What is DNB in sports betting

DNB stands for Draw No Bet, a type of sports betting especially focused on those sporting events in which two teams face each other, such as football or basketball.

The premise of DNB betting is simple: you bet on the victory of a team, with the particularity that if the match ends in a draw, the money bet is returned, and if there is a clear winner (without a draw), you have a high probability of winning the bet.

The uniqueness of DNB betting is that it gives you a 66% chance of seeing your money back: winning the bet (which brings in more money) and getting your money back on a draw, as opposed to the possibility of losing it, which would happen when the opponent you did not bet on wins.

Draw No Bet: meaning and when it is used

"Draw no bet" could be literally translated as "draw no valid" or "no – draw bet". The most widely accepted translation is "draw no bet" because, if a draw is obtained, the bet is invalid, void and the money is returned.

It is also known as "Asian 0 handicap", as it is a type of bet that considers that one of the two teams has to get an advantage over the other. The only difference between a DNB bet and an Asian handicap is the odds offered: usually the odds are lower for the former and higher for the latter.

Dynamics of Draw No Bet bets


DNB bets are very easy to assimilate, since it only requires placing a bet with a clear winner. In addition, there is no possible interpretation of the results and the assumptions on which bets are returned or not are very clear.

DNB bets are widely used by those who do not want to risk too much. It is common, therefore, for those who have little experience, who do not want to put their capital at risk and who prefer to play it safe.

Since DNB betting odds are generally low, it is common to combine this type of betting with other methods. What is the result? The result is an increase in the percentage of profit in case of success, although the downside is that the initial investment is somewhat higher.

Pros and cons of DNB


The main advantages of Draw No Bet are these:

  • They are easy to understand and apply. Any inexperienced or inexperienced person who has bet little in their life and wants to re-enter the world of betting while minimizing risk can place a DNB bet.
  • Ideal for inexperienced users. Some strategies designed to squeeze the potential out of betting are only available to the most experienced punters. However, DNB bets are simple and effective, i.e., perfect for beginners to execute without fear of exposing their betting money.
  • In the event of a draw, the stake is returned. This is one of the main strengths of Draw No Bet: if the match ends in a draw, the punter gets his money back because a draw is considered an invalid result.
  • They can be combined with other methods. Another strength of DNB bets is that they can be combined with other strategies to increase the success rate. Thus, greater guarantees are obtained and profits can be increased.
  • Their odds are generally low. Yes, for those who want to bet in a conservative style, sticking to low odds can be beneficial, but that is also a weakness: as low odds are common, they usually look for specific types of a sporting event to try to raise the odds. That's a good thing, although it has a downside, as we'll see below.

But it has these small drawbacks:

  • To increase the odds, you have to look for specific varieties. Just what we were saying. There is no way to increase the quota without deliberately looking for a specific variety. Sometimes it can be difficult to find it.
  • Combining it requires an increase in the initial investment. Combining a DNB bet with another strategy, such as Martingale, usually leads to something not so good: the initial investment goes up, so you will have to pay more.
  • It is only suitable for events where there are two teams. DNB betting is only valid for sports matches where the probability of winning outside of a draw is 50%, i.e., where there are two teams or participants.

A unique feature of DNB bets is that they work especially well in combination bets. By using a DNB bet on combinations of events with low odds it will be possible to find a higher odds, avoiding losing money if the teams draw.

In short: with a Draw No Bet you have the option to make a steady profit without taking high risks.
