What is the meaning of 1 x 2 in football betting?

One of the most popular betting markets is the 1X2 betting market, which is focused on the 3-classic football or soccer match results; Home Win, Draw and Away Win.

Home Win = 1
Draw = X
Away Win = 2

The results are understood by pretty much everyone familiar with soccer and can be easily replicated in every football match around the world.

As there are only ever three football match results, the 1X2 betting market is the most straightforward way for any newbie and experienced soccer punter to make simple bets. However, there are a few key areas where the 1X2 (Home Win-Draw-Win Away) is not quite as easy as first glances may suggest.

When does 1X2 become more complicated?



Complications and confusion can occur when two soccer opponents are playing in a tournament or knockout competition, which includes extra-time.

The 1X2 results are usually paid out against the 90-minute result, which would include any additional time for injuries and stoppages.

Extra-time during knockout matches or one-off match-ups are completely different, so any additional goals scored within the two additional halves of extra time are not used to determine to create the final 1X2 result.


As you can imagine, knock out competitions can sometimes affect newbies and often become the source of much anger, especially when the desired team wins in extra-time after the standard 90 minutes have elapsed.

How to stop 1X2 complications during tournaments or cup competitions?



If you were betting on a cup competition and the two teams could not be separated after 90-minutes; a different approach could make this type of wager more profitable and provide value suggestions against tips and predictions.


This is when you need to bet on your chosen team to win the fixture, back them to progress to the next round or win the tournament. Always remember to bet on the overall winner of the tie rather than only the 1X2 90-minute result in a knockout competition.

Implied odds and real 1X2 probability



Calculating the implied (or suggested) bookmaker probabilities or converting odds will show you how different selections and odds presentations can provide multiple outcomes. Unfortunately, many people misunderstand bookmaker odds, bookmaker motivations and [what odds mean][https://iwinsoccerbets.com/blog/What-do-betting-odds-really-mean]] behind setting the odds values.


We will explore bookmaker motivations in a lot more detail within a different post, but for now we can concentrate on the 1X2 betting odds and help you identify the right data before deciding on the appropriate value and if you should place a bet.


If we take a recent match between Calculating the implied (or suggested) bookmaker probabilities indicate the different sections and how this should be used alongside other more complicated factors to ensure you’re making a valid selection.


Implied (i.e. Bookmaker) Probability = 1 / Bookmaker Odds

So, if we place numbers within the equation above, we can see the range of implied probabilities based on the bookmaker odds. The table, below provides more details about how this could work in practise.

100%

1.10

Hopefully, you can see how a slight change in the bookmaker odds can filter through to other areas.


Finding successful results is about finding the prospect of value within the selections. This means that if you’re finding selections that represent good value you’re more likely to end up with a larger bankroll and positive betting ROI over the long-term. More likely is a step in the right direction, but it is not a 100 certainty.


Good Luck!
