I will try to explain the way i understand it with examples, but I believe experts will be able to put it better.

Arsenal - Hull
Here, Arsenal is 1 (Home team) while Hull is regarded as 2 (Away team). Thats how betting recognises them.

0-2 2h or 0-2 2handicap means that Hull has been awarded 2 goals ahead (before the start of the match).
If you bet 2h, it means you support Hull to win on 2handicap and it means that you win your bet if the full time score of the match ends 0-0, 1-0.
If the match ends 2-0, 3-1, 5-3, etc (2 goals margin) in favor of Arsenal, you lose because it will be tantamount to a draw (because Hull has been awarded the 2 goals ahead).
Same if match ends 3-0, or Arsenal wins by more than 2 goals margin, you lose.

So, you just need Hull not to lose by more than 1 goal or not lose at all.

The same is applicable to 0-1.
If you bet on Hull Handicap, it means Hull must not lose at all.

There are other combinations.

For instance, if you bet Arsenal - Hull 0-2 xhandicap. This means that despite Hull being given 2 goals ahead, to win, Arsenal must win the match by 2 goals margin, like 2-0, 4-2, 3-1. The 2-0 will become 2-2 in betting because Hull has 2 goals ahead.

I hope I am able to put a little light on your doubts.
