Introduction to 1X2 betting Market

In football betting, “1X2” is referred to as three-way betting market. It is one of the most common type of football betting market. In this article, we will give you the best possible explanation of 1X2 betting markets.

For every football matches, there are three (3) possible outcome. It is either the home team win, the match end in a stalemate (draw) or the away team win the match. In football betting, the possibility for the home team to win is written in short form as 1. More so, “X” is used to represent a draw while the possibility of the away team winning is written in short form as “2”. Together, this is written as 1X2 which is known as the three-way betting market. To win a three-way bet, the punter must correctly predict one of the three possible outcome (1 or X or 2). We recommend reducing the three-way bets to two-ways bet (double chance) to reduce the risk and stand a better chance of winning.
