In cricket betting, “win/draw/win” refers to a betting market where you can place a bet on the outcome of a cricket match as one of three possibilities: either Team A wins, Team B wins, or the match ends in a draw or tie.
This is opposed to the bet type W1 and W2, where you can only predict the winner of the match.
This type of bet is primarily applicable to Test matches, where a draw is a valid outcome if neither team achieves a clear victory within the scheduled playing time.

What Does Win/Draw/Win Mean?
The win/draw/win betting market offers a straightforward and easy-to-understand bet. There are only three possible outcomes to choose from: Team A wins, Team B wins, or the match ends in a draw. This simplicity makes it easy for you to place your bet.
Let us explain you this with an example: Let's consider a Test cricket match between India and Australia, and the odds for each outcome are as follows:
- India to Win: 2.50
- Australia to Win: 3.00
- Draw: 2.75
You decide to bet ₹1,000 on India to win the Test match at odds of 2.50. And if India ends up winning, your winnings will be ₹2,500 which includes a profit of ₹1,500.
On the other hand, if you decide to bet ₹800 on Australia to win the Test match at odds of 3.00 and if your bet ends up winning, you will make ₹2,400 which includes the profit of ₹1,600.
And finally, if you think that the match will end in a draw and you decide to bet ₹1,200 on the Test match ending in a draw at odds of 2.75. You will end up winning ₹3,300 which includes the profit of ₹2,100.

Why is Win/Draw/Win More Popular in Football Betting?
In the context of betting markets, win/draw/win is pretty common in football betting. In football, especially in leagues where there is no overtime or penalty shootout, a draw is a relatively common result. This increases the chances of a draw occurring in a match, making the draw option more appealing to you.
Almost all football matches, whether at the domestic or international level, offer win/draw/win betting options. In football, this betting option is also referred to as a 1X2 betting market, where ‘1' stands for the home team, ‘X' stands for draw and ‘2' stands for the away team to win.
Betting on a win/draw/win keeps the excitement alive throughout the entire match. Whether a bet is decided early in the game or goes down to the final minutes, you remain engaged until the referee blows the full-time whistle.
