0-0 Results

0-0 results may not seem that common, so we thought we would have a look at the statistics to investigate. Not many punters bet on 0-0 results, but betting on 0-0s, or against 0-0s, can be useful in a number of ways.

Check out our statistics below showing the percentage of games that end 0-0 in the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1.

Also check out the football leagues that had the most 0-0 results last season.


How Often Do Games End 0-0?

As you can see from the past 3 seasons' 0-0 statistics for the top 5 European leagues, the percentage of 0-0 results in a season is consistent at around 8%.

Eight percent of all games end 0-0 - That's approximately one 0-0 result for every 12 to 13 games played. When you consider that a normal Premier League weekend contains 10 fixtures, then you can almost expect one of those fixtures to be a 0-0, or at least on average you will see two 0-0 results for every three match days played (30 games).

What is surprising about these 0-0 statistics is how consistent the number of 0-0 results is between leagues.

Across all games played in these 5 top European leagues over the past 3 seasons, out of 9140 games, 725 were 0-0s! That's an overall average of 7.93%.

In summary, 0-0 results are worth thinking about when it comes to betting!

With all of the above in mind, bet365's bore-draw money back has to be one of the most overlooked and under-rated offers out there.

Use 0-0 Refunds To Your Advantage

Because your selected stakes are refunded at bet365 if ANY game ends 0-0, and assuming on average around 8% of games will be 0-0, you can use the bore-draw refunds offer as an insurance when you bet. Here are some examples and ideas to consider.

  • Look for low scoring games (or leagues) and back the 0-0 correct score and another correct score, like 1-0. You are effectively getting a free bet on the 1-0 scoreline on 8% of all matches you bet on in this scenario (on average 8% of the time the game will end 0-0, but even a higher percentage if you choose your games carefully and choose those leagues or teams that are more likely to be low scoring).
  • Don't back match winners anymore. Instead bet on the half-time/full-time market, because you will be refunded every time a game ends 0-0. For example, instead of backing Man City to win at home at odds of 1/3, back Man City to win at half-time and win at full-time (win-win), and back them to draw at half-time and win at full-time (draw-win). The only Man City win scenario you have not covered is for them to be losing at half-time and winning at full-time (lose-win), which you could also back, but it is the least likely Man City win scenario for half-time/full-time betting, so you could leave it out to maximise potential profit. If Man City draw 0-0 then all of your half-time/full-time bets are refunded. Had you just backed Man City to win, you would have lost your stake when betting on the match outcome market if the game ended 0-0.
  • Don't back draws anymore. Instead bet on a selection of correct scores. Because your stakes are refunded if the game ends 0-0, instead of just backing the draw, back 1-1, 2-2, and even 3-3. You are probably more likely to get better odds on average across these scorelines, than backing the draw. If the game ends 0-0, all three correct score bets are refunded.

Best Leagues For 0-0 Results

So, now you know you can get your correct score, half-time/full-time and scorecast bets refunded when any game ends 0-0, you're probably thinking - which are the best leagues to bet on where it is more liklely that games will finish 0-0 and my bets will be refunded?

Check out our list of leagues below which had the largest percentage of 0-0 results last season. You will see that many are obscure, lower leagues, but sometimes this is where the value is as opposed to betting on the popular and more well known leagues.
