What is a 1X2 bet?

Many inexperienced punters, or those who are new to sports betting, may find themselves looking at the available markets and asking, what is 1X2 betting?

Well, 1X2 betting is most popular in football and involves betting on the result in a match with three possible outcomes, which are home winning, away win, and draw.
Basically, the three outcomes of a match between two teams are represented by either 1, 2, or X. This means 1 is for a home win, 2 for an away win, and X for the draw.
This market may also be known as Full-Time Result, Match Betting, or Three-Way Bet.

How do I win a 1X2 bet?

let us use the scheduled curtain-raiser for the 2017/18 Premier League season between Arsenal and Leicester as an example.

In the Full Time Result market, Arsenal are represented by the 1 as they are the home team. Leicester are the away team, so are represented by the 2, and the draw is X. Looking at the odds, you can see that Arsenal are favourites at 1.36. Leicester are the outsiders, with odds of 8.50, and the draw is priced at 4.75.

This means, using a 100 stake, that a bet on Arsenal to win would pay 136 if they’re victorious. Leicester to win is a possible return of 850, whilst the draw would pay 475 if the game finishes level.

The 1X2 bet is sometimes also available in handicap betting, as long as there’s the possibility of a draw.
