Asian Handicap betting was invented in the late 90s by Joe Lee, a Malaysian bookmaker. He wanted to eliminate the draw result and reduce the bookmaker’s advantage. It has become increasingly popular since then and is now offered at many sportsbooks both online and offline.
After it was first introduced, Asian Handicap betting quickly became a popular type of wager. It spread throughout Asia, Europe, and ultimately the United States. This type of betting has now become one of the most-used forms of sports wagering in the world. In recent years, Asian Handicap betting has also been used in other sports that have traditionally used a point spread, such as basketball and baseball.
