Whats wrong with soccer betting

I have been browsing thru the excellent Smarkets prediction markets on soccer (a.k.a. association football). You have 3 possibilities for betting:

– the home team wins-
– the home team loses-
there is a draw.

The soccer rules (which allow for a draw) make me uncomfortable for betting on the outcome of a match. How can you assess the probability of a draw? I don&#8217-t get it. The Soccer Federation (FIFA) should get rid of &#8220-draws&#8221- in soccer. As for forecasting and betting, it is annoying.
