What is a handicap?

“Handicap” is an advantage in goals (baskets, points, percentages or other quantities related to the event that is the subject of betting) for a sporting event that is predetermined and presented to the player in the bookmaker’s offer.

The final outcome of a handicap event is formed by adding the number of goals, baskets or points marked as a handicap to the number of goals, baskets or points actually scored by the team to which the handicap was given.
