European Handicap Betting Terms
European handicap is a relatively simple type of bet where you only need to predict which team will win or if the match will end in a draw after 90 minutes. The following are the few terms used in this type of bet:
1X2: European Handicap Bet
1: Bet on the home team to win
2: Bet on the away team to win
X: Bet on a draw
1X: Bet on the home team to win or draw
2X: Bet on the away team to win or draw
Of course, you will choose one of these options when participating in the European Handicap Bet in any match you want.
Asian Handicap Betting Terms
In Asian Handicap Betting, you have to predict the winning team based on the odds provided by the bookmakers. The odds will depend on the analysis of the two teams' information before the match. Each match will have different odds.
In the Asian Handicap Bet, the two teams are divided into the upper-handicapped team and the lower-handicapped team. Therefore, the terms used in this type of bet are more complicated than those in the European Handicap Bet and include the following:
Half Time (HT): The time between two halves of the match
FT (Full Time): Bet for the whole match
ET (Extra Time): Bet for extra time
PEN: Penalty kicks

Correct Score (CS) Betting: Betting on the final score of the match
Odd/Even (O/E): Betting on the odd or even total score of the match
Over/Under Betting Terms
Over/Under Betting is also one of the three main types of bets in online football betting. In this type of bet, bookmakers predict the total number of goals that both teams will score during the official playing time. Based on that, you can make a betting decision as follows:
If you predict that the total number of goals scored in the official playing time will be higher than the odds, choose Over.
If you predict that the total number of goals scored in the official playing time will be lower than the odds, choose Under.
The terms used in Over/Under Betting are as follows:
O/U: Over/Under Betting
O (Over): You predict that the match will have more goals than the odds
U (Under có nghĩa là Dưới): Bạn dự đoán trận đấu sẽ ra Xỉu.
