This type of wager is common among the top bookies like bet365, Unibet, Betvictor and William Hill. What it means is that a punter is given a 2-in-1 option of placing a bet. It is normally displayed in either of the following forms: “1 or 2”, “1 or x”, “2 or x”. Even then, the odds or these wagers are extremely very low mainly because the chances of winning this type of bet are very high.
What “1 or 2” means when a punter decides to go with it is that whichever teams win in that football match wins the punter a bet. So if for example a football match between FC Basel and AC Milan FC, if any of the teams win and yet the punter had placed a bet on “1 or 2 “ wager, he/she is entitled to a payout.
With “1 or x” wager, it simply means that the gambler has a chance of winning the bet when the home team ( represented by 1) wins, or when both soccer teams end up in a draw regardless of whether they scored against each other or not.
Lastly, the “2 or x” wager is closely similar to “1 or x” wager except that the away team here is represented by the value of 2. Thus, the gambler only wins the bet if the two teams draw or if the away team wins.
For those gamblers who want to make money no matter the size, they can bet on “double chance” wager. Although the payout might be too little, at least they are almost certain of winning the bet. However, it is not advisable to use huge stake with this type of wager as it involves a high risk and yet the payout might be very negligible.
