One of the major differences when betting on soccer as compared to the other professional sports is how the moneyline works. In other sports, the moneyline has just two choices: the favorite and the underdog. However, soccer matches have the potential to end in a draw, and thus soccer moneylines have this third option. Thus, it’s called a three-way bet, since you can bet on either team to win in regular time — or for the match to end in a draw.
Some bettors don’t mind the three-way moneyline, as big favorites can be found at better odds because of the extra choice. However, it is in many bettors’ nature to side with one team or another and not root for a draw. Thus, they leave themselves vulnerable to tie games.
As many soccer matches end in draws, one needs to put any stubbornness aside and wager on draws from time to time. Ties can almost always be found with odds of +150 or better before a match, so at least the odds are enticing.
Draw No Bet
For those who find it risky to place a three-way wager, there are ways to mitigate the odds. In soccer, one could place a “draw no bet” wager. This is a two-way wager similar to a traditional moneyline.
If a match ended in a draw, the bet would be refunded. Therefore, one would only lose if the team they picked lost outright.
