When you bet the money line on any soccer game, there can be three outcomes, also known as 1 x 2. The home team (1) can win, the away team (2) can win, or the match can end in a draw (x).
In regular season contests, such as the English Premier League, all matches are determined in the standard 90 minutes of play. Plus any time added on for injuries and substitutions.
Three-Way Soccer MoneyLine Betting Explained
- If you think the home team will win the match outright, you bet on 1.
- If you think the away team will win the game, you bet on 2.
- If A draw would be when the two teams have the same score when the final whistle is blown, and you would bet the x for that outcome.
An example from the 2018-19 English Premier League season of the 1×2 betting would have been the match March 17 with Everton at home (1) at odds of +140. The draw (x) at odds of +225), and Chelsea away (2) at odds of -105.
Everton won the match 2-0, so if you bet on the 1 for $100, you would have won your $100 back plus $140, for a return of $240.
