Handicap betting gives teams points headstart in the race for the Premiership
title. All the odds are the same for each team, but the amount
of points needed to win are less the higher handicapped they are.
For example, Newcastle have been given a 22 point start by some
bookies. At the end of the season 22 points will be added to the
total of Newcastle's points along with the handicaps for all the
other teams added to their totals. The handicap leaugue table
is then calculated the team with the mosts points, won plus the
handicap, the winner of the handicap championship.
