What is a Live Bet?
A live bet, also known as in-game betting, is a wager that has been placed after the game has started. You can use in-game bets to double down or hedge a bet made prior to the game on lines that develop during the game. If you apply the right methods, live betting – also known as in-game betting – can be very profitable with unlimited betting options. Let’s talk about those methods.
Timing Your Bet
Live betting markets are continually changing, and various game events – such as goals, runs, touchdowns and penalties – can greatly affect the odds and outcomes. Tracking these events and getting a feel for the flow of the game can provide advantages when live-betting. Fast thinking and a quick trigger can be the difference between winning and losing the bet.
Important: Due to the nature of the live event, lines may become unavailable while you are making a bet.
Choose Your Market
Like all bets, choosing the right market plays an important role in your success. With hundreds of sports events on offer, it’s important that your choice of bets is well-founded. One such proven method of selecting a market is to narrow in on a sport or game you know most about. This helps you avoid betting on unfamiliar events and underestimating or overestimating your chances of winning in that market.
Value of Research
When you know the niche or market you are betting on, it is exceedingly important – and advisable – that you learn enough about the players or teams taking part in the game. Previous research on things like win-loss statistics, offensive and defensive statistics, suspensions, injuries, starting rosters, weather, and even referees will help you have a more informed idea of what you can expect when the game starts.
The Benefits of Watching a Game While You Bet
Watching the game while examining the odds of live betting can be important if you put everything into a professional perspective. The advantage of live betting a game you are watching is that you are able judge intangibles like momentum in football and be able to make a more informed decision about which team is most likely to score or win the game.
Avoid Early and Late Game Bets
It is often tempting to tap a team to score many goals once it has started the game, just as it is tempting to place late bets in the hope of a miracle. The problem, however, is that most teams come into play strongly, which is why they play with power before starting to diminish as the game progresses. In terms of close games, the teams are in the forefront and tend to pull down the clock or play defensively and thus kill opportunities. So, sometimes high-scoring games can result in nothing, including a flurry of scoring goals or points at the end of the game after a lame showing at the far end of the game. So what’s the way forward? Well, there is no single solution at all here, but as a general recommendation, you would rather play safe than sorry, and the only way to do that is to base your decisions on reason.
