Yeah, draw -> Attraction.

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.

Big draw means attraction.

Draw also mean attracting something, like he draw my attention. So big draw is right.

According to Oxford Advanced learner's Dictionary "Draw" refers to attract or interest sb. So here a huge attraction is the right answer.

Behaving as if you are more important than you really are:

He's been getting a bit too big for his boots since he got that promotion.

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.

Sumit said:   1 decade ago
"big draw" is related to attraction.

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

Pujitha said:   1 decade ago
But while speaking about games or sports, draw refers to a result less match in my view.
