But while speaking about games or sports, draw refers to a result less match in my view.

"big draw" is related to attraction.

If it is "draw" than it is the result of the match.

Game draw can't be small or big (i. E we can't say that match draw with a great difference).

Therefore big draw refers to attracting.

It depends on how it is being said. It gives us a meaning like a big draw when both the words have their different meaning. But as an idiom it means a point or centre of attraction.
