What Is ‘H2H’ in Betting?
H2H (Head-to-Head) betting is a wagering option that allows bettors to bet on the outcome of a matchup between two competitors. The bettor can pick which one of the two competitors will perform better in a match or an event. This type of sports betting is popular in individual sports such as tennis, golf, and boxing. It can also be used in the context of two teams going head to head, such as “Let’s look at the Giants and Dolphins’ previous H2H stats.”
Why is H2H Betting Popular?
H2H betting is particularly popular in events like golf where there is a field of hundreds of competitors. Where there are so many variables it can be hard to predict an overall winner, so H2H markets allow you to focus on the performance of two individuals against each other.
It’s also popular in team sports where it can focus on a specific market between two players. For example, in NFL H2H betting you can bet on things like which QB will throw for more yards or which defense will get the most turnovers.
