Handicap means that a virtual goal has been given to a team (sometimes the weaker team) which means that the team is ahead by one goal by virtue of the virtual goal awarded. For example, if there is a match between stock city: liverpool (handicap 1:0) , if the total goals scored at the end of the game was 1:2 in reality, it would be a draw due to the virtual goal which makes it (2:2).
handicap 1:0 means that the home team has been awarded a virtual goal.
handicap 0:1 means the away team was given a virtual goal
handicap 2:0 means the home team has been given 2 goals ahead of the game
handicap 0:2 means the away team has been given 2 goals ahead of the game

It implies that any handicap game you play can only be decided after the one goal advantage has been considered. For instance, if you place a handicap bet for a game Chelsea-Man united. And Man united is given the one goal advantage. If the game ends with the score 2-1,the bet will be decided by the score 2-2. see http://www.pinnaclesports.com/online-betting-articles/09-2012/soccer-handicap-betting.aspx for more explanation.
