Sports Betting: 1X2 Match Odds Betting

Last Updated on February 9, 2021 by Ben Adams

What Does 1X2 Betting Mean?

1X2 betting simply means there are three possible outcomes of an event represented by 1, X and 2.

1 represents the home team winning the game.

X represents the game ending in a draw.

2 represents the away team winning the game.

This market may also be known as ‘Match Odds’, ‘Match Result’, ‘Match Betting’ or ‘Full-Time Result’.

Either way, it simply means you are betting on the final result.

However, if you are new to betting websites, you can be forgiven for being confused about what 1X2 means.

How To Make Money On The 1X2 Betting Market

Did you know you can use 1X2 bets to help you win every time you place a bet?

You can do this by using a method called matched betting.

The best thing about this is we never need to guess what the outcome of a game will be.

All outcomes are covered so we win each time we place a bet.

The 1X2 betting market is by far the most popular in football, using these bets can help you keep under the bookmaker’s radar.

We cover all you need to know in our 2021 matched betting guide.

Why Is Betting On The 1X2 Market So Popular?

Regular punters like to back their team or bet against a team they don’t like.

As a result, the 1X2 match odds market is the most popular in football betting.

Bookmakers and betting exchanges report the highest volume of money placed on these bets.

1X2 Betting Tips

Most websites that predict 1X2 betting tips will be affiliated with bookmakers.

This means they don’t really care if their tips go on to win or not.

All they want you to do is click on their bookmaker affiliate links.

To make matters worse, they actually only make money if you lose.

With that being said, the best tip I can possibly give is to learn about matched betting.

You can stop studying stats and making guesses and instead start beating betting.

Matched betting puts the odds in your favour and allows you to beat the bookies at their own game.

To start with, you should focus on taking advantage of bookmaker’s new customer account offers.

If you follow the instructions correctly, you will lock in a guaranteed profit every time you complete an offer.

This is so much more rewarding than spending time and money trying to guess what will happen in a game of football.

How To Start Matched Betting

I created an eBook for anyone new to matched betting.

In this book, I explain the steps you need to take in order to make your first £1000 profit from matched betting.

I recommend starting with £200, and I estimate it should take you no longer than 3 months to achieve £1000 profit by spending around 30 minutes a day taking action.

The process is quite straightforward, however, for many people, the biggest hurdle is getting started.

I’ve broken the process down into manageable steps for you to focus on.
