What is Draw no Bet or DNB?
Draw no bet is commonly used when betting on football events. Draw No Bet, which as its name implies, removes the option of a draw from a bet – allowing bettors to bet on either a home or away win.
Example: Manchester United play against Arsenal and you decide to place a £50 bet on Arsenal Draw no bet. The game ends 2-2, and while your bet is not a winning one, you get the full £50 stake refunded. Had you simply bet on away win, you would have lost the entire stake.
You will only lost the bet if you lose the game to the opponent(in this example Man United victory); therefore, you are only looking for win or draw to get a profit or get a refund.
The match outcomes represented by a three-way market. This will be Match result, which offers Home win, draw and Away win( 1, X and 2).
Two-way markets for match result are now seeping into the mindset of European punters. This is done by either backing double chance or Draw no Bet (DNB). Both these bet types are simple manipulations of 1×2 odds, and the knowledgeable punter can easily make both these bet types on their own by backing a combination of home win, draw or away win.
For DNB you have to spread your stake over either home win/draw or away win/draw in a manner that means if the end result is a draw you’ll have your full stake returned.
