What does football betting 1X2 mean?

BEST ODDS ON THE INTERNET FOR 1×2 bets
In the football betting 1X2 format there are three possible outcomes; team ‘A; to win, team ‘B’ to win, or a draw. You have to choose which of these 3 will be the outcome. This ordinary soccer bet; win, draw or lose is the classic 1×2 bet. For example, England v Germany 1, X, 2, where you can bet on a win for England, a win for Germany or a Draw – there are no other results*.
So, quite simply this is a reference to the old days that the middle age generation will remember. Back then you walked into a bookies rather than bet on line, and on your betslip for each match was three choices:
– a “1” – standing for home win.
– a “2” – standing for away win.
– and an “x” – standing for a draw
