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 therefore, this is the most common betting line you will find at US sportsbooks.
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 you believe the match will end in a draw you bet on x
An example of 1×2 betting can be seen below:
- Everton +140 (1)
- Draw +225 (x)
- Chelsea -105 (2)
Everton won this match 2-0, so if you backed them at $100, you would have netted $140 in profits.
