Popular Types of Football Predictions

1×2 Football Predictions

1×2 predictions are what most avid football fans would associate with picking a straight winner.

In terms of football betting, this is the most popular route for those who are simply wagering on the outcome of the game.

So, what does 1×2 mean? Very simply, it can be split into three:

  • The ‘1’ refers to a win for the team playing at home
  • The ‘X’ denotes a draw
  • The ‘2’ references an away win.

UK bookmakers will then make an assessment and hand each of the three selections specific odds, which are reflected in fractional betting odds. This means you can see how much money you can expect to win, in comparison to your stake.

For example, let’s say Manchester City are playing Manchester United at home. The former are listed as 1/4 favourites, meaning if you put a £4 stake on, you would return just £1 in profit.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are listed as 5/1 underdogs, meaning if you put a £1 stake on, you would return £5 in profit.

In terms of 1×2 betting, that match would be split as City being the ‘1’, the draw stays the same as ‘X’ and United would be the ‘2’.

Correct Score Predictions

As you may have seen in the prediction tables above, we have tried to determine the exact score for each of today’s games.

Although football appears to be getting more and more unpredictable as the years go on, this has worked in favour of bettors who can benefit from increased odds on correct score predictions.

Of course, the increased probability of getting a score correct means a higher risk, but also a greater reward.

For example, using the Manchester derby as an example fixture again, let’s say we predict the game to finish 1-1. There is no margin for error – the game must finish with both teams scoring one-a-piece.

Determining the correct score can prove difficult, so many bettors instead opt for a simpler selection, such as ‘both teams to score.’

How Our Football Predictions Are Made

Whether you have a strong working knowledge of football or not, attempting to decipher who might win any given game can be made slightly easier using a number of factors.

We have listed some of the key things to look out for that can influence a football prediction.

Home or Away

According to numerous studies, football is believed to have to largest home advantage of any sport. For example, a 2017 study by Sky Sports revealed a 15.9% increase in the chances of a home victory in the Premier League.

However teams like Arsenal, for example, performed better away from home in the 2022/23 season, so it is worth comparing recent form for individual teams both at home and on the road.

Recent Form and League Position

Anyone can beat anyone in football – that is the beauty of it. But momentum is a huge element of what makes successful teams tick, and recent form is as good an indicator as any of their chances of victory.

League position is, of course, a reflection of how teams have performed across the season and is also worth comparing opponents’s standings.

Team and Player Stats

The advent of the internet means hundreds of thousands of football stats are readily available and easily accessible at the touch of a button. We recommend using sites like Transfermarkt, WhoScored and SoccerStats.

Things like the amount of goals scored, goals-per-match and goals conceded are about as good as it gets for basing predictions.

For bets on specific players, you can make astute predictions based off goalscoring stats, as well as disciplinary records such as yellow and red card tallies.
