What Does Draw No Bet Mean?

Have you seen Draw No Bet as a betting option but are unsure how it works?

The Draw No Wager option in a betting market simply removes the result of a draw in three-way markets, leaving gamblers to bet on either a home or away victory. This market is also known as Handicap (0), and you can find it in a football match on the Marathonbet website under the Handicap Markets page.

Once you've figured out the benefits and downsides of Draw No Gamble, it might be a wise strategy to bet.

In this tutorial, we'll go over how this kind of betting works in more depth, as well as the markets where it most usually appears as a betting choice.


How Does Draw No Bet Betting Work?

As previously mentioned, the Draw No Bet option eliminates the draw as an option in a betting market, reducing a three-way market to a two-way market.

What happens, though, if your chosen game finishes all-square? Why is this market becoming more appealing to bettors?

If your match ends in a draw, your bet will not win or lose, and your money will be refunded in full.

This makes Draw No Wager beneficial to gamblers who want to reduce their risk on a bet.

By removing the draw as an option, the bettor gains an extra degree of protection when compared to betting on the typical three-way market, since the bettor is left with just two alternatives — either Team A to win or Team B to win.


Draw no bet examples

With a few practical examples, let's look at the difference between betting on a three-way market and betting on a two-way Draw No Bet market.

West Ham United host Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The following are the prices for the 1X2 market:

West Ham United – 6/4
12/5 for a draw
Bournemouth - 2/1

Because the home team is improving, you decide to bet £10 on West Ham to win at 6/4.

The game ends in a 1-1 tie, which means you've lost your wager.

If, on the other hand, you choose to follow this game through the Draw No Bet market, the two-way market would be priced as follows:

West Ham United – 4/5
11/10 for Bournemouth

While the 'to win' price is less generous than in the typical three-way 1X2 market, Draw No Bet would have favored you in this situation.

Your bet is not a winner since the game ended 1-1. You would, however, have the comfort of having your money returned to you in full — demonstrating how Draw No Bet works effectively for gamblers wishing to reduce risk.
