What is Live Betting?

Go to any reputable, leading online sportsbook today and you’ll find a live betting option on practically every single sporting event. Indeed, it’s the way forward in the sports betting industry, only a matter of time before it’s available at every single online sportsbook.

The cutting-edge betting option elevates sports betting to a whole new stratosphere, offering sports enthusiasts and action junkies the world over more than ever before: the ability to bet on sporting events as they unfold. Therein lies the crux (if not the appeal too) of live betting. Its ability to take you right into the heart of the action –almost as if you were part of the event.

Sports bettors can live bet everything from NFL, NBA, NHL, Soccer, Baseball and Tennis, and more. The things that are offered for betting include every touch of the ball, first play, pitch, throw down the field, serve, and every point or score, and so on depending on the sport involved of course. As well, the types of bets available cover the wide range sportsbooks already offer up so every sports bettor is sure to find what they’re looking for.

How it Works?

From sportsbook to sportsbook the live betting interface will look different simply because of design preferences and software used, but the practice essentially remains uniform. That’s the most important aspect: understanding how it works.

First thing to take stock of is the fact that live betting moves at the pace of the sport involved. In most cases it can be pretty quick such as soccer or tennis so sports bettors have to be quite focused in on the game as the bet. In others such as NFL where the game incessantly starts and stops a sports bettor has a little bit more time to contemplate bets.

Live odds appear before any ‘play’ then they either disappear or lock after any ‘play’.is completed before the cycle repeats again. Sports bettors can place a whole slew of bets – choosing from various propositions – on the manner or outcome of a play. The best bit live bets are settled almost immediately so any winnings/payouts appear instantly in your account.

How To Live Bet Wisely?

As with anything new and unknown it’s important to not get carried away. With all betting it’s wise to bet within your means, knowledge, expertise and sensibilities. So it is with live betting too.

Live betting is a lot of fun but the non-stop betting thrills offered by this avant-garde option can lead bettors to go over and beyond by placing bets every 30 secs. It’s not necessary to bet on every single play or outcome. The trick to successful live betting is to pick your spots wisely.

That should become readily apparent as you follow your choice sporting event on TV or online. In fact, that leads us to another hard and fast rule of live betting: never bet a game you can’t actually watch. It’s madness to attempt such a thing and ill advised.

Keep these two guiding principles in mind and you’re sure to have a lot of fun betting on sports using the live betting option.
