You’ll need a good understanding of the different betting markets and what they do.
So, what does win draw win mean in betting?
Here’s a closer look.
What Is a Win Draw Win Bet?
A Win Draw Win bet refers to the outcome of a particular football match.
Punters bet on whether it will be:
Home team win
Away team win
You bet on a specific team to win the game at the end of the regulation 90 minutes.
The bet typically runs for 90 minutes (including referee stoppages) and additional time added on by the fourth official.
This means that whether you bet on a home, draw or away win, extra time or penalties usually don’t count, unless specified by the bookmaker. So, if you bet on a winner, you usually won’t get a pay out even if someone wins during extra time.
This market sometimes goes by other names, such as ‘Full Time Result’, ‘Match Outcome’ or ‘1X2’. This is because you bet on an away win, home win, or draw.
Let’s say that Coventry are hosting Birmingham in tense Midlands derby in the Championship. If you bet on a home win and the match ends in a draw or Blues win, you lose.
In addition, if the score is 0:0 at full time, your bet will have lost.
Even if these sides meet in the League cup and the Sky Blue Army are victorious in a penalty-shootout, it will still result in a a losing bet.
According to www.givemesport.com, Real Madrid didn’t lose a home match in over 8 years from 1967-75. A safe bet, no?
A Double Chance bet allows you to cover two out of three possible outcomes of a football match. This means odds can be lower, but you have a greater chance to win.
Asian Handicap betting puts one team at a disadvantage, say -1 goals. This gives the other team, usually the underdog, a better chance of winning. It also makes certain matches much more exciting.
It’s believed that Win Draw Win is the most popular football betting market in the UK.
Advice for Placing a Win Draw Win Bet
Want to place a bet of this kind?
Here are some tips to give you the best chance of success:
Look at Current Form
Always check how a team is playing – looking for patterns. For example, what’s their history against the side they’re coming up against? Are they well-placed for an away win, or do they have a tough time on their travels?
Have they recently been conceding many goals or do they keep a good amount of clean sheets?
This is extremely useful when picking a strategy. For example, betting on the underdog won’t always be a profitable idea. However, if they’re playing particularly well at the moment, betting on them to win could help you make greater profits.
