Draw No Bet (often abbreviated to DNB) is a market will allows you to bet on either a “Home” win or an “Away” win only, therefore removing the third “draw” outcome from the bet completely. If the match you bet on does finish all square, your stake will be refunded in full. DNB is increasingly becoming a top favourite among savvy but risk-averse bettors as a slightly low margin two-way wager.

Betting in this market serves as a shock-absorber in case the match ends in a draw, thereby covering the possibility of losing your wager.

All in all, it is a relatively safe bet for punters, considering it returns your stake fully if the match ends in a draw. Draw No Bet allows bettors to back either a Home Win or Away Win, thereby cushioning him in the event of a level-score.

You can bet in this market to:

  • List Icon

    Back a side that has an outside chance of winning (with the security of a draw)

  • List Icon

    Protect your stake should you think that a draw is likely

Therefore, the significance of Draw No Bet is that it ensures your stake in the likely event of a draw.

Now that you have got a fair grasp of what a Draw No Bet means, let's take a closer look at how it functions.

This bet type works by splitting your stake between a side winning and the match ending in a draw.

Let’s consider an example with Barcelona (at home) taking on Real Madrid. You may want to back Barcelona to win the game, but believe that a draw could be on the cards as well. In the more conventional 1X2 (three-way betting) market, you would have been betting on any of the three outcomes – a Barcelona victory (1), draw (X), or a Real Madrid victory (2). If you bet on Barcelona winning the encounter, your wager will come through only if the event unfolds as predicted. However, you will lose the bet and your stake if the game ends in a draw or a Real Madrid victory.

It is here that DNB assumes significance. Betting in this market allows you the extra cushion of removing the likelihood of a draw. Therefore:

  • List Icon

    In case Barcelona pulls off a victory, you win the wager.

  • List Icon

    In case of a tie, you get your stake back (you neither win nor lose).

  • List Icon

    In case Real Madrid wins, you lose your wager.

With Draw No bet, your stake is protected from last-minute equalisers, substandard refereeing and mediocre play during the closing stages that can otherwise be frustrating. However, as a consequence of eliminating the ‘draw’ option, DNB odds are usually lower compared to the traditional Full Time Result (1X2) markets.

But as an upside, you get to keep your stake should the match end with level scores, something that is not a possibility with three-way markets.

Head over to 888sport to find DNB odds of 15/2 on FC Saarbrucken and 109/100 on Bayer Leverkusen in their DFB Cup outing (correct at the time of writing).

Betting in this market is rather simple. Let us consider an example where you want to back FC Smolevichi in their away contest against FC Dynamo Brest.

The odds in the 1X2 market have the home side winning at 24/100 and the visitors at 15/2. The odds on a draw are 5/1.

 DNB vs. Double Chance Bet

A Double Chance Bet is a popular market as well that has huge goods on offer for punters. To beginners, both the Double Chance Bet and DNB market might seem similar. However, there is a difference between the two.

DNB allows you to cushion your stake from the possibility of a draw. It means, should the game finish level, you get back your stake (you neither win nor lose). Conversely, a Double Chance Bet allows you to combine two possible outcomes (from a Full Time Result) into one. This way, it betters your shot at winning.

With a Double Chance Bet:

  • List Icon

    Home or Draw (1X): Your wager comes through if the home team wins or the game ends in a draw.

  • List Icon

    Home or Away (12): Your wager comes through if either the home or away team wins.

  • List Icon

    Draw or Away (X2): Your wager comes through in case the visiting team wins or it is a draw.

With a Draw No Bet:

  • List Icon

    DNB on Home team: Your wager comes through if the home team wins. In case of a draw, you get back your stake.

  • List Icon

    DNB on Away team: Your wager comes through if the visiting side wins. In case of a draw, you get back your stake.

Draw No Bet or Double Chance?

This debate has been contested for quite some time now, considering both these bets have their share of loyalists. But if we were to dig a little deeper, we’d find that Draw No Bet odds are significantly higher than Double Chance odds (comparable from the two screenshots above). This is despite the fact that Draw No Bet seeks to protect your stake in the event of a draw (you don’t win the bet, but you don’t lose it either) while a Double Chance bet is geared to make your wager a winner even if the game were to end in a draw (1X, X2 Double Chance bets).

When you want to back an outsider

Imagine that Liverpool is taking on Watford at Anfield. Liverpool is undoubtedly the stronger team here, but you like Watford's recent form. You want to back Watford for the significantly higher odds they currently have on them. In this case, a Draw No Bet can just be the perfect alternative to a Full Time Result, considering it would still have value if the game were to end level.

When you think a draw is highly likely

It is the UEFA Champions League and Liverpool is hosting Bayern Munich. The hosts have been in awe-inspiring form of late, while the visitors are in a purple patch themselves. You want to back Liverpool, but at the same time, are not keen on ruling out a draw.

This is where the significance of Draw No Bet kicks in. In the Full Time Result market, your wager will only come through if Liverpool goes on to win the match. Throw in a draw, and you would lose the bet and your stake. However, with Draw No Bet betting, a level full time score means you don’t lose nor win your bet, but get to protect your stake instead.

Visit Bethard to find odds of 26/25 on Bayern Munich and 31/4 on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Draw No Bet market (correct at the time of writing).

Stated below are a few reasons why betting in this market has its share of advantages:

Insures your stake

When you have a specific amount of money to bet on a market, you will want to come out with a fair chance at the end. If you are sure about a team being the clear favourites, there is little point of a DNB. However, one of the best parts about this beautiful sport is the uncertainty it creates; weaker squads have been known to defeat titans in the past unexpectedly.

This is why Draw No Bet is vital for protecting your stake, should things not turn out the way as you anticipated. For instance, that forward from the rival camp who you thought would be recovering from an injury turns up on the field and nets a late equaliser. With a DNB, you are covered in situations like these.

A good bet against counter-attackers

Think about the 2015-16 Premier League season. From being relegated in 2008 to becoming the champions seven seasons later, Leicester City’s dream run was modelled on a style that involved absorbing pressure from the onset and then counter-attacking during the latter part of the game.

This tactic worked wonders, considering the roster had young players who were nimble-footed, found space more often and did not have to rely on possession.

If you recall, you’d find most matches that Leicester won in the 2015-16 season were win from behind victories involving late goals from almost-losing positions. The eleventh-minute goals were mostly a result of a worn-out opposition only looking at containing. When it comes to DNB, The Foxes are usually a punter’s favourite.

Offers a great deal of flexibility

While it may not be your best bet in matches with runaway favourites, DNB can serve as an excellent strategy if you think the result will be decided by a hair’s breadth. If the two teams are evenly-matched, this bet type becomes all the more relevant as it enhances the value.

You can create your own DNB odds by working out the odds in the 1X2 market. To do this, follow the two strategies mentioned below:

  • List Icon

    Converting 1X2 odds into DNB odds

  • List Icon

    Calculating your DNB stake

Let’s consider the match where Bayern Munich is taking on Eintracht Frankfurt at home, and you want to back the hosts with a £200 stake. The 1X2 odds are:

Bayern Munich (1) – 121/100 (1.21)

Draw (X) – 27/4 (6.75)

Eintracht Frankfurt (2) –11/1

Calculating DNB odds from 1X2 odds

Considering you want to back Bayern Munich, the formula to work out the Home team DNB odds is:

DNB odds (Home) = [1-(1/1X2 draw odds) * 1X2 home odds]

Therefore, DNB odds (Bayern Munich) = [1- {1/ (27/4)}] * 121/100 = 103/100

Calculating DNB stake

Next, you will have to calculate how much of your £200 stake should you spread across each outcome – Bayern Munich victory and Draw. The formula for calculating the stakes for a draw is:

Draw stake = (Total stake / Odds for a draw) = £200 / (27/4) = £29.63

Therefore, Home win stake = Total stake – Draw stake = £170.37

Bottom Line: You should (ideally) stake £170.37 on a Bayern Munich victory and £29.63 on a draw.

Note: In case the bookmaker doesn’t offer a DNB market upfront, you can calculate your own DNB odds (from the 1X2 market) by following the process mentioned above. However, you can also use this process to determine if the odds (through this method) are higher as compared to the DNB odds on offer by the bookmaker (in case they provide you the Draw No Bet market).

In case you don’t have the provision to bet in the DNB market with your bookmaker, you can turn to Level Asian Handicap Betting. This bet type kicks into action should there be no perceived difference in the abilities of the two sides. Level Asian Handicap considers the handicap to be 0, i.e. both the teams start with 0 goals.

Should the match finish level, you get back your stake, essentially achieving an outcome similar to Draw No Bet.

A typical Level Asian Handicap payout structure is shown in the below table:

Asian Handicap payout structure

Considering scores of matches end in a draw, the Draw No Bet market has proven to be an excellent avenue for the risk-averse punter. While the odds are lower when compared to the traditional 1X2 market, you walk out with your full stake should the scores be level at the end of a game.Also, if you think a draw is on the cards or want to back a side with an outside chance of winning, putting your faith in this market can be a wise move. All in all, it is a bet type with less risk for matches that could go either way.

This market takes out the likelihood of a game ending in a draw from the traditional three-way wagers. For instance, if you back Liverpool in the DNB market against Manchester United, your wager will come through if Liverpool wins. But in case of a draw, you will get back your stake. Simply put, it acts as an insurance against the eventuality of a draw.

No. You neither win nor lose the bet. Your stake is returned.

Draw No Bet acts as a shock-absorber for your stake in the event of a draw. It means that a level final score line cannot erode your stake. A Double Chance Bet, on the other hand, combines two possible outcomes into one. For instance, you can back a Home win and draw in the same bet. In this case, your wager comes through with the home team winning or the match finishing level. Similarly, you can bet on both Home and Away win, wherein your wager comes through with either of the sides winning the game. In case of a draw, you lose your bet.
