1x2 betting tips overview
Basically all bet tips 1x2 are predictions for the outcome of a sports event (like a football match). Given the versatility of this betting market, every sport with two opposing sides may have match predictions 1x2 offered on Takebet. This is the most popular bet alongside over under totals.
Moreover, win draw win betting tips might be offered not only on the result of a match, but also on the outcome of other in-game “contests”: the team to get the most yellow cards or the team to earn the most corners in football, the tennis player to make the most double faults, etc.
In accumulators, free tips 1x2 are combined with other bet markets, such as totals (over and under), correct scores, handicaps, goalscorers, double chances and many more.
Read on to know more of what a simple win draw prediction can be!
Win draw win predictions explained
A win draw win prediction (1x2) is a bet on the result of a sporting event. Classic 1x2 betting tips are 3-way bets: on a home win (1), on a draw (X) or on an away win (2). However, if we talk about sports with two possible outcomes only (e.g. tennis), tips on the outcome here are also called 1x2, or 12 at online bookmakers. Another alternative name for 1x2 is “money line”.
For match outcome forecasts, football is probably the most popular sport worldwide. It is one of those sports having three possible outcomes to a fixture. Other mass-followed examples of sports with 3-way 1x2 tips offered on them are ice hockey, cricket and rugby.
Example of a three-way win or draw prediction: you bet on the Real Madrid vs Chelsea match in the UEFA Champions League. If you bet on the home side to win (1), you will need Real Madrid to win the whole thing. If you gamble on the draw, you will need a tie score (0-0, 1-1, etc). Betting on the away win will make you wait for Chelsea to win the day.
If we talk about 2-way tips 1x2 predictions, then tennis is the best example of such betting picks. There are two athletes competing against each other and only one can win, no matter what. Basketball, American football and boxing are all examples of popular sports that can be left out of a draw option at many bookmakers, just cause a draw is improbable there.
Example of a two-way win draw win prediction: you bet on the Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal match at a tennis Grand Slam tournament. If you bet on the first one to win (1), then you need Djokovic dominating the fixture; if you wager on the second one to win (2), then you need Nadal to win. These are not full time draw predictions, and the odds are set accordingly.
Being as easy and fundamental as can be, free betting tips 1x2 offer one more great advantage while posing one substantial risk. The advantage is low margins and hence odds that are higher than for almost every other betting market in the same sports event. Betting odds for the money line are the highest in top matches and tournaments, with margins being as low as 1%.
Now, the risk lies in the bookmaker’s ability to predict chances in the 1x2 betting market very precisely, so even low-margin odds rarely offer an edge to a bettor. The favourite in a match almost always gets odds much lower than they should be given the chances, so betting on Real Madrid to win with the odds of 1.10 (-1000 American; 1/10 Fractional) is rarely a good idea.
Note: win draw predictions are full time, offered on a regulation time by default.
Combined predictions: 1x2 with over under, BTTS and goalscorer
The best tips 1x2 are often combined by the bookies with other betting markets in the same match, thus forming a kind of twofold accumulator for one and the same sports event. The advantage of combined 1x2 prediction tips is that the odds are usually higher.
Here are the bets that are combined with 1x2 as a rule:
- Over under goal totals (game and individual)
- Both teams to score (Yes/No)
- Goalscorer (anytime, first or last)
Let’s check out each of these three combinations with examples.
1x2 and over under predictions: this is a combination of a match outcome and a total of goals/points/etc scored in a match or by one side being over or under a particular amount.
Example: you bet on the Golden State Warriors to win in the match against the Boston Celtics and over 222.5 points total. If the Warriors win with a 120-110 score, then you will win too, because in addition to Golden State winning, you have the total of points being over 222.5.
1x2 and both teams to score (BTTS) predictions: this is a betting on the final result of a match plus on both teams to score or not to score.This bet is native to low-scoring sports like football and ice hockey, when a team not scoring a single time is a probable enough event.
Example: you bet on the Tampa Bay Lightning to win over New York Rangers and both teams to score. If the Lightning win the regulation time with a 4-1 scoreline, then you will be a winner as well, because both teams scored in that match, but Tampa Bay got on top as winners.
1x2 and anytime goalscorer predictions: this is a wager on the outcome of an event and a player to score a goal anytime in the regulation time. This is a popular football bet, though it is native to ice hockey as well. Also, 1x2 can be paired with the first or the last goalscorer bet.
Example: you bet on Manchester City to win over PSG and Kevin De Bruyne to score anytime. He then scores the first goal of the match, and Man City subsequently win 2:1. You win too!

Our free tips 1x2 come not only as single bets, but also in accumulators. In such combo bets, a win draw win prediction is tied to other betting types, among them correct scores, goal overs and unders, anytime goalscorer, European and Asian handicaps, BTTS, double chance, etc.

Basketball professional tips 1x2 (money line)
Basketball match results are quite different but easy to understand. Teams score points by putting a ball into the basket — either two, or three, or one point each time — and matches are relatively high-scoring, with 200 and more points scored by both teams, especially in the NBA.
A basketball game cannot end in a draw as it is, but it can go to overtime (OT) if in the regular time both teams tie the game with an equal score (e.g. 105-105 or 99-99). Most bets on basketball are offered with overtime included, and 2-way money line is among them. However, some online betting sites offer to wager on 3-way tips 1x2 predictions for a regular time too.

- FIBA Basketball World Cup

How professionals analyse 1x2 betting market for best tips
Takebet publishes every full time win or draw prediction after an extensive analysis of all ins and outs. Each event is analysed with the use of sporting statistics, result records, current news and our own practical impressions about the last game played by each of the teams or athletes. The specifics really differ from sport to sport, but there are some familiar dots we can review here.
- Recent form and stats: in order to succeed in free 1x2 tips, it is of crucial importance for experts to analyse results and stats of the latest five to ten games in football and some more in other sports, basically from the last 1-2 months. Analysts spot winning and losing streaks, number of goals/points/etc averaged per game (scored and conceded) and their distribution through the games. We dive deep into all offensive and defensive stats of teams and athletes.
- H2H: comparing the teams and athletes in their latest head-to-head matches lets a bettor in on how they typically act against each other, their tactics and trends. Some go unbeaten for a long time against another one or even keep winning streaks, thus having an upper hand in morals.
- Recent news: to predict starting lineups in football and other sports, experts research the latest news on the absentees, the priorities that coaches set and the form of key players. If the latter are not available for the match, then our experts will know how to get the best tips 1x2 ready.
Strategies for a win draw win prediction
Home court advantage is a typical tactic for picking the team that will win a game, but it’s not enough. Betting strategy is a more complex set of rules and observations helping you to place bets with valuable odds and win more often. Takebet uses strategies for betting 1x2 predictions.
Let’s explore a few strategies for professional tips 1x2:
- Betting strategy for a home win in football. Bet on a home team under the following conditions: 1) the home team has won over half of the home matches this season, 2) the away team had less time to rest, 3) the home team will be satisfied only with a win based on the tournament situation, 4) two or more key players of the away team are absent, 5) odds on the home team are around 2.00 (+100 American; 1/1 Fractional).
- Betting strategy for draws in football. Bet on a draw in the following circumstances: 1) draws happen more often in the given tournament than on average in the top 5 European football leagues, 2) at least two of the latest five H2H matches between the given teams have ended in a draw, 3) both teams had at least two draws out of the last five matches with other teams, 4) a draw is an acceptable result for both teams.
- Betting strategy for an underdog victory with high odds. Stake on the underdog to win a game in football and in other team sports under the following conditions: 1) the favourite can afford to lose, especially if there are more important matches right ahead, 2) the favourite is playing after a heavy series of matches, unlike the underdog, 3) the underdog is an uncomfortable rival for the favourite, given the results and dynamics of the previous H2H fixtures, 4) the current match is a home one for the underdog, 5) the favourite fields a weaker roster given the lower priority of the match or the tournament.
