We are both right and both wrong; just checked.

I was sure of the contrary: since I have placed Asian on soccer (for which: they do start from current score).

"For grading purposes, when placing a Live Soccer Asian Handicap wager, the handicap and price displayed are for the match from the point the wager is accepted. Goals scored previously (ie. current score) are ignored for a Live Asian Handicap wager. Unless otherwise specified, all Live Soccer Asian Handicap wagers will be settled "

BUT

If you place a bet on the Seattle Seahawks +2.5 -116, this bet would be graded the same as if it were made before the game began. this is from then they explain The way in which live bets are graded varies from sport to sport, depending on the type of bet placed. Please refer to our Betting Rules section for further clarification of live betting rules by sport.


Sorry for the digression, but I guess it is good to know to both of us.

Where can I find Unibet's behaviour for this matter? bialko suggested they take into account the total score: so they would be right; their live chatting affirmed the contrary. I was not able to find any betting rules for Asian on live events on their terms and conditions.

Any help highly appreciated

Sorry but it's a lost cause. Check the inplay odds on Unibet when a team scores. They change dramatically. Or if a team is winning 4:0 in 87th minute of the game the odds on handicap -2,5 are like 1.01 or something. It wouldn't be so low if it was assian, right? They do take it as a bet placed before the game.

I don't know what T&C say so perhaps you can go this direction, but it will be super hard to get something from them.

Yes, I agree.

They do not address this point at all. I could not find anything about and assumed that they took into account the current score. The point is their live customer service told me I was right in thinking this. Then the exchange of emails where they did not address the point; they just said nonsense: like we do not accept live handicaps.

I was referring to soccer since it's the only sport i bet on.

I have never used Unibet ,so i  don't know the rules there.Someone who uses Unibet can tell us the rules.Judging by the odds it looks that current score count.I have experience with other european bookies and they count the current score , i think the same should be about unibet since they are european bookis.

bet365 doesn't take into account the current score on their Asian lines. I believe betvictor too.
