European handicap as well as Asian handicap is a market that serves to equalize the strength of both teams / players, also seeking to equalize the odds. It’s a way of encouraging people to bet on the team that is paying too little. Why a team when it is very favorite gets a fairly low odd from the 먹튀 betting sites.
