Advantages of In Play Betting

Posted by Alex Murphy on May 23, 2015 in

In-play betting is one of the offerings you can find at almost any online sportsbook. This type of bet provides facilities for bettors to place wagers at several instances of a game or event and offers multiple chances to profit on one single match.  Also known as Live Betting or peer-to-peer betting, this option quickly became a favorite for European players over the years, but much lately, it has been implemented in many other sports, including NFL, NBA, Boxing, MMA and College Football.

How to make Money with “In Play” Betting?

With that said, there are several benefits that make “in play” betting highly attractive for sports betting fans. These allow the placement of bets while a match or contest is underway. Most of the time, “in play” betting is restricted to events for which live television coverage is readily available. One difference between non-in-play and in-play bets is that non-in-play debts are generally placed in the system right after the customer orders them. However, with in-play bets, sometimes a time delay is in place to keep dishonest customers from taking offers for bets that have become really favorable for a number of reasons.

If you’re watching an UEFA game and wanting in-play betting, such events in the game as bookings, red cards, penalty kicks and goals could be considered events that would warrant the suspension of in-play bets. This would allow the cancellation of any unmatched bets.

One reason why in-play betting is particularly popular is that it allows for the adrenaline from wagering to keep flowing throughout a game. Traditionally, betting on a game or match involves picking a winner, either straight up, with odds or against a point spread. When you make that sort of bet, you have to wait until the end of the match to find out if you won. Obviously, over the course of the match, you have an idea of how things are going to go, but you’re betting on that match has basically come to a halt while you wait for a final result.

With in play betting, you can add a number of different propositions to your wager list while the game is going on. If you’re watching baseball, you can bet on upcoming performances by batters and pitchers. You can bet on everything from a pitcher’s ball-to-strike ratio to whether a hitter will have a particular outcome at the plate in his next at-bat, whether it’s a walk, strikeout, or even a particular type of base hit.

As long as you have in play betting going on, you can enjoy the excitement of the game and add your own intrigue in the form of these various bets. Keep things interesting the whole time by laying action on the different options that are available to you. This way, the lulls that normally add some boredom to a game never affect you, because you can keep looking for the next in play wager to place. You’ll want to set up an account on the exchange of your choice ahead of the game so that you’re ready to go once the action begins.
