What Does ‘Draw’ Mean in Sports?


A draw happens in sports when both teams score the same number of goals or points and neither wins the game. It is also known as a tie and is a result that can happen in the vast majority of sports.

What Happens in Sports Betting When Teams Draw or Tie?

This depends on the sport and your selected market. In sports where a tie is a rare outcome such as Football, Hockey, Basketball and Baseball, the bettor’s wager will usually be returned to them if a tie happens.

In sports such as soccer where a tie is a common result that you can actively bet on, then your bet will be lost if you placed a wager on either team to win the game.
