If you are proficient in English, you will immediately know the meaning of this term. In case of a tie, the bet will be void. With this bet you have the choice to bet on a profit for the home or away team. Because you only have two choices instead of 3, the odds will be lower.
A Tie Costs You Nothing
With a 1 × 2 bet you also have a tie that you can bet on. This does not happen too much in practice, but due to the extra choice you have, the payouts will be higher than with the Draw no Bet bet.
With the Draw no Bet you get the bet back if the match ends in a draw. A safe choice when you know that losing is almost impossible when you are betting on a team. Building in this security does affect the amount of the payout.
An Example of a Draw No Bet
In the match Feyenoord against Willem II, there is a good chance that Feyenoord will win. The Tilburgers have not won at De Kuip for years, and chances are that they can only achieve a draw if everything goes well.
A Draw no Bet is then a safe choice. If Feyenoord wins, you take money and if it goes against you and it becomes a draw, it will cost you nothing.
As mentioned, you take less risk and therefore the payouts of a draw no bet are also lower than with the 1X2 bet.
So it is entirely up to you how much risk you want to take with a bet.
Make Use of a Parlay
With a parlay you are going to combine different matches in one bet. Because the payouts increase considerably with a combination bet, you can build in safety in some matches by using the Draw no Bet option.
This way your combination bet is not immediately broken if a team accidentally draws.
