What does DrawNoBet mean?

We remember that 1x2 is a three-way odds line for the result of a match, but what happens when there can be no draw in a sporting event? For example, if we are considering a tennis match? Or a match that includes overtime? In this case, the bets on winning the match will be two-way, excluding a draw.

For example:

Moneyline odds

Such outcomes can also be designated in different ways, sometimes it is P1 and P2, DNB1 and DNB2, sometimes 1 and 2 or “Money line”.

As we can see, 1x2 is the base bets on the result of a sporting event, in which there can be a draw, and then it is a three-way line, or there can be no draw (or extra time + overtime is taken into account), and then it is already a two-way line. This type of bet is widely used in various approaches to betting, including arbitrage betting.
