The 1.5 handicap bet is quite special because it results strictly in a full home win prediction or loss of the wager, hence one must be extremely cautious when making a betting decision.

What is a 1.5 handicap?

The 1.5 handicap, also known as the 1 and a half goal handicap (1 1/2), is a type of Asian handicap bet that many people choose as their primary betting option. This bet is also referred to by another name and term, the Over/Under 1.5 goals bet, and it typically appears in the additional over/under betting options for matches expected to have few goals scored. The nature of this betting type demands confidence and skill from the bettor to hope for a win in this category.

The 1 1/2 handicap bet is relatively common and can be found at virtually any online football betting bookmaker. A distinctive feature of this 1 1/2 handicap bet is that the favored team will give a handicap of -1.5 goals, and the underdog team will receive a +1.5 goals handicap.

How to calculate money for a 1.5 handicap bet

When the match result is a draw, the favorite wins by a 1-goal margin, and the underdog wins: Then, bettors who placed bets on the favorite will lose their full stake, while those who chose the underdog will win their full stake.

When the match result is the favorite winning by a margin of 2 goals or more: Bettors who chose the favorite will win, and those who chose the underdog will lose.

The amount you win will be equal to the amount you bet multiplied by the odds of that bet.

Example of calculating a 1.5 goal handicap

Germany U19 vs Belarus U19 in the European U19 Championship qualifiers. For the Asian handicap market, Germany U19 has a 1.5 goal handicap against Belarus U19. You choose the favorite Germany U19 and bet $100, with the winning odds at 0.8. At the end of the match, there are two possible outcomes:

Germany U19 wins against Belarus U19 by a margin of 2 goals or more (2-0, 3-1, 4-2, etc.), you win the bet and receive 100×0.80 = $80 (you get back the $100 you bet and win $80).

Germany U19 wins by a 1-goal margin, draws, or loses to Belarus U19, you lose the bet and the $100 you had placed.

Experience in analyzing a 1.5 handicap bet for consistent wins

Just like choosing other types of bets, to accurately select this bet, you also need to have basic knowledge, which includes gathering information about the match, and comparing the odds among different bookmakers. Assess whether the handicap is high or low compared to the actual strength of the two teams, and whether the nature of the match requires a tips win or not...

When the bookmaker sets a 1.5 handicap, the chances of winning for the favored team are very high. However, a victory that secures 3 points could still result in a loss against the handicap bet. When the European odds range from 1.25 to 1.30, the favored team is likely to win.

Typically, with this handicap bet, the Over/Under should be 2.5 goals or more. With an Over/Under of 2.5, you should also observe during that period whether the favored team usually wins or loses, but in most cases, you can choose the favored team.

If the Over/Under for the match is 2.75, players should consider this type if, in the first half, the favored team is only leading 1-0 and in the second half, they continue with a 3/4 handicap aggressively betting, then it's likely the match will end with a score of 1-0.

For high Over/Under bets, players should watch the match live and then decide on their bet. If in the first half the favored team is leading 2-0, then it's likely they will continue to win, and the match will result in Over.

Notes when placing a 1.5 handicap bet

Besides watching the match, tracking this type of bet over a short period can give you an easier choice. If during a phase the bookmaker releases this handicap and the majority of favored teams win, you can opt for the underdog without overthinking.

This type of bet results in either a complete win or a complete loss, so you may consider doubling down when you are confident enough, as capital management is a crucial factor for all your victories.

I hope the information provided above will help bettors gain more experience in choosing 1.5 handicap bets and always confidently win against the bookies.
