Many inexperienced players, or those new to online sports betting, may find themselves looking at the market and asking, what is 1X2 betting?
Well, 1X2 betting is mostly popular in football and involves betting on the outcome of a match with three possible outcomes, namely a home win, an away win and a draw.
These markets are also known as Full-Time Results, Match Betting or Three Way Betting.
How Does 1X2 Betting Work at SBOBET?
If you’re still confused, here’s a more detailed explanation and include examples.
Basically, the three results of a match between two teams are represented by 1, 2, or X. This means 1 is for a home win, 2 is for an away win, and X is for the draw.
Using the odds from the liveclub online betting site, let’s use the scheduled curtain lifters for the 2017/18 Premier League season between Arsenal and Leicester as an example.
In the Full Time Results market Arsenal are represented by 1 as they are the home team. Leicester are an away team, so are represented hokibet99 by 2, and the draw is X. Looking at the odds, you can see that Arsenal are the favorites at 1.36. Leicester are outsiders, at odds of 8.50, and the draw is priced at 4.75.
This means, using the 100 bet, that bets to win will pay out 136 if they win. Leicester to win is a possible return of 850, while the draw will pay out 475 if the game finishes level.
1X2 bets are also sometimes available in handicap agen bola online terpercaya, as long as there is a possibility of a draw.
Combining Two of the Three Possible Outcomes
It is possible to combine two of the three possible outcomes, using a Double Chance bet.
With this market, you can choose to bet on 1X, X2 or 12. This basically means winning at home or drawing, drawing or winning away, and winning at home or winning away.
By combining the two results, you have a greater chance of winning your bet even if it is for lower odds than in the normal 1X2 market.
Using the match above, Arsenal v Leicester, let’s take a look at the differences in possible returns.
- 1X (Arsenal or Draw) – Chance 1,083. Possible returns of 108.30 for 100 shares
- X2 (Draw or Leicester) – Chance 3.20. Possible returns 320
- 12 (Arsenal or Leicester) – Chance 1.20. Possible returns 120
Using our betting calculator you can determine whether it will be more profitable to combine two out of three possible outcomes using the multiple odds option or in the normal 1X2 market.
Other Sports Using 1X2 Bet
Football is the obvious, and most popular, sport that uses the 1X2 betting market, but it is not the only one.
In fact, many bookmakers will offer this market on any team sport that has a possible outcome of a home win, away win or draw. Therefore, sports such as cricket, rugby and even hockey are becoming increasingly popular among punters using 1X2 bets.
