Any Other Draw

Today we’re going to talk about the term Any Other Draw when it comes to football betting.

What is a draw?

Lets start with what a draw is. A draw is when both teams score the same amount of goals. That could be that both score nothing (a 0-0 draw) or they both score an amount of goals. (5-5 draw).

The more goals being scored the less likely the score line. It is easy to see how two teams can cancel each other out in order to have a scoreless draw or maybe a 1-1 draw.

It is less easy to see how two team could score 5 goals each.

What is Any Other Draw?

Some bookmakers will give specific odds for specific scorelines, like 1-1 or 2-2. When they list draws like this they can sometimes include “Any Other Draw”, which means:

Any scoreline that results in a draw that isn’t listed anywhere else.

An Example

If you seen the following four options for your bets:

  • 0-0
  • 1-1
  • 2-2
  • Any Other Draw

Then if you placed a bet on “Any Other Draw” you would win your bet if the score was a draw so long as it was 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, etc. If it ends up 1-1 then that was an option you could have picked and therefore you would lose the bet.

Similar phrases

Any Other Draw can also be seen written down as AOD or simply as “Other Draw”. They all mean the same thing and are often used interchangeably.
