Creating our draw no bet tips

We look for the strongest fixtures and teams statistically when creating our tips. It is important to follow a strategy and study the form rather than just taking a shot in the dark if you want to see regular returns on bets that are more likely to be successful.

You can create your own strategy to make a draw no bet tips acca however if you haven’t already done so check out what we think you need to factor into your thinking. Strong teams playing away from home are often a good choice, where the odds between the two sides are very close.

We also think that tournament football, such as the Champions League is an ideal ground for the draw no bet market, where the better sides often consider an away draw a good result. Of course, we want these sides to win so we too win or bet, but remember the draw no bet gives us our stake back in the event of a draw.

Draw No Bet Strategy

The draw no bet market is almost a clever way of betting in itself, rather than just another football betting market. By betting clever you can ‘cover’ your stake by choosing the fixtures that offer this market. (usually all). Draw no bet is not only another market but widely considered a betting strategy in itself. 


There are many things you should take into account if you want to bet on the draw no bet and within our draw no bet strategy we look out for the following considerations;


There are two things you’re looking out for with the draw no bet market. The win and the draw. It makes sense then to look for fixtures where a better team is playing a weaker side. Yes themay be maybe lower but just in case the top team is having an off day, the bet is covered by the draw, where the stake will be returned.


We think, as part of the draw no bet strategy, that strong teams playing away from home are reliable for this bet. We also think a stronger, defensively sound, team will see the win part of the bet be successful. Don’t just look at the top leagues across Europe either. There can be some real value found in the lower leagues.


Make sure you’re betting with the right bookmaker. Of course, the choice of bookie is up to you and there are many to choose from. Check the odds on the win-draw-win market and draw no bet market. Compare them and stake your bet accordingly.

Take your stake and divide it by the draw odds in the win draw win market. This amount will be needed to win your full stake on the draw. Take the remainder of your stake and multiply it on your chosen team’s odds to win. By doing this you might find that the returns should be higher than the odds offered through draw no bet. But because you are covering yourself it’s better to accept this. Remember that odds will be lower for draw no bet but you’ll get the stake back in the event of the honours being even at the final whistle.

Other factors

It goes without saying that a little research on players and teams form should be taken into account. Check the players in form, injuries and competitions and remember as part of your draw no bet strategy serious consideration should be placed on lower league football.
