What is a draw in soccer betting? What to know before placing this type of bet?

When you bet the money line on any soccer game, there can be three outcomes, also known as 1 x 2. The home team can win, the away team can win, or the match can end in a draw.

In regular season contests, such as the English Premier League, all matches are determined in the standard 90 minutes of play, plus any time added on for injuries and substitutions. A draw would be when the two teams have the same score when the final whistle is blown.

For example, on Saturday, March 16, Bournemouth (odds to win were +125) was playing Newcastle (odds to win were +200) at home, while the odds for the match to end in a draw (or tie) were (+180). Bournemouth tied that match up late, and it ended up 2-2 at the final whistle. If you bet the draw (+180) for $100, you would have won you $100 back plus $180, for a total of $280 returned to you.

The interesting thing about betting soccer, unlike other sports, is that once regulation is over, the bet is over. If you bet a match to draw, and it goes to extra time and/or penalties (which happens in tournaments or knock out competitions), no matter what the result ends up, you win you bet.
