1. Soccer Question.

What does a soccer handicap line of pk,-.5 mean? Do I lose this bet if the match draws? How does this differ from a -.5 line?

2. PK does not lose on draw, it pushes
-.5 loses on draw

3. Its half your wager on PK and half on -0.5. It means if its a draw, you lose half your wager and push half of it.

pk, -.5 splits your bet into two parts

5. when you bet 2 lines in one bet it's like 50% on one line and 50% on the other

you need to know first what is pk (pick) and what is -.5

6. Thanks, for the help guys. My next question is tougher. How do I determine what a .5 goal is worth?
Sometimes I see different soccer handicap lines on games. One book will have pk and another book
will have pk,+.5. I need to figure out what a .5 goal is worth. I have been using the projected total
as a base. Let's say the total is listed at 2.5,3 -110. I divide 5.5 by 2 and get 2.75 total goals for the match.
Next, I multiple 2.75 goals by .5 and get 1.38. I multiply the moneyline by 1.38. Let's say the moneyline is +110.
I get 151.80. Using the odds converter, I find the win percentage -151.80 equals 60.28% and +110 equals 47.62%.
I subtract 60.28 from 47.62 to get 12.66%. Since it increases the win percentage by 12.66%, this is what the
.5 goal is worth. It is worth 12.66% of the line. Does this make sense or am I way off base?

7. This is referred to as "asian handicap"

Just fyi
