Asian Corner Betting

To fully understand Asian corner betting, it is essential to break down the concept into steps and consider the increasing benefits along the way.  First, there is the choice to bet on corners: why would you and how does it work? Second, there is the standard handicap market for betting on corners: how is this better? Finally, how does Asian corner betting improve your chances even more?

Corner betting

There are so many ways you can place a bet on a corner.  You can choose the total number of corners, selecting between over, under and exactly.  You can opt to predict the team that wins the most corners, gets the first corner, or is most likely to score from a corner.  A race bet on corners allows you to gamble on which team will reach a set number of corners first.  You can also limit your bets on corners to the first or second half; betting on the time of the corner; odd or even number of corners and which player will take the corner.

In short, there are a lot of, but some of these options are not so brilliant and waste your time and money.

The corner bets to avoid include the timing of the first corner, which is almost impossible to predict based on any sort of skill.  You are trusting to luck.  Also, selecting an odd/ even market might seem you have a 50:50 chance of success but the odds will be poor, and you will lose 50% of the time.

Handicap corner betting

A development of corner betting is the standard corner handicap.  This allows you to extract more value from your bet.  Where the match-up between teams is obviously in favour of one side over the other, odds will be poor.  Manchester City playing Accrington Stanley is a David and Goliath match-up of epic proportions.  Therefore, the odds on Man City getting the most corners are going to be poor.  You can improve your return by starting Accrington Stanley ahead of City, with City starting – 5, for instance.  With this system, Man City would have to get 6 more corners that Accrington for the bet to succeed.

This system of betting gives you more control over your bet.  You can choose the handicap and so impact the odds.  You can design the bet that gives you the best chance to get the highest return.  We like this because it takes genuine skill and analysis of form and statistics.

Asian corner betting

Asian corner betting is similar to standard handicap corner betting.  Asian betting can be applied across the markets on football and essentially acknowledges that one team is better than the other.  It is a market that began in Indonesia, hence Asian betting.

As with standard handicap betting, you decide that one team will need to win more corners for it to be a fair contest.  Most gamblers acknowledge that there is little point in backing the favourite.  Over time the odds are such that you will lose money.  However, betting on outsiders depends on a turn in fortune that your gut might not believe will happen.

Asian corner betting, as with standard handicap betting, allows you to design the bet, increasing the value by handicapping the favourite.  Asian corner betting is different because you have the chance to retrieve your stake if it is a tie.  This means there is the standard win/ lose option.  However, there is the third option of a draw, where all the favourite has done is cancel out the handicap.  At this point, the bet is considered void, as there is no winner, and so it is as if the bet did not happen.

The takeaway

Betting on most corner markets is exciting.  Increasing the value of your bet requires skill and so more engagement in the challenge.  Being able to retrieve your stake if your handicap is wiped out and there is no winner sustain your enjoyment in this market.  Asian corner betting is a way to increase the excitement of watching the match, as well as employing skill to design the bet, as well as feeling fairly treated when you haven’t technically lost.  This is the reason to seek out the Asian corner betting market.
