Butt, 27, was convicted at Southwark Crown Court of conspiracy to obtain and accept corrupt payments and conspiracy to cheat at gambling
Butt is believed to have sat in silence in the dock as the jury delivered their verdicts, after spending nearly 17 hours in deliberations over four days at court.
Asif, 28, was found of conspiracy to cheat. The charge has a maximum penalty of 3 years imprisonment while Butt could face as many as 7.
During the three-week trial the jury heard that vast sums of money could be made by rigging games for betting syndicates.
