Live Betting is the pinnacle of a betting rush. Use your countless hours of watching football to ‘read’ the game and make predictions as you go. Some of you might not be familiar with the term live betting as it is also known as in-play betting to many players. In short, a live bet is a bet placed during a match. So after it has started but before it’s finished, as opposed to for example pre-match betting where you bet before the first whistle has sounded.
The great thing about live betting is how much the odds fluctuate. With every goal, with every penalty, with every chance, the odds shift. Picking the exact moment to place a bet is the skill that seperates the pre-match betters from the in-play betters. It is a skill that is not obtained without stress and a lot of adrenaline. It is a skill that can make you the biggest profits.
It’s not just about the final score!
With live betting you can get as creative as you can imagine. And you should. Betting on the outcome of a match is far from the only thing you can bet on. And usually not the most rewarding. Use your knowledge of the game, look at players individually; who is likely to make a foul? Who is likely to give an assist or score? These are the interesting odds! Combine these with some of our in-play betting offers and the betting accumulator and a single match can be a gold mine. These offers can include free bets, price boosts and money-back specials.
Thanks to our web based fast responding sports book technology the delay between what you are watching on screen and on your phone is never more than a few seconds. Meaning that you have as little as possible trouble with odds changing while placing a bet and thus have the risk of bets being rejected. When is live betting to be preferred over pre-match betting?
- When there is a strong favourite in a match. The odds for an pre-match outright winner bet won’t be any interesting
- when you notice the pace of a game changing after a substitute or injury
- When betting on Formula 1 where pre-match is a risky venture
- When betting on something like UFC or Boxing where you can gamble on a knockout
Accumulating live bets
Sports are amazing before you never know beforehand what will happen. For betting though, this is a rather unpleasant fact. On the other hand, it is what makes gambling possible. Possible and and as amazing as sports itself. Because who says lightning never strikes twice? Accumulate your bets and let lightning strikes multiple times to make you great wins; the sky is the limit!
