead, and the match were to end 3-2. In this case your bet would be a winner because the sum of goals scored during the match would be equal to 5. Therefore, far higher than the pre-established value 1.5.

You can also think of betting on “Over 1.5” on a particular game from a more general standpoint. It’s a bit like betting on anything to happen except ending with 0-0 or 0-1. Before betting “Over 1.5” on an event or bet advisor suggest that you study the current state and past performances of the teams. This is because relying on statistics to decide on taking the Over isn’t always the most accurate. Clearly the bookmakers will tend to make odds to the “Over 1.5” very low for teams accustomed to score a lot. On the contrary, odds can be very high for those teams that have trouble scoring goals. The good news is that this season the “Over 1.5” is occurring more frequently than in 2015/16. The Bundesliga is confirmed the leader with the most “Over 1.5” in percentage. 

Asian Handicap

The Asian handicap is a relatively new football betting option in the Italian betting market.

The term was made in 1990 by a British journalist who was wrote articles on the trends of the economy sports betting.

The Asian handicap, is a type of play that balances the technical skills of the two teams. The skills of the two teams are usually not balanced. With all handicap bets, you bet on the matches that will be played between a disadvantaged team. A favored team is given a very low stakes to prevent you from generating high profits. The Asian Handicap consists of attributing a disadvantage to a team with higher technical performances. This secures a higher and more attractive quota for the bettor. The bet consists of predicting what the outcome of a match will be. It also takes the handicap set by the bookmakers into account. This is the advantage equal to one or more goals for the team that is not favored.


Even the most inexperienced bettors will be able to see the disadvantages of certain teams. You can examine the training, performance, fitness, and more between the teams. Betting on low odds results may seem “safe”, but this doesn’t match up in the world of sports betting. Unpredictable variables can always come into play, which will change your results. Let’s look at an example to better understand:

By providing a handicap -1, Juventus will practically take away one goal. Picking 1 (Juventus) with handicap, at an indicative odds of 1.60, in order to win the bet Juventus must win with at least 2 goals. For example 2-0, 3-1, 4-0 etc, would all be winning scores. When playing X (the draw) with handicap, at an indicative odds of 3.50, in order to win the bet Juventus must win with  an exact 1 goal difference. For example 2-1, 3-2 etc.

Picking 2 (Capri) with handicap, at an orientation level of 5.00, to center the prediction, Carpi must win or draw, this type of play is equivalent to a double chance X2. Foreseeing a handicap -2, Juventus will be removed two goals. Then picking 1 with handicap, at an indicative odds of 2.60. In order to hit the tip Juventus will have to win with at least 3 goals. For example 3-0, 4-0, 4-1, and more. Playing X (the draw) with handicap, at an indicative odds of 4.00. In order to hit the tip Juventus will have to win exactly 2 goals. For example 3-1, 4-2, and more. Playing 2 (Capri) with handicap, at an indicative odds of 2.20, to hit the odds, the Carpi must win, draw or even lose but with only one goal difference.


To win a bet by picking 1 (Juventus) with an Inter handicap (-1), the favored team, in our case Inter, will have to beat Crotone scoring at least 2 goals.

So if the match ends 1-0, you win the bet, but if it ends 0-0, your bet will be lost.

By betting X (the draw) with an Inter handicap (-1), you will only win your bet if the game ends with 1 goal difference. While betting 2 with an Inter (-1) handicap, only a draw and a win could allow you to win the card. The same applies to the prediction 2 with a Crotone handicap (+1). The Asian handicap associated with under / over works differently.

Here are two examples:

Over 1 – You win the ticket in case of 2 or more goals made during the match by both teams.

Under 1 – To win the ticket, the match must end 0-0 and if the total number of goals is more than 2, you will lose your bet.

Using Asian handicap bet advisor techniques provides the possibility of eliminating the draw between the possible results. It is not a very common option though. Bookmakers also offer the possibility of being reimbursed if you are not sure about using a handicap. If you accept the refund you will win a smaller amount. On the other hand, if you lose you will still be reimbursed. This minimizes the risk of losing your budget.
