Goal Line Bet Explained
These are often referred to as -1/4 (-0.25) or +1 ¾ (+1.75) goals handicaps . So if you back Chelsea +1.0 & +1.5 (also +1 ¼ or +1.25) with £100, you are effectively betting £50 on Chelsea +1.0 and £50 on Chelsea + 1.5. • If the game is drawn, then the -0.5 handicap bet loses and the other half (+0) is void/refunded. At Betfair, we always offer three markets to cater for any significant changes in the handicap line. The most accurate handicap is usually the middle one listed.
