Draw No Bet Alternatives
If your bookmaker isn’t offering that type of bet, you can bet on alternative ways.
Betting on draw
Play the amount you want at home or away win. Then, an extra bet on the draw of the same amount divided by the draw odds.
Available amount: #13,000
Match Odds: 1 (8.00) X (4.00) 2 (1.30)
Your guess: 1X
Divide your amount (#13,000)) with the odds for the draw (4.00) (25: 4.00 = 6,25 EUR).
So, you should bet #3,000 on X and the rest (#10,000) on 1.
In case of a draw, you’re getting back all stakes (#13,000). Same as would happen with “Draw No Bet”. If the result is 1, you’ll get 18,75 x 8.00 = #77,000.
